Citrus Bowl gift bags and swag

Northwestern and Auburn will get together for the Cure Bowl on New Year’s Day, and all participants will get a decent swag package to take home.

The Northwestern Wildcats put together an incredible turnaround season this fall will close their season up with the Auburn Tigers in the Citrus Bowl on New Year’s Day. There are a few fascinating elements to this matchup you can find on DraftKings Nation, but in this space, we’ll be taking a look at the gifts the participants of both teams will be receiving from the Citrus Bowl.

I’d be pretty satisfied with the haul these players are set to receive, which includes a $400 Amazon gift card along with a watch and a backpack. The lack of a special description to the watch and backpack is troubling, and makes me much less excited about them if I was a Citrus Bowl participant.

Obviously, the highlight of this package is the $400 Amazon gift card. Gift cards and cash are about the greatest gifts that can be sent around because you have an unlimited number of options of items to purchase for yourself. There’s no such thing as a bad gift when it involves currency.

And if you’re going to go the gift card route, Amazon is a solid way to go as it offers anything you could possibly need. If they don’t have it for purchase at Amazon, you probably don’t need it.
