Thomas’s favorites from hoodies to skincare
Tactical Short: Last year I ditched all my Nike shorts for these guys. The tactical short (5-inch inseam) is where it's at and has been the only short I rock for my workouts. Durable, lightweight, minimalist in design (that was my problem with the nike shorts, way to crazy design wise for me.)
Nike Shoes: With that being said, Nike is still king of the kicks and these shoes are the ultimate trainer. I have always been a big fan of the Metcons but they were not great for mobility, jogging, or HIIT workouts. They were a purely lifting shoe. The Nike Free Metcons solve that problem. These are a great all around gym shoe.
TRX Training System: If you are tight on space but looking for a full body workout solution, I highly suggest these. It was the first piece of equipment I bought for our home gym and I use it all the time. The workouts are endless and they are super versatile.
Crewneck Tees: This was on the last year and it is back on the list again this year. It is the only T-shirt I have worn outside the gym. The fit is perfect and the colors are on point. I have not been able to find a better tee.
Clay Pomade: I have been using this stuff for the past 3 years now. It's a matte finish that gives you the perfectly messy done look without all the spikes and shine. Branding is on point with this one as well!
Yon-Ka Mens Foaming Scrub: Face scrub with those little beads to exfoliate. Poppy appreciates my tight pores.
Yon-Ka Mens Hydrating Face Moisturizer: What is batman without robin? This is the robin to my face scrub and I use it ever night. This is the pre bedtime cream that keeps my skin looking less like a leather saddle bag and more like Poppy's face. A little work now goes a long way later.
Slim Fit Jeans: Finally found a new pair of jeans that I love. Slim fit, stretchy material, comes in a million different colors. Paige crushed these! I am a big fan of the light blue faded look.
Storage Containers with Lids: You know you are dad when storage options get you excited. Tell you what though, these storage bins that come in a handful of different sizes are legit! They all live up in the attic right now but one day when I have a garage I am going to get that rack that hangs from the roof that holds these bins. Time to get organized AF.
Wave Solo Vibration Therapy Ball: You know you are getting old when you wake up sore AF for like a month straight. I still feel young and I hit the gym with the same focus and intensity as someone in their 20s but my recovery is just not the same. After dealing with a crazy sore back for two months it was time to step up my recovery a notch. Enter the Wave Solo. It's like vibrating softball. Anyone who has done any deep tissue and rolling work with a lacrosse ball knows how effective that can be. Now, level that up a notch with vibration and say good by to those sore spots that have felt impossible to hit. | Available at Amazon, Therabody, Target, & Best Buy
TheraCup Portable Cupping Tool: Because I wanted to go all in on my soreness, I also got a couple TheraCups. I have never cupped before but had always been interested. It's pretty amazing how easy these are to use and I have worked them into my weekly recovery program anytime anything is sore. Usually like 15-20 min 3x a week. It gets the circulation going in sore spots and helps disrupt any stagnation. Bonus points for the badges of honor it gives you post cupping session. | Available at Amazon & Therabody
Slant Board: Who here as ever had sore knees? For years my knees hurt when I would squat or lunge with any weight. This soreness worked into my back and really got in my way of making progress in the gym. Enter the slant board. There are a million different ways to stretch and workout on this thing while building stronger knees, tibs, ankles, and hamstrings. Now my pain has gone away and my twigs for legs are starting to grow into beautiful oak trees. You can read all about the various workouts and stretches from knees over toes guy.
For the Toddler
Some of our favorite toys that would make perfect gifts for any toddler
Wooden Kids Dollhouse: literally just founding up the things I'm eyeing for Poppy this year! Here we go - we're very into dolls
Pink Butterfly Twirl Dress with Wings: If you've got a little one that loves dress up, you need this.
Wooden Birthday Cake: We're super into singing happy birthday in this household.
Wooden Pasta Playset: Teaching her young
Princess Castle Magna-Tiles Structure Set: Adding these to the bunch. We spend a solid 45 mintues a day building towers.
Cash Register Playset: So we can practice checking out at the farmers markets.
Kids Wooden Mini Golf Set: Thomas' goal is for Poppy to be a golfer. We're going for it.
Wooden Kids Kitchen Playset: We got this for her last year and its the only kitchen that is 1: cute 2: won't fall over when pulled and 3: doesn't have sharp corners.
Snack Shack Kids Canvas Playhouse: How cute is this!! Need it!
Wooden Kids Art Easel: Upgrading our easel situation for this come Christmas.
Wooden Train And Table Set: This is so rad and I love that it's not on the floor
Wooden Toy Kids Workbench: Another one we got last year - so fun when friends come over to play.
Garden Wheelbarrow Set: Cutest of cute.
Mermaid Sneakers: These are our favorite shoes and we have them in like 3 sizes.
Green Guitar: She's been asking for a guitar since a friends birthday party a few months ago.
Babyccino Maker: ON FREAKING BRAND.
For the Tech Dude
The best of the best tech for your home
Sonos Sub Mini: It's all about the bass and this little guy packs the full punch. I am currently working this into our bedroom to play nicely with our soundbar. The footprint is smaller than the current sub but the design is on point and the sound is great.
Air Tags: Whether you are trying to not lose your luggage, keys, wallet, or child these little trackers give you a solid piece of mind. We traveled to Italy this summer and the second we touched down in Rome I fired up my app to make sure the luggage made the trip across the pond. Everything made it and I was worry free getting off the airplane.
GoPro Enduro Battery: GoPros are great. Timelapse and Nightlapse are great. You know what is not great? Having to get up 3 times during one night to get an epic nightlapse and sunrise. This all changes with the enduro battery. Finally a long lasting battery from GoPro.
Apple Watch: There is one main reason I use the Apple Watch. If you don't track it you can't measure it. With the apple watch I am able to track my sleep, my steps, my workouts, my heart rate, my calories burned, etc. You get the picture. I have found that I am typically in the best shape when I am closely monitoring and tracking all of these things. If you don't measure anything it's hard to have a basis for knowing if you are making progress or not.
Rapsodo Mobile Launch Monitor: For you golf geeks out there who are looking for a little more data on your swing but do not want to drop the 20k for a trackman or GCQuad - this little guy gets it done. It's not perfect but for the price it delivers and will get your distances and club path dialed.
GoPro Hero 12: It had been about 4 years since we upgraded our last GoPro and I tested this one out and it was awesome. Overall higher resolution, more stability, and more flexibility to adjust and save your favorite settings.
8 Sleep Cooling Mattress Pad: My sleep has never been better the past couple months and it's all in thanks to the 8 Sleep Pro Pod Cover. My side of the bed is mega cold while Gaby's is kinda cold. I also no longer need an alarm because I can set the pad to warm my side of the bed to a temperature that wakes me up naturally. 10/10 highly recommend.
For the Coffee Snob
For the person who takes their daily cup of coffee pretty seriously
Coffee Bean Grinder: A good coffee bean grinder is one of the most important parts of making a great cup of coffee. This grinder is our all time fav and has withstood the test of time. It also doesn’t break the bank and has a ton of useful options so you can make anything from an espresso to a french press coffee. | Available at Amazon, Williams Sonoma, & Crate & Barrel
Espresso Machine: Thomas is a coffee / espresso snob and uses our espresso machine multiple times a day. It has all the options you need to customize your shot which is great. It also comes with great features like the visual pressure gauge and the tamp holder. | Available at Amazon, Williams Sonoma, & Crate & Barrel
Coffee Bean Canister: Keeps coffee beans fresh.
Mug: Who doesn't love a good coffee mug?
Tamp Mat: If you already own an espresso machine this is something you probably didn’t know you needed. It protects your counters and gives you a good surface to tamp your coffee.
Digital Scale: This is great for weighing ground coffee or the yield of your espresso shot.
Keep Cup: A great reusable glass coffee cup where 1% of all revenue is donated to protect the environment.
Handheld Milk Frother: Makes the frothiest matcha lattes in no time.
Drip Coffee Scale: This is a great coffee scale that doesn’t break the bank. It gives you weight and time which are the two basics for a great cup of coffee. | Available at Crate & Barrel, Amazon & Williams Sonoma
Roseline Coffee Subscription (15% discount with this link or use code WHATSGABYSIPPIN at checkout): There is nothing better than a great cup of coffee and nothing worst that a bad cup of coffee. Fortunatley for us Roseline delivers the goods. Based out Portland Oregon (instant coffee cred) Roseline not only sources some of the best beans on the planet but they roast your coffee to order. That means your beans will not be sitting in a warehouse for 6 months losing their flavor. You buy a bag or a subscription from them and you can ensure your coffee will be Fresh AF when it arrives on your door step.
Variable Temperature Electric Kettle: This electric kettle lets you select the temperature you want to heat your water to so you get the perfect temp for your cup of green tea, black tea, or even french press. | Available at Amazon, Williams Sonoma, & Crate & Barrel
Pour Over Set: The ultimate pour over set.
WDT Tool and Self-Aligning Stand: This little tool eliminates clumps in your coffee grounds and improves the consistency of your espresso shot.
54mm Dosing Cup: This dosing cup fits a 54mm portafilter and lends for an easier and tidier way to weigh ground coffee.
Coffee Tamper: This will change your espresso game and you will never go back to the tamp your machine came with.
Kitchen Tools Under $50
My most used kitchen tools – all the basics

Wooden Spoon: People always get upset when I use a metal spoon in a stainless steel pot, so use these instead.
