34 Excellent Gifts for the Excellent Men in Your Life

As a shopping editor, a question I find myself being asked again and again by friends, family, colleagues, and acquaintances alike is, "What do I buy the man in my life?" I don't like to generalise but, whether he's your dad, brother, best friend, or significant other, they can be more difficult to shop for. Why? I can only speak from personal experience, but the men I buy presents for are a little less picky, which in turn makes shopping for them a broad prospect. This, however, makes them no-less deserving of the consideration I'd ordinarily pour into gift-buying—it just means I might have to think outside of the box. 

As your self-appointed personal shopper, I'm here to give toy a helping hand where your male-orientated Christmas shopping is concerned. Below I've curated an edit of guaranteed-to-please Christmas gifts for men, which range from a quintessential (albeit seriously stylish) pair of new socks to cult-status trainers, all the way to sleek outerwear to grooming essentials—with a few curveballs thrown in for good surprise measure. So without further ado, scroll below to see and shop the best Christmas gifts for men.
