Frame Chains

If you know someone that's always forgetting where they put their glasses, then a fashionable frame chain could be the perfect gift for them.

Yes, these vintage-inspired, glasses accessories recently made a big comeback! Made popular in the 50s, retro frame chains can be attached to your glasses.

Glasses Cases & Care Kits

A lens care kit is a great practical gift. It allows glasses-wearers to keep their spectacles clean and free of dirt and bacteria. A set of microfibre cloths and cleaning sprays are not only extremely useful but also a very important accessory for looking after your glasses properly. Making them the perfect gift for a clean freak!

You can also treat the glasses-wearer in your life to a new case to protect their glasses from damage. Why not make it unique, by having a heartfelt message or the person's initials engraved onto the case?

Gifting Prescription Glasses

As long as you have their current prescription details, you can order prescription glasses or reading glasses for anyone. Just make sure you have the correct information so the lenses are made accurately.

Measure the width of the lens and nose bridge and the arm length of their current frames. This will help ensure the glasses fit properly.

When purchasing frames for someone else, take into account their eye and hair colour and skin tone. Also, take note of the shape of their face to ensure you get a pair that suits them perfectly.

Spex4Less have an extensive range of prescription spectacles to suit all tastes and budgets. From simple yet stylish frames starting at £12.97 to designer glasses from top brands such as RayBan, Jimmy Choo, Prada, Tommy Hilfiger, Versace, and many more.

Everyone Loves Sunglasses

If you know someone who loves sunglasses, why not buy them a stylish new pair from their favourite designer? Sunglasses are a great gift to give all year round. They provide clearer vision and UV protection for when you're lying on a beach, driving around or playing sports.

Sunglasses frames are also available with prescription lenses. This makes them an even more tailored gift for glasses-wearers and an ideal solution for when they don't want to carry an additional pair of specs around.

There is plenty of sunglasses options available in a variety of shapes and sizes, colours and designs, to suit every requirement and budget.
