Oxford Street in London is awash with the magical sounds and sights of my favourite time of the year, Christmas. Everyone seems to be in good festive cheer and looking forward to the holidays with friends and family. With Christmas soon upon us, I thought it would be a great idea to put together a luxury gifting guide for him. Even better, all the items mentioned below are reasonably priced, so you won’t break the bank – or have to skip the turkey dinner!
Below are some of my favourite items that I think would make a really special gift for that special man – father, brother, partner or friend – in your life.
L’Envol de Cartier EDT
L’Envol de Cartier reflects the attributes of aviation pioneer – and my fellow countryman – Santos Dumont: determination, passion and self-achievement. The fragrance inspires the wearer to illuminate his own world, fly high and let his spirit soar. A bright light yellow, the colour of the EDT echoes its signature freshness, brought by the new cloud of citrus, sap of gaïac wood and honey notes. Fresh and woody, it is a substance like a magnetic fluid: immediate, luminous and airy. The pure and refined design glorifies the airiness and intensity of the perfume, raised up by an opulent glass weight.

Dolce & Gabbana DG2169 Mirror Blue Sunglasses
Is that special someone jetting off to a sunny, tropical destination this Christmas or New Years? Or would you like him to be one of the first guys to get his hands on this new lightweight and dynamic design from Dolce & Gabbana? The metal inside the lens gives a vintage and industrial appearance that is a must-have for this season, while rubber nose pads underneath add comfort. They’re also UV400 lenses. This frame comes with a two years warranty. Need more inspiration to find the right frame for your face? Don’t forget to check out the Sunglasses Shop gift guide – HERE

Bleu Noir by Narciso Rodriguez
Bleu Noir is a sexy melange of spice and woods that feels as rugged as designer stubble. A pepper-soaked grapefruit note brings freshness but it’s a sharp, warm and slightly sweaty kind of freshness that feels multi-faceted and more than just a little bit sexy. This clash between freshness and woody spice forms a large part of Bleu Noir’s signature, making for a bold wear.

Aspinal of London Black Croc Slim Credit Card Holder
Another great gift idea is this beautiful Aspinal of London black croc slim credit card holder. A slimline alternative to a full sized wallet, our Slim Credit Card Case is handmade from the finest deep shine black croc print Italian calf leather and will safely hold up to six credit cards and also fits standard sized business cards. It can be personalised with up to four initials, so definitely a great Xmas gifting idea.

Mont Blanc, LEGEND Gift Set
Mont Blanc, the world renowned luxury brand, offers a fantastic gift set containing a 50ml eau de toilette and a 100ml shower gel. The fragrance – LEGEND – simultaneously expresses strength and softness; clarity and mystery. A fresh Fougère, top notes of Italian bergamot and French Lavender are clean and fresh. The heart reveals woody-floral notes of oakmoss, cedar and pomarose, a fruity, spicy raw ingredient developed using cutting edge technology, while the base develops with sandalwood and tonka bean.
The craftsmanship of Montblanc pens is echoed in every aspect in LEGEND from the modern fragrance to the classic, masculine bottle design.

Diesel – J-Sine Green Reversible Satin Jacket
This reversible bomber jacket is a new Diesel icon and definitely my favourite jacket at the moment. One side is crafted from light polyester satin with a lustrous sheen; the bold graphic embroidery reworks a heritage ‘Superior’ logo from the brand’s archives. The reverse is cut from plush velvet with sporty contrasting satin sleeves, and detailed with a minimal Diesel logo. The jacket features ribbed collar, cuffs and waist. Complete with a front zip closure and two diagonal pockets on each side.
