Why a leather jacket is the perfect Christmas gift
If you’re wondering what to get your other half for Christmas, wonder no more. A leather jacket makes the ideal Christmas gift, and here’s why.
1. Leather jackets aren’t generational
Unlike some fashion choices, leather jackets are timeless. They don’t define a particular generation - both old and young will look equally awesome in a leather jacket, because that is what makes a leather jacket so fabulous - its versatility.
From figure hugging leather jackets for her to wear over a party dress, to straight cut leather jackets for him to throw over a jumper and jeans when he takes the kids to the park. The cut isn’t important, it’s the reliability of the leather material that is.
2. Leather jackets are affordable
Leather jackets aren’t a cheap fashion choice, but then neither are they cripplingly expensive. Expect a good quality leather jacket to set you back between £100-£250, depending on colour and style.
And if that is still out of your price range, consider this - a leather jacket is a lifetime investment, not fast fashion. If you take care of your leather jacket, you’ll be wearing it for years to come. You can’t say that about many clothes!
3. Leather jackets are versatile
Leather jackets aren’t only to be worn in Spring or Autumn, a leather jacket is versatile, designed to be worn all year round.
You can layer clothing under them in Winter, throw them over your shoulder to protect yourself from the heat of Summer, perfect for keeping out blustery Autumnal winds, and and great for skipping between the changeable temperatures of a British Spring day.
4. Leather jackets are durable
No matter what you or life throws at your leather jacket, it isn’t going anywhere any time soon. A leather jacket is designed to last, that’s the beauty of the material of a quality leather jacket. Lambskin leather jackets are the softest leather jackets and the most durable.
5. She’ll love a leather jacket
Leather jackets aren’t just for men, they’re for fashion conscious women too. So if you’re wondering what gift to get your girlfriend, buying her a leather jacket could score you some serious brownie points.
Yes you could play it safe and get her a bottle of perfume or a piece of jewellery, but that’s been tried and tested over and over, so why not break the mould this year, think outside of the box and purchase her something that she actually wants and can use all year round?
6. A leather jacket is for everyday use
Some gifts are for special occasions only, but a leather jacket is the gift that keeps on giving, all year round. It can be worn every day if you want, to work to the bar, to a restaurant, to the park for a walk - a leather jacket is something to be enjoyed on a regular basis.
So don’t take the generic path and purchase an ordinary gift for the one you love this Christmas, get a meaningful gift that they’ll get the most out of every day of the week.
7. A leather jacket is low maintenance.
A leather jacket is not a gift that will break your bank, nor require a lot of upkeep to ensure it stays in tip top condition. It is a win-win all around. No one wants to receive a gift that requires a lot of maintenance, which is why a leather jacket is the perfect Christmas gift.
Spot cleaning to remove any dirt and wiping it dry when it gets wet is pretty much all the care a leather jacket needs. You can condition a leather jacket with leather conditioner if you want, but if you hang your leather jacket up between wears and don’t leave it wet or hang it on a radiator to dry out, it will stay in perfect condition.
