Holiday GIF Guide: What to Give the Men in Your Life (Animated Edition)
He’s your champion, your travel companion, your sounding board—sure, sometimes (especially lately) it sounds more like venting. Above all, he’s one of the good guys.
Show the men in your life that you appreciate their many contributions and good behavior with a present that will really move them. We’ve rounded up the top gifts for guys in GIF form. There’s something here for every man of action in your life (dads, spouses, brothers, boyfriends) to thank them for the righteous deeds they do.
For the sophisticated sneakerhead, these embroidered Guccis bridge the gap between casual kicks and dress shoes. Even the most advanced collector is unlikely to have anything quite like these lavish velvet slip-ons. Plus, they’re so comfortable he won’t want to take them off—and equally elegant, so that won’t bother you a bit.
The dad or sweetheart who would rather be angling than at the office will thrill over these piscine cuff links from Lanvin that remind him of his preferred pastime. These fancy fish bob along his shirt sleeve, adding polish to his attire on those days when the pole stays at home.
Upgrade your favorite bartender’s tools with this handsome stainless steel set and cocktail shaker. He’ll gladly reciprocate by mixing you a holiday drink with these sleek yet masculine utensils that seriously level up his liquid arts.
Dads, brothers and boyfriends will appreciate some new grooming goodies. The Art of Shaving’s potions and lotions are the height of self-care. Their formulas and tools ensure a clean shave, even if one’s hand is less than steady. A dab of Acqua di Parma is the perfect way to finish off personal ablutions, and a favorite of gentlemen in the know.
For the dude on the move, this Ted Baker London duffel bag ensures he’s adequately packed for his next adventure. Whether it’s a weekend getaway or home for the holidays, slinging this luxe luggage over his shoulder will get him ready to go.
A new pair of shades are always appreciated, and classic Ray-Bans will flatter all the manly faces in your life. Polarized Wayfarers not only protect his peepers but keep him looking cool in a way you can approve of.
