If the men in your life are anything like mine, if they need something - they buy it. So our challenge is to know what they need or want before they do.
Having exhibited at many gift fairs over the years I now have a good list of go-to gifts and brands which I will share with you...
Their playful boxer shorts are a must-buy. They have a great selection of designs and colours. They are also a particularly comfortable fit with an extra back panel.
This year I have gone for these beauties;
Charlie's profound words and exquisite illustrations are enthralling, I am yet to meet someone who doesn't enjoy it. I have linked to the book in Waterstones - their pricing matches many of the online vendors. Personally I relish the opportunity to shop in-store at Waterstones, they are a class-act so I like to support them where possible so I can continue to enjoy browsing in their stores for years to come.
If the men in your life are already fans, Charlie has collaborated with WWF to produce a T-shirt to raise funds to help protect elephants. A lovely gift and a worthy cause.
Whilst talking Elephants, I can't help but flag one of my favourite leather and canvas belts.
Wingfield Digby Animal Belts - great for men of all ages. It's a fabulous, versatile belt that's easy to wear with everything. Other popular designs include Pheasant, Lobster and Stags.
Continuing on the clothing theme another all-time favourite go-to brand is Sir Plus
Sir Plus make a wonderful selection of spoiling, quality products. This particular favourite is made from surplus Italian cashmere, their Nehru jackets have been a go-to for some special presents.
I am also a regular customer of their boxers made from surplus shirt fabric. The classic shirt design is very stylish and a very comfortable fit. Another staple for the stockings.
I absolutely love these bags, ideal for beach trips, picnics and for throwing boots and coats in for the weekend. They are exceptionally well made, come beautifully packaged and the personalisation make them especially smart.
Finally, no men's gift list would be complete without our no. 1 bestselling gift for men; the Cock Pheasant Feather Photo Frame.
Capture a special moment in the renown Cock Pheasant Feather Frame. Particularly popular with men who love their country pursuits. The frames come exquisitely packaged in our iconic Black and Cream boxes making it a winning and memorable gift.
We hope you have found some useful inspiration for gifts and that we have introduced you to some of your new favourites.
