    You’ve probably heard of the UE Boom, but this little guy packs a similar punch for under $200. The UE Wonderboom 3 has become our office speaker of choice thanks to a crisp room-filling sound with powerful bass. It’s remarkable what kind of audio you can get out of such a small, portable speaker.

    We get to try a tonne of great products here at Man of Many, but few do we recommend as often as the Sony WH1000-XM5 noise-cancelling headphones. Forget the Apple Airpods Max, these are the best consumer-grade noise-cancelling headphones on the market with near-silent noise cancellation, great audio quality, and the comfiest earcups in the game.

    Sony WH1000-XM5 – Best Gift for Men Under $500

    The Tissot PRX is still one of the best watches you can buy for men under AU$1000 thanks to its vintage sports-meets-dress watch aesthetic and reliable quartz movement. We go hands-on with great watches every week here at Man of Many, but we often find ourselves throwing the Quartz PRX back on when we just want something stylish, simple, and timeless. It gets the approval of watch lovers everywhere, no matter where they sit on the brand spectrum.

    Starward Nova Whisky – Best Drinks Gift for Men

    If you’re looking for great drinks gift ideas for men, it’s hard to look past whisky. And when we’re talking about Australian whisky, one name comes to mind these days, Starward. Affordable, great for all palates, and award-winning, it’s hard to look past this great dram.

    Le Labo Santal 33 Eau de Parfum – Best Luxury Gift

    It makes sense that our top luxury gift ideas for men would also be one of our favourite luxury fragrances for men. Le Labo Santal 33 is up there with the greatest fragrances ever created, and while expensive, it will have the man in your life smelling a million dollars with notes of cardamom, iris, violet, Australian sandalwood, cedarwood, papyrus, and musk.

    LEGO Ford Mustang – Best Unique Gift

    Us men are a simple breed and when you’re looking for a unique gift for men, it’s hard to go past LEGO. Enter the LEGO Ford Mustang, combining two of our favourite things on earth, build it yourself brick art and 1960s American muscle. Your man can even customise his creation with different license plates, engine blocks, exhausts, and bumpers. Of course, that’s assuming he can actually build the 1471 piece creation.

    Maison Des Montres: Watch Cleaning Kit – Best Watch Gift for Men

    If you’re looking to gift the man in your life a watch for his birthday, well done. However, those decisions are often personal and very expensive, so we’re offering a good middle-ground solution for the watch-loving man that has it all – the Maison Des Montres: Watch Cleaning Kit.

    Frank Green Ceramic Reusable Cup – Best Sustainable Gift

    We’re all trying to do our little bit for the planet these days, even if it’s something small like swapping from coffee cups to reusable bottles. Enter Frank Green and their reusable coffee cups.

    Fujifilm Instax Mini 40 – Best Photography Gift for Men

    The Fujifilm Instax Mini 40 film camera is the photography gift you give the man who has it all already. There’s a good chance you’re not going to fork out $1,300 for a new DJI Drone, so we recommend playing it safe, fun, and a little vintage with a film camera.

    Pro-Ject Primary E Bluetooth Turntable – Best Music Lovers Gift

    A turntable that will play vinyl music straight to your Bluetooth speakers, does a gift for music lovers get any better? Well, maybe a set of studio reference speakers… but we’re being realistic on price here and at $708 the Pro-Ject Primary E Bluetooth Turntable is sleek, easy to use, sounds great, and is made to the standards of the more expensive turntables available from this leading brand.

    Carhartt Firm Duck Apron – Best BBQ Gift for Men

    Don’t get the man in your life anything but the best apron in the business this year.

Constructed from 12-ounce 100% cotton material this will last your man a lifetime and then some.

    Dior CD Interlaced Signature Tie

    If the special man in your life is a stickler for quality, the CD Interlaced Signature Tie is a surefire winner.

    If your special someone has a beautiful face, encourage them to keep it that way with a new STUFF skincare gift pack. The Aussie-made label is available in Woolworths, Priceline and Sephora – making them easy to find, and affordable despite the premium quality. Better still, STUFF is the kind of brand everyone can get behind, courtesy of its B-Corp certification and vegan credentials. For this big day this year, STUFF has dropped two brand-spankin’ new gift packs: The Face and The Furious Kit ($20) and The Essential Face Kit ($30). Get amongst it.

    STUFF Skincare

    BioLite AlpenGlow Lantern – Best Camping Gift

    After testing the majority of camping lanterns on the market ourselves, we finally settled on purchasing the BioLite AlpenGlow 500 rechargeable and we haven’t looked back. It’s far from the cheapest option on the market, but we’ve always subscribed to the buy it right, buy it once philosophy.

    Titleist Pro V1 – Best Golfing Gift for Men

    After the man in your life has sunk his hourly wage in balls into the fairway lake, grab him a box of the most player balls in the game. For the latest edition, the Titleist Pro V1 improves on performance once again. Flying lower with less spin in the long game, but retaining the great short-game greenside spin we’ve come to love from this ball. It doesn’t claim to be the most expensive or best ball in golf, but it’s a reliable old friend that any man would love to play with.

    Levi’s 501 Original

    The Levi’s 501 Original Jeans are a style staple and icon. When you close your eyes and think of “jeans” these are the ones that come to mind, and for good reason, they’ve been around since 1873 and were invented by the man himself Levi Strauss. With a quality construction that’s made from 14.39-ounce denim, there’s a reason these have a cult following amongst fashion conscience men. They’re classic, they look good, and they’ll last you a decade or more! Grab a pair for yourself or a loved one this Christmas.

    IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 41

    When it comes to the best watches around the $10,000 mark, few are as talked about as the IWC Pilot’s Watch. Famous for its appearance in the 1986 (and 2022) Top Gun film, the watch was found on the wrist of Tom Cruise’s ‘Maverick’ character throughout and left a long-lasting impression on watch lovers till today. The IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 41 features an in-house automatic self-winding, IWC-manufactured 69385 Calibre movement with up to 46 hours of power reserve.

    R.M. Williams Comfort Craftsmen Boot

    You already knew these would find their way into our list of best gift ideas for men in one way or another. The only thing better than owning a pair yourself is gifting them to a family member or loved one that’s yet to experience the versatility of this national treasure. When it comes to ‘quality’ the R.M. Williams Comfort Craftsmen Boot is up there with the best anywhere in the world. Most notably, the use of yearling leather for supreme pliability, a good year welted sole that can be repaired for life, and a chisel square toe that’s stylish and suitable for all occasions.

    Creed Aventus

    A certified member of our ever-popular list of the best fragrances and colognes for men, Aventus by Creed deserves its spot in the vanity cupboard of any self-respecting gentleman for its masculine feromones. While we’d consider this one a ‘niche fragrance’ due to its limited distribution, price, scent, packaging, and ingredients, it’s the perfect gift for men that have it all.

    Lacoste Men’s L.12.12 Classic Polo Shirt

    We’ve covered the classic L.12.12 Lacoste polo shirt on more than a handful of occasions and for good reason, this is one of the best simple polo shirts money can buy. As such, it’s a no-brainer gift for a loved one this Christmas and offers quality and class in a simple-to-wear and pair aesthetic. Made from 100% cotton it’s comfortable and features a classic fit to suit all body types.

    Westhill Gold Origin Signet Ring

    The only men’s accessory to rival a watch is a signet ring, and thankfully, they’re far more affordable. If you’re shopping for yourself or a close loved one this Christmas, check out this classic Gold Origin Signet Ring from Westhill. Made in Australia from solid gold and measuring 7 x 11mm across the face it’s a great size for most males and can be custom engraved with initials.

    Tudor Pelagos 39

    Another watch that really caught our eye this year was the latest Pelagos release from our friends at Tudor. A slimmed-down piece, our watch writer Lee Smith says this is the sweet spot in the range and we’re sure that anyone who receives a piece for Christmas would have to agree. Outside of the mechanical, the signature snowflake hands and recognisable vintage look would have to be our favourite aspect when it comes to this particular reference but we also love the that we’ve come to expect from the Pelagos.

    Samsung BESPOKE AirDresser

    One of the best additions we’ve made to the Man of Many offices this year is the Samsung AirDresser. Maybe the most used piece of equipment in the office the AirDresser will steam clean your clothes (including suits and jackets) ready for whatever event you may have after work. Recently upgraded, the Bespoke AirDresser neutralises up to 99% of unwanted odours, reducing germs and smoothing out wrinkles in the process. Leave the door open and you can take advantage of the system’s Dehumidification function.

    Golden Goose Ball Star Leather Sneakers

    While we thought distressed sneakers were just another fashion trend, it’s been more than half a decade since Golden Goose hit the scene and their lineup of distressed-look sneakers is only getting stronger. Enter their latest offering, the Ball Star leather sneakers that feature all the hallmarks of another fan favourite. We love the soft leather construction on the upper alongside the leather lining and insole that are designed for ultimate comfort and style. Made in Italy, these are the pure definition of quality footwear.
    When it comes to gift ideas for men, simply wrapping a bow on a new fragrance isn’t quite enough. In fact, if you want to get the special occasion right, there are a few things you need to consider:
