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.
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.
Perhaps most famed for their lighters, S.T. Dupont also make incredible writing instruments, and what gentleman wouldn’t want a lifelong writing companion? This pen combines elegance, timelessness and performance and is a fantastic festive present.
Steel & Jelly
Steel & Jelly are a reasonably new brand to the menswear market, but they are making some serious headway with their refined garments. Another ideal Christmas gift is knitwear, and this cardigan is perfect for whiling those cosy christmas evenings away by the fire.
Another favourite at Christmas are grooming products – a gentleman is always excited to receive a new brand and scent to add to his arsenal, and Australian brand Hunter Lab are making leaps in the market. This body wash is a fabulous gift for all.
Watches are often very difficult to purchase for men. With so many differing styles and brands to choose from, finding the perfect one takes time. But fear not, Braithwait are here to save the day. This watch is classic, masculine and made to last – A great christmas purchase indeed.
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.
If need need a reason to buy a Barbour, you’ve clearly been living under a rock. Now is the time to purchase a wax jacket for all country forays, and there is nothing better than a Barbour jacket of such high quality it will last a lifetime to gift to all modern gentlemen.
A leather weekend holdall is one of most important accessories a gentleman must own, and the beautiful Swiss brand Rubirosa make some of the finest leather goods on the market. We love this duffel, and it will make a fabulous Christmas gift for any distinguished gentleman.
