It's Game Day, Y'all!

It's Game Day, Y'all!

Cajuns, Tigers, and Saints–-oh my!

With so many teams to celebrate in South Louisiana, someone is always rooting for one or another. It might surprise you, but game day gifts are a huge deal, because down here, college football IS a huge deal! 

College students must represent their team, especially if they plan to attend football games. Friends hosting game day watch parties need host/hostess gifts. Anyone going to a game needs a clear bag, a wallet, and sunglasses–the list could go on forever! Let’s not forget the new outfits, too.

We’ve found some really unique ways to express team pride and wanted to share these with you. The new school year has just begun and football games have been scheduled–the time is now!

What are you adding to your game-day outfit this year?


1. Pirani Insulated Tumbler - This is THE cup for tailgating, sorority and fraternity events, and gameday watch parties! Each of the ridges in the cup marks certain ounces for measuring cocktails. The lid is air-tight and designed not to leak, even when knocked over, and it’s insulated so it won’t sweat. The best part is that they are dishwasher-safe! They won’t ruin and wash easily. You can also stack the cups and lids in your cabinets so your whole family can have one in your team colors.

2. Fan Gear Headband - Whether you’re ready for football, baseball, or basketball, these headbands are so fun! Get your glitz on and enhance any outfit with these bedazzled beauties. Even if your team’s colors aren’t an option, black goes with everything!

3. Game Day Denim Jacket - How unique is this denim jacket?! It’s the cutest way to show excitement for Saturday night. The patches come in 6 different colors and in sizes from Small to XXLarge. The customizations are super fun for Game Day! Denim jackets are also versatile and can go with whatever outfit you put on.

4. Purple Tiger Peplum Top - The poofy sleeves on this Queen of Sparkles top are adorable! And all 4 tigers (there are 2 on the back!) are a little different from each other. You can tell this top was made thoughtfully, even down to the lavender pearls along the seams. This blouse looks good on everyone!

5. Groovy Game Day Tee - Okay, even someone not going to the game would wear this! With all of the cute colors and groovy font, its stylish design really makes this tee fun and perfect for anyone and any age, no matter how game-day-crazy you are. The colors are pretty neutral, too, so it can be paired with any bottoms and shoes!

Saints game day earrings6. Beaded Saints Fleur-de-lis Earrings - Beaded earrings are all the rage: they make a BIG statement and they’re at a great price point! They may not look like it, but they are also lightweight, so perfect for a long day outside.

7. Game Day Clear Crossbody Bag - The Darling Effect has a ton of groovy gameday accessories, but this clear bag with a colorful flower strap is just precious! When you want to show team spirit, but aren’t crazy about sports, this is a cute way to support your school. The bag is a great size and perfect for college stadiums, and the embroidered strap is adjustable for comfort. If you were waiting to see what other options there are for clear bags, you’ve found the one!

8. Game Day Nail Polish Set - Even if this set doesn’t have your team colors, the names of each shade are so precious! The colors are fun, too. It comes with a set of 5 flat colors and one gold glitter. It would be a great gift for a high school or college student, maybe sorority bigs and littles.

9. Metallic Short Sleeve Sweater - For a great price, this sweater really delivers! “Game Day” is written with a metallic gold tassel that is sparkly and fun. Sweaters aren’t worn too often in a Louisiana football season, but this short sleeve option is great, especially to bring into the Superdome! The puffy sleeves really put the final touch on a really cute addition to your fall wardrobe.

10. Football Bean Bag Toss Set - Here is the answer to the downtime before the game at your next tailgating event: a personalized Corn Hole set with a gridiron design painted across each board. It would make a beautiful gift for your tailgating buddy, or just to have for your family to enjoy in the backyard.


We always create a special display in our store to represent our local teams, like our LSU Tigers and New Orleans Saints. It’s a great way to support and engage with our community!

Sports are a big deal here, so a lot of gifts (for both men and women) are themed around the next big game. Our customers even buy game day accessories as Christmas gifts, after the season is already over.

New college students, graduating college or high school seniors, teachers, athletes, and parents of athletes are always fair game for team spirit gifts. 

A new school year is the perfect time to start stocking up on all your team colors! We have some fun sweaters, t-shirts, bags, purse straps, and earrings to choose from. 

We can ship all over the country, and we also offer local delivery. Tag us on Instagram if you’re sporting any of our Game Day looks this season!
