Cool gift ideas for men this Christmas

Men are just the worst for buying for at Christmas time, aren’t they?

It takes me so long to think of something and sometimes I just give up altogether and go for the old favourite of socks.

He owns a lot of socks…

I wanted to try extra hard this year, to choose things that any man would be happy to receive on Christmas day. I know that Mr F would be chuffed with any of these.

Cool gift ideas for the man in your life

We have had Netflix for a couple of years now and couldn’t be without it. This is a great gift for the man in your life…. and also you! So many good movies and box sets to watch.

This has been something on his list forever and I have always been a bit hesitant. But at £50, this Remote Xcam Quadcopter from Dunelm is the perfect starter for him.

Each and every day he goes off to work in a suit – this year is the year to get smartened up! Dobell have so many gorgeous suits like this one in dark navy – all at great prices!

This is actually something I bought for his birthday this year. He is such a bookworm so rather than fill our home with books (we simply don’t have the room) a Kindle is the ideal solution.

This is such a cute idea, a great way to spruce up a drinks gift. Find Me A Gift have some great ideas and so many that can be personalised just like this one.

For the chef in your life, these knives from JML are the perfect gift idea. They look sleek and professional and will look great in any kitchen.

I have given a personalised present to my husband every single year since the children were born. This has to be one of my all-time favourites. It is from Freddie & Co and I adore it.

If you are looking for a non-gift idea then a trip to Go Ape is a great alternative. I went earlier in the year and had such a great time – I definitely want to go as a couple next time!

Why not give the gift of music this Christmas? ROXI from Electric Jukebox is such a great idea and perfect for the gadget & music lover in your life. ROXI works through the TV and gives 5 music entertainment products in 1: music Streaming, karaoke, radio, fun games and a therapeutic sound machine.

Did you know Amazon did fashion? I have to say I had no idea – they have shoes, jeans, jackets, belts – everything you can think of! Mr F always needs new clothes and Amazon is just so handy isn’t it? I love these Romika Laser Moccasin shoes – check out their fashion page for more!

Of course, no Christmas would be complete without sweets would it? This personalised jar is from Getting Personal and is a great gift idea for dads out there.


I hope that gives you a few ideas for the man in your life! If you have any other ideas then let me know in the comments!

I was gifted a few of the items in this guide but I only show you products that I love and as always, all words and thoughts are my own.

  1. LEGO…he’s all about the Lego. Although it’s not cheap! Normally get him a new whiskey too but the cupboard is full from all the other bottles from every birthday, Christmas and fathers day.
