$50 Amazon gift card & menswear from Six8 Clothing [giveaway]

You're tall. You deserve designs that fit well. Six8 Clothing Company is here for you.

At 6'5" and on the lean side (200 lbs.), my experience finding clothes that fit has been frustrating to say the least. Pants are not long enough, or the waist is too big, or the shirt's sleeves are too short. It's tough finding clothes that fit.


But Six8 is awesome! I like that I can browse everything they carry and know they have my size. Six8 was founded in 2012 with the vision to deliver style and proper fit to the tall, fit man. They design their line of casual clothing with unique features that separate them from the rest.

Not only does Six8 ensure that each garment has the proper length. For most guys up to 6’7” like myself, the Tall size (LT, XLT, etc) is plenty long.

For the guys 6’8” and up, consider the Extra Tall size (L-XT, XL-XT, etc) to get an additional 3 inches in body length and 1.5 inches in sleeve length! If you're tall and lanky like I am, look no further.

Slim dark rinse jeans, long sleeve flannel shirt, and v-neck tee

I've got the slim dark rinse jeans and the denim fabric is made in one of the oldest, still operating mills in the U.S. - you’d be hard pressed to find a better quality fabric for your tall jeans.

Six8's jeans for tall men also have wider pocket openings, deeper pockets, and large zipper pull tabs that are easier to grab. These features accommodate the longer, bigger hands of the tall man. I don't have huge hands but I do like the extra room. Next time you’re shopping with someone else for tall jeans, be sure to compare all the features and not just the length

Just a tall man and his Vizsla

I really like the dark rinse jeans, and all the Six8 jeans in general are made true to size. Now, true to size with pants is a bit different. Let's say you wear a 36 inseam... well, a lot of companies call it a 36 when really your inseam is 34 or 35. Nobody wants to tell someone they have a huge size.

With Six8, your 36 inseam will truly be 36, which means it might be a hair longer than you'd expect. And this is great! Too often my pants are never quite long enough, which if you're tall you totally understand. Finally the length is there and my jeans are comfortable.

And let's not forget the shirts. Six8 carries a collection of tall tees, flannels, and polos, and I've had the pleasure of trying the long sleeve flannel shirt in blue & brown as you can see above. They're plenty long in the sleeves, which is crucial for me. When I stretch out my arms the sleeves still cover my wrists. The wrist test is how I determine if a shirt fits me well.

I also own the v-neck tee in blue. The fabric is made in the U.S. and is a soft blend of poly/rayon/spandex. And I mean soft. There's no cotton in the blend whatsoever and the tee drapes nicely with just a little bit of cling. It might be the softest tee I own, and I'll probably buy another color.

So who wants to win something? The guys at Six8 Clothing and I have partnered up to give away a $50 Amazon gift card to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

Dry-Lite 2.0 Athletic Shirt from TallSlim Tees [giveaway]

Catch my TallSlim Tees giveaway last summer? I'm back with more to share from these guys.

If you're tall then you might like this brand. I like that I can browse everything they carry and know that something will fit just right. The shirts come in a variety of sizes, styles, and colors for men 6'0" to 7'0." Sorry, ladies, nothing for you, but keep TallSlim Tees in mind for the men in your life.

TallSlim Tees was founded in 2014 by Dan Deceuster after years of frustration with t-shirt sizes (much like the frustration of my own with clothes in general), and designed a custom t-shirt specifically for tall, lean men like myself.

Check out their first video:



TallSlim Tees has a new version of the Dry-Lite tee. The second generation Dry-Lite has been redesigned with a tencel, polyester, and spandex fabric blend that will drapes well on my lean frame.

This new material is durable and moisture-wicking while being soft, light, and comfortable. These shirts have a tighter, more athletic fit. You’re going to love working out in one of these!

Dry-Lite 2.0 Athletic Shirt for tall men

Be sure to check out the sizing because it's not standard:
  • Small will fit guys anywhere from 6'0" and 130 lbs. to 6'4" and 150 lbs.
  • Medium will fit guys anywhere from 6'2" and 150 lbs. to 6'6" and 200 lbs.
  • Large is for guys who are 6'4" to 6'8" and 200 lbs. to 250 lbs.
  • X-large has you covered if you are 6'8" to 7'0" and 250 lbs. to 300 lbs.

Another shirt I proudly own is the tall v-neck, the original and top-selling v-neck t-shirt. It's made from a 50/50 cotton polyester blend - soft and lightweight. I'm 6'5" and the large fits like a dream.

This v-neck is designed specifically for slim & tall men looking for a tailored fit. It kinda hugs your figure so don't be shy now.

Typically I'm an XL shirt, but a L fits perfect.

Browse around the shop and you're bound to find something you like. Oh, and 2-day USPS Priority shipping in the U.S. is FREE! There's no catch. Shipping is free and I might add a couple more shirts to my collection.

As you might expect, TallSlim Tees and I have partnered up to give something away! One lucky Giveaway Guy reader will win a Dry-Lite 2.0 Athletic Shirt in your choice of size and color.

Sony MDRZX110 On-Ear Headphones [giveaway]

If you missed my Sony headphones giveaway a few months ago then you're in luck - I'm back with another pair.

I'm going to give away these on-ear headphones in black to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

Maximizing your personal audio experience has never been easier than with SONY ZX-Series. Some of the features:
  • 30 mm driver units deliver full, balanced sound for a complete listening experience

$50 Airbnb or Hotels.com gift card & Spartan Race rewards [giveaway]

I'm back with some cool Spartan Race news and a giveaway! Time to start planning for races in the spring and summer.

Spartan Race has races all over the U.S., and it doesn't matter if you're in a rural area or an urban area. The races are all over the place, so consider signing up. There are also races inside of MLB ball parks, which give you the chance to run throughout the park and even on the field. I got to run on the warning track at Fenway.


The news recently is that Marriott is now the official Global Hotel Partner of Spartan Race. Marriott Rewards is offering Spartan Race participants around the world exclusive, members-only tips, perks, and benefits.

If you're traveling far for a race, or just want to make a weekend of it, stay with Marriott near the location of your race and earn rewards. I like to book a hotel room the night before a race when the race is a couple hours away. It's more convenient that way so I don't have to drive a long ways for a 9 AM start time.


You can join for free as a new member of Marriott Rewards where you'll get a race registration discount, free VIP bag check, and a $5 coupon towards Spartan Race merchandise.

There are a ton of new races for 2017 and there are season passes for unlimited race entries too. With the season pass you can race as many times as you want.

Do yourself a favor - put on your big boy pants or big girl pants and sign up for a race. I'm the first to admit I don't have a tough mindset, but I feel #unstoppable after finishing a Spartan.


So get the lowest rate on your Marriott stay at participating properties near Spartan Race locations. Here in the Boston area there's a handful not too far from Fenway where I'm planning to do the race. Chances are you'll find some Marriott locations close to you too.

Now... who wants to win stuff? The folks at Spartan Race and I have partnered up to offer up a free entry to any 2017 Spartan Race in the continental U.S. AND either a $50 Airbnb or Hotels.com gift card. That's a total value of about $250!

Note: The code will work one time for any 2017 open heat (non-confirmed start time) in the continental U.S.

SoundWhiz Turbo wireless headphones & women's fitness [giveaway]

To be unstoppable, first you have to get started.

SoundWhiz makes sports audio their passion and strives to make women feel unstoppable. There is no better way to get motivated than by working out with music!

SoundWhiz has been working with running coaches and PTs around the world to create the free AtomiQfit program. Beginning with a 10-part 'Get Up & Run' Guide, they take you on a journey from couch to 10k. AtomiQfit is packed with expert tips, guidance, and challenges you won't find anywhere else.

Thousands of women have enjoyed wireless sound and unleashed workouts, and maybe you've seen the wireless headphones on someone at the gym or running around the neighborhood. They're more popular than you think...


Mother's Day is coming up you know. Maybe you can get your mom motivated to get fit and run this summer. Join the free AtomiQfit program and you'll get 15% off the most comfortable running headphones for women that last all day. Enjoy music, exercise, and stay connected via wireless with long battery life.

I have the Turbo wireless headphones, which are great for both women and men of course. The headphones give me the flexibility and freedom to work out anywhere (wireless), in any weather (waterproof), with great sound.

SoundWhiz insists on the ultimate finish, a softness that words can’t describe for a sports earbud. It feels good on my ears and it's pretty lightweight too. I like the over-the-ear hook design for the added security that the buds stay in my ear.


It won’t be long before you won't be able to resist the urge to start moving thanks to these headphones. I'm really impressed with the sound quality, although I'm not an audiophile despite my love for music and perfection.

One of the bonuses you get with the free AtomiQfit program is learning about running mistakes. Did you know running is the most common women's fitness practice? Yet, most women throw themselves into running without much thought for the basics. Unfortunately this leads to:
  • Poor running technique
  • Sore muscles, feet, or joints
  • Disappointment and a quick stop to running activities

AtomiQfit covers five surprisingly common mistakes made by runners, male and female, and what you can do to avoid them.


As for compatibility, the wireless headphones work with just about any Bluetooth device - Android, iPhone, smart phone, PC, Mac. Consider buying a pair as a gift for the woman in your life!

So who wants some headphones?! The folks at SoundWhiz have been gracious enough to offer up a pair of Turbo wireless headphones ($65 value) to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

Amazon gift card & featured author Julie C Gilbert [giveaway]

If you're in need of a book that's refreshing, ignore the mainstream junk and look to Julie C. Gilbert for your next read. 

Julie mainly confines her writing to three genres: Christian inspirational, YA real-world science fiction, and normal science fiction.

Writing has made her super picky about the things she reads, but normally, her reading list includes something that fits under thriller, mystery, science fiction, or fantasy.


The first book in her Heartfelt Cases series, The Collins Case, is one of the more popular books in her catalog. The book combines suspense, drama, and Christianity in an entertaining manner.

Working for the FBI certainly isn’t a “normal” job, but Special Agent Julie Ann Davidson has never encountered a case as personal as this one. Although not officially assigned to the case, Ann and her partner, Patrick Duncan, take up the cause of finding Rachel, Jason, and Emily Collins.

As if that task wasn’t enough, Ann and Patrick also have a baffling case of internet thievery to investigate. Who is Christopher Collins and what about his past is endangering his family? Where are Rachel and the kids being held? Where is God in the midst of chaos? Will Ann and Patrick arrive in time or will they find only pain?

Want to know a bit more about the author?


Julie C. Gilbert is once again answering to “Miss Gilbert” as a high school chemistry teacher. She also writes YA, science fiction, fantasy, and Christian stories about characters she comes to admire but certainly not envy.

How the characters deal with all the triumphs and troubles that come their way is always a fun adventure for her. When not writing or reading or lesson planning, she enjoys sunshine, coffee, long walks, tea, and video games, not necessarily in that order.

Occasionally, she attempts short poetry. The poems turn into songs, which she sings with abandon when nobody's looking.


So who wants to win something?! Julie C. Gilbert and I have partnered up to give away a few things and there will be four (4) winners - one lucky Giveaway Guy reader will win a $20 Amazon gift card, and three (3) more readers will each win a paperback set of these books:
  • Redeemer Chronicles 1: Awakening (YA fantasy)
  • Heartfelt Cases Book 1: The Collins Case (Christian mystery)
  • Devya's Children Book 1: Ashlynn's Dreams (YA scifi)

Clean your floors with HomeRight's SteamMachine [giveaway]

If you remember my steam cleaner giveaway with HomeRight last summer, thanks for sticking around. I'm happy to say we're back with another steam cleaner to offer one reader.

DIY projects are HomeRight's focus. HomeRight is confident their products and tools can help make your project easier, faster, and neater.

HomeRight's SteamMachine is the easiest way to disinfect and clean floors, stove tops, ovens, kitchen counter tops, bathroom fixtures and barbecue grills. The Model 53 steamer uses pressurized, high temperature, steam to loosen and dissolve dirt, grease, grime, and kill bacteria.

homeright.com/products/steammachine-multi-purpose-power-steamer

While it may look like something the pros use, anyone can get the hang of this. If I can, then so can you. Just fill the reservoir with water and it'll be ready to use in a couple minutes. It's easy and the results looks great!

Watch this short video to see for yourself:


Some notable features:
  • Simply fill with water to start cleaning and sanitizing
  • Natural, green solution for household cleaning and sanitizing
  • Professional steam power to steam away the toughest household dirt and grime
  • 8-foot hose with six attachments

You can take care of a lot of stuff with the SteamMachine. Aside from floors and walls, try attacking your kitchen counter top, stove top, and bathroom fixtures. Personally, I feel the bathroom has the most germs, so rather than a sponge or scrub brush for the floor, I reach for the Model 53 steam cleaner.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on DVD [giveaway]

You're not human if you haven't seen any of the Star Wars movies! And now that Disney owns it they've really been milking it. There's more to come still.

I saw Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in the theater with the fam. The wife fell asleep of course, but I thought it was pretty darn good. Highlight this next sentence to unveil a spoiler - it's a shame like every character had to die in this one. What the hell?


Did you know Rogue One was released on DVD recently? If you don't own it, stick around.

Now, if you haven't seen it yet, that's OK. There have been a couple trailers and I suggest watching this one. Prepare for goosebumps.


Rogue One takes place in a time of conflict (as Star Wars often does), and a group of unlikely heroes band together to steal the plans to the Death Star. As most of us know, the Death Star is the Empire's ultimate weapon, and it looks like Darth Vader will make an appearance.

In celebration of the most beloved fantasy series, one lucky Giveaway Guy reader will win Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on DVD.

IBS Awareness Month & Larabar giveaway

I've posted about Larabar a few times before. The bars are gluten-free, non-GMO, vegan, soy-free, and dairy-free. They're pretty good despite the lack of all those things.

I have IBS and dairy is one of my biggest triggers, so there aren't a lot of snacks that are tasty and fun to grab on the go. Larabar, however, has 22 flavors which is a pretty big collection if you ask me. Chances are they've got a flavor you'd like.



April is IBS Awareness Month and the syndrome kind of flies under the radar and is often misunderstood. If you have IBS like me, comment below if you're comfortable doing so.

What is irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)? It's a common disorder that affects the large intestine (colon). IBS commonly causes diarrhea, constipation, and a lot of abdominal discomfort that I won't sicken you with.

Back to Larabar. My favorite flavor is blueberry muffin. It's real fruity, rich, and tastes great. You've got blueberries, cashews, dates, lemon, and vanilla.

Four flavors of Larabar
Mmm, which one to eat first?

Larabars are great for on the go and at the office when I need a pick-me-up. The good thing is that they don't bother my IBS.

So who wants to win some grub?! Up for grabs is box of 16 bars (any flavor) for one lucky Giveaway Guy reader. Check out the 22 Larabar flavors.

Luv & Emma's Dry Pets Towel [giveaway]

If you're a dog owner you've probably needed something to dry off or wipe down your furry friend. Or maybe you live on a farm and have a pig or something that comes in the house, I dunno.

The snow has been melting and Henry's paws are usually wet and muddy when he comes back inside. There's a good chance he was digging too, which makes me groan. We've been using an old, crappy towel to wipe off his paws, dry him off, etc.

Forget using paper towels and family bath towels because Luv & Emma's has a cool towel for your pet.

Gotta wipe those dirty paws off when Henry comes in

The Dry Pets towel was created with practicality and convenience in mind, and you'll wonder how you ever lived without one. You and your pet will feel the softness and quality of this wonderful microfiber pet towel.

With the towel's attractive design and amazing ability to quickly absorb water, you'll be free from unnecessary paper waste and using your own towels. Plus I guess it's kinda fun to have hanging around for the dog.

Hangs on door handles

Imagine how nice it would be to have Luv & Emma's towel ready for you and your pet where you need it most. Like right at the door at arm's reach.

With its patented stretchable opening, the Dry Pets towel allows you to conveniently hang it from door knobs and wherever there's a hook of some kind.

Henry drying off from the rain outside

We hang our towel on the backside of the porch door (the side facing indoors) where Henry goes in and out of. As soon as he comes inside I can grab the towel first, and then wipe down his paws and whatnot before he's able to track stuff on the floor.

I've found the towel is pretty absorbent and washes easily. Vizslas love to surround themselves with blankets and crawl inside things, so Henry doesn't put up a fight when I throw the towel around him. Even as a dog that loves to mess around, he doesn't bite or tug at the towel. Look how good he's being in my pictures.

Want a towel for the pet in your life?! Luv & Emma's is graciously offering a pet towel to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

PLANK Eyewear wood sunglasses [giveaway]

Time for something different.

PLANK Eyewear specializes in creating men's and women's wood and bamboo sunglasses. Their frames are handcrafted, eco-friendly, and affordable.

Wood sunglasses are for the adventurous, the slackers, and everyone in between. I like David the owner's phrase - Get the wood out and get the word out.

PLANK's wood sunglasses are lightweight, unique, and natural. You can wear them just about anywhere. If you're like my wife and I, you'll take 'em with you hiking or to the dog park. With many styles available, I challenge you to tell me there isn't a single pair you like.

Chimborazo - Red Sandalwood Sunglasses

I typically look for the wayfarer style when shopping for sunglasses, and the Chimborazos are comparable, handcrafted from sustainable red sandalwood. They sit comfortably with flex hinges, fit even large heads like mine (hey, I've got a big brain), and they're stylin'.

Furthermore, to ensure your eyes are protected, all PLANK's sunglasses come with 100% UVA/UVB protection. So browse the collection and rest assured your eyes are protected.

Church Hill - Zebra Wood Sunglasses

Now... who wants a pair?! The folks at PLANK Eyewear have been gracious enough to offer up a pair of Church Hill Zebra Wood sunglasses to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

What is zebra wood? Zebra wood is used to describe several tree species and the wood derived from them. It's characterized by a striped figure reminiscent of a zebra and the name originally applied to the wood of a tree native to Central America.

Electric plasma lighters from Zlighterstore [giveaway]

What's something cool you carry with you? Maybe it's a sword key which I wrote about a few weeks ago.

Zlighterstore has something that is sure to spark conversation - electric lighters!

Inspired by automakers like Tesla that use batteries to produce clean, eco-friendly products, Zlighterstore made it their mission to make butane fuel a thing of the past. Fuel is the opposite of eco-friendly.

Dual arc plasma lighter

Zlighterstore is a small startup focused on delivering the latest innovations in lighter technologies at competitive prices. Their electric plasma lighters look just like a Zippo, but when you open them there are conductors that release a constant stream of high voltage electricity.

All you have to do is flip open the cap and press the button to get the little pink arcs firing, just like you see at the top of the silver lighter above. But be careful because the arcs are 900 degrees.

Wanna see the electric lighter in action? Watch this short video.


When traditional lighters run out of fuel, you throw 'em away, right? That's a waste of money. Zlighter lithium ion batteries can be recharged 500 times via USB (charger is included), which equates to tens of thousands of lights!

Single arc plasma lighters

Zlighters are also windproof, which I've tested. I even blew directly onto the arcs and they stayed lit. You don't have to shield the wind or cup your hands anymore.

So who wants an eco-friendly lighter?! The folks at Zlighterstore have been gracious enough to offer up a dual arc electric plasma lighter to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

DEXDOG chest plate harness [giveaway]

If you have a dog that pulls when you walk or hike with them, you should probably use a harness. Hooking the leash to the dog's collar will put a lot of strain on their neck when they pull, which obviously isn't good.

But with a harness that wraps around the shoulders, the pressure is around the body rather than the neck. All this is moot though if you've managed to train your dog to heel. Wouldn't that be nice?

Our Vizsla is a puller, as many sport dogs can be. I recently had the pleasure of getting my paws on a chest plate harness from DEXDOG.

Henry the Vizsla wearing a chest plate harness

DEXDOG has been featured in a popular dog blogs and national publications, and their harnesses have consistently been rated and reviewed as some of the best dog harnesses on the market.

The chest plate of the harness is padded and layered with a breathable material that keeps you dog cool and comfy. I didn't think of this 'til just now as I'm writing this, but the harness would be great to use in the car. You just need some kind of attachment to clip to the harness.

So as you can see, Henry's got the blue chest plate harness. It comes in six different colors and priced at no more than $19.99 depending on the size.

Henry wonders where we're going with his harness on

Using the DEXDOG harness makes walking Henry a lot safer and it has a better feel on the leash as opposed to hooking up directly to his collar. When he pulls ahead or tugs in a random direction, he doesn't have discomfort. Plus I don't feel guilty if I have to tug on his leash and make him stop.

As for sizing, be sure to follow the DEXDOG size guide. Henry is 32 pounds and wears the medium harness. I took his measurements too, but if you can't do that then go by the weight of your dog.


So who wants to win something for the dog in your life?! DEXDOG is graciously offering a chest plate harness to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader. Your choice of color and size.

Behold... sword keys for your home [giveaway]

Key designs are usually pretty boring. Chances are you lock your home once or twice a day, look right at that boring key, and go on with your day.

Well what about a key that's cool? Let me introduce you to The Key Armory, which makes sword-shaped keys for your home.

As kids, the guys at The Key Armory were inspired by heroes who wielded swords, and would strive to be more like them. Today, they remember their roots on a daily basis with keys - something simple that's used every day.

Blade of the Direwolf sword key, freshly cut

The Key Armory has graced me with a sword key of my own, the Blade of the Direwolf. This is awesome if you're a Game of Thrones fan like I am.

We can’t all be like Jon Snow with his legendary sword of Valyrian Steel (probably too heavy for me anyway), but we can keep a replica of his sword on our key ring. With the Blade of the Direwolf you can take on the White Walkers. Am I talking about the key or the actual sword? Hmm...

Actually, the Blade of the Direwolf sword key is not made from real Valyrian Steel, so lock your doors if you see White Walkers nearby.

Lock your door if you see a White Walker

Sword keys work just like any other key. Take it to the hardware store to be copied and cut and you're ready. Whenever I take my keys out I smile to myself when I see the sword hanging. My wife calls me a nerd, but hey, it's a conversation starter too.

OK, so not all keys are the same. You need to figure out which type of key way is best for you. It's probably one of two types, so check out the reference guide below. When you order a key from The Key Armory you select either Kwikset or Schlage.


So who wants a sword key?! The folks at The Key Armory have been gracious enough to offer a key of your choice (but not the pre-order keys) to THREE lucky Giveaway Guy readers.

Ice balls are great for drinks [giveaway]

9 out of 10 of you readers probably use ice cube trays at home, am I right? Keeping a tray or two in the freezer is pretty common.

But what about ice balls rather than cubes? Years ago I stumbled across a Kickstarter for a mold that makes a perfect ice sphere. That's when I first thought it was cool.

Let me introduce you to Ice Ball Makers. Spherical ice balls won't just make everyone jealous. Bartenders and professional drinkers use all sorts of ice for different reasons. Some people like a sprinkle of water in their drink, alcohol or not. This can bring out the taste.

Ice ball in a small glass

Other people may like a few ice cubes to chill their drink and have the ice water "water it down." But as the ice melts, it dilutes the drink, and you lose more and more flavor.

Ice balls take care of the dilution issue though. A sphere of ice exposes less surface area for the same amount of volume than a cube of ice. The less surface area that is exposed to the drink in your glass, the slower the ice will melt.

Therefore, a sphere of ice will melt slower than a cube. With help from Ice Ball Makers, you can use one of their mold trays to chill your drink without quickly diluting it.

One mold makes four ice balls

Using the ice ball mold tray is really easy. Put the two pieces of the tray together and then fill water through the four little holes. Fill them so it overflows a bit and then stick it in the freezer.

Honestly, don't expect a perfect sphere, but the balls still come out pretty good. There are far more expensive options out there, but these molds are affordable and easy to use.

More about the ice ball mold:
  • Made from non-toxic silicone
  • Dishwasher safe
  • Freezer safe
  • Microwave safe
  • Oven safe
  • Mold makes four 1.75” spheres

So who wants to try this?! The folks at Ice Ball Makers have been gracious enough to offer an ice ball mold trays to TWO lucky Giveaway Guy readers.

Nantucket Brand coastal inspired clothing & $100 gift card [giveaway]

There once was a man from Nantucket
Who kept all his cash in a bucket.
But his daughter, named Nan,
Ran away with a man
And as for the bucket, Nantucket.

That limerick is from 1902, and there have been a few R-rated versions since then.

I came across Nantucket Brand Clothing recently on my way down a rabbit hole of giveaways. NBC exudes classic, preppy style in its collection of men's and women's clothing and accessories, offering an island style to everyone. If you live on the coast like me, you probably appreciate a few oceanfront styles.


From colorful shorts, skirts, and pants in seersucker stripes, to classic polo shirts, tees, and sweaters, the NBC collection offers casual sophistication for every occasion.

And speaking of polos, I've got the Sankaty polo shirt, which is moisture-wicking and made from a quick-dry cotton-poly blend. It's got an athletic cut ideal for a round of golf (can't wait 'til spring), a tennis match, or just at the office (which is where I took the pic above).

As a tall guy (6'5") sometimes I have trouble finding shirts that fit well, but I don't have this problem with NBC! The material has a nice feel and isn't too heavy, so I imagine I'll be comfortable come summer time. Just four months to go...


This solid colored polo shirt comes in three colors - I like the red personally - and you can get it with or without the Nantucket Brand Clothing logo, a whale and compass. And I like logos, so naturally I gotta have that. There must be some term for an appreciation of logos...

My wife loves all things lavender and thinks the women's linen drawstring pants are really cute.


With a relaxed fit and straight leg silhouette, these drawstring pants offer a comfortable feel in soft, lightweight linen. You've got two front pockets, two buttoned back pockets, and wide belt loops. One thing to keep in mind - order a size up. My wife got one size up and the pants are just a bit snug. No complaints though.

Pair these linen pants with a t-shirt and sandals or maybe with wedge heels and a blouse for a casual evening look with a touch of coastal-inspired flair. The sandals look is my wife's go-to in the summer so I'm imagining many days of that.

However you decide to pair NBC's clothing, you can be assured that they'll reflect the Nantucket lifestyle - relaxed, casual, and comfortable.


You can visit the online shop or stop by their stores on Nantucket at 10 Federal Street (across from the post office) and at 54 Old South Road.

Who wants to win something?! The folks at Nantucket Brand Clothing have been gracious enough to offer a couple things:
  • One lucky Giveaway Guy reader will win a $100 gift card to the shop
  • A second reader will win three (3) pairs of red/white/blue ankle socks

Dogs taste the difference with Spot Farms [giveaway]

While browsing a few dog blogs, I came across a review for Spot Farms. It caught my eye because I'm a fan of all-natural things and I prefer to give my dog quality stuff whenever possible.

Spot Farms aims to make the best food and treats for your dog using the finest ingredients. They partner with farm families across the U.S to bring you the best chicken, turkey, and pork raised without antibiotics.

We take a lot of pride in the food we make and think your dogs will taste the difference!

Henry waiting for honey mango chicken jerky

I previously got my hands (or should I say paws) on a few varieties of dog treats. Spot Farms products are made with 100% all natural, human grade ingredients. This means the ingredients they use are certified fit for human consumption, but keep in mind the treats aren't for you to eat. They're for the dogs.

Set those dry pellet treats aside and consider something that's way better (and healthier) for your pet.

Henry about to leap from his sitting position

Additionally, all of the ingredients used are all natural. Artificial colors and preservatives are never used. Only the best for your dog.

And since the treats are made with human grade ingredients, that means you shouldn't store them for too long. As Henry would probably tell you, open up that bag soon and start handing out the treats.

I didn't realize this until I started looking at the details, but Spot Farms recommends refrigerating after opening to preserve freshness. You can probably get away without refrigerating as I have though.

Henry smells the chicken jerky in Jennifer's hand

We like to use jerky treats when we're outside, so when Henry obeys a command he's rewarded with a really good treat. It's harder to keep a dog's attention outside so that's why the dog gets the good stuff.

The other day we took Henry hiking around a reservoir and brought the honey mango chicken jerky along. After calling out to Henry and getting him to recall, he'd park his butt right down once we took the treat bag out. Good boy!

Jerky devoured in seconds!

Henry absolutely loves the Spot Farms jerky. We've given him other treat brands and he didn't quite take to some, but he doesn't hesitate to devour these treats. Spot Farms works closely with small family farmers who raise their chickens with care, and your dog will taste the difference just like ours has.

They offer a wide variety of all natural dog treats and ensure everything they make is chock full of things that are good for your dog. I highly recommend you give these a try for your furry friend.

Something else to consider is the line of whole grain and grain-free dog food. Spot Farms believes knowing where your dog’s food comes from is just as important as knowing what’s in it. They go right to the source, working with family farmers who feed their animals an all-vegetarian diet and never use antibiotics. Chock full of nutrients and bursting with flavor, the dog food recipes are made using only wholesome, human grade ingredients.

So who wants to reward their dog?! The folks at Spot Farms and I have partnered together to offer a prize package to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader:
  • Chicken jerky with flaxseed & vitamin E (big bag, 12.5 oz)
  • Chicken & sweet potato treats (big bag, 10 oz)
  • $10 Petco gift card

Make a shirt to order with Wry Toast Designs [giveaway]

My wife and I are in love with our Vizsla pup and I came across the Wry Toast Designs shop while browsing for Vizsla stuff.

Kelly is the owner of Wry Toast Designs, a life-long artist and professional graphic designer. She merges her talent with her love of dogs and lives in the Pacific Northwest. I've never been out there but I hear it's beautiful. Someday...

A decade ago Kelly decided to expand her horizons and design illustrations of dogs that are accurate, yet unique. Her goal was to create illustrations that would have you thinking, "Hey, that's my dog." And her Vizsla design definitely caught my attention.

Vizsla gaiting t-shirt in tangerine

Love your dog? You'll love all the original dog designs. The design I've got, a gaiting Vizsla, is hot pressed on the shirt with long-lasting and durable vinyl. The shirt is heavy weight, ring-spun, and garment dyed. It's a nice shirt for cooler weather since it's heavy.

The shirt is also pre-shrunk, which is something I specifically look for nowadays. Don't you hate it when you wash something and it shrinks? So frustrating, but not with Wry Toast Designs' shirts.

The shirt color shown above is tangerine. As is usually the case with online shopping, keep in mind that the colors represented will differ from one screen to another.

Vizsla gaiting t-shirt in yam. Photo quality isn't great - sorry!

The shirt I have is actually in yam - not tangerine, despite the similar look. Yam is kind of a rusty color and you might compare it to the University of Texas' burnt orange. I like yam because it's similar to my Vizsla's coat.

Oh, and the shirt fits true to size. I wear an XL and it fits exactly as expected.

Henry and his beautiful golden rust color

Most dog breeds are available in illustrations, but if you don't see the breed you're looking for you can request a breed. You can check out all designs at Wry Toast Designs Flickr.

If you don't want the design of a dog, there are also designs like this one:

Women's crew neck t-shirt

This women's shirt is hot pressed with long-lasting and durable metallic vinyl. Super-soft baby jersey knit. Lots of colors and styles available.

Make a shirt to order! Kelly of Wry Toast Designs has been gracious enough to offer one lucky Giveaway Guy reader ANY t-shirt from her shop.

Generic blade refills for Gillette Mach 3

Gnargly also offers the basic blade, which is made to fit all Gillette Mach 3 handles. Mach 3 is usually my go-to for shaving.
