Christmas Gift Guide for Him

Christmas Gift Guide for Him

Ho-Ho-Oh what to buy the men in our lives?! Aren’t they always the most difficult to buy for?

We certainly think so!

Fear not, we’ve found some great ideas to inspire your gift buying and reduce headaches from old favourites to products we’ve never seen before.



The Christmas Cupboard Jigsaw Puzzle

Around £12 from various Ravensburger stockists

We wondered in which of our gift guides we should include this wonderful Christmas themed puzzle, simply because it works for every member of the family. However we’ve plumped for men because they can be so difficult to buy for 😉

This design is another great one from Colin Thompson for Ravensburger. The Christmas cupboard is full of lots of interesting, compartments with bright, colourful and intricate designs. Subtle colour shades make it more difficult as a puzzle but also creates a huge feeling of accomplishment when you find a crucial piece to bring the design to life. It’s a marvellous subject for a jigsaw puzzle, especially at this time of year, and will be a great family bonding activity to do too, over a glass of wine and mince pie.


Bluebeards Revenge – Eau de Toilette Gift Set

RRP £24.99

What man doesn’t need new “smellies” at Christmas? It is a great time to stock up on keeping your man smelling sweet all year round and this fragrant gift set designed to keep the manliest of men smelling his best at all times. We are huge fans of Bluebeards Revenge and this gift set contains not only a fresh and masculine shower gel but a refreshingly modern Eau de Toilette too. The vibrant blue bottle is very striking and the skull and crossbones design means that your man can place this bottle on the shelf and be confident that he will stand out from the crowd.


Maui Jim Moonbow Sunglasses

– RRP £245

Now we are acutely aware that it is winter time and sunglasses are not the first thing that springs to mind when selecting a gift but the Maui Jim team told us that they know buying gifts for men can be tricky once you’ve exhausted the classic pair of socks (!), but Maui Jim is the perfect alternative. Their sunglasses come in a variety of classic and contemporary designs so that even the most discerning of tastes will find a pair they love, and each of their frames features our unmatched lens technology, too. Maui Jim lenses offer protection from 100% of UV rays and glare, and our technology enhances colour. Not only are the glasses uber stylish, they provide the absolute crispest optics available. 20% thinner and lighter than standard glass and they offer the best scratch and solvent resistance. So while they may possibly be a little more expensive than your average Christmas present, they are certainly not your average type of sunglasses! Seeing really is believing with these sunglasses.


Lumie Go 75

– RRP £74.95

No one likes getting up on the dark mornings but the Lumie Bodyclock GO 75 comes with a choice of wake-up sounds to go with the light, including Big Ben chimes and a dawn chorus so the choice of how you wake up really is yours. We have been fans of Lumie for a long time and in comparison to some other alarm clocks, the Lumie Bodyclock Go 75 is the refreshing way to wake up. It’s effective for healthy sleep, sports training, energy at work, and a useful complement to a lightbox in treating SAD. It is a great all round product that isn’t just suited to the men in your life, our reviewers children were particularly taken with this!!


LINDY IEM-50X Hi-Fi in-Ear Headphones

– RRP £49.98

When every child wants “retro” style big headphones now, the Lindy IEM 50X in ear headphones are sleek and stylish and perfect for the man in your life. We are told by Lindy that these discreet headphones offer a balanced and neutral high quality sound reproduction with the facility to tune lower frequency response according to your personal preference using a Dynamic Bass Tuning Control. The IEM-50X headphones feature a Dynamic Bass Tuning rotary control – allowing users to switch from the standard, neutral voicing of the earphones to a more bass rich sound. Package Contents Include:  IEM-50X Earphones  Carry pouch  S/M/L super soft dome ended ear tips (Black)  S/M/L super soft flat ended ear tips (Transparent Black)  User guide The Lindy IEM-50X are faultless in terms of comfort and build quality as they have obviously been well designed and, thanks to the range of ear tips, a perfect and comfortable fit is almost guaranteed! Our review panel have loved these ear phones, not only are they comfortable but they help to cancel out exterior noise making listening to music so much more enjoyable without the deafening noise of the kids (oops).


Chriselli : Krug Baumen Mens Watch 2011km

– RRP £185

This is a simply stunning gift for any man.

A watch is a timeless present (see what we did there) and a Krug Baumen timepiece is not only classic but on trend all at the same time. This wristwatch comes with a black leather strap and a metal case which complements the silver face, although there is a slightly more distinctive alternative gold and black face design that our panel were quite partial too. It is worth noting that the strap is not overly big, so worthwhile checking the fit.

Our review panel considered this to be a beautiful watch with classic chronograph face. It keeps good time and one of our reviewers has received several compliments from people about it. If you are looking for a gift that is suitable for every occasion, the Krug Baumen watch from Chriselli is the perfect solution.


Rum Cask Cider Christmas Pudding

from £8 including p&p from Blackberry Cottage

Rum is often a taste acquired more with the chaps, arguably the older chap too so we quite like this gift for a Grandad. A Christmas pudding full of rum cask cider-soaked fruit that Grandad can enjoy all to himself, if he wants to of course. Not just any old cider either, it’s produced by a local cider maker, Tutts Clump Cider, who use a variety of apples from West Berkshire, which has been fermented and matured in oak rum barrels to give that hint of rum, presented in muslin and completed with a manly ribbon.

Do you have a bearded man in your life? If so he may not even know it yet but he’ll need this in his life!  Presented with an original illustration and personalised with the beardy ones name, it comes in a beer type can with a sealed ring pull can that can only be opened by pulling it, but it is easily resealable with the supplied press on lid.
