Hi everybody, it's that time of the year again. When you circle the parking lot for an hour, get stuck in line ups and spend a lot of cash (hopefully not too much). This year I've teamed up with Syed from The Prep Guy to do a complete gift guide for you. We've got booze, gadgets, watches, clothes, anything you could ever want from St. Nick. Whether you're looking for suggestions for yourself or for your loved ones I'm sure you'll get a few ideas from these guides.
Living in Canada you've gotta have some good boots. These bad boys from Converse have a neoprene liner for warmth and comfort - and they're waterproof. These are a must buy for any Canadian.
These completely cable-free headphones from Samsung not only play your music, but double as a reliable fitness tracker. They also happen to charge themselves in the sleek included with them. They have three different ear sizes to ensure a snug fit. In ambient sound mode they pass through noises to keep you aware of your surroundings in busy areas. Perfect for the athlete or those on-the-go types on your list.
Everyone has someone on their list with a sweet tooth and rather than the obvious chocolates (as you do every other year), why don't you pick them up some artisanal candy and cookies from Sugarfina?! This set includes: Gingerbread Cookie Bites, Candy Cane Caramels, Pumpkin Pie Caramels, Sugar Cookies, Gingerbread Men, Peppermint Malt Balls, Chocolate Berry Basket and Champagne Bubbles. Sweet!
This watch from MVMT has all the cool of a classic diver watch without all of the price. You could get every watch in MVMT's collection for the price of a Tudor. This watch also has interchangeable straps talking you from the dive-site to the party in no time. You can also get $10 off by using "theposhman" at checkout.
You'll be going to lots of Christmas parties this holiday season and will no doubt need a wine to bring with you (don't want to show up empty-handed). This Cabernet Sauvignon from Robert Mondavi was aged in Bourbon barrels to give it a bold flavour that is sure to be a hit.
If you've ever thought you couldn't afford nice frames you have checkout out Smart Buy Glasses. These beautiful spectacles start at $270 with lenses! You shouldn't be spending $600+ on glasses anymore. Buy someone on your list the glasses they've always wanted.
This slim fit parka from Canada Goose is a staple in my winter wardrobe. The slim cut looks great over a suit or sweater and really protects you from the elements. It's rated to -25 C and the longer length will keep your thighs and butt warm. The pockets are also fleece lined to keep your hands warm. In Canada there is no compromise for a warm winter jacket, you absolutely need one and this is the one you need.
For the one who has everything, gift this Single Malt by Highland Park. This scotch has great flavour and is a gift-worthy bottle that comes in under $100. Pick up some whisky stones and you've got a gift for Santa's sleigh.
If there is one thing I preach, it's keeping your skin healthy and hydrated. Not enough guys remember to take care of their skin. This gift kit includes all the essentials: face wash, moisturizer, a scrubbing bar, hand lotion, and shave lotion to keep your skin healthy this season.
Everyone needs a nice watch and this one from Brathwait is no slouch. No need to replace batteries in this automatic beauty. The straps are interchangeable, it's water resistant to 100m and has sapphire glass for scratch resistance. This piece will be sure to please anyone on your list.
Is your girlfriend always cold? Are you constantly fighting with her over the thermostat? The Dyson Pure Hot + Cool will keep her warm in the winter and you cool in the summer (but you can give it to her for Christmas). Added bonus, it also purifies the air which is pretty neat.
Got an adventurous type on your list? GoPro HERO5 Black is the most powerful and easy-to-use GoPro ever, thanks to its 4K video, voice control, one-button simplicity, touch display and waterproof design. Smooth stabilized video, crystal-clear audio and pro-quality photo capture combine with GPS to make HERO5 Black simply the best GoPro. And when it’s time to edit and share, HERO5 Black automatically uploads footage to your GoPro Plus cloud account to provide easy access on your phone. You can also create amazing videos automatically with Quick™, the GoPro editing app.
