Shopping can be really difficult sometimes especially when the people you’re buying for either have everything or don’t supply a list of what they want.

That’s why theSun-Timeshas compiled a list of non-so-average gifts for the Chicago sports fans in your life.

1. Blackhawks stilletto heels

The shoes are perfect for going straight from the ice rink to the club. Better act fast! The NHL shop said they’re almost gone (which is pretty surprising if you ask me).

If stilettos aren’t your style, the team also has pairs of tan and red wedges on sale.

3. A “Dammit Doll”

Watching the Bears can be extremely stressful. That’s why a seamstress on Etsy decided to create a “Dammit Doll,” which is similar to a Voodoo doll.

BONUS!There’s a poem attached:

When you temper is about to to boil because your team has failed to score, here’s a little dammit doll you cannot do without. Just grasp it firmly by the legs and slam it, slam it, slam it, and as you whack the stuffing out yell dammit, dammit, dammit.

4. White Sox Sandwich Press

Step up your sandwich game with this Sox themed sandwich press. Your sandwich will taste just a little better with the “Sox” logo branded on the top (via Top Notch Gift Shop).

5. Patrick Kane Plush Pillow

Get cozy (or not) with this terrifying Patrick Kane plush pillow. It’s worth noting that the size measurements are not proportionate to the actual Patrick Kane. The shoulders are unusually bulky and broad.

6. A Bears S’mores Ornament

Not sure what tie S’mores have to the Bears and the holiday season other than this encouraging, “Score s’more touchdown” pun. If only the Bears could score s’more. They’re averaging just over 15 points per game, which is good for 30th in the NFL.
