Take the guesswork out of the equation with this curated list of exceptional, immaculately desirable holiday gifts for any kind of man.

This is an excerpt from Lifestyle Asia’s December 2023 – January 2024 Issue.

Nothing says “I don’t know you that well” more than a gift card. I’ll agree with you that we live in a more choices are better kind of world, but during the holiday season, no one is spared from decision fatigue. 

The special man in your life during this special time of the year deserves perhaps just a little extra thought when it comes to the gift he receives.

Seriously toast to the holiday season with a trio of consciousness-expanding drops. With 800 bottles produced, the exceptional Argonne Rosé invites aromas of pear, dried orange rind, marmalade, buttered toast, mocha, and red berries to the senses and promises to be memorable with its pink-gold tattooed bottle.

The Wraith, born of a 2015 vintage, of smaller grapes which survived the height of the drought in Napa Valley, promises to be a delightful cab sauv with a rich core of blueberry compote, raspberry pie, and preserved plums.

For pairing with lighter dishes, The Judge, Chardonnay from Kongsgaard blossoms beautiful notes of baked pineapple, green mango, apricot preserves and nutmeg with underlying nuances of sea spray, lime blossoms, yuzu, almond croissant and crushed rocks plus a waft of beeswax.

The Food Aficionado

This is a real win-win gift for the man who loves pottering around the kitchen. Gifting him better equipment may well result in more scrumptious entrees at home. This Miyabi chef’s knife is born of the long tradition of Japan’s artisan knife craftsmanship, marrying beauty and effectiveness. 

All Miyabi knives are manufactured in Seki, Japan and boast a scalpel-like sharpness. That being said, once gifted, do stand back.

The Whisky Lover 

Yes, umami. Meaty. Salty. Savory. Not the sort of thing you’d typically expect from a whisky, but hey–innovation knows no boundaries. Gift him this remarkably singular talking point crafted by renowned Chef Kei Kobayashi and Johnnie Walker’s Master Blender Dr. Emma Walker and send him on a trip of something potentially brand new.

It is written that only one of the 25,000 casks succeeded in bringing this elusive taste character to life, bringing us notes of blood oranges and red berries with sweet wood spice, a touch of smoked meat, a hint of salt and pepper, and a long, sweet fruit finish.
