Ladies today I want to talk gift inspiration for men & introduce you to Otway & Orford.  It's a new British brand whose origins come from wanting to create something different than the normal spot/stripe/paisley pocket squares that are on the market & at the same time to create pocket squares that really strike a chord with the wearer, reflecting their interests & passions.  

I think we can all agree that most men in our lives are impossible to buy for, especially if you're looking for that something special, that's personal, with a little luxury & will create a meaningful gift.

Well thanks to Otway & Orford  & their stunning unique, high quality hand finished 15oz Mulberry silk pocket squares, gift buying for the men in our lives has just got a whole lot easier.

Not only are their  pocket squares available in a wide range of distinctive contemporary designs featuring favourite sports, iconic aircraft & legendary cars but as a result of collaborating with leading artists & galleries each design is an original & vibrant work of art. Meaning that as well as being perfect for adding a little personality to a man's look by creating the perfect 'pop of abstract colour' when worn in the top pocket of a blazer, they could even be framed to create a stunning piece of artwork & hung in their office/man cave.  Making them the perfect gift for men of all ages, even those usually impossible to buy for.

As you can see from the images below I chose their Polo Silk Pocket Square design, which depicts a Polo scene & was created by Scottish artist Alasdair Banks.  I just love the vibrancy of this pocket square & it's perfect for adding a pop of colour & individuality to my husband's outfit.

Of course there's many more designs to choose from including artwork featuring the original Italian Job Mini Cooper, a Vulcan bomber, as featured in the James Bond film Thunderball & a classic Porsche 911.  Together with sports designs showcasing the Tour de France cycling, horse racing, rugby & skiing to name just a few.  You can see the full collection of their designs here.

Plus with Valentine's Day fast approaching, Otway & Orford are offering a free gift wrapping service.  So not only will your gift arrive beautifully presented in one of their gift presentation boxes but as part of the celebrations for February 14th it will be specially gift wrapped in a modern peacock feather design paper with hand-tied satin ribbon bow.

For more details & to get your loved one a truly unique & special gift, no matter what the occasion see here.  I know my husband is loving his & is already making plans to add to his collection!
