Simple items like t-shirts, bookbags, and key chains are common items you can purchase from any HBCU and are the go-to items when starting to buy holiday gifts. However, being able to personalize, customize, and have limited HBCU items that are tailored just for your daughter or son, friend, or family member is what the meaning of gift giving relies on. Therefore, as many scurry to pick up the last few items, I am going to provide an ideal gift guide for HBCU alums, current students, and prospective students to help you purchase the most meaningful gift.
