“This is a piece that is special to me,” says Nelson, “and that’s what I think a jersey should be, it reminds you of something. And this jersey, signed by my former teammate Eric Decker, reminds me of a time of my life I got to share with some of my favorite people.” The authentic New York Jets jersey features Decker’s name across the back and his team number with his signature.
Great for topping off a gym look, a trip to the mall or just chilling at home, this cozy hoodie is one of Nelson’s faves. “No matter what I’m looking to do, this is perfect,” he says. The therma fabric and adjustable hood make sure they’ll stay cozy.
These joggers are “the best of both worlds: stylish and comfortable” says Nelson. Available in five colors, these elevated athleisure pants have a roomy fit and four way stretch, so he’ll be comfy all day.
“If you’re looking to up your street cred to another level, you gotta get anything Supreme,” raves Nelson. This white hoodie is embroidered with the iconic Supreme logo in bright green, and has a front pocket to keep hands warm while running errands or running on a field.
“Every athlete needs a good pair of kicks in their collection, and these are my favorites,” Nelson explains. Any sports loving sneakerhead would love to find these under the tree, including the former footballer’s bright green Yeezys pick that are “guaranteed to turn heads wherever you go.”
While there are a lot of smart watches on the market, Nelson chose this one as his favorite.“What’s cool about this is it has all the workout tracking features you’d expect from a smart watch,” he notes, “but it’s also super lightweight, and let’s be honest, looks really good.” Available in eight colors, the Instinct has heart rate tracking and a compass as well.
With this portable bottle your hydrated homies will never worry about germs, and will always have a drink handy. “What’s unique about this is it filters your water and it cleans itself. Yes, it cleans itself!” says Nelson.
No one wants to show up to watch the big game empty handed! Probably the coolest cooler on the market, it’s no surprise the Yeti Hopper made Nelson’s list. “It’s light, portable and has a leak proof zipper to keep your car dry and your drinks cool,” he says.
