Christmas Gifts For Him
Somehow – we repeat – somehow, we’ve found ourselves in the twelfth and final month of the year once again. Yes, it’s December 2020 and oh what a strange year it’s proved to be. And while these last months will remain etched in history books for eternity, it’s a point in time that we’re all looking forward to turning the page on. . . Agreed? Anyways, less of the gloom and doom chit chat from us because it’s nearly Christmas and it’s never felt more important to spread a little festive cheer, so, here we are and we’re raring to go.
We’re not sure about you but for us, as the years go by, gift-giving becomes considerably more satisfying than gift-receiving, that’s – of course – if you get it right. So, if you’re still locked in intense deliberation over what to get the men in your life look no further as our gift guide can hopefully put the pedal to the metal and steer you well. Check out our curated selection of designer gifts for men below.
Our picks – Stepney Workers Club Dellow Trainers & Grenson Bobby Hiker Boots
Personal taste aside, footwear is always a great place to start when it comes to gifting. It’s a given that men tend to enjoy box-fresh kicks and even more so when they are wholly versatile. Styles with too much noise and not enough ageless sensibilities are a complete no go, simply because they don’t have the ability to serve the wearer endlessly. One brand that certainly nails that no-nonsense approach is Stepney Workers Club; a home-grown label with a liberal attitude and a plethora of vulcanized, timeless trainers on board.
Our favourite is the ‘Dellow’ silhouette in military green. Shop it here.
For smarter occasions, we still recommend that you pursue fuss-free silhouettes in quality constructions. Perhaps the Grenson Bobby hiker boot is your best bet – it’s wrapped in a warm taupe tone, featuring a metal eyelet lacing system and that signature high-rise wedge sole. Shop it here.
Capable of kicking your winter ‘fits up that extra notch, designer beanies balance the need for warmth and comfort with the desire for status. Here at Aphrodite, we boast an expansive range of woollen beanies from an array of revered menswear brands, such as Stone Island, CP Company, Maison Kitsune, Ami, Norse Projects and more.

Our picks – Moncler Vignemale Jacket & Stone Island Crinkle Reps Gilet
Winter is well on its way and what better time to flex your designer jacket collection then over the Christmas period? While our top picks from outerwear experts Moncler and Stone Island come dripping in status they are also immensely functional for cool climes.
Perfect for retaining heat from the torso, Stone Island’s Crinkle Reps gilet is delivered in a dependable olive colourway with a garment-dyed, textured exterior finish. Taking reference from military surplus, the utilitarian design is made to be wind-resistant and features three handy pockets for storing essentials. Shop it here.
The Moncler Vignemale jacket comes in an eye-popping shade of emerald-green with a shiny nylon laqué outer. Guaranteed to provide insane levels of warmth to the lucky person you’re gifting it to, the silhouette boasts a direct feather injection technique which evenly distributes the down insulation throughout baffles. Shop it here.
Our Picks – Cosy styles from Norse Projects, A.P.C. and Maison Kitsuné
The weather forecast is forever fickle here in Britain which means that you can never have enough cashmere and merino wool layers to bundle up in, so it’s a good job that our favourite European exports Norse Projects, A.P.C. and Maison Kitsune have plenty of charming winter knits for you to either self-indulge in or lovingly present to someone else.

Everything COMME des GARÇONS
Rated by those in the know for decades, Rei Kawakubo’s multi-faceted design studio COMME des GARÇONS is a favourite with the fashion elite. This Tokyo-hailing label’s aesthetic is unorthodox and littered with flashy logos, making it the ideal go-to for hype-worthy gifts with a distinctly youthful taste in mind. From the COMME des GARÇONS PARFUMS collection to the brand’s expansive WALLET lineup and of course the lauded COMME des GARÇONS SHIRT range, there are extravagant gestures and small treasures up for grabs for all.
We’re hopeful that we’ve rounded up plenty of designer gifts for men that you can shortlist this festive season, however, if you’re still yet to put your finger on that certain something you can shop our full range of gifts here.
Enjoy, stay safe & have a very merry Christmas from the entire team here at Aphrodite.
