Each Friday from now until Christmas we will be featuring some of the wonderful items we have spotted in our travels that you might like to give (or receive) this festive season.
We love the ‘Make it British’ web site http://makeitbritish.co.uk/ not just because all the products are British made but also because they demonstrate the ability of the UK to produce great quality innovative gifts.
Who doesn’t like a candle? These beautiful candles from ‘A Life with a View’ come is four evocative scents in room candles, travel candles and room diffusers.
We’d plump for The view of Provence but we were very tempted by the New York loft. http://www.alifewithaview.com/shop/a-view-of-provence-the-gite/a-view-of-provence-the-gite-scented-candle/
We love the Tatty Devine ‘speech bubble jewelry’ These personalised perspex speech bubble necklaces come with a golden chain and your chosen words laser-etched and then inked in black. Be creative or choose a favourite song lyric, a line you love from the movies or your catchphrase. At the price they would make a wonderful stocking filler. https://www.tattydevine.com/speech-bubble-necklace.html?131112
This beautiful printed vermillion wool scarf is made by Taisir Gibreel who we found through ‘Make it British’ Her work a compelling narrative which is the cornerstone of her designs.
Taisir’s Father was Sudanese and Mother is English, having grown up in Sudan and moved to the UK at 17, her work reflects her background, an eclectic cultural fusion, set against the colours, shapes and textures of the Scottish Highlands.
We love cravat’s as you know, after all we initiated cravat Friday! We especially love the cravat’s from our good friends the Cravat club. This stunning liquid blue number is certain to get you noticed.
They have a huge range to chose from. Add one to your Christmas list and join the Perfect Gentleman on Cravat Friday and make the world a more Gentlemanly place.
We find that a hip flask is a necessity these days whether its cold or very cold. A quick nip from a flask warms a country walk or a cold start to the day watching the cricket.
Most flask owners will tell you that the biggest issue is losing the top so this stylish leather bound flask from Ettinger is just the ticket.
If you are serious about your cooking and your food as many of us here at the Perfect Gentleman are. This heavy duty denim apron is not for the kitchen dilettante.
Only serious chef’s need apply. But if that is your role in your household we think it looks like one of the best uses of denim we have ever seen.
Certainly much better than using it for trousers!
Look ahead to the next glorious British Summer and imagine yourself on a warm day surrounded by bees and butterflies and emboldened with Pimms as you gently bat a ball back and forth across the sward.
How else would a Gentleman be equipped for such fun but with the beautifully British made games from Charlie Noble.
