I am looking for a unique Michigan gift for my brother. Any ideas? My budget is $100.
a terrible blight on our fine country
I may have acquired an 'OSU' tackling dummy from the practice facility. It just happens to be for sale, $100. It's great for taking your frustrations out on something.
Stop stealing stuff you klepto.
My budget is $100.
Well I guess that rules out the M themed kidney transplant.
with 80 bucks in it.
I love my M money clip
Not sure how unique it is, but for my birthday my aunt got me "University of Michigan Football Vault - The History of the Wolverines"
It is a "coffee table book" but a great gift (not sure how much).
I got this from my girlfriend for my birthday, she made a gift certificate for $80 for a future michigan football game.....GREAT GIFT!
Steal a beer menu from Ashley's.
Michigan garden trolls - totally cool.
My wife bought a Michigan onesie to tell me she was pregnant...that was cool.
Your comment prompted me to do a search and find out what a "onesie" is.
Two things I'm walking away with:
1) It's not what I was hoping for
2) I'm glad I hadn't already learned what it was
original print Michigan Daily newspapers from January 7th, 1998. This was the first day of print after the Rose Bowl game against Washington State. I made a point to grab a stack of them and have had them stored away for the past 12 years.
I might be convinced to give one up if interested. Get a poster frame and it would make a pretty good gift.
I have a few original print copies from the Ann Arbor News and the Detroit News. My wife took one a couple years ago and had it framed. I love it and it sits in my office now!
in buying 1 or 2 if you are interested in selling.
I have that same print hanging on my wall. It's right next to a print of the cover of the Daily from Nov 24, 1997 after Mich beat OSU. The headline is 'The Victors' and the picture is Eric Mayes getting carried off the field with a rose in front of him. It's sick, but the Jan 7th one is better.
Edit: here's the link
I must have one. How do we get to work on me getting one of them?
Can you still buy bricks at the stadium? That would be a great one. Get your brother's name on the ground there.
Also, you can buy a poster from the Detroit Free Press of the front page on Jan 2, 1998. It says "Hail Yes!" with a picture of Charles Woodson pointing at the sky.
Don't use any picture from the free press.
are f*ck lions going for these days?
Wow, you know it's been a bad sports year when even our fans in ads looked pissed about the game they're watching.
My brother in law bought me that for Christmas. Seriously. I won't wear it but my wife loves it on account of the warmness.
what is wrong with him?
Bought this for my brother (who is currently a senior) for his b-day last fall. Think it is a lot of fun as a gag to have around...
Coupled it with the "Those Who Stay Will Be Champions" banner.
How about a jersey of the last heisman winner from Michigan and the only defensive player to win the heisman trophy.

My Mom got this for me for Christmas last year and I loved it.
made me a Michigan poker table which involved quite a bit of labor, I don't know how much it cost though. Also she got a M-flag and got her friend the punter to take it in and get signed by Hart, Long, Avant and like 25 other players from the 2005 team.
Starting with the "Those Who Stay..." banner.
A set of pilsner / other glasses is always a fun thing to have around.
You can get just about anything with a block M stamped on it, so I'd look for the combo of Michigan + something might actually need.
Charles Woodson signed football that he can take a picture with for $100.
You could get him a pair of tickets to the UConn game.
Better yet, you could get him one ticket and keep the other one for yourself.
Isn't there MSU or OSU printed toilet paper on the internet somewhere? That seems like a good start.
I think you should donate the $100 to the football program in your brother's name. I mean at least that could help translate to wins...which at this point would be pretty unique.
The most unique Michigan item I have is a bellybutton ring, but something tells me that's not applicable.
I would suggest some Adam Jacobs photography. He has an awesome photo of B. Graham in the student section corner (under Sporting, then Action), and you can get it and have it framed for $60.
Unique.. ummm I bet shoelace would give you a dread for $100 spot.
Was a chest of Johhny Walker pints, labels of blue, gold, black, and red wrapped in a Michigan snuggie (man those things are soft). I think it retails for about $100.
