Men can be so difficult to buy for so I love putting together male gift guides. Here are a few things for the man in your life, whether it's a friend, your dad, a boyfriend, uncle or, if you just fancy getting something for yourself. Hopefully this will inspire you this Christmas! You can read my gift guide for her here.
Food - Well, you can't go wrong really can you with food? I always find nice chocolate always goes down well (Hotel Chocolat is my personal favourite, they do huge slabs which are incredible and this gin and chocolate set is pretty cool too) but, if he's into working out, you could always treat him to a delicious tub of their protein truffles, protein brownies or even their protein popcorn. I've tried the truffles and they taste like heaven.
Grooming - When it comes to grooming, you can't go wrong with a nice hair set or some toiletries. I love Paul Mitchell, they've got some really cool sets this year. One of my favourite brands and I know a lot of guys who love it too, is Label M for men, they have some amazing gifts out this year including this essential kit which even includes a nice wash bag too.
More grooming gifts; if he's into cleansing, you can't go wrong with skincare. There are some amazing skincare kits online here (it's always best to buy the gift sets at Christmas, it works out so much better). I was also recently introduced to ROUTINE for men which is a really cool brand, it's formulated specifically for mens skin and is natural too. Also, if he's into his sport, the aching muscle range by Elemis is a dream come true.
Speaking of grooming, you certainly can't go wrong with The Body Shop. I went in the other day and couldn't believe how good the Christmas gift section was. They come in the most amazing tins too this year. Online here. Crackers - If he is into nice smelly stuff, he'll love this quirky take on grooming. Nothing smells better than Molton Brown and you can get matching his and hers crackers. Online here and bursting with nice treats.
Shaver - I think a really good shaver is a great Christmas present as it is something that will really last. Plus, you can pad it out with a nice shaving kit too. Braun's Series 9 is a good call according to the men in my life - it's meant to be the worlds most efficient shaver so if that doesn't sound good I don't know what does. Bluebeards always have some really nice kits which compliment a new shaver, perfect to throw into the stocking if you do buy him a shaver (I always buy my brother sets from here and he loves them!).
Alcohol - You can't go wrong with a nice bottle of something. For me, I love Baileys and Moet but it totally depends on what the man in your life loves. Is he a gin lover, a whisky drinker or a beer lover? Grant's whisky is a good call.
Music - If he's into his music, you can't go wrong with nice new headphones (Beats always go down well) or a nice new speaker. I've got the UE Boom and boys go crazy for it, it's amazing plus it's basically impossible to destruct, waterproof and perfect for travel plus it's so loud. It's designed for adventures. Jarre also do some incredible speakers (they look so cool). There's so much choice when it comes to technology but I always find it goes down well.
Watches - A watch is such a good present as it is something that really lasts and can be worn every day. Daniel Wellington watches are my favourite. They're absolute classics and not too expensive either. The quality of them is amazing. You can get 15% off Daniel Wellington watches here with promo code DWemtalks too! Thank me later!
A bag - You can't go wrong with a nice holdall or bag. I love this one so much, it's a collaboration between Pantone Universe and Redland London. The designs are amazing and the bag is so well made, it's really sturdy. It's perfect for trips away and the gym! I also don't think you can go wrong with a nice wallet or a nice leather bag for Christmas, something that will be used a lot and will last forever. There's a great selection of wallets online here.
