Men’s Gift Guide


Sock Club

I don’t know about you but I love getting new socks over the holidays, and now more than ever!  Socks have become more of an accessory than a necessity.  And why not?  Why not show a little bit of personality on your feet on a daily basis. 

I totally love the idea of getting a brand new pair of socks every month, and what a perfect gift!  This is much better than any magazine subscription, and what a fun thing to look forward to each month.

The socks come wrapped and with a personalized gift message – how fun!

Check out some of my favs

For more info and to buy a subscription for your fav guy go HERE.  If you are buying as a gift there is a gift certificate to give to your special someone.  If you buy before November 27th you will receive before Christmas or you can use the gift certificate (found on their website) and they will receive early January!




For as long as I have known Shaun he has always been a Mark's guy!  I knew that if I went in I was sure to find something that suited him.  I can now say that if anyone was to walk in you would find something that suits the guy in your life.  Just check this out!

So many great choices in so many different styles.  I can not wait to take Shaun to get a new outfit at Mark's, I think that he falls into the Simple Yet Stylish Category! For more info on Mark's and to find the store closest to you click HERE  What outfit do you like?  I love how they match from outerwear, to belts and shoes.  It really takes the guessing out of the perfect outfit. 

Plantronics – BackBeat FIT

Shaun has been looking for a good pair of wireless headphones for a while and he has finally decided that these are the ones that he wants while on his runs!


This is why they are AWESOME:

  • ​Waterproof
  • 8-HR battery
  • weighs only 24 grams
  • come with a carrying case
  • 10 metre wireless range

A pretty awesome gift – who wants to be held back buy cords!  I can definitely see Shaun wearing these on his run (once his leg is better of course)

Xiaomi – Mi4i

When Shaun thinks about getting a new phone, he usually does TONS of research.  And let's just say he is not the guy getting the same phone as everyone else just because.  He told me that the phone on his wish list is the Mi4i.  Let's just say that he thinks it is "killer" so it has to be good!



Now from my perspective it is a real good looking phone, but let me get nerdy for a second and tell you why Shaun thinks its a great phone:

13MP Sony/Samsung camera

5-element lens, f/2.0 aperture
Two-tone flash
Supports manual mode, real-time HDR, Torch
Supports 1080p video recordings

5" Sharp/JDI

and much much more.  For more information on the Mi4i click HERE

Walkera Runner 250


Drones…….I don't really get them but I see the huge hype about them.  I really do believe that boys will always have toys, they just get a little more exciting!  Shaun has been talking about the Runner 250 for a little while so I thought the best thing for me to do was check out a video.

Cool right?

It also:

  • transmitting range is 1km
  • it supports a GoPro
  • 5.8 G antennae
  • Carbon Fibre Frame

And so much more.  Check out the Walkera site HERE for more information.

Andis – Headliner T-Blade Trimmer

Shaun is very particular about what he uses to cut his hair and shave.  He knows what works and he has always done his research!

The best thing about Shaun is that he knows good quality but also looks for things at a great pricepoint and the Headliner T-Blade Trimmer definitely falls into that category.


This Kit comes with everything you need:

  •  Headliner® with close-cutting T-blade is perfect for trimming, outlining, designing and dry shaving.
  •  Ideal for maintaining bald and close-cut hairstyles for men.
  •  Powerful but quiet rotary motor.
  •  Long lasting carbon-steel blade.
  •  5-year warranty.
