Tis the season for buying gifts - for others and, if we're being honest, ourselves - so let me give you a head start on some unique, blue-and-orange items for your holiday shopping. Note: You're never too old to make a Christmas list. Maybe some of these things will be on it.
(Note also that items appear here because I find them to be cool and not because anyone paid me to hawk them. I refuse to be bought, unless the price is right.) (The price is a churro.)

Boise State shades
Price: $20 | Buy these shades
These hand-polished, glossy, UVA beauties are perfect for Bronco football watching on a summer day. Or a fall day. Or a winter day. Or really, any day. Best of all, no one can see your eyes through the lenses, so you can stare at Jeremy Ioane's hair all you want with no one knowing.
Blue Collar art print
Price: $19 | Buy this art
Rare is the Boise State art that is not a picture of the stadium or a framed Idaho Statesman. Your living room needs some design help, and this Bronco print from OBNUG's Drew Roberts is just the fix. You stay classy, television wall.

Punter Awareness t-shirt
