Christmas gifts for James Bond fans

Last year I wrote a post in which I proposed seven ideal gift ideas for James Bond fans, and with Christmas once again approaching I’ve decided to revisit the idea. While last year’s post focused on gifts costing less than £80, this year’s ideas are not capped and centred upon lifestyle and experiences.

Breakfast at the Dorchester

Although a little pricey, you can also plump for The Dorchester Breakfast, which includes eggs cooked however you prefer and glass of champagne.

Available from The Dorchester

James Bond fragrances

james-bond-007-aftershave-ocean-royaleThe last 18 months has seen the release of three new 007 themed fragrances available online as well as Boots and other high street retailers.

Choose from James Bond 007, Ocean Royale and Quantum, and also look out for the signature fragrance in limited edition packaging.

Available from Amazon UK

Polo Shirt/Shirt

sunspel-poloIn Casino Royale Daniel Craig was kitted out in a polo shirt from Sunspel based on a 1950s design made from cloth with an extremely loose weave.

Putting it back into production, the shirt has been a colossal hit with fans and remains a popular item from the Sunspel catalogue both in the original navy blue as well as a variety of other colours.

Available from Amazon UK

Aston Martin driving day

aston-martin-noseAston Martin and James Bond are linked in public consciousness like strawberries and cream (or to be more Bond like, Gin and tonic), and while the price of an Aston means most of us will never afford one of our own there are Aston Martin driving days available at race tracks around the UK and, presumably, elsewhere too.

What could any James Bond fan want more than to get behind the wheel of an Aston Martin?

Available from Amazon UK

The Macallan 10 Year Old Fine Oak

the-macallan-10-years-old-fine-oakLast year it was the 12 year old sherry oak I recommended, but this year I’ve gone for The Macallan 10 year old Fine Oak instead, which also appeared in Skyfall.

The reason? This presentation box makes it ideal as a Christmas gift.

Available from Amazon UK
