DH appreciates quality. Can anyone suggest high quality versions of everyday things please?
He owns his own business, dresses casually, enjoys the outdoors, is a foodie but currently dieting, into exercise (see previous).
Other ideas welcome too! Thanks

I love Gant clothing for casual clothing, and it washes really well!

If he likes the outdoors Icebreaker base layers and Bridgedale socks.

Aqua di Parma deodorant. Plus side for you is he will smell divine!

Cashmere socks/jumpers
Recycled firehose bags and wallets (expensive but so beautiful)

Thank you for this thread (and all the others grin). I really rate Barbour for polo shirts. And while not particularly high end, since I introduced dh to sketchers he won’t wear anything else. I even found him black business-suitable ones for work. Before this it wasn’t unusual for him to spend upwards of €200 on a pair of shoes

For the foodie side, I’ve got DH a Joseph pizza cutter. Also an avocado slicer.

Thought bamboo socks.

My DP loves the shampoo/body wash from the white company called Loch. I think it’s about £13 a bottle

Penhaligons aftershave - the one called Sartorial smells gorgeous!

MooseBeTimeForSummer Fri 06-Nov-20 17:53:38

High end earphones, music speakers - Bowers & Wilkins

DH loves Heath shaving gel and after balm .more expensive than standard but lasts ages and no nasties in it.

Trumpers aftershave - Sicilian Limes is good. If you live near London you could even promise him a pampering session there - they do an old fashioned wet shave - after lock down.

Fortnum & Mason tea or coffee - zero calories and still foodie.

Joseph Joseph kitchen gadgets

Cashmere jumper - Brora are lovely

I don’t know if he likes Monty Don style but Old Town clothing is fab .
I lust after THIS BELT but DH does not wear belts .

I second really good slippers ( Celtic &Co)
I bought Grenson hand painted sneakers . They have been much admired . They don’t seem to do those any more but these are very nice .
