Once again, give the gift of blogs (and a beanie) this holiday season.

Sports blogs without access, without favor, without discretion, and without interference... but WITH a free beanie. Buy your friends and family a one-year gift subscription to Defector and you'll not only get great blogs, but also a fashionable beanie to match. (We have so many leftover beanies from last year. Please take a beanie.)

Note that your gift recipient will receive an email immediately alerting them to the gifted subscription; unfortunately our system does not allow for delayed notification right now. Someone who previously received a gift subscription can receive a second one, but someone with a regular paid subscription cannot receive a gift subscription.
