As a light dusting of snow is finally settling across the country (and a bit more snow in some places), if you haven’t already pulled out those comfy jumpers and cosy scarves then you definitely need to. For the boys, this season is all about bold patterns and gorgeous textures, whether it’s in a soft jumper or a beanie hat. We’ve picked out a selection of winter warmer favourites for the chaps in your life (whether little or large) that would make ideal last minute Christmas gifts.
A soft, cosy jumper is always a brilliant gift for men, and choosing one with an eyecatching pattern or strong colour will ensure they stand out from the crowd while still being fashionable. The Penguin Raglan Mens Sweat in baby blue and grey makes for an ideal sweater to wear round the house, or on a casual day out. In a cotton and polyester mix, this jumper is warm and still machine washable. If the chap you’ve got to buy for is a little more outgoing, try a jumper with an on-trend Fair Isle style pattern, like the Goodsouls Mens Intarsia Knit Cardigan in shades of charcoal, brown and grey. The shawl collar and classic buttons add a retro touch that makes this a great gift to wear with tshirts or more formal shirts.
The little boys in your life will want to be just as fashionable as their older counterparts, so opt for a winter warmer that’s on-trend, like the Ben Sherman Boys Hooded Fairisle Cardigan with its cool toggle fastening and Fair Isle patterned band. This cardigan is also fully lined meaning its super snuggly and warm for winter. For a lighter but just as trendy option, try the Ladybird Acid Wash Cardigan. This 100% cotton cardigan can be layered over a shirt and tshirt, and has a distinctive acid wash look that works well with jeans. It’s also a great piece that’ll still look good in the summer months, too.
If you’re not certain about buying clothing for the men in your life, warming winter accessories are always well-received and make a charming gift. Choose something striking that will add a little colour to the dark days of winter, like the Ted Baker Mens Hat and Scarf Set in charcoal with a vibrant violet stripe, which will suit men with dark hair and skin colouring. Another option would be the Brooker Knitted Hat and Scarf in Navy, perfect for lighter-haired men, and with a classic grey and white stripe. Younger chaps will love the Tommy Hilfiger Boys Trapper Hat with faux fur trim details and cool, lumberjack style – plus it’s practical too! For a more colourful choice, we love the Ugg Australia Boys Hat and Scarf Set in its fun stripes of blue, yellow, green and neutral colours. A multi-coloured bobble and button detail on the scarf complete the cute, playful look for a wonderful winter warmer gift!
