Men are notoriously difficult to by for and even more so this year, as we can’t even browse the shops in town this month. Never fear, Luxe Bible is here with some awesome pressie ideas for the special guy in your life. Here’s the Lust List: Christmas Gifts For Him.
PaMu Quiet Active Noise-Cancelling Earphones $119
Brand new from Padmate come these super cute ergonomic ear buds which even for very small ears, stay securely in place while walking, running or working out.
They come in a cool charging and carrying case with a blue circular LED light which notifies you that the earphones are in fastened safely into the charging crib.
There’s a number of things we really love about the PaMu Quiet Active Noise-Cancelling Earphones – including the cost – as they’re lots cheaper than similar models on the market. They’re IPX4 water resistant which means they’re resistant to water splashes from any direction, and they also have active noise cancelling technology (ANC) means that your favourite tunes aren’t drowned out by any external noises when you’re out and about.
The compact wireless charging kit means they’re perfect for charging on the go and give hours of listening, while they also operate via touch control – you can change this to suit by downloading the handy app.
Slick looking, in meteorite black, PaMu earphones are stylishly packaged and include three ear tip sizes for total comfort, lanyard, carry case, charging case and charging cable. They also offer free delivery on orders over $99.
Aberfeldy 18YO £95
This is a really special tipple for any true whisky lover – a classic Scottish malt with a classy French twist! John Dewar & Sons’ latest expression is the limited edition Aberfeldy 18 Years Old, which having spent its life in a combo of refill casks, has been finished and refined with 4-5 months in First-fill Pauillac wine casks in Bordeaux.
Bordeaux’s terroir plays a huge part in the appeal of Pauillac’s wines with some of the most sought after and expensive reds from this area. Rich, full and oaky in style is the typical profile, while Malt Master Stephanie MacLeod carefully monitored maturation and flavour development to produce this beauty which simply has to enjoyed neat. With ‘Aberfeldy’s wonderfully soft signature honey and creamy vanilla notes, invigorated with swathes of plush ripe fruits and lovely nutty aromas’, Stephanie describes Aberfeldy 18YO as an ‘incredibly elegant and fruitful whisky.’
The limited edition whisky can be purchased from the Dewar’s website, priced at £95 for a 70cl bottle, 43% ABV.
