The ultimate gift guide for him

If every year you find yourself endlessly scrolling in search of the perfect gift for him, then scroll no more. We’ve put in the hard work, so your thumb doesn’t have to, and collated the ultimate hit list of fail-safe gifts with a future-facing, Selfridges edge. Discover our next-level (or should that be century?) gifts right here…

Enhance his everyday

Everyone loves receiving aftershave at Christmas, but that doesn’t mean you can’t up your gift game this year and swap his usual bottle of choice for the Holy Grail of grooming. This limited-edition kit includes our buyers’ top picks of skincare, haircare and styling products, plus a sleek black cosmetics bag to store them in (and for you to “borrow”). Particular products to name-drop over Christmas dinner include a purifying mask by Peter Thomas Roth and a sponge hair wax from Hanz de Fuko. The future of grooming is his.

Impress the fashion lover

If you’re stuck in a wallet/cufflinks/watch gifting rotation, switch it up with pieces from the most-hyped brands of today – and tomorrow. London label Hatton Labs’ necklace comes with an oil-slick finish that you won’t find elsewhere this side of the year 3000. Meanwhile, this cardholder by cult brand 1017 ALYX 9SM is made from recycled materials and will take his tap-and-go to cool new heights. Keeping it simple? An Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh scarf needs no explanation.

More gifts to add to his bathroom cabinet

Upgrade his underwear

Giving underwear for Christmas is all but a tradition, but that doesn’t have to mean a pair of candy cane boxers or Rudolph briefs that will be banished to the back of the drawer come 26 December. Instead, invest in a pair from Tom Ford (including styles you won’t find anywhere else but Selfridges) – we promise they’ll be the most luxurious undies he’s ever slipped on. Top drawer. 

Fuel his tech habit

Forget every useless gadget you’ve received on Christmas Days of yore; a new age of earth-conscious tech has dawned, making 21st Century life and every Millenia thereafter so much easier. The Smartech Larq water bottle banishes washing up with its self-cleaning super-powers (yes, you read that correctly), and is not only self-sufficient but sustainable by nature. Pair it with a FitBit for the perfect additions to his morning run.

Raise a toast to the future

Find yourself stuffing random bottles into gift bags come gift wrapping time? Well this year, let us be your drinks connoisseur. Doubling up as a space artefact from somewhere in a galaxy far, far away, this premium tequila bottle from Clase Azul will look as good on his art deco drinks cabinet after it's finished as it did from the first sip. A gift from the present, to toast the future.
