Women’s Green Bay Packers Klew Green Big Logo Ugly Sweater Dress: That’s quite the mouthful of a name, which is fitting because this is quite the article of clothing. Adorably attention-grabbing, vibrantly in-your-face and made with 100 percent acrylic knit material that is flattering but comfortable and necessarily warm, this Klew ugly sweater dress makes the Lady Packer Fan in your life the life of the party, whether tailgating in the Lambeau parking lot or on the couch at a friend’s house. Don’t just make a fashion statement; make a fashion exclamation about the team you love. It’s a top seller in the NFL Shop and retails for $74.00.

Green Bay Packers MVP Toaster: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And for some Wisconsinites, the Packers are the most important thing in their lives. For those people, the ProToast MVP Toaster is a must-have. It’s a pebble-grain-finished, football-shaped, two-slice toaster that is adorned with team logos and brands a Green Bay ‘G’ on every piece of bread. The toaster words on bread, waffles, English muffins and toaster pastries, but you could probably squash a brat bun in there, too.
