What do men really want to open on Christmas morning? While they might be the first to say they don’t need anything, many secretly want for nothing less than a mountain of goodies but finding a gift for the discerning man who has it all often requires spending a little more than usual.

But hey, if you can’t pull out all the stops at Christmas, when can you?

Guaranteed to impress, we’ve rounded up our pick of the best stylish menswear, tech and grooming gifts that ooze luxury and promise to give him something really worth showing off.

Signatur Brown Leather Watch, £125, Skagen

When it comes to style mavens you can’t go wrong with an understated time piece, especially one from cult Danish brand Skagen. This trendy watch promises to finish off any look perfectly from casual weekends to more formal office attire. It’s designed with an interchangeable leather strap, a three-hand movement and Roman numerals.

Prada L’Homme Intense, £76 for 100ml, The Perfume Shop

The perfect opportunity to invest in a new scent we guarantee that Prada’s L’Homme Intense will become a firm favourite with your fella. Designed with a super-stylish bottle that will class up his dresser, it contains the same notes as the classic version including amber and iris with the addition of powerful notes of cedar, patchouli and tonka beans for extra warmth. Plus, if you opt for a bottle that’s 100ml or over you can get it engraved for an extra £5.99.

Rains, Hooded Waterproof Jacket, £75, Asos

If he still hasn’t invested in a winter coat then this classic from Rains guarantees to keep him dry and looking seriously stylish. Functional with a casual fit, it’s inspired by traditional rainwear and is made from a water-resistant, lightweight fabric with a matte and smooth finish. Available in 11 different colours from black to yellow and pacific blue, our favourite is khaki green.

Sonos Play:1 Smart Speaker, £149, John Lewis

Music lovers will be over the moon unwrapping this state-of-the-art wireless speaker on Christmas morning. The latest addition to the Sonos family, it has the same high-end sound quality but in a more compact form. A gadget that means you can stream all your music in any room, it can be controlled using your smartphone or tablet and provides crystal-clear sound across all musical genres.

Oral-B Genius 9000 Black Electric Toothbrush, £84.99, Boots

If he’s already got a wireless speaker, then why not invest in a seriously techy toothbrush like the Oral-B Genius 900. Designed with the help of dentists, it’s the brand’s most advanced brush yet – with visual alerts to tell you if you’re brushing too hard. You can even sync it with your phone via Bluetooth to get feedback on your brushing technique. Plus, for a toothbrush that’s normally £280 this is an absolute steal.

Filson Leather Cardholder, £75, Mr Porter

This sleek leather cardholder makes for the ultimate style investment for any well-dressed man. Help keep his cards in check with this Filson dark-green leather cardholder that fits snugly into your pocket and includes two cards slots and a central compartment. It also comes with a handy dust bag to keep it pristine when not in use.

Nike, Match Classic Suede Sneakers, £70, Mr Porter

For self-confessed sneaker-heads we suggest gifting this pair of Nike Match Classic Suede trainers that are inspired by retro Nineties tennis styles. Detailed with embroidered signature swooshes, they come in seasonal storm blue and are made from super-smooth suede. What’s more, the plush mesh lining and robust rubber soles ensure total comfort.

Instax Wide 300 Instant Camera, £101.50, Jessops

Is the man in your life snap-happy? Then he’ll love this vintage-style instant camera from Fujifilm.

When you’ve got the perfect snap, simply click the button and wait for the photo to print.
