Whether it's for your father, your brother, or your boyfriend, selecting the perfect holiday gift for the guys in your life is never an easy task. That's why we've handpicked the items guaranteed to make even the most sartorially discerning gent beam with happiness this holiday season. We're talking a tie that's anything but typical, a pair of irreverent smoking slippers, and even a chunky holiday sweater that you'll be happy to steal when he's not looking. It's time to cross one more person off your holiday shopping list with our ultimate men's gift guide.
Lucky magazine is one of our favorite sources for great shopping tips. We're thrilled to share this fabulous story from our friends at Lucky!
If there's one accessory we always make sure we're wearing, it's a watch.
We'd trade in all our bangles and costume rings and statement necklaces — well, maybe not all of them — for a great, emblematic timepiece. Not only are watches obviously functional (despite the fact that we have our time-touting phones on us at all times), but they're also a versatile way to add a little punch to any outfit.
Sartorially speaking, going from a long day at the office to a postwork holiday party isn't easy — glittery bracelets and sparkly statement earrings don't always fly in the workplace. And that's where a strong watch game comes in! Office dress codes aside, do you gravitate toward a downtown, edgy look? Opt for an oversize style that's heavy on the hardware. Or if you prefer to give off a more put-together, formal impression, mix a daintier, crystal-accented timepiece in with the rest of your jewelry. Uncovering watches with prices ranging from less than $100 to well into the thousands (hey — sometimes a great watch is worth the splurge), we've got an option here for every accessory addict.

Let's get one thing straight: nobody actually wants to look ugly at the ugly-Christmas-sweater party. The goal is to look festive and appropriately attired without trying too hard — and while still looking cute enough to mix and a-mingle during the "Jingle Bell Rock." That's a tall order, but it's nothing one of these sweaters can't help you accomplish. From the subtle sparkle on one very cool Phillip Lim sweatshirt to some serious Christmas cheer on a vintage-feeling knit, we've found the perfect pullover just in time to ring in the holidays.
There are plenty more cute ugly sweaters right here.
If you follow Bar Refaeli's lead, you could very well wear your sweatshirt beyond the gym. Instead of adding hers to layer up yoga pants and a tank, Bar took her cool-girl Kenzo sweatshirt out to dinner with trousers and heels. It may just be one of our favorite ways to get dressed up for a wintertime night out or — with a blazer to polish it off — our new favorite way to dress for the office.
