The Ultimate JD Gift Guide 2023

Deck the Hauls: 

Your Ultimate JD Sports Canada Gift Guide

Welcome to the holiday season, the most wonderful — and let's be honest, sometimes the most stressful — time of the year! But don’t fret, JD Sports Canada has your back. We've taken the guesswork out of gift giving with our Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide, designed to make you the hero of the holidays. From the freshest kicks and the coziest loungewear to the perfect stocking stuffers, we've got something for everyone. So grab a cup of hot cocoa, put on your favourite holiday playlist, and let's dive into a world of gifts that are as unique as the people you're buying them for.

Whether you're shopping for the fashion connoisseur who's always ahead of the trends, the homebody who values comfort above all, or that enigmatic friend who seems to have everything (you know the one), our guide has you covered. We've scoured our shelves and sorted our top picks into categories that make sense, so you can spend less time searching and more time celebrating. 

Gifts for Homebodies

Get the homebodies in your life something soft and cozy to chill in while snuggling up inside. Think relaxed silhouettes, warm and comfortable knits, and elevated loungewear they can still wear to step outside. If you’re wanting homebody-approved apparel, check out Nike Club Fleece options, Jordan sweatpants and hoodies, or some comfy Hoodrich staples that are equally snug and stylish. And for an underrated house slipper this year, it’s gotta be the Crocs Classic Clog. Perfect mix of trendy and cushiony.

Gifts for Trendsetters

For the trendsetters on your list who love to change their look every season, we've kept tabs on what's hot so you can stay stress-free. Keep a lookout for Tommy Jeans and puffy jackets for those who love a ‘90s era look. Velour tracksuits also work for holiday parties and lounging alike, plus don’t forget about one of the biggest kick trends this year: metallic shine. And for the fall-back plan, pops of red are everywhere right now, so you really can’t go wrong with a statement accessory in the colour of the season.

Gifts for Sports Fans

Sports enthusiasts deserve gear that matches their passion. Signature basketball shoes from KD, Giannis Antetokounmpo, King James and more will capture the on-court intensity, while New Era beanies and caps let your sports fan tackle winter's chill while repping their favourite team. Elevate their style from court to street in classic jerseys from Nike, Jordan, or Mitchell & Ness if they’re into the retro vibes. We’ve also got PSG options for the soccer fans and Team Canada gear to keep things close to home.

Gifts for Fitness Fanatics

It’s no surprise that trying to keep up with fitness fanatics extends into the holidays. You might just pick up a new running habit yourself rushing around trying to get their favourite gear. Luckily, we’ve got a wide assortment of options that flex and breathe, wick away moisture and stay fresh during their sessions. Stock their sock drawer with Nike Dri-FIT training socks, gift the latest gym accessories for an easy win, or a new pair of workout shoes should keep ‘em training happy far beyond the holiday season.

Gifts for The Person That’s Impossible to Shop For

Figuring out what to gift the person who seems to have everything — or is notoriously difficult to shop for — can be a real challenge. Honestly, we wish you the best of luck with this one. That said, we've curated some options we think will make even the hardest-to-please individuals feel good and cozy this season. Like Nike AF1s, whether triple white or triple black — they go with everything. People love them, and you can't go wrong. Tech Fleece also got an update this year and we have options that are sleeker and warmer than ever. Very functional yet stylish, making them a tried and true staple that never fails.

Stocking Stuffers

Stocking stuffers are always fun. Small but thoughtful gifts that show your loved ones you’ve been thinking of ‘em. For this gift category, simple yet effective is the name of the game. First off, who doesn’t need new socks? With plenty of cuts, colours, and brands to choose from, you’re guaranteed to find a winner. Accessories are also a frontrunner here, with caps, crossbody bags, and cold weather accessories as the perfect balance of stylish and functional. Also to note, our own JD Sports sneaker cleaning products are a favourite among staff for their easy-to-use formulation.
