Could Santa have done a better job himself? The 12 gifts (with an additional bonus at the end) that have been painstakingly excavated and lined up below run the gamut of stylish apparels, grooming goodness and man-ccessories, and they form basic building blocks for any clueless Bro, Dad, colleague and lover to have some clue on looking less offensive.  

After all, the best kind of gifts are those that keep giving, and these keep giving our word of the year: handsomeness (thus, happiness).


CINCH Belts

You know accessories like ties make lazy gifts. For that reason, consider turning your attention to another class of accessories: belts. Specifically, CINCH Belts. This local startup has innovated what it means for a guy to wear belts so fitting and customisable it might as well be tailored for him. You don’t have to keep the receipt and bite your nails wondering if the gift needs to be sent for an exchange.
