Do you have a high school or college age son? Do you remember his first pair of big boy underwear? When our boys mastered the “stand and shoot” stance around the big boy potty, it was a huge milestone at our house. We celebrated with a trip to Target to buy Sponge Bob underwear. And in a blink of an eye, my boys traded Blue Clues briefs for the candy cane and flip-flop print boxers.
That is how I measure the stages of my boys; in underwear.
I forgot about Spiderman and Dragon Tails underwear until Tommy John reached out to me. I jumped at the chance to include a pair of Tommy John Go-Anywhere Boxer Brief in a college care package for my son. #mylefty
Thinking of his quizzical smile when he found a pair of boxer briefs in his care package was why I was excited to talk about this popular underwear brand.
Underwear was a practical item to include in his first care package for the new school year.
I smiled knowing I would get a phone call (text) about his college’s team color boxer briefs I chose from the Tommy John website.
Sidenote: The TJ brand coincidentally includes the names of two HUGE rival schools in the St. Paul/ Minneapolis area. #tommies #johnnies.
I ordered my son this pair of boxer briefs in Blackberry Cordial to match his college and tennis team uniform colors! #tommies
Okay, I admit, its difficult to find a picture of boxer briefs without blushing. That’s what happened when I Googled Tommy John underwear images.
And, Tommy John’s promise of a ” no wedgie guarantee” will make for a funny, slightly awkward conversation with my son. Of course, I could ask my son if he noticed the horizontal Quick Draw® fly for quick .. um… left-hand-friendly access? Who knew this was an issue? Tommy John knew.
Not to mention, the irony of ordering boxer briefs for an um… care package. #toomuchinformationmom #stopitmom
TMy son’s new boxer briefs will likely be a funny conversations during Thanksgiving dinner with grandma.
Moving past the cheeky puns, my Tommy John delivery included something for me and my husband.
Tommy John does not just sell underwear.
These Dotted Pinstripe Stay-Up Socks were a hit with my husband. His schedule has him in and out of investor meetings and conference calls every day. These Stay Up Socks did their job.
I loved this Cool-Cotton Stay Tucked Camisole for me. Tommy John’s camisoles offer the convertible hook for flexibility for racerback tops. I ordered an xs because I prefer a snugger fit under bulky sweaters.
Winter is coming to Colorado.
When I shipped my son’s care package, I included a few other things and a note explaining why I sent him Blackberry boxer briefs. #momsplaining
He called me on his way to class to thank me for the care package. He loved the Tommy John boxer briefs. It turns out he had not done laundry and appreciated the brief grace period to wash a load of laundry.
Tommy John would make a great gift under the tree or fun stocking stuffers.
Care packages are a fun surprise for our college-age kids, family members, and grandparents. I had a great time discovering the Tommy John brand and learning about the founders and a popular celebrity investor. Its a brand I can get behind! #wink
Care Package Party
Want to host a fun party? I shared a care package party I attended with moms when my daughter left for college.
The party is simple; it starts with a USPS Priority Box and wine (in a box).
