It is that time of the year again! The season of gifting, family dinners that are low key just all about getting stuffed and showing off your best outfits, caroling, looking back at the year, listening to old Christmas songs and feeling some major nostalgia, listening to new Christmas songs and wondering why they don’t make Christmas songs like they used to and generally having a swell time regardless of whether or not you are religious. The spirit of the holidays is one that almost everyone – in some way or the other – gets to partake in and one way everyone can truly get into the holiday spirit is gifting.
Whilst the classic and iconic Mariah Carey Christmas tune – which has already started making it’s way back to the top of the Billboard Top 100 despite being released decades ago – sonorously proclaims ‘All I want for Christmas is you’ I can assure you that most people, this holiday season, don’t want just you. They want you and a gift or three.
Whilst gifting is a fun experience, picking the right gift can be a surprisingly daunting experience especially when shopping for a man. Especially a fashionable man who does not want just socks and singlets, thank you next!
Here are seven amazing gift ideas for the fashionable man in your life:
Orange Culture’s re-imagination of the classic white shirt is one that is welcome in anyone’s wardrobe and almost regardless of personal style or preference. The subtle flair of it simply makes it equal part trendy and equal part a staple.
As seen on the stylish likes of Denola Grey and Adebayo Oke-Lawal, Dapmod glasses are the epitome of cool kid fashion. Chic, versatile and stylish, they do everything the perfect pair of glasses are supposed to do which is leave you looking like a snack!
Nack Apparel was a brand that I found quite interesting during Lagos Fashion Week 2018 presentations. I loved their take on sportswear, it was definitely refreshing to see on the runway. This particular multi-colored bomber jacket is definitely one that every man will appreciate seeing on Christmas morning.
The average man has a tendency to forget to accessorize appropriately but once you get him these handcrafted cuff links from Nigerian jewelry brand Zivanora I’m sure that will be a thing of the past.
Graphic shirts are honestly the best. Simple yet statement making and this edgy Pop Caven graphic shirt would be the perfect addiction to any wardrobe.
This has to be my personal favourite from South African brand Rich Mnisi‘s Nwa-Mulamula ‘18 collection. The colour, the silhouette, the fabric is so heavenly and holiday appropriate. 10/10 recommend you buying this for me and the man in your life.
Naturally stylish people care about how they look and seeing how the goal for 2019 is to glow in every possible way (we have to blind the haters) and if you want the man in your life (boyfriend, husband, father, son, gateman etc) to partake in Glowgenda 2019 the first step is to gift the man in your life the Matte Apothecary Face and Body Radiance Oil and glow together!
So there you go, now you don’t have an excuse to give a man socks and singlets because ‘I didn’t know what else to buy for you’.
