This holiday season, we have created the ultimate gift list by Gentologie for you. In this gift, you will find items that will allow you to reconnect, literally, with the real world, to get out of your bubble and share. In short, for every gentleman in your life.

To become a gentleman, the subscription to Gentologie magazine.

Le-Club-by-Gentologie---Gift-Subscription---James-Bond

Gentology magazine is certainly the gateway and we firmly believe that our two first print magazines or the gift subscription would make great additions under the tree in 2022.

The Ultimate Gift List by Gentologie – Fashion

For 2023, the gentleman must elevate his style. Here are the options we offer.

Raising your shirt with cufflinks

What’s better than having clothes that fit you perfectly? Stop looking for a suit that fits you well off the rack, it’s very rare, sometimes it’s the top, sometimes it’s the bottom, there’s always something wrong. Having one made for you to your specifications is the ideal world.

You can have it made at Clusier, Holt Renfrew, Harry Rosen, Sartorialto, and many more. It won’t be for Christmas, it’s often a process that takes several weeks, or even longer for some designers.

We love the Lacoste collection here, but we prefer the ones “Made in France” as they say. The products are more expensive, because the cottons are more resistant and the seams better made. To be discovered. Also, this year’s collection is at the end of the line, so it’s discounted.

The Ultimate Gift List by Gentologie – Wines & Spirits

A little drink now and then is fine, but even better when it’s a fine spirit or a delicious champagne. Just remember to go in moderation.

Champagne

StoneHaven-Le-Manoir---The-Restaurant---Ruinart-Champagne-Blanc-de-Blancs

With Champagnes, it may be less of a gift, as he will certainly want to open it with you to celebrate. Look for special editions like Laurent-Perrier’s Blanc de Blancs or Pommery’s Louise. From Ruinart, the Blanc de Blanc is also very interesting. Otherwise, you can look at great vintages if you have the means. Let’s take for example the Cristal de Roederer, the Bollinger Grande Année, the Pol Roger Winston Churchill, or the Dom Pérignon.

I also recommend KRUG, but it is not available at the SAQ. You can find it in LCBO and BC Liquor Stores.
