It can be difficult to find meaningful luxury Christmas gifts for husbands. The obvious options pile up: a fine bottle of scotch, a new golf club, perhaps a luxurious tie. None of it really causes a sense of excitement, however. That’s where we come in: we want to offer you unique Christmas gifts for your husband that will stand out. Discover the best below.
For the sport lover
One might have thought it tough to find a gift for the cricket lover at Christmas time. After all, it’s hardly the season. Well, you needn’t worry – a batting or bowling lesson at the home of cricket, Lord’s, can be enjoyed indoors, within the confines of the state-of-the-art MCC Cricket Academy. Professional tutors even use Hawkeye, amongst other technology, to help hone in his batting or bowling skills.
For the less practical, – a private tour of the stadium itself, from the museum, to the changing rooms, provides a wonderful insight into the home of cricket.
For the whisky lover
5-Star Whisky Tasting is conducted by one of the world’s foremost Scotch whisky experts – a ‘keeper of the Quaich’, no less (that’s a prestigious whisky award, to you and I). The man who holds that honour, Cesar da Silva, will explain tasting notes and origins of all the fine whiskies and pair each of them with matching cheeses.
For the food lover
There can’t be many better destinations for a delightful meal in London than The Square. Holding two Michelin stars for well over a decade, the charming chef-patron, Phil Howard, offers delightful French flavours with a deft touch of refined British class.
Service here is hospitable and friendly, a welcome departure from traditional perceptions of stuffy fine dining. And, let’s face it, who would be disappointed by a Christmas gift of dinner at one of Britain’s best dining establishments?
For well-groomed gentleman
The world-class Gentlemen’s Tonic male grooming salon sets the standard with a traditional haircut and wet shave that will delight even the most fastidious of well-groomed chaps.
The traditional barbershop experience is enjoyed with all the frills, but a touch of modernity too. ecorated in an understated masculine style reminiscent of a smart tailors’ shop, the salon is set with a blend of old and new: wood, leather and marble are mixed with high-tech music consoles and LCD screens for personal use in each haircut station and treatment room.
For the green-fingered
There is probably no finer destination in the entire world for botany than Kew Gardens. Founded in 1759 and now a UNESCO World Heritage site, the 300 acres of land that make up the Royal Botanical Gardens is surely one of London’s most stunning. Enjoy a private guided tour of the gardens, before a trip for Michelin star dining at the nearby Glasshouse restaurant.
