Modell's Holiday Gift Guide

The holiday shopping season is in full swing, which means the fruitcake and nutcrackers will be flying off the shelves at a furious pace.

Why not mix things up this year and pick up a few presents that will do friends and family some good? Something that gets them off the couch and gets them outdoors, or, at the very least, in an active state.

It seems like it’s getting harder and harder to find time to be active these days, but here are a few of our favorite gifts that’ll help encourage friends and family to get up and get out there:

Games

For the next holiday tailgating party, you better have some good games on hand to keep people busy while the food is on the grill.

The Franklin Three-Game Combo offers the perfect trifecta: golf toss, beanbag toss and disc toss, great for all ages.

In addition to the three-game lawn combo, consider picking up a few tabletop games for when it’s too cool to battle outside. Some of our most popular tabletop games include Westminster’s rod hockey, Foosball and air hockey.

Gloves

If you’re playing outdoors in the winter, you’re going to want a good pair of gloves.

Fingerless gloves can be good for fishing and other outdoors activities that require you to use your fingertips, but if you’re looking for gloves to keep your digits warm while exercising, or for other activities that don’t require you to be as precise with your fingertips, Under Armour’s ColdGear gloves are a must have.

Jackets and Fleece

Sticking with the keeping warm theme, make sure the kids are bundled up right so your next outdoor adventure isn’t a frigid fiasco.

One of our favorite children’s jackets this year is the Under Armour Captivate Cold-Activated Hoodie, an ultra-lightweight jacket that’s actually cold-activated and changes colors and graphics in the winter conditions.

How cool is that?

For those who want a light layer for their next workout, sweatshirts and fleece are a good alternative.

Mo’s has countless options for fleece hoodies, including the Adidas Climawarm, Under Armour tech fleece and a nice selection of team branded fleece tops.

Stocking Stuffers

If there’s one thing we love more than sporty stocking stuffers, its zombies. That’s right, we said zombies.

So what do sports and zombies have in common? Well, Mo’s has what might just be the most unique $5 stuffer of the holiday season, a collection of NFL football zombies. These creepy dudes look like your favorite NFL garden gnomes, only zombified – clearly having lost a backyard game against the wrong group of creatures.

Plus this particular New York Giants Zombie looks a lot like Eli Manning after taking all of those hits early in the season.

If zombies aren’t your thing, there are a ton of other stocking stuffers in the $5 price range, including team branded earbuds, drawstring backpacks  and umbrellas.

Electronics

If you’re looking for team-inspired tech gear, Mo’s also has iPhone Accessories branded with your favorite pro teams.

And for the rest of the gadget geeks out there, we have a plethora of watches, counters, pedometers and other electronics to help keep track of and plot out your workouts.

Some of our favorite devices this year include the Timex Ironman 30-Lap Sports Watch and the Polar RS300X Heart Rate Monitor.

After all, with all of those zombies out there, you’re going to need a good heart rate monitor, and you’ll definitely have to train like an Ironman if you want to survive to the New Year.

Good luck with your holiday shopping this season.  Happy Holidays from our team to yours!
