Dunhill Tradition Hunter's Flask
You'll find one on every gift list around, but when - in reality - is one ever in need of a hipflask? We'll tell you when. When you're snow bound in a foreign airport, when you're stuck in a freezing car on the M4 (not in the driver's seat, we hasten to add) or when you're on a six-hour delayed train from Oxford - we speak from experience.
So next time you find yourself in need of a bump of something strong, reach for this little number. Dunhill's leather-bound hunter's flask features a built-in cup and is designed for both longer and shorter drinks.
