HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE

If you’re anything like me, you are looking at the calendar and just now realizing there are only 16 shopping days left for Christmas. On top of that, you’ve got a huge workload to finish before the end of the year leaving you little to no time to actually go out and do your shopping. So, in the little bit of free time I have, I’ve been compiling these holiday gift guides full of great gifts for your lady, kids and even a list to give to your wife in case you are one of those “impossible” to shop for guys. Good news is that all of the products listed out below can be ordered online and I am 98% sure all of them will arrive before Christmas, if you get on it soon. Here’s to a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

This new label for pops and tots recently caught my eye on Instagram. At first it was their simple fleece crewneck sweatshirts that simply read “POP” or “TOT” in what resembles the classic collegiate font famously worn by John Balushi in Animal House. Somehow, Tosan pulls it off in a way that just works. I admit that I would probably be pretty hesitant to even consider purchasing a companion outfit for my son and self, even though tons of moms out there sport theirs. But this set is one I would (and will as soon as Forrest is big enough) wear with pride. Plus, I just love what this brand stands for, “Curated goods for the adventure of fatherhood”.

The Tot crewneck ($30) sizes start at 2T and go up to 6T and comes in navy. Both pop and tot versions are super soft, eco-friendly and made in the USA. The Pop crewneck ($65), which comes  in your standard sizes, comes in a heathered navy. Good call on their part for not making them both the same color! Tosan also offers a pop and tot set that is nicely priced at just $75. So, my advice is if you want them, grab them now, before they are all gone!

It will be great watching this brand grow and seeing what they do. They’ve already expanded into some other great and fun products like their Tosan X Salemtown child and adult sized skateboards ($300 for both. $160/$170 individually). And their convertible adventure pack ($250) looks just incredible. It’s looks are amazing and is full of function. Keep an eye out for other goods like carriers, bags, swaddles coming this spring.
