Remodelista Gift Guide: For the Sports Enthusiast

November 29, 2011

As beautiful as they are useful: a quick roundup of ideas for the sporty members of the family (given the trend for using sports equipment or vintage gym equipment as decor, we wouldn’t worry about stowing these pieces away).

N.B.: To make sure we’ve got everyone on your list covered, we’re running a new gift guide every weekday from now until Christmas. You can see all of our gift guides to date at Remodelista Daily: Holiday Gifts.
