The Maxwell Scott Gift Guide For The Gentleman Who Has Everything

To find the perfect gift for the gentleman who has everything requires a little ingenuity, a touch of individuality and the following inspiration…

THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX

Sometimes it takes something that you can’t wrap to succeed in the quest of finding the gentleman with everything the ideal present. Whisking him away for an experience he’ll never forget or on a mini break for the both of you will always be a wonderful surprise…

A Culinary Experience

 

If he’s a great cook, or needs a bit of practice, a cookery lesson can be an excellent experience to gift this Christmas. Jamie Oliver’s Cookery School in particular is a great choice. There is a course to suit any ability and palette. Whether he would love a knife skills class (so that he can embrace that inner professional) or to learn how to cook anything from unbeatable filled pasta to Vietnamese street food, this Christmas present is the gift of skills to last a lifetime.

 

A Mini-Break

A promise to escape the January and February blues means that the Christmas joy can last a little longer. For the perfect short break, a city trip can offer relaxation, culture and a new adventure. The likes of Edinburgh, New York or Paris tick each of these boxes. But the Maxwell Scott festive recommendation? A weekend in Salzburg. This historical Austrian city is punctuated by a glistening turquoise river, a castle and a Baroque cathedral. Also the birthplace of Mozart, Salzburg is breathtakingly beautiful in every way. Stay at the Hotel Goldener Hirsch, which with over 600 years in hospitality, will be a splendid place to rest your head whilst you spend the day exploring this magical city together.

A GIFT TO LAST A LIFETIME

He may have everything , but this does not mean that he owns the very best. So, an upgrade on one of his favourite accessories can be a thoughtful gift. For the business maverick or a jet-set globe-trotter something that he will use all of the time is the key…

A Briefcase To Last A Career

The gentleman who has everything will always appreciate quality. So choose something that he will be able to use and enjoy each day. The best briefcase is always in a classic style (perhaps with a more modern feature such as the buckle fastening on the Tomacelli) and in a rich leather. This means that your gift will age beautifully with him and will remain timeless. It is a gift to last decades.

The Best Luggage For His Many Adventures

If he is a constant traveller, or you have decided to gift a city mini-break, then a piece of luggage under the Christmas tree will always be happily received. The Piazzale wheeled suitcase is one of the more unusual, and importantly most practical, pieces of leather luggage. The leather will develop a beautiful patina over time, as he creates memories exploring the globe.

FESTIVE TREATS

Christmas is a time for indulging. There is certainly nothing better for him to enjoy over the yuletide weeks…

The Mixology Set

The first London Distillery to be opened in over 100 years, Sipsmith is a beacon of thoughtfully-brewed gin. This Martini Mixology set features a half bottle of their dry gin, blended with ten botanicals, as well as an embossed glass, a copper measure and a matching strainer. Certainly, it is an inspired, unique gift to surprise the man in your life with. It would be a suave, sophisticated and sleek gift to please underneath the Christmas tree.

The Christmas Hamper

There is no better place than Betty’s and their gourmet Christmas adventure in a hamper fully encapsulates this. A visit to Betty’s, a fellow Yorkshire-based company, is an enchanting experience and this way their finest specialties can be enjoyed from Christmas dinner to afternoon tea. Inside the willow basket there is everything from ale, to the renowned Betty’s Christmas fruitcake, scrumptious spiced tea to a chocolate selection. Truly, this is the way to indulge over the festive period.

THE SARTORIAL OPTION

Sometimes it takes a new twist on a traditional Christmas present for him. Socks and cufflinks may be the perennial choice, but a little bit of re-imagination will mean that these can still be transformed into the perfect gift…

A Sock Subscription

London Sock Company will deliver a wonderful subscription service for the modern gentleman this Christmas. It’s a simple formula: socks of the highest quality, delivered to your door, every month. Members are able to choose their favourite styles or one of the stylists can choose their seasonal favourites for a little surprise. This is the way to reinvigorate that classic present of socks for the gentleman who needs a unique gift.

A Pair Of Antique Cufflinks

Sometimes it takes a little time to find the ideal gift for the gentleman with everything. The search for a pair of antique cufflinks can be just so, but this is a present which will be equally treasured. Choose a pair that are classic so that they can be worn often and will not show their age. Then, the memories that each antique cufflink holds can be added to by the new owner. The finishing touch to any outfit, a pair of antique cufflinks will add an individual flourish.

A GIFT WITH INDIVIDUALITY

What better to gift the gentleman in need of nothing than something truly personal. As they always say, it is the thought that counts…

A Personalised Piece

 

Sometimes, for the gentleman who has everything, a small gift that has been personalised can make the biggest impact. The Nepi key ring, for example, will be a consistent reminder of your love for its recipient. A sleek addition to any set of keys that will be enjoyed all year round, it is this kind of small gift that offers continual moments of joy.

A Signature Scent

An aftershave that fully encapsulates its recipient is the most memorable of presents. Floris provides this bespoke service in the most magical of ways. In an engraved bottle, a fragrance can be customised in a two hour appointment. This time allows him to find the perfect fragrance bases. A perfumers well-versed in finding an impeccably individual scent, with Floris’ private perfume ledgers dating back to the founder Juan Famenias Floris nearly three hundred years ago, this service is one-of-a-kind.
