08 Dec 5 Cool Vancouver Shops That Offer On-Demand Delivery
Masc is short for masculine, and if you are a man, then you definitely need to get here. Located in the heart of Yaletown, just up the street from the famous Farzad’s Barbershop, Masc has pretty much everything a dude needs to take care of himself. Everything is covered: face, body, beard, hair, fragrance, lifestyle. They carry over 85 different brands of grooming products, many of them local or Canadian-made, to make you feel, look, and smell good. One unique aspect of Masc is their “problem solver” section, where men can safely find a myriad of “guy problems:” acne, wrinkles, dandruff, thinning hair, and body odour. Call it therapy: a one stop man shop that will solve your problems.

Companies just don’t come much cooler than Reclaimed Print. Not only do they produce and sell some crazy awesome artwork and home decor, every single product is made with locally-soured and sustainable wood. And it’s all Canadian. From maps to mounted quotes, from postcards to pennants, you are guaranteed of finding something that catches your eye. Reclaimed Print has a showroom located smack dab between two of Vancouver’s funkiest neighbourhoods: Commercial Drive and Strathcona. But their website is a must-visit, with all of their products separated into categories like “hipster,” “man cave,” and “Canadian.” Surfing doesn’t get much cooler than that.
You want to buy some small batch eau de cologne spray made in Harlem, NY? What about some chocolate from LA, once favoured by Marilyn Munroe and Elvis Presley?

From wireless headphones to flax linen sheets to Monocle Travel Guides, if you can’t find the perfect gift at Litchfield, then you need to check yourself. At the very least, make sure you pick up the Yumaki Amberflex toothbrush, made with biodegradable sugar cane plastic and bamboo charcoal blended nylon bristles. Brushing your teeth will never be the same.
