Christmas Gift Ideas For Men

I don't know about you but I always struggle when it comes to buying gifts for the men in my life at Christmas time. They never ask for anything and finding something that I know they will like and that is a bit different from the usual ideas such as gift sets, socks and slippers can prove difficult at times. So I have put together a gift guide filled with some ideas that you may find useful.

the dining out gift card christmas gift idea

1.) Restaurant Voucher

I love the ideas of a restaurant voucher as it something that they can use in their own time and let's be honest who doesn't like a free meal? The Dining Out Card is ideal for a Christmas gift as it can be used in so many different, well-known restaurants such as Toby Carvery, Sizzling Pubs, Harvester, Stonehouse Pizza and carvery and Miller and Carter to name just a few. We are actually planning on buying a few of these vouchers ourselves to give to family members this Christmas so they can enjoy a meal out in the new year. I have seen them available to buy in Boots and so many other places that sell gift cards. 

2.) Whisky Christmas Bauble

This beautifully presented Whisky Bauble from The Lake Distillery in the Lake District is a great gift idea. It is a clear plastic bauble filled with 20cl of Whisky and comes packaged in a box, ideal for wrapping as a gift, popping in a Christmas stocking or hanging on the Christmas tree as a surprise gift. You can buy from www.findmeagift.co.uk priced at £19.95.

3.) DVD Boxset

A DVD boxset of favourite tv shows is sure to be a hit as it is a gift that can be enjoyed time and time again. The BBC has some right classic shows that will keep the men (or women) in your life entertained this festive season. I know my dad will enjoy The Two Ronnies box set which contains all 93 episodes over 27 discs, including all four Christmas specials and Corbett's 2010 'One Ronnie' episode. Available to buy now from Amazon. 

4.) Razor

The Mach3 Razor from Gillette is a razor both my dad and partner use and swear by and they have a limited edition set out in time for Christmas. Presented in a gift box the razor comes with a handy little stand to store it in, perfect for on a bathroom shelf or windowsill. You can buy the Mach3 Gillette Razor from Boots and Superdrug priced at £17.99, Boots also have a special gift set which includes the razor, blades and shaving gel too. 

5.) Book

Queen fans will enjoy the new book Bohemian Rhapsody The Official Book of the Movie by Owen Williams. The book is paperback and beautifully presented with photos and behind the scenes knowledge. If you have seen the movie then you really need to read this book, I am sure any Queen fan will enjoy this at Christmas. Available to buy from Amazon and bookstores now priced at £20. 

6.) Box Of Favours

I love the idea behind this cute little box, the box is filled with 15 favour cards which are basically just like I Owe You notes. 10 of them are already filled in with favours such as I owe you special meal, I owe you breakfast in bed etc. The other five cards are blank so you can add your own favour to them. They are beautifully presented and would make a great stocking filler gift for a partner or friend. They are available to buy on Amazon priced at £9.99. 

7.) Il Gusto Gift

If you have visited Newcastle's Eldon Square at Christmas time then I am sure you have seen the Il Gusto pop-up stand. They sell a range of alcoholic gifts and oils that you can present in a beautiful bottle, making them a unique and lovely gift to give this festive season. You can buy from the pop-up store or online at www.ilgusto.com or Amazon. We were sent this lovely Amaretto Disaronno in a Christmas tree bottle £15.50 and it is such a unique gift idea and prices start at just £6. 

8.) Hat

Knitted hats make such a practical gift but they are so useful at this time of year and are something my partner never buys for himself. This blue knitted hat from Buff is ideal for wearing on outdoor adventures or cold winter mornings on your way to work. Priced at £27.97 it is sure to keep him warm and cosy this winter.
