Christmas Holidays are here and you know that you deserve something special for surviving the craziness of this year. If you don’t want to lose an afternoon browsing stores and walking in the cold, we have a few suggestions we think you might enjoy as perfect winter holiday gifts. From clothes to accessories and other toys, there’s something for every stylish modern man out there and you can get them from the comfort of your home, choosing from any of the stores in this Designer Online Stores Index. Also, if you think your girlfriend is lost for gift ideas, just pop this link open on your computer, as if by accident and hope she gets the hint.
If you want some basic pieces with a winter holiday twist, Marni has a range of warm wool cardigans in different colour blends, and this red touch of colour will work great at your office holiday party. Add a pair of Alexander McQueen trousers for a suave elegant look with a red waistband to give them a modern air.
Spending your New Year in a trendy cabin and need something to wear besides ski boots? What about a pair of fancy shearling sneakers? Balmain knows how to make any casual item look sleek and sophisticated so these black high top shoes with leather patches might be the most fashionable pair of sneakers you’ve ever owned.
There should be at least one classic coat in every man’s wardrobe, and this Balenciaga grey wool and cotton blend should keep you warm if you go out to see the fireworks. Accessorize it with this classic Dolce & Gabbana scarf, a lightweight versatile accessory that you’ll be able to wear year-long, in summer and winter. Another basic piece that will grace your closet for quite some time is this white Saint Laurent T-shirt with printed artwork.
Talking about accessories, I’m sure you’d love to find a new Mulberry briefcase, a studded Burberry wallet or a pair of quality crafted gloves from Bottega Veneta under your Christmas tree. And what about a Lanvin fedora to channel your inner Marlon Brando? If that’s too serious and you’re looking for something more playful, Paul Smith’s range of accessories is always a great playground. That’s where you can find this polka-dot Bow Tie.
Since we’re talking accessories, what better present than an impressive limited-edition Jaeger-LeCoultre watch that resists the most extreme of winter temperature? If you’re interested in more luxury items you can invest in, maybe Mr Joshua Bernstein’s second volume of Luxury Toys gives you an insight into the fabulous world of exclusive gadgets. While we’re at it, talking about gadgets, your iPad could use a new Burberry leather Case.
Finally, I can’t talk about the modern man and not slip in some grooming products. In one compact and classy black case, this Dapper Gentleman Grooming Kit includes a variety of quality plant-based products and was designed especially for Mr Porter.
I hope at least a few of these treats make it under your tree/in your closet and you’ll enjoy them a lifetime (or until they go out of style). Happy shopping and a happy holiday!
