Here at GQ, it’s our business to know what’s trending in the style, grooming, and wellness space. So, when pondering the best Christmas gifts of all (objectively a broad category), we thought it might be easiest to dig into some of our favorite product recs of all time to give you the best and most well-rounded slate of gift ideas for everyone on your list—whether they be in-laws you see once a year, or friends and partners that you see every (or almost every) single day. 

We’ve spent the past calendar year or so cataloguing cozy fits and supremely giftable bedding, cooking essentials, and fitness gear. And for our slate of gift guides, specifically, we’ve consulted gamers and vino enthusiasts, as well as intuited the desires of (very difficult to shop for!) moms and dads and boyfriends and girlfriends with creative gift ideas that may be right on the tip of their tongues. 

Here, some of our most stood-behind product recommendations of the years past, with a dip into the gift guide directory for some of our favorite gift picks in 2022. We’ve broken everything out by category, with some helpful links to the source material so you can read up while you browse. Without further ado, a definitive list of the best Christmas gifts, according to us.

A pretty great lazy pourover setup from the minds at Muji: Just add hot water and gulp it down.
