THE TB12 METHOD: HOW TO ACHIEVE A LIFETIME OF SUSTAINED PEAK PERFORMANCE
If you say you don’t like Tom Brady – you’re lying. This book would be fun to scroll through from time to time.
TRIGGER POINT GRID FOAM ROLLER
Does your better half like to workout/run/train? Foam rollers can help recovery and increase fleixbility while decreasing muscle soreness tremendously. This is a small purchase that can make a big impact.
FIRE TV STICK WITH ALEX VOICE REMOTE
With everyone “cord-cutting” and getting rid of their big cable bills, the Amazon Fire Stick is one of the best ways to stay in the action of sports, news, and entertainment.
BOSE SOUNDSPORT WIRELESS HEADPHONES
I take these Bose headphones everywhere and they perform the best under all conditions. Traveling, working out, or simply getting work done – these are my go-to wireless headphones.
JACK BLACK – THE GRAND TOUR COLLECTION
Jack Black is the best men’s skin care brand on the market. Whether your guy has or hasn’t used it before, this gift set has all the needed essentials.
10 FT ULTRA-STRONG iPHONE/iPAD CHARGING CABLE
I saw this iPhone charging cable and put it on my Christmas list. It’s 10 feet long, has a reinforced construction, and the knot on the lightning end is weighted so it will sit on your desk/nightstand when its not charging. Sweet!
HYDRO FLASK DOUBLE WALL VACUUM INSULATED STAINLESS STEEL LEAK PROOF WATER BOTTLE
Jacqui drinks 763 bottles of water each week. A few months ago, I decided to try and save the environment by purchasing a refillable HydroFlask. I can use this around the house, but I also take it with me when I am working out or traveling. I first bought it as a joke (kind of) but now I use it everyday.
TRIBE OF MENTORS: SHORT LIFE ADVICE FROM THE BEST IN THE WORLD
I’m a big fan of Tim Ferriss – lifestyle author, angel investor, and successful podcast host – His latest book “Tribe of Mentors” is on my list. Ferriss interviews some of the most highly achieved people in the world and asks all of them the same 11 questions. I have found Tim’s books to have a lot of applicable advice for everyone. This one should be no different.
I am having to consider “dad fashion” now and these UGG slippers fit the bill perfectly. They are super comfy and easily wearable. Walk down the driveway with your robe and these slippers on – Clark Griswold would be proud.
SHINOLA CHRONO LEATHER STRAP WATCH
I am a big watch guy, and the Shinola brand is one of the first “nice watches” I got that really made me appreciate a real timepiece. These are made in Detroit and are super reliable. They keep time impeccably, due to their quartz movement, and they are extremely durable. Surprise your guy with a Shinola watch, available in plenty of different colors.
PETER MILLAR QUILTED VEST
Its no secret that I love Peter Millar, and I also love layering up with a good vest during the fall/winter months. Combine the two – and you have a great piece that will stay in style for years to come. I like the “Perfect Navy” colorway the best.
JOHNSTON & MURPHY BOOT
Take that Peter Millar vest, pair it with this boot, and your guy will go from zero to hero. A suede Chelsea boot gives him instant fashion credibility.
JOHN VARVATOS COLOGNE
I have been using this cologne for about a year. I like it – Jacqui loves it. That is all that matters!
TUMI BACK PACK
If your better half travels for work – or uses the same backpack at the office that he used his senior year of college – time for an upgrade. Pro-tip…don’t be cheap. Tumi is expensive because it is extremely functional, lasts forever, and looks good. Add his initials for that little something special.
SMITH & WESSON KNIFE
A cool idea for a stocking stuffer is gifting a badass knife. Sounds weird, but I think it’s cool. Not expensive at all and actually useful. I use one around the house when needed (I try to limit myself to 1-2 days of actual hard labor per month).
NIKE FREE FLYKNIT
I’m a sucker for a fresh pair of Nike shoes – and the Free Flyknits hardly disappoint. Plenty of color options to choose from and you can work out in these or wear them with a casual look.
SPORTSWEAR TECH FLEECE HOODED SWEATSHIRT
Another match made in heaven for you. Take those Nike Free Flyknits and add this Nike Sportswear Tech Hoodie to make your guy happy. These hoodies are awesome – I have a few. Great to workout in, and after you wash it, a perfect look to run some errands in or hang with some of your buds!
KIEHL’S FACIAL FUEL EYE DE-PUFFER
I haven’t actually used this – but I have seen enough positive testimonials to think that maybe I should. After a long day at work, a cross-country flight, or a night of heavy drinking – use this underneath your eyes to wake up your face and take down unwanted swelling.
COLE HAAN ZEROGRAND WINGTIP OXFORD
I have been on the Cole Haan ZeroGrand bandwagon since 2012. This is the best shoe for everyday at the office or a night out on the town. Plenty of colors to choose from – and you can easily swap out different shoe lace colors to freshen up the look. They are unbelievably comfortable, trust me. This purchase is a no-brainer!
One last stocking stuffer that is sure to be a hit. I bought a Patagonia beanie last year in Telluride, CO and I swear to you I wear this thing all the time. It is so damn warm and cozy, I will throw it on when it is completely unnecessary to do so. Find a color or pattern that you like – the rest is easy.
