It’s all about the guys in your life in today’s Christmas Gift Guide. Are you stuck on what to buy your other half, brother, dad or uncle for Christmas – Hopefully I’ve got a few ideas which may help you. Men can be rather hard to buy for. Especially when they don’t tell you what they want. Dad, I’m looking at you. I’m not going to lie, this Gift Guide is mainly Food, Alcohol and Aftershave but you can’t really go wrong with that combo, right?
First up, we have some items from North Face* which is perfect for the slightly adventurous Dad or just someone who wants the best when it comes to wrapping up this winter. The Men’s North Face gloves are from Black’s and whilst they are slightly pricey at £40 they are top of the range with Etip™ touch screen compatibility and are even 100% windproof. In addition to the gloves, we have the men’s North Face beanie hat in navy which actually would be a really great gift for any man in your life. I’m already making plans to “borrow” this from my boyfriend as I’m sure even us girls could rock the North Face Beanie. I also rather love it in grey too.
It wouldn’t be a gift guide without the mention of some sort of aftershave or perfume. The Bentley Momentum Unlimited Aftershave* is a brand new scent out for 2018. It’s actually a really interesting scent as it’s very different and unique with crisp fruit top notes and leather as it’s base note. I’m no expert when it comes to men’s scents but I really like this! You can also be in with a chance to win a 100ml bottle very soon, so keep your eyes out for that.
Food always goes down well with men. So does lager. Ross & Ross have put together their very own Merry Man Box* for this Christmas. They have partnered with some of the best suppliers in The Cotswolds to bring out this little hamper including a premium Cotswold Lager, British Charcuterie Original Salami, Mr Trotter’s Great British Original Crackling and included their very own Smoked Apple Chutney.
Men like to be pampered too. I’m sure it’s not just my boyfriend that steals most of my skincare routine. Now is a perfect time, to stock up on some favourites and give them their own supply. I’ve put a few skincare suggestions down below but Fat Face has got some really lovely products out this festive season for the man in your life. From socks, travel mugs to grooming sets including Beard Oil and Hand Repair*.
I did mention Alcohol would feature quite heavily in this guide. I know it’s not for everyone but I’ve come across some really exciting products. If you know someone who is a big fan of Whisky then they are going to love this next gift suggestion. From Find Me A Gift, the Lakes Distillery have produced and made their own Whisky Baubles* – How incredible are they?! The liquid is actually in the baubles so if you really want you can drink straight from the ornaments on your tree. These retail at £28 and you get six 5cl baubles.
Still on the topic of alcohol but moving on to Rum. The Duppy Share* is a Carribean Rum and to tell you the truth, I’ve only just come across this product recently and although, I’m not a huge fan of Rum. This is perfect drink for the festive season to enjoy as part of a Rum Punch! There are so many recipes on the website of ways to mix The Duppy Share, I think it would be a firm favourite as a gift this season.
