Christmas Gift Ideas for Him | Men’s Christmas Gift Guide 2018
Christmas is just over a month away now! Are you looking for some gift ideas for a man in your life? Then you’ve come to the right place!
In this post, I’ve collected a few gift ideas for men — hopefully they’ll be helpful to you.
Christmas jumpers can be fun but are only worn once or twice during the festive season. For something more useful and long-lasting, go for a stylish, high quality jumper that is also a little bit festive, like the GANT Holiday Mock Neck Sweater (£135). It’s festive enough to be worn around Christmas time thanks to the Fairisle style knitted pattern, but it can easily be worn anytime during autumn and winter. GANT’s quality is amazing and a GANT jumper would make a lovely treat for a man in your life.
A luxurious bottle of spirit is always a good gift if the recipient is interested in trying new drinks. The Summerton Club is a premium spirits subscription box that sends out a fantastic aged bottle to our members every month. It makes a great gift for a connoisseur and is also a great gift idea for someone who lives far away or someone who is leading a minimalist lifestyle and prefers consumables.
The bottle above is an example of what a subscriber might receive. It’s the October Bottle of the Month which was a wonderfully smooth Limited Edition Swedish Single Malt Whisky from Mackmyra Whisky that The Summerton Club members were the first in the UK to try. You can see all previous Bottles of the Month here. There are lots of different subscription offers to choose from, all costing £50 per month.
If the man you’re buying for is more into wine, then a Le Petit Ballon wine subscription (from £24.90/month) makes a wonderful gift. With Le Petit Ballon, you get a box of sommelier wine delivered to your home each month to sample and enjoy, complete with tasting notes and The Gazette which is a lovely little wine magazine. When you set up your subscription, you take a quiz to set up your preferences to receive wines that suit your taste. It’s a great way to try new wines in the comfort of your home and a great gift for a friend or family member who loves to try new wines (or might be stuck in a rut always drinking the same ones!)
- A Luxurious but Practical Gift
When I turned 16, my dad gave me a Samsonite carry-on suitcase which I thought was a strange gift at the time. My dad did that a lot — gave us kids gifts that we were a bit confused about, but that then proved themselves really useful and thoughtful. That same suitcase is still going strong 15 years later and I use it all the time! It was a great gift and therefore, I recommend giving something similar to others too.
Samsonite make, in my opinion, the best quality suitcases and the Samsonite Prodigy Spinner Cabin Suitcase (£138.25) would make a lovely gift for someone who loves to travel or someone who doesn’t yet know he needs a high-quality carry-on suitcase in his life.
Modern life is busy and often one of the most precious gifts we can give someone else is our time. Box Of Favours is a small gift box full of favour cards and the concept is very simple — you give someone this box complete with a contract and fulfil the favours when the recipient asks you to.
It’s a nice little way to offer your help and a sweet gift idea to give to someone who doesn’t need or want any gifts, but could really do with a few favours or a hand here and there. Box Of Favours is available to buy from Amazon.co.uk (£9.99).
If you’re looking for a cool gift for a movie lover, then Red Candy has lots of great options for you, including artsy framed prints and cushions. One of my husband’s favourite films is Pulp Fiction so when I spotted this Pulp Fiction Cushion (£38.00), I knew it would make a great gift for him!
It’s a great looking, high-quality 42x42cm cushion in a bright yellow with an image of one of the most iconic scenes from the movie. The back of the cushion is black and the material is a luxurious faux suede. The inner is a plump and soft feather pad which feels lovely.
