Thursday 30th November, 2017 | Posted by Marchbrae
That time of year is fast approaching and the window for gift buying is gradually closing. Here we share a selection of some of our favourite Christmas gift ideas with presents for both men and women. Whether you are looking for a grand gesture or a little stocking-filler, we have covered a range of gifts for you to choose from.
Based on Barbour's own tartan, this scarf boasts a bold blue colourway that adds a splash to any outfit. Woven from 100% wool, it is warm and comfortable to wear, perfect for cooler days. It's the ideal gift and looks great too.
Warm and easy to wear, our range of Alan Paine Combrook wraps are worth a browse when gift-buying this year. The classic country tweed designs are crafted from 100% pure wool and there are a few colours to choose from. The Combrook Wrap also features a complementary gilt leaf pin which is a nice little touch that won't go unnoticed.
A subtle yet thoughtful gift to give, a well-crafted purse is something any lady can appreciate. The Fairford has proven time and again to be a purse that everyone loves and it returns this season with an updated design and sophisticated navy check wool outer. With space for cash and cards, it not only looks great but it evidently practical too. If you're not sure what gift to buy and are looking for a safe bet, we recommend going with this one.
Barbour wax jackets are a favourite around this time of year and so we decided to showcase one of the highlights from this season's range. This long parka-style jacket really is made to keep the wearer warm and dry. Boasting a baffle quilted lining and 100% wax cotton outer, the Fortrose has a minimalist design that looks great and is highly practical too. Finished with a faux fur trimmed hood, this jacket is sure to be a hit.
Super soft and incredibly warm, the popperpom hat is a great gift especially for the winter. The interchangeable pom poms can be purchased separately and there are three colours of hat available. We are confident that this is a great gift for someone, the only downside is once they have one colour they'll want them all.
A warm mid-layer is always a welcome gift when the weather is cold, so here we've chosen the Crawford Merino Cardigan from Peregrine. Made from 100% merino wool with a diamond knit pattern, the Crawford features a thick shawl collar that helps keep in the heat. A thoughtful gift for someone in your family, this traditional piece offers enough of a twist to keep it fresh in terms of the look.
With an ever-increasing number of products and pieces to carry, a spacious cosmetics bag is a must have item. Sporting Barbour's signature diamond quilting, this one stands out from the crowd and makes for a great Christmas gift. Here is something you can be absolutely certain will be appreciated and, it doesn't cost the earth.
The perfect stocking filler, this faux fur pom pom from Jayley is a great little accessory. It can be used as a keyring or can be attached to a bag, customising whatever item it is used on. These pom pom are super soft and fluffy and come in a range of 9 excellent colours.
What is there to say about these tartan hankies from Sax Design? Available in a range of tartans, these 100% cotton luxury hankies come boxed as a set making them an ideal gift. Perfect for someone who likes things a little more refined.
Throughout history, the travel bag has been a status symbol that few other items can really match. Those who were afforded the luxury of travel, made sure that their luggage matched their status. Today, travel has become more commonplace but that doesn't mean that the travel bag is something we can forget about. Ideally we want something robust, that can stand up to the rigours of being handled and moved from place to place. The Essential Tweed Travel Bag from Alan Paine is just that. Made from hardwearing wool tweed and finished with leather and antique brass fittings, this bag is an investment that will pay dividends for years to come. What's more, it really looks the part, perfect for fans of the countryside.
A great smaller gift or add on, the Peregrine Highbury beanie is crafted from 100% merino wool. Available in two great colours, this hat is warm and soft making it perfect when the temperature is low.
Also available in Navy.
For something a little more refined, how about this Joules Langworth Tweed Blazer? An excellent addition to any man's wardrobe, we recommend it as a great gift idea this Christmas. Crafted from a 100% wool outer and sporting a tailored fit, the Langworth is the perfect present for someone special.
Socks are one of the most ubiquitous Christmas gifts and there has got to be a reason why. Every man will always need a new pair and socks are something men are reluctant to buy for themselves. We especially love this set from Joules that are made from a soft hypoallergenic bamboo mix and come in a variety of bold striped designs. A great gift for dad or an excellent stocking filler that you can be rest assured will be used.
It's definitely not a Christmas jumper but that doesn't mean it wouldn't make a great Christmas present. This warm cotton and wool blend sweater has a textured feel and ribbed sleeve detailing that gives it a little extra something. The otherwise subtle design makes it a safe choice for gifting this holiday season and since it is manufactured by Barbour International, you can be sure that the quality is of the highest level.
A great gift for the winter time and perfect for early nights in, the Joules Sleeper lounge trousers are made from a super soft brushed cotton. Whether for a brother, dad or partner, these lounge trousers are a nice Christmas present that will most definitely be appreciated.
As we mentioned earlier, a Barbour wax jacket is always a popular gift idea so we have chosen one that it sure to go down well. The Connel wax jacket is inspired by Barbour's history of supplying clothing to North Sea fisherman and dockers. The waxed cotton outer shields from the rain whilst the quilted lining and inner wind guard keep out the cold. This jacket is highly practical and features large bellow pockets and a high collar that look the part too.
To keep any Barbour wax jacket in its very best condition, it requires rewaxing from time to time. Use Barbour Thornproof Dressing to treat the cotton outer.
For something a little different, this Barbour notebook is an excellent gift idea. Wrapped in the brand's classic tartan design, this sophisticated notebook is trimmed with hardwearing leather for an excellent finish. Here is a present that won't look out of place in a work or home setting and is perfect for scribbling down notes or writing their latest piece.
There is a reason this is one of our best selling items and a favourite for those looking for a gift to give. Made from 100% cashmere, our very own cashmere scarves are luxuriously soft, comfortable and cosy. This Black Watch tartan is one of the more recognisable patterns and the dark tones are well suited to wear with most outfits. Perfect for ladies and gents alike, we have a range of colours, tartans and patterns to choose from but this is one of our all time favourites!
This Christmas, how about getting someone a gift for the home? We have a selection of soft furnishings and homeware to choose from featuring brands such as Voyage Maison, Joules, Bronte and Dora Designs. Here we have chosen to showcase one of our personal favourites from the range, this Highland Cow cushion from Voyage Maison. Decorated with a watercolour-look design, this linen-blend fronted cushion looks great around the home. Filled with feathers and backed with a wool-check pattern, this character is one that is sure to be loved.
Another gift to fit right in at home is this adorable Rufus fox paperweight from Dora Designs. Made from a luxury brocade fabric with silk trim, this beautifully crafted item is a great little gift to give this Christmas.
