This year’s Highsnobiety Gift Guide is all about the presents that’ll make a difference in these new and strange times. From gifts that encourage connection with loved ones, to self-love suggestions you entirely deserve at the end of 2020.
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, we searched the internet for the latest and greatest in fashion. We picked out 13 goodies that'll bring much-needed joy at the end of an undoubtedly bad year.
Scroll for some ideas on the best gifts for men, or anyone, this holiday season.
This rugged timepiece is pretty much unbreakable and it's got the aesthetic to match. A 10-sided bezel secured by four visible screws and a bold yellow and black palette make this timepiece both tough and stylish.
NULABEL Topstitched Shirt Jacket
Topstitched Shirt Jacket
NULABEL's Topstitched Shirt Jacket takes cues from traditional workwear, standing as a super-clean, contemporary take on the chore jacket. Two oversized pockets to the chest punctuate the sharp, topstitched construction.

A trusty companion to the feet of workers and city walkers for more than 150 years, Blundstone boots come courtesy of Tasmania. Simple, sleek, and sturdy as hell – this is everything I want from a staple in my footwear rotation.
Maison Margiela Cardholder
Christmas is a time for keepsakes, and anything from the house of Maison Margiela is likely to fit that bill. A steel Margiela cardholder definitely will.
This watch is a beast. Rugged, ice-cold, and built to withstand a lot without being damaged. A proper wrist accessory.
Jay-Z CD Rug
If he's a Hova fan, there's no way you can go wrong with a rug-shaped version of one of his CDs. With home improvement likely to be on his agenda, this one is entirely appropriate.
NEIGHBORHOOD. Shirt Bag
Look, quarantine made us all do strange things. I now carry my essentials in a checked shirt. Maybe your loved one would like to do the same?
Converse x Brain Dead Chuck 70

Stone Island Primaloft Cap
Protect their neck while simultaneously saving yours from the bad gift-giver list with this next-level piece of headwear from Stone Island.

You simply can't have enough hoodies in the current climate. Comfy clothing is in high demand, too. It's a no-brainer.
Stüssy outerwear is strong AF this year, and it's also reasonably priced for a piece that they'll get a hell of a lot of wear out of.
The scarf has found a new lease of life this year, favored by those who like to double up on face protection or hide that sterile medical face mask. Whichever reason they're going for, this accessory from Comme is a way to do it well.
Carhartt WIP Blanket
If you'd have bought a blanket for anyone under the age of 30 last year, you might have been laughed out of the living room. But with hibernation on the agenda, this is now an essential.

and Wander makes cool things for going outside with. Remember the outside? Well anyway, use this as you scale the staircase and back again.
