Maybe it’s because Lewis and I are setting ourselves a strict budget this Christmas (saving money for the wedding means a thrifty Christmas!), but my gift guides this year are really leaning towards the luxury. Great news if you’re feeling spendy, not so much if your budget is as limited as mine this year.
I think men can be tricky to buy for, but I also think that they like simple things - just really nice ones. So I’ve got for you a selection of classic men’s gifts, but extra special ones - a Tom Ford candle to give his home a real luxurious personality, a cologne with a notable difference to your classic options. A seriously stylish watch - but one that he has to build himself. A scarf, but of the softest cashmere. A gift set of slick city guides to keep his wanderlust ticking over, and some cool glasses to serve his favourite tipple in. And of course - a games console.
These are the kinds of gifts I would love to gift - things that will be used, but that still feel special, indulgent and memorable. Items that he’ll enjoy every time he goes to use them, things that create memories. Hopefully my selection whittles down your options a little and makes shopping for him a much simpler affair this year!
