Whether they’re just starting out or they’re a home-run hitting college student, the athlete in your life always loves a bit of encouragement. Throughout their lives, nothing makes them happier than attendance at their games, and recognition for their hard work. For those who aren’t able to attend every game, there are great ways to show them how proud you are, and they’re very easy! A personalized sports magazine cover is a great place to start, and there are a ton of things you can do with them to make it as personal as you’d like.
Highlight Their Achievements
Whether your star just got his/her first hit or they’re a hat trick scorer, highlighting their skills within the sport is great for their own morale, and growth. This shows them that you acknowledge their hard work and dedication, which only boosts their confidence next time they’re on the field for their next shift.
Use Sport Headlines
In addition to highlighting their strengths as an athlete, this is a great way to incorporate quotes from their favorite athletes, as well as someone they look up to. If they’re a hockey player, this is a great place to include a quote along the lines of “He’s the next me!” – Wayne Gretzky. Additionally, you can show them that you’re their biggest fan with a quote from you about how proud you are — something simple often means the most!
Just because they’re super focused in on the field doesn’t mean the sports themed magazine cover can’t be fun! If your athlete loves his/her red Gatorade, this is a great thing to incorporate into the magazine, with a headline that makes them look like the next sponsored athlete. You can also highlight some of their game rituals, which might include a dance right before their at-bat or the next play. Remember, everything is made to be totally custom and tailored to your shining star!
