The holidays are around the corner, and for many people, one of their favorite parts of the season is the giving and receiving of gifts. Shopping for some people is easier than for others, but if you’ve got a man on your list with a taste for the finer things, it can feel particularly difficult. If you’re looking for gift ideas and inspiration for a luxurious gift waiting for him under the tree but are coming up short, keep reading for a list of lavish gifts, some more affordable than others, but all beloved by every man.
Down Mattress Topper
We spend a third of our lives sleeping, and you and your man may spend even more time than that in bed binge-watching Netflix or snuggling. Take his bed game to another level and give him a down mattress topper. While mattress toppers are easily bought in big box retail stores, some swoon-worthy down toppers range from $500 to $2000 and will have you two snuggling on cloud nine. Include a set of silk sheets as an indulgent add-on to this gift.
It used to be that Rolex watches were the gold standard when it came to a man’s timepiece. These days, there are so many brands to choose from when it comes to luxury watches, but few compare to Panerai watches. Few watch brands have as many options, from colorful modern styles to more classic pieces. Since many men don’t wear jewelry, a beautiful watch can elevate their style with minimal effort. Be sure to include a card letting him know you love him “all the time.”
Is the man you shopping for a movie lover? Does he take videos of himself and his friends exploring and going on adventures? Why not let him elevate his viewing pleasure with a capsule projector? Projection systems are traditionally bulky and don’t have the best image quality, but a high-end capsule projector changes everything. You’ll be watching the holiday videos he took Christmas morning anywhere you want in crystal clear quality by New Year’s.
Does your guy often travel for work? Perhaps he knows the value of regular vacations. Help him travel in style with a luxury aluminum carry-on bag. The best carry-ons come with locking mechanisms and wheels that spin like butter through the busiest terminals. Go ahead and fill the carry-on with a new leather passport holder, a designer dopp kit, and travel sizes of his favorite toiletries – a new designer cologne is a cherry on top. If you want to make it a Christmas he never forgets, you can even book a trip for the two of you to enjoy. Sitting on a sunny beach in the Caribbean is a great reprieve from the snowy weather back home.
For most of the United States, the holiday season coincides with cold weather that keeps us indoors and more sedentary than during the summer months. Home gym equipment is notoriously huge and takes up space most people don’t want to part with, not to mention they can be an eyesore. There’s no excuse not to work out from home with a sleek mirror gym. They may look like a traditional mirror, but they make working out easy by streaming live sessions, and he can even book private one-on-one sessions.
One way to instantly elevate even the simplest outfits is to throw on a pair of designer shades. If your guy doesn’t pay much attention to his sunglasses game, change that this year with a pair of sunnies from his favorite design house. Whether he’s team Gucci or Prada, designer sunglasses make an excellent stocking stuffer. Can’t decide? Get both; you can never have too many sunglasses, especially if he’s the type to lose them.
Shopping for men can seem difficult, especially if he’s the kind of guy who has everything. Clothes are never a good choice because they’re so personal and something he can get on his own. While the above gifts are extravagant, they’re guaranteed to put a smile on his face and become instant favorites. Can’t pick one? Go with all of them. Happy Holidays!
