As a quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons and a father of two, Matt Ryan knows what it's like to be busy.

However, when the end of the year rolls around, the NFL player can't help but celebrate the season.  

"My favorite part about the holidays is getting to see the excitement in my sons' eyes," the TravisMathew ambassador revealed. "The holidays to me were always about spending time with family, but now as a dad, I get to experience it through a kids' lens again. Everything is new and exciting, plus it doesn't hurt getting to watch classic Christmas movies on repeat."

This sentiment can be seen in Matt's gift guide. While he included must-have clothing items and a Nespresso coffee and espresso maker, the athlete also suggested kid-friendly gift ideas such as a t-ball set or a ride-on car.

50+ Gifts for Men That He Won't Want to Return

Matt not only provided gift ideas, but he also gave a great piece of gift-giving advice to keep in mind this holiday season.

"The best advice is to give them something that they would want, but may not think of buying themselves," the quarterback explained. "You don't want to give someone a gift they can easily get for themselves, you want it to be thoughtful. Think of what their passions, hobbies or interests are and then really take the time to find something that compliments that. You never have to spend a lot of money, it's all about the time you took to think of it."
