Wondering what to buy your man? Here’s a list of holiday gifts perfect for a gentleman — whether he’s your son, boyfriend, husband, dad, best friend or co-worker.

For An Accessory: Pocket Square

Ideal for a stocking stuffer, a pocket square offers that added pop of detail or color to take a gentleman’s outfit to the top. We love the Private White V.C. Hexington Pocket Square. (59 GBP)

For A Bag: Backpack

Yes, we know your man is likely out of school by this point, but backpacks are for everyone, especially chic leather ones that can be combined with casual or dressy outfits for travel or everyday use. We love this wool and calfskin one by Canali. Although it’s not cheap, the quality is top-tier. ($1,250)

For A Scent: Winter Cologne

With a million choices out there, it was hard to narrow it down. But BDMOTP feels that Commes des Garcons newest fragrance Concrete was this season’s top scent. The title (and unique bottle, which is actually made of concrete) was inspired by the mean streets of NYC, but the scent is far from mean and is decidedly autumn — think sandalwood, rose and spicy hints of cardamom. (115 GBP)

For An Electronic: Noise-Cancelling Headphones

For the top music experience, Bose QuietComfort 35 may just be the best on the market. With over 20 hours of battery life, bluetooth connection and special acoustic noise-cancelling technology, all outside sounds will fade away and that special man in your life can jam, nonplussed, to his favorite tunes. ($329)

For A ‘Toy’: Scotch-Infused Toothpicks

If it’s something random you’re after, this gift set of toothpicks infused with single-malt scotch are a fun and silly gift you can get the gentleman in your life that loves a good stiff drink. (31 EUR)

For A Subscription: Savvy Gentleman’s Box

Subscription boxes are the newest trend, and there’s plenty out there for men ranging from food to sports to fashion. Our pick is the Gentleman’s Box, aptly named, which offers essentials for the gentleman — anything from accessories to personal hygiene and grooming items and more.  ($12-$25 per month)

For A Globetrotter: Tech Dopp Kit

It’s not uncommon for the traveling man to have a million devices: phone, camera, laptop, tablet, e-reader, headphones, adapters and of course — chargers for all of these items and more. This leather zip-up organizer, the Tech Dopp Kit 2 from This is Ground is a travel ‘bag’ designed with compartments to fit all the electronic accessories and strap down the cords and chargers too. ($229)

For Grooming: The Perfect Shave

The Art of Shaving Kit includes a pre-shave oil, shaving cream, after-shave balm and a small shaving brush — a set specifically designed to crate the optimal shave experience while preventing ingrown hairs, razor burn and cuts. ($29)
