Edmonton shops with great gifts for guys

Getting gifts for guys is a gargantuan task - we’re not always upfront about what we want and often happy with pretty well anything. A blank slate can be intimidating. Good thing Edmonton has plenty of places to find perfect presents for dudes.


10816 82 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T6E 2B3

Of course, knives aren’t limited to men, but if the guy’s a gourmand, great! Knifewear has a selection of gorgeous Japanese knives you won’t find anywhere else in town. You pay for the quality, but you won’t regret it. For the fella who likes to get fancy with his facial hair, it also has section dedicated to straight razor shaving and the requisite accessories.


2401-8882 170 Street NW, Edmonton, AB T5T 4M2

Simons is well-known for carrying every possible piece of clothing and accessories in anyone’s price range. Stylish tie for your pops? Flattering underwear for your guy? Suit for your son? If you think the dude on your list needs it, Simons has it. Plus, it’s in West Edmonton Mall, so you’re probably there already if you were willing to brave the Christmas crowds.

Barber Ha

202-10011 82 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T6E 1Z2

Few things feel better than looking good from the shoulders up. Barber Ha does stylish cuts and straight shaves that will leave the guy looking and feeling sexy as hell. If you want him looking like he just jumped off a GQ cover all year, get him a Barber Ha Legion membership. Otherwise, nothing says “you gonna look good” like a Barber Ha gift card.

Happy Harbor Comics

10729 104 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T5J 3K1

So, the guy’s a nerd and wants Absolute All-Star Superman … Done. Why not grab him a Batman figurine while you’re at it? Oh, and he did mention something about manga, so you’d better grab that as well. If it’s comics-related and he’s into it, you’ll find it at Happy Harbor.

Hobby Wholesale

6136 Gateway Blvd NW, Edmonton, AB T6H 2H8

If the nerdy guy isn’t into comics, then swing by here and get him a gift related to pretty much anything else. Seriously, from robots, trains and RC cars to LEGO, rockets and kites, there’s something for anyone who likes to have fun and build stuff. If he’s into those eternally frustrating billion-piece puzzles, they have those, too.

The Briefing Room

10151 82 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T6E 1Z5

Guys are coming around to the fun socks and sexy underwear trend, so be sure to stop by The Briefing Room, Edmonton’s best shop for men’s underthings. Regardless of the guy’s style or preference, you’ll find something here for him. Beyond what’s under his jeans, there are also accessories, like bowties and swimwear - you know, for the guy that wants to look classy while swimming laps.

Blackbyrd Myoozik

10442 82 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T6E 2A2

If the guy’s a vinyl fanatic (or you’re planning to make him one), Blackbyrd should be your first stop. If he’s a jazz junkie, there’s an abundance of Ella. If he’s a metalhead, grab him an Iron Maiden picture disk. Hipster? There’s always Sigur Rós. If you can’t find the right record, the team members know their stuff.

United Cycle

7620 Gateway Blvd Nw, Edmonton, AB T6E 4Z8

There’s a reason United Cycle is Edmontonians’ go-to sports store - it has literally everything for every sport. There are skis, skates, boards and everything else for the snow sports fanatic and cleats, rugby scrum caps and cricket bats for the guy who prefers hibernation. Of course, they have a massive selection of bikes for all skills and uses, even when the snow’s flying.

Princess Auto

9835 34 Avenue NW, Edmonton, AB T6E 5X9

Every guy who even thinks he knows his way around a garage loves Princess Auto, and for good reason - both locations are massive mazes of anything related to the mechanical. If he’s just starting out, you can grab him a pack of wrenches. If he’s a next-level tinkerer, grab him an engine hoist. Thanks to it having its own brand, you can stock up on tools and gifts for reasonable prices.

Nobody finds clothes easily, but it’s a wild journey for those of above average height, especially if you’re a lady. Lucky for the long-legged lasses around Edmonton, there are a few great options.
If you’re over six feet tall, chances are you have a few go-to replies in your back pocket, like your exact height and whether you play basketball. But, do you have a good place to grab clothes? There’s a few places in Edmonton that can help.
Comics are a source of wonder, amazement and great storytelling (just ask Hollywood). But, like any good addiction, you need a good supplier. Good thing the Edmonton area has more great comic shops than Deadpool has chimichangas. [Image credit: iStock.com/Cristie Guevara]
