Are you one of those men who has trouble differentiating Primark from Prada? Well, if you’re a hopeless boyfriend when it comes to expensive gift giving, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s a list of perfect presents that will easily earn you a year’s worth of brownie points:
Charlotte Tilbury – Miss Kensington Look (€250).
Inspired by the haughty but naughty girls of the swinging sixties, this gift set is comprised of the coveted limited edition products from Charlotte Tilbury’s “Norma Parkinson” collection. This is a luxury offering and is available here from Brown Thomas. It will make any girl squeal with delight – well worth every penny!
Carvela – Black “Sammy” Over-The-Knee Boots (€240).
Over-the-knee boots are hugely popular at the moment and this pair from Carvela are fabulous. If the lady in your life dreams of ransacking Kendall Jenner’s wardrobe, then these are a sure bet. Available here from Debenhams.
Tessa Metcalfe – Rings on Rings / Emerald & Peridot (£220).
This beautiful piece of jewellery is handmade by London designer, Tessa Metcalfe. I came across Tessa’s work a few years ago and have been dying to purchase a piece ever since. Bank balance willing, I will soon be adding this beauty to my collection. Set into this ring are a Columbian emerald and a pretty pale green peridot – well worth every penny! Available here from London Rocks.
Armani Prive – “Cuir Noir” (€215).
This one is a dark, provocative perfume with leather accents. Although it is a very strong scent, I think it makes the perfect “night-time” fragrance. Available here from Brown Thomas.
Jo Malone London – Wood Sage and Sea Salt Cologne (€105).
This fragrance is much lighter than the Armani Prive blend. The “Wood Sage and Sea Salt Cologne” stole my heart in seconds. Upon application, I was transported to a windswept haven – I could almost taste the bitter sea water. I am sick to death of “tropical” beach scents and this perfume offers a beautiful alternative. I love the notes of sage which add a delicate woody fragrance. It’s a soothing scent, reminiscent of rugged cliffs. This cologne has become my signature scent – you can read my full review here. The perfume is available here from Brown Thomas.
Wolford – Cara Swarovski Crystal Tights (€139).
These tights will make any woman feel like Beyonce – enough said. Available here from Brown Thomas.
Kate Spade New York – Cedar Street Maise Bag (€335).
Dear Santa… This beauty is available here from Brown Thomas.
That’s all for now folks. What do you think of my picks? And, more importantly – what would you choose if money was no object?
