BOAT Magazine – Gifts for your superyacht host

Staying on board a superyacht owned by close family or friends can be a wonderful way to spend Christmas. There’s just one catch – what do you buy the owner who has everything?

While finding the best Christmas gifts for children or scouting out the top sea-inspired gifts can be relatively easy, finding luxury gifts that adults will love can be trickier. We suggest a three-part present involving a bottle of something delicious for the superyacht bar to get the Christmas cheer flowing, a game to enjoy together and a beautiful interior decoration as a memento of your vacation.

Luxuo Singapore – Christmas 2017

20 years ago, a grinch economist named Joel Waldfogel wrote an academic paper titled “Deadweight loss of Christmas” where he posits that “Christmas gift-giving destroys between 10 percent and a third of the value of gifts”; that is to say, there is a gap between how much person spends on a Christmas gift versus how much the recipient values the gift.

“We imagine our friends opening a gift that is impressive, expensive, and sentimental.” – Derek Thompson, The Atlantic

Thankfully, the Atlantic has a more recent 2014 study which shows that we’re only terrible gift-givers because we attempt to be too considerate when choosing Christmas gifts or guessing a person’s Christmas wishlist. LUXUO is going to take that information a step further, and present a curated list of universally desirable accessories and accoutrements that any man would want. The only consideration here is how cool, how stylish and how exquisite. In other words, we’re going to take the guess work out of gift giving and just focus on pure, unadulterated awesomeness.

Here’s our inaugural holiday wishlist for men with LUXUO’s 10 best gifts for Him for Christmas 2017:

Lifestyle Asia Singapore – 5 essential grooming gadgets

In this era where men are taking their grooming routines more seriously, it’s still very common for some guys to be using a disposable razor and a pair of rusting nail clippers that have never seen the light of day as they’re stowed away in the medicinal cabinet of a bachelor pad’s bathroom.

Yet the men’s grooming industry is valued at an estimated US$17.5 billion (S$23.5b), indicating that there’s a growing breed of men for whom vanity is very much part and parcel of life. And why not since there’s such a wide variety of grooming gadgets available on the market.

You could use a different electric shaver every day of the year and not run out of options. Boutique grooming brands are churning out more manicure sets by the dozen. And let’s not go into the plethora of facial cleansers that are just sitting on the shelves of departmental stores.

So as the year comes to an end, we’ve decided to put together our own edit of the best grooming gadgets out there. Maybe you’re looking for a gift for your best friend as a subtle hint for him to clean things up, or perhaps you want to go into 2018 looking more dapper than ever. Whatever the reason, we’re here to help, so keep scrolling for Lifestyle Asia’s list of the best grooming gadgets for the contemporary gentleman

Gentleman’s Journal UK – Christmas Gift Guide

Grooming

Some of the most long-lasting gifts fall into the grooming department. One swift spritz of an aftershave every day means that any scent you unwrap will do you for much of the year. So why not opt for something from Creed, such as the Viking fragrance they launched this year – bold, peppery and with hints of Indian sandalwood. Or opt for Floris, and their classic Leather Oud Eau de Parfum.

Czech & Speake’s No.88 Shaving Set & Stand – so good we gave it away on Day 10 of our Advent Calendar – is also a great option if you’re looking for grooming hardware. Or, if you want to give the classic gift, a selection box of Acqua di Parma’s perfumed soaps will make for a classic, and luxurious present.

Golf Digest US – Holiday Gifts For Golfers

Golf Digest US, the dedicated magazine for golf lovers, included Czech & Speake in their Holiday Gifts guide. We couldn’t say it better than Brittany Romano: “Your favorite golfer will love one (or more) of these items from our annual Wish List.”

The Zebrano Shaving Set is crafted from sustainable sourced Zebrano wood and is known for its highly figured heartwood. The heartwood is straw-like in colour and distinctively marked with narrow veining or streaks of colour ranging from dark brown to almost black. These streaks give the heartwood a zebra- stripe appearance and its name.

Zebrano wood was traditionally used for boat building and original skis, as it is tough, water resistant and decorative.

The perfectly weighted razor features a Mach III blade and Silver Tip best badger hair is used to complete the brush.

Head to their website and be inspired by the practical and beautiful suggested gifts for the golfer in your life, or for yourself.

Marie Claire UK – The Manly Mani

The December issue of Marie Claire UK is out today! Grab it from the newsstands and check out their comprehensive gift guide for this Christmas. They include the newest addition to our manicure sets, the Midnight Blue English long grain leather.

The manicure instruments have been handmade especially for Czech & Speake in Solingen, Germany. All have rounded edges to conform to international restrictions on hand luggage for air travel. The long-life nail file was developed especially for Czech & Speake utilising extremely high tech and incredibly sharp synthetic crystals which act like microscopic planes in the way they trim and shape the nail edge.

The Teflon coating on all the instruments dramatically boosts their lifespan by reducing oxidisation and acts as a dirt repellent, making them supremely hygienic.
