THE FACE XMAS GIFT GUIDE 101:

That’s right, we’re back here again. Christmas. Mere weeks away. Whether you love it or loathe it (hey, no judgement here), it’s probably best not to leave gift buying ’til Christmas sodding Eve, traipsing down the high street in a hot sweat. So over the next few weeks, THE FACE will be here to lend a hand with fool-proof Christmas gift guides for music heads, fashion aficionados, art nerds, bookworms and more.

A book says a thousand words, and whether you’re shopping for fanatics or those in need of a handsome bookshelf spruce-up, retreating from the festive madness will be made that much sweeter with this handy guide to the best literary gifts. From hilarious nonfiction essays and niche independent titles to zines, proper escapism and bonafide witchcraft, there’s something here for everyone. And if the lucky sod isn’t convinced by their gift, remind them of this poignant, earth-shattering John Waters quote: “If you take somebody home and they don't have books, don’t fuck ’em.” His words, not ours.

Not for rookies. Here’s an advanced guide to the outdoors.

Nothing says I give a shit like gifting your loved ones with art. It’s thoughtful, cool and will have you looking hyper cultured. And when Christmas Day gets too much (nan’s pissed, turkey was crap, dad’s asleep), retreat to a corner of the house and immerse yourself in one of many photobooks from great independent bookstores like Climax or Claire de Rouen, or stare longingly at your stellar new print ’til your eyes bleed, or shock your granddad with Ami Evelyn Hughes’ filthy hot GUT magazine. Merry Christmas!

They say gifting clothes is never a safe bet. “They” have never been led by us: our guide will have you dressing your loved ones in the best that this year’s big (and emerging!) brands have to offer. Super soft knitwear, heavenly Heaven by Marc Jacobs, wallets to hold your coins and Bottega Veneta to spend your coins, don’t fret – there’ll be no huffs nor puffs come Christmas morning. Just figure out the sizing beforehand, alright?

Renew! Restore! Recondition! These are the founding pillars of Diesel’s new Second Hand initiative, which restores some of the brand’s highest quality, vintage Italian denim for your wearing pleasure. After all, it’s the fashion industry’s worst kept secret that the production of jeans is one of its biggest polluters. As denim heavyweights, Diesel have decided to fuel a sustainable resale revolution from the inside: more style, less carbon emissions, everyone’s happy. So far, 900 pairs of jeans have been given a second life, made recognisable by a red logo slapped across the back of each pair. Look at that, good as new! As the age old saying goes, there’s nothing cooler than wearing something more than once. Get your mitts on a pair of Diesel Second Hand jeans at selected stores in Italy or by clicking here.

OK, so the sun has stopped shining and there's an icy bite in the air, but it’s not all doom and gloom! Palace has returned with a larger-than-life collab, this time with Pez – no, not those old school candy dispensers from when you were a kid, but PEZ, aka Steve Morris, the man behind some of the Nineties’ most recognisable acid house flyers. From trippy shirts emblazoned with Helter Skelter and Raindance party artwork to proper retro bomber jackets, these bits will keep you warm for a long, cold winter of partying. Don't forget about OG Palace winter essentials, either: cosy fleece trackies, chunky knits and loads of denim. Get your hands on all of it from 11am BST on Friday 22nd October.
