Finding the perfect Christmas gifts for men is among the more arduous parts of organising a festive season retail hit-list. But you’ve come to the right place. Whether buying for a boyfriend, husband, father, grandfather, brother or friend, there are ways to win over even the toughest of critics with tech-y treats, unique yet practical pieces, and clothing that offers both comfort and luxury.

For the fashion-forward man, elevate his wardrobe with a pair of Balenciaga ‘X-Pander’ trainers, or a heavyweight overshirt by Everlane. For someone who likes to expand their cultural horizons – be that through reading or experimenting in the kitchen – try a year’s subscription with Daunt Books, or a smart set of Japanese kitchen knives from Samura Damascus.

Practical purchases are always popular, but why not push the boat out with a new bit of hi-tech geekery? Opt for premium noise cancelling headphones from Bose, or a professional-grade performance handheld massage-gun from Therabody for a truly relaxing break from the office. As temperatures drop, perhaps splurge on a cashmere beanie from The Row, or a mohair-blend Raf Simons scarf?

If all else fails, simplicity should do the trick – there’s the trusty zip-around leather wallet from Comme Des Garçons, an absolutely necessary wash bag from Saint Laurent, or for the natural wine lover, a subscription to Cuvée. Shop British Vogue’s guide to the best Christmas gifts for men below.
