Not sure what to get the men in your life? ISSIMO is here to help
Men can be tricky to shop for. Ask them what they might need and the answer will usually be “nothing.” Prod them on whether they’d like a new tie or perhaps some jazzy cufflinks, and they’ll get back to you with a very unhelpful “I don’t mind.” Enquire about their biggest wish for the festive season, and they’ll tell you “I can’t think of anything right now.”
That’s why we’ve pulled together the ultimate gift guide for men in 2022. Scroll down to find clever little things he never knew he wanted, and oh-so dapper staples he won’t be able to live without. To make it even easier, we’ve rounded up four different categories to shop from – so browse, add to your cart, and tick ‘him’ off your Christmas list!
