It wouldn’t be the holidays without a gift to, or from, one of your loved ones that was Toronto Maple Leafs-themed, would it?
It’s two days before Christmas — I know — but if you’re a last-minute shopper like me, or still haven’t found the right gift for someone you’re buying for, this could be the perfect article for you.
Some of these gifts can be found at multiple sports stores, and some are just found at Real Sports Apparel, online or in-store.
Either way, these are the best gifts that I found for that special Leafs fan in your life.

Borje Salming ALS Patch
This is the perfect gift to get any Maple Leafs this holiday season.
If you have a friend or family member who has a jersey, you can buy this patch for them. It comes in at $19.99 and would be an incredible stocking stuffer or little gift for that special person this holiday season.
And guess what? All net proceeds will be donated to ALS Action Canada, “Canada’s only ALS patient-led nonprofit organization building a movement to ensure urgent, equitable access to promising therapies for Canadians living with ALS; more and better clinical trials for ALS therapies throughout Canada; and increased federal and provincial investment in ALS research.”
Even if that friend or family member doesn’t have a jersey, this patch is a nice little memento to have for keepsake.
Matthews 60-goal net twine puck
Who wouldn’t want a piece of history?
This puck has a snippet of twine in it from Auston Matthews’ 60th goal, scored on April 26th, 2022 in Toronto against the Detroit Red Wings.
The puck comes in at $79.99 at Real Sports Apparel and could be the perfect gift for the diehard fan, or for someone who enjoys memorabilia. And hey, you never know, this could be worth something in 20 years.
It would even make a great stocking stuffer, if you had the money for that. But it could also be an amazing gift for someone who’s a big fan of Matthews.
Maple Leafs Next Gen jersey
Are you looking to empty your wallet out a little bit?
The Maple Leafs’ Next Gen jersey is very special because it’s reversible. On the outside, you have an incredible black and blue Leafs jersey, and on the inside you have the drewhouse collab portion.
If you have a hype beast in your life and they love Justin Bieber’s clothing company, drew, you could get them this as a present. There was more drewhouse clothing that was released by the Leafs earlier this week, but it quickly sold out. As did their collab with Drake’s brand, OVO.
You can also get the Maple Leafs’ new Reverse Retro jersey, too, if you’re not feeling the Next Gen one.
Maple Leafs Stemless Wine Glass
Whether you’re a wine drinker, or you just like the type of glass this is, it’s one of the most unique presents on this list in my opinion.
A 17-ounce wine glass that costs $24.99 would be a great gift if you’re looking to buy something small for someone. The best part is, they can either choose to drink out of it, or maybe place it in a cupboard for show.
It’s quite the fascinating find and I’m sure anyone who’s a Leafs fan would be excited to open this gift up when handed to them.
Maple Leafs face socks
Do you have that one person in your life who loves fun socks and is a Maple Leafs fan? Well, you’ve found the perfect gift, or stocking stuffer.
Coming in at $22.99 per set, these socks feature six current and ex-Maple Leafs players including Mitch Marner, John Tavares, Wendel Clark, Mats Sundin, Doug Gilmour, and Johnny Bower.
They’re just not sold at Real Sports either, which is amazing. You can likely find these socks at any sports store in your area, and that’s great if there’s not enough time to order them online.
Just make sure to drive safe if you get caught in the big storm that’s hitting Toronto!
