Guys can be hard to shop for. Often they will say they don’t need or want anything, which is probably the most frustrating thing a person can say at Christmastime. The person asking you what you want will most likely get you a gift regardless, so man up and ask for something you can actually use. However, if the men in your life are anything like the men in mine, that argument won’t work. So here are some (fairly) foolproof ideas for presents they won’t hate.
James Perse Jersey V-Neck T-Shirt– $50
These shirts are so soft and they last forever, I have some that are 6 years old and still going strong!
Vince V-Neck Cashmere Sweater– $295
These sweaters are seriously soft! You can also find them at Nordstrom.
7 For All Mankind Jeans– $169-218
Nice jeans in a dark wash are a great gift for your average guy, because it’s a scientific fact that men don’t understand how to buy flattering jeans. Plus, they also have extra-long styles for tall men.
A Nice Dress Shirt– $138-650+
Either plain or in a basic pattern (bonus points for french cuffs), a well-tailored dress shirt can do wonders. Drag your guy back to the store to have it tailored for them, very few men should wear off-the-rack.
A Nice Watch- $300+
Or in the case of this Cartier Roadster, a really really nice watch. He’ll have this forever, and be able to hand it down to his children. If the guy on your list has been really good this year, a classic watch is a great reward.
