Whether you like it or not, its time to get started with holiday shopping. Now c'mon, no complaining. You dont want to leave it until the last minute like last year, do you? Well do you??

Great local sports team gift ideas that everyone on your list will absolutely love! Yes, this year, give the gift of Greater Lansing sports! What does that mean? Spartan stuff for Dad! Lansing Lugnuts stuff for your buddies! Lansing United stuff for...everyone!

The Nuts and Bolts store opens up in the Meridian Mall soon, so get over there!

Don't forget Lansing United! The area pro soccer team is up-and-coming and you can make someones day by getting them Lansing United gear for Christmas. They call themselves the Sons of

Think local this year for holiday gifts. And not just local, but local sports. Hey, when the home teams are this great, it makes gift giving a breeze!
