With the holiday season upon us, you may be wondering what clever gift you can give to University of Florida family or friends this year that won’t break the bank. If you’re lucky enough to call Florida home, you may have considered the gift of swimming with alligators as a one-of-a-kind treat. Unfortunately, the days of alligator pool parties are now a thing of the past. But that doesn’t mean you can’t still give loved ones something gator-related. Here are five fun gift ideas to show your Gator Pride.
This book, Albert’s Journey Through the Sunshine State, is a wonderful, educational gift that any little Gator fan will love. Kids reading along will enjoy a tour of Florida as told by the University of Florida mascot. Why not promote traveling, education, and your favorite school at once? They’ll grow up to be smart just like you.
If you’re looking to buy a gift that’s practical in its use and shows your spirit subtly, a Florida Gators leather wallet like this one might be a great solution. This trifold wallet has an embossed logo on the front with panels for credit cards and IDs on the inside, and plenty of room for cash and receipts. I’ve had one of these for about a year now and it’s still treating me well.
Our family has a tradition of buying a new Gator-themed Christmas ornament each year. It’s always fun to see what the latest addition to our collection is. If you’re looking to add some blue and orange to your holiday décor, University of Florida ornaments like the one above are an easy, quick fix and an inexpensive gift for all.
If someone on your list is moving into a new apartment or house, these matching Gator salt and pepper shakers make for a wonderful housewarming gift. What better way to spice up their kitchen than with some team spirit?
Finally, if you’re looking for a gift that’s just plain silly, look no further than this Florida fan garden gnome. Did I mention how perfect this is for white elephant gift exchanges?
