Alison Hobbs, sales assistant and visual merchandiser at Potters Cookshop, Hockley comes up with this top list for men who like to cook and entertain:
Dinnerware from Le Creuset
This contemporary new range comes in six colours that complement each other so you don’t have to buy one colour. The Flint and Blue colours are particularly manly and are selling well already.
Signature Knife Block Set with Sharpener from Robert Welch Designs
A set of key knives that looks smart and modern without a massive footprint, with a handy built in sharpener.
Cole & Mason Precision+ Regent and City Concrete Mills from DKB Household
Smart looking modern mills that are new in and already attracting attention.
Corkcicle Canteens from Auteur
The elegant Walnut Wood, Gunmetal and Navy canteens are popular for men – great for commuters, runners, and those ditching plastic bottles. They keep drinks cold for 25 hours or hot for 12 hours.
Vodka Paddle from LSA International
This is a good gift – a statement piece for dinner parties, brining vodka shots to the table.
