For the man who cares about how he presents himself, the holidays offer a variety of solid gift options. That said, they also offer horrendous ones in the way of discount ties and poorly cut sweaters. Don’t fall victim to gear that will quickly find its way into a donation bin. This holiday, give the man who cares about how he looks something from this list.


3x1 Denim Solution

Caring for jeans is hard. No one wants to toss a good pair of jeans in the wash, but stains do happen. Designed to be gentler on a pair of selvedge jeans than standard soaps and detergents, 3×1 Denim Solution is the key to preserving the perfect fade. If you know someone who likes to drop a pretty penny on some Japanese denim, this is exactly what to put in their stocking this year.


TriNova Shoe Cleaner Kit

The minute you start wearing a pair of sneakers they get uglier. For the sneakerhead, or just the guy with some good boots, give him this shoe cleaner kit from TriNova so his footwear can always stay pristine. Without damaging the shoe surface, TriNova’s kit removes stains and dirt from cloth, leather, and vinyl. The 8 oz. bottle will handle up to 100 cleanings, so their sneakers or boots will look fresh for years to come. If you know someone with some pearly white Jack Purcells, this is exactly what the style doctor ordered.


Mayron’s Goods Nick Stuff

Taking a blade to your mug was never going to be the safest of options. For the guy who likes to keep his facial hair in check, give him a stick of Nick Stuff for any shaving mishaps. Packaged like a deodorant, the balm soothes cuts, bruises, and burns. So while it’s perfect to have on hand after a shave, that’s only one of its uses. Packed with shea butter, aloe vera, rosemary, and other natural ingredients, it will ease the pain of shaves with even the dullest of blades.


PF Flyers Made in USA Center Hi

Consider this a modern version of an iconic sneaker. The Made in USA Center Hi has a rich history. In the 1960s, it dominated basketball courts. Today, you won’t find NBA players posting up in a pair, but you can steal the timeless style for the street. Complete with a DESMA injected PU midsole for maximum cushioning, this version of the Made in USA Center Hi boasts a hand drawn midsole stripe, hand-stamped tongue branding, a debossed ankle patch and other modern niceties. Want to give a pair of sneakers that will never go out of style? Here you go.


Fossil Q Nate Stainless Steel Hybrid Smartwatch

Most smartwatches look more like a wrist computer than an actual watch. Luckily, brands like Fossil, who know a thing or two about watches, have jumped in the game. For the guy who wants a smartwatch but doesn’t want to wear a laptop on his wrist, give him this guy. It assists in taking pictures, controlling music, tracking sleep, and counting steps, but best of all, it actually looks like a watch.


Barbour Wax Thornproof Dressing

Barbour jackets are prized both for their style and their durability. That durability is due, in part, to the wax coating applied to the exterior. Now anyone on your list can bring a bit of that to their outerwear. Barbour’s Wax Thornproof Dressing is the same exact formula used in the Barbour factory. It takes cotton gear and makes it waterproof and thornproof. All he needs to do is heat the wax, apply it to the most worn areas, and it will dry to form a protective layer. It’s the next best thing to buying him a new Barbour waxed jacket.


Shaman Black Charcoal Soap

All soap is not created equal. Most of the stuff at the grocery store smells like you just bathed in flowers and mint. A far, far better option is this Shaman Black Charcoal Soap. Not only does it offer an inviting scent thanks to the Himalayan cedarwood and clary sage, but the charcoal is said to be naturally detoxifying. On top of that, the rectangular bars look far cooler in a soap tray than the newest bottle of mass-produced body wash.


Hippie Shit Cologne

Yes, this spray bottle of cologne will get people talking when they see it—it is called “Hippie Shit,” after all—but it will also get people talking after they get a whiff. Hippie Shit, as the name would suggest, smells hippie-ish. But that’s not a bad thing. This cologne is inspired by the smell of burnt palo santo, a tree that’s lit for shamanic rituals, which is thought to be spiritually purifying. We can’t comment on that, but we can say that a cologne with soft wood notes, a bit of smoke and leather is good in our book.


Harry’s Truman Set

Harry’s makes affordable razors that perform far better than cheap disposables. The Truman Set is our pick of the litter if you’re looking to give the gift of a better shave. Not only does it include a razor with an eye-catching, textured handle that will look good sitting next to the sink, but the kit also comes with foaming gel or shave cream, three German engineered blade cartridges, and a travel cover. And, not that you need to tell them, but all of that will only run you 15 bucks. Yeah, it’s a crazy good deal.


Nocs Atelier Seconds Silver

Black is a versatile color, meaning this watch can pair with colorful tees and basic suits. Clad in all black, the Seconds Silver watch from Nocs Atelier is a subdued masterpiece worthy of any discerning guy’s wrist. The 40mm case is sandblasted steel and holsters a pair of three-hand quartz movements. The matte finish allows it draw attention without shouting for it. If you’re looking to gift a nice timepiece, but you don’t want to shell out insane amounts of cash, Nocs Atelier provides a solid option.


Form Function Form The Small Package Wallet

Sometimes less is more. Why carry around a thick trifold when all  you really need are a few cards and your ID? This wallet from Form Function Form is the simple, stylish solution. Crafted from a single piece of Horween leather, the Small Package wallet boasts two pockets for just a bit of plastic and some cash. The front pocket holds 1-2 cards; the rear pocket holds 5-8 and is accompanied by a thumb slot for easy access. We also dig the simple stitches, which give the wallet a unique look.


Craighill Uniform Round Cuff

Men’s jewelry is beyond tricky. Guys never want to go too flashy, but many also want something to make them stand out. For our money, there’s little better than a simple cuff. This Craighill Round Cuff is made from solid brass and complements an outfit rather than distracts from it. It’s the perfect combination of simplicity, style, and durability. In other words, it’s a good-looking accessory that will remain a good-looking accessory for years to come.


Tanner Goods Driver Gloves

Soft, supple leather gets combined with a warm wool lining in these new Driver Gloves from Tanner Goods. Giving them allows any guy on your list to feel a bit like Ryan Gosling in Drive when he hops behind the wheel this winter. Like all things from Tanner Goods, the leather gloves are built to last, as the guys worked closely with a Japanese glove company to craft the cowhide leather hand protectors. Sure he’ll toss them on when he’s about to go for a Sunday drive, but he’ll also wear them all season long as he combats frozen digits in style.

There’s no music playing in the background though, so you’ll just have to hum Bing Crosby while you click around instead.
