10 Worst UVa Gifts Under $15 on Amazon


It’s the gift giving season! Time to buy cheap gifts for your whole family themed from your college. If you decide to take the high road and not student charge all their presents at the bookstore, steer clear of these duds for under $15 on Amazon. Or be a dick and buy them, you’re on a budget and it’s the self-absorbed thought that counts.

10.) NCAA Virginia Cavaliers Chrome Plate Frame:screen-shot-2016-11-28-at-10-52-07-pm

This would make an especially bad gift for first years who have no cars. Also, these things are just kind of pointless. C’mon, there are some with paw prints and others with tiny children’s hands. We approve of those more than Cav plate frames.

9.) Sweet Dreams, UVA:

8.) NCAA Team Color Retractable Click Pens-5 Pack:

7.) Nature’s Way Uva Ursi, 480 mg, 100 Capsule:

screen-shot-2016-11-28-at-10-34-55-pmPronounced ooh-vuh. It’s funny because this comes up when you search UVa. Still under $15 though! Moms love vitamins, right?

6.) Thirtystone VUVA-HA25 Stoneware Drink Coaster Set with Holder, University of Virginia:screen-shot-2016-11-28-at-10-39-30-pm

Coasters are far too fancy to be used at school. If your beer comes in a can and rhymes with smeesmone, your coffee table probably already has a million rings and only three legs. Also, Franzia bladders would require a much larger coaster than what Amazon is offering.

5.) University of Virginia High Heel Shoe Christmas Ornament:

4.) Collegiate Series 00539 UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA Solar-Powered Calculator:

screen-shot-2016-11-28-at-10-39-49-pmFor all the E-schoolers in your life. But wait, this doesn’t do anything they can’t do in their heads. This basic four function “calculator” is basically obsolete already, but hey, it’s got the school logo and colors. 

3.) Virginia Cavaliers Micro USB Cable with QuikClip – White:

screen-shot-2016-11-28-at-10-42-28-pmSchool pride is great and all, but this just takes it one step too far. People should just keep it simple and tell their cables apart from other people’s with colorful duct tape, or by coloring them with nail polish. This gift is the definition of extra.

2.) Virginia Cavaliers Pink Ignition Earbuds + Mic:

screen-shot-2016-11-28-at-10-41-57-pmIt’s the remix to… gift giving. But far more lame than R. Kelly are these pink ear buds. College gear geared toward girls is already a bit much since the school colors are for everyone, but these are just kind of dumb. And they look pretty cheap. Can you say tangle city?

1.) University of Virginia PS4 DualShock4 Controller Skin:

The holidays are coming sooner than you think, and while stocking up on UVa garb for the whole family is pretty easy, if it comes down to a Cavaliers USB cord then you might want to spring for something a little nicer. Think clearance sweaters at Kohl’s. 

Yeah, we all have D.A.D.S., just maybe not the kind you were thinking of:
