Autumn Approaches | SWIG Hip Flasks


The days are getting shorter, the air is getting crisper; this can only mean one thing - autumn is almost upon us.

While the festivals of summer are usually where a hip flask comes into play, I prefer the romantic notion of a long walk in the woods on a crisp day with a packed lunch and a flask to keep the cold away.
With cheap, novelty flask found in several high street stores, I want a flask that has special something. I don't want something emblazoned with a tacky slogan or encased in pleather trying to be "rural rustic". I want a flask that is understated but stylish, that catches the eye with intrigue rather than audacity.

I chose the SWIG Harris Tweed Flask as it fits all my criteria. The flask itself is minimal and sleek should I chose to use it au naturale or clothed in its official Harris Tweed finery, it's a piece any style-conscious countryman  would be proud to carry.

The flask would make an ideal gift for any man, so you're pretty much sorted for any birthday, Christmas, Father's Day, anniversary or spontaneous event. I believe any man's gift should be practical at its core; most men don't have the time for novelty. If it serves a purpose in a stylish or interesting way, you are pretty much guaranteed to have a happy recipient. 

SWIG offer an engraving service too so you can personalise your gift with a special inscription. Here's your chance to have a bit of fun, a private joke will go down better than HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

Each flask also has a unique serial code, register it at SWIG's site and join the SWIG society for news, competitions and exclusive member benefits. You can also purchase additional sleeves, great for impromptu follow up gifts or just for a bit of a change.

I have a number of seasonal blazers crying out for their inner pocket to hold this flask so I'm impatiently awaiting the arrival of my favourite season. I'm officially over summer, I've some serious autumning to be getting on with!
