Holiday Gift Guide | Boyfriend Edition 2018

Gift giving season is upon us and if you’re a last minute shopper like me, then here are 15 gift ideas for your hubby!

I honestly find getting gifts for guys the most difficult. Whether it’s my Dad or my boyfriend, nothing I see in store or online seems good enough to give! So I’ve done some of the heavy lifting and figured out what’s trending for guys this year.

Hopefully this will help you pick out a gift that’s perfect for your man. Maybe he even needs some of these items! 😉 #winwin


Portable Charger

You can’t go wrong with a portable charger and you’re in luck this year if your boyfriend doesn’t have one already! Here are a few popular ones:

Portable Charger Anker PowerCore 20100mAh

AUKEY 20000mAh Portable External Battery Charger Power Bank

Portable Charger, Xiaomi Mi Slim Power Bank Pro 10000mAh

Virtual Reality Device

If you’re looking for an out-of-the-box gift idea, this is definitely one of them. The VR devices today can get pretty pricey, but if you’re on a budget then this soft Google device will do the trick and save you some bucks.

GoPro Google OEM Daydream View, VR Headset

Slippers

Guys will wear the sh*t out of their at-home slippers (I’ve seen it firsthand) so why not get him a brand new pair? Maybe even splurge a little bit and get him UGGS!

UGG Men’s Scuff Slipper

Sunglasses

This can be a tricky gift to give, but a great one nonetheless if you know what style of sunglasses your BF likes. I think that Raybans are always a safe option! Below is a little bit of inspo for you!

Gloves

I don’t know about you but my boyfriend doesn’t wear gloves when it’s cold at. Maybe it’s because he doesn’t have any, or maybe he just doesn’t care LOL. Either way, a pair of gloves is a useful and thoughtful gift to give!

Canada Goose Workman Gloves

Tech Touch Commuter Gloves

Toque or Beanie

Just like gloves, a toque or a beanie (whichever is your mans style) serves as a great gift, maybe even just a stocking stuffer. You can even go the extra mile with this gift and get a designer one!

Best Made Co. Cap of Courage Lambswool Beanie

Canada Goose Arctic Disc Merino Wool Toque Beanie

Lip Balm & Hand Cream Duo

Even though they may not admit that they need or use lip balm and hand cream, they do. This is a wonderful stocking stuffer because it’s so small!

Fuzzy Coat

The teddy coat trend is huge this year, again, and not just for women! There are tons of amazing teddy coat options out there for guys.

UO Sherpa Exterior Trucker Jacket

UO Ultra Shaggy Bomber Jacket

Cologne

I’ve passed my fragrance obsession on to my boyfriend and I’m not mad about it hehe. If your man is running low on his favourite cologne, give him a new one! We all know these things are pricey! Better yet, choose a cologne that you like the smell of 😉 There’s a 50/50 chance he’ll like it and wear it for you.

Shop Men’s Cologne

Amazon Alexa or Google Home

If your budget is a little bigger this year, give your boyfriend the gift of convenience with an Amazon Alexa or Google Home. I personally love the Amazon Alexa but have also heard great reviews on the Google Home!

Google Home

All-new Echo Dot (3rd gen) – Smart speaker with Alexa – Charcoal

Designer Wallet or Card Holder

It’s always nice to receive a designer gift and if you’re not up for spending thousands of dollars on one, then a wallet or card holder is a great alternative.

Robe

Keep your man warm this holiday season with a new robe! Everyone loves lounging around the house in a robe, am I right? 😛 I don’t think you can go wrong with this gift!

Wireless Ear Buds

If you’re up for a little research then this is a great gift option. Luckily I’ve done some of the work for you already! 😉 Here are some of the best wireless ear buds out there in 2018.

Pajamas

Everyone needs pajamas at some point or another, even your guy. Better yet, how about a matching couples pajama set!?! I wish I’d thought of this sooner for my boyfriend! LOL.

Candle or Diffuser

Let’s be real here, this may just be a gift to yourself 😉 If your guy has his own place then candles or a diffuser will be a great addition, especially during the holidays. If you get him a diffuser you can also grab a multi-pack of essential oils for him to choose from!

Gift Ideas for the Bath & Fragrance Lover

Christmas is right around the corner and although it’s very close, some of us may not have completed our holiday shopping yet! This season makes it so easy for us to get caught up in holiday festivities that gift picking and wrapping often get left until the last minute. If you’re scrambling to find a gift for a special someone or maybe even for a staff party gift exchange, I’ve got a quick & easy solution for you! It’ll be even better for you if the person you’re gifting to is a fragrance, bath, or body care lover.

I’ve teamed up with Thymes Fragrances to present to you some amazing gift or stocking stuffer ideas in the forms of body lotion, bubble baths, and perfumes. Here are a few of my favourite scents and products from the brand.

Stocking Stuffer Ideas

Petite Body Lotion

Scents Available: Aqua Coralline, Eucalyptus, Goldleaf Gardenia, Goldleaf, Kimono Rose, Lavender, Lotus Santal, Tupelo Lemongrass, Vanilla Blanc

These little guys are perfect for on the go and travelling. The size is insanely convenient because you can easily carry them around in your purse! Two of my favourite scents from Thymes are Kimono Rose and Goldleaf Gardenia.

Cologne or Perfume

Thymes Fragrances just came out with a brand new scent, Vanilla Blanc, and I have to say it’s probably the best vanilla scented perfume I’ve ever tried on. It has an exotic and natural scent of vanilla tied with orchid, amber, and bergamot. An absolute treat to wear and perfect for someone who loves to smell sweet!

Gift Ideas

Body Lotion

If you’re looking for a bigger gift to give then the larger versions of the Thymes petite body lotions are perfect! Who doesn’t love a great smelling lotion right?

Bubble Bath

The Thymes Fragrances bubble bath selection is sure to leave you feeling refreshed, stress free, and hydrated. My favourite fragrance from the collection is Goldleaf which includes notes of jasmine, roses, hyacinth, lily of the valley, and oak moss. It’s one of those scents that instantly soothes you and puts you in a relaxed mood. I’d happily accept it as a gift!

I hope this post has been a help for you last minute shoppers! Order soon from the Thymes website or pick up a few of their products at your local Chapters-Indigo in time for Christmas. There’s nothing better than the gift of a good scent!

Happy Holidays my loves!
