Christmas Gift Guide: Great Presents for Guys From Acne, Mr Porter, Aspinal & More!

It's gift guide time! Now, men are a notoriously difficult bunch to buy for - not least because a lack of willpower on their part (and yes, we're making a sweeping generalisation here) often means that the idea of a Christmas list is somewhat redundant.

So we all need to think outside the box when planning pressies for the blokes in our lives, from boyfriends and husbands to brothers and Dads.

From Acne's just-so mulberry coloured knit for Mr Right, to Lomography's retro camera for your Instagram loving brother, this is our selection of gifts that are great for the men in your life.

Accessories for a Christmas walk don’t get much more chic than this – best of all, there are two flasks inside so you can make the boy carry your delicious tipple of choice as well as his horrid one.

Love this – a real camera that takes ACTUAL film! Plus the retro styling of Lomography’s cameras mean they won’t look out of place on your artfully arranged sideboard. What’s not to love? Lomography Diana mini camera.

Men are, in our experience, notoriously bad at losing gloves. Not any more! Infantalise him this festive season with mittens on a string.

Reiss have gone all out this Christmas with their silver plated accessories – these collar bones are our favourite piece for some secret luxury on a daily basis. (P.s. Don't worry if you're not sure what these are. He'll know).

Blokes love a good diary, even if you do end up organising his social life via text messages and post-its. No matter – for ultimate style, stationary doesn’t come much better than Smythson’s featherweight paper examples.

Every man needs a decent coat in his wardrobe – and they don’t come much more decent than a classic navy peacoat. This wool mix number from Topman ticks all our boxes.

This. Is. Amazing – the Toshiba Satellite U920t Ultrabook transforms from a high power laptop to a touch screen tablet in a second, and is only 21mm thick in tablet mode. We want to buy one for the boy, MAINLY because we can envisage all the ways we can ‘borrow’ it in 2013.

From £899, [a href="http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/B009HQ6V24/ref=dp_olp_new?ie=UTF8&condition=new" target="_blank">Amazon.co.uk  [/a]

Oh, Acne – how do we love thee? GREATLY, is the answer. This amazing jumper is the perfect combination of chunky and stylish.
