Looking for the perfect gift for your favorite Baylor Bear? We’re here to help; here are some suggestions:
* How about a book? The History of Baylor Sports is a beautiful, 350-page, coffee table book covering more than a century’s worth of Baylor athletics; make sure you use the discount code at Baylor Press to get 33% off. Fans of biographies are in luck, as this year’s releases included well-reviewed books on former Texas Governor Ann Richards, BA ’54, football coach Art Briles, and NFL star Robert Griffin III (both here and here). And for your Little Bear, there’s Star, Circle, Baylor, from the creators of 1,2,3 Baylor.
* Music? The Digital Age, a group of Baylor alums that formerly made up The David Crowder*Band, released their first full length album earlier this year. Baylor student Holly Tucker (who you might remember from The Voice finals) and alum Joseph Fuller, MM ’04, each have new Christmas releases out.
* Sports fan? Get Fiesta Bowl tickets for your loved one, or choose from a wide variety of Baylor football Big 12 champs and Fiesta Bowl merchandise. You could get a replica NFL jersey for one of the many Bears in the NFL — stars like RG3, Josh Gordon, Phil Taylor, Terrance Williams and Kendall Wright. And then there’s the lasting gift that also supports Baylor football — a Baylor Stadium Brick.
* Movie buff? Earlier this year, we ran down a long list of available DVDs and Blu Rays of films and TV series in which Baylor alumni played prominent roles either in front of or behind the camera, including new releases like Chicago Fire and the final season of The Office.
And if you want a particularly meaningful gift? Consider giving to Baylor — The President’s Scholarship Initiative, the RG3 Quarterback Scholarship, or to any other area of the university — in honor (or memory) of your loved one.
Sic ’em, Christmas gift-givers!
