Christmas is quickly approaching, so it’s time to start thinking about presents. Whether you’re buying for a loved one or someone in a secret santa who you don’t know very well, you have plenty of options. No matter what your budget is, you will definitely find the perfect gift here! If you’re tired of buying boring Christmas presents, make things more exciting with these fashionable Christmas gift ideas for men!
Christmas Gift Ideas For Men
1. Traditional Brogues
If you’re buying for someone who loves a formal dress code, a pair of traditional brogues will be perfect. Go for a brown shade if they prefer wearing navy or neutral colors, or black if they prefer wearing black, grey, and white. You can also dress brogues down with jeans and a blazer or you can go fully formal with a suit. Brogues can act as the perfect in-between shoe for any occasion.
2. A Classic Overcoat
Continuing with the more formal theme, a classic overcoat is a fantastic present. Again, this present is great as an overcoat can be so diverse. Whether you want to dress up a pair of jeans and a t-shirt for a lunch out or wear it over a suit in the winter months, it will work. Overcoats come in all kinds of colors and styles, with options available for every budget. This will become a staple in any wardrobe, so keeping things simple with the color and style might be the best way to go.
3. A Comfy Tracksuit
When it comes to Christmas gifts, you can’t beat classic plain tracksuits. Giving someone something comfortable yet stylish to wear on Christmas day, as well as throughout the rest of the colder months, is ideal. Then, when the weather starts to warm up again, the joggers could be worn with a t-shirt or the hoodie could be worn with shorts. It is such a simple and diverse gift that is easy to get right, no matter how particular someone is!
4. Fancy Socks
The next couple of gifts are great for people who you might not know quite as well, or for people you don’t feel as confident buying clothes for! You really can’t go wrong with a good pair of socks. Luxury brands offer divine socks that are comfortable and extremely stylish, however if this isn’t in your budget, you won’t be missing out. Be brave and opt for some bright and garish socks to brighten things up or go a bit more subtle with greys and blacks. The size ranges are usually pretty wide so they should fit, however send a gift receipt just in case.
5. Checkered Scarf
Another great option for someone you don’t feel comfortable buying clothes for would be a checkered scarf. It is an essential item in any winter wardrobe so you know it will definitely get used! For something more simple, try a navy and white scarf or maybe a mustard colour for something brighter. It’s hard to go wrong when it comes to a scarf as there are so many ways to style it, making it the perfect gift or stocking filler.
If you’re really stuck, vouchers for clothes shops are always a good way to go. If you’re buying for someone younger, shops like Zara, River Island and Topshop will be full of on-fashion clothes they can pick out themselves if you aren’t confident buying them yourself. For older people, the variety in department stores like John Lewis, Debenhams or House of Fraser will mean they can find the perfect gift themselves. Some people have the impression that vouchers are the easy way out, however I have always believed that it is a more thoughtful option that will help people pick out something they will make use of.
7. Leather Holdall Bag
When you’re wanting to spend slightly more on someone, leather holdall bags are a really good choice. Keep it simple with either a tan or black colour to ensure it goes with every outfit. The uses of holdall bags are endless, as they can be used for the gym, weekends away and business trips to name a few! Rather than having a few different bags to juggle, buying a holdall for someone will ensure everything will be neat in one place to make life much easier.
8. Blacked Out Watch
Another accessory that will be a crowd pleaser is a blacked-out watch. A fully black watch is becoming increasingly popular, with brands like Hublot, Tag Heuer, Rolex and Omega all offering their own designer options. However, most of us don’t have thousands to spend, so luckily there are plenty of options starting from about £50. This watch will make a classy addition to any outfit and can be worn on any occasion.
9. Triple White Trainers
For someone who is more into casual fashion, a pair of triple white trainers would make a great present. It is always good to have a simple pair of trainers that will go with any outfit in your wardrobe and white trainers are a classic that will never go out of style. It is advisable to only opt for this if you know the person’s fashion sense well, as it is quite difficult to get this right if someone is a major trainer lover!
Whilst cufflinks are obviously practical, they are seen as accessories to most people. They can bring an outfit together and add something special. It may take you some time to pick out the perfect pair as your options really are endless. You could get something personalized with a meaningful word or set of initials or choose a simple silver pair for something classic. If you’re feeling brave, go for something completely unique with the flag of their country or even funny animals. Every man needs a good pair of cufflinks, so this will always be a winner.
11. A Beanie
For a simple and stylish winter hat, why not buy someone a beanie? They’re practical, stylish and definitely on-trend. Bobble hats are a thing of the past, so beanies are the way to go. This is the perfect hat for everyone, even for people who don’t suit hats! If you decided to also buy a checkered scarf as suggested above, colour coordinate the two for the perfect gift.
12. Pocket Squares
Some people love to take any outfit to the next level, so if you have someone in mind who likes to make a statement, go for a pocket square. In the past, they had been an essential item when having guests over in a formal setting, however, they are becoming more and more popular in everyday working settings! Chevron, plaid, floral, or paisley are all bold patterns that would compliment a plain suit and single color tie really well. There are some very bold options out there if you’re feeling adventurous!
