The time is most certainly now to find the perfect, considered gifts for those on your Christmas list. If just reading that sentence gives you Christmas shopping panic, don’t let it – instead let us refer you to the Bally Gift Guide, which curates some of the best pieces in the collection for Christmas gifting.
Accessories can often be an easier thing to choose than clothing, even for friends and family whose style you know well, and Bally has so many elegant options. When it comes to shoes, we have a particular penchant for the Janelle slipper in black leather, with its rakish oversized buckle and babouche construction. Great bags are Bally’s bread and butter, and so if you’re budget stretches to it, the chic Jorah tote is likely to prompt gasps of delight on Christmas morning. It features the same buckle as the slippers and has the optional of a longer strap when you aren’t using the shorter top handle. Equally covetable is the Janelle mini bag which comes in festive red and orange colours that are sure to attract compliments. There is also a classic belt in the same collection, but be sure to consult the size guide to be confident you’ve selected the right one. If you’re buying for someone already well served by a strong shoe and bag collection, why not choose gloves? This leather pair is so polished and adorned with the brand’s logo in gold.
Gents are equally well served by Bally’s collections. If the men in your life have tatty-looking wallets, invest in a polished (not to mention long-lasting) black leather style from the collection to make 2020 a smarter affair. Any man who commutes or travels regularly will appreciate the practicality of the Harper rucksack in smooth leather, with its water resistant lining and space for a laptop. More traditional types may prefer the Grolh business bag (a modern take on the briefcase) with smart features like a padded sleeve for a 15” laptop and a detachable shoulder strap. If your budget is slightly leaner, consider the Gift Box including a wallet and a belt. Saving quite possibly the best for last however, may we refer you to the Conor Oxfords which combine traditional brogueing with a modern Vibram sole that will stand up well to constant use – perfect for the man in your life who is always on the go.
