They say women are hard to please, but have you ever shopped for a man? If yes, you’ll probably know that it’s the single most arduous task. Whether it’s your dad who swears he doesn’t want anything, or your husband who insists he already has everything. To make matters worse, they are notoriously lazy at sending shopping wish lists ahead of time.
If this seems all too familiar, we’re here to help! In this guide, we have rounded up the top holiday gifts for him that he is bound to love (and actually use).

This sleek, stainless silver watch with a funky blue dial is the ideal gift for a boyfriend who doesn’t mind experimenting with colors. The coveted watch with a five-link bracelet will go perfectly well with formal and informal attires, ensuring he doesn’t have to keep switching.
