The Discerning Gent’s Christmas Gift Guide

It’s less than a week before Christmas. If you are reading this, you are either the kind of risk-everything daredevil type of discerning gent with a penchant as deadline junkie or you are the kind of discerning gent who has been working too hard all year round to even think about the festive season until the weekend prior. Whichever way the pendulum swings, it’s time to act now and save face in six days time knowing that you have bagged the right gifts for your partner or family member. It’s time to navigate the Christmas gifting minefield with the help of Elysium Magazine’s last minute gift guide.


What She Wants

Rock Rose Gin

Will she ever not like gin? Unlikely. Will she be upset with you if her bottle ever runs dry? Very likely. Avoid the stress and make sure her next bottle is ready and born of good gin-stock. The winter special from Rock Rose features hand-foraged botancials from the Scottish Highlands. Making for a truly festive flavour profile, the hero botanical in this limited edition release is spruce tips, with original Rock Rose elements scaled down to allow the delightful earthy and slightly citrusy notes from the spruce tips to shine through.

RRP £37.50 – Dunnet Bay Distillers


NARS x Man Ray: Velvet Lip Pencil Set

Aside from the eyes, the lips say it all. Ensure the lady in your life makes a statement with this set of velvet matte lip pencils from NARS.

Thought the fun of console gaming was over once you hit your 30s? Fear not friend.
