Philips SmartSleep Snoring Relief Band
If he’s constantly researching the best sleep products to help him fall asleep faster (and stay asleep), he’ll be excited to try the gift you’re secretly sharing—the Philips SmartSleep Snoring Relief Band. The band’s integrated sensor detects back-focused sleep and lightly vibrates the abdomen of the wearer to remind him to roll to his side and stop snoring.

He’ll dress these classic flat-front Vineyard Vines Performance Breaker Pants up with a tucked-in button-down or wear them more casually with a pullover and kicks.

Here’s what to get your brother for Christmas.
Art of Sport Shower Collection
He’ll be excited to use a new Art of Sport Shower Collection instead of that floral-scented stuff he’s more typically swiping in the shower or the moisture-stripping stuff in the gym locker room.
