Now that you’ve made your own wish list and checked it twice (using the gift guide for her obviously), it’s time to start thinking about your man! Whether that man is your hubby, your SO, your dad or your bro, I’ve got a little something queued up for every guy. And who better to ask for those covetable manly items than my very own hubby Gary!? While not every man will have the same wish list as Gary’s, this is a great place to start getting those ideas flowing and draft up your list for him.
It can be a bit of an uphill battle getting your man to replace a piece of clothing that’s past its expiration date. Christmas is a great opportunity to upgrade his wardrobe and style game, even if he’s got it figured out all on his own. Because everything needs a woman’s touch now and then right!? From stocking stuffers (think socks & briefs) to standout pieces, your man is sure to appreciate some new digs come Christmas morning.
Some gifts are just FUN to give. It’s those unexpected items that somebody might not have bought for themselves that always make for the best conversation starters at Christmas dinner. One of my favourites is the deep fryer from Breville… the possibilities are endless! And one more thing… can I request deep fried cauliflower every night as a token of gratitude for gifting it?!
Everybody has their own definition of self-care. My definition is simple: take care of yourself! And while you’re at it – make sure all your favourite guys are taking care of themselves too. Men face all the same woes as we do when it comes to self-care. Winter dehydration and holiday exhaustion, inopportune breakouts and muscle aching. With these self-care picks, help him combat the winter blues and be his best self!

Gary is a big sports guy, so sport themed gifts are always on heavy rotation in my household. His most frequented wish list category was golf-related which I think was a pointed hint as to what he’d like to see under the tree this year… Whether you have a golfer, hockey fan, or a workout enthusiast in your life, sporting gifts can be amazingly personal and so special with the right listening skills.
Gary and I are always on the go. Sometimes it feels like we’re never in one place for long! Our son Pierce is already a certified jet-setter and he hasn’t even turned 1!!! That being said, having the right travel gear makes all the difference and is such a great item to gift. Whether it’s a big-ticket item like a suitcase or something small like a toiletry bag – the travel bug in your life will be so excited to upgrade their set-up!

Well now that you’ve got your main men all sorted out… it’s time to start having some real fun and thinking about your little ones!!! This is my favourite group to shop for. Whether it’s my own little guy or babes in my family, it’s so exciting being able to switch into mini-mode!!! There’s something about kids’ stuff I just can’t resist. Stay tuned for my gift guide for little ones!!
