Holiday Gifts: Bieber fever
My husband is getting clothes … because he needs help. I’m asking for spa gift certificates because I’m going to go anyway and it makes it easy on them.
SVP/GM of sports operations
I’d like to receive the smallest, fastest, most reliable hotspot device possible, so I can stay connected 25 hours a day on the road and because I still don’t like typing on an iPad. Would also like to receive the commemorative DVD of N.C. State’s surprising run to the 2012 Final Four … would settle for the book if needed.

Chief marketing officer
Giving: Clothes, jewelry and iGadgets for the 4 women in my life (wife and three daughters). We’re also planning on a ski trip over the holidays to The Canyons in Park City, Utah.

As for giving, after I read the book, I’ll “re-gift it” to MadAve partner Joe Tacopina and give my old putter to Ed Horne, another MadAve partner, because it could only help his golf game.
Deep Alliance Marketing

|The Kindle Touch (above) and Jawbone Jambox (below) are on lists this year.
Obviously I am an Apple fan and just recently got a new iPhone 4S and an iPad 2, so I am not asking my family for any gifts, though I am hoping for some wonderful handmade Christmas gifts from my kids. That said, Santa may be bringing our family the Wii game “WipeOut,” and I do look forward to some friendly competition in our house on Christmas Day.

What I’d like to receive: I’m an avid reader, and “Matterhorn,” by Karl Marlantes, is on my list. For music, I’d love to receive the “Alligator Christmas Collection” or anything by Van Morrison or Al Green. For skiing, I’m interested in the Suunto Core Altimeter Watch from Backcountry.com.
