Christmas gifts for the man in your life from

The gifts above are all available from Coes. First is the Gentleman’s Hardware Buff & Shine shoe shine kit. At £15 it’s a really nice stocking filler to keep his shoes in tip top condition. Next to that is the Secrid card wallet which you’ll see more of in one of the videos below. At £50 I’m a real fan of this modern take on the traditional wallet.  To the right of the wallet is the CHPO Harrold Watch with tan leather strap. It’s a very classic design and will suit most guys. Lastly are some great fur lined gloves by Dents, again there’s more on those in the video.

Christmas Gifts From Burton Menswear

Craig shares a selection of his top Christmas gift ideas for the man in your life from Burton Menswear

If you’re stuck for ideas of what to get your Brother, Dad, Boyfriend, mate or any other guy in your life, look no further, as I’ve selected some great items from Burton Menswear that are sure to hit the mark this Christmas. Every year, guys will get something that doesn’t thrill them with joy. I’ve been a victim of that last minute grab and wrap, so make this year different!

The Christmas Jumper

Christmas jumpers don’t have to have a huge reindeer on them with a flashing nose and antlers on the shoulders. They can be restrained and classy. Take this one for example. In a navy knit it depicts an embroidered Christmas scene and a snowy landscape with tasteful reindeer and trees. Available in stores and online right now for £28.

Hommage Shaving Products

Craig shows us a great shaving kit from Hommage for Christmas 2017

If we can make the daily routine of shaving a little more luxurious and a more enjoyable experience with a few great products, I think we should do it. It is said that the average man will spend 900 hours shaving between the ages of 15 and 75. Imagine what 900 hours of shaving with poor products and a bad razor is going to do to your skin, let alone your resolve!

Welcome therefore to Hommage, a gentleman’s emporium which has provided luxury shaving items and skincare for us humble gents for over a decade. With a range of kits to choose from and the offer of a bi-monthly subscription service it seems they’ve thought of everything. No truer is this than in the packaging, as that alone is a wonderful experience and rivals any other product packaging that I’ve seen before. Each item is individually boxed and has a separate compartment in a dual gift box which is coupled using magnetic fastenings.

For this sponsored post I want to show you what’s inside my Hommage shaving kit. Above I’m using the shaving oil which is a pre shave treatment to soften the bristles of the beard to make shaving less of a ‘drag’. The oil smells great and absorbs very easily.
