Buying holiday gifts for guys can be tricky. A lot of men don’t care much about men’s fashion on their own and they’re likely to just get whatever the salesman tells them they need. Even worse is the guy who is so picky that you can’t buy him anything he hasn’t already seen and passed on buying for himself.

However, most guys don’t fit into either of those categories. Most men want to be fashionable, but they just don’t have the time or the knowledge to find the right items.

That’s where the holidays can come in and where you can be the hero. Whether you’re buying for a family member, an old friend or that special man in your life, these 10 men’s fashion gifts won’t disappoint.

1. Ettinger Wallet

$40men’s fashion gifts

Purchase at: Ettinger London

There’s no man on earth that would turn down fine leather goods, and Ettinger London makes some of the best in the world. Made using traditional brindle hide, these wallets come in a variety of colors to suit any man’s style. We think the navy blue with a natural interior is one of the best men’s fashion gifts of the year.

2. Yankees Used Game Baseball Bottle Opener

$125men’s fashion gifts

Purchase at: Tokens & Icons

Unless he’s a lifelong Yankees hater, the guy you’re shopping for is probably a Yankees fan if you’re in the NJ/NY area.

One of the best accessories you can get a Yankees fan, or even a baseball fan, is the Tokens & Icons used game baseball bottle opener. The ball is split in half and inside you’ll find a working bottle opener.

It’s the perfect conversation piece for any sports fan that enjoys a beer at the end of the day. (Who doesn’t?)

3. TPC Sawgrass Golf Ball Cufflinks

$150men’s fashion gifts

Purchase at: Tokens & Icons

Maybe the man you’re shopping for isn’t a baseball fan. Maybe he doesn’t like to drink beer at the end of the day. However, you can still buy him a great sports related gift that he can wear.

The TPC Sawgrass golf ball cufflinks, made from real balls that were used during the tournament, are stylish and fun.

Every golf fan will think these are one of the best men’s fashion gifts of the century.

4. Hook & Albert Red and Gunmetal Lapel Pen

Lapel pins are back in style in a big way, so these Hook & Albert red, garnet-like and gunmetal versions are perfect men’s fashion gifts for the holidays. Best of all, guys don’t have to be too fashion savvy to wear these.

The colors will work with everything from black to midnight blue to olive green.

5. Tateossian Montecarlo Bracelet

$225men’s fashion gifts

Purchase at: Tateossian London

Made in red braided leather and finished with a sterling silver and enamel clasp, this beautiful, manly bracelet is perfect for everyday wear. Guys that wear suits every day can even pull it off since it’s quite refined and elegant.

It’s also one of the perfect men’s fashion gifts for the wrist that isn’t a fancy watch!

6. Tateossian Sun & Moon Cufflinks

$395men’s fashion gifts

Purchase at: Tateossian London

Rhodium plated and made in rich ocean blue, these mechanical cufflinks are interesting enough for fashion forward guys and elegant enough for more understated gentlemen. Best of all, these cufflinks will make him think of you whenever he wears them – which will likely be just about all the time.

7. Hook & Albert Garment Weekender

$395/$585men’s fashion gifts

Purchase at: Hook & Albert

A lot of guys travel frequently and carrying a suitcase isn’t always simple. Sometimes you just don’t need that many clothes, especially for a weekend trip or an overnight business trip. The Hook & Albert garment weekender is the perfect solution.

Large enough for a few days, but small enough to throw over your shoulder, it’s an ideal size for the busy guy.

These men’s fashion gifts come in fabric, canvas and leather.

8. Rag & Bone Hackman Fedora

$175men’s fashion gifts

Purchase at: Barneys New York

Fedoras have never been cooler on guys. If you want to give one of the best men’s fashion gifts out there without breaking the bank, the Rag & Bone Hackman is your best choice. Finished in camel, it’s a hat that he’ll be wearing for years to come with almost every garment in his wardrobe.

9. Alexander McQueen Hibiscus Floral Pattern Socks

$90men’s fashion gifts

Purchase at: Nordstrom

Most guys aren’t going to splurge on a pair of $90 designer socks, but they have you to do it for them, right?

Designed by fashion icon Alexander McQueen, these hibiscus floral socks are perfect for the holiday season, but they can be worn year round. They’re most at home in Oxfords and suit pants, but they’re not afraid of tennis shoes and jeans, either.

10. Wurkin Stiffs Doppel Bag

$49.50men’s fashion gifts


Purchase at: Wurkin Stiffs

Fancy travel bags be damned – this workhorse, made of 100% silicone, is stylish and guarantees that anything that spills in the bag won’t damage items in his luggage or carry-on. For only $49.50, that’s a pretty great deal, considering that the guy you’re buying for probably paid more than that for a single shirt.

Add some fancy shaving supplies, beard oil or bar soap to the bag if you want a more elaborate gift. This one is also ideal for parents looking to help their 20-something guys out with something practical.
