Finally, after hours and hours spent filling out applications and writing college essays, and then enduring the interminable waiting game, college acceptance (and rejection) letters are beginning to trickle in. Our advice is simple — toss the rejection letters. And celebrate every acceptance whether it is your first choice school or your safety school! Celebrate your achievements and the schools who appreciate you! Once you narrow your choices down and ultimately make the final decision as to which school will be the lucky school to include you in their class of 2020, begin wearing your new school colors. Splurge on college gear. Buy college t-shirts and sweatshirts, hats and caps, college pennants, bedding, watches and jewelry, and anything and everything else to proclaim your new college spirit.

Seattle Seahawks Themed Wedding (or Better Yet, Rehearsal Dinner)
It is Joe & Adam's favorite time of year – football season! And as they, or more likely their fiancees, are finishing up plans for their upcoming nuptials, it is not too late to add a few personal touches to the festivities. There is absolutely no reason why you cannot say I DO in fan style, so long as you own it! Personally, we would make the rehearsal dinner an all Seahawks (or your favorite team) kind of night and then have the groom and all the groomsmen wear Seahawks bow ties with their wedding tuxedos (Be sure to check out Men's Formal Wedding Attire >> To Rent or To Own? The best argument for investing in your own tuxedo!) Continue Reading →
Are you still searching for a fun, elegant & memorable groomsmen gift? Think Personalized Flask. Yes, as you can quickly see flasks come in all shapes, sizes and materials. The classic flask is either metal or metal & leather but today you can also find collapsible canvas flasks, vinyl wrapped flasks, and glass flasks. Their designs range from simple to well, not so simple such as a flask that looks like a retro cell phone or one that sports the insignia of your favorite NFL team or even a horn-shaped flask.
So where to begin? Flasks are hot and they are everywhere from the traditional wedding favor shops to interesting handmade flask designs on Etsy to a sterling silver flask from Tiffany & Co. Most quality flasks are priced from $25.00 – $35.00 but sterling silver and specialty genuine leather can cost you a pretty penny.
Like each bride, each groom has his own unique style (even if he does not realize it ). So if we were choosing, we would narrow our choices to the look most fitting the groom even if it doesn't 100% go with the wedding theme. A groomsmen gift is all about the guy relationship so if you are all sports buddies go for the sporty flasks. If you are a fun loving goofy bunch, the mustache flasks might be just right, the camouflage flask might appeal a group of guys who go hunting together, or the traditional Wall Street guy might want to stick with a classic black or brown leather style

An OMG Big Brother & Big Sister Baby Shower Gift
We just found car seat covers too!
Just when when we think there are no more products to put a logo on we are giddy with surprise. These team spirit booster seats make for an OMG big brother & big sister baby shower gift. How perfect is this for a couples shower where so many of the friends invited are college buddies and gal pals of the dad and mom-to-be. Yes, we admit we are jumping the gun because these team spirit booster seats are not meant to replace your car seat. These are the seats your child graduates into once they are at least 40 pounds and 4 years of age.
It is the gizmo you keep your child in until he or she is big enough to fit in a seat belt properly. Obviously, only consider this gift if the parents-to-be have the room to store it or if they have an older child who will soon be passing along his or her car seat to the new baby and graduating into a booster seat. Clearly we are true believers that indoctrination into the Trojan Nation, or whatever your favorite college team, works best when started early!
These booster seats would also make great birthday presents and holiday gifts for children making the transition into the “big kid” booster seat, especially if they are whining that they are old enough and do not need a booster seat. Please, please, do not cave into the whine – according to the CDC (Center for Disease Control & Prevention)
“Booster seat use reduces the risk for serious injury by 45% for children aged 4–8 years when compared with seat belt use alone!”
