Gift giving season is officially here and if you’re stuck for ideas, we’ve got you. From last-minute gifts to what to get the sneaker obsessed in your life, The Highsnobiety Gift Guide has gathered the best products from across the internet, so no one will be disappointed when the wrapping comes off.
If recent seasons have shown us anything, it's that dads have had their style game on lock for decades and we're only just realizing it. Sorry pops. From chunky dad sneakers through to technical hiking gear and knitwear that, previously, we wouldn't have looked twice at, our wardrobes are evolving to become one and the same with our literal forefathers.
While you may have reservations about this, one thing's for sure: it makes buying holiday gifts for dad a whole lot easier. In 2021 you can realistically cop something that you would like to unwrap and that passes as a viable holiday gift for dad. If he doesn't like it, you, the heir, are next in line for that Arc'teryx. With gifts for dad on the agenda, we hit both streetwear and luxury retailers to shop for our loved ones.
