buying a gift for a man is an intimidating affair. there are only x number of belts, wallets, bags, electronic items you could buy him and anything after that – you are repeating the same series of gifts. i have been dating/ married to my husband for so long, i have officially run out of ideas. i thought of just giving him a voucher to fortress or broadway and say – here you go honey ,” go buy yourself something you fancy okie?”.
i have not been inside a dunhill shop in years and the last time i bought something there, it was a gift for a 50 something year old client. but i there i was standing outside the dunhill flagship shop at prince’s building, the shop looked so good, i could not resist not going in.
oh my god, dunhill has really changed. it is no longer the boring, stuffy, old english gentleman kind of retail shop. i really really love dunhill. first of all, the leather bags are amazing. they are still made out of the best leather and yet the design is so modern and contemporary.
i think it was also the first time i said to myself – geez, don’t mind being a man right now if i could shop at dunhill ( and no, i am not paid by dunhill to say this) i was browsing and this amazing sales assistant jessie came over to help me. nothing like the usual – ” can i help you?” i really felt jessie’s genuine assistance. she did something not many sales people did – she qualified my need – who was i buying for? the personality type? his occupation? travel habits? i was also treated to a cuppa tea. very nice indeed.
so if you girls are looking for a gift for that special man in your life – be it your other half, your dad or your sugar daddy – it’s dunhill or nothing. oh, why i really like dunhill – they really have gifts that are of exceptional quality, well- conceived infused with a touch of stylishness and they say something about the person you are buying for.
