It’s that time of year when the art of present buying turns into a race against the clock for something that will make the recipient suitably chuffed and won’t cost a bomb. So here are five suitable accessories we’ve picked out that are guaranteed to impress your dad, son, partner or postman this season.
Medicom Jean-Michel Basquiat Bear
This is an ideal present as it falls into that category of being something that we’d all like to own but maybe can’t justify buying. Who doesn’t want a Basquiat be@r? Get one here.
Simon Carter x Hix Cufflinks
If your father is fully into fly-fishing then make these cufflinks his catch of the day. A collab between Simon Carter and chef Mark Hix they’re the perfect reminder of your dad’s favourite hobby and will also stop his sleeves from falling into his soup. Available from Hix restaurants or by emailing them here.
Aimé Leon Dore Ald Waffle Knit Beanie

Nobis Storm Camo Woven Scarf
The Canadians know a thing or too about staying warm so this Nobis camo scarf will keep your beloved toasty warm. It’s also ideal for getting into the spirit of all those Christmas war films they show on telly by wrapping it round your face and hiding behind the christmas tree till the gestapo (the in-laws) have gone home. Buy one here.
Palladium Pallabosse Boots
Buying slippers as presents is a bit of a cop out isn’t it? So why not buy a pair of super suave French boots that feel like slippers when you put them on? Based on the iconic Pampa these waterproof Palladium Pallabosse boots have dispersed with the rubber toecap and have a ridiculously cosy shearling lining and merino wool footbed. Buy a pair here.
