Of course I had to include a Christmas Gift Guide for Him after doing one for Her. I also have a Gift Guide for Kids . These gift guides are a lot of work, but I love doing them and sharing my personal picks for you all. Let me know how you are like these gift guides. As I said in my last post, this year I feel it’s important to support local, more now than ever. Let’s jump right in.

  1. Sandy Vieira Avon Rep– This men’s sporty watch is a great affordable gift. It’s a great everyday watch and looks great on.

2. Treat a great Italian lunch &/or dinner from Antica Osteria, they offer dine in and take out options. A great date idea while enjoying great food and drinks. We love this restaurant.

5. Ultimate Cards– For the sports lover in your life, what a great idea to get their picture on an Ultimate Sports card with their favourite sports team. Great for men caves or desk spaces, etc.. ULTIMATE cards are the most unique and premium gift for sports fans of all ages! It’s as easy as picking your favourite sport and customizing your favourite design from their online store. Check out their Instagram for more ideas.

6.The Balanced Company– I love a good Subscription box, this Men’s Balanced Lifestyle Box is the perfect gift for him. Filled with luxury products catered specifically for men. This is a great option for the men who have everything and want nothing.

7. Marion House– Beer Opener Wall Mount- great addition to the bar or outdoor space. Love the tin that hangs to collect all those beer/bottle caps.

8. Crated Designs Barrie- My husband loves personal custom gifts from his kids. This custom wood sign is a great piece for his workspace/shop/garage. These are custom so if you prefer something different, definitely check out their Instagram page for more ideas.
