As a parent, we do everything possible to get our kids almost anything they want for Christmas. We spend our hard earned money on things for our kids because a lot of us didn’t have them. Honestly, seeing the smiles and happiness on our kids is what drives us to do what we do. While spoiling our kids, we tend to go without things that we wouldn’t mind having. With that said, it doesn’t mean that there aren’t a lot of things we wouldn’t love to have. The year 2020 was one definitely for the books, but these quarantine times were good to spend quality time with family. Being home gave me plenty of time to browse to find or try some amazing stuff. Below are some great things you will see included in my 2020 Holiday Gift Guide for Men.
New iPhone 12 Pro or Pro Max
I’m still with the iPhone 8Plus, so I haven’t upgraded in a very long time. What’s even crazier is that my wife is still with the iPhone 8Plus also. My wife used to get the newest phones every year, but that has changed over the years. In my attempt to spoil her, the new iPhone is what I wanted to get for her birthday. She declined, but that doesn’t mean this phone isn’t for me. After going to the local Apple Store and viewing it, this is something I see myself having. The design is awesome and being a blogger, the camera caught my attention also. The iPhone 12 Pro Max is a great phone and one I’d love to have.
One of my new neighbors let me play around with his one day it was stuck in my tree. This made me think back when I was a kid and had a flying helicopter. The drone is much more advanced than those helicopters. Seeing this would be my first drone, there are several things to look into before purchasing one.
Beats Wireless Headphones
I’m as old-school as you can get when it comes to technology. I’ve had two pair of Apple Air Pods and those are just not for me. At the gym, going grocery shopping or just at home listening to music, those things fall out all the time. Growing up, we had those big earphones that look like earmuffs. With the Beats Wireless Headphone, we get the best of both worlds. We have the old-school feel to the headphones and they’re wireless also.
Microsoft Surface Laptop 3
My computer is about 4 years old now and it is starting to get a little slower. My current one is an HP and trusts me, they are good but I’m going in a different direction. The Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 is the one I want to have. It is slim and stylish, available in 13.5” and 15” touchscreens, rich color options,¹ and two durable finishes. Make a powerful statement and get improved speed, performance, and all-day battery life.
Stuff to Wear
Trae Young MLK Edition Jersey
Basketball season is around the corner. As a matter of fact, preseason kicks off on Friday as they host the Orlando Magic. The Atlanta Hawks picked up some great players through free agency. We are hoping they make some noise in the East this season. Atlanta released a lot of new uniforms and my favorite is the MLK Edition of their jersey. Of course, I’d want the Trae Young one and you can throw in the hat also.
Kobe Bryant Jersey
It’s still hard to believe that Kobe Bryant was taken away from us all the way back in January. Kobe was one of the greatest to ever do it. The way he passed was so tragic and seeing his daughter, Gigi was with him was even crazier. After retirement, Kobe had his hands in a lot of things and that included the growth of women’s basketball. With all of that, it’s sad I’ve never owned a Kobe jersey, but I definitely want one now.
Bristol Fedora Hat
I’m a big fan of hats and caps, but I’ve never owned one for when I like to dress up. The Bristol Fedora Hats are the ones I’d definitely think would make a great gift. This is not an ordinary fedora. Scala’s winter season crushable, water-repellent wool felt is as utilitarian as it is fashionable. The pinched shape is the classic of all classics, and you’ll find yourself tipping your brim regularly before long. Whether you’re going out on a date with your wife or just with casual wear, this is the perfect hat.
Black, Red & White Jordan 1s
Throughout all these years, I’ve never cared about wearing Jordan’s or even call myself a sneaker head. The Jordan Brand has been going strong for well over 30 years now. All the shoes Michael Jordan has released over the years, the 1s are still my favorite. Since I’m starting to treat myself more with my oldest two kids are grown and my youngest about to turn 16 next year. I’d definitely would love some Jordan 1s for Christmas, but it’s not happening so I’ll continue to dream.
With the resurgence of the Coronavirus, it seems like the masks are here to stay for a while longer. Nowadays, it seems like they have turned into a fashion statement for many people. They have color coordinated with their clothes and also rock their favorite team. As of now, I’ve only got a bunch of blacks one along with a couple of white and blue, plus a couple representing Florida State. I’ll definitely take some masks that has something to do with the Atlanta Hawks, Philadelphia Eagles and Black Lives Matter.
Gadgets for Home
This year, I’ve had the chance to check out a couple of great products from Worx. The portable power cleaner and their power share vacuum. In our household, it seems like my wife always want something hung. If I’m not hanging something up, then I’m in repair mode so I could use another screwdriver. The new Worx 4 Volt screwdriver provides three digital torque settings. The pushbutton settings enable the user to match the cordless tool’s torque, or turning force, to the job at hand. This lightweight and compact power driver is especially easy to maneuver in tight quarters and can handle any number of light- to mid-duty screw-driving jobs.
Shower Caddy Locker
My dad was my superhero growing up and I’d used to emulate everything he done. The teenage years hit and he always got on to me for taking all of his stuff from the bathroom. Now my son does the same thing and so the Shower Caddy Locker would make a great gift. The locker is a simple, safe and portable, in-shower storage caddy that includes a three-digit combination lock to provide security. There I’d place my colognes and more personal items he like to “borrow” all the time.
More Gifts I’d Love
New Barack Obama Book
During my limited downtime, reading is one of my favorite hobbies. The new book from Barack Obama called A Promised Land is on the top of my list. Obama has always been someone that I’ve admired and just not because he was the President.
Grooming Set- Hue
Over the past few months, I’ve went from a little beard to a full-fledged one. There are many grooming sets that I’d love to have for Christmas. Hue for Every Man is everything it says. No matter what your race, this product will work for you. The set comes with shampoo, conditioner, pomade, shaving lotions and awakening spray.
