I can't believe it's already December and Christmas is just around the corner. To help you out with shopping for the men in your life, I have put together The Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide for Him. The list features a number of clothing items, accessories and electronics from some of the best Scandinavian brands.
The Scandinista Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide for Him
Sandqvist Stig Backpack
Sandqvist is a Stockholm-based accessories brand that produce backpacks and tablet cases. I bought one of these earlier in the year and it has proven itself to be quite durable. I like that Sandqvist is less visible on the streets than Herschel and Fjällräven. Works well for a weekend trip or as a gym bag.
– £100 from Liberty.
Wood Wood Green Polka Dot Shirt
This polka dot shirt from Copenhagen-based streetwear brand, Wood Wood, is perfect for winter. Can be worn on its own or with a simple sweatshirt for a smart-casual look.
– £140 from Liberty.
Rains Long Jacket in Olive Green
Rains is a Danish rainwear brand that produce fashionable, yet practical jackets from lightweight materials. I particularly like the longer edition of their signature raincoat, which features snap fastenings and pockets with button closures.
– £89 from John Lewis.
Nudie Jeans Vladimir Jumper
Swedish denim brand, Nudie Jeans, is behind this excellent grey chambray jumper. Made with a Merino wool blend, this jumper can be worn year-round for a simple and understated look.
– £89 from Urban Outfitters.
Libertine-Libertine Boston Wool Jumper
This jumper by Danish streetwear label Libertine-Libertine is made from a soft wool cashmere blend. Like Libertine-Libertine's line of Oxford shirts, the Boston jumper is made in Europe (Italy to be exact).
– £105 from Urban Outfitters.
Norse Projects Bjarki Wool Socks
Norse Projects always produce durable basics and these wool socks are no different. Knitted from Merino wool, the socks feature a mix of different stitch types.
– £15 from Norse Projects.
S.N.S. Herning Torso Crew Neck Jumper
Danish knitwear brand S.N.S. Herning produce high quality fisherman-inspired jumpers using 100% virgin wool. This particular jumper will guarantee you keep warm this winter and features an interesting textured pattern.

Bang & Olufsen X Pepsi BeoPlay H6 Headphones
Bang & Olufsen have had huge success with their BeoPlay line of speakers and headphones. For the H6 Series of headphones, Bang & Olufsen have collaborated with a variety of artists to make the headphones different each season. The pair pictured above is from a collaboration with Pepsi. Pepsi might not be the first brand you think of when you think of “art” or “fashion”. Yet, their recent collaboration with Original Penguin proved to have some interesting pieces and the headphones above are no exception.
– £179.90 from Amazon.
