Celeb-inspired gift guide: son Damian Hurley


If he isn’t jetting off to France with his celebrity uncles or acting in his favourite soap, youngster Damian Hurley is by his model mother's side. Inheriting his mum's decorum and sense of style, ten-year-old Damian is regarded by many as the quinessential Brit child. Damian is used to living the high life, and is often seen in the company of Uncle Hugh Grant at film premieres. With Sir Elton John and David Furnish also at the godparenting helm, the youngster is inspired by the caring A-list family that "spoil him rotten".

Although he may have a more affluent lifestyle than many his age, Damian's love of travel and adventure is common to plenty of ten-year-olds. Mother Elizabeth admits that her son’s cricket sessions with fiancé Shane Warne may be lost on her “not very sporty” son, so it may be that Damian is keen to follow in the footsteps of his mother. Inspired by her acting career, Damian decided to take a role as extra in hit soap Neighbours. Taking to Twitter, Elizabeth wrote: "My son in heaven - he got to be an extra in Neighbours today."

Always kitted out in the best brands, the youngster was the epitome of class when he attended an annual charity cricket match to benefit Wellbeing of Women at Chippinghurst Manor in Oxforshire alongside his mother and fiancé Shane. Opting for smart shirts, suits, chinos a polo shirt tees, the stylish chap always appears elegant and refined when out and about.




Making your son the perfect little gentleman like Damian this Christmas has never been easier, and doesn’t require an A-list price tag. Opting for traditional British products, stylish kidswear or equipment for them to embark on their own adventures is a safe bet for most boys in the 9-13 age range.
