Gear Up For The Outdoors With A $50 REI Gift Card



REI gift card giveaway

If you’re an outdoors enthusiast who loves to hit the trails, slopes and waterways, you’re in for a real treat, as we’re giving away a $50 REI gift card to one lucky reader!

What began as a group of 23 mountain climbing buddies is now the nation’s largest consumer co-op. But no matter how large they grow, their roots remain firmly planted in the outdoors. Their passion for adventure is clear, and they know first-hand the importance of quality outdoor gear.

From backpacking to cycling to staying in shape and more, you’ll be able to outfit your outdoor activities with the latest gear, clothing, and footwear with an REI gift card. As we all know, every penny counts this holiday season. Me, I just spent a bundle getting new lower units for my boat, so I can definitely appreciate getting something for free.

To enter the giveaway, simply leave a comment below and tell us what you would buy if you win! We’ll pick a winner at random on December 31st at 5pm EST. Contest open to US residents only.

Good luck!

Enter To Win A $100 Gift Card So You Can Upgrade Your Summer Wardrobe



If you’re looking to update your Summer wardrobe, then you have come to the right place, as we’ve partnered with Nakturnal to give away two $100 gift cards to East Dane.

For those of you unfamiliar with East Dane, the popular men’s fashion e-tailer launched back in 2013 and delivers a thoughtful, straightforward approach to men’s fashion. They serve up heritage brands and new names for men who are more interested in style than trends — those guys who understand that dressing well comes from a combination of confidence and quality construction, and not just a trendy label.

East Dane is your one-stop shop for the best men’s fashion. with a brand roster that includes familiar names like Helmut Lang and Norse Projects, along with up-and-comers like Raen and Saturdays NYC. There are so many great pieces to choose from that it’s easy to fall down the rabbit hole!

So how would I spend a $100 East Dane gift card?

Polo Ralph Lauren tiger tee

This Polo Ralph Lauren tiger logo tee is a nice alternative to the traditional polo player that we are all used to seeing, and the quality of their shirts are second to none. If you’re looking for a modern/slim fit, buy your normal size. If you want a regular fit, go one size larger.

Emporio Armani Renato Watch

Since I will be showing some skin, I might as well accessorize with some wrist bling. East Dane has a great selection of mens watches to choose from, like this Emporio Armani watch, which offers a clean yet sophisticated look, without breaking the bank.

Saturdays NYC swim trunks

Heading to the beach? Then you’ve got to make sure you look the part. Saturdays NYC has killer swim shorts that will help you stand out from the crowd (and get the attention of the ladies), like this unique tropical number.

Come to think of it, I might need to check out their selection of mens bags, as my current bag is looking pretty rough. They’ve got a sweet Filson small duffel bag that is calling my name.

So I’ve picked out a few of my favorite pieces, and now it is your turn to do the same! To enter the giveaway, simply visit East Dane and pick out your favorite item from the store. Then leave a comment below telling us what it is (even better, link to it!) and you could win one of two $100 gift cards!

We will pick two lucky winners at random on July 3rd at 5pm EST. Located outside of the US? International shipping is free for orders of $100 or more, but any potential customs tariffs must be paid for by the winner. These vary greatly from country to country based on the items you purchase.

Good luck!

Enter To Win A Carrier Cor Wi-Fi Thermostat



Carrier Cor Wi-Fi Thermostat

If you’re looking to make your home a little smarter, it’s time to invest in a smart thermostat. Sure, you probably already have a programmable thermostat that lets you turn down the heat or A/C while you’re at work, which helps to bring down your energy bill each month. But they run on simple schedules and have limited capabilities.

Enter the Carrier Côr Wi-Fi Thermostat. As the name suggests, this smart thermostat can be accessed over Wi-Fi, allowing you to control your home’s heating and cooling from anywhere in the world, as long as your smartphone has an Internet connection. Simply fire up the Côr app and adjust the temperature to your liking.

Just think about that for a second. Have you ever gone away for a long weekend in December and forgot to lower the heat before you left? Or worse yet, you go on vacation in the summer, and in order to save on utilities, you turn off the A/C complete. Sure, you save money on your utilities, but when you get back home, it can take hours for the house to cool down again!

Carrier Cor Wi-Fi Thermostat

With a smart thermostat like this, those situations are a thing of the past.

The innovative Côr thermostat is designed to combine home comfort with reduced energy use, with homeowners saving an average of 20% on their heating & cooling energy costs. Features like Ideal Away let the thermostat intelligently adapt beyond manual programming for greater efficiency, while still meeting your ideal comfort levels. Energy reports help you see exactly when your energy dollars are being spent so you can modify settings to maximize savings. It even provides you customized energy saving tips. How cool is that?

As you can see, the Côr thermostat is also pretty sharp looking, with a full-color touchscreen display (which features intuitive, on-screen prompts, along with local weather 4-day forecast), a screen off option during sleep mode, and motion sensor that brightens the screen when it senses someone approaching it. The silver bezel gives it a modern look, and it takes very little wall space, measuring at 4″H x 4″W x 1″D.

Carrier Cor Wi-Fi Thermostat

The Carrier Côr Wi-Fi thermostat retails for $250. For more information on Carrier systems, please visit

As promised, we’re giving away a Carrier Côr Wi-Fi thermostat to one lucky Guys Gab reader, and it couldn’t be easier to enter the giveaway. Simply leave a comment below telling us why you want to win. We’ll pick a winner at random on June 30th at 5pm EST.

Good luck!

This Mother’s Day, Treat Mom To Breakfast In Bed.. And Maybe Even A Spa Gift Card



Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Bays English Muffins, but all opinions are my own.

It’s hard to believe, but we’re just a few weeks away from Mother’s Day. Do you know what you are getting that special superwoman on your list? My suggestion – Start things off on the right foot and treat her to breakfast in bed. She will appreciate the effort.

While the notion of cooking breakfast might seem daunting to some (myself included), there’s no need to panic, as we’ve partnered with Bays® English Muffins, who have provided us with some tasty and delicious Mother’s Day recipes that are easy to make and sure to please!

Trust me, if I can make these dishes, then you can too. See how easy it is for yourself:

If she’s a fan of French Toast, Bays Classic French Toast substitutes boring bread for English muffins. The Mattina Toscana is a restaurant-quality egg sandwich. The Chocolate Chunk Cheesecake Spread is perfect for those Mom’s with a sweet tooth. But my personal favorite would have to be the Strawberry Ricotta Balsamic Bites.

Bays English Muffins comes in four different varieties (Original, Sourdough, Multi-Grain and Honey Wheat), so feel free to use whichever one best suits her tastes in your dish. You can find them in your grocer’s refrigerated case next to the eggs – not in the bread aisle.

You can find these recipes and more on Bays website under the recipe tab, but I’ve included the Strawberry Ricotta Balsamic Bites recipe here for your convenience:

Strawberry Ricotta Balsamic Bites recipe

1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1 pkg. (4 oz.) goat cheese (or whipped cream cheese)
3 teaspoons grated lemon rind, divided
4 BAYS English Muffins, any variety, split
8 medium strawberries, trimmed, sliced
2-1/2 tablespoons balsamic glaze
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

Mix ricotta cheese, goat cheese and 2 teaspoons of the lemon rind.
Toast English muffins.
Spread about 2 tablespoons ricotta mixture on each muffin half. Top evenly with strawberries; drizzle with glaze. Sprinkle with remaining 1 teaspoon lemon rind, salt and pepper.

Bon Appétit!

But wait, there’s more!
