Gift Guide: For the Man in Your Life

Gift Guide: For the Man in Your Life

I hope you're all having a fab December so far - I have already eaten all the mince pies and drank all the mulled wine - and I'm not even sorry. It's the most wonderful time of the year, as they say. So, I'm making the most of it.

You might have already seen my Gift Guide: For the Woman in Your Life which I posted last week. So, to keep things fair, I've also created this Christmas gift guide for the, usually tricky, men in your life. Back in September, I created a gift guide post for What to Buy a Dad Who Has Everything. So, this might help you if you're struggling with ideas for your Dad. In this post, I want to broaden the gift guide to other men you might have in your lives - brothers, boyfriends and uncles alike.

Gift Guide: For the Man in Your Life

I find men incredibly hard to buy for. So, being single this Christmas fills me with joy, as I know I only have my Dad struggle to find a present for. With present giving, I find it really helpful to really listen to conversations for present ideas. They might drop in that their mate has got the new FIFA game and they'd really like it too, or they could be complaining about their broken/old wallet. I really love this Ted Baker one. You'd be surprised how many present ideas you can find just in conversations.

If your man is into gadgets, and you've got the budget, an Apple Watch would go down very well on Christmas morning. Also, a really decent pair of headphones would be great for any music lovers. I have heard really good things about the Beats Wireless ones. For fitness fans, you cant go wrong with a Fitbit. They have a whole host of watches, from really simple activity trackers. To ones that track your heart rate and have GPS tracking. I have the Charge 2 myself and I absolutely love it.

It wouldn't be a true Christmas gift guide if it didn't include some socks and PJs. I get that some people hate this as a gift. But actually, Christmas can be a time to buy people something they maybe wouldnt ordinarily buy for themselves. So, take socks to another level with these cashmere socks from Falke or some more expensive loungewear/PJs like these Calvin Klein joggers or the classic Adidas three stripe tracksuit bottoms.

Food and drink is always a sure-fire gift for men of any age. If you're looking to be spendy, a really good bottle of alcohol/spirit is a gift sure to impress. Make sure to find out their favourite drink and go from there. Less spendy, but still amazing, are the Gins from Edinburgh Gin. I'm not a Gin lover, but even I really liked the rhubarb and ginger one. Mixing food and drink into one is the Charbonnel et Walker whisky truffles. This would make a really luxurious treat for your loved one - also you can pinch one and have a taste too!

Gift Guide: For the Man in Your Life

I said it at the beginning, but I really do think listening to conversations is the absolute best way to ensure that you are buying the best presents for your loved ones. I keep a track of them year round in the notes on my phone. Very organised, I know - but I am so thankful for it when it comes to Christmas and Birthdays. Please let me know if you have any other gift ideas.  Find me in the comments, or on Instagram and Twitter.
Love, Kate xx
