Searching for the right Christmas gift for that Baylor Bear in your life? Here are some suggestions:
* How about a book? The Year of the Bear and Invincible (about the 2012 Lady Bears) are both beautiful products showcasing Baylor’s athletic success over the past year. Soldiers of the Wooden Cross explores the lives of BU veterans honored on memorial lampposts across campus, and Baylor University Press offers several other books related to Baylor history.
* Clothes? The Sailor Bear collection from the Baylor Bookstore is great for the retro look. These Baylor cowboy boots have been a hot seller this year, and a BU polo is nice for those casual Fridays at work.
* Something for your little future Bear? 1,2,3 Baylor is great for the littlest ones, and B is for Baylor targets a slightly older child in teaching the alphabet. This Bruiser Pillow Pet is a favorite of my son’s.
* For the RG3 fan? There’s no shortage of options. This Baylor t-shirt is pretty sweet, or you can go with a Redskins jersey or jersey t-shirt. He’s got “unbelievably believable” socks and a “no pressure, no diamonds” shirt. But my favorite? This bobblehead.
* Something from the Baylor family? Consider World Magazine’s Book of the Year (by Baylor prof Rodney Stark), the Hatfields & McCoys DVD set (from alum Kevin Reynolds), or the final CD from the David Crowder Band. Also, new Christmas music from Laura Cooksey, BM ’01, Brett and Emily Mills, BA ’98/BA ’99, Jeff McMahon, BA ’87, The Digital Age (former members of DCB) and the Robbie Seay Band.
And if none of this strikes your fancy? For a particularly meaningful gift, consider a donation to the President’s Scholarship Initiative in honor of your loved one. Or for even more Baylor gear and accessories, check out the Baylor Bookstore website or shop local t-shirt producers like Congress Clothing, Screen-Tex Graphics and Bearland Outfitters.
Sic ’em, Christmas shoppers!
