FashionBeans x Ted Baker Christmas Gift Guide
Christmas, for those of us without green fur and a propensity for present theft, makes a welcome break from the drudgeries of to-do lists. So it's frustrating that you have to tick off an entire to-do list of presents for a redwood-rivalling family tree before you can tuck into your turkey.

We're down with the idea that it’s better to give than to receive. Less so with the trudge round swamped stores trying to guess the perfect present for an uncle you barely know. So we've done the legwork, rounding up our favourite gifts from Ted Baker's enviable selection. All you've got to do is wrap them.
ROCKALL Over Ear Headphones
Since Beats By Dre's ubiquity and shoddy build quality means they fulfil the requirements of neither form nor function, Ted Baker's gold-plated 'phones, with their punchy bass and leather ear cups, are a much better bet. And they'll drown out the inevitable rows over whether or not to watch the Queen's Speech.

FORU Men's Fragrance Gift Set
Smellies are a Christmas no-brainer, but to minimise the odds you'll swing and miss (a vetiver-based scent for your bergamot-loving dad - what were you thinking?) Ted Baker's FORU gift set has you covered. Packing Ted's scent quartet, something in there is guaranteed to suit even the most discerning nose.

DANYAL Matte Dial Watch
Scandinavia's finest watch brands might beg to differ, but you can go too minimalist with your wristwear. Ted Baker's sleek three-hander strips away most of the fripperies but injects some colour to the hands and day/date subdials, to ensure your timepiece doesn't blend in.

FETTERZ Herringbone Silk Tie
Christmas ties tend towards the gaudy but, come the dark days, texture beats dancing Santas. Not that you need to eschew colour entirely. Ted Baker's mustard design is muted enough not to look overly optimistic in downpours, and the herringbone silk will offer some depth to tailoring or help dress up a denim jacket.

PLANO Dressing Gown
A dressing gown is an object that every man revels in, but which no one has ever bought for themselves. Save your loved ones the embarrassment of trying to cram a hotel's in their suitcase with this shawl collar version, ideal for keeping them warm through Boxing Day.

JUSTFAB Fabric & Leather Gloves
Most men don’t think they need gloves, which is why most men have dry, cracked fingers that no one wants to touch. Be a digital saviour with Ted Baker's wool-lined hand cosies. And because their black leather is dressed up in a quilted, herringbone fabric, you avoid any Gestapo officer overtones as well. Handy.

ZIPROND Zip Around Wallet
Know someone who's still carrying a George Costanza-rivalling wallet that leaves their trousers bulging? Help streamline their silhouette with Ted Baker's zip-around leather version, which offers just enough space for cards and cash but is slimline so that they're no longer subjected to suspicious looks at airport security.

BRACCO Engraved Hip Flask
After Christmas lunch, someone's going to suggest a walk "to aid digestion". Consider this hip flask an investment in your own warmth. It comes packaged in a special Ted Baker box and engraved with the phrase 'Three sheets to the wind', sure to elicit a titter with every tipple.

EVALAST Two-In-One Jacket
To earn yourself some serious brownie points, double-down on your gift giving with Ted Baker's two-in-one jacket. On the outside, it's a patch pocketed blazer. But inside, there's a zip-up jersey jacket, to help outflank the cold and any puzzlement over precisely how to layer properly.

ADZNEK Sprayed Ombré Scarf
Scarves are the lazy man's Christmas fallback. Unless, of course, they're sprayed ombre scarves, crafted from skin-pleasing alpaca wool and in this season's most on-trend colour. Then, they're a lesson in how to dress, for that one cousin who always wears the same gravy-stained sweatshirt.

CHOWCHO Bike Repair Kit
Buying for a bike guy? The type that rides to Christmas dinner on a carbon fibre frame that cost a month's salary, and decamps to the garage to tinker with it the minute the cracker smoke’s cleared? This repair kit will help assuage your guilt for puncturing their tyres, so they can't disappear all day on a tempo ride.

FULSERV Grooming Gift Card
Christmas is a time for gluttony. But nothing deflates an appetite like watching a man deposit the majority of his Christmas dinner in the confines of his woodsman's beard. The solution? Dispatch them to Ted's Grooming Room tout de suite, for a much-needed tidy up.

CANSAS Pyjama Set
There's a time Between Christmas and New Year when real world clothes are not merely optional, but frowned upon. Help someone handle these lounging days with panache in this striped pyjama set, crafted from 100% cotton. Beats a tatty pair of joggers.

VULCAN Fly Hook Lapel Pin Badge
Anglers rarely make appearances on designer's mood boards, and we'd advise even the keenest fisherman not to pair waders with a double-breasted blazer. Instead, offer them a more subtle way to rep their hobby, with this fly hook-referencing lapel pin.

LAPEER Leather Jacket
Christmas shopping done? Well, then you deserve a treat for being so good this year. Put the mulled wine down; we were thinking something more like this buttery-soft, cafe racer-style leather jacket, which will look just as good with a white tee and jeans as it does a button-down and tie.
