Whether you’re planning on giving - and in need of inspiration – or hoping to receive – and looking to compile your wish list – there’s no shortage of stylish gift ideas, whatever your budget.

Whether it’s wallet-friendly accessories such as bags and cufflinks, classic blazers, made-to-measure shirts or fail-safe gift cards, we’ve got all bases covered. All you need to do is select, purchase (or, if you’re hoping to receive, share your wish list) and enjoy. Happy shopping!


Whether it’s a stylish briefcase, a trendy messenger bag or a versatile travel/weekend bag, Saddler’s luxurious leather designs tick every box and are a stylish fusion of form and function.

For the man who has everything, it’s hard to look beyond something made-to-measure, which can be crafted to the wearer’s exact tastes and measurements.

Whether it’s a shirt or, further up the price scale, a suit, the luxury of made-to-measure is hard to beat. It’s also hard to give up, once you’ve experienced the superior fit and feel. Be warned: it could be the start of a lifelong habit

Made to measure


Outerwear takes on heightened importance in the winter months, so picking a coat or jacket that provides both warmth and style is imperative.

With everything from trendy options such as Gant’s zip-up, bomber-style Pilot jackets and insulating down jackets to more conservative styles, including quilted Barbour coats and waxed jackets, you are sure to be covered.

A man’s choice of footwear speaks volumes – and that’s why an elegant pair of shoes is always a wise investment.

From covetable casual designs — Chelsea boots, tasselled loafers and punched hole, leather sneakers  — to elegant formal options — punch toe leather brogues, dapper monk straps and classic Derbys, our selection cover all bases.

The cooler season calls for warmer fabrics, and that’s why every winter wardrobe is worthy of some smart knitwear. With prices starting from €80 and designs from the likes of Paul & Shark and Hugo Boss encompassing everything from classic crew- and V-necks to half-zip sweaters, there’s no better time to get kitted out for some knitwear.




Your wallet says way more about you than where you bank, so invest wisely. If your current one is looking bruised, battered or fit-to-burst, you might like to replace it with something more classy.

Bellroy’s hide and seek designs will keep bank notes in pristine condition, while Hugo Boss's Money Clip will keep everything nice and organised. And for those with an extensive collection of credit or loyalty cards, or simply require something with room to spare, look to the larger sleeve wallets, which provide plenty of bang for your buck.



Think of a scarf as punctuation on a man’s look - subtle, declarative, or simply the piece that holds everything together. It's functional (warm and insulating), yet adds a layer of sophistication and complexity without being too fussy. And, rather handily, it won’t cost the earth – Weaver and Wilde's effortlessly elegant designs start at just €59.





Even if you’re in the throes of some financial belt-tightening, a classic belt is always a smart purchase. Priced from €60, these handsome leather designs from Hugo Boss, Leyva and Lindenmann encompass formal and casual options.



Now the tie is no longer a mandatory accessory, it has become more of a statement of personal style. And that’s why it pays to pick one with the utmost of care. Whether it’s a classic plain, a daring patterned design or something with a pop of colour, a great tie will always ensure the wearer is ahead by a neck.


If in doubt, there’s nothing like the failsafe option of a gift card, which allows the recipient to pick what and when he wants. And, unlike many stores, Louis Copeland’s gift cards have no time limit or expiry date. All in good time, as they say.
