Is there a special mom in your life that has been known to murmur "Whodey" in her sleep? If so there is no question that she would love anything related to the Cincinnati Bengals for Mother's Day. Even if you are buying for a casual fan, all signs point to 2012 being a good year for the Bengals, so what gal wouldn't be keen on expanding her repertoire of orange and black?
Here are a few suggestions that would make any Bengals fan roar with delight on Mother's Day:
Nike Cincinnati Bengals Women's Basic Logo T-Shirt - Black, $24.95 - This is a simple, classic, short sleeve Bengals tee shirt. It doesn't have a lot of girly frills, but is made to fit a woman's figure which is important - no lady wants to wear boxy men's Bengals gear. The short sleeves are great, because the recipient of this lovely gift doesn't have to wait until football season to enjoy it and show her Bengals' spirit.
Tickets to Bengals "Taste of the NFL" - $150/per ticket - Having been fortunate enough to attend this event last year, I assure you it is a dream come true for any Bengals fan. You have the opportunity not only to casually chat with many of the Bengals players, but also to sample some of the tastiest food and drink to be found in Cincinnati. The tickets are a bit pricey, but this is a fundraiser for Cincinnati's Freestore Foodbank, so you can feel good about your purchase.
Cincinnati Bengals Ladies Rain Boots - $94.95 - If you have ever been to a Bengals game in the rain, you know how much strategizing goes into gearing up to stay dry so you can still enjoy yourself despite the weather. These boots are a great first step, and they can be worn again and again for years to come any time puddles prevail at Bengals games, other sporting events, or just around town.
Cincinnati Bengals NFL Garden Gnome - $24.95 - Perhaps you are looking for a Mother's Day gift for the Bengals fan whose wardrobe is already riddled with team attire; this garden gnome is perfect. It is the ideal choice for the fan who thinks she has it all - until she unwraps her gnome! Now she can display her Bengals pride among foliage and flowers for all passersby to see.
All Expense Paid Trip to New Orleans for Feb 3rd - $$? - This is a gift for the Bengals fan, and gift buyer, with the optimism and faith to believe that the Cincinnati Bengals will be playing in the Super Bowl, February 3rd, in New Orleans. It is a game no Bengals fan would want to miss, and New Orleans is a great city to visit regardless. Why not get a jump on airfare and a hotel room?
