Michael Strahan wears a suit six days a week, so you know he knows how to spend an occasional lazy day.

"I love those rare days when I can spend time at home in my pajamas," the Hall of Fame defensive end revealed to E! News. When he isn't anchoring ABC's Good Morning America or hosting The $100,000 Pyramid, the athlete-turned-TV-personality luxuriates in products that make for some pretty spot-on holiday gifts. Not to mention, all genders can use most of his picks. 

For instance, the Wake Up Happy author relies on a Teavana coffee tumbler to keep his first cup of coffee warm and knows better than to leave his house without a portable phone charger. Coffee drinkers? Phone users? We think you may have a few friends that fill this bill. 

While Michael proves he is practical and prepared, his other favorites display a love for just feeling comfortable and at home. And isn't that the point of the holidays?

Scroll down to see how he always stays moisturized and looks good in the cold weather.

Michael's Wishlist

From the NFL to Live! with Kelly and Michael to Good Morning America, this pro-athlete-turned-TV-personality has range—and he smells darn good, too. How do we know? The television host shared his holiday wishlist with E! News. This season, don't fret over what to gift the men in your life. With Michael's help, they can smell like English pears, too. 


"I'm in a suit six days a week for work so I love those rare days when I can spend time at home in my pajamas. But even on those cozy days, you want to look your best, so when designing my MSX Basics line, we made sure to prioritize fit and high-tech fabrics. I swear they feel like butter. Gotta stay fly even on the couch with your kids and puppy!"
