Finding the perfect gift for the special man in your life, be it your partner, son, father or friend, can be a bit daunting. If you’re stuck for a Christmas gift idea, look no further… With over forty years of experience in the menswear industry and knowledge of the best Christmas gifts for men, we’ve done our research. Here are our top seven Christmas gift ideas for the man that has everything.
GIFT IDEA NO.1 – Leather wallet
The wallet, an important item of every day use is an often-overlooked fashion accessory. A real leather wallet will last for many years and every time he reaches for his wallet it’ll be a constant reminder of you.
Our pick: These leather wallets from Rowallan have that masculine and classy look that we love. Available in both brown and black, they also feature an RFID blocking technology to protect his ID and payment cards from being hacked or cloned. They retail from £24.50.
GIFT IDEA NO.2 – Socks and handkerchiefs
Who doesn’t like socks and hankies? They always have and always will be brilliant stocking fillers. To add a personal touch, get ones that reflect his style and personality. Perhaps a novelty pair for a humorous man or bold patterns for a confident character? At County Clothes you’ll find plenty of different socks, hankies and bandanas to choose from.
Our picks: Bamboo-made, luxury socks from Swole Panda are very popular right now and it’s not surprising! They’re made from sustainably sourced bamboo, they’re breathable, seamless and extremely comfy. You can buy a single pair or a lovely gift box of three, six or fifteen pairs.

GIFT IDEA NO.3 – Necktie
Another popular stocking filler, a quality tie will make a great Christmas gift for your Dad. And who says it has to be boring? Think eye-catching statement piece in fun and funky patterns, designs and colours.
Our pick: These luxurious, vibrantly coloured, beautifully made ties from Van Buck England will instantly brighten up any winter outfit. Different styles, patterns and colours are available, prices range from £35.00.
GIFT IDEA NO.4 – Gloves and scarves
Gloves and scarves are super appropriate for Christmas because they’re so practical for the winter season. These seemingly simple menswear accessories will dress up any outfit as well as keep him feeling all warm and cosy. What’s not to love?

Our pick: Packaged in beautiful white boxes, the Possum belts are just begging to be wrapped with a red ribbon and bow and placed underneath the Christmas tree. The belts premium quality belts come in both suede and leather. Prices vary from £39.50 to £55.00.
GIFT IDEA NO.6 – Grooming & styling kits

GIFT IDEA NO.7 – Slippers
