8 Things to be Thankful for this Thanksgiving

As the holiday is approaching quite fast, the festive spirit that Thanksgiving brings along includes the turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, Macy’s parade and so much more.

Are you waiting for these too??

Everyone does!!

However, there’s a lot more than just turkey or the parade. The holiday is about the first harvest celebration as well as other special aspects that you should be thinking about.

Here’s a list of 8 things that you should be thankful for this Thanksgiving.

Family

Who doesn’t want to come home to a family that sticks through the thick & thin times? Don’t you love it when you all sit together and eat food, watch movies, talk about small things? You should be thankful for your partner who’s rock strong and always there for you. Thankful for the kids who bring a smile to your face with the tiny things they do for you.

Beginning of the holiday season

Halloween has recently finished and now you’re all set for the upcoming holidays that certainly bring cheer to your face and raise the happiness. There’s Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Christmas and finally New Year. All these have their respective thrill that starts even before the day comes and lasts quite long in our hearts and minds.

Pay day

Sounds off?? It isn’t because nothing brings a broader smile on your face than when you see that text saying – “your salary has been credited to your account”. Do we even need to say anything else than just saying the above? Paydays bring happiness and you should be thankful for the same.

Gifts

Who doesn’t like gifts? Whether it is your birthday, anniversary or Thanksgiving and Christmas, gifts are always welcomed with open hearts & arms as well as a big smile. No matter what you get in there a toy, showpiece, accessory, shirt, pant, men’s underwear or anything else, a gift is a gift. There’s nothing more exciting about it.

The coming New Year

Aha!! A fresh start. Another year full of resolutions that won’t even last a month, promises to get into the shape where bikini underwear would look appealing to you and so on. But, at least the year is coming and you should be thankful for the same.

Good food

Well, you should be thanking your mothers who cook delicious food for you, but it still is a blessing for which you should be thankful. For all the pizzas, burgers, stuffed turkey, chops and everything that you love o eat – just be thankful that it’s available for you and ask for those who don’t have it.

Pets

Whether you’re a coffee & cat person or tea & dog kinds, having a pet is what keeps you happy. Be thankful for pets in your life because if they weren’t there, you would be have been lonelier and incomplete. After all, they are family and complete our lives.

Online shopping with free shipping

Who doesn’t like online shopping? Well, what hurts more is when you have to pay shipping cost. So, when the duo comes in together, it is all about being thankful for and a win-win situation.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

This year, we’ve refreshed our list of the ways to celebrate a meaningful Thanksgiving and here are the follows.

Get your family together and donate food

A family that eats together and stays together is a happy & blessed family. What you can do this year rather than eating together at the table, why not come together and feed the hungry with the home cooked food? Wouldn’t that be a satisfying experience of sharing the joy of giving and being thankful? And, most importantly, it will raise the bar of your happiness.

Love without conditions

Spend a day with your grandparents and feel the love that they have to give you. If that’s not what you can do, then visiting an old-age home would be a suitable idea if you really want to spread love and share the same with someone. Say thank you to your near & dear ones to make sure that love comes without conditions as well.

Play quiz with your family and give gifts

Be the host of a family gathering and play a quiz with them. Be the quiz-master and prepare questions for all of them. This would be a great way to give away the gifts and surprises for everyone. You can pick a gift for everyone depending on their age and relationship. From sweatshirts, Ps4, to sexy underwear for men, you can pick anything and everything for the people.

Say grace

What is a Thanksgiving celebration without saying grace? Your lavish serving on the table should be fed on after saying grace together. You would have seen Fast & the Furious series where the family always comes together to say grace before their meal, you too have to do it that way.

Try not be judgmental for a day

Have you tried “not ” doing something for a day?? If you haven’t tried doing the same, try not to be judgmental for a day. Don’t think about the good & the bad, what’s he wearing, why is wearing that and so on. Try this and you’ll feel really happy inside and there’s no better feeling than that?

Take a walk in nature’s lap

Why not witness the nature’s beauty this time? With all the beautiful colors of harvest, you can go collecting different colored leaves or twigs or anything that is worthy to be picked on the Thanksgiving Day.

What to Pack for Your Beach Holiday?

What to Pack for Your Beach Holiday | Skiviez

Finally, summers are arriving and so is the chance to hit the beaches for your vacation. If we’re on the same track, you must have made all the bookings and the excitement would be soaring high. Have you prepared the checklist of what you’ll be carrying? Packing is probably the tackiest thing and the most crucial as well because the dreaded tasks need a lot of attention. You miss out on something and you’ll regret it throughout the holiday as well as after coming back from there.

Turning the spotlight on the packing tips for your next beach holiday in this blog, we don’t want your vacation to go in hunting for the substitutes that you’ve forgotten at home.

Sunscreen

This is your best friend for the entire time to stay out in the sun. Getting tan would definitely be up on your list but tanning overdone would lead to a lot of skin problems and you wouldn’t want that for sure. An SPF 50+ would be an ideal option or you can also consult a dermatologist in order to be sure of what to choose.

Comfortable outfits

Beaches are all about relaxing and getting the best of time. Wearing comfortable clothes that are breathable and loose would surely be an ideal choice. Lightweight fabrics are advantageous because they’ll keep you feeling comfortable as well as will be helpful in avoiding excessive baggage.

Men’s swimwear

You cannot do without having men’s swimwear heading for a beach vacation. Unless you’ll be just sitting on the laid back chairs and sipping on the beer as well as getting tanned in your g-string underwear, your swimwear styles are quite important. Choose from the various styles that match your taste of coverage and support. Make sure you keep in mind the ways to prevent chafing from happening because it’ll turn your holiday sour.

Hats

My brother went for a vacation last year and wasn’t carrying a hat with him. With so much of heat and sun rays, he had to buy it there. Choose a Fedora hat that looks exceptionally good on you and includes it in the bag. Choose light shades!

Sunglasses

DO NOT go for the cheaper options that are only showy but aren’t good for UV protection. Invest in a good pair of sunglasses that’ll be your savior from harsh rays as well as prevent your eyes from going red because of the heat. Hence, spend wisely on shades.

First-aid kit

A must have for every trip you take, the first-aid kit is beneficial for the time when you hurt yourself while playing volleyball or indulging in any water activity.

Flip flops

Do not opt for formal shoes or sports shoes when the beach calls. Instead, you must carry lightweight flip flops that’ll be comfortable and easy for you to walk in longer distances at the beach.

All you must Know about Thanksgiving Day

All you must Know about Thanksgiving Day | Skiviez

In the last blog, we laid down the ideas of how you can celebrate Thanksgiving Day 2016. However, having ample knowledge of the day is what is important before celebrating it. Hence, that’s exactly we’ll be talking about here.

Looking forward to the actual meaning of Thanksgiving Day, this blog would lay out its basic meaning.

Being celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November (falling on 24th this year), it marks the official start of the holiday season of the year. The holiday is celebrated by the young and the old with full enthusiasm and zest in many ways, this day is about being together with your family and friends.

If you look back in the history, you’d find that it all started when the Pilgrims celebrated after their first harvest in the New World, which is America at the present time. If you didn’t know, this being an American-centric holiday, even Canadians celebrate it on a different day.

Turkey is the center of attraction
If you didn’t know, one of the theory states that Queen Elizabeth was having Goose for dinner when the news came that the fleet of Spanish ships sunk while they were coming to attack England. Hence, she ordered for another goose in order to celebrate the defeat. There are other stories too but this is the most prominent one among them.

Hence, if you are celebrating the Thanksgiving Day, make sure you have a cooked (roasted, grilled or fried) Turkey on the table for the family and friends. In addition, other dishes are also important because the only turkey won’t do.

Other food items necessary at the table
Without turkey, your Thanksgiving Day would not be Thanksgiving  but without the other dishes, the celebration would be incomplete. Some of the must-haves on the table are- cornbread stuffing, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and apple pie with a giant scoop of vanilla ice cream to top it all off and an all-time favorite Pumpkin Pie.

Christmas songs are an integral part
As it was mentioned above, Thanksgiving is the official start of the festivities that finishes on Christmas, you’d find families playing Christmas carols and hymns when they sit together to share food with each other.

Sharing is an essential
Once the food is done, you can spend time being grateful for your blessings and all that you have. You exchange gifts with your loved ones and make sure that the sharing is extended outside as well. You can check out ways to share your love with the others, find out how here. Be happy and thankful for everything you have including your family, friends, and other blessings.

Come, celebrate Thanksgiving with Skiviez this year and gift your man a pair of male underwear style to spread awareness about intimate health.
