Holiday Gifts 2020: Eric’s Favorite Things

I’m almost done with all my holiday shopping this year but getting a gift for Eric always stumps me! I asked Eric to share his favorite things that he has either received or bought for himself. Hopefully this will help you if the men in your life are hard to shop for too!

The wood fired grill was the BEST purchase of 2020 since our whole family benefits from it. The shoes and watch are used almost every day. The hot sauce is his favorite and the subscription was a gift a couple years ago that is still used.

Here’s a round up of Eric’s favorite things:

1. Sonos speaker with Alexa

The Sonos speakers with Alexa built in are the best. They play our favorite music, play lists, sleep sounds for the kids, and set our timers for cooking. We have these in every bedroom and on our main level.

2. Adjustable Standing Desk

This desk was a great purchase for 2020. It adjusts to a standing desk and is perfect since he’s working from home more often. We did quite a bit of research and this one was the best for the price point and design. It was also very easy to put together.

3. The new XBox

Eric plays his xbox a couple times a week with a group of guys. I wish there was a game for a girls night because he has so much fun!

4. Whiteford’s Cayenne Pepper Sauce

This hot sauce is Eric’s favorite and it is made locally. The cayenne pepper sauce and spice rubs are all great.

5. Apple Watch

He loves his watch so he can be phone free when he is with the kids, and still get important alerts when necessary.

6. Dollar Shave Club Subscription

This is a great (and practical) gift that keeps giving. Two years ago, I gave this subscription wrapped with their “gift set” products to Eric and he still loves it.

7. Traeger Grill

This definitely tops this list this year of gifts! I bought Eric this wood fired grill for his birthday and I feel like we are eating restaurant quality food every night he cooks on it. We have grilled turkey on it for Thanksgiving, made wood fired pizzas and brisket tacos (to name a few favorites!)

It links up with your wifi and there’s even an app that you can adjust temperature and more. There’s a few options available at different price points. We have the Traeger Pro 575 which has been the perfect size for us.

8. Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700

Eric wears these for his work calls at home (with 4 kiddos at home too the noise cancelling is a must!). They are also really great for airplanes.

9. OluKai Shoes

“Fun shoes that are good quality – and a good price.” (He is kind of a shoe snob so if he says they are good, I’m sure they are!)

I’ll be sharing the kids favorite things too very soon!!

Also in case you missed it, here’s a link for My Favorite Things of 2020 (I included a few gift codes that are active throughout this week!). I’ve been living in the loungewear and leggings šŸ™‚
