Other Similar Gift Articles You Should Consider
Less than $20
Lizard Skin Grips were virtually unheard of just a few short years ago, but now permeate the baseball market far and wide. From the Big League to the little leagues these ultra-slick, styled grips have seen plate appearances at the World Series, All-Star game and, more than likely, a little league ballpark near you.
We keep these little add-on items on this list because with the price point, how personal you can make your design choice and the visual impact when added to a bat, the grips are a winner every time. Price Check the Lizard Skin Grip on Amazon.
Better still, the gift is so simple you can’t mess it up. Just follow this Amazon link, look for a 1.8mm version in a color you like and pull the trigger. Easy as that. Shopping complete.

The ProHitter Trainer Batting Aid, like the Lizard Skin Grip above, is adopted at all levels of baseball. It sits on the top hand thumb to give a more firm grip and protect against some hand sting. You can read much more about the details in our review. Here we simply note that it is an awesome gift that few baseball players have and, if they have one already, they’d be happy to get another.

From $50 to $75: Custom Batting Gloves
Franklin Sports Custom Made Batting Gloves may be our favorite baseball gift on this entire list. At under $70 with all the options, it is impossible to beat in terms straight dopeness.
The options for color, personalized writing and so on are endless. You’ve got to check the custom site builder to see what we are talking about. Do note, however, these take up to 5 weeks to process and deliver, so plan ahead.
We suggest the Pro Classic or CFX Pro if you don’t know which ones to choose. It is likely your baseball player will love both.
This gift is both perfectly useful and remarkably meaningful. Any baseball player will not forget whoever gave them these.
$100 to $150: MLBtv Subscription
An MLB TV Subscription is an absolute must for any baseball player (or fan). MLB.tv is hands down the best way to consume more baseball than you ever have in the most efficient manner possible. Via mobile, tablet, computer or TV, any player will love you greater than words can express if this is your gift to them. We seriously can’t think of a better way to spend $140.
Do note, however, if you live in the TV area of the team you follow, then you won’t be able to watch the games live. You will have access to every other game live, though. Local games will be blacked out until the game is over. Highlights, stats and the works are still available.
$200 to $399+: Custom Gloves
A custom made, high-quality baseball glove is the ideal gift for the person looking to deliver a top-notch gift. There a few companies that now do this. Wilson and RICO Gloves began the trend. Rawlings wasn’t far behind.
All three brands are high-quality full leather stuff. RICO is the least expensive and also the least well known. Rawlings Heart of the Hide Custom Gloves and the Wilson Custom A2000 and A2K are more expensive and more well known.
We review our Wilson A2K and A2000 build up close if you want to take a closer look.
The only gift that may actually be better than a custom made A2K glove from Wilson is a custom made bat from DeMarini. This is another example of a gift without budget limitations as these can get pricey, but there isn’t a real baseball (or softball) player in the known universe who wouldn’t fall in love with a one of a kind composite two-piece bat made especially for them.
Custom sheen, personalized writing, grip colors, sizes and weights along with a whole slew of options on bats you never knew existed all create what may be the best gift any baseball player could ever receive.
