Men – we have you covered for Christmas!

Hmmm, you’ve reached an older feature - let’s get you up to date! Read our latest Christmas features here.

Menswear 3Fotor_Collage It’s a terrible admission to make with a week and a bit until Christmas, but I haven’t done bought any presents yet. Not one.

I’ve ordered my turkey, have half-considered my brussel sprouts (I’m doing lardons, thanks for asking), I’ve asked my kids to make lists for Father Christmas so I can nick the ideas (but then lose the pieces of paper again), and that’s as far as it’s got.

So compiling this men’s guide has actually been very useful! I haven’t worked out how to put numbers on my lovely collages yet – tips please from any teckie whizzes out there – so until that glorious day, the labeling starts in the middle image, and then goes clockwise from top left.

Middle image:

1. Handmade leather and pigsuede iPad cover, Miller & Jeeves, £120. Muddy Stilettos Boutique

From top left:

2. Stylish collar stays from Denison Boston, £29.95, at Gallant, Thame.

3. Private Eye Manual 2013. Essential for every downstairs loo, from your local bookshop.

4. Essential ‘man’ wear. Nordic print onesie, £139. John Lewis

5. Series of 3 handkerchiefs, Thornback & Peel, £15.99. Almost too good to use! From, Thame.

6. Kitsch classic Licence to Grill oven gloves, £24.95, Muddy Stilettos Boutique

8. Tom Ford beauty products for men. Because frankly they need cover-up too.  Selfridges
