Replica shirts


With the team sitting mid-table in the Premier League, replica shirts are always a great idea for a present - with or without personalised names and numbers on the back.

The Seagulls brought out new home and away shirts for their second campaign in the Premier League. An adult shirt costs £50 and a youth shirt is £40. Click here to order one.

T-shirts


If you know someone who idolises a certain player, it's worth a look on the Cult Zeros website. It has pictures of a host of players to choose from to put on your t-shirt and you can then insert whatever text you like alongside the face of your chosen player.

T-shirts cost £13.99 and a hoodie is £22. Click here to have a look at the website.

Toffs.com has old-school Albion shirts from the 1960s and 1970s available priced between £39 and £42. Click here to view the Albion related shirts on offer.

There's also plenty of fashionable clothing to buy on the club website. Click here for men's t-shirts and here for women's clothing.

An offer of two t-shirts for £20 on the club website is here and two t-shirts for £18 here.

Sticker/card collections


Brighton & Hove Albion will again be in the Topps Premier League sticker album.

The book and stickers are out to buy from December 13 - a couple of packets of stickers will be a perfect cheap last-minute present.


Packets of ten stickers will cost £1 and the album will feature more than 300 stickers, with a double page spread and stats for every team.


If cards are more your thing, the Topps Premier League collection is out now, with packets of seven costing £1. They can be bought here although it might also be worth checking Amazon and eBay for any offers.


Books

If you're buying a book as a present, there's a few Albion-related ones to choose from but only a couple have come out this year.

Bloody Southerners by Spencer Vignes recently came out and looks back on Brian Clough's time as Albion boss.


Clough and assistant Peter Taylor stunned the football world when they took charge of Albion and the book features never-before-told stories from the players who played under Clough.

It costs £8.85 on Amazon here.

Brighton's official 2019 annual is available for £9 here.

For anyone who wants to look back on Albion's promotion-winning season from the Championship in 2016/17, there's a couple of books to choose from:

We're on Our Way: Seagulls photographer Paul Hazlewood captured pictures - on and off the pitch - of promotion in 'We're on Our Way'. It's available to buy here on the club website for £25.

Brighton Up: Sports journalist and lifelong Albion fan Nick Szczepanik details two seasons in the history of the club that will never be forgotten. The Seagulls fell agonisingly short of their Premier League target by just one goal in the 2015/16 season, before they regrouped and reached the top flight for the first time in 34 years in 2016/17.


Brighton boss Chris Hughton, chief executive Paul Barber and several players give their thoughts about the two seasons - the near miss and then the elation of the following campaign.


It costs £13.68 on Amazon here.

Micky Adams - My life in football: Adams will always be remembered fondly by Brighton fans for guiding the club to promotion from Division 3 in their second season playing at Withdean.


Adams shares plenty of stories in his autobiography and admits he possibly should have stayed with the Seagulls, rather than leave for the assistant manager's job at Leicester.


At Fulham, Adams worked with Mohamed Al Fayed and at Leicester had to steer the club through a sex scandal in La Manga.


A second spell in charge of Albion didn't go to plan but Adams is straight-talking and honest throughout the book.


It costs £14.28 from Amazon here.

Dick Knight - Mad Man: From the Gutter to the Stars, the Ad Man who saved Brighton: It's been out a few years but is still a must-read for any Albion fan.


It's described as: "The inside track on two decades at the club - from the struggles to take over the failing club to the seemingly endless battle for Falmer, not to mention 10 managers and numerous rollercoaster seasons - Mad Man is a fascinating, inspiring and often hilarious insight into this critical period in the history of the club, and also into what it's really like to be chairman of a modern football club."


It costs £20 on Amazon here.

Build a Bonfire: A classic book from 1997 looks back on how Brighton & Hove Albion was saved by its fans. Available on Kindle and hardcover on Amazon here.

Jimmy Case: My Autobiography. Former Albion player and manager Case released an autobiography in 2015 looking back on his time with Liverpool, Brighton, Bournemouth and more. It costs £8.99 on Amazon here.
