We try to help Mississippi State players use their shopping spree to Belk wisely.

It’s Bowl season which means the players participating in the bowls will actually be allowed to receive free stuff for once. The Bulldogs will have a unique opportunity to select their gifts on a Belk Department Stores shopping spree according to Mike Bonner. My wife would be really jealous.

Being the fan of Mississippi State that I am, I want to insure the players get all they can during their shopping time. Last I checked, the gifts couldn’t total more than $550. They are also given a Fossil watch with their items from Belk, so let’s just assume they have around $450 to spend. So I perused through the Belk website and made some suggestions.

Ray Ban Original Aviator Sunglasses

It’s my understanding that football players love sunglasses. And there isn’t a better pair of sunglasses than Ray Bans. Looking good does come with a price though, and these glasses take out $200 of their budget. But there is still $250 for the players to spend.

Dune Topper Lace Up

If you’re going to have some nice looking shades, you better have some good looking kicks (do they still call them kicks?). And the Dune Topper Lace Up can look good with a pair of jeans or a pair of dress slacks. It’s the perfect choice. Once again, if you want to look good, you gotta spend some money, and these shoes will leave players with $130 to spend.

Paco Rabanne 1 Million Intense Eau de Toilette

What’s the point in looking good if you don’t smell good. Players should use part of their bowl gift shopping spree to get some cologne. Save some money by getting the small bottle for $64. This leaves them with $66 to spend.

Cufflinks Inc Darth Vader Tie Starfighter Blueprint Cufflinks

Cufflinks are such an underrated part of a man’s wardrobe. And with the new Star Wars movie coming out in less than two weeks, why not pick up these cufflinks for a night out in Charlotte? And at $65, it takes up almost the rest of the budget each player has for their spending spree.
