Shopping for the man in your life is not always an easy task, but it’ll be at lot easier this season thanks to the opening of a first-ever men’s magazine pop-up store in Chicago.
Through Dec. 21, lifestyle magazine Men’s Journal hosts the Men’s Journal Collection at the 900 North Michigan Shops, an interactive retail showcase of this year’s hottest gear.
Inside, expect to find products to appease the guy on your holiday shopping list. The shop features gift ideas from the 2011 “Gear of the Year” list, as well as an array of items from categories including adventure, electronics, fitness, style and travel. The gifts can be ordered online at kiosks throughout the store.
And if you want to give your guy a sneak peak at some of the items so he can hint at his favorites beforehand, have him log on to mensjournal.com/collection to explore the virtual edition of the store where he can view all of the items, create a custom “wish list” and share content on Facebook and Twitter.
The Men’s Journal pop-up shop’s operating hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday-Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and 11 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
