Eleventh Hour


It's the same story every year. Christmas day is always on 25th December so it's not like we can be confused but we inevitably leave some gift purchasing to the last minute. The final post dates have passed so there is only one thing for it... braving the high street!
I'm late! I'm late! For a very important date!
While storming into town on Christmas Eve can have it's merits; some sales will have started and you are much more focused and less likely to deliberate over choices, it's not going to be the most pleasant of experiences.

I've pulled a list of simple, straightforward gift ideas for men that may just save your bacon!

River Island denim shirt £32.00
A denim shirt is *the* day off essential. Pair it with chinos for some laid back style. Layer it up with some knitwear or a gilet for your Boxing Day walk.

Topman merino roll neck sweater £30.00
Equal parts Milk Tray man and Christmas cool; this little black number will look suave under a blazer at New Years.

Burton navy wool coat £90.00
Think of this as a real investment. A wool coat will last for seasons and navy will be much more versatile than black.

Barbour tartan lambswool scarf £30.00
Available at House of Fraser, this festive red scarf would look great paired with the navy wool coat above!

Daniel Wellington St Andrews rose gold watch £179.00
Available at Goldsmiths, Daniel Wellington's understated designs means this watch won't go out of date any time soon and the rose gold crown and case make a sophisticated alternative to the usual chrome or gold.
Bertie Braxton brogues £119.00
I would feel a fraud if I didn't feature at least one pair of brogues on my gift guide. These classic tan brogues will accompany a suit or your favourite jeans. You can thank me later!

It's always nicer to open a present at Christmas than a voucher. If you are unsure, always get a gift receipt!

Whatever you pick up out there, I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!
