THANKSGIVING SURVIVAL ESSENTIALS
The turkey. The relatives. The shouting. The drunken uncle(s). Yes, Thanksgiving can be stressful, and indeed, hitting the bourbon is definitely called for. But here are a few other things to stash in your suitcase before you head home, and some ideas on how best to use them. But you should probably bring along that flask just in case. You never know, you just might need it…
Tune in and tune out. You can use them for that choppy flight home (airline earphones generally stink), and then keep on popping them on each time the external volume needs to be adjusted.
The Ol’ Pigskin
Perhaps the best way to relax and enjoy yourself? A game of catch with the old man. Let’s face it – when was the last time you tossed around the pigskin with dad? He’ll appreciate it, and so will you.
Good Sir Advil can be your best friend once the shouting starts and the nephews act up. And those pesky holiday hangovers? It’s just a necessity. Keep a travel-sized bottle on hand to take as needed.
The Matzo Ball Soup
As it just so happens, Thanksgiving is also the first day of Chanukah. And this is one delicious treat you can enjoy regardless of your religious affiliation. Hot, comforting, and delicious. It’s like chicken soup for the thankful soul.
The Sweat Pants
With all those football games, all those beers, and all that turkey, you’re going to need some comfortable britches that can handle serious leisure. Sweat pants are the answer, and our new Couch Surfer sweat pants are the top of the line.
The Good Book
No, not that good book, although you can bring it if you like. We mean a gripping novel or piece of non-fiction to take your mind off your cares and worries.The New York Times always has something to say on the matter – you can see what they suggest here: http://www.nytimes.com/best-sellers-books/
The Bonobos Holiday Catalog
Once the turkey is done, it’s time to start thinking gifts. Say, have you seen the latest Bonobos holiday catalog? Bring it along, because we all know what happens on Black Friday and Cyber-Monday. Who knows, you might just score the sale of a lifetime.
Enjoy the holiday, and tell your family we said hello. Especially that cute sister of yo… oh, never mind.
