The 2017 House of Fraser Christmas gift guide

From leather goods to the finest aftershaves, this is all we want for Christmas...

There’s a certain Christmas charm to a department store. From the range of products and shoppers to the dedication to decoration, even a frantic scramble around a store on Christmas Eve can calm you down and lift your Christmas spirit. And that’s why there is no better destination to buy your Christmas presents this year than House of Fraser, the British department store who have been trading for the thick end of two centuries. Here’s our pick of the presents below…

Homewares

Whereas socks and snacks are the usual fare of the modern man’s present pile, we’d encourage gifting some homewares for Christmas. From scented candles, such as this Ralph Lauren offering, to kitchen appliances, like this Krups Nespresso coffee machine to perk up your mornings, homewares are the perfect alternative to the usual clothing and chocolate. And, if you’re looking to get something even more special, why not invest in this LSA Whisky Islay Connoisseur Tray – for the true gentleman.

Scents

Scents are a stalwart of the stocking, and for good reason. With a good couple of months of spritzes in their meticulously-made bottles, these fragrances are the gift that keeps on giving. From Creed’s intense Aventus to  Aqua Di Parma’s Colonia Essenza Gift Set, or even Dolce & Gabbana’s Light Blue Pour Homme, there is a huge range of aftershaves to match to whatever man you’re buying for.

Clothing

Avoid socks at all costs here – we’ve all got them, and don’t need any more. Instead, go for luxury leathers, such as these Howick Brown Leather Gloves, or Barbour’s Belsay Wingtip Brogue Boots. Failing that, there’s nothing more seasonal and cosy than knitwear, so opt for a winter pattern – like Howick’s Fireside Fairisle Jumper.
