I hate buying Christmas gifts for guys. From brothers to boyfriends, guys are pretty tricky when it comes to the festive season. Never fear The Bearded Irishman is here. I've been busy putting together a series of Gift Guides for Guys, which will be published throughout December. So if you don't know what to get your beau or bro for Crimbo, stay tuned to the blog. Today, I'm kicking things off with my Christmas Gift Guide for The Accessories Man in your life.
Leather Laptop Bag | Mishnoc | 180
I love this leather laptop bag and would be well impressed if I unwrapped this on Christmas morning. If the man in your life uses a laptop, which most of us do these days, he'll love this ag made of natural wax leather. Available from Mishnoc for Eur180.
Old Reliable Socks | Ted Baker | 33
If you're a man of any age, you will, without a shadow of a doubt, be gifted with socks this Christmas! But c'mon, you'll use them, you always run out—if you're anything like me. This pack from Ted Baker make a handy little stocking filler for Eur33.
Grooming Pouch | Osprey London | 39
I have been meaning to buy one of these for months. An essential for the traveling man in your world, The Hunter, crafted canvas trimmed in chocolate saddle leather, it's online at Osprey London.
Blushield Glasses | Baxter Blue | 59
If you're a fan of the blog, you'll know I was gifted a pair of these a while back. I cannot tell you how much I cannot live without them now. I have less headcahes and I'm sleeping like a log. Pick up these stylish and functional BluShield Glasses from Baxter Blue at Lifestyle Safety, for 59 dollas!
Baker Boy Cap | River Island | 20
Next on the list, another accessory which I love—this grey, herringbone, baker boy hat from River Island! Pick it up in-store or online for 20 bucks!
iPhone Cover | Frescobol Carioca | 50
For the iPhone snob in your life. Yes, we all know one! This phone case from Frescobal Carioca is Italian made, created from natural wood with dyed blue pattern.
Tan leather holdall | River Island | 60
Another accessory; another bag! Quite similar to the Mishnoc bag above and a little more affordable, this piece from River Island makes a great weekend bag. Grab it for 60 Euros
Watch | Hugo Boss | 77.99
Some say you shouldn't put time on your relationship but I say, f**k it, give me a watch for Christmas. This water resistant one is gorgeous; black strap, 3-hand quartz with date movement, blue dial and stainless steel case.
