What to Buy (Your Longhorn) Bae
Ah, Valentine's Day. Love it or hate it, it's here, and it's time to figure out what to do for that special someone in your life. This decision can be crucial. What if you've only been on a few dates? Will it be creepy if you get them something, or jerk-ish if you don't? When in doubt, take a breath, get out your phone, and hint at what you want in the most obvious way possible.
Never fear, the Co-op is here with gift ideas every Longhorn would love. Pair any of these with a thoughtful note and a sweet date, and you just killed the Valentine's Day game.
Gifts for Him:
A nice tie
So he has something to wear when he meets your parents *cue screaming*.
A (subtly) Texan belt
Because sagging isn't cool anymore (but it never really was).
A comfy sweatshirt
Let's be real: This is really so you can
steal borrow it.
A cool phone case
So you don't scream internally every time he drops his phone.
Gifts for her:
Jewelry is always a safe bet - throw Texas on it and she's guaranteeed to love it.
Girls love being cozy. It's just a fact.
A statement necklace
Again, jewelry is always a win. This piece is perfect for the girl who loves dressing up.
A comfy sweater
Sweaters always make a great gift because you don't have to guess perfectly on size. Pro tip: When in doubt, buy a size up. Big sweaters are even cozier.
Gifts for all:
No explanation needed.
To set the ~mood~.
