Hugh Hefner stuck with silk, but it’s not really all that breathable and anyway, who wants to come across as an ageing Lothario? No. For a true gent who likes his luxuriously soft nightwear – you can’t go wrong with brushed cotton.

Perfect for chilly nights in – he can mix and match the bottoms with different t-shirts to suit his mood. This tartan loungewear set is made for evenings by the fire with a piece of shortbread and a warm mug of Ovaltine.

2. The ultimate leather slippers

Delivered in a quality shoebox, as a thoughtful gift they’re in a different league to your average high street store offerings – a pair of slippers like this is the perfect present for the discerning gent in your life.

What do you buy for a country-loving gent? Easy – this dapper tweed men’s gilet looks just as good with a pair of muddy wellies in the fields as it does with his favourite brogues while running errands around town.

Every modern British gent needs a cap to keep the wind and rain off. It’ll give him style points whether he’s nipping out for his mid-morning caffeine boost, or stopping for lunch at a country pub after a long weekend walk.

Sleek and minimalist, our beautifully made flat caps are constructed from the finest British tweed using time-honoured methods. Small enough to pop into his stocking, this is a gift he’ll enjoy for many years to come.

9. Stylish tweed gloves

Tweed is an everlasting men’s wardrobe favourite. At this time of year, a pair of tweed gloves is the perfect accessory to keep him warm on a long walk, and when it’s time to get back to the grindstone, these are perfectly smart enough to keep his hands warm on cold morning commutes. Alternatively, choose a smart pair of soft leather gloves in brown or black.

10. Dapper men’s leather belt

Looking for the best in belts? This casual brown leather belt will age gracefully, ensuring that – like him – it will only get better as time goes on.

How about something a little more snappy and unusual? Braces demand boldness, so embrace some colour here. Navy blue braces brighten up even the most dreary February day, or lean into seasonal colours with snazzy burgundy.
