Inside: Gift ideas for the men in your life this Christmas. Includes press samples.
Men are so tough to buy for I find. I struggle every year without fail. My husband likes things to be useful and needed rather than fun but I like to get a mix of both.
Chocolate is a popular choice for men, but why not make it extra special by getting a hamper of luxury chocolate goods? Willie’s Cacao is an amazing company that delivers the finest in chocolate. The Pure Indulgence hamper contains everything you need to enjoy the very best of their artisan chocolate products.
I always like to get my husband new clothes each Christmas, it means I get to choose what he wears rather than letting him loose in the stores! Mainline Menswear has lots of high-end brands to choose from to suit any budget.
Does he love to be in the kitchen? Every chef needs a descent set of knives and this knife block from Joseph Joseph is brilliant. The knives are so sharp and the block doesn’t take up space due to the knives being held in place by magnets.
Is he into running or trips to the gym? I have been recommended these bone conduction headphones time and time again and was able to try some out recently – they are amazing! The headphones don’t go inside your ears, instead, they sit against your head/jaw bone and the vibrations go straight to the inner ear.
Another from Mainline Menswear – something practical for dog walkers or runners than need to carry around keys and other bits and bobs to keep their hands free.
I love personalised gifts and these Date Night Tokens from Proper Goose are fab! Sometimes gift tokens just aren’t appropriate fro different likes/ dislikes and circumstances. Especially now with so many restrictions. I personalised this for ‘at-home’ date night ideas such as a home cinema evening, dinner for two etc… to make it realistic for the coming months.
The restrictions won’t last forever, we will be able to get babysitters again. So why not give the promise of a gift from buyagift? An experience day or a night away for two? Something to show him that you are still you and not just parents.
Working from home is a reality for so many now and home-office spaces are having to be created within homes. Why not give the gift of some funky art pieces from Ink & Drop? They have so many different prints available, there really is something for everyone.
No stocking would be complete without some smellies, would it? I love the smell of Lynx and this Africa body spray and body wash gift set comes with a pair of socks too!
I hope there are some ideas here for you. I find shopping for men incredibly hard but sometimes you have to think outside of the box.
Some of the items in this gift guide were sent as press samples. Some have affiliate links and I earn a commission should you choose to buy them. All words and thoughts are my own.
