We’ve comprised a list of luxury gift ideas to make it a bit easier for you to get the festive shopping off your to-do list.
Men are the most notoriously difficult to buy gifts for, but we were up for the challenge.
Every man should have a high-quality flask he can carry around with ease. Let’s face it – men can get up to all sorts of activities, from going fishing with a buddy to attending a formal event, a flask that’s reserved for their favourite drink will always come in handy. Deciding which one to get can be a challenge, our recommendation is the “Pewter and Bournville Leather Hip Flask”. Not only is it stylish and made in the UK, it also comes in either a black or tan leather – your choice.

Buying something for someone’s home can be very personal, but when done right makes a great gift. You don’t have to worry about getting the size right the way you do clothing and when you know someone well enough, you can gauge what the style of their home is. Here are some of the best subtle yet stylish home gifts we could find.
One of the best ways to decorate a home is with a bookshelf, or just a stack of books on a singular shelf or window sill. What adds an extra bit of a taste is a pair of great bookends. We love these as a gift as they can hold so much personality – from getting figurines to just a great pattern, the opportunities are endless and really allow you to show a person that you know them well. If you’re looking for something with a bit more of a simple, classy look – head straight to Coniston Stonecraft!
