I have been asked many times "what do you want for Christmas?" I never have the time to create a list, let alone think of something on the spot to give someone. I believe many men are the same way.

I preach that your wardrobe goals should be adding high quality pieces and I believe Christmas is a great time to do that. But there are many time saving or essential items you can add on a budget.


Many guys sweat and the Thompson tee is the perfect addition to help combat sweating. It is breathable and catches the sweat to wick it away, which will keep it off your dress shirts and suits.

I follow a lot of knowledgeable people and groups on Facebook and LinkedIn and the question of "best underwear brand" is asked a lot.

Saxx is the best.

​Stop buying the tighty whities or generic store brands. Saxx is breathable, moisture wicking and has the "ball pouch" to give your boys a cloud to rest on without sticking.

If you do not have enough watches to get a watch box quite yet, this will be your next best thing. I find my keys, wallet, change and pocket items end up on the edge of the counter. I hate the clutter, having a drawer valet keeps everything in one place.

Organizing your outfit the night before on a suit valet allows you to sleep in a little longer and wake up and go, without the stress of trying to figure out what to wear.

From the suit, dress shirt, pocket square and tie all the way to the cuff links, shoes and watch. This valet will hold everything until the morning.
