LAST MINUTE GIFTS FOR HIM
Last minute shopping sucks, especially when it’s for someone else. Shopping for men under duress is particularly dangerous, and can even lead to the unwarranted purchase of things like power tools. To avoid such a misstep, here is a list for the holidays, dedicated to the gents in your life.
Men have been giving women lingerie forever and I for one love to give it to them. It’s a double present: a little something all parties can enjoy. So say happy holidays and let yourself be unwrapped for a change. Agent Provocateur is classic and the Joseline set is crazy comfortable; it’s a great suspender set for someone who has never tried one before. Calvin Klein’s holiday reds capture the spirit of the season with a bit of edge. If you’re looking for something a bit tamer, The Reformation bralette is great; the hook and eye closures up the back are really hot and who doesn’t love black lace? Lastly, I’m a major fan of the COS mesh slip dress. It’s a slim fit and will hug your curves, although the downside is it will show all of your holiday cookies as well.
Another option for shopping in a pinch are fragrances. Penhaligon’s created signature box sets with custom illustrations that are perfect for dad. Sartorial is a lovely scent inspired by the Savile Row bespoke tailors Norton & Son’s. It is elegant, with notes of violet leaf, white musk and black pepper
Volutes Eau de Parfum both sounds and smells sexy. The honeyed Egyptian tobacco combined with notes of Iris has an earthy scent. Diptyque launched the fragrance back in June and it comes in their new oval shaped bottles.
My favorite gift sets are from Anthony Logistics and June Jacobs. Both come in gray carryall cases and offer the standard range of shaving creams and lotion. The Anthony Logistics bottles are enormous, whereas the June Jacobs’ are petite, and better suited for boys who are more complexion conscious (it comes with exfoliator).
