So your kid is a massive England rugby fan. And their birthday is coming up. You’ve already planned the (socially distanced) rugby party, rugby ball cake, rugby themed party bags, rugby ball piñata (yes, they do exist). But what about rugby related presents? It’s surprisingly tricky to find an unusual rugby gift that boys and girls will love. Especially one as unique as the Rugby Ball Light.
A replica of the Gilbert rugby ball used by rugby players the world over, the Rugby Ball Light makes an awesome desk or bedside lamp. It sheds plenty of light for doing homework, playing with Lego and reading or – with a lower wattage blub – can make the perfect night light.
England rugby fan and tag rugby player Lawrence got his Rugby Ball Light for his 9th birthday. “I got a few rugby presents this year, but this is definitely my favourite,” he says. “I love it. It looks really cool on my desk.”
The Rugby Ball Light also ticks a lot of boxes for us parents. It’s the perfect alternative to the toys that will inevitably end up cluttering up your house and the computer games that will keep your child glued to a screen all day. An England rugby gift that’s functional, stylish AND “really cool”.
And if you’re worried about the, shall we say, boisterous nature of your rugby playing kids, there’s no need. The Rugby Ball Light is well-built and robust. Just make sure they don’t try and use it as an actual rugby ball…
Just for fun
