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 one wants gifting to cause rifts at Christmas. And by rifts, we're talking about the sulking that follows your little bro getting a pair of socks from yours truly while your sister does laps around the garden on that new scooter you got her. To play it safe, it's smart to go with one category for all of your family. No risk of jealousy that way.

When going with this approach, you need a category that is diverse enough to cater to the varying tastes (and let's be honest — ages) of your nearest and dearest. There is perhaps no area of the shopping list better suited to this than sneakers. Don't believe us? For pops, there's a long list of chunky sneakers to pick from. While for your younger brother there's a wealth of retro reissues to advance his sneaker education.

Scroll on to shop sneaker gifts for the whole family.
