Nittany Lion’s Den Holiday Gift Guide: Gift Ideas for the Chef

The holiday season is upon is and while we wait to learn where exactly Penn State will be playing this bowl season we figure many of us will be killing time by doing some gift shopping. So, what do you get that Penn State fan on your shopping list, other than a way to forget about the past month or so even if just for a little bit?

Between now and Christmas we are going to highlight some items to keep in mind

For starters, how about this toaster that brand each slice of toast with the Penn State logo? Is there a better way to start your day than by slathering some peanut butter, jelly, or butter on a slice of toast with Penn State’s logo on it? We call that “Breakfast with Honor.”

NCAA Penn State ProToast 2-slice Logo Toaster

Listed Amazon Price: $46.95

Available in other school logos, including Ohio State and Michigan if you prefer to start your morning by eating your competition instead.

While the logo-branding toaster may be among the most popular kitchen related Penn State items out there, every Penn State fan may want to make sure they are stocked up on blue and white kitchen necessities.

Here are some other Penn State items to check out to go along with the toaster.
