For your Mum
Do you struggle to buy for your mum every birthday and Christmas? A new pair of luxury glasses will make you her favourite child. But, when buying sunglasses for someone else, you need to get it right so consider these factors:
What is your mum’s face shape?
What style of glasses does she usually wear eg. Retro / oversized?
What brands does she prefer?
What is her general style eg. Minimal or colourful?
This might seem daunting as we have a large range of brands to choose from but it is easy to narrow down for personal choice. Here are some examples of gifts to help you:
To play it safe
Go for the Mulberry Charlotte SML001. This pair of glasses may be playing it safe but it is guaranteed your mum will love these sophisticated glasses, which she will be able to wear with any outfit all year around. If you aren’t quite sure about which frame will fit your mum’s face shape this is also a product and style we advise buying. Unsure of what colour? Try the Black or Tortoise to play it safe.
Retro or Oversized Mum?
Does mum love to follow the trends? For a retro frame go for the Max Mara Slimin beige. Or for an oversized style shop the Gucci GG0036S. If your mum follows minimal fashions stick to minimal colours; beige, black, tortoise. However, if your mum is more vibrant go for a more colourful frame or add a tinted lens at our checkout!
For your dad
Do you ask your dad every year what he wants for Christmas and he says ‘oh nothing’? I think we all have the same problem. To fix this issue we have some frames your dad will love, whether he is a sporty dad, office dad or he simply wants to look cool down the pub.
We have the best sports brands you can shop; Lacoste, Oakley and Maui Jim. If your Dad wants to look stylish yet sporty why not gift him theOakley Holbrook 009102? Oakley is renowned for its quality and sports performance lenses. The perfect gift for a sporty dad for 2020.
Does your dad like to look the part at work? Our top three brands we recommend you shopping in are; Oliver Peoples, Dita and Barton and Perreira. These three brands are all equally sophisticated yet stylish. They come in sunglass and optical, or prescription sunglasses so you can surprise your dad even more this Christmas by adding his prescription. Shop The Barton Perreira Joe Sun below:
On Trend Dad
Maybe your dad loves a new stylish pair of sunglasses every year. Have a look at Tom Ford, Ray-Ban and Police to find a pair he will love. To play it safe the Ray-Ban Wayfareris always a good choice.
For your Sister
Do you dread buying for your sister because you know you will always get it wrong? Don’t worry, this year she will get a pleasant surprise when she finds luxury glasses under the tree. If your sister prefers a sophisticated styling shop these brands: Cartier, Chanel and Michael Kors. For a trend-led, vibrant brand go for Gucci, Givenchy, and Alexander McQueen. Remember when buying glasses for other people you must consider their personal style! Again if you are unsure we advise going for a sophisticated frame and luxury brand in a classic colour. How about the Alexander Mcqueen AM0159S? Could your sister wear these frames in 2020?
