The Perfect Christmas Gift Ideas For Men
The silly season is upon us and if you’re like most of us, you’ve had the recent realisation that Christmas is all but a week away. Before the panic sets in, we’re here to help. Whether you’re looking to get yourself holiday-ready, or are purchasing a gift for a friend or significant other, we’ve got a ton of fashion staples and great small gift ideas for men to set you in the right direction and ensure you’re fit for the festive season.
With summer on the way and the temperature creeping up, now’s the time to secure some perfect threads for the holiday period. This means beach-ready casual-wear, smart-casual wear for when you’re out and about, and formal wear for those moments in the social calendar where you need to dress to impress. We’ve got you covered for all of them.
Ready to step out for a beach day in style? The Haze Short Sleeve Shirt by Pearly King is a fun, cotton rayon shirt that will turn plenty of heads.
Pair this with the Fruity Swim Short by Florentino, guaranteed to turn heads and add some vibrance to your look while making you at home on the beach, pool or while out running errands.
If you’re going for a more smart-casual look, why not try a polo? The Army Green Bowie Classic Pique Polo by Dstrezzed is a classic polo with a stripe on collar and cuffs, and a perfect addition to your brighter summer palette.
When it’s time to get formal, you don’t need to pull out the same shirt you’ve been wearing all winter. The Soft Pink Voile Shirt by Dstrezzed or the Traffic Jam by R2 are two great summer options crafted from 100% cotton but with a classic collar. Balance form with function, for breathable summer staples you can wear to the bar, or barbecue.
Now’s the time of year when you’ll be itching to tame that winter/spring beard so there’s no better time to stock up on grooming items to give your face some space to breathe. They also make unique gifts, perfect as add-ons and stocking stuffers for those hard-to-buy-for men in your life.
While skin care can be uncharted territory for some, there are some great solutions that make it easy to look and feel your best, while taking care of your skin over the summer months.
Summer’s a time of heat, sweat and light exposure that can age skin. To cover all your bases, we recommend the 4 Step Skin Care Set.
You’ll enjoy a Dead Sea Scrub, Cleansing Gel, Toning Serum and All Day Moisturiser. They come in a convenient gift pack that takes out the guesswork, giving you or the man you’re looking for the confidence of cared-for skin this summer.
For he-who-shan’t-be-tamed, a Beard Brush & Comb Set is a great grooming option to get facial hair in check for the warmer months. This beautiful gift set includes a natural boar bristle brush with a natural long-lasting wooden handle and two wooden combs capable of taming even the wildest of facial hair.
We also have plenty of great lifestyle gift items for the summer season. Whether you’re road-tripping, away at the bach, or cozying it up at home, these are great for keeping you equipped, or gifting to friends and family when you’re short on ideas.
Summer’s the perfect time to travel and if you’re travelling light, it still pays to pack the essentials. A dedicated groomer never lets a trip get in the way of a grooming routine, so to keep your bases covered, the On The Road Travel Kit by Triumph & Disaster is the perfect way to go.
Lightweight and compact, it will ensure you are clean-faced, clean-shaven and well prepared for the path ahead, whatever it may hold.
On The Road includes: YLF Wash, Ritual Face Cleanser, Old Fashioned Shave Cream and Gameface Moisturiser, all incredible products guaranteed to have you looking your best and feeling ready for wherever the road may take you.
As any business-minded person knows, a good idea can strike at any time. To keep them flowing and help you pass the time when you’re lounging at home or at the bach, grab a coffee table book like The Monocle Guide to Good Business.
Great as a gift or for some light summer reading material to take on holiday, this book is perfect for would-be business leaders, start-ups, and established companies that feel it’s time for some new ideas.
When it’s time to chill out with a bit of R&R, some great tunes can help to set the mood. If your old headphones aren’t really cutting, it it could be time to get retro. The Vintage Bluetooth Speaker by Philips has all the nostalgia of old, with a classic 1950’s design aesthetic, but with all the quality you’d expect from a modern speaker. With bluetooth functionality, you can pair it effortlessly with your phone or tablet, for on-the-go sounds you’ll make a whole new collection of summer memories.
You’ll also want to ensure you’re sun-ready so you don’t get caught out on those hot days. Add some style and much-needed shade to your look with the Ecuadorian Panama Fedora by Hills Hats; perfect for dressing up or down and pairing with some sunglasses.
If you’re looking for some great stocking stuffers for those with a sweet tooth, some boutique sweets from Sweet Disorder can really help people step up their candy game. They’re also great to have tucked away for whenever you get a hankering, or you’re trying to incentivise a bit of peace and quiet in the back seat on a long car trip! Any excuse will do.
