Need a last-minute Christmas gift for fans that cheer for the New York Jets? Here are the top five ideas for those that root for Gang Green.
Despite their abysmal season, fans of the New York Jets will forever root for the franchise through thick and thin. Sure, things got really out of hand in 2016 but one thing about Jets Nation is that time heals all. We’re all used to this feeling but after a few months, some great time spent with family and friends this holiday season, everything will be fine again.
For those diehard Jets fans, it might be hard to find something new they don’t already have but these thoughtful ideas will bring a smile to their faces. Considering that they might not actually get it by Christmas, the best thing to do is to order it via NFLShop.com with expedited shipping and give it to them a few days after.
Since the Jets have their final game of the season at home against the Buffalo Bills, some of these Christmas gifts could very well be used for that Week 17 matchup. What better way to end the season at a Jets game possibly wearing something someone special gave to you as a gift?
Without further ado, here are the top five last-minute Christmas gifts to give fans that will forever chant J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS!
Next: 5. A jersey of a possible future franchise quarterback

5. A jersey of a possible future franchise quarterback
While the majority of Jets fans will probably have several jerseys, try to see which one they don’t actually own. For the most part, the best jersey to get that many might not even have just yet would be quarterback Bryce Petty.
As an up and coming potential franchise quarterback, Petty is starting the final few games of the season. This includes the season finale at MetLife Stadium and if your Jets fan is headed to the game, this is the perfect gift to get them so they can wear it with pride.
For $99.99 and free shipping, a Petty jersey is one that will undoubtedly be used over the next few years as he continues to hone his craft. Who knows, if he does end up being the franchise quarterback everyone envisions him to be, that lucky Jets fan would be one of the early ones to get his jersey before he becomes a household name.
It’s best to get a Home jersey since it has the traditional green and white colors. Away jerseys are fine but the majority of Jets fans would prefer a Home one in the grand scheme of things.

At $64.99, there are many great hoodies to choose from for Jets fans. Depending on their style, there are a plethora of options to pick a unique one for a Jets fan. From various logos and designs, it’s great to use in many different functions during the winter.
They tend to last a long time and again, are great for those that live in colder states and have to endure months of unfortunate weather. Make no mistake about it, every Jets fan should have a few hoodies in their arsenal.
