Christmas is the season for giving and good will to all men. But if you’ve ever had to buy a gift for a man, you’ll know that they’re definitely the hardest person to find great Christmas presents for. And when they’re a contemporary, style conscious kinda guy, it can be even more difficult! Socks just won’t cut it, I’m afraid. So what can you get them?
If you’re still scratching your head over what to give your boyfriend, your dad or your brother this festive season, sunglasses could be the perfect solution to your present-buying problem. Sunglasses make the perfect gift for so many reasons; they’re stylish and effortlessly cool, they’re luxurious but practical and you can never have too many pairs of shades in your collection.
Whatever his style, we’ve got sunglasses to suit every male on your list. Take a look at our five top picks of shades for modern men and find the perfect pair to put in his stocking this year.
1. Aviator Glasses for the Cool Guy
First up, we have a classic pair of aviators in the form of the Ray Ban RB3025.
