The past year has been a tough one, no matter where you live or what you celebrate. That being said, the holidays — a season of merriment, cheer, and, if you’re in the northern hemisphere, some delightfully cold weather — are fast approaching, which means it’s time to start thinking about giving gifts.

Luckily, we’ve got the women’s hockey fan in your life covered, with a non-exhaustive list of gift ideas!

    ** BONUS: Shop Mio’s original designs for the Buffalo Beauts and Minnesota Whitecaps!
    *** BONUS: Preorder game-worn jerseys from the 2021-22 PHF season, or flash back to the past with some ~*~vintage~*~ game-worn jerseys from MeiGray!
