Sweet on You

Gifts for Guys

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and I find coming up with gift ideas a bit of a challenge – especially for the guy who seemingly has it all. I’ve curated a list of fun gifts that he will looove!

Whether he loves to create edible art or a delicious medium-rare steak, his tools should be equally as beautiful as the food he’s preparing. Maybe if you snag this gorgeous Japanese handcrafted Premier Chef’s Knife (available in a variety of sizes), he’ll want to whip up Valentine’s Day dinner every year for you (WIN!). When he needs his blades sharpened, just bring them back to House of Knives for professional sharpening; no appointment necessary.

This monstrous 252-Piece Chocolate Heart Box from Purdys Chocolatier is so over-the-top, elaborate, and extravagant . . . I love it. You really can’t go wrong with a box of chocolates, especially at this scale; it will send a BIG and SWEET message. Plus, he’ll need help finishing ALLLL those chocolates, and that’s where you come in. Thank me later.

Does a typical date for you two look like getting whisked away to Banff National Park to shred pow or mountain biking through beautiful landscapes on long weekends? Lucky you! The adventurer in your life will love the latest GoPro HERO10 to record his snowboarding escapades and create a “sick” montage to show you and his friends later. Wipeout compilation? I’m here for it.

We’re in the heart of leather weather right now, but this is also a quality investment piece for Spring and Fall. This Filmore Motorcycle Leather Jacket is the ultimate cool-guy, James Dean style choice and is always in fashion, even if he doesn’t own a Harley yet (though I’m sure he’s asked for one already . . .).

This Stainless Steel Watch is very reasonably priced at $90.00 but still maintains a sophisticated look with a gorgeous cognac leather strap. So . . . saddle up and head over to Hudson’s Bay to check out their selection of watches ASAP, though I’m sure this one’s already won him over.

Hold the phone – these Ray-Bans ain’t your average pair of sunglasses; they are part of the new Stories collection which is wearable technology to “keep your eyes on the world around you”. He can take hands-free photos and videos from a first-person perspective, listen to music, and even take a call with them. Maybe you need a pair, too?

Fellow Al-beer-tans! Trust me; he needs these Saxx Vibe Boxer Briefs. Even if he’s not taking up your entire garage brewing questionable-tasting craft beers every Friday with his boys, he’ll still love ‘em. Still don’t know what the big deal is with Saxx? Check out this article from Insider to learn more.

I was Christmas shopping last month and admittedly bought a dad hat for myself when I was looking for a gift idea for someone else, so beware . . . when you walk into Lids, you might find a cute Yankees hat to take home, too. Lids has a great variety of uber-trendy dad hats, and he can even rep his favourite team on it, too.

Maia is a classic Central Albertan gal who KNOWS her way around Bower Place . . . she grew up exploring it! If she’s not scouting the best of The Great Indoors, she’s probably strapping on her hiking pack to escape to the mountains or grabbing her cowboy boots (she’ll never say “no” to a rodeo). She has a love of free-spirited 70s vibes including eclectic accessories, bright colours, and fun patterns.
