What men REALLY want for Christmas

want-for-christmas

Christmas is for sure closing in. Mariah Carey is preaching about what she wants for Christmas, but what is actually on the wishlist for a modern man? Instead of just branching out on what I want personally would put on my wish list, well then I’ve sought out inspiration from 10 modern men trying figure out what men really want for Christmas. So no matter if this list is for your own inspiration, or if you are trying to figure out a gift, then there should be something valuable.

We’ll start out with some fashion and accessories, before moving onto topics such as electronics, grooming and much more.

FASHION

A COAT

A long coat is a piece that instantly classes up an outfit. Here are 2 good options.

The Danish minimalistic brand Norse Projects delivers a classic navy overcoat in a regular fit for 4.000 DKK HERE

KNIT JUMPER

During these winter months a man can always do with a crisp jumper. He is able to wear it underneath a suit or with a pair jeans. This one from Selected comes in a trendy color and insinuates that the man underneath is aware what is currently going on. Shop it for 400 DKK HERE (affiliate).

NEAT BOOTS

If you, or the man your Christmas shopping for, is not really into those trend sneakers, then he is probably into boots. These Sendra boots comes in a perfect gloss finish and is classy but can easily be worn with a rugged outfit. Shop the HERE.

A WATCH

I personally don’t believe in the saying that ‘the watch is the only piece of jewellery a man is allowed to wear’. However, the watch is definitely something that sits perfect around any man’s wrist.

Wooden watches are in my opinion not a go to, but I must admit, that this Vejrhøj watch would fit incredible well with a suit. The metal components really makes the watch into somewhat of a hybrid, in a way that do both the materials and the watch justice. Shop the watch HERE for €225.

If the wooden components isn’t of interest, then Komono delivers sleek minimalistic designs at a very affordable price. The Komono Lewis can end up underneath the tree for €140. Find it HERE

BUMBAG

Bumbags, or any smaller bag carried by a man, is often a topic of heavy discussion. But since several of the questioned pointed out this (exact) bag, well, then I had to include it.  The perfect shapes of this Prada baby is really something for it self. The retail is at a high of €650, but the bag is actually fairly big. Shop it HERE.

WARM GLOVES

A man should never be without a good pair of gloves. The scandinavian winters are simply too cold to be without such. These from Diesel even covers your wrist up as well. The price for these are DKK 999 at Zalando (affiliate).
