With Christmas quickly approaching, it’s time to finish stuffing those stockings! Whether you’re shopping for a well-rounded gent or you’re a gent looking to give someone ideas about what to you want, this list will help make those last minute decisions. Here are a few recommended stocking stuffers for men that are sure to please:

The Expected: Cologne

Who doesn’t like smelling good? I wrote previously about my preferred colognes, and I still stand by them. However, if you’re buying for someone else, do a little investigating – a lot of men are pretty particular about what they like when it comes to scents. Order online if you know what you want (most stores can still ship to you by Christmas), or visit a Sephora near you to sample what they have to offer.

The Unexpected: An Umbrella

A dapper man will always appreciate a quality umbrella. I never think about an umbrella until it’s too late, and then I always find myself lamenting the poor quality and embarrassingly shoddy umbrella I currently own. If someone had given me a nice umbrella for Christmas last year, I’d be prepared to battle the rain in style. You can find quality umbrellas at most department stores or online at Brooks Brothers. Note: This stocking stuffer requires a larger than average stocking. Purchase a giant stocking at  Amazon.

The Cool: Cashmere Lined Driving Gloves

I love wearing a nice pair of leather gloves in the winter. Instead of going for a typical pair, add a dash of style and go with leather driving gloves from Park & Bond. They’re functional and appropriate for the winter, but slightly rebellious. Even if you don’t have a vintage Ferrari parked outside, you deserve to look like you do.
