Christmas is a time of toys for good girls and boys. Adult girls and boys can still get in on the toy game with a great ToyWatch.
A great watch is more than just functional it can be that pop of colour your wardrobe needed. ToyWatch has a huge line up of great fashionable watches in a wide variety of materials, colours and designs.
A favourite with celebrities you can feel like a star giving one to the people on you list.
After weeks of Christmas Carols and Jingle Bells ringing in your ears, you & the people on your list may want to plug in your own music instead.
Don’t settle for those poor sounding earphones that were included with your portable music device or phone.
You only have one set of ears and they deserve to be treated with respect, so does the music you let them hear. Sweden’s Urbanears makes a wide range of in-the-ear, over-ear, on-the-ear style earphones so something is bound to ‘fit’ your list. Get some great sound, cool design and amazing fit for a reasonable price (around $65) with Urbanears Medis. Once I had a chance to try them, I’ve never wanted to use any other earphone, especially when using them to work out.
If you’re looking for something equally as stylish and good quality sound but a lower price point. Again the Swedish style wins out with the newly introduced Coloud ear and headphones. Besides sounding and looking good a great feature with this line is the no-tangle cord, this cord eliminates that knotted mess when we pull out our earphones.
Whichever line you choose, you’re gift of sound will literally be music to the ears of those on your list.
If you’ve got great shoes, like yesterday’s Native Fitzsimmon Boots, you need some great socks to wear underneath them.
Look no further than Instance Socks. Funky, fun and functional these are designer socks that do away with the pretension or boredom that usually comes with a high end sock. If you’re looking for something to wear snow or skate boarding Instance has the quality fabrics and weave that will stay up and not bunch under your boots or fave kicks. For the corporate 9 to 5er looking to have a little fun to break the doldrums of day to day living, slipping on a colourful pair of Instance can instantly liven up the attitude. Collaborations with artists and athletes or bands like Red Hot Chili Peppers and Wu Tang Clan makes sure there’s always something creative and unique peaking out from above your shoe. Cotton, Coolmax or Cashmere blends make sure these socks are as comfortable as they are fashionable, plus, I don’t think I’ve had to pull up my socks once when wearing a pair of Instance. Put these on your list and stuff them in your loved one’s stocking.
The weather turns for the wetter here in Vancouver over the typical Holiday season so to make sure your feet stay dry a good pair of shoes are in order. Leave it to a Vancouver company to figure out how to make the most of our weather while keeping your feet stylish, dry and light! Native Shoes, Fitzsimmons Boot is just the thing to keep your feet ready for whatever mother nature throws at you. Comfy, functional, fun and lightweight, the Fitzsimmon comes in 19 colours and finishes. Unlike many of the other Native shoes there’s no holes in the upper and they have a built in comfortable cushion ‘sock’ to wrap your foot in soft, warm foam. Even with my feet ‘wrapped’ in the warmth, I’ve walked around town for hours in my boots and my feet were comfortable and dry (inside and out). They were a much appreciated gift when I received them so I’m sure the Fitzsimmon will make a great gift for the outdoor enthusiast or urban warrior on your list.
A good pair of Jeans is the gift that everyone will cherish. Once you find the pair that fits you just right, you know how valuable of a gift that is.
For me, Zanerobes Straight Mate is that type of go-to jean. It’s a great fitting cut, straight leg; not too wide, not too tight. They’re great all occasion jeans, looking as good with a fave old t-shirt as with a tailored dress shirt. Just in time for Christmas, they’re on Sale right now, at Zanerobes online shop
If you’re looking for a gift to add a touch of colour to the closet to help ‘make the spirits bright’, check out Neuw Denim Black Colour. A rich palate of warm tones, that will hold their colour all through the cold weather. Using a coloured top thread (warp) against a black bottom thread (weft) instead of the traditional white weft, creates a deep jewel tone like high end indigo denim.
Whether it’s a classic pair from Zanerobes or bright Neuw Black Colour, denim is probably on every list
Need a simple gift that everyone can use and love? Tees and tanks make a great choice. By choosing one from Ten Tree Apparel, you get a great top that’s socially aware as well.
Recently names a “Game Changer” by CBC’s Dragons Den, Ten Tree plants ten trees for every tee, tank, hoodie or hat they sell, so you can feel good about your gift. Comfortable and well made men’s and ladies’ tees, hoodies, tanks and hats means you’re bound to find something to put under the tree for just about everyone on your list.
