Sunglasses make great Christmas and birthday gifts because they are an affordable kind of luxury when compared to gifting favourites such as designer handbags and shoes; so if you’re feeling the pinch this year, you can still make someone feel really special with a pair of designer sunnies. They also make great gifts because they are relatively easy to choose and can be used all year round. But we’re not saying that shopping for eyewear gifts is a walk in the park either; there are still a few style rules to follow if you’re shopping for a friend or family member. So to give you some assistance
I once had a friend called The Fonz. My friends and I first gave him this nickname when we first discovered that he never left the house without his leather jacket and a pair of sunglasses. In fact, he rarely attended an event, day or night, summer or winter, without his trusty Ray Bans. We holidayed in Ibiza; naturally, he sported sunglasses throughout the duration.

The first step starts with determining your face shape. Is it round, oval, oblong, triangular, square, heart or diamond shaped? If the answer isn’t immediately obvious, ask for a second opinion from a friend or family member or take a selfie of yourself facing directly into the camera to get a better idea.

It’s a well known fact that shopping online can save you heaps of money, especially when it comes to designer eye wear! Armed with a smart phone camera, my girlfriend and I decided to do a little fact finding mission and paid a visit to a well known local high street opticians to check out their product line up and prices – Mr money saver himself, Martin Lewis, would be proud I’m sure!
