And just like that, it’s Christmas. The year has flown by and we can’t believe we’re writing this here Christmas guide. But nonetheless, we know it will be of great worth, as each and every year us guys tend to leave our gift giving to the last minute. Are we right?
And while some of the below items might burst the Kris Kringle cap, we guarantee they’ll impress anyone. So, we’ve rounded up our best Christmas Gifts for you or your picky mates who really have got it all…
Something for the sun
Maui Jim – Prescription sunnies
Game.changer. We’re no longer trading off between vision and comfort. We’ve just picked up a pair of prescription sunglasses from Maui Jim and wondered why we never got onto this earlier. They’re not cheap, but are backed with a serious warranty – so even if you snap your frames because you left them on the seat of your car, you’ll be sorted. They also do gift vouchers, too, which is great for Christmas giving.
Frescobol Carioca – Swim shorts
Ditch the speedos this summer and invest in a stylish pair of tailored swim shorts that will see you from the beach to bar in true style. A pair of Frescobols can literally be worn everywhere throughout the summer, and thanks to their construction, they look great matched with a linen shirt.
Luca Faloni – Linen pants
Light, breathable and extremely chic, Luca Faloni garments are made with style and integrity, straight from Italy. Get into some Luca Faloni linen trousers for the summer ahead, and you’ll wonder why you ever owned a pair of shorts in the past…
Laboratorio Olfattivo – Fragrance Discovery Set
Finding the perfect fragrance is tough, we get it. Take the time to appreciate the nuances through daily use with these sample kits from one of our favourite perfume house, Laboratorio Olfattivo. When you’re ready to buy, they’ll apply a $50 credit to your next bottle… talk about a low-risk investment!
Casamigos – Tequila
For when you can’t get to Mexico but want the closest thing. Casamigos Tequila is a fantastic drop for those looking to enter the bracket of sipping rather than shotting…
Plus, anything that George Clooney backs has our tick of approval.
Roccbox – Portable pizza oven
Ever wanted to make Neapolitan-style pizzas in the comfort of your home? Well, now you can with the Roccbox by Gozney – the world’s first portable wood-fired pizza oven. Save time and use gas, also, and watch as restaurant-quality pizzas are pumped out in little under 60 seconds.
We promise this gift will not disappoint.
The Resort Co – Luxury thongs
Your favourite summer footwear is now upgraded. The classic thong is back but in new and stylish ways unseen before. One of our favourite new labels is The Resort Co, who are making high-quality thongs straight from Italy.
Think black Saffiano leather, navy suede and Raffa canvas, handcrafted in the Italian region of Tuscany with leathers from Santa Croce and premium Italian EVA.
Truff – Hot sauce
We’re obsessed with this new truffle-infused hot sauce by Aussie brand Truff, which adds a depth of flavour to any style of food. It’s a mild-to-medium heat hot sauce with a specific focus on flavour – but it’s definitely not going to burn your tongue off. Truff use Organic Agave Nectar from Jalisco to help balance out the spice and truffle combination so you will get a nice little sweetness in the flavour profile. Best of all, it’s gluten and vegan free.
Martell Blue Swift – Fine spirit
Martell Blue Swift is the first-ever spirit drink made of cognac VSOP and finished in bourbon casks. What results is a beautiful spirit with delicate notes of candied fruit and plum, complemented by the subtle sweetness of vanilla and toasted oaks from the bourbon casks from Kentucky. It’s exceptionally smooth with a rounded taste and distinct character that can be enjoyed neat, on the rocks or in classic cocktails. We’ll raise a glass to that!
July – Carry on Luggage
Getting away for the holidays? Journey in style with a carry-on luggage piece by July. Smart, stylish and practical, this little baby is all you need for a weekend getaway. It has great compartment space, it’s super lightweight and its handle extension is perfect for those short, tall and anyone in between.
And better yet, it features a portable charger for when you need some extra juice for that Instagram post.
Edifier – S2000 Pro bookshelf speakers
If you know someone looking for the perfect sound system for their turntable, stereo or television set up, a look into the new Edifier S2000 Pro Bookshelf speaker comes highly recommended.
Made with some of the best, high-end components, the audio quality that comes with these speakers is pleasantly surprising, especially at its affordable price point.
Merry Christmas from the team at Man of Style. Here’s to 2020!
