It’s already upon us! That time of year when the Christmas marketing machine revs up and we all start panicking over what to buy for our loved ones.
It seems that even though there are more and more options available, gift buying only ever seems to get harder. Whilst many now seem to wait until the infamous Black Friday weekend to do our Christmas shopping, it’s not always practical to leave things until the end of November; some people like to be organised weeks in advance and, as far as we’re concerned, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that.
For many, though, finding that perfect present for loved ones at Christmas can be nothing short of difficult and a fairly stressful task! Shopping and gift buying doesn’t come naturally to everyone, even those with the best intentions and it can be all too tempting to simply go for a repeat of what went down well last year (and the year before)!
But fear not, we’ve rounded up some of the best options out there for men, women and kids.
1. Mondaine Watch Evo – £159.00 from Wave
Because guys don’t wear as much jewellery as women do, their watches are a big part of their look.
Mondaine watches are beautifully minimal and understated and are not only an elegant addition to his wardrobe, but a practical and legible timepiece.
2. Facial Fuel Favourites – £56.00 from Kiehl’s
Men are increasingly looking after themselves more and more, so why not treat him to this skincare set from Kiehl’s?

1. Refillable Lizard Print Leather Journal – £45.00 from Aspinal of London

2. Pine and Eucalyptus Scent Surround Diffuser – £62.20 from Jo Malone
This scent diffuser from Jo Malone is a beautiful gift, not least because you can have it delivered in a gorgeously wrapped gift box.
