Boyfriend Gift Guide For Any Occasion

We hear you: Gift shopping for a guy, your guy, old guy, new guy, any guy, is TOUGH! But, lucky for us we live in the internet age of limitless access to amazing websites– that sometimes even ship to Canada.

Three things to keep in mind when shopping for guys: unique, thoughtful and personal. Notice we didn’t say expensive? Behold, an amazingly iPad-free gift list!

IF – He’s a jock (armchair or otherwise)
Paul Bissonnette’s @BizNasty2point0's loyal Twitter followers love his irreverent take on life in the NHL, and we love the surprisingly stylish T’s and hoodies from his new clothing line.

Available at saucehockey.com, from $27.99.

IF – He needs a style boost but hates trends
RayBan Wayfarer: The shades of choice for cool confident 80’s-era Tom Cruise, Jack Kerouac, Bob Dylan, and the Blues Brothers. End of argument.

Available at sunglasshut.com, from $115. 

IF – He’s literate and doesn’t care who knows it
The Walrus: Packed with funny, timely articles about politics and culture, plus great interviews and it comes every month

A one-year subscription is available at walrusmagazine.com, $29.

IF – He’s a new dad but his sense of humour is still intact
Go the Fuck to Sleep by Adam Mansbach. This book that perfectly describes the frustration that every parent feels coaxing their child(ren) to sleep. Laugh-out-loud, tongue-in-cheek awesomeness.

Available at chapters.indigo.com, from $16.95. 

IF – He wishes he worked at Sterling, Cooper, Draper, Pryce  
Nothing (besides Betty) makes Don angrier than watery Canadian Club. When frozen, these reusable whiskey stones will keep his drink cool without altering that smooth, smoky flavour.

A set of 9 is available at murrons.com, $24.95.

    Thanks Sarah! Hope the whisky rocks work out, in the meantime I’ll keep Mr Zombie-obsessed in mind for our next gift guide 🙂

    Love this list of ideas! Early in our relationship, I always felt like gifts for the significant other had to be elaborate (read: expensive) in order to mean something. These days, with a mortgage, car payments, student loans, etc, etc, it’s not quite as feasible to go all out for every occasion. These ideas are great, affordable gifts that show you actually thought about his interests when you were buying. Although, I’m not sure what it says about my husband that several of his latest gifts from me involved zombies. Maybe I should buy him the Whisky Rocks instead next time and hope the sophistication rubs off.
