  1. The old man with the white beard is going to be out of a job! Who needs him when you’ve got the A Luxury Travel Blog gift guide?

  2. My man loves a good blazer and sadly the one he’s got now is looking old and tired. The Gramercy blazer from Bluffworks could be a perfect replacement.

  3. Usually I start out clueless about what I’m going to get my husband, then read these posts and suddenly I’ve got ideas. I could kick myself – it’s not that difficult really.

  4. How would Gregory Peck feel about the 1962 sun shades? Is that the moment of his life and career that he would want frozen in time? They certainly look stylish and capture the feel of a lost era.

    1. I really don’t know too much about him to be honest, but I understand he used his influence to contribute positively to society, contributing to a number of humanitarian and social causes. I would imagine this is more the legacy for which he would want to be remembered than necessarily the style of sunglasses that he might have worn… but what do I know? :-)

  5. Now that gift guides are appearing on this blog I feel that Christmas is coming. I can almost hear the sleigh bells already ….

  6. You’ve gotta love that Saddleback’s slogan, “They’ll fight over it when you are dead.” Straight outta the Wild West.

    1. I suppose it is testament to the goods and their durability that they can outlast a generation, and maybe even multiple multiple generations. Some things just get better with time and I think this can be true for leather quite often.

  7. I’m hoping that you’re going to follow up with a selection of gifts for us women that is equally indulgent?

  8. I thought these guides were supposed to help us?!?

    I’ve now got a shortlist of 6!!!

    The only good news is that as his birthday’s early Feb I’ve solved that problem as well. Once I get down to a shortlist of 2!!

    1. Ha ha… I know what you mean, Maggie! But at least you have some ideas, even if it’s maybe a few more than you wanted!!! And it’s better than having none at all…

  9. We played a lot of backgammon on holiday. My husband would love to have his own set, it would bring back some good memories.

  10. We were amazed when our neighbours showed us some photos taken by their drone on their Antigua holiday. The shots were amazing and gave them so much better understanding of where they were on a very rugged and wooded coastline. I could see that my partner is desperate to get his own drone. I don’t know much about drones but I guess that the Mavic 3 Pro would more than do the job.

    1. Hi Caroline – I have a Mavic Pro (an earlier model) and it is a fantastic piece of kit. You won’t go too far wrong with that one – quality at an affordable price, from a reputable manufacturer within the market.

  11. When I was growing up I can remember my mother muttering about people who were “hard to buy for” and of course I didn’t get what she was saying.

    Then I got married to a man who is impossible to buy for. You can imagine how pleased zI am to see these suggestions. I’ve got one that even he will be pleased with.

    1. Hi Alice – I’m glad our list was of help. Buying for people – I think particularly older people who have most items already – is often not that easy. It’s great to hear when we come up with some ideas that genuinely help people out.

  12. It’s probably more of a present to myself than my husband but that USA Vintage relief map would look great in our study.

  13. Since he’s been promoted my husband is spending more time on the road. Plenty of ideas here to help look smarter when he’s meeting clients.

    1. That’s good to hear, Cindy. Whilst there are many items in the list that can be used at home, we do try to come with ideas that will appeal to people who travel frequently. Glad you were able to find something from the suggestions – have a great Christmas!

  14. Technology is racing along at such a rate. I never knew that something like the NoNetz was a thing. The skin cooling polo is a great invention – in the right seasons.

    1. Indeed, Sue – I don’t have this actual shirt, but I’ve had similar products in the past, and been very pleased with them. It’s amazing what can be done nowadays.

  15. Last weekend the queues for parking at the mall were horrendous. I won’t be taking them on again. Most of my shopping’s going to be done online from now. Some nice and helpful suggestions here.

    1. I’ve been almost exclusively online for a number of years now. I find it so much easier, and I hope our guides have helped many of you with your gift hunting this year.

  16. Those stylish black Henry shoes would really look the part for formal occasions. As we’ve got two daughters I can see my husband wearing those at their weddings when he’ll have to look at his sartorial best.

    The 12 watch case could have been a possibility as he already has 5 watches. I’m reluctant to see him expanding his collection. It’s a very expensive hobby.

  17. After retiring and moving out of the city to the country we’ve discovered 2 things.

    Firstly it’s a lot more hilly round here than we thought and secondly we’re nowhere near as fit as we were.

    Which is really frustrating as we’re missing out on exploring some glorious countryside. His and her E bikes for Christmas could solve our problems.

    1. What really impresses me is the distances you can cover on a single charge nowadays. I haven’t yet made the jump to an e-bike myself yet but, because we live in quite a hilly area, it’s certainly tempting.

  18. Phones do get battered over their lifetime and a stylish pouch is a real winner of an idea. If my girlfriend’s reading this! It would make sense to keep my personal phone in the pouch during the working day and then swap for my business phone in the evening. It might help to bring some work/ life balance.

    1. I’m due a new phone myself because it’s suffered a few minor incidents. The screen is cracked near the forward-facing camera which is particularly annoying, especially for my online banking account that requires me to show my face when I do a transaction. I’ve looked into getting a replacement screen but the cost of a new phone isn’t all that much of a step up from the screen replacement cost…

  19. I’m probably being very naive but can anyone give me any more info on LIFT4.
    I sort of sense that my partner might like it but is there anywhere he could give it a try???

    1. I would contact them directly and ask. They’re sure to have supplied some watersports centres with them, so your partner can try one out for a few hours. I know of a similar product in the UK which you can test at a watersports centre in Wales, so I’m sure the same will be possible in the US…
