As each day inches us closer to the holidays, Lifestyle.INQ and SM Supermalls have partnered up for a series all about gift-giving. Watch out as each week we will have videos and lists all to help you get just what you need to spread Christmas cheer.
What to get a man who has everything? What to get a man who’s on the move? What to get a man who plays between varied interests? These questions don’t get any easier every season when we start shopping for those Christmas gifts.
Looking at the best at what is out there, I realized it’s about function. For the men in your life who are busy with work, helping out their family, or pursuing their everyday goals, it’s about getting them truly useful gifts. Tune into their hobbies and habits. Think about the dilemmas they have and how little tweaks can help them avoid it.
1. For the one who’s always out: Suit by Suit It Up Manila
A good, well-tailored suit is an investment piece every man would appreciate. It’s good for several occasions, including weddings and birthday parties. It will also be the best for big meetings and formal dinners. He can also pack it with him during trips for a fool-proof outfit that’s guaranteed he’ll look sharp.
2. For the comic book aficionado: Character plushies from DC Super Hero Cafe
If there’s a DC fan in your life, these plushies are something on their list. They may not admit it to you, but they want one of these (or more) in their room and even in their car. DC Super Hero Cafe offers up plushies of Superman, Batman, The Flash, and more so you’ll find just the toy that he’ll love at a price that won’t break the bank.
3. For the old soul: Motorino Turntable from Satchmi
Does your dad miss the sound of records? Is your boyfriend particular about his tunes? Is your brother the default DJ at every party with his curated playlists? Give in to what they want with this turntable. The sound is crisp and unparalleled, and collecting vinyl is always fun. It’s a gift that keeps on giving.
4. For the weekend buddy: Shirts from Fred Perry
We all have that one guy friend who’s game for the weekend drive to the beach. He’s always up to setting up activities to do for the family and his friends. These kinds of men deserve shirts that are of good quality, which they can move in and look stylish. Get them a few Fred Perry shirts, and you’ll see how much more they can do.
5. For the golfer: StaSof Glove from Empire Golf
Give the golf player in your life a hand with a right glove that can up their game. It’s relatively simple, but it also shows how you care about the things that make them happy.
6. For the adventurer: High top shoes from Onitsuka Tiger
You forget the value of a good pair of shoes until you receive an excellent pair. These comfy high-tops are an easy pick for when he’s running errands, off for an afternoon hang-out, or casual Fridays. They are versatile and easy to pair with various styles, so there’s a place for them in any man’s wardrobe.
7. For the caffeine fiend: Grace Suction Mug from Urbanize
This gift is genius. Anyone who will get this for the holidays will be happy with how this is spill-proof and keeps coffee or tea warm the whole morning. The suction technology makes sure that this mug won’t budge even if it accidentally pushed. It’s a seemingly inconsequential item but is a great help and is also environmentally-friendly.
8. For the kid who needs to unwind: Sony Playstation 4 from Toy Kingdom
If you are feeling extra generous, a Sony Playstation 4 is what you can get for that person in your life who loves to blow off some steam via video games. It will help him level up on new games and find the old favorites that bring him back to his childhood. It has two controllers, so you can always join in as well.
9. For the college kid: Shirts by Perry Ellis
Between presenting a term paper, boys night out, and other commitments, a shirt that is breathable and goes with jeans or slacks will be the best for the college kid. He’ll be able to make the possibilities in his life realities.
10. For the media geek: Anker Soundcore from Nifty
Easy to use, durable, and able to produce good sound: This is a handy item for any music lover. It can also be hooked up to a computer for something extra during the Netflix binge. The man who has this will experience his music and movies with a plus.
All items are available at selected SM Supermalls nationwide.
