More Gadget Stocking Stuffers
Stocking stuffers have come a long way since candy canes and decks of playing cards. Kids today love gadgets and electronics so there’s a whole new set of possible gifts. Small gadgets and gadget accessories offer great gift ideas in today’s world and we’ve got some more to go with the stocking stuffers highlighted in our Holiday Gift Guide.
Dual USB Charger
The first one is small and simple but very useful. We’re always on the go, and now everyone in the family or in the car has their own gadgets. With more people needing a charge, it’s great to have a charger that can accommodate more than one device.
Bracketron offers a Dual USB Charger (pictured above) which allows you to charge or power two devices at the same time in any vehicle. The Dual USB Charger is available now for $24.95 at Bracketron.com and is available at consumer electronics retailers. It includes both high and low-current USB outputs, perfect for quickly and safely charging your tablet and handheld mobile device simultaneously while you’re on the road. Of course, you need to be careful while driving! The pocket-sized device is compatible with iPad, iPhone/iPod, MP3 players, satellite radios, GPS units, smartphones and more. It definitely fits into a stocking and it’s perfect for people on the go (and that includes kids!).
Toddy Smart Cloth
With so many gadgets offering touch screens, our screens easily get dirty and smudged. To clean them properly it’s handy to have something specifically designed to do the job. The Toddy Smart Cloth is a carefully handcrafted microfiber cloth provides effective, scratch-free cleaning for your iDevices, screens, camera lenses and more, and it features an antimicrobial coating. It’s offered in a bunch of cool designs, so you can pick one that fits the person on your list. One side of the cloth is made to clean, while the other has the design and makes it easy to hold and swipe the device. Check out their website to pick out a cool design.
Luna Voyager II
Finally we have a clock radio for the Apple generation. Everyone appreciates a cool clock radio for their room, and now you can wake up to your favorite music by hooking up your iPhone, iPod or iPad to this device from XtremeMac. The Luna Voyager II is an easy to use alarm clock that delivers 4 watts of power and dual speakers for superior stereo sound. Setting the clock is simple with the auto time set feature, simply dock the desired Apple device and the time is set automatically. Users can choose to set alarms directly from the Apple device with the free Luna Voyager App or manually on the dock itself. Dual independent alarm settings allow two users to wake to iPod, FM radio or chime. Additionally, the Luna Voyager II features a battery backup to ensure users will never miss an alarm. It’s great for kids and adults alike.
Enjoy the final week of shopping!

UNTUCKit shirts offer a great fit
Every guys needs great dress shirts, and now we like them to look good when they’re untucked as well as the untucked shirt with jeans is still popular. Both the tucked and untucked look works these days, and you can make the call depending on the setting, but it’s nice to have shirts that look good both ways.
With that in mind we checked out the dress shirts from UNTUCKit, a first-of-its-kind company that specifically designs button down shirts to be worn untucked. These shirts were created from the bottom up and follow a specific measurement guide that you can see below to guarantee a perfect fit for every man so that you’ll look polished with minimal effort. We tried the style pictured here (Casablanca Valley) using the size chart and were very happy with the shirt. It felt great and fit perfectly and it looked like it was specially made to stay untucked. Yet we also wore in tucked in with a black suit and it looked great that way as well.
The shirts come in a wide variety of colors and styles as you can see on the website, from casual plaids to dressier solids, and they are 100% cotton shirts.
For the guys, you should definitely try these for yourself. For anyone shopping for guys, use the measurement guide and buy some as a gift. For more gift ideas check out our Holiday Gift Guide.

Stylish golf shirts from Sub70
Fashion trends for men have evolved in recent years as a slimmer, more athletic fit has become the standard in everything from suits to t-shirts. This more stylish look has also had an impact on the usually stodgy golf world, as younger golfers have made their mark on the tour.
Sub70 sent us some samples from their golf line which embraces these new style trends as the “classic golf shirt goes modern.” Check out their site and you’ll see a wide variety of European-fit polos in a full range of styles and colors. We checked out the Zane/White golf shirt pictured here and loved the styling. Some of the shirts are trendier than others but the modern styles definitely stand out as something new and fresh. The all-polyester shirts are very comfortable, but they are definitely tighter and the sizes run smaller than expected. They are ideal for a leaner and more athletic build, so it’s not for guys who consistently choose beer and the buffet line over the gym.
The shirts make a great gift for golf enthusiasts who have a sense of style. If you’re an avid golfer and want to break free from the more traditional look, these shirts are for you as well.
