Happy Holidays! Our final installment of great holiday gifts found in Downtown Calgary concludes today with a fun gift guide for the men in your life. With only a little bit of time left before the holidays officially kicks off (anyone else counting down until PJs, Christmas movies and snacks?) you still have a bit of time to shop for all those guys who need stuff - yet say that they don’t need a thing.

Canadiana Fun

Who doesn’t love to get bundled up in some Canadiana-inspired gear this time of year? Add to his goofy holiday sweater collection with this fun sweatshirt (only $10!) from H&M. Top off the gift  with a cozy, statement-making toque that he will wear year after year.

The Finer Things

For the guy who has everything or prefers to buy quality over quantity, be sure to pick him up something made of great materials and is a classic style. This leather and canvas backpack is an update on the classic briefcase. I’m not sure who actually carries a briefcase these days but you can’t gone wrong with this beautiful backpack that will weather very nicely. The stainless steel mug is a no-brainer for anyone who can’t live without their steaming hot cup of joe each morning. The simple modern design will go with just about everything they own.

Mad Men

Have a Don Draper in your life? Pick him up a pair of retro-inspired shades to keep the sun out of his eyes this holiday season. These tortoise-shell sunglasses from SPRING are perfectly 1960s. Though he probably won’t need them when he is brewing up some homemade gin with this kit from Indigo.

The Cool Guy

Okay, these two gifts totally go together so well. Pick up the Guardians of the Galaxy mix tape and treat him to this luxe leather jacket from Roots. He’ll be strutting around town with his headphones on in no time.
