Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide 2021

The Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide

Best Designer Christmas Gifts 2021

Gifting over the Christmas period is thought to have originated around 336 CE when the Biblical Magi, better known as the Three Wise Men, gifted baby Jesus a selection of gold, frankincense, and myrrh on his birthday, December 25th. Of course, there’s also the legendary tale of Saint Nick, or Siant Nicholas Bishop of Myra, a prolific gift giver who championed the poor with colossal levels of generosity.

Today, the ancient tradition of gift-giving is still woven deep into western culture and remains equally as synonymous with Christmas as a honey-glazed turkey crown, golden pigs in blankets, and a variety of other mouth-watering festive dishes. Cue the loudest belly rumble you’ve ever heard. As wholesome as all of the above sounds, it’s important to weigh up your expectations vs. actual reality. Before you can tuck into that roast dinner come the 25th, there may be some stress to endure first, gift related stress specifically.

You see, we’re all familiar with two types of people when it comes to collating Christmas gifts. You’re either the person who has his/hers Christmas presents purchased, impeccably wrapped and nestled under the tree by December 1st, or, you’re the frantic person asking a salesperson for assistance at 4:59pm come Christmas Eve – much to the employee’s dismay, may we add. There are two avenues to head down, we suggest choosing wisely which one you fall into. If you find yourself in the latter position each year, here’s a customary tut-tut of disapproval. But regardless of which category is most you, we could all benefit from a helping hand with picking gifts, so read our Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide for a gentle nudge in the right direction…

Designer Gifts For Women

Christmas Gift Guide For Her

Let’s be honest, as the Christmas season settles in and present panic buying begins to take over, the same gifts are left year on year un-bought until the very last moment… the ones for your partner. Every year you find yourself facing the same guessing game of what to buy, leaving her with endless amounts of jewellery that doesn’t match her style or t-shirts that she would never wear.

But shopping for your loved one doesn’t mean breaking out of your comfort zone, sticking to sites you know and brands you love can be the perfect tactic. Make present buying your forte this season by following our Gifts For Her Guide – demonstrating how you can impress this Christmas day with a wide selection of items from Aphrodite.

The ‘Boyfriend’ Fit

Every girl loves to embrace the oversized baggy aesthetic, channelling the casual look of menswear merged with their own feminine style. Aries is the ultimate brand for a unisex fit, with a wide variety of styles suitable for matching a woman’s wardrobe. Our female staff are loving the tie-dye garments this season, the saturated splashes of colour allow for vibrant styling. Team up the Aries tee and sweat for the ultimate present which will leave your partner desperate to get changed into her new set.

Ami is also another brand that is easily adaptable to blend into a female wardrobe. With their romantic logo bringing appeal to a feminine audience, their range of t-shirts can also be the ideal option this Christmas.







Top Tip: When buying t-shirts for your special lady from male brands, aim for  oversized fits, raglan sleeves and crew necklines. This will ensure the t-shirt will drape correctly on a woman’s form, and avoid any uncomfortable fits.


Hoodie Must-Haves

Sick of your girlfriend stealing your hoodies? Treat her to one of her own this season by picking from our large collection of designer pullovers and half zips. Women’s hoodies are usually cut to a contoured fit, hence why your partner will constantly be preferring yours over her own, allowing her to have a more baggy, comfortable outfit finish.

Buying her a classic brand such as Ralph Lauren allows your partner to add an iconic styling piece to her rotation, or if your lady likes a bolder look, try Kenzo for a simple silhouette with emblazoned branding.    

Top Tip: Although you are aiming for an oversized fit with your hoodie, do not size up like you would for yourself. Male clothing is cut to a wider fit, so, therefore, will already be a baggy fit for your partner. Judge arms and length instead to help with sizing.



When stepping into the world of menswear, women usually gravitate towards a casual street look, opening up the doors to brands such as Adidas and Stussy for your Christmas shopping.

This season Stussy have introduced new textures and fabrics into their collection, which will encourage your partner to layer up her new items with her other favourite pieces in her wardrobe.

Don’t feel like she’d like the bold approach? Opt for a more toned-down look with a simple t-shirt, something that can be teamed with cycling shorts for lazy days, or leather-look leggings and boots for a casual day out.

Top Tip: Streetstyle may be one of the easiest routes you could take for shopping for your loved one due to its versatility in styling and usage. 


Staple Footwear

Unbeatable in terms of present selection, trainers are the perfect statement piece that can become a classic part of your partner’s rotation. Easily styled with dresses and jeans alike, a pair of chunky trainers are a must-have and are sure to bring a smile to your girlfriend’s face on Christmas day.

Axel Arigato is the perfect brand for unisex footwear, designed to a chunky silhouette, they’re also perfect for matching more feminine outfits.

Top Tip – When buying male shoes for a woman, you may need to size down to make sure the shoe isn’t too wide fitting. Check if she is a half size or if she shops for wide fitting shoes to assess what size to choose.


Special Sets

Girls love to match and buying them the perfect designer items that can be worn alone or separate is the easiest way to achieve a happy girlfriend this Christmas. Commes Des Garcons has a huge selection of accessories, perfect for mix and matching and styling with their main products.

Top Tip: When trying to form a set of presents, select the main product first (i.e. a t-shirt) and then base accessories around it. 



Want the ultimate statement present to give this Christmas? Invest in a winter jacket for your loved one this season, being something that is sure to come out of the wardrobe every year. The North Face is a brand notorious for blurring the lines of gender in terms of their styles, with women continuously selecting the male options from their collection.

Moncler also provide a lot of designs suitable for both genders, exploring the use of pastel shades perfect for merging into either wardrobe.

Top Tip: Avoid buying jackets that are form-fitting for a male, as this will translate into a boxy fit on a woman. Padded jackets are the perfect selection as the evenly-distributed filling allows the silhouette to hug the entire upper body rather than just the shoulders.


Following this guide is sure to bring you a joyful reaction this Christmas and take the stress away in the lead up to the big day. Shop our entire Gifts For Her range.

Gifts For Him Designer

Designer Gifts For Men

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.

Timeless Footwear

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.

Grenson Bobby Hiker Boots

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.

Designer Headwear

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.

Designer Hats

Status-Heavy Outerwear

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.

Outerwear Aphrodite Clothing

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.

Contemporary Knitwear

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.

Knitwear Aphrodite

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 CDG WALLET lineup and of course the lauded COMME des GARÇONS SHIRT range, there are extravagant gestures and small treasures up for grabs for all.

Comme des Garcons WALLET


Enjoy, stay safe & have a very merry Christmas from the entire team here at Aphrodite.

Give the gift of care and colour this season. Price – £179.

A pair of fresh white kicks round off our best menswear gifts under £250 guide.

But rather than resort to last minute gifts and fighting your way through the high street crowds, here at Aphrodite we want to help you out as best we can so we have put together a Barbour gift guide, with ideas for everyone in the family.

Slippers at Christmas may seem like a cop-out, but the Barbour Monty Slippers are far more luxurious than your standard pair.
