Smart Ideas For The Man Who Has Everything

From covetable leather goods to fine watches and slick sporting equipment

Edited by Andrew Barker


As regular as clockwork, once we hit December that perennial question “what to buy the man who has everything?” always comes along. This year, rather than thinking outside the gift-wrapped box, why not dive straight in but opt for an elevated version of a classic instead. Maybe that’s a Prada basketball? Some Salvatore Ferragamo slippers? Or a Bulgari Octo Finissimo watch that’s so slim you’ll forget to take it off at night. This year the haul of elegant yet masculine presents are as plentiful as Santa’s sack. And we’ve rounded up the best of the bunch.
