Let’s cut to the chase. Guys would prefer to receive sensible and practical gifts instead of another bottle of cologne (still have unused bottles collecting dust from previous years), tools (we get the hint we should be doing more around the house), and “fashionable” clothing our significant would “love to see us in” (rather than what we actually like to wear).
Enough already! Give us something that will generate a legitimate smile when we open it – such as subscription-based products that will last the whole year through.
800razors.com, the burn-free razor company, suggests a few subscription-based gift ideas that will be used the whole year through:
Eat Like a Man – Let’s not forget that we guys have refined tastes beyond steak. Enter Mantry.com, the modernman’s pantry. Each month, Mantry sends a box of high-quality, locally produced food to your door in a crate! Subscriptions come in at $75 a month.
Shaving Time & Money – Wasting money on razors while waiting in long lines at the pharmacy is a thing of the past with a subscription to 800razors.com. Unlike other online razor companies that outsource crappy razors,800razors.com offers American made razors that compare to Gillette’s Fusion and Mach III for about half the price. For $9.99 a month, you’ll receive a handle with 4 high-quality 5-blade razor cartridges.
Smell Like a Man – Guys like to look and smell awesome but hate being told by their significant other what to do.Birchbox for Men gives guys the opportunity to smell, groom, and look great, without being pestered to try this new product. Subscription starts at around $20 per month.
Catching Up with Buds and Fish - Sometimes guys just want to get away and spend time with their buds catching fish and drinking beer. With MysteryTackleBox.com, guys are sent high-quality fishing products including lures, tackle, and seasonal bait. Monthly subscriptions are around $15.
Rich people wear watches. If you’re trying to get your paper right, get a badass watch and show some fools “what time it is”.
A new survey from Spectrem Group’s Millionaire Corner shows most wealthy investors wear wristwatches (67 percent), with the percentage of wearers increasing with wealth.
Younger investors are less likely to wear a watch, and 79 percent of individuals without one tell time with a cell phone or some form of digital clock. Other methods include a computer (5 percent), wall clocks (10 percent), and 6 percent “don’t care what time it is.
It’s “time” to get a watch, playa.
I’ve always been a fan of turtlenecks for the simple reason that they help keep you warm in the winter. But they also look cool as well, and the guys at GQ explain that the look is coming back. It’s a classic look as we all know and it’s also very versatile. You can wear a turtleneck with so many different jacket combinations and it will look great.
Check out this video on how to wear a turtleneck and you’ll probably want to grab some for the winter. We’re not as sold, however, on the slacks that are a little too short for our tastes.
During this past Sunday’s Packers and Vikings overtime tie, the Fox camera kept cutting to the Packers sideline and showing a man that I assumed was an equipment manager on the sideline.
But it was no equipment manager; it was Packers stud QB Aaron Rodgers, sporting a moustache that would make any maintenance man proud.
I marveled at the thickness of it. If a man can grow a superior moustache, it’s his obligation to society to maintain it, if only for the kids.
In this world of shaved chests and hairless faces, it made me quiver with delight.
Speaking of moustaches, who better to talk about their cultural relevance than beard physician and sex oblect, Dr. Allan Peterkin?
Do it for the kids, friend.
GLORY is the premiere kickboxing organization in the world. And even if you aren’t familiar with it yet, Spike TV is betting it will take off. Similar to the way Spike popularized the UFC with an unprecedented TV deal in 2005, the network is betting on the crossover appeal of kickboxing, featuring GLORY kickboxing events on a monthly basis.
“We really like this sport,” said Jon Slusser, Spike’s senior Vice President of Sports. “If you talk to people who like MMA, they love kickboxing. With the growth of MMA and the growth of combat sports over the last decade, a reintroduction of the sport is what we think will give this sport the boost it needs to really climb into the spotlight,” says Slusser.
Middleweight Wayne Barrett finds himself in the perfect place at the perfect time. On the mat is where his opponents have found themselves since the former Golden Gloves boxing champ turned pro.
As an amateur, Barrett compiled a 19-1 kickboxing and Muay Thai record. Barrett’s GLORY debut came in a September when he knocked out Robby Plotkin in the first round. In his second GLORY fight, he toyed with and then knocked out previously undefeated Mike Lemaire in round two. In a total of 23 fights, he has amassed 18 knockouts.
Saturday November 23rd on Spike TV, Barrett faces Schilling at Madison Square Garden in New York City for the inaugural GLORY Middleweight Championship.
MRSA – what the hell is that? MRSA is the bacteria that causes Staph infections and is a lot easier to say than its given name of “Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.” It may sound like a character off of “Sesame Street,” but it is no joke. Staph infections can mutate into a flesh eating “Necrotizing fasciitis” which can devour human flesh, and sometimes, entire NFL franchises, like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
One of many problems the Buccaneers have faced during a brutal 2013 season is an outbreak of MRSA, which has sidelined a total of three players, one as recent as the end of last month.
Some Bucs (and potentially former quarterback Josh Feeeman) fans would argue that head coach Greg Schiano is a form of bacteria that can’t be stopped. But a quick dose of Titan Protective Cleansers would go a long way.
MRSA is a bacteria that is resistant to most antibiotics but can be prevented by simply maintaining good hygiene, and that’s where Titan’s Post Battle products have done all the work for you.
Titan’s bacteria fighting repertoire is two-pronged. First, it cleans your body with a Hair & Body Wash containing a proprietary blend that fights bacteria and fungus on your body. Then, a different blend of antibacterial agents is employed in Titan’s Equipment Spray that will make that dingy Olympic bench press in your basement clean enough to eat off of.

We’re huge fans of Paul George. For anyone who is sick of Lebron James and the Miami Heat, Paul George and the Indiana Pacers represent the best hope to stop the Heat from a three-peat. The Pacers are off to a great start and are gunning for the top seed in the East.
We recently saw Paul George when he appeared as a presenter at the 2013 Gatorade High School Player of the Year Awards where Andrew Wiggins was honored. below you can see our interview with him as he discussed the 2013/14 NBA season.
George is a great guy, but as you can see from the photo above he’s in desperate need of some good fashion advice. His haircut is perfect, and the glasses look pretty good on him unlike some of the Urkel glasses worn by some other NBA players. But the rest of his attire is just hilarious. The pink pants and the studded shoes look like they’re part of a practical joke. Some NBA players like Dwyane Wade have come up with worse outfits, but this one is pretty bad. The overall NBA nerd look isn’t that bad and is certainly better than the droopy pants look, but some of the guys take things too far. Here George needs to tone things down a bit.

The Yankees need a new closer and Brian Wilson needs a job. But he doesn’t want a job with the Yankees bad enough to shave his beard.
Brian Wilson’s agent told Yankees general manager Brian Cashman that Wilson won’t shave his beard. “Cross him off the list,” Cashman reportedly said.
So, who is actually worse off as a result; the Yankees or Brian Wilson?
For a guy, there are few things worse than reaching into a toiletry kit for an item and coming up short on the necessary essentials. Whether it’s a trip to his significant other’s, “paratrooping” for a place to stay, or simply spending a night with friends, being unprepared can really dampen an overnight stay.
800razors.com, the burn-free razor company, shares its top 6 items that no man’s overnight kit should be without.
1. Toothbrush, Toothpaste, Floss – Oral hygiene is absolutely crucial. Not taking care of your teeth, tongue, and mouth is a sure fire way to scare away love interests and friends. The only thing worse than a seed stuck in between your teeth is rancid morning breathe.
2. Razors – If your name isn’t “wolfman,” you’re not going to grow a beard over night. However, unless you’re a meticulous shaver, you may have missed a strip on your face, jaw line, or down under. Ordering subscription-based razors from 800razors.com ensures you’ll always have high-quality, American-made razors ready to go.
3. Corrective Lenses, Solution, Case – Sleeping with contact lenses in invites unsightly eye irritation. Be prepared with solution and a case to keep your eyes and lenses clean. When the contacts are out, avoid looking like a blind bat by bringing eyeglasses.
4. Condoms – The Boy Scout’s motto “Be Prepared” is as important as ever when hanging out with a love interest. Nothing kills the mood like “I forgot one.”
5. Q-Tips – No one wants to see that yellow crap coming out of your ears. Steal a minute in the bathroom and dig it out. Q-tips also come in handy for other needed cleaning exercises, such as removing belly-button lint.
6. Deodorant & Cologne – Unless your natural musk is “Ironman” or “Extreme Blast,” don’t forget to bring deodorant and cologne to mask your manly, sweaty scent.
When out for the night, you can’t afford to forget anything within your toiletry kit! We hope you’ll share these tips from 800razors.com to safeguard against forgetful packing.
