It’s inevitable in the busy modern world that gifts will sometimes be left until the last minute. Despite this, it’s still not impossible to provide luxury presents that are both personal and meaningful. Take a look at some of our favourite luxury last minute gift ideas for him to provide some shopping inspiration.
For the more adventurous chap, taking to the choppy waters of Surrey’s Quayside provides an excellent introduction to waterskiing. All equipment is provided, along with expert tuition, as he takes part in both a group cable tow session and private boat tow session. This place has pedigree: Great Britain’s waterskiing captain, a gold medalist, is a resident coach here.
A classic British gift, the six-course tasting menu takes guests on a delightful journey throughout the UK – minus the train delays. The chefs at 1901 Restaurant have brought molecular gastronomy to classic British cuisine, while the setting, in a Grade II listed frormer ballroom, isn’t half bad either.
3. Clay Pigeon Shooting
Give the gift of the great outdoors with a spot of clay pigeon shooting. Bisley Shooting Ground is a world-renowned shooting destination, set across 3000 acres of stunning Surrey heath and woodland. Aside from enjoying the scenery, he’ll enjoy one hour of private tuition with 100 cartridges and clays, safety equipment and gun hire.
2. Whisky Tasting
For the gentleman who enjoys a tipple or two of the finest Scotch, this gift goes beyond compare. Bar manager Cesar is the youngest ever UK Keeper of the Quaich – an élite honour in whisky circles. He will introduce guests to three carefully selected Scotch whiskies that are paired expertly with British and French cheeses. Specialities include Talisker 18 years with Livarot and special release Kilchoman with a Scottish Blue.
1. Bespoke, Handmade Cufflinks
Alongside a top-end watch and tie, cufflinks form the cornerstone of every man’s pride of appearance.

Either 18ct gold or palladium plated, the cufflinks will be handcrafted to his exact specifications after a consultation with a Halcyon Days specialist.
