Knicks Cufflinks $60 (many teams available!)
(all available in lulustore)

Speaking of good basics, a good friend of mine told me that every year after New Years, he throws all of his socks and underwear out and starts fresh. It’s a great idea if you think about the fact that you wear socks & underwear every single day! A nice way of telling him to replace his underwear and socks would be to buy him new ones!

MACK WALDEN UNDERWEAR

All I am going to say is one thing:  This isn’t just underwear.  Mack Weldon’s underwear took over 10,000 hours to design. And that’s not all. They lay out the fabric for 18 hours before cutting into it. That means it will fit – and shrinking and breathing all happens naturally.  Plus it’s naturally moisture wicking and adept at controlling odors. The end result? The most comfortable pair of underwear he has ever worn. Ever. $24 for one pair, yes, but he will thank you! Think about what we spend on bras!
Mark Weldon Briefs – $24
Mark Weldon Trunks – $22

 

BOMBAS SOCKS

Bose Wireless Earbuds – $199.00

UMORO PROTEIN BOTTLE

Protein Shaker Bottle and Water Bottle in one! For anybody that loves protein shakes and is always on the run, this is for them. It stores your supplement for you, for your after work workout and it does not leak!

This machine is like having your private masseuse! Works on neck, lower back, legs and even feet! I read about this and ran out to buy it. It WORKS!
Cordless Shiatsu Massager – $99.95

MESH NETWORKING

With all the Mesh Networking (aka as full house wifi) systems on the market, how do you know which one to choose? Well, I did a ton of research between Luma, Eero, Orbi and now Google onHub. Basically it came down to Eero and Google. The only negative with Google onHub is that it tracks certain data “to improve services.” Truthfully, I think we are all being tracked but that little line is in their privacy policy – fyi.
Eero Home Networking System – $461.83
Google onHub – $460.00

Nomad Plus Charger

Everyone needs a backup battery solution! The NomadPlus fits perfectly with your existing Apple® wall plug, allowing you to charge up your phone with a cable as normal.

APPLE WATCH STAND

This is the ideal stand for the Apple Watch. It’s designed to give your watch an elevated charging experience, whether at your desk or by your bedside. Love how minimal yet functional it is!
Apple Watch Stand $40 (lulustore)

Charging Cables

No matter what you buy this holiday season, these charging cables are a NECESSITY! The Universal cable comes with integrated multi-tip charging options to charge any mobile device.  Attached are two tips, an MFi Certified Lightning tip and a USB Type C tip enabling you to charge all iPhone, Android and other USB powered devices. The battery cable combines a durable, nylon wrapped, MFi Certified Lightning Cable with a high capacity 2350 mAh portable battery.  The Battery Cable knows your priorities: it charges your phone first before charging its internal battery. A sleek charge status light indicates its state of charge and remaining power.

They both have braided ballistic nylon for abrasion and tear resistance, reinforced RF shielding for fast data sync, 2x thick protective PVC jacket, extra thick wire gauge and a robust kevlar core. They’ve got it all!  Their durable cables were engineered to inherit the latest charging and material technology. And after all that, they made them tangle-resistant, too.

Battery Cable $39
(both available in lulustore)

LUCENT HEATED GLOVES

I LOVE the heated glove concept, as nothing ruins great skiing more than cold fingers and toes. Truth is many heated gloves don’t work well, with short battery life and uneven warmth distribution. The latest pair comes from Outdoor Research, a very high-regarded supplier of garments and gear for serious climbers, alpinists and explorers. The Lucent glove ALTI Heat system keeps your hands warm up to 8 hours on the lowest setting, and on top of that, these insulated heavy duty gloves would keep you warm even without the added heat! They are also uni-sex!
Lucent Heated Gloves – $350
