Looking for a Christmas gifts for men in your life, be they husband, son, father, brother, or friend?
Ok, so, the first thing you need to do is to put down the tie and to step away from the socks.
They’re fine as stocking-fillers, but if you really want to make his Christmas morning a special one, you need to step it up a notch. Choose one of the best Christmas gifts for men on our list for 2023, or let them inspire a few creative ideas of your own.
Men’s Christmas Gift Ideas
Ultra-Premium Whisky Tasting
Does he appreciate the finer things in life? Give his taste buds a transcendental experience when you treat him to a premium whisky tasting for Christmas. His senses will be dazzled at the masterclass for two, where a tutor will guide him through an in-depth exploration of several premium whiskies from around the world.
A Luxury Timepiece
2023 has played havoc with relationships, keeping family members and loved ones apart for weeks, if not months. This makes Christmas an even more perfect opportunity to give a gift that a special man in your life will cherish for years to come. Surprise him with an elegant, luxury timepiece, such as the Longines Spirit L3.810.4.53.0 watch. It’ll take his breath away.
Vankyo Mini Projector
If he’s a film fan, he’ll appreciate unwrapping the Vankyo Mini Projector on Christmas morning. The projector is a handy size, and it has a built-in speaker, which makes it a fantastic way to enjoy movie-theatre vibes with friends and family.
Rural Beekeeping And Craft Beer Tasting
Don’t want to pile more stuff on him this Christmas? Give him an experience he’ll never forget. Let him spend a few hours at Albourne Estate in the Sussex countryside. There, he’ll be guided through hands-on beekeeping activities, followed by a craft beer tasting and food pairing.
Self-Cleaning Water Bottle
If he knows the importance of staying hydrated, he’ll appreciate a way to do it safely and conveniently without buying bottled water. The stylish LARQ water bottle boasts a UV-C LED light that can neutralize as much as 99.9999% of bio-contaminants from water. The bottle is useful, portable, easy to use, and easy to clean. He’ll be only too thrilled to unwrap it on Christmas morning.
A beautifully designed and well-crafted pen is a perfect gift for the man who still appreciates writing by hand. If you really want to spoil him, the platinum-coated Montblanc Meisterstück LeGrand ballpoint pen is a good place to start. The luxury brand also manufactures exquisite fountain pens.
Wooden Phone Docking Station
There are phone docking stations, and then there are Teslyar’s wooden phone docking stations and organisers (and we know which we prefer). If the man for whom you’re shopping for a gift likes to keep his phone nearby and never seems to have enough pockets, Teslyar’s docking station and desk organiser’s the way to go. He can keep everything he needs in easy reach, and can do it with natural style.
A Bespoke Two-Piece Suit
We said no ties or socks, but we didn’t say anything about Christmas jumpers (that’s your call) or bespoke two-piece suits. We think the latter is the better option of the two, of course. Blow his mind by giving him the chance to attend consultations and fittings with Mayfair-based Stowers London. The result will be a suit made according to his measurements and design preferences, and with his choice of fabric. He’ll give a whole new meaning to ‘dashing through the snow.’
An Engraved Bottle Of His Top Tipple
Whether he drinks whisky, brandy, or gin, he’ll love a bottle of his favourite tipple enhanced by a personalised engraving. If his drink of choice is whisky, he’ll be stunned by a gift of a bottle of Dalmore King Alexander III, a Highland single malt scotch. It’ll be even better with his name on it.
A Dryden Briefcase
If he could do with a new briefcase, give him an upgrade this Christmas. Avoid the boring old designs that will make him look like a cheap lawyer on 1980s TV, and instead choose Filson’s Dryden Briefcase. It may look like something low-key he’d grab on the way to an adventure in the jungle, but it’s the perfect carrier for his laptop, tablet, phone, and other items.
Marshall Stockwell II Bluetooth Speaker
Is he a man who loves his music? It’s Christmas, so let him have it wherever he goes. Marshall’s Stockwell II Bluetooth speaker is a gift that will impress any audiophile. It looks like one of the legendary brand’s classic amps, and it’s durable, water-resistant, and offers more than 20 hours of playing time. He’ll know that you understand.
Samsung Galaxy Buds
Is he a music-lover with an Android mobile device? Make his day with a Christmas gift of Samsung Galaxy Buds. The earbuds offer AKG-tuned quality sound, let him decide how much external noise he wants to hear, and have as much as six hours of battery life. They’re a gift that will put a spring in his step.
A Customised Men’s Fragrance
A good quality fragrance is a fantastic gift for the man who likes to present his best self – and that includes smelling nice. Choose an undeniable classic men’s perfume, eau de toilette, or cologne, if you’re looking for something off the shelf. Even better, let him customise his own fragrance with none other than Floris, the Mayfair-based royal perfumers.
A Tailoring Toolbox
Men certainly are not immune to wardrobe malfunctions. Thankfully, with a few basic skills and the right tools for the job, he can mend tears, rips, and loose buttons and hems with ease, whether he’s at home or away. Give the man who believes in looking his best the Tailor’s Mate Toolbox as a stock-filler this Christmas. He’ll thank you for it.
A Bicycle Multi-Tool
If he prefers cycling to suits, a bicycle multi-tool is the Christmas stocking-filler for him. The Park Tool Bicycle Multi-Tool uses a Swiss army knife concept to keep the essential tools all in one handy place. Its size makes it easy for cyclists to transport. Yes, it’s basically the equivalent of a toolkit for Christmas, but it’s one he’ll certainly appreciate.
A Smart Mug
Does he like his coffee, tea, or hot chocolate just so? Put a bit more sparkle into Christmas 2023 for him by giving him Apple’s temperature-controlled smart mug, Ember 2. He’ll enjoy figuring out the related functions on his iPhone or Apple Watch while sipping on a beverage that’s heated to the perfect temperature.
Death Star Ice Mould
Looking for a Christmas gift for the man who’s a movie buff? We’ve found the perfect stocking-filler in the form of a Death Star ice mould. It’s so detailed, you can practically hear Luke find out his father’s identity. Your family member or friend is sure to appreciate the thoughtfulness and humour of your gift every time he enjoys a cold drink.
Norlan Whisky Glass
A whisky lover’s life is incomplete without a Norlan whisky glass. Specially crafted to ensure the spirit’s complex aromas are captured for his full enjoyment, the glass would make a stunning Christmas gift. It’s the kind of present that amplifies one of the little moments that makes life worth living.
A Chess Set
Chess is gaining popularity as the boardgame, thanks in part to the Netflix miniseries, the Queen’s Gambit. Give him a chess set that doubles as a stunning centrepiece. The Medieval Amalfi Hand Crafted Deluxe Chess Set by Italfama is an elegant example of a themed set that brings the strategic game to life. He’ll love the look of it in his study, on the coffee table in the lounge, or on his home bar.
This smartwatch is a great Christmas gift for the man who loves gadgets. The Apple Watch is stylish, will keep him connected to the people and media that matter, and will help him to monitor aspects of his personal health. If you’re looking for a gift with the wow factor, this one scores high.
A Cocktail Set
Put a smile on his face this Christmas by giving him a gift that lets him unleash his creative spirit in refreshing ways. A copper cocktail set is the perfect excuse for him to start flexing his mixology muscles. Plus, you’ll get to enjoy the results of his experimentations!
A Portable Campfire
Does he enjoy spending time outdoors, under the stars? Surprise him with a stocking-filler that lets him enjoy the cheerful glow of a campfire without all the mess, fuss, and work of building one with wood. With Radiate’s portable campfire, all he needs to do is take off the top and light the paper briquettes and recycled soy wax.
Louis Vuitton Sneaker Box
Is he precious about his new kicks? Show him that you understand his passion for sneakers by giving him a Christmas gift that lets him store and travel with his favourite pair in style. We’re talking about nothing other than the Louis Vuitton Sneaker Box. His jaw’s sure to drop when he pulls off the wrapping paper.
Tom Ford Ocean Plastic Watch
Does he want to do his part for the planet while looking undeniably stylish? Choose the Tom Ford N.002 Ocean Plastic Watch as his Christmas gift in 2023. The watch is made from 100% ocean plastic, and it was launched as part of the luxury brand’s partnership with 52HZ. The partnership’s aimed at reducing plastic pollution. It’s a gift that says “I care” in more ways than one.
Lego’s not just for kids, so if you know that a box of the iconic building blocks will make his day this Christmas, give him a set that will leave him speechless. He’ll be at a loss for words when he sees the Lego Colosseum. The massive set captures every architectural detail of the ancient Roman arena, and it includes a whopping 9036 pieces. We know it’s not a competition, but your gift to him will win Christmas.
Moroccan Luxury Desert Camp
What better way to maintain social distancing when holidaying than by heading into the desert? Surprise him on Christmas morning with the news that he’ll be whisked off in a private jet or helicopter and a 4×4 to a luxurious camp in the Moroccan desert. He can look forward to camel safaris, sundowners, and more.
A Cycling Adventure
If he could do with getting away from it all for a few days, treat him to a cycling adventure. The private, guided ride through the park will be tailored to the weather conditions as well as to his fitness level and ability, so he gets maximum enjoyment from the experience. As for accommodation, he can look forward to the comforts of a hotel in a refurbished Victorian manor. It’ll be the Christmas gift that he’ll talk about for decades.
Gift Shopping Tips
If you’re wondering how to go about choosing the ideal gift for a man, here are a few tips that can guide your gift shopping decisions:
- Consider what you know about him and his interests. If he’s passionate about movies or music, look for a gift inspired by the appropriate category.
- Consider your relationship with him. If he’s your partner, you might want to spoil him. But if he’s your son or your brother, you could treat him to something special, or give him something with a humorous element. If he’s an acquaintance or a colleague, you needn’t splash out too much (stocking-fillers work well – yes, we’re looking at that pair of socks – but only as a last resort!).
- More stuff or magical experiences? Ask yourself if he’d appreciate an item of clothing, gadget, or another item, or if an unforgettable gift experience would make a better present. He may appreciate a whisky tasting masterclass more than he would a set of whisky stones.
With suggestions like these, finding a Christmas gift for a man in 2023 is easy peasy! Even leaving your shopping to the last minute is no longer a train smash…
