Alright folks, you have two days to go. That’s one week to prove that doing your Christmas shopping last minute isn’t the dumbest fricken’ idea you ever had. In fact, it’s genius. Because you can get it all done in one place, in under two hours. And because you’re doing your mad dash shopping on Chapel Street, you’ll have time for a cheeky bevy in between.

Let’s cut straight to it, shall we? Here are the Top 5 fail proof buys, for the guys in your life this Christmas.

They’re simple, well made and look ace on anyone. Plus, luggage always comes with the elusive promise of a weekend away sometime soon. If you want to make it a little extra – throw in some travel sized manly beauty products from Black Leopard and you’re sorted.

Mr Simple – 272 Chapel St, Prahran

Or gin, or Vodka or a reaaaally good bottle of vino if that’s what he’s into. A nice bottle of booze is always a good present – just make sure that it isn’t your run of the mill Jack Daniels – there’s nothing special about that. We’re sipping Starward Whiskey & Four Pillars Shiraz right now & you can get your hands on them at Dan’s on Chapel.

If you know your fella, or old mate well enough, you’ll know what kind of music he’s into. If it’s Harry Styles that he’s blaring out his car window, we can’t help you.  If he’s into a little old school rock, rap, metal or folk, there’s bound to be something in Greville Records that’ll have him swooning.

152 Greville St, Prahran

If he’s anything like the lads of Chapel Street, he’ll have a thing for ink. And if you’re lucky, it’s the good kind of ink that the artists at Chapel Street Tattoo are in the business of creating. While you can’t buy him a stencil, a Chapel Street Tattoo gift voucher is sure to do the trick!

155 Chapel St, Windsor

Sometimes the best gift is the gift of choice. Providence in South Yarra is the best kind of menswear store. They stock quality, known brands that traverse style and fashion preferences. Literally any guy can walk on in and find something that they like. A winner in anyone’s books.
