Ranked: Nine best Christmas gifts for a Chelsea fan

Chelsea have had a rollercoaster of a year, entering 2022 with Thomas Tuchel in charge and ending it with Graham Potter.

It has been a period of upheaval, with Roman Abramovich forced to sell the club. After a drawn out bidding war, US investor Todd Boehly emerged as Chelsea’s new owner.

A dramatic transfer window followed with big money deals for Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Marc Cucurella.

Through it all, the love of Chelsea supporters has endured, stronger than ever and there is plenty for Blues fans to look forward to in 2023.

With the end of the year approaching, this is an ideal time to purchase a Chelsea themed gift, in the Black Friday sales in advance of the festive period.

Saving you from the headache of leaving your Christmas shopping till too late, we have compiled a list of the nine best gifts for a Chelsea fan.

These range from kits to pendants, slippers and famous historical newspaper pages. Check out our selection of Chelsea gifts if you want to treat a loved one – or even secure a special present for yourself…

  1. Chelsea Home Stadium Shirt 2022-2023

If you’re a Chelsea fan and you wish to be all smiles this Christmas, the simple solution is to get your hands on this stunner of a home kit.

And now imagine donning this shirt while watching a trademark Thiago Silva sliding tackle and it’s an ideal gift which can be personalised too, with name, number and badges.

That’s one hell of a Christmas gift for any true Blues looking to treat themselves.

2. Chelsea Colour Block Jacket- Sand/Black

Question: has any club produced a more fetching jacket than Chelsea have with this number? We doubt it to say the least and you’d only be doing yourself a favour by copping a jacket as sleek as Mateo Kovacic’s dribbling.

3. Chelsea Zola- Signed Framed Shirt

If you ache for the days when Gianfranco Zola made a mockery of defenders in blue, this framed shirt is a reminder of the days when the Chelsea icon was at his frightening best.

From famously turning Jamie Carragher inside out to his unforgettable dink against Norwich, Stamford Bridge hasn’t seen many better than the Italian.

And the fact that the legendary shirt is signed by the great man himself makes it a truly memorable Christmas gift, if you consider yourself proper Chels.

4. Chelsea Padded Jacket- Grey/Black-Men’s

Have you ever felt like tucking into a stylish Chelsea jacket like Mason Mount after putting on a masterclass at the Bridge?

If the answer is yes, be your very own Secret Santa and buy this belter of a jacket on Christmas to feel like Money Mase.

5. Chelsea Cut Out Crest Pendant and Chain- Sterling Silver

Imagine capping off your matchday look with this stunning piece to watch Graham Potter’s troops to what they do best.

We only expect those that still watch Didier Drogba’s penalty against Bayern Munich and get goosebumps to be as excited as we are about this gift right here.

6. Chelsea Third Stadium Shirt 2022/2023

As far as kits go this season, there may not be a more underrated release than Chelsea’s gorgeous third shirt.

It is never a bad idea to look as slick as Ruben Loftus-Cheek whilst wearing one of the tidiest shirts around and especially on Christmas.

7. Chelsea Tonal Crest Slippers- Black- Adults

Not much screams Christmas like cosy slippers and when they’re black Chelsea ones, it is as much of a no-brainer to buy them as it used to be to start Didier Drogba in a big game.

8. Chelsea Gymbag

If there was a candidate for the biggest steal on this list, it’s this very gift right there. Gymbags never looked this slick but we guess that is just the Chelsea way.

9. Football History told through Newspaper Headlines (Chelsea): A history from 1905

This book is as rare as one would find on any subject revolving around the game, let alone solely focused on Chelsea. For all practical purposes, this book is a time machine that allows you turn the clocks back and explore all things about the mighty Blues.

On a cosy Christmas day, there’s not a more perfect gift we could recommend to a Chelsea fan.
