Your Capitals Gift Giving Do's and Don'ts

Thanksgiving is nearly upon us, and with it the official start to the Christmas shopping season.

To help prepare you to do your duty as a fan this season, I prepared a helpful list of gifts to give and gifts to avoid this year.

First up, it's the item that inspired this list. Despite this having been listed as a piece of Washington Capitals memorabilia on the site in question, I thoroughly recommend you avoid . . .

The Bill Guerin autographed Caps Killer picture!

Instead, choose an autographed photo of a truly memorable goal:

If you're tempted to choose something with a little Caps history, be sure to check your spelling carefully.

 

It's Jim Carey

Not Jim Carrey

Kids love hockey cards. Just be careful not to confuse them.

So avoid cards which feature Dennis Leary discussing how much Sergei Fedorov loves soccer . . .

And stick to cards of guys actually in their uniform

When looking for wall art, choose something timeless . . .

Avoid things which may not age well, like oversize novelty tickets commemorating Jaromir Jagr's 500th goal (model sold separately)

A game worn jersey is definitely a top notch gift, but older players get very expensive.

So avoid has-beens . . .

And look to the future instead. 1500 posts can't be wrong!
