Make Your Mark on Fashion this Winter — The Mark’s Christmas 2016 Gift Guide

I feel like people have Mark’s all wrong. For a long time, people thought Mark’s carried “Dad clothes” like it was a bad thing. But in 2016 as a Dad with kids of my own, I can tell you Mark’s has a lot more up their sleeves than you think!

Winter’s a bit different for the Dad of a toddler, knowing that he could lead you virtually anywhere. Anywhere. Thigh-deep in snow, traipsing through mud… everything’s an adventure when you’re three, and parents have no choice but to tag along for the ride—wherever it goes.

Which is why you need to dress for the occasion!

Along with a new winter coat and making sure to layer up, I made sure to suit up for whatever winter might throw at me with a pair of Sorel Men’s Glacier XT Winter Boots ($179.99!) Built to handle even the most treacherous Canadian winters, it rocks features like:

  • protection against the elements to the tune of a bone-chilling -73.3ºC
  • water- and wind-resistant coated uppers and waterproof rubber shells
  • 13mm-thick inner lines with an Omni-Heat™ reflective lining to keep your tootsies toasty

And if you haven’t yet prepared for the big chill (#ShameOnYou), there’s plenty available at Mark’s to keep your warm, like the DH3 HYPER-DRI HD1 Water-Repellent Double Breasted Coat with Fooler ($229.99) paired with a WindRiver Reversible Plaid Beanie ($19.99) and a pair of WindRiver Deerskin TMAX Gloves ($44.99.)

#100HappyDays — Day 3 — Google Gloves

Once upon a time, I went to a Toronto Travel Massive event at the Google Canada headquarters, and at the end of the session, they gave away Expedia flip-flops and Google touchscreen gloves.

10 months later, and after having my fingers freeze outside a couple of times with not-as-awesome iGloves, I was happy to find these when searching for a wayward USB key 🙂

I never did find the USB key, but at least I could play Ingress on my phone without my fingers trying to disown the rest of my body!

#100HappyDays Day 3/100!
