Most of us have men to buy for at Christmas. Whether it’s our dad, our partners, brothers or friends, I thought it would be good to put together a gift guide of ideas for the men in your life. I have quite a few men to buy for and so I hope this gives you some gift buying inspiration too.

Here are a few gift ideas for him to get you started.

Christmas Gifts for Him

Something to eat or drink

Food and drink gifts are always well received at Christmas and this year one of our favourites to gift is a limited edition “Crimbo Limbo” gin calendar from Pickering’s Gin. The makers of the original gin-filled Christmas baubles have now created the “Crimbo Limbo” calendar as a fun and interactive way to remind us which day of the week it is between Boxing Day to New Year’s Eve! Featuring six miniature bottles of Pickering’s award-winning gin with classics like London Dry gin and exclusive festive flavours like Chocolate Orange and Spiced Pear & Cinnamon. A great gift that will help anyone keep track of the days after Christmas!

The CleanCo range includes gin, rum, tequila, vodka and whiskey non-alcoholic alternatives that are great for anyone choosing a healthier lifestyle, designated drivers or people who just don’t want to drink alcohol. Any of the CleanCo range would make a great gift this year.

Another great non-alcoholic option is Citizen Spritz. The instant spritz mixes are perfect for the festive season, a sophisticated refreshing drink without the fuss!

Something to compliment food and drink

So many men love cocktails and a cocktail set can make a wonderful gift. Complete with everything they need to become chief mixologist for their friends and family, this Nine Piece Cocktail Set from VonHaus would be well received this Christmas. In contrasting gold and green it would look great on any drinks cabinet or sideboard, ready to make all manner of delicious cocktails!

Mugs are always a good gift and VistaPrint have a fantastic range of mugs that you can personalise to create the perfect mug for any man in your life.

Something practical

One of the most practical gifts you can give this Christmas is a Qwickhose Starter Set. Perfect for any man who loves time in the garden, cleaning his car or watering plants, Qwickhose is the garden hose connector that won’t pop off! Borne out of the frustration of typical ’teeth’ connectors that break and leak, Qwickhose is innovative, easy to use and designed to last. Its wing-lock design is unlike anything on the market making it something great to gift this year.

A really useful gift for any man would be a new toolkit. Some men may not have a tool kit at all and some may have lost or broken some things over the years, leaving their tools needing an update and a refresh. This 94 piece Hand Tool & Screwdriver Toolkit from VonHaus has everything the man in your life could need to finish all the jobs around the house – whether it’s simply putting up a new shelf or doing some repairs.

A beautiful but practical gift would be a new notebook and they don’t get nicer than this Moleskine Monogrammed Notebook from Boutique Gifts. Available in a range of colours and styles, everyone could use a good quality notebook. This one is durable, feels great and looks super professional too.

Calendars are always a great gift idea and Danilo have so many calendars perfect for every interest and personality.

Something techy

If you’re looking for a techy gift that they probably won’t have already, a digital breathalyser could be just the thing. The AlcoSense Elite 3 is a sleek pocket-sized breathalyser that features the highest specification of Semiconductor alcohol sensor technology available.  It’s easy to use, has colour-coded results and automatically performs a sensor clean after every time it is used as well as periodic deep sensor cleans, helping to keep your reading at its most accurate and the breathalyser performing at its best throughout its lifetime.  A fantastic, different gift idea this Christmas.

Most men have multiple gadgets to charge so wouldn’t it be great if they could charge everything in one place? Well, now they can thanks to ChargeTree Go from STM Goods. Available in two colours, it’s the perfect gift for tech lovers. The 3 in 1 charger folds completely flat with a simple yet innovative design. You can charge your wireless phone, AirPods and Apple Watch all at the same time and when not in use, the charger can fold flat to work as a standard wireless charging pad.

Earbud headphones are a great gift this Christmas and we love the Edifier TWS1 Pro 2 True Wireless Earbuds. They offer exceptional sound quality, an impressive battery life and active noise cancelation, making them perfect for music lovers on-the-go. The earbuds deliver a high quality listening experience, anytime, anywhere and come in a range of colour options. They are the sort of gift that anyone would love to receive.

Another great gadget is a Tile bluetooth tracker. Tile Mate has a hole in it so you can fix it to a keyring and attach to literally anything. Available in a range of colours and patterns, it has a three year battery life and a 250ft range. Working alongside a handy app means you’ll never lose anything ever again.

Something fun

Every man would appreciate something fun to keep them entertained long into the new year and we love this 100 Movies Scratch Off Bucket List poster. If the man in your life is a movie fan he’ll no doubt have seen many of these classic movies already but it’s a great excuse to rewatch old favourites and discover something new. Covering so many genres, it’s a fantastic list to work through as a couple or family.

If the man in your life likes games then give him the opportunity to take a reminiscent ramble through the most momentous events of the late 20th Century in Nostalgia. It’s a game of fads, fashion and fun including rhe good, the bad, the funny and the frivolous! Featuring nodding dogs, pogoing Punks, Hammer Horrors and so much more, covering so many facts and historical moments from the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s. I can see this being a fantastic hit at Christmas and through the New Year.

Nostalgia Game

If you know men who love party games then We’re All Gonna Die is a great choice. Embrace the hilarity and absurdity of life’s unpredictable moments with a game that will have you in stitches as you navigate through unexpected scenarios. Great fun over the festive season and beyond.

We're All Gonna Die

Another great game that is strictly for adults, Joking Hazard is inspired by the hit webcomic Cyanide & Happiness. You compete with your friends and family to finish an awful three-panel comic strip about friendship, violence, sex and everything in between. It’s like Cards Against Humanity but with pictures!

Alternatively, Master Dater from Cyanide & Happiness is a great choice this Christmas. In the game, players vie for each others’ attention and affection by creating perfect but horrible dates pandering to very specific dating interests. Combine a head and a body into a perfect match and argue your way into the heart of the sexy single! Master Dater is great fun and the man in your life will love it but you’ll cringe playing it with him!

For a game that’s a little different, Quoridor is a fantastic choice. An elegant, abstract strategy game where you try to move your piece to the opposite side of the board whilst your opponent does the same. But, in Quoridor you can place wooden walls to block their progress – and they’ll be blocking yours too! This is a game that is fun to play, a real thinker, that also looks great, feels great and would make a wonderful gift this year.

Something sentimental

Sentimental gifts are always something anyone will appreciate, especially at Christmas. This year we love the VistaPrint range of personalised gifts with something for everyone. Bookmarks make a really lovely inexpensive stocking filler that would be used throughout the year.

Photos are another lovely, thoughtful gift but instead of framed photos or canvases, you can now get photo plaques that can sit in pride of place on any desk or shelf. With a built in stand, they can be displayed vertically or horizontally and make a really lovely gift.

Something different

Gift experiences are always a nice gift if you’re looking to give something a little different. This year we love Up at the O2 as a top gift for him. Climb the O2 and see London as you’ve never seen it before! We climbed the O2 a couple of years ago and it really is a fantastic experience. You can see the whole Buyagift range here.

  1. I bought a personalised cup for my husband he loved it. I got one with our dog on it. It’s a good gift for somebody who is really hard to buy for!
