What To Buy The Man Who Supposedly Has Everything (But Still Wants More)

Image by: FLANNELS

 Discover Port’s suggestions on what to buy him for Christmas 2022, plus our edit of the FLANNELS up to 50% off sale.

The holiday season is here again and it feels like the first Christmas in quite some time that can be classified as ‘back to normal’. But despite the turbulence and unexpected events of recent years, there’s one consistent element of the festive period that has never waned – the man in your life providing absolutely no guidance on what to buy him. A season for giving and receiving, shopping is one of the key yuletide activities – an opportunity to spoil loved ones rotten and make outlandish requests in return. But when it comes to Christmas shopping for him, the whole experience can often hit something of a wall with husbands, brothers, boyfriends and friends often failing to provide any insight into their hopes and desires. Whether they’re simply indecisive or have decided that they already have it all, that doesn’t do much to make your life easier if you’re the only shopping for them.

Luckily for you, that’s exactly where Port’s editorial team is able to provide some support, assuming the role of Santa’s little helpers to curate a round-up of universally loved little luxuries that will enable you – and, in turn, him - to end this annum on a much-needed high. But we’re not acting entirely alone. Even we’re not adverse to cutting corners on the shopping front, and this year we’re making our jobs a little easier by heading straight to FLANNELS, who come baring gifts of the sartorial variety, alongside elevated grooming gifts that every man will love.

From modern knitwear to trending trainers, alongside premium beauty buys from the likes of Creed, Acqua di Parma and more, the team at Port have curated their favourite failsafe style and grooming gifts for men for this season. We've deliberately kept our selection to well-loved names and styles that are a cinch to pull off. No matter how un-forthright he’s been with his gift requests, we think you'll find these on-trend gifts are everything you guy needs to see out the year in style.
