Fine finishing touches set a man’s look apart – handy, then, that this selection won’t break the bank

Little upgrades to even the smallest accessories for men can make such a big difference. From the leather upper of a watch strap to the card clash-avoiding tech in a wallet, the thermal lining of sleek gloves or the smart metalwork of a belt, premium materials and clever design elevate these everyday essentials. What’s more, we’ve made sure these impressive accessories don’t cost the earth. But there’s more to it than just snapping up well-made items without blowing the budget. While these accessories are beautiful pieces in their own right, what you’re really giving him for Christmas is the inimitable gift of feeling genuinely put together. And you can’t put a price on that.
