Shopping can be difficult, even more so without the ability to easily go browse your local high street. I am here to give a hand with some perfect one-and-done gift ideas.

Aspinal of London Travel Watch Roll


A simple yet overlooked element of a watch lover’s collection. It is the perfect gift for the traveler who enjoys having 2 different timepieces on a trip.

Persol 649


Born from the trolley’s of Turin the Persol 649 is an iconic frame that has adorned the faces from Steve McQueen to Daniel Craig. With the same iconic shape in a brown tortoise-transparent acetate the new 649 gets a whole new aesthetic.

E. Marinella Napoli Silk Glasses Case


Glasses cases can be bulky and tricky to hide in a nice suit jacket, yet you do not want to scratch your expensive lenses. The thin silk case in one of E. Marinella’s beautiful patterns serves to protect those expensive lenses and spice up an outfit at the same time.

Theo & Harris “The Holly” Watch Strap


A new watch strap is a great way to change up a daily adorned timepiece and get in the holiday spirit. The Holly by the Theo & Harris Watch Shop is a great way to do so in a a beautiful gloss green lizard leather.

Liberty London Simon Carter Cufflinks


With a simple addition of jewelry, a boring outfit can be elevated to a whole new level. An often-forgotten item is cufflinks, the Simon Carter Rope Edge Cufflinks are classic enough with it’s silver rope edging, but adds some bravados with its green inlay.

Why not gift a taste of Turin to someone you care for? With a variety of delicious chocolates an assortment of Baratti & Milano is a great alternative to the conventional chocolate gifts.

Hermès Tarmac Passport Holder


Most passports are quite bulky, either with too many pockets or padded enough to sleep on as pillow on a transatlantic redeye. The Tarmac is slender, sleek, and thin, a perfect mix for the travel on the go.

Louis Vuitton City Guide


One of cheapest items from Louis Vuitton, yet one of the most useful. Louis Vuitton City Guide’s are one of my personal favourite tools for learning about a new city before embarking. With an ever growing collection they serve as a great companion for new adventures.
