On My List... 19

Check out what four locals have on their gift-giving lists this year

John and Brigid Hornacek

John and Brigid Hornacek met five years ago, marrying in March 2016. Between the two of them, they own four businesses: two Hornacek’s House of Golf stores (one in Scottsdale and one in Chandler), one men’s clothing store, and a blow dry bar called Primp and Blow in Paradise Valley. They also have three dogs and two cats. Says the couple: “We opened in Chandler because there was a void for a good golf store and men’s apparel store. We LOVE Chandler and Gilbert—Brigid was born here, and John moved here in 1992 from suburbs of Chicago.”

On our gift-giving list this year:

PXG hat, New Era, a great gift for the golfer; $40.

PXG cart bag (the best bag made for the golfer who has everything); $450. 

Mizzen and Main dress shirt, performance dress shirts (stretch, no iron, no steaming, no dry cleaning) that are great for travel; $125.

GG blue women’s golf outfit, great clothing for the women who wants style and performance; $85 shirt, $95 skirt.
