Shopping for men can be difficult, especially since many gifts aimed at men are either wacky or too masculine to be boring.

If you want to impress this Christmas, steer clear of the toilet humor books, unnecessary novelties, and products emblazoned with mustaches and beer glasses that are everywhere this time of year for whatever reason.

Instead, go for items they’ll actually use, whether it’s a kitchen gadget or a versatile accessory they can use with everything.

Our gift guide has a range of gift ideas for every type of man, with no cliches in sight (except slippers, but they’re must-haves for a reason).

Since many people are cutting back on their spending this year, we made sure to consider a range of prices.

After all, a beautiful, thoughtful gift is priceless for the recipient – and their beaming smile will also be a treasured keepsake for you.
