It’s nearly December. I’m not entirely sure how that happened but it means that Christmas present buying must begin in earnest. I’m not one of these super organised types who have everything all done and dusted in the January sales but if I see something I do like to buy it and tuck it away for the big day. I always have a problem buying presents for the men in my family. This year I have it all sorted. The perfect smart/casual outfit selection. There could only be one colour choice, as you can see.

FLINTOFF BY JACAMO CHUKKA BOOT £35

I’ve been looking out for some quality men’s boots as the main present. I wanted to buy something casual but hard wearing and these really are perfect. They are clean and stylish and very comfortable and come in two different colours in sizes 7-13.

JACAMO BLACK STRETCH TAPERED CHINO

If you’re looking for something smart casual then a chino is perfect because it has that slightly tailored look while still being comfortable. These have a tapered leg which means they look great with boots or shoes for a smarter look or with trainers if you are more casual.

VOI CHARGE CABLE KNIT JUMPER £45

If you don’t get a new woolly jumper is it really Christmas? This lovely soft jumper is perfect for cold Winter days and it doesn’t have a novelty Christmas motif on it so will definitely be a hit in my house. This jumper comes in a fine cable knit with a simple crew neckline. It is just smart enough for Christmas dinner but you don’t feel too dressed up.
