Last Minute Gift Ideas for Him from DK Canada

Now before you all say these are gifts for men and women, you are correct. However when I say “him” I am referring to the men on my list. I think these would make great Christmas gifts for them. I have car lovers, handy men and history buffs on my list. The books from DK Canada are always top notch quality and the pictures so clear and bright.

The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Auto Repair Illustrated covers everything readers need to know about their automobiles, from the tires up. Tailor-made for true novices, it shows them how to make some of the most basic repairs themselves—and teaches them enough to feel confident that they’ll never be taken for a ride by a mechanic again.

Using over 3,500 full-colour photographs and diagrams, this updated and expanded edition of Do It Yourself  combines “know-how” information which complies to all Canadian building codes  and weather considerations with signature DK “show-how” instruction and photography.  This is the ultimate visual guide to every aspect of home improvement for Canadians. 


Featuring the largest and most diverse range of sports of any comparable book—more than 200 in all—this up-to-date edition of The Sports Book presents information sourced from leading experts and sports-governing bodies around the world to give you the most comprehensive book on sports ever to hit the market. 


The History Book is a blast from the past, revealing what life was like for our ancestors and how we got to the place we are now. Showing the key events in history as they’ve never been seen before – using cutting edge graphics and unlikely contexts to complement each historical period – this wild ride through the past uses punchy, irreverent text to bring the past to life. From the Stone Age to the Digital Age you’ll find it all in The History Book!


DK Canada books can be purchased in book stores Canada wide. Books can be ordered online as well. I think these would be a great add on to any gift for him this holiday season. The perfect reference books or coffee table books. Or maybe even a book for them to enjoy while sitting on their thrown 😉
