Are you stuck trying to find a Vancouver Man a unique, locally influenced holiday gift? Don’t want to break the bank? Here’s the Briefed low down on our best selections for this winter:
BBGun Leather makes amazing stuff. One look at their product gallery, and you’ll get the idea. Their locally made leather bowtie & pocket square set costs less than $50 and is a great dress-it-up/dress-it-down piece for your man’s collection.
It’s no surprise that The Oxford Dictionaries Word of the Year is… vape. Get a 5-pack of premium juice from VapeMeet – a local ‘vape’ shop and online store. $74.99 makes sure you get at least one flavour your guy will enjoy.
Men like chocolate too. Get your guy some from Mink, a local chocolatery. Our suggestion is the Mermaid bar at $6.25, which -unlike it’s name suggests – packs a very masculine flavour. The Mermaid is the Gold Medal for BEST CHOCOLATE BAR at the 2014 International Chocolate Salon and sends your tastebuds flavours of burnt caramel and fleur de sel, with a hint of rosemary.
Know a guy that likes booze but has tried it all? Yaletown Distillery not only makes their own, unique and delicious spirits right in front of your eyes [while using some of the most bad-ass looking distillery equipment this side of the atlantic], but they let you sample the products while you shop – win, win. We recommend the 42% gin. Bottles are cheapest where they’re made, so go visit them in Yaletown at 1132 Hamilton St.
Anything from Hobo Works will get a thumbs up from your dude. From laptop cases to growler carriers, these guys are on the up-and-up. Check out their website and request a visit to their shop to get your wooden creation.
