This year I thought it would be fun to put together a gift guide with some of my favorite gift ideas. Its easy to get stuck in a rut doing Christmas shopping, so here are some great ideas that I think any guy or gal would like.

Holiday Gift Guide Done_2

Below you’ll find all the products with a description for each, plus the approximate cost of each item. I’ve also done my best to provide a link where it can be purchased if you click on the title. Most can be bought online but some are readily available in local stores. In this gift guide I included a range of products, including some that are available in Canada, the US, and a couple are local to Vancouver.
