So, sit back and relax while we list our top menswear gifts under £50.
Kicking off the selection is a brand-new arrival from British brand Folk and if you’re not yet familiar with the London-hailing label, let’s just say they live by the mantra ‘less is more’. Minimalist at its very best, this new-season Folk Tote Bag is perfect for gifting; it comes in both black and fawn colourways and has been expertly crafted in Portugal.

Sitting second on our list is the Jason Markk Gift Set. Perhaps you know someone who finds it impossible to keep their kicks clean, or perhaps that person is you? Whatever the reason, this box set has everything you need to keep fresh white trainers WHITE – it comprises a 7oz premium foam cleanser, 2oz stain and water repellent spray, buffing brush and three quick wipes. Price – £35.
Placing number 3 on our top gifts under £50 list is lauded Italian label Napapijri. Just to refresh your brain, Napapijri originally fell into the industry via their affinity for outdoor gear, this quickly led the brand to uncover a harmonious balance between apparel bound for extreme conditions and casualwear… Enter the Napapijri Semiury Beanie. Symbolic for its fuzzy texture and unmissable logo, this cosy bobble hat is the perfect piece to ride winter’s wave with. Price – £35.
Next is a gift that will serve your favourite tech device endlessly; this Paul Smith iPhone Cover demonstrates the namesake label’s ‘classic with a twist’ aesthetic perfectly. Clad in the British brand’s iconic ‘signature stripe’, the partial leather design will back your phone in a kaleidoscope of colourful hues while ensuring easy access to your charging port and most importantly, guaranteeing everyday protection.
For apparel, we recommend something with a heap of branded elements and for this one we’ve headed straight to the label with the Three Stripes. This adidas Trefoil T-Shirt is a true wardrobe staple; it’s brimming in adi’ heritage and features the brand’s iconic logo to the core, paired alongside a modest ‘Skateboarding’ tab woven at the side seam. Available now in grey and white. Price – £28.
In terms of grooming this Christmas period, organic Scandinavian skincare specialist, L:A Bruket, has everything covered. Think luxurious vanilla body wash that’s been blended in the brand’s homeland using a mixture of refreshing yet soothing ingredients, or moisturising beard oil that’s formulated from a combination of Jojoba, Argan & Hemp oils. Prices vary across a range of items, starting from £18.50 to £49.
