Our beautiful Fil d’Ecosse cotton socks make the perfect Christmas gift for the men in your life. Available in a range of gift boxes to suit every style – from muted tones to our classic collection – you’ll find something to suit every man on your list!
Whether you’re looking for stocking fillers or the perfect gift to put under the tree, we’ve got you covered. Our luxury men’s socks offer style and sophistication with a colourful flair. Made from finest quality Fil d’Ecosse cotton and just launched in a fabulous new range of colours - there’s a shade to suit every style. Knitted using the finest mercerised cotton, our socks don’t just look good – they’re breathable, lightweight and durable.
Coloured Cotton Shoe Laces
Our waxed cotton Wilson laces are available in twelve bright and colourful shades and add an instant element of fun and personality to any outfit. They can be dressed up with smarter shoes or added to more casual footwear - the options are endless. You'll also find they can be matched or complimented with a pair of coloured cotton socks from our collection.
Our coloured cotton shoe laces are suitable for shoes with between 6 and 12 eyelets, allowing them to be used with a wide variety of lace up shoes and trainers, as well as with a short boot.
We find them to be such a welcome gift - and something that they wouldn't necessarily think to buy for themselves. You could even gift a selection of colours so they can play around with different options for different outfits and style of shoe.
Our leather keyrings make a lovely gift - sometimes it's the most simple things which make the best presents. A luxury version of something they use each and every day. Our keyrings are made from sturdy vegetable tanned leather, which will soften over time. You can choose between chocolate brown, tan or navy leather and each features a contrasting leather loop - for that Banvard & James signature style.

Leather Luggage Tag
For the man who loves to travel, why not choose a Banvard & James leather luggage tag? It's always so important when travelling to make sure your bags are easily identifiable and this will help him to do that in style! Handmade from the finest Italian vegetable tanned leather and lined in the softest suede, our luggage tags also feature contrasting stitching for that luxe look we're known for.
Our Blakeney luggage tag is available in two colours, navy and tan, and is the perfect size for a suitcase or a carry on bag. We're certain that any frequent flyer will thank you for this!
Sock gift boxes
We don't need to repeat the virtues of our beautiful ribbed cotton socks - as you've already read all about them above - but what we can tell you is that a man can never have too many pairs of socks and for this Christmas, we’ve created a range of beautiful gift boxes, offering four or nine pairs of socks in complementary colours. They make a really thoughtful and practical gift.
Gifts under £100
In our opinion, there's nothing better than starting the year with a fresh notepad. The beauty of our leather Rapley journal is that is is refillable so they can keep it forever. The super stylish journal cover is handmade from Italian leather using traditional tanning methods and again, is available in navy, tan or chocolate brown - with our signature contrasting stitching. It makes a really special and lasting gift and will be a stylish and smart addition to any desk.
Here at Banvard and James, we know the importance of a good quality umbrella. Especially at this time of year, but really all year round, the UK is known for its regular downpours and there's nothing worse than being caught out without an umbrella. Ensure your loved ones are never in this position by gifting one of our high quality umbrellas. Whether you go for the Holton - wooden handled, our 'ultimate' umbrella, the Walker - our original classic designs, or the Roscoe - ever useful and pocket sized telescopic umbrella. They all come with a full performance guarantee and their own dust jacket.
Every man needs a collection of chic belts and our suede Huxley belt will really enhance their collection. Available in an array of gorgeous shades, you'll find one to suit every style.
Alternatively, we can recommend our woven leather belts - available in solid colour or two tone - which make a beautiful gift and come presented in our brushed cotton dust bags.
Leather Tablet organiser
For the man who has everything, look no further than our unique leather tablet case. Featuring a space for their tablet, a refillable notepad and space for a pen and cards, what more could they need to keep then organised on the go. This makes a really special, one of a kind gift which we know they'll be using for years to come.
Nothing says Christmas quite like cashmere and our new collection of luxurious cashmere scarves will really fit the bill. They're the perfect length to tuck inside an overcoat without being bulky and offer softest and warmth in a beautiful selection of colours. We could happily get one of these for everyone on our list and we know they'd all be very happy!
The Keating Holdall is the ultimate in luxury and style. It is made from the finest chocolate brown Italian leather with burnt orange detailing and is lined in the softest suede. Large enough to fit everything you need for a weekend away, we also think it makes a super stylish gym bag. This is the ultimate Christmas gift!
We hope that we've given you some great inspiration for your Christmas shopping. If you need any help with selecting the perfect gift, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
