JOE's Christmas Tips: Buy a present you can "borrow"
Remember that episode of the Simpsons when Homer bought Marge a bowling ball for her birthday so he could use it himself? Genius...
Christmas is just around the corner and JOE still has to buy a few presents.
When looking online (we're not one for the hustle and bustle of the high street) we had the bright idea of buying awesome presents for the men in our life that we could occasionally borrow.
Naturally, being the group of fashion icons that we are, one of the first places we looked was Moss Bros.
We knew their price range would cover almost every gift budget. From our brother who'll only get us a selection box (which he'll probably eat) to our dad who'll be spoiling us because we
claim to still believe in Santa.
Moss Bros have so many offers coming up that buying presents with them will be an absolute doddle.
They are offering 20 per cent off everything from Black Friday until Cyber Monday (November 28- December 1). They're also offering an extra 20 per cent off selected accessories and that's on top of their end of season sale which is also running.
Here are a few of the gifts we'll be
getting giving this year:
On a budget
This will do for our cousin who wants to be Conor McGregor and for ourselves when GAA dinner dance season comes back around. These tartan ties and bow ties are priced at €14, but are available for a great deal less once you apply all the discounts.
Some French Connection socks discounted from €22 will do nicely as a gift to ourselves this Christmas. Sure we may as well put together some winter woolies while we're at it - French Connection hat €43, gloves €58, scarf €58.
They deserve it
Getting the Moss London crew neck jumper for our brother seems like an excellent idea, especially when we consider that it is being discounted from €58 and he is the same size as us...
The Ted Baker bag is €318. It will retain much of that value when you borrow it off your father for a weekend and don't return it for a year. The same can be said for the rest of these Ted Baker goodies: the tie - €71, the black wallet and money clip gift set - €72 and the precious stone cufflinks - €72.
