What are Mountain West players getting as bowl gifts?

The best part of bowl season for players are the gifts that they can get this time of year.

Bowl season is not just a time for extra practices, one more shot at a game but for the players they get some compensation for a great an average season. Most bowl games are getting a gift suite which gives players a certain amount of money to buy items at a store.

The total amount of gifts can not be more than $550. The gift suite amount is different but it can be inferred that the lower the actual gifts means the gift suite is a lot higher.

As for gifts, nothing says Hawaii like the bowl handing out a Hawaii-themed shirt and a beach towel. The players at the Idaho Bowl will find their gifts more practical with all of the winter gear. The Poinsettia Bowl is my choice for best gift because of the Best Buy gift card and Fossil watch.
