Christmas is almost upon us! But if you’re anything like us, this time of year can be filled with just as much stress as it does merriment. So to save you a mad dash around the High Street on Christmas Eve, we’ve put together a set of Christmas Gift Guides which should have all bases covered when buying for an average Joe. In this guide, we’ll be covering Fashion and all things Style and Grooming!
Fred Perry Navy Waffle Sweater
With the chill settling in, some thick jumpers are always welcome at Christmas. And we love this Fred Perry Navy Waffle Sweater available at Pritchards. Made from 100% fine cotton and featuring an incredibly soft feel, this winter warming waffle sweater is perfect for any occasion and will look just as good at the Christmas party as it will in the office.
Panasonic ER-GB86 Beard & Hair Trimmer
A trimmer is the perfect grooming gift for Joes with beards this Christmas and we love the jack of all trades ER-GB86 from Panasonic. Featuring a powerful cutting motor, GB86’s wider blades, 58 versatile cutting lengths and three settings ensure this multi-functional trimmer achieves flawless facial hair, as well as the smoothest cut on top.
Sandqvist Cordura Travel Bag
If he’s heading away this winter, a travel bag is a great present option, and we’ve always found the Scandinavians do luggage better than anyone. Which is why we love this Cordura Travel Bag from famed Swedish accessories brand Sandqvist. Designed and developed in conjunction with Volvo Cars, the Cordura is lightweight, water-resistant and almost impossible to tear. It has an adjustable and removable shoulder strap, as well as a three outside zipper pockets on the front and sides. Inside, there´s a padded bottom and two inner zipper pockets. It’s the perfect bag for long weekends away.
Frank Wright Navy Detroit Nubuck Derby Shoe
Website: Frank Wright
A pair of Derby shoes are an essential in any respectable Joe’s wardrobe and this AW18, we love these Detroit Nubucks in Navy by Frank Wright. Having been making shoes since 1885, Frank Wright knows a thing or two about high quality footwear and these Derbys are guaranteed to complete essentially any look. Featuring rich navy nubuck uppers and contrasting cork and white rubber sole units, they’re a little more contemporary than other Derbys and we think that makes them perfect for those office-to-bar days.
Harry’s Winter Winston Set
Praised for its durability, controlled shave and clean design, Harry’s Winston is simple one of the best affordable razors on the market. Which means this Winter Winston Gift Set is the ideal Xmas gift for the clean shaven Joe. The razor itself comes in two-sided festive tones, while the set is completed by three German-engineered blade cartridges – each with a flex hinge and lubricating strip – some Foaming Shave Gel for a rich lather and a Travel Cover to protect blades when you’re on the move. Finally it’s presented in a lovely gift box tailor-made for Christmas.
Helly Hansen Lifaloft Insulator Vest
Website: Helly Hansen
Stay warm without the bulk and weight this winter with this new Lifaloft Insulated Vest from Helly Hansen. Perfect for the festive season (and all year round adventures), this Gilet-style vest is constructed from a PFC free and windproof fabric and offers superb insulation during chilly conditions thanks to the revolutionary Lifaloft material. The fibres also won’t absorb water, meaning it has inherit water repellence without the need for treatment. The ideal winter warmer.
New Balance 247 Luxe Crew
Website: New Balance
Another sweater staple perfect for winter is this New Balance 247 Luxe Crew. Ideal for the office as well as en-route to the gym, the double-knit modal/cotton fabric comes in a relaxed fit and delivers premium softness that also means it’s great for winter lounging. Athletic design details like the rib neck and flying NB logo finish this luxe-sport garment off in style.
The Bluebeards Revenge Soap Stack Kit
Website: The Bluebeards Revenge
For Joe with beards, we’ve always loved The Bluebeards Revenge range of shaving and grooming products. This Christmas, we’d recommend the Soap Stack Kit which features three colourful scented soaps sure to bring luxurious suds to every shower or bath. This bundle includes 1 x Classic Ice Soap, 1 x Big Blue Bar of Soap for Blokes, and 1 x Cuban Gold Soap with rich aromas of exotic Caribbean oils.
SunGod Classics Sunglasses
While we’re not expecting blazing sunshine on these shores this winter, it’s far from unusual for Joes to head abroad to warmer pastures during the season. Not only that, ski season is fully underway, so a good pair of sunglasses is an essential part of any travel bag. We love these completely customisable SunGod Classics. At SunGod you can choose your Fronts, Lens and Arms from a range of colours and designs for the ultimate in personalisation. Not only do they look the part, they perform too – SunGod’s advanced 4KO Lenses offer enhanced contrast and optimised clarity, while their market-leading triple-layer scratch protection ensures your lenses remain in the best condition.
