Surrey Gift Guide: For him
If you're looking for Christmas gift ideas for the man in your life, you've found it in our bumper gift guide for men. And it's all available online from brilliant Surrey businesses - for savvy shoppers who want to keep it local.
Moves like Jagger
Art makes a great gift, and an original Warhol print will certainly impress. This Mick Jagger vintage postcard is one of of several from Cranleigh-based Belgravia Gallery. It was produced in 1975 when the large limited edition screenprints were launched in New York. Belgravia Gallery have a wide range of art to suit all budgets.
Don’t be a mug
Made from bamboo, this re-usable travel mug will help save the planet and is the perfect stocking filler for the guy who has everything. It’s designed to keep drinks hot or cold for up to 24 hours. It comes from a small family run business based in Surrey called Big Little Bamboo which specialises in eco-friendly products.
If you want to impress your wine loving man with a great bottle of wine, the Scarzello Barolo is the one. Hailed as the king of wines, and the wine of Kings – it’s from a family run estate in the Piedmont region of Italy. And it’s been sourced by and is sold at the lovely Chipstead wine bar and merchants The Grape Variety.
What do you get the man who has everything? Gourmet goodies, of course! And the Christmas hampers from Secretts of Milford offer a wonderful range of treats – from the Jingle Bells Hamper for coffee lovers to the White Christmas Hamper filled with shortbread and chocolates. Or go for the top of the range Winter Wonderland Hamper packed with gourmet treats, gin and Champagne.
£50 – £250
What to get the tea-loving man in your life? Christmas tea, of course! The Lawn Collection is a Woking-based boutique tea company, and as well as a great range of black and green tea, plus herbal and fruit infusions they’ve just released their Winter Berry Christmas tea. With yuletide classics including cinnamon, cloves and orange peel, this caffeine-free tea looks and tastes like the best of Christmas – and the loose leaf comes in a classic Kilner jar. Perfecto.
This shaving cream is light and non-foaming, and designed to eliminate razor burn and razor rash. It’s from Warlingham company Pure Shave. And when you need a refill, get the eco refillable pouch (£33 for 450ml) – enough for three refills – and help save the planet. There’ also a Pure Shave Moisturiser (£20).
Llama day out
Guys can be tricky to buy for, which is why we love this gift experience – because who wouldn’t love trekking with llamas in the Surrey Hills. There are various options available including a llama trek and lunch or a luxury llama trek day – all setting off from the Merry Harriers pub in Hambledon near Godlaming
£168 – £199.20
