The Discerning Gent’s Christmas Gift Guide

It comes around quicker and quicker each year and now the time is upon us once again. Yes it’s Christmas and yes, the discerning gent will once again will need to think long and hard about the kind of gift he wants to give the lady in his life. If you’ve paid attention to the carefully planted hints she’s been dropping all year long, the next few weeks will be easy. For those of you that haven’t, Elysium Magazine is here to guide you through gift selection with items intended to inspire.


Let’s not forget too, that the discerning gent has worked every so hard through the year as well. Such effort is hard to ignore so feast your eyes on those gifting ideas angled to tempt you into a self indulgent purchase or two.


What She Wants

Minimalist Literature Artwork

There are fewer literary works closer to the female heart that Gone With The Wind. Such a seminal classic is held in the highest regard, alongside the romanticism and alpha male persona the quote represents, you simply can’t go wrong. You’ve probably heard her scream this quote at you a few times already too, right? Combine this with the minimalist style and you have the makings of a statement piece in the walls of your home – with the right frame (sold separately). – £8


Victoria’s Not-So Secret

Lingerie brand Victoria’s Secret is taking over the world one supermodel at a time. The glamour, sexiness, cheeky fun and classy demeanour all combine into an image women want to be in and men want to get in. With so much to choose from, picking out a single item is dangerous. Perhaps let Elysium Magazine break the ice with the new Embellished Tulle Gown – classic and sexy, comfortable yet oozing with desire. It could be the start of a dangerous habit for the both of you.

Victoria’s Secret – £63


A Room With A View

Feature wallpaper is a really difficult thing to get right yet the team at Cocktail Designers seems to have worked out the magic formula. This scenic wallpaper (Sun 736) is a collage of hundreds of different pantone colours all referenced with the unique colour palette codes to make up this stunning scene in your room of choice. Staring at this 3.7m x 3m, limited to 100 numbered pieces, feature will never get boring. – £336 (1-2 week delivery)


What You Want

Totes Amaze

For the discerning gent around town, the latest in man bags from Ermenegildo Zegna are uber stylish. This black grained leather tote is perfect for everyday use as it blends style with practical design. Hard wearing  and scratch-resistant, it’ll take whatever the daily commute throws at it and will only get better as the leather ages over the years.

Ermenegildo Zegna – £915


One For The Timepiece Collection

For the discerning gent it’s never a bad thing to have too many watches. Women may have their shoes and bags, but for men it’s definitely watches. The Tudor Heritage Chrono Blue is just one that Elysium Magazine knows will look good in your collection and even better on your wrist. The vivid blue is mesmeric and the nylon strap adds to the playful appearance for a timepiece that works hard professionally and at play.

Tudor – from £2,800


Electrifying Sports

There was a time when electric cars were laughed at, then we all got environmentally conscious and they started making models that took our breath away. The BMW i8 is one such model, with looks belonging in a Transformers movie and sports car performance that made everyone stand up to attention. Drool over its looks, purr over the engine (up to 155 MPH) then get inside and take it for a spin at your leisure…should your Christmas present list extend to such frivolous self gifting. Enjoy!

BMW – £99,845
