No gift should be gendered. But when tasked with suggesting present ideas for this well-searched term, we dipped into the virtual menswear aisles of some of the internet's greatest online fashion stores to bring you pieces that they (or, to be honest, anyone) will love.
From keepsake-worthy jewelry and accessories to the one-off luxury garments that they'd probably never spend their own paycheck on, these are the gifts that will be remembered and used for many years to come.
To round up some extra-special gift ideas for men, or those who identify as masculine, we searched the internet for the latest and greatest in fashion. We picked out 10 goodies that'll bring much-needed holiday joy.
Scroll for some ideas on the best gifts for men, or anyone, this holiday season.
Smythson Leather Watch & Cufflink Box
A box that is perfect for stashing what it says on the box, or for the more clandestine males in your life, secret pleasures for post-work pastimes.
Mr. P Wool Scarf
Gifting can be a nightmare. Especially when you have a picky mister on your hands. Worry not - any of your many boyfs would be happy to don this monochromatic wonder. Simplicity often does it best.
Sacai Balaclava & Gloves Set
For the guy with a plan. Whether he's tryna rob the bank or go incognito in the streets, this white set will make him ... well, not that concealed, but very stylish nonetheless. Gift him something he can use - isn't that what they usually say is the best advice for gift-giving?
L'Atelier du Vin Magnum Carafe
A carafe is the item in a household that says, we can afford things that are absolutely useless, but they make us look better than you. When you wanna impress your guests, this is a strong representation of putting your money where your mouth is.
The Elder Statesman Checked Cashmere and Silk-Blend Bouclé Beanie
This checkered print is an absolute classic. It doesn't miss. Headwear especially is seeing a resurgence of this pattern, in all colours of the rainbow. This particular white-and-black combo is flawless.
BE@RBRICK + TMNT Donatello 1000% Printed PVC Figurine
Bearbricks are toys for boys. Ahem, or should we say, men. Or, to be truly inclusive. For all. Whatever your stance on the whole gendered gift giving theme, the fact remains: this lets you be playful, no matter your age. That is a beautiful sentiment for the time leading up to the holidays.
Boyhood Gingerbread Man Large Oak Figurine
Have you seen the Muffin Man? We can hear Shrek's gingerbread man shrilly shrieking this shanty at us now. An xmas classic? Maybe not, but a fan favorite for kids big and small.
Acne Studios Kameo Brushed-Knit Beanie
If you're doing secret santa at your office, here is a failsafe beanie in a very safe colorway, for anyone in your life who holds a lot of meaning or none at all. You're good either way.
Tom Ford Alec Patent-Leather Chelsea Boots
Patent leather has this look like water has been spilled all over it, and stuck. The sheen will give a pop of standout appeal to any xmas party your man might be attending. Preppy? Maybe. But for skulking in dark corners getting up to no good, it can't be beat.
The Elder Statesman Cashmere Half-Zip Sweater
If you're taking someone to see your parents this winter, this sweater may be the perfect fit. As such, it ticks all the boxes - respectable, simple, unfussy. No-one will bat an eyelid. Will they be on their best behavior? That part should have come from their parents.
Balenciaga Oversized Distressed Logo-Print Cotton-Jersey T-Shirt
If you need some tape in a gift-wrapping pinch, this top is a serious masking tape extragavanza - for the handyman in your life. Or the little prince that pretends he is one.
Bottega Veneta Cassette Mini Intrecciato Leather Messenger Bag
Those woven expressions are a classic for the label. No notes.
