PLEASE READ THIS FIRST: Some of your non-Canadian friends might also like the gift ideas below. And also, I know things people find offensive this year alone are as high as the Mt. Everest or as many as the stars in the galaxy, but keep in mind that this post was created with no intent to disrespect but out of love and care to give you something to smile. And to make you buy a hilarious gift for a friend. Hope you enjoy!
For those who don’t know him yet, Justin Trudeau is Canada’s new Prime Minister — yes, he’s a politician, not the next Ryan Gosling Canadian export. He entered our
erotic dreams conscious minds the moment he won the election last October 2015, and people are very excited — even people who don’t live in Canada or have any knowledge of Canadian politics. This sudden interest in the Canadian parliament have something to do with the fact that Trudeau is kind of foxy, in a wholesome, Canadian way. But I’m not Canadian and it’s not everyday I objectify men on my blog so before I reveal the gift ideas, here are 10 reasons why he is interesting:
1. His initials are J.T.
Many good things also share these initials: Justin Timberlake, Justin Theroux,
Justin Bieber Jelly [on] Toast. And just like those first two men mentioned, he has movie star looks.
2. He was 1/2 of the #APECHottie
One does not usually care about the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit but this year got really interesting. Not only because it was hosted in my country, but social media got crazy with the so-called #APECHottie. It was a battle (by their admirers) between the Mexican Papi aka President Enrique Pena Nieto and the Canadian Bae PM Justin Trudeau.
3. He embraces all culture
…and an awesome dancer! As evidenced by this video of Trudeau getting down at an India-Canada Association of Montreal event, he is committed to honoring traditions and festive events of other cultures. He is also committed to hitting the dance floor like a goddamn maniac.
4. He striptease for charity
Although he only removed his neck tie, jacket and shirt, he was able to raise $1900 (I presume Canadian dollars) for the Canadian Liver Foundation’s “What a Girl Wants” fundraiser.
5. He boxes for charity
Striptease wasn’t enough, he also had a charity boxing match against Patrick Brazeau for the cancer charity “Fight for the Cure”. Some may argue that those charity stuff he did may be part of his long-term plan for his campaign but even if it was true, c’mon! Who campaigns like that?!
6. Sometimes, he’s a cosplayer
He is a High School Drama and English teacher, so dressing up in a costume is totally normal. Look at his family Christmas card in which they all wore coyote fur parkas. Or that time he dressed up as a pirate for the Montreal Movember gala in 2010. How whimsical and fun.
7. He’s pro choice
He famously said, “It is not for any government to legislate what a woman chooses to do with her body. And that is the bottom line.”
8. He’s pro pot
Trudeau has said: “We will legalize, regulate, and restrict access to marijuana. Canada’s current system of marijuana prohibition does not work. It does not prevent young people from using marijuana and too many Canadians end up with criminal records for possessing small amounts of the drug.” He even admitted to Huffington Post Canada that he once “had a puff,” which is basically politician code for “I’m probably high right now.” Man loves weed. We love men who love weed.
9. He’s a feminist. Enough said.
I am a feminist. I’m proud to be a feminist. #upfordebate

10. He’s got a tattoo!
I don’t have anything against tattoos, I like it, but PM Justin Trudeau’s tattoo is really bad! But it’s a reminder that he isn’t afraid to make mistakes or take risks. At 40, he added that Raven to it (he’s 43 now by the way). That shows a commitment to improving things… or trying to. And I guess he could be a role model too for young people to take time on deciding what tattoo to get.
BONUS: Great Hair and Sense of Humor
As seen on this promotional video for his charity boxing match with conservative Senator Patrick Brazeau, Justin has great hair and sense of humor. Whatever crap and jokes the host gave him, he has a witty response. Just in case you’re wondering, the charity boxing match has high stakes too: pride, glory and their hair. Justin and Patrick both had gorgeous long hair, and the looser has to cut their hair.
The season for giving is just around the corner and it’s time to get cracking on sourcing for presents. That is why for the next few weeks Style Vanity will provide Christmas gift ideas for every person in your life. And today, we’re featuring gift ideas for your Canadian friend who loves Justin Trudeau, or just likes him even they’re not Canadians.
1. Dreamy Trudeau Sweater ($45): A Canadian company, Shelfies, brought our erotica dreams to life with the “The Dreamy Trudeau Sweater,” a high-quality piece of knitwear featuring the Prime Minister of Hunk [Canada] astride a steed, set against the backdrop of a mystical moor. It’s like he rode straight out my libidinous Brontë fanfic and onto a comfortable garment. A shirtless Trudeau and other styles are also available. But hurry, I heard this is now a pre-order because they sold out fast!
2. I Heart Justin Trudeau T-Shirt ($25): If the dreamy sweatshirt is too much, maybe this one will do.
3. Common Ground by Justin Trudeau ($CDN$21): This one is not exactly a funny give, but something to read when you’re not doing anything. This is a memoir written by Trudeau himself.
