Cufflinks have a reputation for being a failsafe but not especially exciting present, topping the list of Christmas gift ideas for men.  But these quirky cufflinks for men, which are bursting with creativity, are destined to change all his perceptions.  

Navigating the line between fun and just plain silly is no easy task, but London designer David Marshall manages it beautifully with these Dragon diamond cufflinks. Crafted out of luxurious white gold and Burma jade, they are set with 0.46 carats of subtly sparkling gems.

I don't know many men who wouldn't rejoice at finding a pair of Stephen Webster black sapphire and ruby cufflinks in his Christmas stocking. The internationally celebrated designer is known for his modern, cutting-edge designs and these opulent, Gothic skull cufflinks are a case in point. 

Light up his Christmas with Theo Fennell's cufflinks in the shape of a classic Halogen light bulb - perfect for the budding entrepreneur with lots of bright ideas. They are available in four luminous colours, including purple (amethyst), white (rock crystal), green (lemon quartz) and orange (citrine). Or how about two buzzing bees to grace his shirt cuffs?

Staying with our garden friends, these monochrome Lady Bird onyx and mother-of-pearl cufflinks by Deakin & Francis are far too cute to overlook. Or catch a pair of game birds in full flight with Kiki McDonough's gold cufflinks for men featuring two incredibly detailed enamel birds.

For the ultimate in festive indulgence, Tomasz Donocik's Crocodile emerald and ruby cufflinks capture the prehistoric beauty of this ancient predator.  With scales and eyes crafted from gleaming gemstones, you will be hard-pushed to find many cooler Christmas gift ideas for men and will cheer up that post-Christmas commute no end.
