Whether it’s for someone special or you’re feeling like a bit of a self-gifter, quality accessories should not be overlooked during the upcoming season of giving.
Even though these items are eminently practical, they tend to be the type of thing we always find ourselves and others lacking for whatever reason. In long run these elements of classic style will outlive any current trend and will be a constant reminder to the recipient of your good taste.
Launer London credit card case. Holds six cards – three on each side, with a large back pocket for currency. 8.5cm x 11cm £105.00
Quality shoes need to be cared for and this Saphir kit is fully equipped with all the tools you’ll need to get started. The attractive textured leather case doesn’t hurt either. $205.00 from Leffot
Box style leather wet pack. This goes by many names including a dopp kit but is essentially a tidy way to store your toiletries when you travel. This one is from Swaine Adeney Brigg and will cost you $320.00 from Sterling & Burke. I would go with the Daines & Hathaway model which is almost indistinguishable from this one (although slightly smaller at 280 mm by 155 mm by 193 mm) for $210.00. Both are made in England.
Ghurka folding leather snap tray no. 58. Not just for travelling. I like to keep one on a side table for keys, coins or whatever small items need a temporary home. 7.75″ x 4″ snapped 2″ deep $175.00.
Although socks are not generally thought of as a very good gift, if you found these Pantherella cashmere socks in your stocking you would make an exception. £27.50 (shown in Plum) from Woods of Shropshire.
A proper pair of gloves. Handmade in England with the finest quality Hairsheep cabretta leather from Pittards and lined in cashmere. £125.00 from Crombie.
