ICYMI: Gift ideas for Jaguar faithful

It’s that time of the year where everyone is racking their brains trying to figure out the perfect gift. But look no further! We partnered with the Barnes & Noble at IUPUI to provide some ideas for your current, past and future Jaguar, or even for yourself.

We’re sharing images and links to products available online, but we also encourage a visit to the Campus Center store. The physical location offers a wider variety of brands and selection. General manager Ana Cabezas said they have recently brought in more women’s fit and unisex apparel options and have eight new brands in store.

Different promotions are frequently being run online, including free shipping. Valid during any part of the year, staff and faculty receive a 10 percent discount in store with a CrimsonCard ID.

Here’s a collection of some of the top gift options in different categories:

Everyone

shirt, hat and sweater

Above are some unisex choices for those with a love and passion for IUPUI. The clean and classic tri-blend gray T-shirt with IUPUI in red block letters is a comfy addition to a wardrobe. A red adjustable hat that reads “IUPUI Jaguars” is a perfect accessory for that bad hair day. And one of the newest brands coming to the bookstore, Uscape, features this hooded sweatshirt with a colorful design of the Indianapolis skyline.

Men’s fit

a sweater, t-shirt and jacket

This vintage red sweatshirt from League is versatile for employees, students or alumni. Built for more active Jaguars, this black short-sleeve Under Armour T-shirt is ready for the gym. And crucial for those days that start too cold and become warm, this red Champion packable jacket provides needed flexibility.

Top sellers in store include red fleece sweatshirts, Columbia jackets and quarter zips for the professional, young or experienced.

Women’s fit

shirt, hoodie and pants

Uscape is featured again with a black short-sleeve T-shirt that features a line illustration of everyone’s favorite study spot, University Library. This red v-neck hooded sweatshirt is perfect for spirit days or hitting the classroom. Pair the sweatshirt with these gray joggers and you’re bound to be floating in some IUPUI-branded comfort.

For more options, the bookstore offers a wide range of selections to fit all styles and ages.

Stay warm

hat, scarf and mug

As the days get shorter and the temperatures drop, bundling up is important, whether you’re walking down Michigan Street or just getting from point A to B.

Keep your head and ears covered with a striped knit hat. Find Waldo or join the undefeated IUPUI rugby team with this white-and-red-striped winter scarf. Keep your coffee or tea hot on the go with this black 16-ounce stainless travel mug.

For other options, a winter-wear section inside the bookstore entrance has a collection of beanie hats, gloves and more. An extra-soft fleece IUPUI blanket — typically always a fast seller — is also available at the front of the store.

Other gifts

book, license plate holder, book

For some options other than new threads, here are a few gifts that would make any Jaguar happy.

For the creative types, “Color Your Campus — IUPUI” is a coloring book created by IUPUI students. The Herron School of Art and Design collectively created a coloring book with 44 distinct illustrations showcasing campus in a variety of artistic styles.

Take IUPUI pride on the road with this chrome-coated license plate frame. Easy to install, it’s a simple way show your love the university.
