Christmas is almost upon us and along with the excitement of it comes that dreaded thought– what do I buy the person who has everything?
Men can be particularly difficult to buy for. They often have no idea what they want, don’t prioritise what they actually need or just simply buy something for themselves whenever they feel like it.
So we spoke to tailor and menswear designer Oscar Udeshi to find out what he thinks are some of the best gift ideas to treat the man in your life this Christmas.
Knit Cashmere Scarf
A good scarf lasts years and adds a classy look to any outfit, perfect by day or night. As the nights draw in and the weather gets cooler, scarves are a proven staple in any man’s wardrobe. Knit cashmere scarves are the ultimate when it comes to quality fabric – soft, warm and luxuriously comfortable.
Wallet, Card Case or Coin Holder
Men are notorious for letting their wallets fall apart at the seams before they feel it’s time to upgrade to a new one, dropping a trail of coins on the floor behind them. Do the man in your life a favour and consider buying him a good quality wallet, card holder or coin case that will last years and keep his money and cards safe and secure.
An elegant accessory that says contemporary, classy and corporate all at the same time. Cufflinks are an ideal gift for the man who doesn’t tend to opt for jewellery yet still likes a small statement item to stand out from the rest. Cufflinks come in all different sizes and styles, so there’s guaranteed to be a set perfect for the man who seems to have everything.
There’s not much that gets men bonding together more than a few cigars in the evening. A cigar case offers a sense of prestige that few other items can, ideal for the man who enjoys life at its finest. As a signature item all other men will envy, cigar cases won’t just keep cigars fresh but show a man means business.
Most men would agree a good quality tie is an essential item to have in the wardrobe, whether it be for the office or a formal evening gathering. Nothing says quality quite like a silk tie, with its luxuriously smooth texture and subtle sheen. Silk ties add a touch of class to any attire, for any occasion.
Still not sure what to treat the man in your life to this Christmas? Gift vouchers are wonderful for those really hard-to-buy-for blokes. The caring thought is still there, especially if it’s a gift voucher for a stylish menswear or upmarket accessories brand, but at least this way the recipient will be guaranteed to get themselves something they like.
