Are you stuck for gift ideas for the men in your life?
Buying for men can be a minefield, with everything from overpriced skincare to personalised screwdrivers bombarding you.
But at possibly the most expensive time of year for you and your family; you want to make sure that whatever gifts you give, are thoughtful and more importantly - useful!
There’s nothing worse than adding to that junk drawer full of sample size shaving balms, novelty socks and boxers from Christmases gone by.
To make this year simple, we have outlined 3 types of men you may be buying for and some great gift ideas you may not have considered.
We have The Inner rebel; the man who lives outside of the rules, The Wild Child; a fashion leader not a follower and The Reluctant Gentleman; the guy who just can’t part from those jeans and hoodies… for any occasion.
Help them step into the new year with their best foot forward, by following our easy gift guide!
1. The Reluctant Gentleman
We understand, he HATES to dress up – Smart shoes are too stuffy, but trainers too scruffy?
If you’re shopping for someone who lives in jeans and loathes the thought of a ‘Smart Cas’ dress code - The Chelsea Boot is undoubtedly for you.
This iconic style is an item that every man should own. The perfect transition boots to take them from day to night, and from Autumn to Winter through to Spring.
The high ankle style of the Chelsea Boot fit slim to the ankle making them flattering, supportive and very comfortable.
These can be worn with any style of trouser from suits to their trusty pair of jeans. Effortlessly stylish, the Chelsea boots elevate any look, and a gift like this will help them go from reluctant gentleman to confident man about town.
The welt and brogue stitch detailing are what sets these boots apart from casual Chukka styles.
Choose an alternative colour of like Navy in a softer Suede finish for a luxury evening look with added personality. A hardwearing leather, in classic black or rich toffee is a must have wardrobe essential. We have a range of exclusive styles including items from Luxury brand Bugatti available at fantastic prices.
So, if its meeting the parents, Christmas parties or long overdue reunions, gift a pair of beautiful leather Chelsea boots this year to the gentleman in your life!
2. The Wild Child
If there’s a style that has more revivals that any other, it’s the cowboy boot. It truly is a style staple that deserves its place in the fashion hall of fame. This style has had so many iterations, and we are thrilled to bring you a chic and truly cool version for 2018.
If you’re unsure and trying to figure out if the man in your life is the kind to rock a cowboy boot, maybe browse over this checklist;
Do they hate to follow fashion trends? Do they like to wear their old favourites till they fall apart? Are they not scared to stand out from the crowd?
If the answer was yes, go ahead and try a Cowboy boot, you are sure to not be disappointed!
Our modern twist on a classic style brings you fresh wearable colours, high quality leathers and suede all exclusively designed for us at prices that are unbeatable on the high street!
Like many men this is a style that only looks better with age, so this festive season try pair jeans with a pointed ankle cowboy style for individual style or opt for long ranger style boots for wintery nights.
Don’t play it safe with your gifts this year… Take a risk and walk on the Wild Side.
3. The Rebel
Is there an old punk rocker or an experimental teen in your life?
Identified by the unique upper stitching on the foot and the chunky sole, the Brothel Creeper burst onto our streets in the 1950’s as the signature look for renegade youth known as the Teddy Boys.
Combining their unique style with Edwardian Britain, Teddy Boys were young, angry and yet incredibly dapper. Their fashion went on to inspire Punk Fashion and every generation since with everyone from Debbie Harry to David Bowie sporting the style.
Today this style is still as fresh, iconic and fashionable as ever. It transcends age or gender and injects a unique personality into any outfit.
Endlessly versatile, we love these teamed with rolled up jeans for a casual look, or do the original Teddy Boys proud by teaming with a fitted winter suit.
Black is essential, but at this price you can afford to take some risks with a pop of bright Red or Royal Blue.
So, go on, don’t hesitate. Shake things up for the New Year and revive the inner rebel… we think you just might like it!
