As a shopping editor, I find myself being asked again and again by friends, family, colleagues and acquaintances alike, "What do I buy the man in my life?" I don't like to generalise, but whether it's for your dad, brother, best friend or significant other, men 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 you 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.
