‘Tis the season for bowl games and gift exchanges. And if your friends are real friends, they’re cheering for TCU and expecting you to get TCU-related gifts for them.

So instead of going the easy route, getting that same-o purple t-shirt or jersey or something like that, why not get them something they never even knew they needed?

Admit it, you need these, too.

1. TCU Hover Helmet

(Yeah, the video doesn’t have the TCU helmet. Boo.) Someone actually invented this. It’s a helmet that, according to Amazon, “levitates and spins in mid-air continually.” You can set it on your desk for the purpose of purely staring at it. Take. My. Money.

Where to get it: Amazon

2. Giant 2011 Rose Bowl Ticket

Winning the 2011 Rose Bowl was amazing, so of course it needs to be memorialized with a ginormous ticket hanging on the wall.

3. TCU Bamboo Headphones

Beats by Dre? Please. These headphones say “TCU” and are made with bamboo. You ask, “Why?” The answer is, “Because.”

4. TCU Dooney & Bourke Purse

Because all Frog fans need to be fabulous, there’s a whole series of TCU Dooney & Bourke purses. Check ‘em out in the link below.

7. TCU Bluetooth Selfie Remote

This remote connects to your phone via Bluetooth, so you can take selfies from up to 30 feet away. Not only does it get rid of that obnoxious selfie stick, but it also says “TCU” on it.

8. TCU Flash Drive

It’s. A. Horned. Frog. Flash Drive. Yes. You. Need. It.

9. TCU Bluetooth Speaker

Remember when “Amp It Up” was TCU’s football slogan (man, that was a great season...)? Now you can amp up Fall Out Boy’s “Centuries” (because you obviously can’t get enough of that song) on a TCU Bluetooth speaker.

Yes, you need a TCU totem pole in front of your house. Don’t even ask why.
