What does one give the guy who has it all? We know how hard it can be to shop for the fellas, and while the gift guides spout the best gifts for men are leather and whiskey and stylish shoes, we think there’s more to gifting the guys in your life than the standard fashionable fare.
Technology, ties, and alcohol aside, we’ve put together a little gift guide with simple ideas for the guys in your life that are a little bit different, a little bit useful, and gifts that we think he’ll love and want to use time and time again.
His first year of university or the first time he’s living on your own, a bachelor pad doesn’t have to smell like one (especially if he’s contemplating entertaining a pretty lady) and he may need a little aroma therapy. Forget tacky incense and overpowering scented candles, what he needs is Lampe Berger to keep the funk of his gym gear and stale pizza at bay. The starter kit is a gift he’d never consider giving himself. It’s simple, unassuming, and will easily blend in with a young mans eclectic decor
The New Dad
When it comes to gifting, the new dad is often overlooked – he tends to wait in the wings while mom and baby are showered with lots of love and affection. This holiday, you can give credit where credit is due and show the new dad that you’re thinking of him too, with a little trinket or frame that he can keep on his desk to remind him of his family while he works.
The Sports Fan
Does your fella have a soft spot for the Maple Leafs? From ML themed ornaments to official bling, we’ve got the gear the die-hard fan will go gaga for.
The Guy Who Loves Precious Metals
Speaking of bling, if the guy in your life loves to adorn himself with a little silver or gold, a new ring, bracelet or necklace, personalized with his name or initials, is a great option this holiday.
The Tool Man
A man who loves tools can be a hard man to shop for – like kids in a candy shop, every visit to the hardware store means a new toy finds its way into his already crowded workshop. While you may be hesitant to add to his ever growing collection, the Leatherman New Wave multi-tool is a powerful little product that will render his portable tool kit useless. Find it, and cool tools like it, at Home Depot.
