Some of the men in my life are really easy to buy presents for, others are incredibly difficult. I thought I would rack my brains and compile a list of items that I would buy them all in hope that it may give you some inspiration.
Over the next week I will be posting gift guides for her, him and her and stocking fillers. In addition to this I have a few posts reviewing all the books that I have read this year – this will be great post to get some ideas for any book lovers out there.
If you’re still stuck for ideas…

My boyfriend commutes up to London for work and so on those cold winter mornings and evenings he has to wrap up warm. Therefore one of my ideas for his Christmas presents is a new scarf. This particular scarf from Barbour for £35.95 is absolutely gorgeous and very smart for work. If this Barbour one is a little out of your budget you can get some really lovely and cheaper scarves out there. You can find a very smart reversible scarf here from Amazon for only £7.99*.
Skincare Gift-Set –
Skincare items are great for men too. My boyfriend loves the L’Oreal range for their beard care items and so if I was choosing a gift set for him I would stick with them and choose this one. He likes to pretend he doesn’t like facemasks, etc… but if I offer him one of mine then he usually accepts.
A sport related gift –
Both my dad and boyfriend are huge Tottenham fans so I usually try and get them a couple of football related Christmas presents. This year I have stumbled across these Tottenham cufflinks which are actually quite cute! They’re also only £13.49 from Amazon*. Sport-related presents can often be tacky and I don’t know about you but I don’t particularly fancy a life-size picture of a team member on my wall. These cuff links are the perfect little gift with a nod towards their favourite team.
A Jumper –
You can’t go wrong with getting someone a jumper for Christmas.
I absolutely love this jumper from Next for only £30. My boyfriend has a few of Next’s jumpers (often he gets them as a Christmas present) and they’re super comfy and really well made (apart from the one that I accidentally shrunk in the wash, however I think that’s more of a reflection on my domestic skills rather than the quality of the jumper).
A glasses Stand –
This isn’t just a present for the men in your lives, however I know my Grandad often puts his glasses down and cannot remember where e put them, therefore I thought this would be the perfect gift for him. If anyone in your life wears glasses and has a habit of forgetting where they’ve put them then this is a fabulous gift idea! I’m super careful with my glasses and don’t put them down, however even I would love this gift to put by my bedside table to keep my glasses when I’m not wearing them. It’s £29.95 from Not On The High Street.
My boyfriend hates my keys because, according to him, there are too many fussy keyrings on the chain. He’s lucky he didn’t know me back when I had mini soft toys on my keyring…
This got me thinking that he would like a simple keyring. I came across this simple keyring on Not on The High Street which allows you to include a personal message, all for £16.
Whenever we go away for the weekend my boyfriend is always forced to use his suitcase and considering he packs 1/10 of what I pack he really doesn’t need all that room. A brilliant idea for the men in your life who like to travel lightly is a holdall. I love how simple, yet stylish, this holdall from Amazon is for only £42.99*.
Other Gift Ideas:
- Tickets to a sports game – I once surprised my boyfriend with tickets to a football match. I don’t think he ever thought I would agree to go with him and so I decided to surprise him and book the tickets myself.
- Aftershave – I find that a lot of the men in my life hate spending money on new aftershaves and so Christmas is the perfect time to renew their bottles.
- Trainers – My boyfriend is obsessed with trainers as I am with coats. We’ve both agreed to be good and stop buying things that we don’t need, however Christmas is the perfect time to indulge a loved one.
Who do you find the most awkward to buy for?
