HEADS UP: December has rolled around again and you are shaking in your shoes. What to get Aunt? And those other hard-to-shop-for-persons on your list? Never fear, the elves at The Wright Wreport are here! As is customary, until 24 Dec., we will introduce products, items and brands that we believe are worthy of consideration as a holiday gift(s). Happy, responsible shopping!

early read is that this winter will be cold. To that end, help the guy in your life stay warm with some Under Armour.

Guys are reluctant to buy a puffer jacket for themselves, ergo, God created Eve. The UA ColdGear® Reactor Hybrid Jacket has UA storm technology that repels water and the ColdGear reactor intelligent insulation adapts to any activity for nonstop comfort and total versatility. For $184.99, the sniffles and sneezes can be kept at bay.

The ColdGear® Reactor Hybrid Jacket comes with a pouch for easy transport.

Wow! Smart, and it’s also purdy cool, ‘cause it packs easily into the left pocket. That means, it can easily fit into a gym bag or backpack. He will love it, it’s Under Armour! (

Hey, while you are shopping, get him a pair of gloves, too! Under Armour has 87 glove choices (and that doesn’t include color or size) OMG! There are gloves for every sport, so try to keep it simple. A good choice is the US ColdGear® Infrared Fleece Ski & Snowboard glove ($29.99).

The ColdGear® Infrared Fleece Ski & Snowboard glove doesn't have to come off if you need to tap on your device.

It packs a lot of punch, including a thermo-conductive coating on the inside that holds heat without adding bulk. It also has great functionality with Tech Touch print on the thumbs and fingers that allows the use of touchscreen devices with the gloves on. (

I was inspired to recommend the gloves by the vision of a New York City police officer in the subway with a pair of Under Armours dangling from his back pocket.

If they are good enough for our men in blue, they are good enough for your man, too!
