I have been extremely good. As a boy, I remember walking the line all year long in order to maximize my Christmas take. No spitting, hitting or talking back. I helped my brother take out the garbage multiple times and tried not to whine when I was getting up for school. I deserved the good stuff then and now. Today, I work hard, pay my taxes, workout regularly and eat right. So what am I wishing Santa will bring me this Christmas?
Everyone needs a scarf like this. Long, luxurious and incredibly light. Let it hang loosely or wrap your neck multiple times as you hit the slopes. Made from very lush Baby Alpaca these, scarves are good to share but more fun to keep for yourself.
Our luxury alpaca hand warmers are some of the most comfortable pieces you will find available on the market. They are so soft and will keep your digits warm all winter long. Pick up a couple pair for you and your loved ones. They will surely coin you the best gift giver this year.
With all the visiting, celebrating and partying, every guy needs a quick fix for the do. We are not shy to the grooming game and this time around we recommend FIBRE Dry Wax. It offers a quick, firm hold with little mess so you can be out the door in minutes.
Available at 7Salon in Bellevue and Seattle, WA.
Every holiday needs some spirit and wine is on our list. BFM was lucky enough to have Lachini Vineyards of Woodinville, WA pouring at our Holiday Social earlier this month and we want to spread the word to you. We tasted their Pinot Gris months back at a benefit featuring Lachini Vineyards and we were hooked. Visit their website to find distributors nationwide. Be sure to pick up a few bottles for celebrating the season.
Some Christmas memories:
Financial Advisor and Entrepreneur Scott Muenz who traditionally practiced Hanukkah, turned to Santa one year to fulfill the biggest gift on his list-a Transformer action figure. His mother obliged and even went as far as to buy him a tree to better celebrate the day. When Christmas morning arrived St. Nick had come-oh joy! But he left behind Transformer sheets minus the action figure, and young Scottie learned that hard lesson of Santa doesn’t always bring what we want. That is why we leave him a list. He has choices.
Personal Trainer and avid traveler Kenny Dirkson remembers being so excited about seeing Santa one year that he woke up a little too early and witnessed elves (AKA his parents) prepping the family room with treasures for Christmas morning. He was devastated to learn the truth. Curiosity killed the cat and his belief in Santa that year. Despite his childhood disappointment, he claims he is still a good boy anyway.
