Christmas is right around the corner, and thankfully, you've learned your lessons from holidays past and started Christmas shopping early. Or not. If you're like us, you're probably still just counting those freshly withdrawn bills from your 13th month bonus.

Well, we've got news for you buddy: that ain't going to make you happy. Our advice: spend it. Get yourself something really nice, get your girlfriend that bag she's always wanted, and get your parents something other than a Christmas card.

To help you sort things out, we present you our annual gift guides! Dubbed "All The Things Bros Want 2014," we've hunted down all the things we'd pony up for without hesitation, organized according to the type of guy you are. So whether you're a PlayStation addict, a hardcore fan of retro Jordans, or the type of guy that checks Lookbook on a daily basis, we've got something for you. #GetClickingAndGetGifting


Given how crazy expensive shoes are nowadays, your Christmas bonus will probably afford you a Jordan or two at best. This poses a bit of a dilemma, since most of the releases this year have been nothing short of phenomenal. Even brands like Sketchers and Pony are climbing their way up the ranks!

Our one good advice? Prioritize.

Go for a pair that best mirrors your personality. Are you a corporate drone who plays hoops to blow off some steam? A sneakerhead who flies abroad to horde the rarest kicks in the market? Maybe your old Advans simply gave up on you. Whoever you are, we've got you covered!
