Sometimes it can feel like you’re going around in circles looking for the perfect Christmas gift, especially when someone is tough to buy for and, seemingly, already has everything. Take the pressure off and stop looking for the ultimate gift and opt for something thoughtful and unique (or useful, that works too!). My shopping list should provide you with some quirky and practical gift inspiration for the husband, boyfriend, father or friends in your life.
His Scarves, Sophie Der
A scarf is a classic Christmas present and is always appreciated. For comfort and luxury, it’s got to a be cashmere one. Here’s my pick from Sophie Der.
The Navy Lambswool Nehru Gilet, Marmaduke London
If you’d like to add something smart to their wardrobe, pick something up from Marmaduke London. I love the fine details on this lambswool gilet.
Mens Midlayer with Sleeve Stripe, Snow Finel
For those thinking practically, if you know he’ll be hitting the slopes soon, something to stay toasty is just the ticket.
Walton Duffle, Initially London
This is such a classic and cool weekend bag. The monogram personalisation is a must.
Men’s Cocktail Green Silk Tie, Reef Knots
Men don’t often go bold with prints but playful ties appear to be an exception. A silk tie a lovely, luxurious gift he would love to receive.
This is one of those gifts that has appeared at just the right time. Without mentioning the ‘C’ word, this is a sleek, bacteria-killing phone charger we should have in our homes anyway.

Sometimes I can’t resist shopping for practical gifts. If your man is a cyclist, this phone holder is going to come in very handy.

We’re always in need of an umbrella in the UK, so this gift will never go unappreciated. I like the smart contrast of orange and grey here.
