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

Perfect to wear as a set when the weather’s chilly – during the summer, he can mix and match the bottoms with a simple t-shirt. These navy and maroon tartan pyjamas are made for evenings by the fire, wrapped in his dressing gown, with perhaps a piece of shortbread and an Ovaltine to make him sleepy.

2. Cosy leather slippers

The Rolls Royce of slippers, these handcrafted leather mules are beautifully constructed to include a fully padded footbed and luxury leather lining. Rugged slip-resistant soles make them ideal for popping out to the log pile or lazing around the house.

It’s the details that make them such a thoughtful gift. Packaged in a high quality box, they’re in a different league to your average high street chain store offerings – a pair of slippers like this is the perfect gift for the discerning gent in your life.

3. Pure lambswool scarf

The perfect accessory to keep him toasty on a Christmas walk across frost-crisped fields, this decadently soft lambswool scarf is sure to be a hit with men of all ages.

A men’s wardrobe standard, this classic navy number coordinates with more or less everything he owns – and if you buy him a red scarf too, he’ll be covered for all eventualities. It’s the perfect way to exude an air of sophistication on even the greyest of January days.

Buying cufflinks for a bloke? Keep it simple – just because a fellow likes to be dapper doesn’t mean he wishes to parade about looking like a mad parrot.

Featuring a minimalist four ridge centre feature, these cufflinks really do make the perfect Christmas gift for the man in your life, and as an added bonus, they come in a beautiful gift box – perfect for tucking inside a stocking.

5. Country tie

Delivered in a stylish presentation box, this navy blue wool and silk country tie features traditional construction to ensure it drapes beautifully. An enduring favourite of the British gent, this is a classic accessory for anyone who feels there’s life in the old dog yet.

Give your man a blazer upgrade by gifting a pure silk square. Available in red, white and blue, these squares come beautifully packaged in ribbon-tied envelopes. A classy addition to any suit, wearing a silk square in the breast pocket is a great way to personalise men’s formal wear.

If your chap prefers a cotton square in his suit pocket to battle the seasonal sniffles, stuff his stocking with some deluxe, wonderfully soft 100% cotton handkerchiefs instead.

8. Leather wallet

Every modern British gent needs a sleek leather wallet. It’ll give him style points whether he’s paying for his mid-morning caffeine boost, or picking up the drinks tab after work.

A genuine waxed leather wallet ages gracefully, ensuring that – like him – it will only get better as time goes on. Sleek and minimalist, this beautifully lined wallet is supplied in a smart presentation box.

9. Leather & 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 plain leather gloves in brown or black.

10. Plaited men’s leather belt

How about something a little more unusual? Braces demand boldness, so embrace some colour here. Navy blue braces will brighten up even the most dreary February day. Or lean into seasonal colours with a set in polka-dot burgundy.
