Show him how much you care with the season’s best gifts for him
Whether you’re shopping for your significant other, your father, brother or a male friend, it can sometimes feel like you’re stuck in a sock and necktie rut. Picking presents for men can be just as much fun as for the women in your life though – we promise.
Here are our top five male-friendly picks for under the tree this year…
Desert boots, AED290, Springfield, visit City Centre Fujairah
Every man needs a classic desert boot, and this Springfield pair is the perfect neutral colour. Crafted from split leather with a versatile low ankle height, they also look a great deal more expensive than they are.
Ray-Ban Classic Aviators, AED660, Optivision Optical, visit City Centre Fujairah
Sunglasses are a genuine year-round essential here in the United Arab Emirates, and they don’t come much more classic or effective than Ray Ban’s Aviator, which was originally designed for US pilots back in 1937. Available in 10 colours, and offering top of the range sun protection, the shape is also available for those who need an optical prescription. Find them in Optivision Optical.
ZX Torsion Sneakers, AED525, Adidas, visit City Centre Fujairah
Adidas’ original ZX range changed the face of running shoes back in the 1980s with their hi-tech approach. Now, this newly released reboot is doing the same thing, reimagining the retro design in the brand’s most up-to-date fabrics.
Timbu Go Backpack, AED380, Carpisa, visit City Centre Fujairah
Ideal for those who often travel for business, Carpisa’s Timbu Go backpack is specifically designed to keep your tech safe. With rigid internal pockets and a handy built-in USB charging point, ergonomically designed straps and a choice of colourways, it’s ideal for staying connected while on the move.
Beats Studio3 Wireless Headphones, AED1,364, Emax, visit City Centre Fujairah
Still, the most popular headphones in the world, Beats’ now-iconic designs have been given a tech upgrade in the form of the Studio3. Rechargeable, Bluetooth-enabled and with top-end adaptive noise cancellation, they also look supremely cool. Head to Emax store to find them.
