This is not a drill, it’s less than 6 weeks until Christmas and this morning we came to the completely earth shattering realisation that it’s time to stop buying for ourselves (yes, I’m throwing a tantrum in the office as I write this) and time to knuckle down and start buying gifts for the other people in our lives. And every year I go through the same routine of spending weeks hunting for the perfect gift for the gals in my life: A new handbag, those trainers that they mentioned were kind of cool in a passing conversation back in September, the perfect eyeshadow palette chosen from a carefully compiled shortlist where I take everything from their eye colour to the shades that they tend to lean towards when it comes to their clothes into consideration, and find myself in late December scrambling for gifts for men. What is it about buying for men that is so damn difficult? This year I’m absolutely determined to fully put an end to my least favourite tradition, and this is the year that I’m going to be as organised as ever by compiling the ultimate gift guide for menswear!
Columbia was just one of the amazing brands that we got to stock this year, and we were so excited for their comfortable, in style and innovative products just like this jacket. It’s made from a water resistant shell and also contains 650-Fill down insulation making for maximum comfort and warmth. This one is ideal for the man that loves the outdoors and due to the high quality fabric and neutral colour would be a real investment piece that would last for years to come and would go with any outfit.
The lightweight material of this one would make it the perfect piece for layering during the colder months while the microfleece material is ideal for added warmth when outdoors. At just €30 this fleece would be a great last minute top-up gift and would become a real wardrobe staple due to the simple style and ultimate comfort! Along with this fleece comes the guarantee that we won't say anything when this fleece somehow finds it's way into your own wardrobe instead of your partner's by the New Year!
We’re huge believers that nobody can have too many pairs of joggers, which is why I’m sure I’ll be adding a few pairs of these joggers from Columbia to my basket this year (fine, at least one will be for myself but can you blame me?) The super soft fleece lining makes for maximum comfort during those much needed cosy days throughout the Christmas season while the tapered leg ensures that the style is fresh and on-trend. What more could you ask for?
Is there anything an Irish man loves more than his checked shirts? The subtle colours of this one mean that it can be worn with any outfit, and let’s face it, it’s a well needed change from the usual red and blue tones of years gone by! The best part is that it’s completely versatile, as it can be worn buttoned up for a dressy look, or worn open over a white t-shirt for a more relaxed, casual feel!
When it comes to buying gifts for men you can never go wrong with a hoodie as this style staple never seems to miss! We love the bold colour of this one as a way to brighten up your wardrobe and really make a statement when it comes to day-to-day style!
If you’re looking to switch up someone’s wardrobe then a classy knit sweatshirt is always a good go-to! We love the autumnal colour of this one that’s a nice change from the usual black or grey sweatshirts but is still simple enough to not overpower the outfit. This is one piece that will never fail to dress up any outfit!
