Gift ideas for women’s rugby players
Everyone who plays women’s rugby wants you to know they play women’s rugby. I mean, who wouldn’t? We’ve racked our brains and put together a selection of items below that would make perfect gifts for the rugby player in your life, for the holidays and beyond.
Women’s Rugby Shorts
If your friend or loved one plays rugby but can’t seem to find a pair of shorts that work for them, enter the Clubhouse Shorts! They’re a gift that’s practical, thoughtful, and special all at the same time. Choose from a wealth of colours and patterns to find the one that they’d love the most. But whichever you choose, the shorts’ innovative fit, flexibility, and fabric remains the same: these are the ultimate rugby shorts by women, for women.SHOP CLUBHOUSE SHORTS
…and why not pair your choice of women’s rugby shorts with the Step 1s? The comfiest under short of all time is available in three different lengths, all ideal for those who like to wear a layer under their rugby shorts when playing, or have a lifting or gym short for off the pitch. They’re also comfy enough for everything in between (especially as there’s no dreaded front seam).
Milk and cookies. Fish & chips. Women's rugby and investment ;)
When two of your favorite things come together, it creates something magical.
Allow us to introduce The Retro Short. Combining old-school styling with modern performance, it's a pair of shorts like no other.
The main body is built from TechKnit: a breathable, wicking, four-way stretch fabric with the texture and look of classic, old school shorts, but the fit and performance of modern technical apparel. Plus, we've upgraded these even further by adding side panels cut from our Sportslite Hyperflex fabric (you know it from our super popular Teammate short).
The end result? A retro-style just like you'd expect from us - a wide waistband, super comfy, full-range-of-motion fit.
The Ultimate Training Combo
Want to give the gift of the ultimate women’s rugby training combo? Look no further than our Teammate Shorts and Training Top. Both are great matches for the rigours of on-pitch sessions. In technical, flexible fabric and fitted, performance-based cuts, they’ll stand up to anything you put them through. Gift a matching set that’s ideal for team kit, or mix and match colourways for the more personal touch.
We’re a little tired of blowing through tees in the tackle, not being able to practice scrum binds properly, or getting weighed down in the wet, and we wanted something to train in that behaved like a game day jersey, in a wearable style.
Fitted, flattering, with a slightly dipped hem, and adjusted across sizes, you won’t feel like you’re wearing your brothers kit- this one was made just for you.
In timeless, iconic colourways, the Teammate Rugby Shorts 2.0 are modern women’s rugby shorts – made just for you. We've upgraded these best-sellers to both sub seamlessly into your team strip (*cough*, and to match your training top perfectly)
Features include a wide, lay-flat waistband with interior tie cord, a sculpted waist that comes up higher behind and scoops lower in fron, and a variable leg opening that’s longer inside and behind for extra rubbing and friction protection.
Overall, these shorts are designed for full coverage in scrums and rucks with no bunching or excess fabric, all in a smooth, four-way-stretch material.
Women’s Rugby Shirts
For the die-hards: our Truth Hurts Tee features a white front left chest logo and rear full size print, bearing the iconic legend ‘Thick Thighs Score Tries’. It’s cut from our classic mid-weight Soft Touch preshrunk cotton, so it’s an instant favourite that will feel like you’ve had it forever.SHOP TRUTH HURTS TEES
One of our latest bestsellers: it’s bound to go down well with the rugby player in your life - or any woman you know who loves sport. The bold Sherlock T proudly states what we’ve always known: women’s sports don’t owe you sh*t. It doesn’t take a fictional mastermind to realize we’re here to dominate and do our thing, regardless of what anyone says.SHOP SHERLOCK T'S
The Girl Gang Support Tee is a real crowd pleaser. Part of our premium line, available in six gorgeous colours and cut in a classic, casual Tomboy Fit, it might actually be the nicest rugby shirt you’ve ever worn. Plus, like all our women's rugby tops, it’s ethically manufactured with W.R.A.P. certifications in factories that integrate recycled fibres and solar power into the manufacturing process.SHOP GIRL GANG SUPPORT TEES
Give the gift of the women’s rugby shirt they didn’t know they were missing: the New Tricks Polo meets modern match-day jerseys. It’s a classic look, but without the old-fashioned heavy cotton. Instead, it’s performance-perfect, cut from Sportslite Hyperflex: silky-smooth, lightweight four way stretch fabric. Plus, available in four timeless colourways, you’re sure to find a shirt your rugby-mad loved one will wear forever.SHOP NEW TRICK POLOS
The No Woman No Try documentary features professional rugby players, women’s sports advocates and their male allies, showing the obstacles women have to climb in order to succeed in rugby and shining a light on the abuse they face. If you enjoyed the documentary and want to share the love with someone who is also passionate about women’s rugby, explore our collection for a thoughtful gift: the official merch includes a choice of tops, and the NWNT poster.SHOP NWNT COLLECTION
For a smaller but no less thoughtful gift, check out our selection of laces from Stonewall, a charity which campaigns for LGBT equality in the UK and all over the world. Their #rainbowlaces movement celebrates the presence of LGBT people in sport and raises awareness of the work that needs to be done to achieve equality in games like rugby. Laces include those in trans, non-binary, and rainbow colours.SHOP STONEWALL PRIDE LACES
Give a piece of history with a print from our very special 1991 Heritage Collection, celebrating a landmark moment in the history of women’s rugby: the very first World Cup. Each print is an authentic, original image snapped during a historic moment in women's rugby that, up until now, has been unavailable to the public.
