Best Gift Ideas for Your Red Fox

Everyone loves a good bit of school spirit– and it doesn’t hurt when your mascot is one of the cutest and artsiest out there. I’m always on campus decked out in red fox gear (gotta show Frankie the love)! Here are 10 items to complete your foxy collection.


1. Mug

Perhaps the most versatile tool in your college arsenal is a mug. Whether it’s for your morning coffee pick-me-up, or to make a mug brownie recipe you found on Pinterest to satisfy your sweet tooth at 1am (No? Just me?), a good mug will see you through all your college adv. This red fox mug from Target is my personal go-to, and will look adorable sitting on your shelf.


2. Blanket


Picture this: It’s midnight. You’ve spent your day watching an entire season of Parks & Recreation. While you could give someone the breakdown on Ron Swanson’s pyramid of greatness, you have no idea where to start when it comes to your Economics test tomorrow. Let’s face it. You’re in for a long night. This ridiculously comfortable blanket from Wayfair is sure to soften the harsh reality of those late-night study sessions you always seem to be getting yourself into.


3. Laptop Sleeve

After taking my laptop out of my bag and dropping it in my first class ever in freshman year, I’ve learned the importance of a good laptop sleeve. When you’re typing away to #getthatdegree, it’s cute to know your instrument of success has a red fox home too. This laptop sleeve from Etsy is the perfect red fox college gift.


4. Water Bottle


In college, your water bottle is your best friend. It will see you through your highs and your lows, your A’s and your D’s, your Sunday recoveries and sleepless nights. An insulated water bottle like this one from Etsy will take care of all your hydration needs. Save the turtles, right?


5. Hat


I know. So 2012, right? This hat is basically asking me “What Does the Fox Say?” (a meme classic that will never truly leave our hearts… or our ears). However, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want my hands on this crocheted fox hat imediately. You’ll be sure to catch me sledding down the Campus Green in one of these babies as soon as the first snow day hits.


6. Pillow

Whether you want to use it to snuggle up at night or hide your face during horror movies with your housemates this Halloween, this fox pillow from Amazon is the perfect addition to your dorm or common room. It’s almost as cute as the legend and icon himself, Frankie the Fox! (Just kidding Fankie. No one could ever come close.)


7. Stuffed Fox


If you’re wondering whether I’ve saved the best for last, you’re right! Number six is a plush fox from our very own Marist Bookstore! I mean come on. I dare you to look at this little guy and not take him home.
