As grown men, we're not supposed to care what we get for Christmas.
"Don't worry about me!" we say with a dismissive wave of the hand, "I don't need anything."

If you're needing some inspiration, here's a list of affordable clothes, accessories, gadgets and toys Esquire has on its own Santa list. Discreetly leave it somewhere it can be seen, and thanks us on Boxing Day.
