Neckties, whiskey stones, another Amazon gift card—while "traditional" Christmas gifts for men are always a safe bet, this year, take your gift-giving up a notch by giving the guys in your life something they'll actually like (and actually use).

Whether it's for your dad, your husband, your boyfriend, or your brother, these are the best gifts for men of 2020, based on our experts' knowledge and testing along with shoppers' ratings and reviews. Some of the top picks this Christmas? Our favourite noise-cancelling headphones, the Gravity weighted blanket everyone's obsessed with, and the crazy popular Nintendo Switch.

1. For the coffee drinker: Yeti Rambler

While Yeti makes our all-time favourite cooler, you might not want to shell out nearly £1,000 (!!) for his gift. Fortunately, you can get him the Yeti he loves at a more affordable price point (i.e. less than £25) with the popular Rambler mug. Made of double vacuum-insulated stainless steel, it goes a great job at keeping tea steaming hot (or water ice cold) for hours.

2. For the podcast addict: Apple AirPods Pro

Maybe he's an audiophile or maybe he likes not dealing with a pesky wire when he's out for a run. No matter his reason, every guy appreciates a good pair of wireless earbuds—and according to our experts, it doesn't get any better than Apple AirPods Pro. Not only do the recognizable white earbuds have a more comfortable fit, but the upgraded AirPods Pro also use active noise cancellation technology so he can listen to his tunes in peace.

Cosy blankets have always been a great gift but this year, it's all about the weighted blanket. They're very popular right now because they're said to be super comfortable, reduce stress, and even help you fall asleep faster. We tried some of the top-rated weighted blankets and found that the Gravity Blanket provided just the right amount of pressure and feels extremely luxurious.

Whether it’s game day or just a busy Wednesday, sometimes you just want something quick, easy, and delicious. Air fryers aren’t the most health-conscious products in the world, but they do a good job of providing crispy food without the mess or hassle of frying in oil. This Philips model won our roundup of the best air fryers, excelling in most of our testing.

If you’re buying a laptop for a student (or anyone who needs a great laptop), the HP Envy x360 is just about the best all-around option for the money. Its performance is good enough for everyday tasks like surfing the web and checking email, and its long eight-hour battery life means your giftee can use it all day long. But perhaps what we like best is its 2-in-1 form function that allows you to use the Envy as a tablet, too.

Yes, it's possible to look good even when the temperatures drop below freezing. Canada Goose continues to be a favourite with our readers. The "Chateau" is a more form-fitted alternative than some of the bulkier coats that Canada Goose makes, but the 625-fill-power duck down will easily contend with blustery winter winds. Drawstrings at the waist and hood help seal in the warmth.
