With the big day less than a month away, it’s time to start looking to buy gifts that say “I love you” for your significant other, and even for yourself! We’ve come up with a multitude of ideas based off of our products to make your “V-day” shopping that much easier. Read on love bug!

Gifts for Him

This is a gloomy time of year – we can’t deny it. Most of us are tired of the winter blues and eager to skip forward to sunnier days. While we can’t speed up time, we can give you options to prepare your man for brighter spring days, while keeping him comfortable for the rest of the winter chill!

If you know his foot size and general taste, get him a shoe that will walk him into spring with style. Try a trendy sneaker like the Kenneth Cole's Reem Lace Ups, or a Camper Formiga sneaker. Shoes like these are perfect to bridge the gap between contrasting seasons. Check out these shoes, as well as similar styles in our men’s new arrivals collection! To keep your boo warm and dry as we ease into march and April, grab them a sleek moisture wicking shell that he can layer with. Try the Swims Basel Raincoat, the Hunter Original Waterproof Vinyl Windcheater, or the Swims Portland II Vest!

Finish this combo with a sleek backpack, perfect for lunches, laptops or whatever your man needs for a day at work, or out of the office. Here at Heel Boy we carry a wide range of backpacks so it may be hard to pick just one! If he’s the sportier type, try an Ucon Acrobatics pack in Frederik or Nathan Stealth. More of a trend setter? Try the Mackage “Croydon” or a Matt & Nat Paxx bag!

Maybe your man has already worn through his winter shoes, and as we’re still in January, now may be a good time to get him set up in another pair of boots durable enough to last him through the end of winter – and next year’s too! You can’t go wrong with any of the brands in our men’s winter boot collection. Look to Royal Canadian’s King Street boot or Cougar’s Serge 2 Winter Boot for inspiration! Top off his look with a brand-new Swims Zurich II Parka to wait out the cold.
