Men’s Folio 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

Just one more week till we officially start the festive parties and gifting sessions and if you are in need of some gifting tips, our editors and writers at Men’s Folio have rounded up their personal favourites for your shopping leisure.

Read on to see what’s trending on our wish list now!


John Ng, Group Editor


“I’m a firm believer that style and substance are not mutually exclusive. In other words, I trust they should go hand in hand especially in this day and age to avoid becoming an unnecessary fashion victim.”

BELL & ROSS BR 03-92 Blue Golden Heritage; GUCCI Pouch;  SAINT LAURENT Bedford sneakers; DIOR MEN saddle bag; COS Red padded shirt (in store from January onward)


Anis Taufik, Associate Editor


“Finding the perfect gift is a lot like developing your own sense of style. Experiment (and take into consideration) different pieces and don’t be afraid to get something completely unexpected. Sometimes, the ideal gift is not what you want, but what you need.”

COS Spring/Summer 2019 Shirt; GUCCI DÉCOR Medium Star Eye Candle; H&M X EYTYS Shoes; A. LANGE & SOHNE Saxonia Moon Phase White Gold with Dial in Black; RIMOWA Luggage


Jeffrey Yan, Contributing Fashion Director


“The fail-safe approach to gifting is to go with time-tested classics, looked at anew. From Prada signature’s nylon to Marc Jacobs’ Grunge reissues and a Kim Jones remix of a Galliano hit, you can’t go wrong with pieces that deliver both style and a story.”

MARC JACOBS REDUX GRUNGE x DR. MARTENS Boots; PRADA Nylon Trapper Hat; RAF SIMONS The Fourth Sex; DIOR MEN Saddle Bag; LOEWE Woven blanket with Steven Meisel self-portrait.

“We are just a few weeks short from the New Year and it is high time to be a little extra to start 2019 with a bang! From a Gucci DIY tote bag to a gorgeous Maison Christian Dior fragrance, you can’t go wrong with personalised purchases. Also, might I suggest a Thomas Bear Charm for your stocking fillers this year?”

“The moment I saw these, I knew that I had to have it in my wish list. But since I don’t have the funds, is there anyone could get it for me?”

ACNE STUDIOS Tote Bag; BERLUTI Leather Bonded Blouson; ADIDAS YEEZY 500 Utility Black; COACHELLA 2019 Pass; VOLVO XC40


Yan Joon Wing, Digital Writer


“When you are not confident enough to try items hot off the runway, playing safe might be a good thing. Take Calvin Klein’s citron turtleneck or Skechers chunky trainers, for example, these items are trending and never too risky to try.”
