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!

The Last Minute Shopper | Gift Guide for Men



I feel that with every passing year the Holidays becoming more hectic – more about the hustle, bustle & business of work & family obligations and less about time spent with friends & loved ones.  In an effort to help you cut down on your to-do list (and free up time for things you’d rather be doing) please take these tips and avoid as much unnecessary browsing as possible – with less than a week to go until the big day, it’s not likely you’ll have the time to spare!

Brown liquors have always been a Holiday favourite, and while a nice single malt may be appropriate for the more formal relations on your list, bourbon is definitely all the rage this year.  Like anything in life, there’s the kind of bourbon you can get for $3 a shot at your local dive bar and then there’s Woodford Reserve’s Master’s Collection.  Delicious & beautifully packaged, this elegant libation is a memorable & on-trend conversation starter.  – $129.95

The Right Gift Card:  As someone who’d like to move past the Christmas tradition of fake smiles & long returns lines, please consider the gift of choice this Holiday season.  No longer just for the extreme procrastinator, gift cards give you the freedom of knowing it’s always the right size.  My personal favourite: Shopping Centre gift cards which are valuable at multiple retailers.  With Boxing Day right around the corner, it’s not like they’ll need an excuse to go to the mall.
