Searching for the perfect holiday gift can be a daunting process. Even with the convenience of online shopping, the hours can pass by with little show for it—save for tired eyes. Luckily, we've teamed up with premier menswear designer and online retailer Bonobos to make holiday shopping a pleasure with our holiday gift guide, which includes great present ideas for even your hardest-to-buy-for loved ones. We've spent the year combing through everything—from custom-painted axes to luxurious cashmere sweaters, MoMA's dog-inspired radio to a lucid dreaming mask—to bring you a carefully selected list of gifts sure to entice even the most well-clad world traveller. To celebrate our guide to all things gift-worthy this holiday season, Bonobos is giving one lucky shopper a special gift pack with over $2000 worth of Bonobos and CH-selected gear. Check out the link below for details.
We share Bonobos' passion for expertly crafted goods, built for function while still ticking all of the necessary boxes in the "form" category. The brand is built on the core values of fit and quality, with a taste for intriguing and beautiful design—as well as excellent customer service that makes shipping, returns and queries a breeze. Bonobos Guideshops—with eight locations throughout the US—are testament to improving the regular shopping model; instead customers are fitted for clothes, and then purchase them online.
We wanted our gift guide selections to reflect this spirit, balanced with an eye on classic styling while not being afraid to go big. Which is why we'd like to kick off a look at our Bonobos gift guide with a membership to the Classic Car Club of Manhattan; the ultimate opulent gift for the man with everything. An experience that will last a lifetime, this membership offers access to a rare collection of 40 exotic and classic cars, from the latest supercars to rides that would make James Bond envious.
For the outdoorsman who seemingly has every stay-warm, stay-dry piece of gear, there's the Magic Tarpit from Poler. This back-to-basics outdoor essential offers as many uses as you can think up, providing both protection from the elements (hot and cold) as well as insulation. Next, the French Corders from Bonobos are the optimal pant for every occasion this holiday season. Constructed from the finest French corduroy, Bonobos pays special attention to fit and cut and these bottoms offer the perfect slim fit. The five-pocket design makes them casual enough for a day outside playing pond hockey. Add a patterned oxford and tie for the optimal holiday look. Check out the Bonobos holiday gift guide for more collaborative picks from the teams at Bonobos and CH.
To celebrate the launch of this special edition holiday Gift Guide, Bonobos is giving one lucky shopper a Bonobos and CH selected gift pack worth $2000. And, if that isn't enough, Bonobos will donate $1000 in the winner's name to charity: water, an NGO set on bringing clean and safe drinking water to every person around the world. Now that's real holiday spirit.
