    With Christmas fast approaching, it’s time to start thinking about Christmas shopping for friends and family, not to mention creating your own Christmas wish list. We’ve put together this little guide in the hope to simplify your Christmas shopping this year for the cricket lovers in your life. Our handy guide will help make gift-giving more personal, thoughtful and less stressful. You’ll find some great gift ideas, no matter your budget.

    Buying presents for a loved one can sometimes seem daunting, especially if you’re not sure what’s hot and what’s not in the world of cricket yourself. So let’s kick things off with a few ideas we think your friends and family would love to find in their Christmas stocking this year.

    Romida cricket selects only the finest range of cricket balls for matches and training. We stock a variety of colours and types for different purposes: including superior quality leather balls, indoor cricket balls and tennis-ball style balls. You can’t play without them. One of our favourites is the Gray Nicolls Crest Special White Ball. You can get your hands on it for only £16.95. The machine-stitched two piece cricket ball is perfect for T-20, made with grade 2 Chrome Leather, two Piece construction, has a soft shell lining and a durable Lacquered Finish.

  • salix bat wax

    Bat Wax

    Our next suggestion for your stocking filler is our cricket bat care range. We stock products you need to cherish your stick including grips, fibre tape, anti-scuff and linseed oil. Take a look at our Salix Bat Wax. Salix Bat Wax is basically linseed oil in a solid state which both seals and nourishes the wood in an easy and controlled application. This is the product Salix use in their own production in final polishing.

    The wax has been especially formulated for us: after years of seeing bats either insufficiently oiled, or drenched brown by an overzealous pouring, we thought cricket bats (especially handmade bats) should get the same treatment as furniture or shoes. Bat Wax acts like an oil by nourishing the willow, like a protective wax by sealing the grain and like a polish as it buffs up after application to make the blade shiny rather than oily.

  • Kookaburra Kahuna Pro Batting Gloves (2022)

    Batting Gloves

    Another great gift idea and a vital part of your cricket armoury is our batting gloves. (Depending on the size of your stocking), we love the Kookaburra Kahuna Pro Batting Gloves (2022). The pro level Kookaburra Batting Gloves £79:95 are very comfortable with superb protection.

    Tested to Romida protection level 5, the Kookaburra Kahuna Pro Batting Gloves has Poron XRD protection on fingers. Poron is an incredibly protective material that effectively freezes on impact – greatly reducing impact injuries. Grade 1 quality with high traction pittards ‘quartz’ leather.
