Lifestyle | Best Gifts for Bae – Holidays 2017

Purchasing gifts for your sibling might be a breeze, but shopping for your significant other isn’t always so easy. Surprise the guy who has it all with one of the gift ideas below.

The Apple Watch: Series 3

For guys who have to have the latest tech gadget, the Series 3 is a must. Unlike Series 1, Series 3 takes it up a notch with the addition of LTE. The watch is conveniently perfect for fitness, so if bae’s a runner or goes to the gym, he can forget about lugging around an entire phone. Its smooth interface and ability to seamlessly sync with other Apple products make this smartwatch both useful and trendy. And if he’s already an Apple junkie, this is another great addition to the collection.


A Beard Grooming Kit

Whether bae keeps his beard trimmed or a little on the wild side, it still needs some loving. Let him condition and nourish it with the right product, which is far less unheard of today than in the past. Gift packs often include a hydrating moisturizer, a wash, a great comb or brush, and a balm. Try favourites such as the Zeus Deluxe Beard Grooming Kit for Men, Beardsly in the Box Beard Case Set, Mammoth Beard Co., and Maison Lamber Deluxe Beard Care Set. His beard will thank him, and you can enjoy a smoother kiss without those bristly hairs.


A Men’s Skincare Set

His skin could use a little TLC too, and chances are, your guy’s skincare regimen isn’t as thorough as yours. Plenty of skincare products cater specifically to men, additionally complimented with masculine packaging. Clinique for Men is a tried-and-true line, while Jack Black and Biotherm products are other strong contenders. The right moisturizers, shaving creams, and cleansers will keep bae’s face looking fresh and hydrated.


A Hype Pair of Socks

An overwhelming trend in menswear is socks that pop. Whether bae holds a corporate position or he’s the ultimate hipster, a fun footed pattern puts a little oomph to his step. See Stance’s NBA Future Legends collection for a caricature of his favourite player, or their Star-Wars inspired line for his inner Jedi. Sharks, rap artists, and psychedelic patterns are just the tip of the iceberg. If bae is less adventurous, classic argyll and stripes always do the trick, and they pair expertly with a suit. Bae is sure to look fresh—from his head to his toes.


A Great Cookbook

If he’s the next Bobby Flay or Anthony Bourdain, first of all, you’ve got a keeper, and second of all, he could use a great cookbook. Ignite his culinary passion, then sit back and wait for that incredible meal. From grilling to roasting and everything in between, there are so many books to choose from, regardless of his specific niche, to please his palette and refine his interest. Try Essentials of Italian Cooking, Smoking Meat, and fan favourite, Thug Kitchen.
