Look, everyone is putting out a Christmas shopping guide. I get it! They are super helpful and we love getting those ideas on what to buy, but do those people really love those things? I don’t know, but for me I just want to share my favorite things.
This is going to be a list of my actual favorite things. Everything on this list either I use and love, Emily loves, or we have gotten for the kids and they can’t live without this stuff.
Where do we begin? Of course, my favorite—CLOTHES!
Tracksmith Crew Sweater | $88
This is the sweater that I wear all the time and everyone always asks me about it. I have bought four of the eight colors and hoping to get two more of them. They are the best sweaters I have ever owned.
Nike Killshot 2 Sneakers | $90
I had originally gotten the white with a blue swoosh, now I own these basically all white shoes and love them. They go great with everything
AG Jeans Tellis Slim Fit | $198
I love a good pair of jeans, but these ones have blown me away. They are on the pricier side, but I know they will last. They have a great stretch, super comfortable, and everyone needs a good pair of dark jeans.
Next up, things for her!
Red Aspen Nails | $10+
After being quarantined, you find simple ways for self-care. Emily fell in love with Red Aspen nails that she can put on, but they last for a great amount of time, always launching new colors, and they even have them for your little girls if you want to match. Check them out and when they launch a new color, get it because they go FAST!
Shine Lip Gloss | $18
There is something about putting on your lip gloss and how it changes you, but yet it’s so simple. Shine Cosmetics lip gloss is absolutely a favorite for Emily and she wears it every single day.
If you know Emily, you know that she is a planner. She will write every single thing in her planner, checklists, birthdays, everything. These are her absolute favorite planners because she can lay them flat, it has boxes for checklists, and it’s a 17-month long planner. Absolutely perfect!
There is something about getting a brand new pair of workout shoes. Whenever I get Emily a new pair of gym shoes she loves it, but also she wears them forever. These are some of her current favorites.
Either or (him or her)
Apple Airpods | $129
I use these every single day. They are so simple, yet make a world of a difference. The pro version I am sure are great, I tried them on in New York when they first came out, but I am great with the simple originals. Really though, I love them, they are super comfortable, wore them during two marathons, and they are fantastic!
Personal Microderm (PMD) | $302
I wasn’t sure about getting a PMD, until I did and have realized why everyone loves them so much. Yes, they are pricier, but they really do make a difference for face cleaning and my skin has never looked better. Guess what? If you want a discount, I have one for you! Use code themoderndad20 for 20% off and get some great looking skin.
Beddy’s Bedding | $249+
Think about it, you purchase a sheet set, a comforter, pillow case, and shams. The cost of all those things adds up. Well, this is all of those things in one and it has changed our lives. I love that I can make all the beds in our house in no more than 15 minutes. Total game changer for bunkbeds, TRUST ME! And, if you use code moderndad you can get 20% off!
Fulton + Market Modern Apothecary | Variety of prices
As I have gotten older, I have realized I need to take better care of my skin and having a good skincare routine. Honestly, I use Fulton + Market every single day for shaving, washing my face, body wash, lotion, so many things! Check them out, and get 25% off with code Jason25.
