Christmas is a time to disconnect from work, catch up with family, sleep in, watch the season’s most anticipated movies, eat good food and sleep it off. It’s also a great opportunity to hit the slopes or get out of town, if you can manage it. But despite these seemingly ideal conditions, the holidays are not all reindeers and fruitcake — the stress of holiday shopping takes its toll.
For starters: Sweaty, impatient crowds; dizzying lights and warbling choral music on repeat; snot-nosed kids crying for their parents from the knees of fake Santas; and icy, overflowing parking lots do little to ease us into the season of charity and peace on earth
That said, we’ve put together a guide of the best Christmas gifts for men — all of which are available from the comfort of your desk chair — in the spirit of making your life as blissful as possible. Not only are these gift options suitable for any guy on your list, but you’ll be spared the hustle of shopping malls at this critical time of year. So grab a mug of something hot and boozy, relax and get your tree-bound gifts and stocking stuffers out of the way — we’ve got the newest home cinema accessory, a sharp selection of watches and a cookbook that will make his mouth water.
Timex Expedition Watch
Don’t tell the Watch Snob, but isn’t a big, flashy watch a bit… much? Get him something refined, yet stylish, effortless, and timeless. Something like a classic Timex. They offer about a million different styles, but we love the stainless steel Expedition.
Is his wallet a little bulky? Get him an upgrade with a Bellroy wallet that’s especially designed to reduce pocket bulk. It’s made from premium leather and features room for all his cards and bills while keeping a slim profile, meaning he’ll go from a Costanza to a Kramer just like that.
Dewar’s 12-Year-Old Scotch
There is no better way to celebrate success, friendship or family than by savoring a glass of Scotch. Case in point: Dewar’s 12-Year-Old Scotch. Consisting of a perfect whisky blend that is aged in vintage oak asks, this Scotch is the perfect complement to an amazing holiday season.
Each holiday season we all see our fair share of tacky Christmas sweaters, but that doesn’t mean that sweaters aren’t a great gift idea. Think about it, who doesn’t like to stay warm and look handsome at the same time? This one is also good for layering.
Miansai Cord Bracelet
Unless you’re Kanye West, the first rule of men’s jewelry is that it should look natural. Miansai’s woven cord bracelets fit the bill. This unassuming rope accessory, along with handsome gold-tone hardware, will give him a little extra masculine attitude.
