Blogmas Day 17: The Boy’s Gift Guide


This is the hard one. For all of those reading these gift guides and following along with my blog and musings, I assume that the makeup shopping actually comes quite easily to you. But the gifts for guys is where I struggle each and every year and for every gifting holiday. So here I go, I’ll try my best.

Video games are always an easy category to go for. Not all guys like video games, and video games are not guy specific, but I know Corey likes them so it’s my safe “go to” when it comes to Christmas and Birthdays. Videos games themselves are always on the pricey side in my opinion, but check out some online deals or sales. They may be last year’s games, but they’re still fun, right? I took advantage of some Black Friday deals this year to pick up a few. Theres such a great mix from the shooting games to sports. And things in between that even I like to play!

When it comes to video games the category can be expanded to accessories too. Take a look at some limited edition controllers or other attachments for the console. I even splurged on great noise cancelling  headphones that work for both consoles and computers. They’re the Kingston HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headphones and they’re available at Canada Computers of on Amazon. Amazing audio quality and voice options as well.

The classic watch is always a great gift. I got Corey a watch a few Christmases ago. A beautiful silver Fossil Chronograph Stainless Steel watch. He may not wear it every day, but it really means a lot when he puts it on for special occasions. I know that means he really love it, saving it for something special. You can also give another classic guy favourite in the gift of beer. Corey and I are really in to some of Toronto’s own craft beer and breweries such as Steamwhistle. Not only do they have some great gift packs to be found this time of year, but you can even bring you’re loved ones and friends by the brewery for a tour! It’s great fun in the heart of Toronto.

And finally, if you insist of delving into the realm of male beauty products, then my pick would be Kiehl’s. Kiehl’s has amazing products for both men and women. I’ve gifted a few products of theirs in the past and Corey, along with other relatives and friends, absolutely adore them! I’d go with the fan favourite of Facial Fuel which is a perfect moisturizer for the cold winter months. You can see Corey’s review of it here.

What do you have on your list for the men in your life this Christmas?
