Irish Coffee: Top 10 last-minute Celtics gifts

Wake up with the Celtics and your daily dose of Irish Coffee ‘€¦

If you don’t actually play for the Celtics, then you probably can’t afford to buy Christmas presents like a replica of a 1986 NBA championship ring [1] or a Boston Celtics Pop-A-Shot machine [2] for the C’s fans in your life.

So here are the top 10 (fairly) affordable last-minute gift ideas for Celtics fans:

1. Two tickets [3] in sections 306, 327 or 329 to the Celtics vs. Spurs game at the Garden on Jan. 5 ($140)

2. A bottle opener [4] made from the old Boston Garden parquet ($78) and a Rajon Rondo [5] bottle koozie [6] ($7)


3. An autographed copy of “Red and Me” [7] by Bill Russell [8] ($125) or an autographed copy of a 1964 Sports Illustrated [9] featuring Tommy Heinsohn on the cover ($105)


4. A 1961 Hall of Fame postcard signed by Red Auerbach [10] ($100)

5. A Paul Pierce [11] Inglewood High jersey [12] ($45)

6. Boston Celtics [13] toaster [14] ($35)

7. A vintage Larry Bird [15] retirement night t-shirt from 1993 ($60)

8. Celtics bathrobe [16] ($42) and slippers [17] ($30)


9. The Lakers vs. Celtics and the NBA Playoffs [18] old school video game for Sega Genesis ($4) or the Shaq-Fu [19] video game for Super Nintendo ($4)


10. Boston Celtics snuggie [20] ($30)

Irish Coffee will be in and out over the next week and a half, so Merry Christmas to all and Happy Holidays! Continue to check Green Street for the latest on the C’s.
