With Halloween and Bonfire Night long gone, attentions are turning now towards December. Love it or hate it; there is no doubt the Christmas shopping season is in full swing, as we witnessed at Spirit of Christmas at the start of this month. The more organised among you may already have done most of your shopping and perhaps dare I say it even enjoyed it! However, for most of us Christmas shopping can be a stress and one that is only made worse by those awkward people to buy for, you all know who you are… As we like to help keep life as stress free as possible here at Bowler & Beach HQ we have compiled a little gift guide of five great Christmas gifts for him this year.
The ‘Stag’ swim short by Bowler & Beach (£89)
No Christmas gift guide is complete without a pair of our high quality handmade swim shorts. The ‘Stag’ or Reindeer being the perfect short for a Christmas gift for obvious reasons, but we feel the short is great all year round and the mint green colouring will be sure to be a head turner on any beach next year.
The Darlington belt by Brydon Brothers (£55)
We love the Brydon Brothers belts, they are simple, stylish and most of all high quality. We love the colour combinations on the Darlington, perfect to go with those autumnal outfits, and each belt comes in a bag inside a great wooden display box making it the perfect gift.
Gruhme No. 14 fragrance by Gruhme (£45)
You can’t go far wrong with a fragrance as a gift for a man, and with Gruhme you get a very masculine autumnal scent which is perfect to be worn as a winter fragrance. Before, reaching for another bottle from one of the huge fashion houses this year, think twice and support a growing British brand with a great and elegant fragrance made in Britain.
Grahams Port bond by Grahams (from £79)
What is the point in Christmas without your favourite tipple?! We love our port, and had a great time doing a tour of Graham’s wine lodge whilst out in Porto visiting the factory recently. Graham’s launched the world’s first Port bond in 2015 allowing people to buy vintage Port in the year it is harvested. A great gift for anyone who appreciates a smooth drop of Port at this time of year.
Vallance bag by Oppermann London (£275)
If the budget stretches a little more for your loved one we absolutely love the handcrafted bags on offer from Oppermann London. The bags are inspired by Swedish minimalism with a twist of London style, combining the best quality materials with high quality craftsmanship we are sure you would agree the end result is simply stunning.
