It's that time of year again, Christmas is just around the corner making me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Now, we may not have snow or a big tree like the one at Rockerfeller Center but we do have beautifully decorated malls (Pavilion wins hands down this year) and a Home Alone DVD to dwell in the festivities.

I did my Christmas shopping today, which is possibly my favourite part of the season. Or any season really, not that I need an excuse to shop but it's more fun shopping gifts for others and relishing in glee at their reaction (hopefully a positive one) when they unwrap it.

Which got me to thinking about the perfect gift(s) for the Kop at heart that I assume are absolutely fail-proof.

1. LFC Official Membership

Nothing says you're a truer fan than this. Plus you get a member's pack which comes with a cute scarf that you can wrap around the lips of your loud, proud, swollen headed United fiends  friends.

2. Liverpool FC Heroes

More than just an official coffee table book, it gives insight on the personal lives of legends who've played for 'pool the past 50 years. A great addition to any Reds' collection.

Take it to another level, and get 1 of the legends featured to sign off, like this one I received on my birthday :)

Aside from those 2, most importantly what every Kop living in the 21st century needs is...

 

 

 

...a Survival Kit!

The hardest thing for a fan is to watch your team lose. Constantly. Especially, at home ground.

Brendan Rodger's crest fallen expression. Gerrard shaking his head. Suarez arguing with the refs for not penalizing a defender's blatant foul. The team walking back to the tunnel with their heads down. Devastating stuff.

But as fans, you suck it up, continue giving moral support and hope for the best. We'll get our pot of gold eventually.

In the mean time, give a Kop a fun and resourceful kit to cheer them up. Let your creative juices flow with this one.

1. Kleenex: to dry your tears

2. Panadol: to numb that painful feeling in your gut

3. ear plugs: to block out the never ending wisecracks. If I had a penny for every history channel joke I hear...

4. a tub of Baskin-Robbins' Pralines & Cream: because from young we were taught that ice cream makes everything better. Warning: may cause weight gain

5. rubber band: to keep you bouncing back

6. and lastly, this video: to remind you, that you'll never walk alone
