Natalie Langston


The holiday season is back again and I am OVERJOYED to be sharing my gift guides again. I love seeing what goodies have been carefully picked out by opinions I trust, and having them sorted into categories honestly just makes the process so so easy!! I L.O.V.E. putting these together, getting to showcase some of my favourite brands and local small businesses, and imagining these beloved items wrapped up and under your trees waiting for your loved ones 🙂 AH it brings me such joy <3 <3 <3 Alsoooo, the gift guides miiight just give a sneak peek into what’s on my list of 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways… 😉 More details to come soon!

So, without further ado, let’s break down some of my favourite gifts of the year for the favourite men in your life. This year I’m focusing on promoting self-care, whether that’s components for cozy nights in or upgrading his gear that is due for replacement (and works just as hard as he does.)

Cozy at Home

Gary loves to cozy up at night and he needs a new go-to blanket. This UGG Whistler Throw Blanket is PERFECT and I love that the name is BC-relevant 🥰.

Perfect for being cozied up on the couch: A family photo album. Build a custom one with Chatbooks, and I have a code to share!! Enter NATALIES12DAYS at checkout for 20% off all products, and they’re good for 1 use per customer <3

I swear our slippers got the mileage of a lifetime over this past year 😂 Gary definitely needs a new pair haha. I love these UGG Scuff Slippers for puttering around the house or the Pottery Barn Teddy Bear Slippers for something super-fluffy to step into after a shower.

Of course, a super-fluffy robe is another necessity after a shower!!! Pottery Barn’s Coziest Sherpa Robes is another self-care essential.

That said, I’m actually swooning over Scandinave’s Spa at Home Deluxe: fluffy bathrobe, sandals, AND a candle?? I’ll take two, please.

Candles for some self-care nights in!!!! Try Peppermint Cocoa by Mala The Brand or Santal 26 by Le Labo.

Sweats!!!!!!!!!! Kuwalla Tee is my go-to for Gary because they’re so soft and comfy. I love their Chino Jogger 2.0 or their Beach Sweat Pant.

Wilderness/Adventure & Sports

Gary is in dire need of a mug that won’t break at the job site, so this YETI Rambler 24 oz Mug is on my list for him FOR SURE.

Cuba Nero Boots by Olang – these are super warm and have a special grip for snow and ice. Safety first!

Everyone needs a sleek outdoor vest in their wardrobe… I love The North Face 1996 Retro Nuptse Style in Black.

A Smartwool Merino Sport Long Sleeve Crew is great for temperature regulation during cold-weather activities. It also has a reflective design, which is a fantastic safety component for early-morning or late-night running.

New running shoes – I love the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus style!

A YETI Cooler is such a classic, useful gift. I love their Roadie 24 Hard Cooler for a sleek updated style that’s lighter and way less bulky!

Some funky Golf Gloves from Lowo. My favourites are The Mo and Tee The North (or Tee The North 3-Pack if he’s out all the time!) These would all be a GREAT gift joined with a round of golf at Sandpiper Golf Course.

A weekender duffle back like this one by Herschel Supply Co. It’s Gary’s favourite- he loves that it has a shoe compartment! 

Health & Grooming

A spa treatment from Scandinave (this is a two-fer since you can hang out in the baths while he gets his treatment 😉)

Jack Black by Balm Squad is Gary’s favourite – it’s a great stocking stuffer. I love that this comes with a few different tubes so he can leave one in his car, one in his gym bag, and one by his bed.

A Theragun is a buy you WILL NOT regret. These are so great for your muscles whether it’s after a day of skiing or just a long day sitting or standing for work.

Facial Scrub and Facial Moisturizer by Anthony– I love giving Gary his own skincare goodies so we can do ours side-by-side and he doesn’t use up all of mine LOL. This moisturizer has been his favourite for years LOL… liiike, since I met him. I LOVE that the scrub uses sand to exfoliate, which is a big win since microbeads are soo bad for the environment. Also, they both smell AMAZING.

Speaking of smelling amazing…. I am obsessed with Santal 33 Eau de Parfum by Le Labo. For best results, put on a man so he’s always wafting it past you.

Techie Stuff

A new wallet, like the Liam Slim Leather Wallet in Cognac by Nordstrom for a classic style, or this Metal Cash Strap Card Case by The Ridge for one more modern.

An electric toothbrush makes SUCH a big difference for oral health. Our family loves ours by Brüush.

A Nintendo Switch and/or some new games.

The Galaxy Book Go and Galaxy Buds2 both look SO cool!!!!! I love the minimalist in-ear design and colour options.

Fashion & Style

You can never have too many toques! I love this Black Merino Toque by Touques from the Heart, or maybe this Vancouver Team one?

A new backpack… which of course has to be waterproof in Vancouver 😅. I love this one by Rains.

Here I am with more toque options!! The Elmer Knit Beanie by Herschel Supply Co. is a classic.

You can also never have too many socks. This 3-pack from Nordstrom is a great price and a perfect stocking stuffer.

A Woven Leather Bracelet is such a cute and easy accessory!

To match… A new leather belt! I don’t know how but Gary is always losing his 😂

Another “Gary’s Fave” stocking staple… Saxx boxer briefs!

You can never go wrong with cashmere… I love this Hilles Cashmere Crewneck Sweater by Theory. Sweaters = another Christmas staple.
