Stocking Stuffers for Him


Have you considered how much time and effort and energy goes into crafting the perfect stocking? You want to strike that perfect balance between practical must-haves and quirky where’d-you-find-thats, all while ideally spending a relatively low amount of money. My first piece of advice is to set a budget – it can be so easy to let your stocking stuffer budget spiral out of control. My second piece of advice is to pick up goodies while handling other shopping. At the grocery store for your Christmas turkey? Scour the seasonal (and regular!) aisles for some tasty treats. Picking up a prescription at the grocery store? Grab some razors or body wash while you’re at it. My third piece of advice is to read the Canadian Gift Guide year-round. Although I feel silly doing it, Ill often call out things as early as January that would make good stocking stuffers. Better to stockpile year-round than rush like a maniac come Christmas. In fact, in going back through my archives a few weeks ago, I actually came across an idea in MARCH if you can believe it that I ended up buying for my guy. Gift inspiration is 365 days a year on the CGG after all…Bic Flex 4BIC Flex 4 – $6.69 – $8.99 @ Drugstores Nationwide
My fiancee asks for razors in his stocking every single Christmas – it is, after all, the ultimate practical luxury gift: it’s something he’ll never stop needing, yet it’s also kind of a pain to spring for. Plus a recent survey revealed two-thirds of ladies prefer a guy with a clean shaven face. These disposable BIC shavers offer all the perks of a pricier, replaceable razor – including a lubricating strip with Vitamin E and aloe, and comfort-providing features like an extra thick handle, extra wide rubber guard bar, and a pivoting head for a closer, more even shave. An extra smart choice if you’re heading on holidays this winter and don’t want to rely on an electric razor!

Twirling Spaghetti Fork – $12.99 @ Grand River Toys
Have a hungry man on your hands? Make scooping up spaghetti a cinch with this battery-operated twirling fork, perfect for swirling up your favourite long noodles for the biggest, sauciest bite possible.

Clorox Electronics Cleaning Wipes – $14.99 @ Mass Market Retailers
Think about how many times we use our favourite electronics devices – including tablets, phones, eReaders, and laptops – every single day. Now think about where those things go when we’re not using them, or conversely, where our hands go between uses. The bottom line? Your favourite gadget is also home to a whole family of icky bacteria – in fact, one study recently found that 16% of cell phones test positive for E.coli! Keep your screens clean from germs and smudges alike with Clorox’s new line of electronics cleaning wipes, safe for any digital device.

Detachable Keyring – $12.98 @ Solutions.com (call to place your order)
Keep the many facets of your busy life in order with this handy detachable key ring that makes it a snap to share keys for all the parts of your life. Hand over the keys to your wheels to the valet without losing access to the rest of your precious unlocking devices. Or toss your storage unit key to one of the kids so you don’t have to make the trip, but can still hit the road to go elsewhere. Help out a new employee by lending them your work key until theirs is cut. No matter what, know it’s oh-so-easy to keep track of your keys, and share them too!

Chocolate Potato ChipsPresident’s Choice Chocolate Covered Potato Chips – $3.99 @ Loblaws Nationwide
If I had to describe these salty-sweet, crispy-chewy treats in a single word, it would be: decadent. President’s Choice signature chunky, crunchy chips enveloped in a robe of milky-sweet chocolate? It really doesn’t get better than that. It also makes the perfect movie snack. Don’t believe me on the sugar-salt front? Try a french fry with a Wendy’s frosty or a few squares of a Caramilk bar in your movie theatre popcorn – nothing quite beats the finger-lickin’ taste of chocolate and salt combined.

Trudeau Beer Cap Catcher

Trudeau Beer Cap Catcher – $9.99 @ Linen Chest
If he’s something of a social butterfly, he’s probably cleaned up a mess or two after a party. Make the job a tiny bit less painful with this bottle opener / cap catcher. As you pop open your favourite bottled drink, the caps are all collected in one secure, easy-to-empty capsule. He’ll thank you when his next hangover hits.

Wonder Warmers – $11.99+
Do you shake your head at his ability to go ice fishing in the morning, or camping in the early spring? Does his ability to run for ten miles or his talent at sitting on a cold stadium bench impress you to no end? Rest assured, he’s very much grinning and bearing it – and could use with a little warmth. Wonder Warmers are a beloved product by professional athletes and everyday outdoorsy types alike. These handy heat pouches can be reused over 100 times, heat instantly, and last for up to two hours per use. Tuck them into your mitts, use them to soothe sore muscles, or buy the big-sized ones to sit on when he’s ‘enjoying’ the great outdoors.

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. Lip Balm – $1
His whiskers may be bristly, but his lips need not chap your face – at least not after he uses this all-natural lip balm from beer brewers Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. As you may have guessed, this lip balm actually contains hop oils, making it that much more manly (and likely to end up on his lips)!

Polara Golf Ball Challenge Pack – $11.95 @ Golf Retailers Nationwide
If your guy is a golfer, he’ll get a kick out of these self-correcting balls that are designed to fix up his slice. Polara is so confident of their technology, they actually challenge you to play a favourite course with regular balls on the front 9, and their balls on the back 9, just to see the difference. If he’s already a convert or super timid to change up his swing, get this challenge pack which includes two packs of the brand’s signature balls – the original Ultimate Straight and the XD Extra Distance.

Old Spice Red Zone Danger Zone Collection – $4-7 @ Drugstores & Mass Market Retailers
I really wanted to write you guys an elaborate entry on this collection based on Old Spice’s fabulous ‘Your Man’ ads, but instead I’m just going to have to promise you that if you want your man to smell great, hook him up with this powerful grime-busting collection of man-potions (deodorant, body wash, and body spray to be exact) to invigorate him in the morning and keep him fresh and forceful throughout his entire workday. Also awesome for him to toss into his gym bag for his winter hockey league or indoor weightlifting.

If you want to help your guy indulge in some manscaping this holiday season, you might just be in luck. I’ve got a great prize package including a complete set of the Old Spice Red Zone Danger Zone line, plus to help guys put their best face forward, I’ve also got a BIC prize package valued at more than $50. Here’s how to enter:

1) Leave a comment by January 5th with your favourite stocking stuffer idea for dudes that was featured on this list.

2) Entries are limited to one per person / per email address / per household (or more if you score bonus entries). A random draw will be conducted on or around January 6th to select the winner, who will have 48 hours to respond before another winner is chosen in their place.
