CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR MEN: THE ULTIMATE GUIDE

Slogging round the stores, dodging the wind and rain, fighting off other customers so you can get the last big Toblerone... It’s tough out there when it comes to buying gifts for men.

This year our curators have done the hard work for you, sourcing only the most stylish design-led gifts from around the world and matching them to the personality types of the men in your life.

Whether you’re buying for Mister Tech, Mister Vintage or even - poor you - Mister Grumpy, we’ve got your back, helping you tick off the Christmas gift list for boyfriends, husbands, dads and grandads in record time.

Let’s get started...

MISTER COOL

Think: Tom Hardy... He’s chilled, he’s confident and he knows what he likes. Don’t go too flashy but do make sure your gift has a great design aesthetic right out of the box. Australia’s Hunter Lab and NYC’s Blind Barber create high quality, beautifully-designed grooming products that will delight all his senses. Meanwhile inventive Brooklyn chocolate maker Mast make a great range with beautiful design - Smoke is a flavour he’ll never have tasted before.

MISTER ADVENTURE

Think: Bear Grylls... If he loves getting outdoors and challenging himself then perhaps wood chopping, stacking and drying could become his next obsession - yes really! With over 500,000 copies sold the new guide on this outdoor pursuit is a sure fire hit. If you still want him to look sharp after all that adventure consider Portland England’s skin and shave products, made in small batches in the UK and specially designed to cope with harsh outdoor conditions. Plus Folk’s super-thick winter socks - the most stylish around.

MISTER VINTAGE

Think: Cillian Murphy... Don’t spend hours in vintage shops... you might end up more ‘fancy dress’ than ‘vintage chic’. Instead nod to the golden age of style with a silver and brown leather watch by Wardour & Brewer. They take a love of vintage and combine it with a minimalist Scandinavian twist, while the classic Hanky by small Canadian design studio rcboisjoli is a must-have for any modern gent. Is he a cyclist? If so he’ll love a vintage brass bike bell. Ding-Ding.

MISTER ROCK N ROLL

Think: Kit Harrington... If he likes his tastes dark and stormy combine playful rockabilly design with brooding black and pops of white or gold. Victorian-inspired black candles look great in any rocker's bedroom, while the tattoo-inspired Octopus mug is a kitchen must-have. Add a trendy pair of black Kreafunk wireless headphones with gold trim to finish off the look.

MISTER DAPPER

Think: Tom Hiddleston... If he’s got the dashing suit and the dashing smile he’s most likely a fan of dashing accessories too, so consider high-end finishing touches like a crisp rose gold and black leather watch from Wardour & Brewer. The Gentlemen’s Hardware brass manicure kit will keep his hands looking as good as his outfit, and likewise a classic men’s shoe shine kit will keep his footwear on point.

MISTER MINIMAL

Think: Ryan Gosling... If he’s a fan of clean lines and minimalist design he’ll love Hunter Lab’s natural skincare range with matte black packaging - an instant design classic, and rare too, since we import directly from Hunter HQ in Australia. Add a unique twist to his home with candles set in concrete with a geometric colour pop are a minimalist showstopper, while Scandinavian-inspired footware from Folk socks provide the ultimate in minimalist chic.

MISTER TECH

Think: Tesla's Elon Musk... Buying technology for tech fans can be tricky, so we’d avoid going cutting edge. Instead flip it the other way and go for those vintage touches that are a must in any trendy Silicone Valley office. Our gold-edged letter board will playfully style up his workspace, while a Goldbar Pen by Caran d’Ache will be perfect for signing his million dollar contracts. And don’t forget the original gadget - the gentleman’s watch. We’d recommend a silver mesh from Komono.

MISTER BEARD

Think: George Clooney... A beard is a lifelong project and we certainly take it seriously in our Grooming collection. Favourites include Portland England’s Beard Cologne & Conditioning Oil with its gold-embossed box and leather top, Gentlemen's Hardware shaving brush with stand and a classic shaving soap with enamel tin for that truly old school shave, just like grandad used to do.

MISTER GRUMPY

Think: Jack Dee... He’s a bit of a git but that’s ok, you still love him, right? Give him something to really complain about with the inside story of Brexit, then get him beating the family in a quiz-athon that gets him using his general knowledge to the full. Then top it all off with a special treat - Artisan du Chocolat's liquid-centred No1 Sea Salted Caramels, invented in 2002 for Gordon Ramsay's restaurant at Claridges - and he might even crack a smile before bedtime.

MISTER INTELLECTUAL

Think: Stephen Fry... If he’s considered and contemplative give him something that will feed his mind, like the fascinating book Speeches that Changed the World, featuring expert analysis of how these powerful moments in history shaped our society. Enhance his surroundings with our minimalist engineer-inspired airship print with gold detail - great for the thinking man’s study or office. Then finally test his mettle with this tricky, and rather beautiful, gradient puzzle.

MISTER COMING-OF-AGE

Think: Outnumbered's Tyger Drew Honey... If he’s growing up fast it’s time to treat him like a man. He’s sure to love the ‘man stuff’ he’s always dreamed, so think bottle openers, shaving tools like Gentlemen's Hardware traditional shave set or Ridley’s Texas Hold ‘Em poker set. Alongside all that there’s still room for a bit (ok a lot) of fun with the hilarious My Dad Wrote a Porno annotated book, based on the #1 smash hit podcast about a man whose dad decides to become a writer of terrible erotic fiction (cringe!).

HOW TO BUY GIFTS FOR A… DAD

Not content with getting the biggest portion at dinner, Dads also want great gifts without actually giving you the hints you need to get it right. Fear not, we've got your back.

TOP 3 TIPS WHEN BUYING FOR A DAD:

1. PICK A SIDE TO CELEBRATE

Your dad has a lifetime of wisdom and experience. So what do you want to celebrate? His funny side, his nerdiness, his style… Focusing on an element of his character specifically will stop you buying those generic gifts. 

2. START WITH A TREAT HE’LL LOVE

Open with something you know he’ll love. It could be a book you know he’ll devour or chocolate treats that you know he’ll, well, devour. For example, if he always orders salted caramel desserts go for a salted caramel chocolate bar. If he bangs on about politics get him an analysis of Brexit. It'll remind him you know him so well.

3. INTRODUCE HIM TO SOMETHING NEW

Then bang, the switcheroo - You introduce him to a brand or product he’s never tried before. Being his son or daughter you know him well and are in touch with current trends, meaning he'll trust you if you help him take a little risk. He'll love the compliments he gets for keeping it fresh, and proudly telling others you bought it for him.

HOW TO BUY GIFTS FOR A… BOYFRIEND

So you’ve got yourself a dashing man who thinks you’re hot stuff. Good start.  

Now comes the tricky bit - buying the gift. Been dating a couple of months and you might be unsure what your gift says about your intentions for the future... Been dating a year and you’ll have a list as long as your arm and won’t know where to stop!

Sometimes we all need a little help. So we’ve put together our top tips and price guide to help you find that perfect gift with ease...

TOP 3 TIPS BUYING FOR A BOYFRIEND:

1. START USEFUL

Men can be practical beasts so start with something he’s going to use. Think personal items like wallets, shaving tools or desk items. Focus on upgrading the things he values most - The more he interacts with your gift, the more he’ll think of your relationship and smile.

2. MIX FUN WITH GREAT DESIGN

New relationships are awesome, so don’t be overly serious. Add sweet treats, reference in-jokes or consider buying lots of small things rather than one single item (because, be honest, we all love unwrapping things). If it’s still relatively early days choose gifts with great design and it’ll keep your cool points running high.

3. BE GENEROUS... BUT APPROPRIATE

Length of relationship matters, so we’ve created a gift guide below for what might be appropriate to spend. Every person is different so feel free to go off-piste… Just don’t suggest shelling out £1,000 when you’ve only been dating two weeks. You’re not a lottery winner. (Unless you are a lottery winner in which case carry on, you lucky devil.)
