Five of the Best: Christmas gifts for him

Matthew Steeples selects five gifts that gentlemen will most definitely welcome this Christmas

 

Gentlemen – especially those with money – aren’t the easiest people to buy gifts for at any time of year, but here I’ve chosen five Christmas gifts for him that will appeal and are suitable for those on budgets both large and small:

 

Rolls-Royce cocktail hamper – £26,000

Five of the Best: Christmas gifts for himAn edition of just fifteen, drinks aficionados with Rolls-Royce buying power will love this handcrafted American walnut and unmarked leather cocktail hamper. Created with the assistance of The Dorchester Collection, it includes handmade decanters and tumblers, a cocktail shaker, an ice bucket and all the other kit you’ll require. It’s certainly an ideal gift for the man who likes it expensively shaken, not stirred.

 

Signed copy of Sod the bitches! by Steven Berkoff – £10

Five of the Best: Christmas gifts for himMost men will have encountered at least one in his life (and many a bastard too) but Steven Berkoff’s first novel will amuse and shock in equal measure. Signed copies are available to the first hundred online orders received.

 

‘The Driver’ driving shoes by Fairfax & Favor – £120

Five of the Best: Christmas gifts for himDescribed as Fairfax & Favor’s “take on a classic driving shoe” and handmade in Portugal, these shoes feature a full rubber studded sole and the firm’s signature tassel. They are extremely comfortable and great value compared to a pair of Tod’s.

 

Gillhams Gravel Rake – £84 to £108

Five of the Best: Christmas gifts for himMoving on from drivers to the man with a vast gravel driveway, Peter Burrell has created a bit of kit that owners of such will come to find essential. The Gillhams Gravel Rake has secured endorsements from Lord Bamford, Frankie Dettori and the Earl of March and will ensure the effects of a visit from a friend with a Lamborghini are quickly rectified.

 

Brigade Red and Marine Blue socks from A Hume – £11.50

Five of the Best: Christmas gifts for himGranny has undoubtedly gifted some shocking jumpers and socks over the years, but these soft 90% cotton socks are made by Scott Nichol in the UK and will appeal to any gent. They’ll suit just as well in the city as in the country.

  1. You are right about the shoes. Much better value than Tod’s. I’ve noticed the quality of their shoes to have declined as the prices have gone up. I paid over £300 for a pair and they lasted only months. Very disappointing and I did buy a pair of the Fairfax ones after a previous Steeples Times feature and they are really hardwearing as well as comfortable and looking swell.
