2020 what a time huh? Well, the ride isn’t over just yet and although this holiday season will probably be very different than previous ones we’ve experienced that doesn’t mean it can’t be memorable. In an attempt to normalize the new normal we’ve once again put together a very solid gift guide for that special male-identifying (or anyone really) person in your life. Looking for a gift or two that will make anyone smile? Lets dive right into the best gifts 2020 has to offer.
Versace Skateboard, $990 CAD
Okay, this is pretty super rad. It’s a skateboard but it’s also totally art. So whether it ends up getting used as a deck or just post up on someone’s wall this is the ultimate “didn’t see it coming” gift! The Versace white print skateboard features the check pattern and logo printed in black on both the front and back faces. Comes with tonal wheels and black and silver-tone hardware and is made in Italy. Damn!
If this is a bit out of your desired price range, the cool skateboard deck is still a good option as a gift for the usability/art piece. The MoMa has some incredible decks feature so slick art. Personally, the Raymond Pettibon Skateboard is a must-have but all of them work.
Philips OneBlade Face + Body, $64.99 CAD [ad]
Here’s the deal, the Philips OneBlade Face+Body is an incredible gift for anyone, whether it’s your bestie, your partner or your brother. We’ve been using it for nearly five years and it really stands up to all the competitors out there, and at an affordable price. With this tool, you get a blade for your face, and one for your body. The contour-following technology is wonderful at trimming, edging, and shaving any length of hair, so you can use it in the shower for a quick beard trim or mini manscape session. The hybrid styler head helps cut in around those fine lines at the edges – it comes equipped with four stubble combs to keep any length of facial hair in check, plus a handy skin guard can be attached to the body blade to make sure those sensitive areas remain protected. Remember, it’s always important to maintain a well-groomed appearance, and we think the Philips OneBlade is the perfect way to gift that experience to another this holiday.
NN07 Niko Merino Wool Beanie, $89 CAD
Having a warm winter hat is a no brainer, but it needn’t be a drab affair. We suggest this beautiful made in Italy, 100% Merino beanie from NN07, a stylish must-have accessory for anyone. Coming in five different on-trend colours, there is for anyone on your holiday gift list!
Under Armour Sportsmask, $35.00 CAD
LARQ Bottle Movement – Terra Edition, $125 CAD
It is so important to be properly hydrated. Not to put it lightly (pun intended) but drinking enough water each day is crucial to regulate body temperature, lubricate joints, prevent infections, deliver nutrients to cells, and keep organs functioning properly. It also improves sleep quality, cognition, and mood. It’s good for the skin, and so much more. Get it? Well the LARQ Bottle Movement is an ultralightweight, reusable, rechargeable water bottle that cleans itself and the water in it. With digital purification from UV-C LED light, the water and bottle are purified at the touch of a button or it will intelligently activate every 2 hours. The cap holds a 280nm UV-C light, that neutralizes up to 99.9999% of harmful, odour-causing germs. One charge lasts up to one month and recharges via USB. Isn’t that super rad? The Terra Edition features colourways inspired by the beauty of the forests, beaches, deserts and rocky mountains making this more than simply a water bottle.

Mavic Mini 2 Fly More Combo, $559 CAD
The DJI Mavic Mini 2 is one of the smallest, most portable drones on the market today.
