Lighter Shade of Garnet Presents: The Procrastinator's USC Holiday Gift Guide

Oh crap! It's already 9:45 on Christmas and you realized you totally forgot to get Uncle Phil something. You coolly excuse yourself from the screening of It's a Wonderful Life, lock the bathroom door, rappel down the side of your parent's house and peel out of the driveway, bound for your neighborhood 24/365 megastore. But what to buy?

Merry Christmas! The "Shopping Days Til Christmas" countdown ticker may be showing a goose-egg, but we at Garnet and Black Attack sympathize with the true procrastinators among you. After all, I was supposed to have this up yesterday! So for those of you out searching for a post-last-minute gift idea, fear not. I've compiled a list of crucial Carolina merch* to save you from a year's worth of passive aggression.

*Merch may not actually exist.
