Christmas gift guide: Travel and adventure ideas inspired by James Bond


Part three of Director‘s Christmas gift guide inspired by James Bond looks at products for those with a sense of travel and adventure…

Barbour Sports Jacket 007 isn’t exactly in a festive mood when he and M escape from MI6 operative turned cyber-terrorist Silva to Bond’s ancestral home in the Highlands in Skyfall. But any real-life recipient of the slim-fitting, wind-cheating, highly practical garment he wears for the trip will be delighted with this winter-shirking gift. £399

Tom Ford Snowdon TF237 Sunglasses Tom Ford shades have featured in Skyfall and Quantum of Solace, but this is the pair Daniel Craig was spotted wearing on Spectre sets. Classically-shaped, it’s a model also favoured by Jake Gyllenhaal and Fearne Cotton. £241

On The Tracks of 007 From Jamaican mango trees through to hanging atop Rio cable cars, Bond has blitzed his way through myriad exotic locales. Dutch writer Martijn Mulder has spent the last 15 years visiting them for this forensically researched book. £18.30 (b&w), £44 (colour) 

The Oakley Flask, Macallan The Scotch whisky-makers didn’t ask to be in Skyfall, but accounted for an estimated seven per cent of all product-placement screen time, netting the company £4.4m worth of exposure. Muse over these stats while supping from this sable flask, produced in conjunction with Oakley. £600

Vuarnet Glacier sunglasses Donned by Daniel Craig while hunting down the Austrian kingpin in Spectre’s Alpine-filmed scenes, these mineral lenses have enjoyed a serious cachet among mountaineers since the 1980s. £324

Globe-Trotter luggage collections The label has launched two ranges of leather goods (Spectre and Moneypenny) in stately navy/black, which includes attaché suitcase, a 21in trolley case, leather passport holder, business card holder and ladies’ business bag. Spectre prices range from £105 to £1,560; Moneypenny prices from £170 to £975
