How to prepare your home for a very Bear-y Christmas
If you or someone close to you are a Baylor Bear, you might have noticed that Christmas traditions lend themselves very well to the Baylor spirit. From green-and-gold trees with bear ornaments to BU Christmas sweaters and mugs, it certainly isn’t hard to combine your Christmas spirit with a bit of Baylor pride.
If you need some ideas as you begin to decorate and look for gifts this Christmas season, Baylor’s Pinterest account might give you the “pinspiration” you need. To get you started, here’s our guide to a very Bear-y Christmas:
* Baylor Ugly Christmas Sweaters — If you have an ugly Christmas sweater party coming up, look no further. The trend of ugly Christmas sweaters has developed a bit more in the past several years, so the Baylor Bookstore now puts out a new ugly Christmas t-shirt and sweatshirt every year — providing the perfect attire for your holiday party.
* 2017 Baylor Traditions Christmas ornaments — While we love hanging ornaments on our tree that tout our Baylor spirit, what we love even more is that it’s a gift that gives back. A portion of this year’s ornament proceeds will support mission trips to areas impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
* Homemade Bear Ornaments — If Christmas crafting is a hobby of yours, create a bear ornament for your tree! You can even make a tradition of gathering your friends and family and having everyone make their own bear. Or, make these Mama, Papa and Baby Bear ornaments to show your family’s Baylor pride on your tree!
* Green and Gold Christmas Décor — While green and red might be the more traditional Christmas colors, green and gold sure looks nice on (or under) the tree, too. From wrapping paper to ornaments to table settings, there are many opportunities to decorate your home with Baylor Christmas spirit!
* Bear Christmas cookies — Whether it’s decorating cookies with your family or savoring the sweet smell of cinnamon in your home, delicious treats are one of the best ways to commemorate the Christmas spirit.
* Christmas cards — Whether you’re sending out postcards or decorating your counters, cards are the perfect way to spread some Baylor Christmas cheer! Two of our favorites are these green-and-gold Christmas cards and this Christmas Bear print.
* Gifts for your Bear — Of course, giving gifts is one of our favorite parts of this cheery season. Baylor-themed t-shirts, hats and décor are always perfect gifts to put under the tree for your BU fans!
Still not enough? The Baylor Bookstore has countless gifts for your beloved Bear. Happy gifting and decorating, Baylor family!
Sic ’em, Bears!
