There is a certain pride in the moment a child commits to a College. The moment our son committed to Washington State University last month, we became instant WSU Cougar fans. I have a box that has been at the end of his bed for a few months now; a sort of college hope chest. That box has items I scoop up that I feel he will need when he moves into his dorm. I don't want to overload him, but there are essentials he needs and the most fun is finding his college themed decor. The Northwest has your favorite major league and college sports home decor and gifts.

Living near Seattle, we are very proud of our local teams from our Seattle Seahawks, Sounders and Mariners. Now that I have one in College I root for the team across the state now. In Washington you are either a UW Husky fan or a WSU Cougar fan. We may live near Seattle, but our hearts will be in Pullman starting this August.

So, now we need the gear for his dorm room and The Northwest sent him a Cougar rug, pillow and fleece blanket. Right away, we love the quality of each piece. These should last him his college years and beyond.

While stocking up on dorm supplies, don't forget team spirit. They will live and breath school colors, chants and mascot as they live on campus. The Northwest has everything form our above decor to bathroom decor, car accessories and throws.

Not a sports fan! I recently featured Star Wars themed products with the throw my youngest son has and it is as durable as our WSU items. The Northwest can easily be browsed through by sports, themes, characters and Holiday gifts. Visit to find your spirit decor!
