Buying gifts for people feels great, as does receiving them. By this logic, we can deduce that the greatest adrenalin rush ultimately comes from something known as “buying gifts for yourself,” which is a trap we all fall into more frequently during this time of year.

May my retail tour-de-force pave the way to the best gifts to buy yourself this holiday.

COMME des GARÇONS SHIRT Jacquard Wool Blend Knit Sweater

Jacquard Wool Blend Knit Sweater

COMME des GARÇONS SHIRT

$410
Buy at Luisaviaroma

FREE SHIPPING & RETURN

This purchase was inevitable. I should’ve known better than to go shopping for a holiday sweater unsupervised, especially after revealing my love for all things knitted. As confused as a reindeer in the headlights, I transitioned from having my heart set on buying a questionably-knitted creation for a distant relative, to leaving the store with this playful number from COMME des GARÇONS SHIRT.

Falke Techno T-Shirt

Techno T-Shirt

Falke

$102
Buy at Luisaviaroma

FREE SHIPPING & RETURN

Among other things, German brand Falke is particularly well-known for its socks. And as socks are a go-to stocking stuffer for me, if something like the Techno T-shirt here appears while I am dutifully shopping for said socks, somebody’s going to have cold feet this December.

Nike ACG PrimaLoft Trail Pants

ACG PrimaLoft Trail Pants

Nike

$151
Buy at Luisaviaroma

FREE SHIPPING & RETURN

In an attempt to sympathize with, and support the New Year’s resolutions of my family, I went out on the hunt for some sporty silhouettes. After searching high and low, the best I was able leave the store with was a pair of Nike ACG PrimaLoft Trail Pants for yours truly.

AFFIX x ASICS GEL-Kinsei OG GORE-TEX Sneakers

GEL-Kinsei OG GORE-TEX Sneakers

AFFIX x ASICS

$260
Buy at Luisaviaroma

FREE SHIPPING & RETURN

Much like the ACG pants above, I was met with a similar ultimatum when these AFFIX x ASICS GEL-Kinsei OG “GORE-TEX” sneakers crossed my path. To justify my ill-founded decision, I truly believe being fit is a mindset, so to all New Year’s revolutionaries, you don’t really need the sneakers… not as much as I do or did anyway.

GCDS Classic Wool Blend Balaclava

Classic GCDS Wool Blend Balaclava

GCDS

$114
Buy at Luisaviaroma

FREE SHIPPING & RETURN

As much as I am ashamed of having made it this far without actually buying a single thing for my family or friends, this balaclava from GCDS will help hide my shame.

Stone Island Cotton Blend Pistol Carrier

Cotton Blend Pistol Carrier

Stone Island

$275
Buy at Luisaviaroma

FREE SHIPPING & RETURN

The best thing about this product is that no-one needs to know you ever bought it. Stone Island’s Cotton Blend Pistol Carrier is the ideal undercover purchase.

RETROSUPERFUTURE Roma 3627 Acetate Sunglasses

Roma 3627 Acetate Sunglasses

RETROSUPERFUTURE

$190
Buy at Luisaviaroma

FREE SHIPPING & RETURN

More jawnz to help hide your shame. Sending a guy like me into a place full of seemingly unnecessary goods i.e. a sunglasses store in the middle of Berlin’s winter, will only heighten my desire to obtain something… anything. The block-like frame of RETROSUPERFUTURE’s Roma 3627 Acetate Sunglasses warm my heart with thoughts of how good I’m going to look next summer.

Jil Sander Intarsia & Jacquard Cotton Belt

Intarsia & Jacquard Cotton Belt

Jil Sander

$306
Buy at Luisaviaroma

FREE SHIPPING & RETURN

I really like Jil Sander, but the chances of me ever going into a store to buy something for myself are slim. Unless of course its a piece so unique… so eye-catching… so much like this cotton belt!

Medicom Toy “Marvin The Martian” 100% & 400% [email protected]

“Marvin The Martian” 100% & 400% Be@rbricks

Medicom Toy

$264
Buy at Luisaviaroma

FREE SHIPPING & RETURN

At this point, you’re all probably tired of my excuses. That being said, this “Marvin The Martian” [email protected] set is the perfect “I-bought-this-for-us-gift.” Your unlucky gift receiver will never know.

Marni Moon Market Iron & PVC Rocket

Moon Market Iron & PVC Rocket

Marni

$153
Buy at Luisaviaroma

FREE SHIPPING & RETURN

I’ll level with you… I’m not entirely sure what this is, but it has something about it that makes me want it. Better still, its purchase can be justified using the same excuse as above. Plus, who wouldn’t want a room full of Marni decorations anyway?
