Men are sometimes deceptively difficult to shop for—perhaps the man in question has no discernible style of which to speak, his wishlist includes gadgets only Kylie Jenner could afford to buy for him or you’re having a difficult time resisting the urge to gift him socks because for crying out loud, he doesn’t own a single matching pair. Whatever the scenario, we can help; here, our 2016 gift curation for all of the men in you life (socks not included, though you can find some cute ones for yourself here).
Great Gifts For All Your Guys
ARCADY Leather Bomber Jacket
Here's hoping whoever you end up buying this lamb leather, cashmere-lined jacket for is around your size, as this is most certainly one piece we want to borrow from the boys.
ARCADY Leather Bomber Jacket, $1700
Bespoke Post Refresh Dopp Kit
Few things in life feel better to world-weary travelers than a dopp kit freshly stocked with all the most luxurious products. This one comes with everything from handmade soap to detox multivitamins, and is perfect for the man who spends more time in the air than he does on land.
Buck Mason Raglan Sweatshirt
If the guy for whom you're shopping could use a little wardrobe update but isn't exactly a fashion guy, anything from Buck Mason is likely to be a safe bet. We love this Raglan Sweater as an easy gift for our significant others, mostly because we plan on "getting cold" in their company often this winter.
Dollar Shave Club Subscription
If you can believe it, Dollar Shave Club sold for $1 billion earlier this year. Why? Because most men need to shave, love convenience and hate shopping, so the company's monthly razor subscription box is sheer (if simple) genius. You can send someone three-months worth for $45 or a year's worth for $100.
Dollar Shave Club Subscription, $45-$100
Everlane The Dipped Weekender
Let's be honest—this is the perfect gift for the man who embarrasses you when you travel, mostly because he carries his belongings in a ratty old backpack leftover from his heyday as a college frat boy. Luckily, this bag is timeless, so he can hold onto it for another twenty years without causing shame to you and yours.
Jason Markk for J. Crew Sneaker-Cleaning Kit
This J. Crew-exclusive sneaker-cleaning kit from Jason Markk is the perfect gift for the footwear fanatics in your life—it comes with shoe cleaner, repel, cleaning cloth, hog bristle, horse hair brush and gum eraser.
Miansai M12 Swiss Stainless-Steel Watch
This everyday watch will be one he keeps until he can longer tell time (or, until clocks have been digitally implanted into our wrists, at least).
AETHER Crosby Jacket
The Crosby jacket is perfect for cold-climate-dwelling men, or for those who travel frequently to destinations known for chilly temps. It features a 100% wool outer exterior, a removable liner and is both water and wind resistant.
AETHER Crosby Jacket, $825
Mon Oncle Grill BBQ V2
Maybe you know a man who is renown for his BBQ skills, and wants to take his show on the road (around the neighborhood, that is). Here, the chicest portable BBQ we've ever seen.
Mon Oncle Grill BBQ V2, $375
Club Monaco Marled Sweatpant
We aren't the only ones who've replaced nightly outings with Netflix-and-chill binges. Give your favorite couch potato a lazy day option that doesn't sacrifice style for comfort.
Club Monaco Marled Sweatpant, $129.50
Timberland Britton Hill Plain-Toe Waterproof Boots
Why get him something that will sit on his shelf when you can instead gift him a pair of these Timberlands, which he'll wear every day this winter?
Master & Dynamic M60 Over-Ear Wireless Headphones
Headphone jacks are going to be so 2016, so help the men in your life transition into the future with these investment-worthy wireless over-ear headphones. They feature patent-pending stainless steel componentry and best-in-class signal range.
Shinola The Runwell White Oak Wood Turntable
If you are looking to gain favor with someone special this holiday season, this is the gift through which to do it (bonus points if he's specifically a Shinola fan). The Runwell is a limited-edition piece, only 500 of which were produced.
Raen Wiley Sunglasses
There's no such thing as having too many pairs of sunglasses, so this gift is sure to please even the most difficult of gift recipients. RAEN's website allows you to shop by face shape—these Wiley Square Sunglasses work best on round and oval faces.
Tom Dixon Tank Whiskey Decanter
This gorgeous decanter is mouth-blown and hand-painted and will elevate bar carts and cocktail hours, whether in the office or at home.
Three Jerks The Original Filet Mignon Beef Jerky
So you don't cook and/or can't afford to buy your man a steak... no biggie, as we think this filet mignon jerky would be cute gifted alongside a bottle of (cheap) red wine. You can also gift him a monthly subscription, which we think might end up being the most appreciated $7.64 a month you've ever spent.
Paul Smith London Extra Trim Fit Embroidered Cactus Dress Shirt
Because succulents always win Instagram.
Simone LeBlanc A Fine Cocktail + Bourbon Gift Box
Indulge his Don Draper fantasies (and maybe, yours) via this sophisticated cocktail-themed box from Simone LeBlanc. It includes a bottle of Hudson Bourbon, a 5-piece brass barware set, cocktail cherries, bitters, suede coasters and more.
The Lost Explorer Traveler Bag
The Lost Explorer is a newfound obsession of ours, one which "crafts, curates and collaborates on products that are imbued with the spirit of adventure." Any man in your life who likes to "live curiously" will make great use of this souped-up backpack, which is water resistant yet features space for a hanging suit jacket—our kinda bag for our kinda guy.
Hugo Boss BOSS The Scent
When in doubt, one can never go wrong with a cologne. With subtle notes of lavender and a punch of leather, this is a scent any man will appreciate now and for months to come.
