It’s less than three weeks until Christmas and the gift buying pressure is on. Choosing the right gift for the right person is hard, particularly when you’re shopping for the opposite sex. Here are some gift ideas for men to get you started on that path. The best part is all these items can be bought online, so you don’t have to brave the holiday shopping crowds. The women’s edition is coming next week!
1. Style boxes, The Tie Bar
These style boxes turn uninspiring but practical items like ties and socks into personalized and thoughtful gifts. Tailored to the preferences of the wearer, they also come with matching clasps and pins. Included in the limited edition sets by style bloggers are suggestions on how to wear the items, making them the ultimate gift for fashion-savvy friends or colleagues.
2. Knit and outerwear, Combatant Gentlemen
Winter wear this time of the year is the gift that keeps on giving. And is there really such a thing as too much cashmere? Solid color sweaters and cardigans are safe gift choices, and a trusty winter coat ranks highly on everyone’s list too.
3. Luxury swimwear, Retromarine
Maybe we don’t all want to be reminded of how cold it is outside. These fashionable swim shorts will do just the trick. Made from intelligent fabric that’s fast-drying and UV-protected, these shorts are available in a range of striking colors and patterns.
4. No. 25 Briefcase, Passavant and Lee
This one comes with a hefty price tag but you bet it will make an impressive gift. A work of fine craftsmanship, the briefcase is made of aircraft grade aluminum and covered in full grain leather. For a cheaper option, you might want to consider Passavant and Lee’s leather wallets, crafted from Italian leather and entirely handmade.
5. Touring Jackets, W.R.K.
W.R.K. is a New York-based brand known for bridging aesthetics and functionality, and this jacket is the essence of that. Weather-resistant and durable, the jacket can be worn year-round but has none of the bulk and blandness associated with typical utility jackets. A must-have in every man’s closet!
