It was a lot harder than I thought it would be to compile a guift guide for the guys, as it always has been. I took to social media and reached out for advice and suggestions from others and got some fantastic feedback! Hopefuly I'll be able to compile future lists on my own as now I have a slight idea of what guys prefer. So sit back and enjoy my curated gift guide for presents in the $500+ range.
1. Nikon D5200 - Nikon | $699.95
For the artistic side in your man, a introductory level camera is great for him to test out photography and still get stunning shots but not be stuck with a too expensive commitment if he decides that it's not the thing for him. This camera can still be used to shoot gorgeous everyday photos when you vacation, or just for the pure fun of it. And if he continues to pursue photography, it'll open windows into other more advanced cameras once he's gotten the hang of this one.
2. Front Row Tickets - His Favourite Sport | Relative
I fully believe in spoiling your man to his favourite interests. It was hard for me to pick just one sport as there are so many out there and many guys enjoy more than just one. So I just went with my S/O's favourite, the NBA. If you want to splurge, get him tickets for his favourite team playing against his favourite opponent, and if it's out of town, cover the travel and living expenses as well! If you want to keep it on the more affordable side, wait till his favourite team is playing a game in your city to save on some cash.
3. Flatbush Top Coat - John Varvatos (Nordstrom) | $652.49
In congruence with my last post, a good winter jacket is necessary to survive a Canadian winter. However you never want the jacket to swallow you and turn a fashionably planned outfit into a winter marshmellow. Many of my colleagues are currently on the hunt for the perfect career, and first impressions can make or break the interview. In order to keep with the professionally chic look, an over coat is the way to go. With a coat like this, you'll never have to question the balance between warmth and style.
4. Duffel Travel Bag - Lotuff Leather (EastDane) | $ 1,140.34
As I always like to say, "Travel in Style". This luxurious leather travel bag is the essence of my motto. Big enough to act as a weekender for a quick trip to another city to shop, or perfect for a week long excursion out of town to sight see. My biggest pet peeve is having to walk through public places pulling a clunky luggage case or gym bag. Especially if you're travelling professionally. Any leather travel bag can easily replace your current one and up the ante a little bit.
5. 13" Macbook Air - Apple | $1099
As a blogger, digital editing is a huge part of what I do and the Retina screen of Apple products is perfect to visualize every single pixel in full HD color. I'm a bigger fan of 15.5" screens, however because this size is the largest that Apple offers, it'll have to do. Why not a desktop you ask? I like to have my computer on the go with me so that I can work on my blog from anywhere, be it at the airport, at school, at a friend's house or at the coffee shop. Being a student also means carrying other things amongst your laptop in your bag, so the Air is perfect since it is so light.
