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.
