Coming from someone with a big family—I think I’m up to eight nieces and nephews—the worst part about Christmas is waking up Christmas Eve and remembering that you forgot to get Uncle Jerry a gift. This typically comes the morning after the annual holiday party, which means I have to drag my hungover self out of bed and go to the mall—ON CHRISTMAS EVE! Arguably the worst time ever to leave your house.
Stay in bed, people! Magazine subscriptions are some of the easiest gift ideas in history and I’m not just saying that because I work for this magazine. Seriously, I asked for a sub to another magazine this Christmas. The other cool part? If you subscribe to Racer X Illustrated, you get a free 2016 Racer X Champions Edition Calendar. A one-year subscription runs as low as $9.98. Visit www.racerxonline.com/subscribe to get yours today. Uncle Jerry will thank you later.
There’s another way to grab an awesome last-minute gift while making it look like you planned it all along. Tickets! Lucas Oil Pro Motocross has you covered, so stuff some stockings with tickets to one or more of the 2016 National rounds. Many of the Nationals are running holiday specials, including VIP ticket options. Visit promotocross.com to purchase tickets today for yourself or as the best last minute holiday gift ever!
While you’re out getting a refund for that Old Navy sweater with a snowman your Aunt Edna gave you, log onto the new Racer X Brand site and grab some great winter gear. The Zip-Up Shield Hoodie ($65) or the Men’s Blackwater 100 Long Sleeve Hooded T-Shirt ($30) is a great gift to yourself (or someone else if you’re forced to, but it would hurt to give something so sweet away). Looking for a new hat to pair with your hoodie? We got you covered with the '98 Snapback, the ’98 Trucker Hat or the Shield Flexfit for $25.
Did you mess up and get your girlfriend a set of plastics that were really for you? Looking to make a mends? Check out our Women’s Wide Neck Shield Sweatshirt for just $50.
