Gift Ideas for Every Type of Man

Men think women are hard to shop for but the reality is shopping for guys is even harder. Broken down into 6 types gifting can be made even easier.

1. The Do-Gooder

Matt & Nat Bag

This guy loves animals and that means he doesn’t want to wear them. For him, these bags by Matt & Nat are perfect. Choose from backpack, laptop case or this one that doubles as a garment bag.


Cruelty Free Parka by Wully Outerwear

Until now it’s been hard to find outerwear that isn’t filled with duck down and coated in fox fur. Enter Wully Outerwear a Canadian brand that makes their jackets in Toronto (right down to the zippers!)  Check out their signature style The Elk.

Rather than down, Wully outerwear is filled with Primaloft Gold.


A Toronto Vs. Everybody Sweater or T-Shirt

The Toronto-based company has had one hell of a year. With a little bit of help from Blue Jays player Jose Bautista and their epic season the Toronto vs Everybody t-shirts and Toronto vs Everybody sweaters are almost always sold out– everywhere!  He’ll like this because $4 from every purchase go to breakfast for learning foundation feeding one child two meals and a snack.


2. The Jet Setter

Nebula Trainers by Geox

For the friend who’s always traveling, he needs gifts that are practical and style forward. These Geox Nebula Trainers were designed for traveling the world, perfect for any season, they naturally adapt to every movement of the foot.


Duffel Bag by Monte & Coe

A Toronto staple, Monte & Coe‘s wool duffle bag. This is the perfect weekender with just the right amount of  personal expression, practicality, quality.


An Unconstructed Blazer

The blazers from Circolo 1901 are comfort and style in one. We’ve even heard guys compare them to their favourite sweater. Get this for those long haul flights when he’ll still want to look good in first class.


Cocktail Kit by WP&Design

When he’s not in first class– But he can still drink like it. Get him a cocktail kit.


3. The Guy Who Has Everything

Stolen Riches Laces & Gotstyle Socks

This guy has everything but details are important. Up their outfit game with Stolen Riches laces and matching socks. Shop a full range of laces in store.


Jogging Set From Philip Dubuc

Montreal brand Phillip Dubuc made jogging set and he definitely doesn’t have one of these yet. Oh– yes jogging sets are back. Get the set in store.


A Bad-Ass Umbrella or Walking Stick

A little unnecessary, a little bit extra but totally bad-ass Pasotti umbrellas. They’re entirely manufactured in Italy ensuring it’s high quality and uniqueness.


 4. Mid Life Crisis Guy

To a fashion guy the Zanerobe Sureshot camo might be old news but for this guy it’s the perfect entry level pieces into street style.


Underwear from SAXX

SAXX underwear has been dubbed as life changing. It’s new innovation and technology allows breathability and room for “the boys.” Most men can’t go back once they own a pair. 


The Vintage Band Tee

Instantly relive his youth.  Vintage-inspired band tees from John Varvatos or JOAT.  Shop a bigger selection of band tee’s in store.


5. The Athlete

Fitted T-Shirt

Athletes put a lot of effort into working out so they like to show off their muscles. It makes the Hip & Bone tee the perfect present.


The Evolve Jean

The Tiger of Sweden Evolve jean has a slight drop crotch which means more room and more flexibility. A range of denim is available in store. 


The perfect pant by Buckson Slacks

Finally, a pair of slacks that fit an athlete. Fit those thighs and butt with Buckson’s Hockey Buck fit. They’re made of organic cotton with 2% spandex for comfort. Dress them up like a pair of chinos or casually like a pair of jeans.


6. The Perfectionist

Touchscreen Gloves

You probably can’t pry this guy away from his phone. With the cold weather, get him a pair of gloves that does both- keep his hands warm while he scrolls with Mujjo touchscreen gloves. Get a pair in store.


Jason Markk Shoe Cleaner

The Jason Markk holiday pack includes everything the perfectionist needs to keep their shoes fresh and clean all year round.


Swims Galoshes

Help him protect his biggest investments with Swim galoshes.  They protect leather shoes from rain, snow and most importantly- salt.

Updated Father’s Day Gift Guide – Upgrade His Favourites

Father’s day. We know it can be a daunting task to go out and hunt for that perfect present. Some fathers are easier to impress than others, so here’s a foolproof way to ensure you get the right gift. You already know what he has, so get him an update. Everyone likes the new and improved version of their favourite. It’s also a guarantee that he’ll actually use it. We’ve put together a father’s day gift guide of updated basics we know he’ll love.

1. Boxers

updated father's day gift guide: saxx

Comfort in the nether regions can always be a struggle. Saxx is the solution. It isn’t just some regular old undergarment, it’s created for ultimate comfort and allows you to move freely without restrictions. So many customers trusted us with the benefit of the doubt and purchased a pair, only to come back grabbing more. We trust your father will feel the same. They are a perfect addition to any gift.

2. Belt

updated father's day gift guide: anderson's belt

What’s something that your father probably wears every day? A belt. Sure, he wears other things every day but then you have to worry about it fitting him. Belts are pretty safe and if you go for a high-quality belt in a basic colour, he’ll wear it. Anderson’s belts are made in Italy and because of its European sizing, make sure you go up two full sizes. (So if he’s 34, get a 38). If you go for the stretch woven styles, it doesn’t need holes so sizing is easier.

3. Sweatpants/Joggers

updated father's day gift guide: sweatpants

Chances are after a long hard day at work, your dad is gonna throw on a pair of sweats and lounge. Even during his off time, he deserves the best so get him a pair of updated sweatpants. These luxe joggers are made of the softest materials that will last more than 2-3 washes.

4. Swimwear

updated father's day gift guide: swimwear

It’s summertime and your father is bound to pull out his swimwear for the beach, a vacation or a swim. We all know that sometimes our parents can be a little bit old-fashioned so it’s a bit of our responsibility to show them the ropes once in awhile. Long, oversized board shorts are out and shorter swim shorts are in. It makes you look taller and less frumpy.

5. Watch

updated father's day gift guide: watch

A good watch is a must-have for any man. It’s gone past being a quick and practical way to check the time, to being an accessory and even collectibles for some. If a watch makes a good gift for your father, we suggest Nixon. It’s got Miyota Japanese movement, stainless steel casing and each style comes in a variety of colours and constructions. It’s full of style and won’t break your bank.

Bonus Section:

For those who want to go that extra mile for dad. We’ve come up with a small list of how to take your gifts to the next level.
