Penn State Nittany Lions Team Shop
Whether you're an incoming freshman or long-time alum, you're a Penn State Nittany Lions fan through and through. You don't mind showing your colors — navy and white — for all to see. There are more ways than you might think to honor your alma mater with clothing, gear, and decor from the team shop. And if you're looking for a gift, then you've come to the right place.
Dress like a true fan
Distinguish yourself from other college sports fans by wearing team apparel that shows everyone exactly who you're rooting for. Round out your wardrobe with jerseys, sweatshirts, hoodies, T-shirts, tank tops and even athletic clothing to motivate you during workouts. The NCAA Pro Shop has clothing for men, women and children in a wide range of sizes. The good news is that you can't ask for a more stylish graphic than the sleek Nittany Lions logo, whether it's tucked discreetly into the corner of a polo shirt or it covers the entire front of a T-shirt.
If you're the kind of low-key fan who would rather keep things subtle, then opt for Penn State socks, earrings or other accessories. Penn State pajamas are a great gift idea for a fan you know, and they make great outfits for holiday photo ops, too.
Game day gear
If you can snag tickets to a Nittany Lions game, bring seat cushions to make yourself more comfortable on stadium seats. If it's a chilly day, bring along a cozy fleece blanket, scarf, gloves and a stylish knit beanie in team colors. Penn State ball caps and sun hats protect you from UV rays at outdoor games no matter the time of year. Before you head out the door to the game, have some fun putting out a Nittany Lions pole flag or lawn flag at home to commemorate game day.
Tailgate Penn State-style
Whether you're tailgating at Beaver Stadium or elsewhere with friends, you can do it with as much team spirit as your heart desires. First, deck out your car or truck with logo-emblazoned floor mats, headrest covers, a license plate cover and a steering wheel sleeve that keeps the wheel grippable yet stylish. Arrange your tailgate space with Penn State folding camp chairs, comfy sphere chairs or fold-out stools. You might even find items like beach towels, a pop-up canopy and portable coolers to fit your Penn State theme.
Visitors don't even need to enter your home to know where your loyalties lie. Usher in guests with a Nittany Lions welcome mat. There are plenty of ways to incorporate your favorite team into your home decor with throw blankets and pillows tossed onto sofas and beds, too. If you want to dedicate an entire room to your favorite Big Ten team, why not consider your guest bathroom? Hang a shower curtain with matching hooks, and complete the look with themed towels and a shower mat. When Christmas comes around, adorn your tree with a Penn State Christmas ornament, or give one as a gift to a fellow fan.
Great gift ideas for new grads
Do you have a student who's just entering or leaving Penn State University? Give the new grad a gift that celebrates the school. A useful mug, tumbler or travel cup comes in handy, as does a leather wallet with an embossed logo or a patterned wall clock or watch that keeps them on time for classes. A high school grad wouldn't say no to a laptop backpack with an embroidered school logo. A Penn State diploma frame is another classy gift idea for a college graduate. Can't decide? Get several gifts and package them together to make a fun Penn State gift basket.
Don't forget your little Lions
The kids in your life can share in your passion for college sports by wearing youth and toddler-size clothing with the famous Nittany Lions logo. When Penn State alums are expecting a bundle of joy, the new little Lion might sport a onesie, cuddle a plush toy or snuggle in a baby blanket in Penn State pride. Older kids who may already be fans of the football team can deck out their bedrooms with Penn State bed sheet sets, comforters and window curtains. They can even play themed games like Monopoly or cornhole with a Penn State twist."
