The Discerning Gent’s Christmas Gift Guide

It’s that time of the year and the discerning gent needs to navigate the gifting minefield for that special something for the special lady in his life and also as a treat to himself for another years’ hard graft looking good and making things happen. Here’s is Elysium Magazine’s definitive guide to all that is great in the world of luxury lifestyle to make sure you both enjoy a very merry Christmas this year.


Armani Dolci 40th anniversary pralines

You can never go wrong with luxury chocolates at any point in the year but this is Christmas and it’s all about excess. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Armani group earlier this year, the fashion house has crafted a limited-edition wooden box filled with a selection of 19 pralines – dark chocolate shells which contain four different flavours: raisins, dark brown sugar, apple, and honey and nuts – which can be shipped direct from Milan for the pleasure of you both.


£55 (plus £35 delivery) via Armani


Braun Series 3 3080 Shaver

To look good the discerning gent needs a range of tools in his style armoury. Electric shavers are a quick and convenient way of ensuring that 5 o’ clock shadow doesn’t creep up – or get in the way – of looking fresh-faced. The Braun 3080 works wet or dry and features a triple action cutting system. It’s quick to charge so you’re ready to go in no time. A gym-bag staple.


£69.00 via Boots



The discerning gent’s shaving and skincare regime is just as important as his gym routine. However unlike the gym session, shaving or skincare need not last 50 minutes or more. Thankfully the LUNA skincare device is the one that should be on the shopping list this festive period. Featuring the T-Sonic pulsating device that delivers more than 8,000 pulses to the skin to enhance the anti-aging process. Use with the Foreo Cleanser solution to get the skin ready pre-shave in less than one minute.


£145 via Foreo

Leica Q 

As if the discerning gent needs to be reminded, but our lives today are captured in a series of Jpegs and GIFs thanks to social media. A camera needs to match up to those special moments in life which is where the Leica fits in. Billed as the “compact camera redefined” the Leica Q comes with a full-frame sensor and a fixed 28mm focal length perfect for street, architectural and landscape photography. The lens is the fastest in its class so there’s no worry about missing a thing.


£2,900 via Leica


Chivas 12 ‘Made for Gentlemen’ steamer trunk

For the discerning gent with a flavour for the international jet-set, only the most stylish luggage will do. The ideal setup is a mix of practicality functionality – step forward the Chivas 12 Steamer Trunk by luxury suitcase company Globe-Trotter. With individual space for shoes, a drawer to hold up to eight timepieces, leather covered hangers for suits and, to top it all off, a mini bar complete with mirrored back. Look and feel good whatever the timezone.


£12,000 via Globe-Trotter

Lamborghini Huracan Spyder

Admittedly a blow-the-budget option, but what the hell. The convertible version of the Huracan is a beast of a motor. The 5.2-litre V10 engine is lifted from the fixed-head Huracan, which produces a rather alarming 602bhp.


£205,000 via Lamborghini
