As far as NFL gifts go, NFL football helmets are pretty much the ultimate. And while the collectors market for NFL helmets is huge, you don't have to be a collector to own one, just a serious fan.
What's so great about them?

That being said, full-size NFL helmets can be quite expensive. Just like with jerseys, the "authentic" models will cost you $200 & up, while a "replica" is usually less than half that amount. Unlike NFL jerseys however people usually don't wear the helmets, meaning there's very little reason that anyone with a limited disposable income would choose the authentic.
The main difference between the two lie in the material. Visually, the differences are minor. Replica helmets are made from ABS plastic & are a bit less shiny than the polycarbonate and steel (for the facemask) that goes into the authentic ones.
Besides the cost, space may also be a factor as full-size NFL football helmets can take up a lot of room if you do begin to start a collection.
So whether your a budding collector or simply shopping for NFL gifts you should consider mini football helmets. At roughly one-half the size and one-tenth the cost of full-size helmets, it is the practical - and sane - alternative.
