Looking for that perfect gift for the man in your life? Whether it be father, brother, boyfriend, husband or good friend, we’ve got some ideas that’ll fit perfect under the tree.

For the fashion forward man

Kit and Ace

Kit and Ace: Layer Mayne Tee $84

Is it expensive for a tee? Yes, but honestly the quality reflects the cost. Where else are you going to get a t-shirt made of cashmere that you can throw in the wash without worry? The classic black tee is great for work and play.

For the sophisticated man


Broquet: Gift sets for men range from $34-$127

For the man who values quality craftsmanship, a Broquet gift set is sure to please. There are a range of options from personal grooming kits, mixology sets and outdoor survival to choose from. I personally dig the Old Fashioned cocktail set.

For the craft beer enthusiast

Greff Growler

Greff growler: Greff growler carrier $75

These locally handmade growler carriers are the real deal. I personally own one and can vouch for their quality and all around awesomeness. Carriers fit standard 64oz bottles and feature felted wool to insulate, water repellent canvas for durability, and top grain veg tan leather for strength and comfort.

For the TV junkie


Google Chromecast $39

Time to end your relationship with the cable companies. There are a number of different media streaming options on the market right now (Amazon fire, Google, Roku, Apple TV) but for dollar value, the Chromecast comes in under $40 and gives you a great start to moving all your TV habits online.

For the pseudo nerd

Loot Box

Loot Crate: Monthly subscriptions from $27

It’s the gift that keeps on giving. Every month a curated box of nerd friendly memorabilia arrives at your door. One month can be dedicated to Game of Thrones, while the next is Ghostbusters themed. Like a nerd Christmas all year round.

For the amateur photographer


GoPro: GoPro HERO $129.99

GoPro is dominating the market for action cameras, and at a great price point, the HERO is the perfect way to get into the GoPro family. The HERO features 1080p30 and 720p60 video, 5MP photos up to 5 frames per second, QuikCapture, SuperView and Auto Low Light. It’s also waterproof to 131’ (40m).

For the outdoorsman


Lifestraw $20

For only $20 you can give the outdoorsman the gift of safe drinking water. Originally designed for emergency scenarios, The Lifestraw can filter up to 1,000 liters of contaminated water into safe drinking water. It filters out 99.99% of bacteria, meaning this pocket sized accessory could literally save your life.

For the travel addict

travel journal

Bucket list journal $29

Every travel addict has a bucket list. Whether it’s rock climbing at Railay beach, or lounging in a Tuscan villa these handcrafted journals keep track of all your travel dreams. With leather binding, and a collection of maps, it’s a stylish way to keep tabs on what to do next.

For the home chef

Vancouver Island Salt

Vancouver Island Salt $7 for 200 grams

The home chef is going to love these quality sea salts from Vancouver Island. Just this past year, the small company won $100,000 as the most innovative small business in Canada.

For the hard to buy for


Mophie Juice Pack $79.98

What’s one thing pretty much all of us have in common? Crappy battery life on all of our electronics. With this portable battery pack, there’s no excuse for your phone, tablet, laptop, camera, whatever to die during the day.
