headphones luggage clothing christmas gift ideas by the skinny confidential

Aspen definitely put me in the holiday spirit.

Between the blanket of perfectly fluffy snow and blazing fires, Aspen is the epitome of Christmas time.

The trees were lined with twinkling lights and the holiday music was in full force.

Michael was playing the romance card when we were there so I thought it was only fitting to suggest some gifts for the men in your lives.

Whether it’s your husband, dad, cousin or friend here are some items to help you finish your holiday shopping.



If there’s one thing I’ve learned from Michael it’s how to pack and travel. For the jet-setter in your life, a quality piece of luggage is essential. We’ve been using Tumi and love the style and durability. We’ve been constantly on the go and this suitcase has been ideal. Michael even lugged it all around the streets of NYC and it held up without a problem.


You know what they say about a well-dressed man. Well I don’t know what they say but let’s just say Michael looks sharp in these button downs. Any man in your life will enjoy these shirts. Brothers, cousins, dads, uncles, you name it. The fabric is SO soft that you’ll probably want to borrow it from whoever you gift it to.


Michael loves to wear headphones all the time. Even when there’s nothing playing. Actually, especially when there’s nothing playing. This pair is his go-to since they are wireless and portable. Whether you’re  listening to music or enjoying a podcast, these headphones will get the job done. I prefer the Bose headphones since they wrap all the way around your head.


Keep the men in your life healthy this holiday season. Make extra green smoothies, GG french toast and lentil pasta. Also incorporate some supplements into their routine. Michael has been loving this mushroom supplement to support his immune system. Since we’re constantly on the go we don’t have time to be sick. Especially Michael. One sniffle and we hear about it for a week. Give the gift of health to your men and sanity to yourself so you don’t have to hear them complain.


SO this might be one the best tools we’ve discovered recently. Michael’s dad showed us this at Thanksgiving and many of you asked about it on Snapchat. This device let’s you enjoy a glass of wine without opening the whole bottle. It keeps your wine safe from oxidation so you can enjoy it longer. No more excuses for drinking that whole bottle. If you’re drinking this holiday season be sure to hydrate! My number one rule is always drink a glass of water for each drink. If you’re interested in how to stay tight and healthy this holiday check out my latest YouTube video.

What do the men in your life enjoy? Happy Monday everyone!

  1. I have a feeling I would buy those headphones and end up keeping them for myself haha. I always love searching smaller shops around Pearl Street and finding fun/unique gifts for Ben. It’s the best getting him something he doesn’t expect!
