The Best Gifts For Men—According To The Rank & Style Staff

The Best Gifts For Men—According To The Rank & Style Staff

If we're being honest, men are amongst some of the hardest creatures on the planet to shop for. They don't necessarily want anything new for the holidays, except maybe the new PS5—and if that's not exactly in your budget, it can make things quite challenging. Of course, there's always the go-to basics, but—speaking from our own experience—after you've replaced every sock in his drawer, given him a tie in every color of the rainbow, and bought him enough cologne to last a lifetime, you need new ideas. Luckily, the Rank & Style staff has plenty of them. Instead of letting you continue that endless Google search that only leads to the cliché watches and wallets you've already bought, we took matters into our own hands by asking our editors what gifts they plan on giving the men in their lives this year. Whether you're looking for something special for a boyfriend, brother, husband, or dad, consider this your handy little cheat sheet of foolproof gifting. From record players to eco-friendly sneakers to a skincare kit that will change his life, keep scrolling to shop our guy-approved guide for holiday shopping in 2020. Opening image: @victrolaplayers

Birchbox Man Subscription

STAFF SAYS: "Birchbox Man is one of my go-to gifts for guys, whether it’s a dad, brother, boyfriend, or best friend!
