Blogmas: Christmas Gift Guide For Him

I don't know about you guys, but the men in my life can be some of the hardest people to buy for. I have to spend the year listening into conversations and making notes to pick out presents I know they will love. Without this, I am generally stumped. So, to create this post, I have reflected on some of the presents I have bought in the past for my male family members. So whoever it is, Partner, Dad, Uncle, Brother...I hope I can give you some inspiration. 
Watches can be more of a spendy purchase, but they can be a gift your recipient will keep for year after year. Watches can sometimes be a very personal thing to buy for someone so it can be difficult to get the present exactly right. But, you can make sure you get a gift receipt so the recipient can exchange the watch if they wish. This might sound awful to most, but I would much prefer someone to tell me they didn't like a present, rather than keeping it and never wearing it. 

I know boxers and socks are probably a guy's worst nightmare. But they are a useful present to get right? So, why not make this present a bit more luxury by buying a more expensive brand of underwear that they might not normally buy themselves. 

I'm really into card holders at the minute, for both men and women. I think this would make a really great alternative to a wallet for the man in your life. With men, I find they generally keep money in their pockets. So a card holder would be a perfect, more slimline, alternative to a wallet. 

You cannot go wrong with a fragrance for anyone for Christmas. Fragrance is all about personal preference so this might require more detective work. I like to look at the scents they already have to see what types of fragrance they generally reach for. Maybe if you are looking for an aftershave for your partner, it might be nice for you to pick out something you like and you also think he will like. This way you know your man is going to be smelling great. 
Men's skincare is so underrated. I'm not saying the men in my life have an extensive skincare regime like mine, but it definitely seems to be that more men and trying to take better care of their skin. This Clinique set is a really simple starter set for any man looking to up their skincare routine. I like how the products are all really usable, not like some of the strange shaving products you always seem to get in men's gift sets.

There is nothing better than a bit of a silly present for your Brother or Dad. I absolutely love the idea of growing your own Christmas tree. Imagine growing the tree that you can then have up in your living room for Christmas. I mean, I'm not sure how well this will actually work, but it's such a great and fun idea. 

Christmas just isn't Christmas without buying a male family member a jumper. So, if it's going to be done anyway, make it a jumper they will love and actually want to wear. I really love the menswear in All Saints, this jumper is gorgeous and looks so cozy. I also saw some really good value cashmere jumpers on John Lewis.
