LAST MINUTE GIFT GUIDE: The Gentlemen’s Wishlist

“In Paid Partnernship With Gillette”

You need a last minute gift? Not a problem at all! There is always something a gentleman will enjoy, also in terms of tangible goods. Truly amazing pieces, located somewhere between minimalist design and real craftsmanship. From timeless classics, to modern novelties, which fullfil all our sophisticated desires in some way. Art, Design, Fashion… but see for yourself which items, to my mind, are the must-haves for this x-mas gifting season.

The modern gentlemen’s essential: Gillette reinvents the razor again and again. Every man knows that the only real way of shaving is the wet shave. It is something that should have a certain importance and meaning in every man’s morning routine. This winter Gillette offers design enthusiasts the chance to express themselves and their personal style in their bathroom and through their grooming routine.
Gillette convinces with a shaver, which is not only of high quality but truly beautiful in its design. It is called the “Gillette Design Edition”. A handpiece that has never felt this good paired with a minimalist, straightforward design and precise blades. A perfect gift for every man who appreciates minimalist design in his bathroom. The Gillette Design Edition is available in selected dm-stores in Germany as well as in the dm-online store. Price: 12,99€

A little art: Yours truly sounds at first like a love letter, which it is in some way.

Visitors sent over 92,000 postcards to prisoners  of conscience all around the world. In this great artwork by contemporary artist Ai Weiwei, former prisoners and their beloved ones reflect on their experience of receiving numerous postcards while imprisoned, which is just one part of this great masterpiece. Price: 16,99€

That kind of suede jacket everybody should own:
With the “Johan” trucker jacket, Officine Generale supplies the fashion nerds with another beautiful handmade piece of soft suede including a two-way zip as well!
Price: 995€

The cashmere scarf: Fringed and checked
This scarf is an allrounder and timeless classic, equipped with the archival, fringed traditional checked London pattern, yet it is somehow different to the “normal” Iconic pieces by Burberry. Price: 390€

Can you smell the scent of X-Mas?
Normally I do, but more in terms of festive spices, softwood and so on. When it comes to scented candles you better go with the Diptyque candles, if you want to avoid something tacky. In this case with the figuier scented candle. Never gone wrong! Price: 46€

Are you into graphic design? You’re not? Well, watch Christopher Niemann and sooner or later you’ll be the biggest fan of him and his graphic designs. Some may recognize Niemanns art from the well known Netflix documentary “Abstract – The Art of Design”. Here’s a brief summary on him for those who don’t: Born and raised in East-Germany Christopher Niemann soon became one of the leading graphic designers on the continent, later around the world. He turns the most normal things into something groundbreaking. Visions and abstract thoughts you’ll see and feel in his art just like this one “Woman At The Window”. Price: 600€
