Every year I ask myself, what to buy the man who has everything? My Dad is notoriously difficult to buy for in that, whilst I always want to choose him something special, he would be just as happy with a bar of Toblerone each year! I think Gaz is even harder to buy for given he has pretty much everything he needs, and I must spend 90% of my Christmas shopping time trailing the shops or searching on line for gift ideas for the men in my life.
Hopefully my mens Christmas gift guide will inspire both myself and others and take out the stress of Christmas shopping this year! Even better, at the end of my gift guide you have the chance to win several of these ideas for yourself.
1. Monty Radio
My Dad loves nothing more than tinkering in the garage but is always complaining he can’t hear the radio from the lounge. I think he would love this gorgeous styled DAB/DAB+ Digital Radio and Bluetooth Speaker which would not only sound great, but would look equally lovely in the kitchen – suiting both him and my Mum!
Monty is beautifully finished in the most gorgeous real wood case, left untreated for an exposed wood grain. It also has some pretty amazing features –
- DAB / DAB+ Digital & FM Radio
- Bluetooth Connectivity
- 60 Radio Presets
- 10 Watt Ultra-Wide Single Speaker
- Analogue Signal Processing
- Mains Power or Rechargeable Battery (optional)
- Headphones, 3.5mm Aux-in and USB Charge Port
- MyEQ – Equaliser with 6 Presets and Independent Bass & Treble Control
- Dual Alarm Clock with Week/Weekend Settings and Snooze, Sleep & Countdown
For £99.99 it’s an amazing gift and one that everyone could enjoy.
2. Morocco Gold Oil
For the man who loves to cook, this Morocco Gold Oil which is a really luxurious addition to any chefs kitchen! Morocco Gold is a superior quality, single estate, extra virgin olive oil from olives grown and pressed in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains. Pure and sophisticated, it is first cold pressed directly from olives, solely by mechanical means and, having cooked with it, you can really taste the difference. With an RRP of £18.95 for a 500ml bottle it would make a great alternative gift for those who love to cook.
3. Buff Hat
There’s no better time than Christmas to stock up on winter necessities, and Buff has an amazing selection of hats for sports, leisure, or professional use. I love their beanie selection with prices starting at just £19.97 and suitable for mountain climbing, hiking, running or biking. They would make a fab stocking filler!
4. Sue Me Underwear
Is it even Christmas if you don’t get new socks and underpants?? SueMe have the softest, most comfortable, fast drying and naturally antibacterial underwear for men with added support to help retain shape and fit, day after day. Available in a range of colours, priced at £20 they are stylish and comfortable and all have the SueMe slogan knitted into the waistband. I think as far as Christmas pants go, these will be a huge hit!
5. Blue Microphone Snowball iCE
The Snowball USB Microphone from Blue Microphones is the number one selling line of USB wired condenser microphones, in the world!! With a unique design to deliver legendary sound, the Snowball iCE takes high quality audio with your computer to another level. Available in white or black, the Snowball iCE is mounted on a desktop sand or a standard mic stand, and can pivot back and forth for optimum positioning where required.
This would be great for Gaz for using on the computer as our built in microphone is terrible. Priced at just £42.99 with free delivery it’s a great gift for any computer whizz!
6. I-eX Gaming Chair
This faux leather gaming chair from Bean Bag Bazaar is perfect for any gaming fan! With unbeatable comfort and style, it has a panel of foam fixed into the back and seat to create added structure and comfort, whilst still giving that bucket seat positioning. Even better, the chair comes with a FREE footstool giving you both items for £74.99.
I think this would be a stylish addition to any man cave, I’m just not sure Gaz would ever re-emerge!!
7. STM Banks Back pack for Laptop
For anyone who needs to travel with a laptop, this STM Banks back pack is a must! With the capacity to fit both storage and style needs, it not only cushions your device but it suspends it away from the edges of the pack to protect it from all angles.
The ergonomic curve of the back pack keeps the pack secure but reduces the load on your shoulders, something I find invaluable suffering with back issues. It also has side pockets for water bottle storage, a front pocket and a safe inside zipped pocket for any valuables.
The subtle ingenious CableReady cable-routing channel system keeps all cords conveniently stowed out of the way so everything stays where it needs to be, doing what it should be. With a RRP of £84.99, this is worth every penny.
8. Coffee Subscription
The perfect gift for any coffee addict – an Extract Coffee Roasters subscription!! With a flexible subscription you can join on a 3, 6 or 12 month subscription and have coffee delivered to your door weekly, fortnightly, or monthly basis. Amazing!
With prices starting at £6.95 a month this is such a great gift idea and one that keeps on giving. I know exactly what Gaz will be unwrapping on Christmas morning that’s for sure!
9. The Summerton Club Subscription
If coffee isn’t your man’s thing, something a little stronger might just be! The Summerton Club have a range of subscriptions to gift to family and friends this year and all carefully selected. They deliver a bottle of Whisky, Rum or Brandy from their expertly curated collection to your front door once a month for the duration of your subscription.
With a strict criteria, they guarantee that every bottle must be aged to perfection, must not be the kind of bottles you’ll find on the supermarket shelf, pass the Summerton Club taste test (what a job that must be!) and they only ever supply full sized bottles, so no miniatures in sight! With prices starting at £150 this is an amazing present for someone special and one that I know my own Dad would love!
10. Adexe Watch
We are huge fans of Adexe watches in our house and it’s no wonder the stylish ‘THEY’ in Grande Silver and Chocolate Brown has recently been featured in GQ. It’s a stunning watch designed for those independent to convention and free from conformity, with the elegant sub-dial placement and contrasting trims radiating versatility.
Adexe watches now come in the most amazing gift boxes with a pair of pre-set extra straps in black or brown but should you wish an alternative colour, they will do their best to meet your needs. It doesn’t get much better than that!
With an RRP of £109 I don’t think you can beat Adexe for style, quality, or price!
11. Men-u travel kit
You can’t go wrong with toiletries and this gorgeous travel kit from Men-u offers a little luxury along the way. With Daily Refresh Shampoo, Citrus & Mint Shower Gel, Shave Creme, Healthy Facial Wash, Matt Skin Refresh and a choice of toiletry bags, this is such a great kit with everything you need to stay groomed while on your travels.
Having used their products before, I know that Gaz is a big fan and with a RRP of £34.95 I think he would be over the moon to see this under the tree on Christmas morning
12. Personalised Watch
If you’re looking for the perfect gift for a special Grandad, Find me a gift have this lovely personalised watch in a vintage style design with a modern twist. From the iconic Mr Beaumont of London, the watch is both stylish and comfortable to wear, with a practical 41mm face and a hard wearing genuine leather strap in a choice of three colours.
You can engrave the reverse side of the watch with a message of your choice, across 5 lines, and have it arrive, in no time, in a stylish gift box ready for Christmas morning. Priced at £59.99, this is such a thoughtful gift to show someone how special they are.
13. The Sharon Nowlan Collection Framed Picture
For the romantics amongst us, The Sharon Nowlan Collection has the most beautiful framed pictures and this one, perfectly named as “Us” is my favourite. Sharon Nowlan creates unique pictures in wooden frames using pebbles to represent special relationships or celebrate milestones. The meaning of each is person to both the giver and the receiver, and honestly, they are just beautiful!
Meticulously created and framed, I love that this is a gift everyone can enjoy, hung on the wall for years to come, remembering that Christmas it was unwrapped. The Sharon Nowlan collection starts at £25, with “Us” retailing at £55.
14. Mount Royal Pocket Watch
I’m praying my Dad doesn’t read my gift guide (although seriously, I’m not sure he even knows how to turn on the computer…) because this is literally the perfect gift for my Dad this Christmas. An avid pocket watch collector, the Mount Royal Double Hunter Skeleton Pocket Watch would be the most amazing addition to his collection.
With an intricate skeleton face, encased within a white, Roman numbered dial, the front and back opening is chrome plated for a lustrous shine, opening to reveal the unique face. Now I don’t know much about pocket watches but this is such a well crafted piece and the fact that it can be personalised, and comes in a gorgeous presentation box with a matching belt chain, makes this the perfect gift.
15. Jumper from Crew Clothing
16. Zippo Leather Toiletry Bag
This Zippo toiletry bag is the perfect companion for your travels, over night stays or visits to the gym. In a gorgeous mocha, made from genuine leather, the bag is debossed with the famous Zippo logo and comes with a zip fastening and carry handle. It’s a great size to fit in all necessities and you can tell by the quality it will really last. The bag comes gift boxed and has a RRP of £43.
17. Baabuk Urban Wooler Sneakers
Ever since I was introduced to Baabuk I have been obsessed by their sneakers. Unlike any I have seen before, they are made from 100% Portuguese sheep wool and they look amazing! With a durable rubber sole, in a huge variation of colours and designs, you can even put them in the washing machine on a 30 degree gentle spin – amazing!!
I love this pair in light grey with black soles from the Urban Wooler range. Priced at 120 Euros they will definitely be on Gaz’s list this Christmas, and no doubt Lewis’s too!
