Brand New Basketball (Wilson Evolution)
This indoor basketball is one of the nicest and made by a well-known brand. It has great grip and will last kids for a long time.
And what kid doesn’t like having the official basketball of the NBA?
Portable Basketball Hoop
I love that my kids can play basketball on their own but they don’t last as long when their ball is rolling away and they spend more time chasing it than they do shooting.
This smart basketball is so cool! It uses a sensor to detect how many shots are made, the kind of shots, and other metrics like shooting release angle, release time and spin rate.
It really helps boost their confidence seeing what they do well and helps them identify what they need to do.

What I love about gifting basketball decor is that they can enjoy it everyday.
Some really fun decor options are:
I really love the positive messages that kids can learn through sports. And when these messages can be reinforced by posters they can re-read everyday, it really helps those messages sink in.
These basketball string lights are unique and fun. They’re a great addition to a basketball room.
Sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do to get boys to keep their dirty clothes off the floor. There’s a good chance this basketball hamper is the answer.

Does your child have a favorite team? Really any memorabilia is exciting! Do they want to decorate their room, have something to wear or carry around?

Or even just items with their favorite team colors.
The kids have an absolute blast with this inflatable hoop in the pool! Especially with friends over, they’ll wear themselves out for as long as you’ll let them.
