Christmas Presents He *Might* Not Hate (+ A Go Ape Giveaway)

christmas presents for him uk

There's no doubt about it, shopping for the men in our life can be incredibly tricky. There's only so many pairs of slippers, socks or novelty boxers that you can buy one man. And it's got to be said, I'm not sure we would be over the moon to receive something so similar every year, so this Christmas why not think a little bit differently and treat them to something special.

So here are some Christmas presents he *might* not hate;

If the man that you're buying for is a film fan, this 100 Movies Scratch Off Poster* from Prezzybox is a great idea. Not only does it give them ideas for movies to watch in the future but it's also a fun way to keep track of the classics that they've seen. I also find that movies or DVDs are a pretty fail safe present idea, especially if they've always wanted to see something or missed a particular movie at the cinema. These are a few that I'd easily recommend. My Dad also raves about the Roger Waters live DVD as a big fan of him and Pink Floyd in general.

If your Dad, boyfriend/husband, brother, Grandad or male friend is a fan of cars, motorbikes or any kind of automobile, old or new, then my Dad has just the gift idea for them. Whether they have fond memories of a car from their past, would love to own a supercar or motorbike or are glued to their car TV programmes, this is the kind of gift that they would cherish and hang with pride. He's currently taking commissions but has plenty of prints to choose from, all ready to go. You can see more of his work over on his Twitter, where he's @georgecochrane1 and be sure to let him know that I sent you.

If you're really not sure what to get one of the men in your life, I always recommend visiting the likes of Debenhams  or John Lewis where you can scope out the latest and greatest aftershaves, take a trip to the gifting section where you see some of the classic and current card and board games (I can't recommend the likes of Pointless or Catchphrase for playing on Boxing Day enough) and you can even physically feel some of the gifts before ordering them online. I picked up the Mr & Mrs Pocket Edition from Debenhams in St. Enoch. The one aftershave that really caught my eye or should I say my nose this year is the new YSL Y scent. Escentual have currently got it promotion making the hefty 100ml bottle just £61 instead of £72 or you can pick up the gift set, which includes a 60ml and travel 10ml bottle for just £45.

And if you've got your other half into popping on a sheet mask whilst watching the football this one* from Bandito is a fun way to let them have a face mask of their own. It also makes for the perfect stocking filler idea too.

The men in my life are also always listening to their music or the football so a pair of these Brainwavz BLU-100 Bluetooth Earphones* would certainly go down well with them. They can say goodbye to tangled earphone wires and crazy long cables with these.

And how good are these bits from Scribbler?! They have plenty of fantastic alternative Christmas cards and lots of pop culture references for the men in your life. I mean, this notebook might just be the most appropriate gift for many a male.

I'm also a big fan of investing in experiences rather than things, as you will have seen this year as I've been saving my money to put towards trips and experiences when I'm there rather than buying another eyeshadow palette that I don't necessarily need. A great experience idea for the men in your life that you'll also want to get involved in is Go Ape.
