A Gentleman’s Shopping List for Meaningful Christmas Presents

Santa made his list, checked it twice and even had time to find out who’s naughty or nice. Unlike the rest of us who suddenly realise Christmas is just around the corner and we haven’t even figured out who needs to be on our list in the first place. By the time we get the list sorted, we’ll have about 3’ left to find the right gift, order it (or brave the crowds and head to the shops) and wrap it.

Fear not because we may not have had time to buy presents but we have come up with amazing ideas that cover everything: from your secret Santa to your secret crush and from the friend who has everything to the dad who doesn’t like anything.

Best Christmas gift ideas for men

1. Feed the soul
Did you know books are the most common Christmas gift in Iceland? In fact, there’s a special word in Icelandic for the “Christmas book flood”, i.e. the surge in new book publications around Yuletide. Happy Jólabókaflóð everyone! Books are always a great idea and there really is something for everyone. From the latest whodunnit to rare first editions, give someone the gift of a cosy night in!

2. Time, precious time
Most of us have more things than we need. What we don’t have is quality time with the people that matter. So perhaps the most precious gift is the opportunity to create memories. Pick something they want to do and arrange it for them. The restaurant they always wanted to try, the weekend away they’ve been meaning to schedule or the hiking adventure that’s been on their mind. It can be something you share with them or not but, trust us, they will appreciate it.

3. Style never goes out of fashion
Being a fashion brand, we can’t help but think about fashionable presents! From a complete suit for someone who has an important occasion coming up to accessories such as a pocket watch, ties, card holders or a cummerbund and bow tie set, there are plenty of options for the stylish gentleman in your life.

4. Especially for you
Personalised gifts are a great way to show that you’ve put some thought and time into the present. From engraved pens or watches to monogrammed pyjamas, the possibilities are endless.

5. The true meaning of Christmas
Many families decide to forgo gifts altogether and, instead chip in for a massive gathering or donate to charity. If everyone’s up for it, why not make a difference to someone’s life or the planet and start the new year with some really good karma?
