Stumped with what to get Grandma this year? Have a BYU fan on your list who already seems to have everything blue? Have more gifts to get than time to shop?
The BYU Gift Guide is here to help you find something for everyone on your list, at every price, all located on BYU campus (and many you can purchase online).
Have more ideas for BYU gift giving? Leave your suggestion in the comments.
1. Your interior decorator who loves a fresh pop of color:
Arrangements from Campus Floral will brighten a room, party or loved one’s day.
The shop also makes stunning holiday wreaths, banners, centerpieces and just about any arrangement you can dream up if you’re planning on playing host this year.
2. Your significant other who is always cheering on the team:
Pick up a Conference Saturday Men’s basketball mini pack, or single game tickets to Men's and Women's basketball and Men's volleyball, Gymnastics season tickets, or make life easy on yourself and give a BYU Tickets gift card.
3. Your theater buff nephew who knows the lyrics to every Broadway musical:
Give your thespian aficionado tickets to January’s production of Mary Poppins (hint: these tickets are going to go fast) or February's Macbeth, an abridged version of Shakespeare's masterpiece for young audiences. Add a little music and dance to the theater and you get Music Dance Theatre's Broadway Revue, a showcase of beloved Broadway show tunes and dance numbers.
4. Your mom, your wife, your grandmother, your aunt or your daughter:
Give the uplifting and inspiring gift of BYU Women's Conference (May 4–5, 2017). This two-day gathering brings more than 200 presenters to campus to share their perspectives and insights on a variety of topics including womanhood and sisterhood, gospel principles, marriage, family and practical and timely topics of interest and concern to women of all ages.
5. Your in-laws who don't need anything but who would really appreciate an experience:
Grab them tickets to see:
- Vivaldi’s masterpiece, The Four Seasons, performed by the Venice Baroque Orchestra and featuring acclaimed Scottish violinist Nicola Benedetti.
- Puppetry, mask, animation and live performance merge seamlessly in It’s Dark Outside, an epic western about an old man and his noble tent who go wandering together in the wild.
- Grammy-nominated banjoist superstar Noam Pikelny, hailed by the Chicago Tribune as the “pros’ top banjo picker.”
Bonus concerts: Share the talents of the musically gifted BYU students with tickets to one of the variety of concerts from BYU Vocal Point, Winter Choirfest (BYU Singers, BYU Concert Choir, BYU Men's Chorus and BYU Women's Chorus), BYU Philharmonic, BYU Jazz Ensemble and BYU Jazz Voices, BYU Symphonic Band and BYU Wind Symphony.
6. Your sister who cooks for the crew, but deserves a break from the kitchen this holiday:
Give a break from dinner prep and kitchen clean-up this year with catering from BYU Food-to-Go. Whether you are too busy to cook Christmas dinner or just need to bring a dessert to a New Year’s party, ordering from BYU Food-to-Go catering makes feeding the family easy this season. Yes, even the mint brownies (and many other desserts) are available for gift giving.
7. Your neighbor who knows and appreciates the difference between Monet and Manet:
Class up your gift giving this year with a visit to the Museum of Art Store, your source for truly unique stocking stuffers, international nativity sets, books, games and framed or unframed giclee prints of popular artwork such as Brian Kershisnik’s Nativity and Carl Bloch’s Christ Healing the Sick at the Pool of Bethesda. The Museum of Art Store is also the only place to find a handful of popular prints such as Frans Schwartz’s Agony in the Garden.
8. Your fun-loving family:
Give your family something to look forward to in 2017: book a vacation at Aspen Grove. Starting with the spectacular surroundings of Provo Canyon, an Aspen Grove Family Camp adds great facilities and programs run by a dedicated and enthusiastic staff that are sure to make this a family vacation to remember.
9. Your healthier self (or Treat Yo Self):
Get a jump start on your New Year’s resolutions and sign up for unlimited heart-pumping fitness classes through BYU’s Gym Empowered Program. One wristband ($48) provides all-you-can-sweat access to Zumba, cycling, yoga, Insanity, TurboKick, Pilates and the gyms. BYU Gym membership is available to employees and their spouses and students. (Note: 2017 GYM Empowered wristbands are available for purchase in January and can be picked up at the Richards Building information office.)
