Gift Guide: A very leather Christmas

Isn’t leather lovely? It’s fair to say that the smell and feel of leather will conjure many amazing memories amongst us all. Our favourite wallet, belt, bag, shoes… the list is endless, and as far as materials go, few are quite as masculine as leather either. Now, combine these elements with quintessential British heritage and what do you get? Tanner & Oak. “Britain is our mission statement” is the first thing you read upon entering their website, and Britain is truly what you get. So, as Christmas approaches, what could be better than purchasing some all-British-made leather products? Very little indeed. So without further ado, here is our Tanner & Oak, leather-special gift guide.

Card Holder

Every gentleman wants a finely crafted leather card holder, and Christmas is the time to purchase one. We love the subtle navy colour of this number.

Nothing says refined masculinity like a satchel, and Tanner & Oak produce one of the nicest we’ve seem. Inspired by vintage satchel style but designed in a distinctly modern way – iPad/tablet pockets, business card holders, and navy trims – this is an essential purchase.

Christmas is very much the time for family, and many out there will be heading out of the country come Christmas time, therefore a sophisticated passport holder is a gentlemanly must, and what better than this one.

Notebook Cover

If you’re a true gentleman, you’ll always carry a notebook with you for all your wildest musings. Therefore a fine leather cover is surely a must too? We love this notebook cover and the versatility in it – choose tan for traditional and red for contemporary.

If you’re going to carry a wallet, leather is the only material to be used. It’s durable, elegant and will only get more beautiful with age. We’re big fans of this wallet, especially in the navy blue.

Finally, not Christmas leather gift guide would be complete without a folio. A product that’s simply perfect for any and all gentlemen, it makes carrying documents, or even a laptop, an outrageously stylish thing.
