At The Game we focus our products on the needs of people who love cricket – a game that they have probably loved for many years and forms part of who they are. We all know a cricket tragic! But what to buy them as a gift? Besides The Game wallets we have compiled a list of gifts we think hit the spot for the cricket passionate in your life:

Eleven Bats - Anthony Harry Moffitt

1.Book: Eleven Bats, Anthony ‘Harry’ Moffit. Amazon $22.00 

A refreshing and compelling story. Anthony 'Harry' Moffitt spent more than twenty years in the SAS. An improvised game of cricket was often the circuit-breaker Harry and his team needed after the tension of operations. He began a tradition of organising matches wherever he was sent. It's a book about combat, the toll that war takes on soldiers and their loved ones, and the healing power of cricket. A great read.


Paulette Farrell Cricket Artist

 2.Art: Paulette Farell - Prints from $45.00, Originals from $180.00 


We love UK based Paulette’s unique style and capture of many aspects of cricket. We use Paulette’s artwork on our gift cards, but also think her paintings and prints make great gifts for those who have a deep appreciation for cricket and love to see it expressed in art form.


Stabo Cricket Hip Flask

3.Personalised Items: Hip Flask by Stabo $56.00

Here is an item that is so well made. Hand made leather case with a stainless steel hipflask. Personalised option for both front and back makes this a special quality gift.




The Cricketer Magazine Subscription

4.Annual Subscription: The Cricketer Magazine $149.58

There is no shortage of cricket magazines on the market, but the pedigree and authority of The Cricketer is hard to beat. Yes its focus is the English game, but it caters for all cricket fans worldwide. A great monthly package of articles, match reports and intelligent insights to the county and international game, from a wide range of highly respected cricket writers and others! A monthly gift in the letter box to savour.


Roman Vintage Cricket Tie Pin

5.Tie Clip: The Roman Vintage Shop. $67.54

Sophos Cricket Bat Tie Clip Tie Bar: Vintage Gold Tone - Stand Out from the Crowd with Class. Vintage Tie Clips are an excellent addition to any wardrobe and add a sense of subtle style. Tie Clips are a timeless classic that provide an opportunity to add a bit of personality. We love this and certainly believe that subtle is cool. 

So, some fantastic choices and varied options for the cricket passionate in your life!
