Gift Guide For Christmas: For Your Favourite Men

With this Christmas gift guide, it is not my intent to lure you into joining the omnipresent shopping frenzy that also rules this season. I would rather like to encourage you to invest only in clothes and objects that you truly fall in love with, that light up your day (or years to come) and that you look forward to cherishing and having around you. As to follow the wise words of William Morris: "Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful." I have browsed the collections of many of my favourite mindful fashion brands and the following selection of high-quality pieces and responsible craftsmanship is what I deem worthy of delight and possibly magic.


Great Companions
