Shopping for guys. There’s something deceptively difficult about it. Guys seem almost...too easy to please at times—give them some of their favourite sports team’s merchandise and hand them their favourite drink and they’re in their happy place.
So what to give them for Christmas? After all, it’s tied with their birthday for the biggest gift-giving day of the year, so the pressure is indeed on. Don’t worry, BROmance won’t leave you out in the cold when it comes to guys’ gift giving; here are the top ten gifts for him this Holiday Season
10) Fitness Gear
The realities of 2020 being what they are, a lot of guys have moved their workouts from the gym to home. And working out where they work and live may find them lacking in motivation.
This is where you, the gift giver extraordinaire come in.
Maybe you spruce up their workout wardrobe with some new athletic clothes, or maybe you get them some equipment conducive to working out at home (bands, dumbbells, yoga mat, new water bottle—the list is practically endless). Whatever the case, thanks to you, your guy will be ready to crush home workouts and get more jacked than ever.
9) A Smart Watch
One of the biggest technological crazes in 2020 is the smart watch, and with good reason.
For one, they can monitor your health and help you track your fitness. Taking up running? Smart watches will let you know almost every facet of your run including pace, distance, time, and, in some instances, which parts of the run you found easy or challenging.
And it’s not just running that these watches track. All your workouts are covered.
In addition to fitness, these watches act as a digital lifeline, displaying text messages, and emails, and letting you play music as well. Best part? You don’t have to sacrifice fashion for convenience. Smart watches come in a variety of eye-catching styles.
8) A Sports Subscription
Guys and their sports. It’s a tale as old as time. They’re practically inseparable it seems. Whether it’s watching Hockey Night in Canada on Saturday nights, or staying glued to the recliner for football on Sunday, men love to get their sports fix.
This year, however, it won’t be possible to stuff stockings with tickets. So why not make sure your guy never misses a moment of the action at home?
There are a number of different sports subscription services out there now that will have you covered no matter if your man likes his action in the ring, on the gridiron, or on the ice. The only problem: you may need to pry him away from the television screen.
7) A Men’s Spa Day
Don’t laugh us off before you hear us out!
The man in your life could likely use some de-stressing. So what better way to do that than a full body massage?
Then, what about a new haircut and a hot shave to help him feel fresh.
What’s great is that there are a number of places that offer all of these services all under the same roof.
So, don’t think spa days are just about getting a mani-pedi. Let your guy unwind and relax like he deserves to.
6) The Gift of Fashion
Let your fashionable side do the gift giving! The possibilities are endless. Has your guy been clinging to the same socks and underwear for too long? You can remedy that with some new pairs.
Does your man need some formal wear for a night out on the town? Why not pick him up a new blazer and pair of dress pants? Or, conversely, maybe your man needs something to relax around the house in, and a pair of comfortable sweatpants and t-shirt would be just the ticket.
Take some time and investigate lacking areas and sizes--your man will thank you come Christmas morning.
5) The Perfect Bedroom Setup
Think about it: We spend a third of our lives asleep. That’s quite a bit of time in the bedroom, and in bed (plus, word on the street is some other extracurricular activities take place there). Shouldn’t we treat ourselves to the best sleeping environment possible?
There are a plethora of options these days to ensure you get the best night’s sleep. Mattress in a box companies seem to be ubiquitous on social media, offering an amazing quality mattress for a very reasonable price. But it’s not just about the mattress. Why not get your partner a pillow that will complement the new bed. In fact, many specialty stores will do custom fittings, ensuring the mattress *and* pillow are perfectly right for your guy’s body type.
And then, to top things off, don’t forget the sheets. You’ll want to slide under the perfect set, whether they be bamboo, silk, or egyptian cotton.
With the right thinking, you can ensure your man the gift of a good night’s sleep.
4) A Little Bit of the Bubbly
Gift giving always comes with a certain element of risk. Perhaps the individual already has what you’re giving them for example. But with alcohol, that risk is negated.
So head out and pick up your man a 12-pack of his favorite brew, or a bottle of his favourite whiskey. We’ll definitely raise a glass to you.
3) Wireless Headphones
Almost all guys have experienced this scenario: they reach into their pocket and haul out their headphones. Only problem? They’re tied up like fort knox. It takes a good five minutes to get them undone--time that could have been spent on the treadmill.
Not only are wireless headphones a great alternative for the gym, they’re also super comfortable, and easy to use--they connect by your phone or device’s bluetooth. And, they’re convenient for calls as well: you can speak and hear your call through them.
There are so many great options out there at present time. Do a little research and you’re sure to find the right pair.
2) Partner-Specific Stocking-Stuffers
Okay, this is it, your time to shine as the ultimate Christmas MVP. Have you been paying close attention over the last few months? We know you have, and we know you can get the perfect gift based on what’s going on in your man’s life.
Partner-specific stocking stuffers make legendary gift-givers out of mere Christmas novices, and create that reaction we’re all hoping to yield during the holidays.
If your guy’s wallet looks like it’s hanging on by a thread, and cards are ready to tumble out any day, a new one would be a surefire success. Is his belt looking like it has seen better days...or years...that can be taken care of too.
Is your man a writer? Splurge for the perfect fountain pen. Is he more of an artist? Pick him up a sketchbook.
It all boils down to you knowing your partner well. And we know you do.
And the Number one Gift…
Skincare from BROmance!
It all begins when guys notice that first wrinkle, those crows feet or those pesky bags under their eyes. They inevitably think, “Is there anything I can do about this?” The good thing is, BROmance has them covered.
We offer unbelievable products, made from all-natural ingredients that are quick to show great results. We fight the signs of aging, and leave men looking better and having more confidence than ever before.
We started BROmance to make skincare simpler for men. We saw a lot of men who wanted to get started with a skincare regimen, but didn’t know where to begin. The result? They were borrowing their girlfriends’ products or navigating stores that were catered far more to women.
BROmance has changed the game. Our Face The Day Cleanser and Age-Proof Moisturizer will have your skin looking and feeling better than ever, and they can be ordered online and delivered right to your door!
So give the gift of skincare this Christmas, and feel great knowing you’ve not only helped your man look better, but feel like a million dollars as well.
