Baseball gifts for boyfriend are one of my favorite things! I have so many ideas for this topic because I’ve been with a baseball guy for 6 years! When choosing baseball gifts for boyfriend it’s easy for the price to skyrocket, because lets face it, quality equipment is expensive, and authentic merchandise is not exactly budget-friendly.
That being said, this list has numerous budget-friendly ideas, in addition to the more costly options, keep an open mind and choose what works best for your budget and your man!
Baseball Gifts For Boyfriend
Having been with a baseball guy for the past six years, I’ve given my fair share of baseball-themed gifts. Attended my fair share of MLB and local baseball games, and of course, learned a LOT about the sport! I cannot stress this enough if you don’t know how baseball works, plan a date night to a game and have him teach you the basics. You’ll enjoy it even more once you learn a little, and he’ll love the gift of the tickets, and the opportunity to share one of his favorite things with his girl.
For our first Valentine’s Day, I got my boyfriend a baseball heart-shaped box of chocolates. It was meant for kids obviously, but I still to this day think it was perfect. It was just cheesy enough for us, and the chocolates were pretty dang good. Most recently for my 25th birthday, my fiancé took me to a MLB game, and custom painted some white vans for me to match my jersey. If you are artistic like him, custom fan artwork, or custom shoes made amazing baseball gifts for boyfriends.
22 Gifts for Baseball Players
Without further delay, here are our 22 baseball gift for boyfriends. The cute, the affordable, the expensive, the practical, and the unique are all bundled into one list. Best of luck picking out the perfect gift for your baseball boyfriend.
Best Catch Keychain
Say ‘I love you’ with this sweet sentimental custom keychain from Etsy. He can put it on his key ring and smile every time he sees it. This is a great baseball gifts for boyfriend for Valentines Day, or an anniversary.
Rawlings (a popular baseball equipment manufacturer) makes these awesome leather baseball wallets. Red stitching and all! Most baseball players are pretty committed to baseball themed everything.
A little cute, a little cheesy, but still a fun gift! Especially if you combine this with some of the others on this list and put together a baseball basket. Check out this baseball tie for your guy.
Wall Sign Baseball Greats
Although just replicas of signatures, any fan of baseball history would love this wall sign with signatures of the greatest baseball players of all time. It’s one of those pieces you can spend hours looking at.
You cannot go wrong with a Louisville Slugger. This bad boy was ranked #1 for high school and college players in 2021. It will run you a pretty penny though, so if you choose to invest in this for your guy, be sure to make sure it’s the right bat, and size for him!
If you’re not looking to commit to the expensive player bats, might I suggest a sentimental keepsake bat? You can customize it with your boyfriends name, and whatever else you’d like to add. This one makes an awesome graduation gift with his name and “class of ___” underneath.
Bat Wall Hanger/Bracket
Favorite MLB Team Hat
You can’t go wrong getting him a classic baseball cap to support his favorite team! If he’s anything like my baseball fanatic fiancé, he may already have well over a hundred caps, so try to go for a cap he doesn’t have yet. 😉
Solid Wood Laser Engraved Coaster
This is a great gift for a boyfriend with his own place and a need for useful household things (like coasters!). They are simple and elegant with a wood finish, and will make for a great addition to any coffee table.
Vintage/Thrift Store Finds
Although harder to come by these days, don’t underestimate the pure joy of snagging some vintage fan apparel. First off, it is just fun to bring back the old unique styles and have some gear that few people will have. But on top of that, there have been so many people who snagged boxes of baseball cards, jerseys, baseballs and other baseball memorabilia at garage sales and thrift stores, and come to find out they’ve struck gold!
Now this one might seem obvious, but what baseball lover wouldn’t love tickets to cheer on the home team! No matter where you sit, the experience of being in the stadium is unforgettable. But if you really want to surprise him, try to get closer tickets! It’s definitely a different experience watching from the first level on the 1st or 3rd baseline, vs watching from the upper levels. I’m a sucker for the third baseline myself, but watch for broken bats and foul balls, and don’t forget a glove!
Oakley baseball glasses
I’ve never met a baseball player without a pair of these bad boys. If he already has some, he may need a replacement pair, and if he doesn’t have any yet, he’ll be stoked when you hook him up with these must have baseball shades. They make a cute and perfect gift for baseball players.
Oakleys not his thing? Check out these Rawlings sunglasses instead.
You can find authentic signed baseballs for high prices, but sometimes the replicas are just as cool to have on display. Check out this Babe Ruth 1930’s signed replica ball.
Authentic Rookie Baseball Card
Do some research and try and find an authentic Rookie card for his favorite player! Sometimes you can find them for a reasonable price under $15 and other times they can cost hundreds of dollars. May the odds be ever in your favor while selecting a rookie card as a baseball gifts for boyfriend.
Again this one can be on the pricier side (most of the genuine baseball gifts are going to cost you more, since you’re paying for authenticity.) Find out his favorite player and team, and score him a jersey! This might be a good one to consult with him before you buy, rather than keeping it a secret, so you can get him exactly what he wants.
Trip to the Hall of Fame Museum in NY
If you live near the state of New York, or you are prepared to book a trip, book a reservation at the Baseball Hall of Fame Museum. This one-of-a-kind immersive experience is a must visit for any baseball fanatic. It would make for an extra special baseball boyfriend gift ideas.
This book documents the story of baseball through the lives to 100 of the greatest baseball players of all time. It is a passionate and insightful look into the amazing significance of the sport. For the man who has everything, this makes an excellent baseball gifts for boyfriend.
Baseball Coffee Table Book
A picture is worth a thousand words, and this coffee table book contains some of the greatest and historically significant baseball photos of all time.
Rawlings Exclusive Heart of the Hide Baseball Glove
Now purchasing a new glove is a big investment. This is another gift where you may be better off providing an IOU and having him pick the glove out himself. If your hell-bent on choosing it yourself there are some things to consider. A real baseball player glove isn’t going to come cheap. It has to be nice quality and sturdy. Many players have a brand and style preferences, plus you’ll want to make sure you get the glove for the correct size and position your guy plays. It’s not impossible to do without his input, but his input will certainly help. I had my fiancé (a former D1 player) pick out the glove above, and it makes a great option! A quality glove can be an unforgettable baseball gifts for boyfriend, and don’t forget, sometimes you can add customization!
Baseball Bat Mugs
These custom mugs make such a cute baseball gifts for boyfriend. I can picture my fiancé coaching, holding one of these cute mugs. They also make great baseball gifts for groups like groomsmen.

This makes a great baseball related gift. Especially for a college or high school player, plus it makes a super cute addition to any Christmas tree.
