The Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide for Men
It’s no secret that men can be a little tricky to buy for. But before you give up and add (another) pair of socks to your basket, check out our Christmas gifting guide. We’ve rounded up a collection of gift ideas for men that’ll go down well with everyone from your other half to your brother-in-law. All that’s left for you to do is take your pick and cross another name off your gifting list.
Christmas gifts for your other half
Give your partner a touch of Austin Butler with the Yves Saint Laurent Christmas 2023 MYSLF Eau de Parfum Gift Set. It’s the first woody floral scent by the French fashion house – with layers of textured wood and orange blossom, it’s a modern, masculine blend of light and depth.
If you’re looking to add a classic fragrance to his collection, we recommend Hugo Boss The Scent For Him Eau de Toilette Gift Set. This irresistible aftershave is infused with the South African maninka fruit, rum and spicy ginger – layered over a warm, leather base.
Christmas gifts for dad
Forget golf balls, this year treat your dad to the ultimate grooming kit. Our Scottish Fine Thistle & Black Pepper Travel Bag Set includes their Facial Wash, Flannel, Moisturiser, Hair & Body Wash and Aftershave Balm – all inside a handy travel bag.
If he loves his cars, pick up this Millefiori Milano Moveo Portable Fragrance Diffuser. It emits a delicate scented mist (using dedicated fragrances, there’s no need to add water) and is powered by a USB port – so can be popped in the car or sat on his desk.
Christmas gifts for brother
For tennis fans, this Lacoste Match Point Eau de Toilette Gift Set is a no brainer. This thrillingly fresh aftershave contains a fusion of green basil and woody vetiver – and comes in a glass bottle inspired by the court.
If he needs a bit of extra help relaxing in the evening, this Yankee Sleep Diffuser Starter Kit is a must-have. This powerful plug-in gives 30 nights of relaxing fragrance and has a timer that can be set for two, four, or eight hours of soothing scent (a dreamy blend of tropical fruit, sweet rose, and cedarwood notes).
Christmas gift sets for him
When it comes to gift ideas for men who have everything, a Christmas gift set is a sure winner. First up? Our Yves Saint Laurent Y Le Parfum Gift Set. This bold, woody fragrance pairs vibrant French lavender with intense American black cedarwood to create a strong, sophisticated scent. It includes the Eau de Parfum (100ml and travel size) and Shower Gel.
For something more seasonal, try this Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme Vetiver Gift Set. It comes in a beautiful, festive gift box and includes the Eau de Toilette and two Shower Gels – both of which combine the depth of green vetiver, spicy ginger and clary sage to create a warm, wintery scent.
Winter fragrances for him
A winter scent is a great idea for any fragrance collection. This Carolina Herrera 212 Sexy Man Eau de Toilette does exactly what it says on the tin. It’s bold, sexy and leaves a lasting impression. With a blend of bergamot, mandarin orange, pepper, cardamom and warming amber – it’s a smooth, stylish scent for cosy nights around the fire.
If you’re looking for something powerful and provocative, Calvin Klein Obsession For Men Eau de Toilette blends balsamic, spices and rare woods to create a timeless scent that’s made for jumper weather. It’s masculine, intense and perfect for the cold.
Winter candles for him
Looking for a stocking filler? This Heart & Home Winter Christmas Tree Candle is a winner. Scented with evergreen fir trees, cedarwood and a touch of honey – it’ll bring a good dose of festive cheer for up to 40 hours (thanks to two natural cotton wicks).
‘Tis the season for sitting by the fire. But if there isn’t one around, this WoodWick Wood Smoke Candle is the perfect substitute. Famous for its soothing sound of a crackling log fire when burning, this luxuriously scented candle will burn for up to 80 hours.
