Top Ten Gift Ideas Among the Most Popular at the University Bookstore
Gale Youmell, divisional merchandise manager at the Syracuse University Bookstore, shares some trending items among shoppers.
- Wear it with pride and style. A new addition to the bookstore’s jewelry collection, Alex and Ani’s expandable wire bangle bracelets in Russian silver or gold show off your school with a signature look.
- Who doesn’t love a polka dot? A collection of soft, comfy polka dot pajamas and other items are perfect for a snowy winter night.
- A fun sweatshirt, or is it a sweater? It’s the perfect remedy for the typical “ugly holiday sweater”—a sweatshirt with the look of a decked-out holiday knitted pattern.
- Stay warm. Bundle up your loved ones with fleece and knitted hats, scarves and mittens—all orange and many with Otto.
- Keep it cool. The ladies’ “inferno” three-quarter-length sleeve shirt represents SU with a trendy style.
- Here comes Santa. Sporting a Syracuse-branded hat and satchel, Kris Kringle knows how to bring it.
- A little flat, but never dull. These cute and sassy slip-ons are perfect for every day and any SU lady.
- A Syracuse staple. All-purpose and the go-to item for any SU fan, the crewneck sweatshirt is definitely the “in” style this year, Youmell says.
- All aboard. For the young and young at heart who want to add to their sets, this SU college team train will hook to compatible train sets.
- Interior design. Lighten up the mood in any room and prepare for game day with signage to show your spirit.
