Jo Malone London | Men's Christmas Gift Sets

For the first time in the history of Jo Malone London, they are presenting 2 dedicated Men’s Collections for Christmas. Jo Malone London are incontestable pioneers in the art of giving and thankfully for us gentlemen, after much lobbying from yours truly, they have subverted the rules. 

I got an awesome response from my last Jo Malone London Back to School post where I learnt to finish a candle, tie a bow to a box (much needed for my Christmas gifts) and how to combine a fragrance.

I've already chalked up a Top 5 Jo Malone London scents listicle and I was honoured to be the first UK Menswear blogger to report the Huntsman X Jo Malone London Fragrance release last month. (I tried to incept the 'makes perfect scents' into the zeitgeist, but alas...). 

I'm super-excited about these new men's collections that I was sent in the post. They are sleek, in black sets congruent with many of my go-to colour palettes for clothes, interiors etc. 

First New Men’s Set: ‘English Oak & Hazelnut 30ml Cologne and Basil & Neroli Body & Hand Wash’ (£62)

Second New Men’s Set: ‘Wood Sage & Sea Salt 100ml Cologne and Black Cedarwood & Juniper Duo’ (£109)

Both of these Jo Malone London Men’s Collections are now available to purchase.  Find the closest one to you, available in 55 countries worldwide, by searching visiting their online store.

Jo Malone London are the synthesis between aspirational grooming and fantasy gift-giving. These colognes emit masculinity, project strongly and have incredible silage. Perfect for any Christmas black tie parties. 

Ladies I'd say this is a perfect gift for that sophisticated man in your life. The Jo Malone London Men's Collections could offer a much needed departure from his lacklustre grooming routine. 

Fathers Day Wrapped Up - A Gift Guide for Fathers Day 2016

FATHER'S DAY 2016, SUNDAY 19TH JUNE

Fathers Day is a day to celebrate everything our Dads do for us. Other than being a great Dad, Granddad and husband, my Father is also a great DIY handyman, taxi, cook (BBQ only), gardener and dog sitter! For all of his hard work, I got my Dad a Bee Home for the garden last year...a present that is still in it's box! So this year I'm starting early to come up with something a little bit better than that. Here are my top picks.

 

SHIRTY DAD

SAVILE ROW DAD

LOVES SHOES?

AND TIES...

OR SOCKS!

CASUAL DAD

FOREVER YOUNG DAD

SPORTY DAD

HE LOVES GARDENING...

AND THE OUTDOORS

FOODY DAD

A LITTLE TIPPLE

BEARDY DAD

MEN'S JEWELLERY - GIFT IDEAS

It may be too early for most of you to talk anything Christmas related, but the supermarkets have started to sell Christmas crackers - so officially the cats out the bag, its Christmas buying season! So this year my family (Mum, Dad, Brother & Sister) have decided to do 'Secret Santa' which if you have never done it...is where everyones name goes into a hat and each person draws a name and buys that person their Christmas present for a fixed budget. The anticipation of the draw compares to an FA Cup Semi-Final where in some respects drawing my Dad is like drawing Chelsea at home - you sigh and wish the draw could be re-taken. If buying for your Dad is equally as difficult as buying for mine, then this little blog may help you out.

I have decided to review the Tresor Paris Men's gift set which consists of a tie-bar, a pair of cuff links and a money clip. This gift set is available in rose rose and stainless steel colours for £147 but if that is a bit punchy, you can also purchase each item separately. The design is exceptional with the small hexagon details, contemporary and stylish for a sartorial gent.

Sorry Dad but if you are reading this, chances are you'll get Costa Coffee and Cinema vouchers like last year! Ha joking, as I didn't get you in the secret santa draw....or did I?!!
