The 2018 Peter Manning NYC Holiday Gift Guide

Now that you've shopped for yourself during the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, it's time to turn your attention to gift giving. Every year our team shares our finds for gifts that represent high quality, some inexpensive and one major splurge suggestion—just for fun. We always include some of our items in the mix because we genuinely enjoy wearing them and think others would too.

Cozy up

Everyone appreciates the ultra-soft feel of 100% cashmere scarves. Ours, of course, are not-too-long and come in five subtle colors. $112 at PeterManningNYC.com

We find ourselves wearing our Weekend Flannel Work Shirt (pictured above) a lot this season. It's warm and goes well with jeans as well as dressier pants. $98 at PeterManningNYC.com

A soft bathrobe is an inexpensive pleasure. Land's End's version is well-priced and understated. He'll think of you every time he wears it. $59.95 at LandsEnd.com

Footwear

Born out of Brooklyn, just like PMNYC, Greats Brand has taken the sneaker industry by storm over the last few years. And for good reason! They offer stylish shoes at, well, great prices. We love the classic Royale Blanco. $179 at Greats.com
We love Thursday Boots and feature them regularly in our photo shoots. Plus they go down to a size 6, which is virtually unheard of! They have recently added dress shoes to their lineup like these sharp double monk strap shoes. $190 at ThursdayBoots.com 

For quick errands like dog walking or bodega runs, nothing beats a pair of insulated slip-ons when the temperatures drop. North Face Thermoball Traction Mules IV are like water-resistant sleeping bags for your feet. $50 at NorthFace.com

A touch of class

A classic notebook and pen that is tasteful and packable will inspire your friend to start that business venture. Nothing beats writing by hand and sketching to form breakthrough ideas. $64 at BaronFig.com

The Carve On Leather iPhone customizable case is the right balance between looks (vegetable tanned Tuscan leather) and functionality (high-impact rubber edges). Gift this instant subtle style upgrade for that person who revels in the details. $39 at CarveOn.com

Very few men actually need driving gloves. And they don't really keep your hands warm. But they are stylish. These from Riparo look great and are inexpensive. $37.90 at Riparomoto.com

 

Don't forget about our ties. Ours are 54" as opposed to 58", which makes all the difference for men who aren't so tall. We are particularly drawn to our classic gold and navy repp tie. $79 at PeterManningNYC.com

Nice extras

Todd Snyder has been collaborating with Timex to produce fun affordable military-inspired watches that are ideal gifts. This season, they've added versions with a Peanuts motif. Who doesn't need a Charlie Brown or Snoopy watch? Starting at $99 at ToddSnyder.com

For that extra special touch, we also offer a traditional gift card, which can be mailed directly to either you or the recipient. Starting from $25 at PeterManningNYC.com

 

During your Target run, don't overlook the chain store's nice vinyl selection. Grab Purple Rain, Nevermind, or Abbey Road for that music lover. Starting at $18.99 at Target.com

The DemerBox is a wireless boombox that can actually let him rock out anywhere. Strap it to a kayak and go! $349 at DemerBox.com

Santal 33 is a scent that evokes "A man and his horse in front of the fire on a great plain under tall, blue evening skies - A defining image of the spirit of the American West with all it implied about masculinity and personal freedom." The recipient who sprays this on will feel like Steve McQueen in "Nevada Smith." $184 at LuckyScent.com

He deserves a Louis Vuitton case for his iPad. $2,100 by calling +1.866.VUITTON

If a less exorbitantly priced case is his style, the Pad&Quill Oxford Leather iPad case is probably about as nice. $129.95 at PadAndQuill.com

If the LV case isn't in your budget, but he wants an equally luxurious accessory, this artisan-made wallet by Bottega Venetta will work. $390 at MrPorter.com

Movement

Functional enough for chest day at the gym, but stylish enough for Sunday errands, these joggers happen to be a great length for the man of modest height. Plenty of zip pockets for safe storage too! $78 at Hylete.com
 

The perfect gym bag for all your activewear also features a laptop compartment, which makes going from the office to the gym seamless. Plus it's proportionally perfect for the “not so tall” guy. $150 at Aersf.com

The slimmer Fitbit Alta model is ideal for the shorter man. Help a loved one set health goals and achieve them. $78 at FitBit.com

For that person in your life who is ultra-efficient, get them a backpack so they can keep their workout and office gear in one place. Lululemon's Command The Day Backpack 24L keeps everything organized and secure. $148 at Lululemon.com
