It's the holiday shopping season. And if you're going to sneak around and shop online at work, you should at least pick up some cool WVU merch for your loved ones. Or for yourself.

We’ve put together a nifty Mountaineer holiday shopping list for you in this installment of "The List." 


Be sure to check out our print edition for "The Goods," in which we highlight the latest, greatest products bearing the WVU brand. Most items can be found at  http://go.wvu.edu/spreadcheer


                                             Feet of Strength

Socks
 

Here's a pair of socks you won't lose. Woven graphics of the grizzled Mountaineer mascot grace these crew socks by Rock Em. Here's the problem: Why wear shoes to cover them up?

Snowday Rules: 1. Pour hot chocolate into your favorite  WVU mug. 2. Put on  reversible Flying WV logo puffer vest. 3. Curl up with  WVU blanket by Northwest and available at Bed Bath and Beyond. 4. Do nothing else. (Optional: Dogs cuddling on the floor.) 



                                        Musket's Big Adventure

Musket book
 
Here’s something for the kiddos –  a tale about the Mountaineer’s favorite furry little critter, Musket, and his journey to the Gold-and-Blue Mountains. Proceeds benefit WVU Medicine Children’s. It is the best children’s book ever produced in the history of mankind.  


(Disclaimer: The author of this article is also an author of "Musket’s Big Adventure." There’s no data proving it is the best children’s book ever produced in the history of mankind.)  



                                                  'Tis the Season

Ornament
 

Decorate the tree this year with a WVU stadium chair ornament. Or set it out as a perfect-sized chair for Mountaineer elves.  



                                         Pull Over for this Pullover

Pullover
 

No description needed for this  top selling women’s jacket at shopwvu.com. Just look at it and tell us you don’t want to put that thing on and go take a nap.  



                                All That Glitters is Gold-and-Blue

Phone
 

Bedazzle your smartphone with one of these Flying WV gold glitter cases. Now maybe you’ll stop dropping your phone so much.
