Quality over quantity 

When it comes to finding the perfect gifts for him, quality goes a long way. That’s why our A5 Brown Leather folio. comes top of the list. Its robust design comes with Italian nappa leather which is soft yet durable, and only looks better over time. Accompany it with a personalised diary for dad and you’ve got the ideal present. 

Stripped back design 

When it comes to homeware, understated design is a sure-fire hit. Luckily, we’ve travelled the globe to find the best homeware brands. And tastemakers will love this concrete vase from Turkish designers GRØN. Sleek, strong and hardwearing, this eye-catching design brings some stipped back chic to bedrooms and living spaces. It looks great on its own or filled with dried eucalyptus. A subtly stylish birthday gift for him.  


Fuss-free grooming

Thanks to the latest wave of male grooming brands, there’s no excuse for boys not to look their best. But when it comes to gifting, keep it simple. First-time groomers will love this beard care serum from beauty experts Ferris & Harding. Enriched with 7 revitalising oils including Argan oil, Jojoba oil, Sweet almond oil and Vitamin E, it leaves beards irresistibly soft and tamed. A welcome addition to any gent’s bathroom routine. 


But first… coffee 

Coffee has quickly become a staple study for men. But they don’t need to know a Guatemalan cortado from a Venetian flat white to appreciate a great brew. This daily blend espresso from Caravan Coffee is a classic concoction that is perfect for everyday use. Filled with notes of almond and caramel, it will appease even the fiercest coffee critic. It makes the perfect addition to a foodie gift box. 


Who doesn’t love socks?

Socks have certainly come a long way. Once the much-maligned stocking filler, they’ve now become fashion staples for discerning gents. These amber merino wool numbers from Monarch of Naples provide comfort and support as well as head-turning design. In fact, these socks are everything a classic gift for him should be – stylish and practical with a healthy slice of fun.
