The holidays are a few weeks away, and for those of us who haven't starting shopping (including myself...), it can be a stressful time of year. To make your Christmas shopping a little easier, I partnered with MR PORTER and created a holiday gift guide catered to the men (and women) in your lives that adore everything luxe like I do. From candles to cardholders and the coolest earbuds around, I've got you covered!
For The Scarf Lover
Around the holidays, you can never go wrong gifting someone an incredible scarf. This one from Acne Studios is a good option because it's super warm and slightly oversized. You can use it as a shawl, drape it around your coat or wear it wrapped around your neck to keep you nice and cozy on a cold day.
A few seasons ago I purchased this scarf in black and it's probably one of the best winter accessory investments I've ever made!
For The Candle Lover
If you're friend or loved one is a candle junkie like myself, this trio from Tom Dixon is perfect. The box contains one "Orientalist" scented candle, one "London" scented candle and one "Royalty" scented candle (my favourite is the Royalty scent). Considering the glossy metal packaging is pretty as well, these candles are guaranteed to look amazing perched on a big stack of magazines, coffee table books or on your bedside table.
On a side note, this set also makes a great gift if you're attending a holiday party and don't know what to bring. After all, who doesn't love candles? Especially in a set of three that appeals to every gold, silver or rose gold fanatic!
For The Businessman
Bags can be a tricky item to gift. Especially because everyone has their personal preferences. However, I thought this stunning Bottega Veneta briefcase would appeal to almost any businessman because it's functional, the leather is buttery soft and there's something about the woven detailing that makes this piece super sleek and sophisticated.
Personally I would sport this briefcase with a camel coat, an oversized turtleneck and a classic pair of boots but I think it would also look incredible worn with a suit or even a crisp button-up and linen shorts in the summer. Don't you think?
For The Tech Lover
If you're on the hunt for a gift for the tech lover in your life, earbuds are always a great option. I find more is more, meaning the more pairs you have the better! That being said, these gold and black beauties from Master & Dynamic are great because they look super sleek and the sound quality is amazing.
For The Accessory Lover
Next up are these drool-worthy accessories from Gucci and Saint Laurent...If the individual you're shopping for is a fan of accessories like myself, look no further. The wallet is great because you can never have too many (especially if it's Gucci), and the Saint Laurent clutch is perfect for someone that's a fan of luxe portfolios. The only downside is that it is suede, so the person you gift it to has to be extremely careful! Regardless, it's a stunning piece.
For The Writer
Last but not least is this brass writing set. I know in today's society everyone is glued to their phones and forgets that you have the ability to write with a pen and paper, but for those of you who like jotting down notes or writing "the old fashioned way", this set is awesome. Not only is it functional, but it's super luxe too.
Inside the fancy walnut presentation case is a brass pen, a brass pencil and a cool two-tone carrying case. Don't get me wrong, I may not write by hand that often, but if I received this gift for Christmas I would be over the moon! Santa, are you listening LOL?...
