The fashionable man’s Christmas gift guide

Even the biggest grinches among us would be hard pressed to deny that the festive season is well and truly on its way. In a few weeks, the UK will be swept into unrelenting Christmas fever, whether we’re ready for it or not.

The good news is that Christmas is the perfect time to give your winter wardrobe a mid-season refresh, so you might want to make sure that some of these stylish gems sit atop your wishlist this year.

Accessories

Accessories are the quickest way to update your winter wardrobe with minimal effort. Men’s gift guides are usually filled with watches, wallets and scarfs and for good reason – they’re staple pieces and you can never have too much choice.

Watches are a great investment piece to add to your Christmas wishlist. Opt for one with a tan leather strap to give any outfit a classic, gentlemanly vibe, or take a look at metal straps if you’re after an accessory that will instantly update your look.

Knitwear

Knitwear is a staple year round, especially if you’re in the UK. Finding high quality pieces that will last you more than one season is usually a matter of considerable investment, but it is becoming easier to find luxe knitwear at a snip of the price on the high street.

Jumpers made from 80% lambswool can be picked from the rails at Tu at Sainsbury’s this year. The jumpers come in a wide range of colours and you’d be forgiven for adding more than one to your wishlist.

Shoes

We at Flush the Fashion firmly believe that no man can ever have too many pairs of shoes. Trainers, loafers, boots, brogues – there’s a style for every occasion, and it’s always a thrill to find a shoebox waiting underneath the tree come Christmas morning.

We practically lived in trainers throughout 2016 and the trend looks set to be huge again next year. Now is the ideal time to freshen up your sneaker game, so take a look at some of the newest styles to hit the market. Make a change from the usual black and white pairs and opt for a stylish neutral, such as beige or khaki green. If you go for something bright and daring, pair with a simple jeans and t-shirt combination to balance out the look.

Bags

Much like shoes, we’ve never met a man who owns too many bags. Whether for work or play, the days of the unflattering ‘man bag’ are well and truly over and there are a wealth of different styles to choose from, from high street right up to high end.

A classic tan satchel never looks out of place and can be easily dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Whether you’re heading into the office or out for a hot date, it’s a staple piece that you’re sure to get plenty of use from season after season.
