When it comes to buying Christmas presents, I would say I normally do a relatively good job. But there is always something I struggle with – buying for the men in my life. Most of them are incredibly difficult to buy for, and they generally don’t give any hints, and when I ask them what they want the usual response is “nothing” or “I don’t know”. So this year, I decided to make it my mission to try and compile a varied list of gift ideas for men, and hopefully I can help those of you who also struggle…
For The Tech Lover
In this day and age, you can’t really go wrong with a tech-related gift, especially when it is practical. These Muji Touchscreen Gloves are the perfect gift as they’re not necessarily something you would buy yourself, and they are super handy for those who are constantly on their phone (they come in lots of colours and patterns). Another phone-related gift that would benefit most people is a portable phone charger like this one – perfect for the phone addicts or businessmen who need their phone to last that little bit longer. Or, if you’re looking to splash out, a pair of noise-cancelling good quality headphones like these Bose QuietComfort Headphones.
The Gifts That Keep On Giving
Buying a subscription as a present is brilliant, because every time they receive their monthly instalment they’ll be reminded of you! Magazine and newspaper subscriptions are great for those avid readers and you can personalise it by choosing one that is tailored to their interests from magazine.co.uk. If you’re buying for a coffee-lover, a Kopi Subscription would be perfect as you receive a bag of coffee every month for however long you want to buy for. There are so many different subscription boxes, so be sure to check out more at allsubscriptionboxes.co.uk.
For The Groomed Male
Seeing as this is primarily a beauty blog, I thought it was only fair that we were throw in some male-grooming options. A nice trimmer set like this Babyliss For Men Super Groomer Lithium Pro Face & Body Trimmer. If the man you’re buying for is into taking good care of his skin that maybe a good skincare gift set will be ideal for him – my fave picks are the Clarinsmen collection ‘grooming essentials’, The Body Shop Modern Gent’s Shaving Kit, and the Origins Men’s Grooming Treats Christmas Gift Set. I know that they’re labelled ‘for men’ for marketing purposes, but I think sometimes men can be put off by skincare, thinking its too feminine.
Of course the best gifts come from the heart, but if you really are stuck and you can’t think of anything that your man could possibly want, hopefully this was a bit of help. What do you get him for christmas?
