Thanksgiving has passed, December has yet to arrive and Mariah Carey’s greatest holiday hits are ring-ting-a-ting-a-ling all over the radio. This can only mean one thing: Christmas.
When it comes to gifts, I usually have a Regina George-esque attitude (“I don’t send them, I just get them”). But Christmas is the exception, when giving gifts brings warmth to my heart and makes a hole in my wallet.
Thinking about buying some presents for your friends and family this holiday season? Are you car-less, or at least not willing to make the trek to anything past Wilson Plaza?
Luckily, your life just got easier. Here’s a gift guide to our very own UCLA Store, so you can fret a little less about what to get for that one distant cousin that always happens to buy you something, but you never get them anything and you always feel really guilty, and so you try shopping for them but, like, how are you supposed to know what they like? Anyways.
UCLA Bruins No. 1 basketball jersey (white)
This one goes out to the athletic older brother who loves reminding the world that he works out and has big arms. Cheers to you.
UCLA women’s double arch V-neck tee – blue
Simple, yet cute – an easy gift for a girlfriend, sister, friend. Plus, it’s performance fabric, so it’s perfect for working out in.
UCLA arch mom crewneck sweatshirt – blue
Especially great for those mothers who love to have hot chocolate and sit by the fireplace on those cold winter nights.
UCLA dad license frame
Perfect for a father who loves to rep the amazing school his child goes to.
FOR THE SIGNIFICANT OTHER:
UCLA musical Bruin plush
Everyone is a sucker for teddy bears. Are you in a long distance relationship? All the more relevant. Now your significant other can cuddle up with a little somethin’ that reminds them of you.
FOR THE MOST-SPIRITED:
UCLA block tube socks – white
Socks are a staple Christmas gift, so why not change it up and slap on some UCLA spirit?
FOR THE DOG:

We can’t forget the puppy! The cutest member of the family needs a present as well.

FOR THE COFFEE-LOVER:
UCLA Enzo mug
Let’s face it. We always thought coffee was for old people, but, now in college, I am a hot mess without my daily dose of caffeine.
FOR THE TECHIE:

A laptop contains all of life’s important information – why not keep it safe and represent UCLA at the same time?
