As a matter of fact, here is our selection of affordable gift ideas for Christmas (knowing that any order made by the 19th of December will be delivered in time for the big event):

Many of us are still looking for the perfect Christmas gifts, that’s why your favorite blog is feeding you everyday with a selection of gift ideas to make your friends and family happy. Let us then introduce a young quality brand: Shinola, a Detroit-based company dedicated to producing American-made products, including watches, bicycles, leather goods, journals, shoe polish, and even cola.
“The world thinks of Detroit as supercool right now because there’s a sense of grittiness and toughness, but there’s also a sense of excitement and optimism here,” says Daniel Caudill, Shinola’s creative director, who has overseen the opening of both Shinola boutiques—one in Detroit and the recently opened shop in N.Y.C.’s Tribeca. As a matter of fact, Shinola launched their collection in France in collaboration with Colette Paris. Check out our selection of their best leather goods below and add that on your list to your Santa before it’s too late!

I’ve decided I wouldn’t spend my next few week-ends running across Paris to find the perfect Christmas gifts, should it be for me or for my beloved ones. Instead, I would just seat behind my desk at home in my PJ and take advantage of some online resellers’ free shipping policies! I’ve started with Mr Porter, which you shouldn’t be surprised about if you’re a regular of this blog. We dudes don’t have much choice when it comes to online shops for proper menswear. If it weren’t for Mr Porter, I’d be short a few shirts and scarves and ties and shoes in my weekly rotations! Stay tuned for daily “wishlist” items in fashion, design, books, skincare, watches and many more until we reach Christmas day!
