Teo's Picks The Beanie
"Nothing like a bi-colour beanie to see off the winter chill. Although I personally would prefer one of the brighter, companionably clashing options, there is something about this low key style which I know my Dad will love. It's also made from cashmere, naturally, so it'll keep his aged head extra warm. Which is key."
"There is little in this world chicer than a cashmere neckerchief - preferably in a pale shade, worn with a cable knit fishmeran's sweater and an oversized peacoat. I will, therefore, be gifting myself with this superfine number, which I'm A-OK with, because it's not all that expensive. "
"Part-blanket, part-super-cosy neck insulator, this enormous scarf is an all round British winter essential. My mum lives in deepest darkest Surrey (where it gets very cold indeed) so I'll be giving this one to her. "
"There is nothing like a classic striped scarf to top off a perfect midnight mass get-up. That or a walk of shame from the office christmas party to, well, the office look. This one, therefore, will be going to my brother-in-law. "
