The Best Gift For A Best Friend

@christianconfidential

The holiday season is officially in full swing which means the countdown to picking up something special for your loved ones is on. For me, I take shopping for presents very seriously. I always try to find ways to not only give my friends gifts that they want but that also puts a huge smile on their faces. This year I’ve teamed up with Best Buy Canada to find the best gift for one of  my best friends, Shayna.

Shayna and I have been friends for as long as I can remember and have shared many memories together. This year I wanted to get her a gift that she’d not only love but something that also highlighted significant moments in our friendship. After spending some time in Best Buy, I came across this cool portable photo printer called the HP Sprocket, that I knew she’d love!

The HP Sprocket is a portable photo printer that’s super easy to use, prints images and stickers instantly and has a clean minimal design. It’s also super light in weight and allows you to print via bluetooth directly from your iPhone.

One of the things that Shayna and I love to do together is travel.  I decided to print a bunch of our favourite photos from our past trips (New York, Miami, West Palm Beach, Paris) and create a photo album for her to have with the Sprocket.

The thing that I love about Best Buy , especially when it comes to holiday shopping is that you can go in looking to find a gift for one person and end up leaving with something for everyone on your list (like the new Fitbit Ionic Watch for your athletic friend)!  Best Buy makes it super easy by having knowledgeable staff in each department and carrying a wide variety of electronics and premium tech gadgets!

If you’ve still got a few people to check off your list, I’d suggest making  a stop at your local Best Buy store or even better you can shop online here.

Good luck guys and happy holidays!

Christian Confidential's Gift Guide For Men | Holiday Shopping Made Easy

For many of us, the holiday season can be one of the most hectic times of the year. With all of the decorating, holiday parties, birthdays and work deadlines, you really don’t have that much time left to do all of your holiday shopping. I’ve decided to try and make your shopping task a little easier (at least when it comes to the special men in your life) by putting together what I consider a pretty dope gift guide!Christian Confidential's Gift Guide For Men | Holiday Shopping Made Easy

1. Nike Air Max 90 Ice – Sneaker Boot $160.00

A great alternative to the standard winter boot that some guys unfortunately still wear. The Air Max 90 sneaker boot is perfect for the young guy living downtown that still wants the style and comfort of his favourite sneaker while being able to stay warm and dry at the same time. They also have great traction and come in four different colorways for you to choose from.

2. Tiffany Somerset Ring $345.00

If he’s a guy that’s into jewellery, you can’t go wrong with this sterling silver ring from Tiffany’s Somerset collection. A great alternative to the classic mens ring that will instantly grab the attention of others making it a conversation piece.Christian Confidential's Gift Guide For Men | Holiday Shopping Made Easy

3. Givenchy Rottweiler Iphone 5(s) Hardcover Case $102.00

If he’s into making a statement with his iphone accessories, he will love the Rottweiler print case from Givenchy. This is a great accessory for the fashion forward guy that likes to keep it simple but stand out at the same time.

4. Rimowa Classic Flight Cabin Trolley IATA $769.00

This item on the gift guide is for the man in your life that’s always on the go. Whether it be for business or pleasure the Classic Flight Cabin Trolley from Rimowa is the perfect piece of luggage for short trips. Beautiful, reputable and built to last – this is a great start to traveling in style.Christian Confidential's Gift Guide For Men | Holiday Shopping Made Easy

5. Noble Leather – Yves Saint Laurent $230.00

Another one of my favourite scents from Yves Saint Laurent is, Noble Leather. Sometimes difficult to find and at a slightly higher price point than your standard cologne. If you’re looking for a scent that’s masculine but not overbearing and will set you apart from the crowd this is a pretty safe bet.

6. Talbot Shearling Leather Coat – All Saints $1448.00

It wouldn’t feel right completing a gift guide without including a leather jacket. This Shearling black leather jacket from All Saints is something worth drooling over. It’s edgy, it will keep you warm and priced pretty reasonably for the quality and material. It’s definitely an item worth looking at for the fashion risk taker on your shopping list.

7. Veuve Clicquot – Champagne $68.00

I see suggestion number 7 as the ‘safe’ yet ‘special’ gift to give not only over the holidays, but anytime of the year. Even if he’s not the biggest champagne enthusiast there will always be an occasion worth celebrating that will only seem complete with a bottle of Veuve.

8. Raf Simons High Top Sneakers $659.00

If he’s a sneakerhead he would love to find these bad boys underneath the tree. Black high top leather sneakers with velcro straps give these kicks a little edge over the competition. Rock these with a pair of joggers and an oversized sweatshirt and you’ve got yourself a dope look.

I hope that this list  provided you with a few cool gift ideas to help check off some of the important men in your life!
