12 Stylish Holiday Gifts For Guys Who Have Everything
From stylish sneakers to a new turntable and whiskey, you’ll find something for everyone on your list.
When you survey the landscape of your life, or that of the stylish gentlemen in your life, what do you see? A sense of care, style and an appreciation for the finer things in life, yes? That sets the bar pretty high when it comes to shopping for holiday gifts, but that’s not a bad thing.
We say, embrace that challenge and rise to the occasion with an unexpected gift, a stylish splurge or something distinctly memorable (or better still, a gift that hits the mark in all three categories). Be they a whiskey enthusiast, a watch lover or someone with a covetable vinyl collection, a gift that’s both an experience and a nod to their personal taste goes a long way.
Here’s 12 can’t-miss gifts for the guy who’s got, well, pretty much everything.
Todd Snyder City Gym Sneakers
Menswear kingpin Todd Snyder’s limited-edition New Balance 237 “City Gym” pays tribute to a time when the palette for workout clothes was indisputably gray (think Stallone’s running attire in the first Rocky movie). Gray has never looked cooler than on this waffle- treaded throwback to ’70s-era runners. Using the silhouette of the New Balance 237, Snyder’s latest take includes an oversized, chenille ‘N’, a satin-and-suede body, a tongue layered in ripstop nylon, and an interior lined in sweatshirt-inspired terry cloth. $130
James Brand Barnes Damasteel Knife
Every guy’s daily carry or toolbox deserves an extremely well-made, uniquely tough pocket knife built to last. This one from famed EDC maker James Brand features a blade made with eye-catching, hard-working damasteel, unlike anything in his daily haul to date. $1,250
Hestra Olav Gloves
Staying warm this winter doesn’t have to purely be a utilitarian pursuit. You can add a dash of style (and yes, critical warmth) to any ensemble with these handsome leather gloves from stalwart accessories maker Hestra (they know a thing or two about craftsmanship). $145
Seiko Hybrid Diver 40th Anniversary Edition
The rugged outdoorsman in your life will appreciate this tough-as-nails, revamped take on a classic Seiko diver. It’s sporty enough for the sea and stylish enough to team with a flannel shirt and blue jeans back on dry land this winter (and well beyond). $730
TUMI X McLaren Expandable 4-Wheeled Carry-On
Luggage giant TUMI’s elegant limited-edition collab with luxury automaker McLaren produces supercar-inspired luggage that’s definitely fit for first class. This ultra durable carry-on boasts a sleek silhouette, CX6 carbon fiber accents and compression straps that take design cues from McLaren’s five-point harness. $1,695.
WhistlePig 10-Year Rye Whiskey
While the 10-year rye contained within is undoubtedly delightful, it’s the piggy bank-style presentation that’s the real winner here. It also marks a decade since WhistlePig’s famed rye (with a long and spicy finish) won its first major award. We’ll drink to that. $200
Randolph White Gold Aviator Sunglasses
Upgrade your mil-spec sunglasses game with these 23-karat White Gold aviators from Randolph. These striking shades boasts the American brand’s proprietary Skytec Glass Lenses with a mirrored Cobalt lens tint, anti-reflective coating, and polarization to reduce glare. $379
GREATS Foster Slipper
GREATS may be best known for their minimalist sneakers, but their cozy Foster Slippers are the Brooklyn brand’s sleeper hit. The puffer-inspired slides’ quilted upper and cushioned footbed wrapped in soft leather are perfect for padding around the house or exuding WFH vibes. You can also wear them to a quick trip to the store and still look as stylish as ever. Available in classic green and brown, black and three limited edition hues.$99
Victrola V1 Soundbar Turntable
The deliberate experience of putting on a classic vinyl, perhaps with a dram of whiskey in hand, is a rare pleasure meant to be savored, so why not ensure that listening experience is up to par from the get-go? Victrola’s handsome take on the turntable boasts internal stereo speakers for crystal-clear listening. $299.99
Filson Down Cruiser Jacket
Looking for a handsome jacket equipped for the coldest, wettest weather from one of America’s greatest heritage outfitters? Seattle-based Filson literally has you covered with its Down Cruiser jacket. Filled with responsibly-sourced goose down, this rugged, heat-trapping beauty laughs in the face of wintry weather courtesy of its waxed, oil-finished shell.
Merlino wool lines the neck and handwarmer pockets, so you don’t even need to worry about gloves. There’s plenty of room for storage–including front pockets modeled after Filson’s iconic Mackinaw Wool Cruiser– and a deep, interior chest zippered pocket to keep your wallet and valuables secure. The relaxed fit allows for midweight layering, and it’s available in either otter green or dark tan. $495
Tag Heuer Carrera “Panda” Dial
Any enthusiast with a passion for watches knows the Tag Heuer Carrera, a sporty and sleek yet distinctly dressy timepiece. Here, the famed watchmaker teams with Watches of Switzerland for a limited-edition two-tone “panda” iteration. $6,350
Tom Ford Cashmere Scarf
Think of this cashmere scarf as the ultimate splurge, a gift sure to both warm the wearer’s neck and inject a dash of refinement and class into dressy winter looks. Tom Ford is a design master across several categories, after all, and this scarf makes a subtle, seriously cool style statement. $580
