    Men's Christmas Gift Guide 2016

    Continuing with our series of Christmas gift guides, today we are looking at presents for the boys! Whether you know a seriously snappy dresser or a wannabe Bear Grylls, we have the perfect gift. 

    Dapper Chap

    Is your guy always immaculately suited and booted? If he takes pride in being perfectly groomed, L'occitane's A Man's Ritual Set features a combination of full sized favourites like the L'occitan Shower Gel and handy travel sized treats such as L'occitan Aftershave Balm. This kit has everything required for his daily routine whether at home or away. For a little luxury, try the woody, aromatic Lalique Encre Noire Gift Set. 

    If he has always loved the idea of a traditional wet shave, why not try a Gentlemen's Hardware Shaving Kit? This little set has everything a beginner would need, containing a synthetic shaving brush, shaving cream and post shave lotion whilst the products vintage styling is functional yet smart. The Gentlemen's Hardware Enamel Shaving Bowl and Soap is a great alternative to the standard shave cream and comes with a handy bowl. 

    If an outfits finishing touches are more his thing, a quirky set of cufflinks is a great choice. Paul Smith have a fun range to suit every style from the playful Striped Rolling Ball to the contemporary Mother of Pearl Etched Lucky Dice TattooFor a more conservative look, Hugo Boss' Mell Rectangular Geometric Line Cufflinks fit the bill. Elegant and understated, they seamlessly complement any outfit. All of these cufflinks are beautifully packaged in branded gift boxes, a detail the dapper gent will undoubtedly appreciate. A pair of socks can also finish off an outfit perfectly; why not try Paul Smith's Mainline Stripe for a bold, bright take on the signature stripe or Neon Sock  for a more conservative pop of colour. 

    Pocket squares are perfect to accessorise an outfit with, and a gift the Dapper Chap would be sure to appreciate. Silk squares are a popular choice as they have a lovely sheen and look great casually stuffed into a pocket - no fancy folding required. A flash of colour such as Paul Smith's Multi Coloured Union Jack Print Silk Pocket Square would brighten up a dark or neutral toned suit while the Hugo Boss Chevron Print Silk Pocket Square in Navy is best for a more discreet option. They also look great framed and hung on the wall for a unique piece of artwork. 

    Country Gent

    For the gentleman who likes to take life at a leisurely pace complete with long strolls in the countryside, we have the perfect selection of festive gifts. 

    Flat caps are essential for the typical country gent look, whether it be a traditional tweed or a contemporary marl, there is a style to suit every taste. The Barbour Crieff Cap in Khaki Herringbone is a classic country staple constructed from warm lambswool while the Barbour Wax Tartan Flat Cap has a more contemporary feel. Made using 6oz waxed cotton, this cap is hard wearing and great for all weather usage. A tartan lambswool scarf such as the Barbour New Check Tartan Scarf in MacDonald completes the look.

    A true country gent would always have a small hip flask to hand, ready for a sneaky tot! Ted Baker's Stag Hip Flask is slim enough to fit in a jacket pocket and looks the part with a faux leather stag print design. 

    For a stocking filler, you can never go wrong with a pair of socks! Try Barbour's Cheviot Sock in Grey, a classic striped design or for something warmer the Ashby Sock in Navy. Keen hikers will appreciate Barbour Grassmoor Boot Socks which feature cushioned heel, toe and sole sections for extra comfort. 

    Looking for a real treat? A Barbour Waxed Jacket will last for years to come if cared for properly whilst keeping you warm whatever the weather conditions. The Torridon Wax Jacket in Navy is our favourite - casual yet smart, this tailored jacket is practical and can be worn year round; a true wardrobe staple. A tartan shirt such as the Rowlock Tailored Shirt in Grey Marl complements it perfectly. 

    All he needs now is a pair of Hunter Boots to complete the country look. Choose the Mens Norris Field Side Adjustable Boots for general use and muddy walks or try the durable Balmoral range if a heavy duty, performance boot is required.

    If your country gent prefers the indoors to the outdoors, go for a pair of comfortable slippers. Barbour have a fab range to suit every taste, from the full sized Monty Slipper, available in Brown or Classic Tartan to the Watson Mule Suede Slipper, an easy slip on design. All Barbour slippers have warm, faux fur interiors and hard wearing rubber sole so you can nip outside if required. 

    Outdoor Adventurer

    Do you have a Dad who thinks he's Ray Mears? A boyfriend who thinks he's a member of the SAS? A brother who aspires to be the next Arctic Explorer? 

    With the cold winter weather approaching, they are going to need to be kept wrapped up from the elements. A fine knit woollen hat is not only warm; the close fit traps and retains heat much better. Paul Smith's PS Merino Wool Beanie Hat in Navy is warm and doesn't itch like wool sometimes can. It comes in one size only, meaning you don't have to worry if it will fit your recipient.  

    The Hunter Original Rubberised Windbreaker Jacket is a waterproof lightweight coat that can be folded easily into a backpack, so if the weather turns, your adventurer will always be prepared. It has everything required to protect them from the elements: a generous drawstring peaked hood, drawstring sleeves and hem which are great for pulling tight so the wind/rain can't get in, while the bonded pockets are designed to keep their contents safe and dry. 

    If their adventures take them away from home for longer periods of time, a wash bag can make a useful gift. Barbour's Beacon Wash Bag is made from tough canvas, so will stand up to any conditions thrown at it. Being made from fabric rather than leather means this bag can be squashed and manipulated into any bag or holdall with ease; handy if space is at a premium. 

    The Workaholic

    For the gentlemen who are constantly on the go, you need to think smart, classic yet functional gifts. Items that can be used in a multitude of ways are useful, particularly when travelling and space is at a premium. Paul Smith's Cut to Fit Reversible Belt features two different coloured sides, meaning it can be worn either way. This versatile belt can be used in the office, or casually at the weekend. 

    A coordinating wallet and card holder set will always go down a treat - when does a workaholic have time to look for a replacement wallet if their current one is tired? The Hugo Boss Greno Leather Wallet and Card Case Gift Set provides ample space for cards, coins and bank notes and comes beautifully presented in a smart gift box. Simply pop it in a festive gift bag and you are good to go. 

    Want to blow the budget? A bag suitable for both business and pleasure will be much appreciated by the workaholic. The Hugo Boss Noggs Business Briefcase features a detachable shoulder strap, so it can be slung over a shoulder when travelling, but removed upon reaching your destination, turning it back into a standard briefcase. Inside there is are two padded compartments; one suitable for a laptop and the other suitable for a tablet, along with useful phone and pen slots. On the front is a zip pocket big enough to store A4 sized documents while the back pocket has a discreet zip running along the bottom, allowing you to pop it onto suitcase pull handles. The main nylon compartment is hard wearing and practical but the leather trim detailing and handles add a luxurious feel to the bag. It should also be small enough to use as hand baggage with most airlines, although dimensions should always be checked before travelling.

    All items featured can be found in store at Sinclairs Sheffield. Selected items are available on

    Women's Christmas Gift Guide 2016

    It will soon be that magical time of year - Christmas! Love it or hate it, there is no escaping the festive period. It can often be tough deciding what to buy for everyone, so over the next couple of weeks we will be creating a series of gift guides to help make things as easy as possible for you.

    With this in mind, we thought we'd start by popping a little list together of gifts perfect for the women in your life, whether it be your mum, sister, friends or girlfriend. It might even provide you with a few ideas for your Christmas list!

     Beauty Lover

    For the woman who loves her beauty products, a L'occitane Gift Set is a great place to start. They have a wide selection to choose from and all come in gorgeous festive packaging. The Shea Butter Set comes with five different products to try; a 75ml Hand Cream, 10ml Foot Cream, 50g Milk Soap, 100ml Rich Ultra Rich Body Cream and 3ml Lip Balm. These are the perfect size for handbags, travelling or simply trialling a product before buying. And they look so pretty lined up in the bathroom!

    Looking for one simple beauty treat? A good face cream such as Dr Hauschka's Rose Day Cream would be enjoyed by everyone. It is suitable for most skin types, except oily. (Look for an oil such as Dr Hauschka Clarifying Oil if this is the case.) This rich, comforting moisturiser is perfect during the cold winter months with its key ingredients of Rose Petals, Shea Butter and Avacado Oil providing protection and nourishment for skin.

    Skincare addicts will appreciate the luxurious REN Moroccan Rose Otto Body Care range. It smells divine and the essentials oils make skin super soft and silky. Our favourites are the Sugar Body Polish to reveal fresh new skin without dryness or that tight feeling and the Ultra Moisture Body Oil which sinks in quickly leaving the skin glowing and hydrated.  

    Perfume is a staple Christmas gift and for good reason. Beautifully packaged, it not only looks good on a dresser but allows you to smell beautiful too. Perles de Lalique is one of our favourite scents and always a bestseller; a classic fragrance of earthy florals combined with a hint of spice. A spray or two is all you need to last the day. 

    Need a stocking filler, secret santa or table gift? Try splitting a L'occitane Christmas Cracker Trio for three affordable, adorable gifts.


    Know someone who likes the finer things in life? If you after a bit of unique sparkle, Georg Jensen is the place to start. The delicate Daisy jewellery range is a contemporary collection of earrings, necklaces, bracelets and rings. Simple and elegant they are available in two different metals; gold plated silver and rhodium plated silver and two different enamels; black or white. Simply pick the combination that suits best. If you are after more of a statement piece, try the Regitze necklace. Geometric circles of sterling silver contrasts against black agate stones creating a striking look. 

    For true luxury, look no further than a statement bag. Hugo Boss have a gorgeous selection of classic leather bags available in an array of sizes and colours. Our pick would be the Maxine G Bowling Bag in Open Grey; sumptuous, soft grained cowhide leather and gold hardware details make this handbag a truly indulgent treat. A smaller option would be the Hugo Boss Genni wallet. Constructed from the same leather this mini purse has plenty of space for cards and money as well as having a useful mirror inside. 

    For a glitzier option, try Michael Kors. The versatile Ava Studded Convertible Leather Pouch is our choice, featuring a detachable strap that can turn this clutch into a crossbody in moments. The silver stud detailing adds a bit of sparkle, perfect for the festive season. If you want a smaller gift, the Jet Set Travel Carryall Logo Leather Card Case in Metallic Silver has space for eight cards, notes and a coin compartment but remains small enough to fit into the tiniest of bags.

    If you are on more of a budget, the Michael Kors Pom Pom Key Charms are the way to go. Presented in sleek Michael Kors branded gift boxes, they make a glamorous addition to handbags or keys. 

    Country Chic

    If you know a gal who loves nothing more than being in the great outdoors, a pair of Hunter boots are essential. Great for leisurely country walks, they come in a wide variety of styles and colours. The Original Tall boot would be our choice for light use or short strolls, while the heavier duty Balmoral Lady Neoprene would be best for tougher terrains and longer trekks. Do they already own a pair of Hunter Boots? Try a matching pair of toasty Boot Socks as a stocking filler. 

    Leather gloves are a style classic. More elegant than their knitted counterparts, they still keep hands snug and toasty. Longchamp Roseau Croc Leather Gloves are available in a range of sizes to provide the perfect fit. Soft, buttery leather adds a luxurious feel to these gloves whilst allowing ease of movement. For an edgier look, try the Barbour Ladies Quilted Gauntlet Glove in Burgundy/Merlot which are stitched in the classic quilted design.  


    For the women who love nothing more than snuggling up on the sofa in a cosy onesie bingeing on their fave box sets, a candle makes an ideal gift. Max Benjamin Candles come in beautiful packaging and a variety of fabulous scents, from the traditional Persian Rose to refreshing Blue Azure. Our personal favourite is the Assam & Lemon Tea fragrance; uplifting, light and fresh it comes in a gorgeous duck egg blue tin. All the candles in this range burn evenly and last for a minimum of 35 hours. Think how many box sets she could get through in that time!

    Not into candles? A room spray is a great alternative to fragrance rooms. L'occitane Aromachologie Relaxing Pillow Mist is not just for bedtimes. Containing a blend of Lavender, Bergamot, Sweet Orange and Geranium essential oils, it can be used anywhere in the house to create a calming atmosphere. The Aromachologie Relaxing Bath Salts make the perfect companion to the mist, simply sprinkle into a hot bath for an unwinding treat. 

    Occasionally the homebody will have to venture from the sofa which is when a pair of slippers will be required; nobody wants cold feet after been curled up toasty warm. The Barbour Ashley Slipper Boots are warm, stylish and durable. Fleece lined with with a soft but supportive suede upper, these slippers have a sturdy sole so you can nip outside in them if required. 

    Cute and Quirky 

    These snuggly Barbour Carsten Earmuffs are a stylish choice for keeping ears warm in the most bitter weather without spoiling your hairstyle. Featuring an adjustable headband, they come in either Winter White or Natural. 

    If you think your recipient would prefer a traditional woolly hat, Barbour have a fab selection of warm and cosy beanies. The Fur Pom Pom Cable Knit Beanie Hat in Snow suits anyone and as it comes in one size only, there is no worry that it won't fit! Want a matching hat and scarf set? Try the Barbour Knitted Hat and Snood Set which combines a cute pom pom topped hat with a coordinating snood. Made from super soft yarn, this set will definitely keep you toasty during the colder months while the snood sits perfectly, being neither too long or short.

    A classic Barbour Lambswool Scarf is another option, available in a vast array of colours and tartans so there is bound to be something to suit your requirements. The Ladies Country Tattersall Scarin Arctic White is a contemporary take on the ever popular Tattersall check, or if you prefer a classic tartan the Shilhope Check Scarf in Antique Royal Stewart is a more feminine version, coming in a delicate salmon pink.
