Don't Miss

The perfect gifts for every gentleman

Christmas is the time for giving, and now is the time to be organising gifts for all your gentlemanly comrades out there. Christmas shopping shouldn’t be about last minute shopping – nipping to the local off–licence or petrol station simply won’t do. So instead take due consideration in what and where you buy. To help you on your way, we’ve compiled a list of the products you simply MUST buy this season. So without further ado, here is our Christmas gift guide.

Oliver Sweeney

London’s own Oliver Sweeney produce some of the finest products on the market, and this Walton Tan hip flask makes for a perfect festive gift. They also have an optional tattooing service, where you can have any design imaginable tattooed onto a whole host of leather goods – a tattooed hip flask is beyond cool.

Socks, socks, socks – the ultimate stocking filler or gentlemanly gift. Another phenomenal British brand, Pantherella have been creating some of the finest socks on the market since 1937. We love this festive cashmere pair. Soft, warm and beautifully made.

The modern age in which we live is inundated with technology – and most have iPhones that need discerning covers. This is where VESELcase comes in. They make the worlds slimmest iPhone cases from hardened wood and aluminium – we particularly like this one.

The perfect white shirt is a gentlemanly must-have, and you’ll be hard pressed to find one better than this one from British brand Emma Willis. Hand cut and finished in Britain, this shirt is as close to bespoke without actually being bespoke. A perfect gift? I think so.
