Left your Christmas shopping late? We have some good ideas, some great ideas and some random ideas for those of you still in the hunt.
Philips Man Iron
The Philips Man Iron, I can’t believe this exists. However, it is fantastic – housed in a ‘manly’ black outer casing with its sleek design made using the toughest, most durable materials, Philips have produced a genius solution to ‘man-ironing’ or lack thereof, creating a “practically unbreakable ‘tool’”. There are plenty of technicalities associated with this iron, but I ask why? Does any man actually care? I did some comparison of other more conventional irons on the market and impressively the Man Iron stacks up very well if not better – this is all you need to know. It looks fantastic (for an iron) and most importantly will keep your garments crease-free.
The Philips Man Iron (GC4890) is available in Argos, Comet and Currys and will cost £60. For further information visit www.philips.co.uk.

Fin’s for Him
Established in 2008 by Alexandra Finlay, Fin’s for Him was inspired by the lack of good, classic loafers at an affordable price point. Something which I can testify to, as an avid wearer of these type of shoes. The original shoe was the George Loafer which almost has cult status around the world. Hand stitched in Portugal by a small family run business and available in some epic colour ways they really are guaranteed to disappoint no man. They are comfy, can be dressed up or worn casually and are uniquely stylish. At £95.00 they are incredibly affordable in comparison to similar offerings on the market and are guaranteed not to disappoint this Christmas or ever.
Braun Porsche Edition
Playing on Braun’s German heritage and reputation for quality, the electric shaving giants have collaborated with German sports car company Porsche. The limited edition Series 3 razor possess all their fantastic regular features such as the famed Triple Action Free Float and Clean & Renew Systems but also, the ‘Motorsport Edition’ features an all black casing with red start button. Despite it being a good razor under the bonnet (excuse the pun), it also looks fantastic and naturally, the build quality is excellent.
Available from Boots now – RRP £189.99.
