FashionBeans x Ted Baker Christmas Gift Guide 2016
Even the most menswear-minded man can be a tricky beast to buy for at Christmas. If he’s been paying any attention to us all year, he likely already has a wardrobe full of well-appointed staples, and if there’s a gap to plug, chances are he’s already got an idea of what he wants or has bought it himself.

Luckily, we’ve partnered with Ted Baker to pull together some ideas for the well-dressed guys on your list. Whether shopping for a friend, brother, or boss; take it from us, here are 15 things he'll actually want this Christmas.
DARE Striped Holdall
Life’s too short to carry a boring bag. Inject some personality into their look with the DARE holdall, which features a contrast stripe design. Ideal for the weekend traveller, the smooth yet hard wearing outer shell unzips to reveal a generously sized interior that's fitted with multiple compartments.
