Gifting the Clemson Fanatic Husband with JCPenney

December 14, 2015


As you all know by now, my sweet, calm, rational husband has a bit of a passion.
Passion/obsession, tomato/to-mah-to, but either way, come late August, I watch my dependable, intelligent, hard-working husband turn into a screaming banshee decked out in orange and purple.

This season has been no different, with one tiny exception:

Clemson University is ranked the #1 football team in the entire country.

Go ahead and take a minute to let that sink in.

The last time Clemson won a National Title was in 1981 (I am only partially ashamed that I can rattle that off), so well before my darling husband made his way into this world. After many years of sitting in the stands for every single home game and praying for a win, we have finally found ourselves fans of one of the only undefeated teams in the nation. 

And it feels so good.

My husband is, if nothing else, an optimist when it comes to his Tigers.
This year, as we discussed our holiday budget and how we would financially plan for gift-giving, my husband waited patiently until we figured out our strategies for the baby, families, and friends and then quietly suggested that he could "donate" the funds we allotted to spend on each other to a fund to get us to the National Championship Game. I knew he had already secretly/not so secretly reserved hotel rooms in both play-off destinations and the championship city, but it seems my guy has his eye on the prize.

He wants nothing more than to go to a College Football National Championship Game and watch his Tigers take home the trophy. Who am I to squash his school spirit and Christmas wishes? So I agreed that I wouldn't purchase him any gifts this year and he would have nothing to open on Christmas morning.



But, while I agreed, Santa made no such promises.

And, with my Santa spirit in tow, off I went in search of the perfect Clemson Fan gift at the perfect (read: very reasonable) price point to surprise Justin with on Christmas morning.
  
After a quick search, I found myself browsing the JCPenney SportsFanShop and was surprised to see that they have a huge selection of Clemson fan gear available online. While Clemson has gained national attention this year, it is a smaller program representing the ACC and it can be tough to get your hands on attractive, high quality fan gear. Thankfully, JCPenney had exactly what I was looking for:



I am so excited to stash this little baby under the tree and for Justin to feel a teensy bit spoiled on Christmas morning. His new little bauble will look perfect while he's cheering on his Tigers (in the stadium!) at the National Championship game.

And, if I'm being honest, I have to admit that I took a peek at the Women's SportsFanShop and might just have to add this pair of flats to my "Game Day" wardrobe.

For less than $75, I think two of us may see "surprise" Clemson themed gifts under the tree this year. 

I blame Santa. 

If you have a crazy college (or pro!) sports fan in your life, you have to take a peek at the SportsFanShop, no matter how "small" your program is! JCPenney has an impressive amount of teams of all sizes covered from tee shirts to ballet flats, dog leashes and baby onesies. And no, I'm not going to admit how long I spent dawdling in the women's Fan Shop before remembering that I was shopping for my husband!
