Gift Edit - Mens

Christmas may only be 2 days away, but there is still time to get some last minute gifts for the boys in your life (or yourself). Personal style can be revealed through the smallest of pieces, so any of these would be a great addition to an outfit.

Menswear favourite Paul Smith have delivered again with this lightweight scarf (£85) with various shades of blue. It's been made using 12% silk and the subtle yellow stripe at each end does well to break the blue hues up.

This leather from Uniform Wares is £220 and comes with a leather strap. The black strap is very versatile in terms of outfit matching and I like the minimalism of the watch face - plus it reminds me of the Countdown clock.

I love these socks from Anonymous, and at £20 they are affordable luxury. With 94% cotton in the make-up, these socks will be the ultimate in comfort. The main base of dark green has been mixed up creatively with various other dark hues, making these pair a little bit special.

Jean Shop know what they're doing with denim so they can be relied upon to design their accessories with that in mind. This brown leather belt (£125) will look great on a pair of dark blue denim jeans and add a subtle hint of style whilst stopping you revealing too much of yourself.

This light grey striped t-shirt from A.P.C (£70) exudes the Parsian inspirations of the French brand, The jersey fabric and light colouring make it perfect for creating a very casual look, whilst still keeping you rather chic.

Burton have designed this green mix scarf (£16), perfect for styling up a smart winter coat. The wool-blend texture will keep your look casual, with the speckled green hues in keeping with the shades of autumn and winter.

Timex have come through with this super chic watch (£50). The blue and cream striped strap is different to your usual leather and has quite a nautical feel about it. The canvas material ensures comfort and you won't have to break it in so to speak.

I love these fun socks from Topman. They have little sausage dogs made to look like hot dogs on and the bright yellow colour adds to its fun feeling. Christmas is all about novelty and at only £3, these are a great stocking filler.

New Look are regularly a go-to place for accessories and this belt is a great find at only £7.99. The brown leather has a buckle that comes with a bottle opener designed in to it - perfect for all those Christmas tipples.

This t-shirt from Indigo and Maine, stocked at Urban Outfitters, is great. The faded blue makes it stand out from others on the market and the speckles make it look like stars in a cosmic night's sky. At £25, it's also very affordable and would be great with blue or black denim to complete your casual look.
