My Favorite Holiday Merchandise
When it comes to the holiday season, I know it's all about giving and being thankful. But, I also can't help but get excited when musicians, sports teams, theme parks and TV shows release special edition holiday gear. In fact, my coworkers know my Sixers ugly sweater is one of my most coveted possessions, as evidenced by the fact that I've worn it to work on several occasions.
To help get you in the holiday spirit, and perhaps inspire your next holiday-inspired apparel, I've rounded up some of my favorite merry-making looks.
1. Beyoncé's Merchandise
I've already waxed poetic about the amazingness that is Beyoncé's new merchandise line, so I won't continue to do so here. But, again, it's everything you want and more for the holiday season. (If only I could get her to sing at my holiday party.)
2. Disney's Merchandise
I might be 27 years old, but that doesn't mean I don't want everything from Disney's holiday collection, including this baby's first Christmas hat ornament.
3. Foo Fighters Snow Globe
Admittedly, this would be much better if it played "Learn to Fly" or "Everlong," but I still want it.
4. Star Trek Christmas Sweater
Receivers of this gift are sure to "gift long" and prosper according to the sweater's text, and we love it.
5. Daft Punk Ornaments
Why settle on boring ornaments like candy canes and snowflakes when you can don your tree with these Daft Punk helmets?
6. Harry Potter World Merchandise
While we can't go to the real Hogsmeade for a seasonal beverage, we can load up on Universal Studios' Harry Potter holiday goodies and pretend. Obviously, I'm choosing the Gryffindor stocking—I don't care what my mom says, I'm not a Slytherin.
7. Starbucks Millennial Pink Tumblers
Starbucks is always on the ball when it comes to holiday merchandise, and this season's sparkly millennial pink line is another home run.
8. Nike Holiday Sneakers
For those miles of caroling, these sneakers can't be beat in holiday spirit.
