Happy Shopping!




L & B GIFT GUIDE 2015- Gifts for Him



Men's Society Beard Oil (ASOS)- whose man doesn't have a beard?

Apple Watch 42mm Stainless Steel Case with Saddle Brown Classic Buckle (Apple)- I love this particular strap as it tones down the geeky element of the watch.

Tom Dixon Charcoal Scent diffuser (Mr Porter)- for the house proud...

Phaidon set of 10 paperback city books (Mr Porter)- for the travelling guru...

Ray-Ban Aviators (ASOS)- nothing beats a classic pair.


Nike AM 1 Leather Premium (Size?)- sick colourway and the premium design means the finish should be that little bit tighter.

Nike SB X Polar Beanie (Size?)- because his county colours beanie never matches his clothes and THIS will!

Vitamix Pro 300 (Brown Thomas)- for the gains and all that malarky...

Gentleman's Afternoon Tea (Morrison Hotel)- While you go shopping obvs...

GoPro HERO 4 (Amazon)- Ev has one of these and absolutely loves it. He brings it away on all his trips, even when he goes running...

L & B Gift Guide 2015: Gifts under €45 for Him and Her


Sometimes a lavish gift isn't feasible! Heck, I'm at that uncomfortable mid 20's age where I am supposed to be seeing more greens then red arrows in my e-banking and so splurging isn't a big factor in this years shopping! Below are gifts for him and her under €45 and in fact most of the gifts below are actually under €25! Winning! I debated about classifying them as stocking fillers...but they seem too good to be grouped with a clementine and chocolate coins and if I received one of these presents, i'd be absolutely delighted!

Happy E-shopping on this most miserable day!
