What our stylists are gifting this Christmas

The tree is up, the fire is crackling, and Mariah Carey is blasting, which can only mean one thing: your love-hate relationship with gifting is about to kick in. If you, unlike us, have already wrapped all your presents whilst sipping eggnog and half-watching “Elf”, we salute you. For those less organised, let our stylists’ top picks for Christmas help you up your gift-buying game this year.

Photographed: A.P.C. Kerlouan Work Jacket (£269)

APC Kerlouan Work Jacket

“I'm a sucker for work jackets, because they're so useful as layers in winter and as light jackets in warmer months,” says stylist Artemis Crowley. “I love this APC one for how simple it is. Perfect.”

Oliver Spencer Talbot Rollneck

“You can’t go wrong with a cosy knit as a Christmas gift, and I bloody love ’em. They’re an investment piece any time of year, but since I’m going to be hibernating for at least a month after Christmas, this is going to make layering up (and staying in) even more appealing,” says stylist Alice Watt.

Photographed: Howlin ' Straight Ahead Scarf (£49)

Howlin! Rainbow Scarf

“I love this scarf from Howlin! (and would happily also receive any of their amazing knits for Christmas if Santa is listening). Giving a scarf as a gift avoids any awkward sizing issues, and a rainbow scarf to get through the January blues is surely a good idea,” says stylist Rebecca Sammon.

Photographed: Hudson Mckenzie Black Boot (£89.50)

Hudson McKenzie Boots 

“Deep winter is the best time to invest in boots that you can wear in throughout the year. This pair from Hudson are both lightweight and durable, and will look even better with age. Buy now to get them in perfect shape for winter 2020,” says stylist Alexander McCalla.

Photographed: Norse Projects Ribbed Wool Beanie (£55)

Norse Projects Beanie 

“This Norse Projects beanie is not just practical, it’s also something that I know will be worn and loved for time. I love the fit of this beanie, and with a simple tab logo it can be gifted to almost anyone without being too polarising. Plus, I lost mine a few years back so it means I can borrow this from whomever I gift it to…” says stylist Millie Rich.

Polo Ralph Lauren Vintage Sherpa Sweatshirt

“Let’s face it – it’s bloody cold, and it’s likely to stay this way for a while, so this zip-up fleece feels like the perfect remedy. You can’t go wrong with a Ralph Lauren vintage pieces like this sherpa fleece to get through winter.” says stylist Brooke Phillips.

Photographed: Albam Popover Pocket Fleece (£105)

Albam Fleece

“I’m not a fleece guy really, but this minimal cream and black style from Albam makes me feel like a could be – and that’s what’s great about it,” says stylist Toby Standing. “It may surprise someone on your gift list too.”

Margaret Howell Scarf

“Margaret Howell can be trusted to deliver really basic pieces that have something special about them. In this case, I love the super soft lambswool scarf with a punchy but subtle burnt orange highlight. It’s a great option for dads and brothers alike,” says stylist Isabelle Harvey.

Colorful Standard Sweatpants

“It’s surprisingly hard to get a sweatpant that has the look and feel of a classic pair from the 1970s/80s and Colorful Standard really deliver with these. They are super soft, not too slim, and made in Portugal from organic cotton – what’s not to love?” says stylist Luke McDonald.

Photographed: Les Basics Le Pouch Popover Hoody (£125)

Les Basics Hoodie

“Les Basics is a cult brand that takes classic items of sportswear and subtly reimagines them. I love the pull toggles, snaps, and mix of textures and shades that sets this apart from your standard hoodie. This is a great gift for a guy who pays attention to detail,” says stylist Freddie Kemp.
