Here we are in November, and before we know it our minds will be buzzing with thoughts about Christmas presents! Today I’ve put together a list of great Christmas gifts for men that they’ll actually want. So be sure to bookmark this for when it’s time to get that Christmas shopping done.
Trim it baby
There’s only one way for guys to get their facial hair right, and that’s by having a top beard trimmer at their disposal. But not all beard trimmers are created equal. If you’re thinking about gifting a beard trimmer to your man this year, be sure to check out Panasonic’s men’s grooming range (from £39.99).
Has your beloved been going to sleep with a fusty old tee and old jogging bottoms of late? If so, why not make him feel king of the bedroom again with some pyjamas from Next (from £25)? They also happen to have some cheeky themed Christmas nighttime threads out this year which I’m finding quite irresistible….
The mother of all pillows
If the man in your life loves nothing more than the most blissful night’s sleep, head on over to Nanu where you can create the perfect tailor-made pillow for him to rest his lovable head on each night (from £25).
Does your fella fancy himself as a bit of a mixologist? Or perhaps you have a sneaky dream of him mixing you endless cocktails after the kids have gone to bed? Either way, when it comes to Christmas gifts for men who love a tipple Fever Tree’s The Art of Mixing (£10.50) will teach them how to make all sorts of delicious drinks from the world’s leading bars. Perfect for diffusing family carnage over the Christmas period!
A grown-up wallet
Every man should own a quality leather wallet. With that said, we love Bellroy’s Hide and Seek Wallet (£75). A classic wallet from the outside, the magic trick is the hidden pocket on the inside, for keeping cash under wraps.
Smart speaker sounds
Technology doesn’t always have to cost an arm and a leg. If your guy has been hankering for a smart speaker then the Sony SRS-XB10 smart speaker is absolutely great value at £39.99. Time to relive the party days of his youth and get the beats started (please though, just no dad dancing!)
Be the Badass
The ultimate in self-help books for guys, if the man in your life is a little “stuck” or perhaps sliding into an early midlife crisis the book You Are a Badass (£6.65) will help him understand why he is the way he is, how to love what he can’t change, how to change what he doesn’t love, and how to use The Force to kick some serious ass.
An invitation to pig out
If experiences are more your man’s bag, then why not splash out on a night at The Pig? Okay I know, maybe not quite exclusively categorised as Christmas gifts for men but hey, it’s the perfect post-Christmas treat for the two of you. Read: farm the kids off to the grandparents and enjoy a special night just the two where you can lick the wounds of Christmas family drama together. We’ve previously stayed at The Pig Brockenhurst (from £160) and can’t speak highly enough of it.
It’s in the bag
And if a weekend away is on the cards, make sure he looks the part with a smart weekend bag. We love the aptly named Weekender Bag from Stubble & Co (£155) which is perfect for a long weekend away.
A marvellous masterclass
Does the man in your life love to learn? When it comes to Christmas gifts for men the gift of learning can far outstrip a tangible item don’t you think? A subscription to The Guardian’s Masterclasses features courses and workshops taught by award-winning professionals including everything from photography to public speaking and leadership skills and everything else in-between (short courses from £49). Perfect for nailing those 2020 resolutions.
I really do love the Skagen line of watches for smart yet super affordable watches and have previously gifted Mr C one at Christmas. Right now, their Hybrid Smartwatch (£122) gets my vote for being a good looking but price-effective timepiece.
Well I hope this round-up of Christmas gifts for men has given you some inspiration of what to buy for the guy in your life this year.
