If there is anything we know well, it is what men want. This Valentine’s Day, we put together this guide of Gifts for Him for all relationship stages and budgets. Many of us have been there. Maybe you just started dating, or you’ve been together for a while, and you just can’t think of what to get them. You don’t want to overspend, or do anything that may spook them or feel uncomfortable, so you tippy toe around the subject and sometimes just revert to picking up something last minute — and it just might be corny AF.
So instead of grabbing some heart shaped chocolates, a cheesy teddy bear, or anything else that he may just toss into the back of the car or closet… Put a little more thought and effort into it, and make sure it’s something he’ll always remember. For the long timers, it just might be the extra spark you need.

Know the man, and get him something he needs or wants. Does he have a beard, does he shave or is he struggling with winter dry skin? Figure out what he needs, but not necessarily his “weaknesses”. No one wants proactive from a significant other, but rather something thoughtful. Throw in a card to explain how and why you curated the self-care that you did.

Does your man need a little help with his ‘Swagger’? We recently caught wind of Nordstrom’s Gentleman’s Club House and it truly is a dream. Think of a laid-back space, with a flat-screen TV and locally brewed beers or cocktails, to help take the edge off shopping. Free one-on-one stylist services are also available, so you’ll walk out the door with exactly what you want. All at no added cost. You can gift him a gift card to get him started off, or tag along and cover up to whatever the value is within budget. Mind blowing right? The Toronto Eaton Centre and New York Men’s Store locations are by far, our favs!CALL NOW to BOOK
