My husband loves this time of year as it is the time where I start asking him what sort of things he would like to include in my Men’s Christmas Gift Guide. I do always like to choose things he would like.
Christmas shopping for him can be difficult at the best of times and I often need all the help I can get!
So without further ado, here are some ideas for the men in your life this Christmas.
1) Castello di Radda 2017 | Chianti Classico DOCG from Independent Wine
My husband loves a glass of red wine so when we were offered some Castello di Radda 2017 | Chianti Classico DOCG from Independent Wine, I knew he would be keen.
This delicious wine is crafted by the legendary Beretta family at their vineyard in Radda – the very heart of the Chianti Classico region. It retails at £18.95 and bursts with flavours of red cherry, raspberry and black plum, complemented by notes of dry fruits and herbs – dry cranberry, mint and rosemary – as well as subtle aromas of mushrooms, wet stone and leather.
I might have a little taste myself, despite usually going for a white wine!
2) Whole Bean Coffee from Black Insomnia
Of course, if you have a coffee mug, you need some coffee to go in it!
I was kindly sent for my husband some of the World’s Strongest Coffee in whole bean from Black Insomnia. They have better flavour and more caffeine than any other coffee. Designed for busy parents, workaholics and those who just need to stay awake! Caramel, hazelnut, and macadamia aromas, on top of a luxurious dark chocolate flavour – high performance coffee has never tasted this good!!
This bag retails at £14.99 and is packed with 4 x the caffeine of average coffee – be more than average, with an extreme caffeine kick of 1105mg caffeine per 12oz cup. There is no acidity or bitterness. There are smooth yet strong caramel, hazelnut, and macadamia aromas. Sounds delicious and I know my husband would be keen to try on a tired morning!
3) A Print from Ink and Drop
We have many prints in our house and they really do enhance the decor and give a personalised touch to the house. I was thrilled to be contacted by Ink and Drop to include one of their prints in this gift guide.
Ink and Drop have a huge choice of quality art products for your home, office, for anywhere. You can make your own customised design or choose from vintage, altered art prints and even designs for kids. You can also get your images framed.
We chose this Henri Matisse Exhibition Museum Poster. It was framed in oak and size 30×40. For the print this retailed at £19.00. An oak frame at that size retails at £26.00.
Check Ink and Drop out for a really unique gift this Christmas.
4) Vanilla Rose Bath Salt Blend by Made by Coopers
Made By Coopers is a modern apothecary brand crafting natural products to boost and balance mental and emotional wellbeing. Life can be hectic and crazy at the best of times and these products are perfect for unwinding.
All products are:
– full of clean, nutrient rich essential oils and botanical ingredients
– free from parabens, SLS’s, sulphates, mineral oil, artificial colours and synthetic fragrances
We were kindly sent some Vanilla Rose Bath Salt Blend, which retails at £22.50. It is described as a “nourishing bath salt blend with Vanilla and Ylang Ylang essential oils to rejuvenate the skin and help you relax and unwind.”
Can’t wait to try it, if can steal from my husband!
5) Dishley Slippers from Moshulu
My husband loves slippers (yes he shows his age) so I knew he would adore these Dishley Men’s sheepskin moccasin slippers from Moshulu. These retail at £48.75 and they come in tan or navy.
Details about the product include:
- Fluffy sheepskin wool linings for extra cosy feet.
- Unique Moshulu designed tag detail.
- A classic moccasin shaped slipper in supple cow suede.
- Contrasting colour stitch detailing.
- Super grippy and hardwearing rubber sole
Moshulu is a footwear brand that started in Devon in 1997. Think quality, comfort and most important to me, colour! Boots, shoes, slippers and clothes are also stocked.
They have some amazing products so definitely worth a look.
6) Socks from Ballonet
No gift guide would be complete without some socks and we were sent a couple of pairs from Ballonet.
7) Machrie Mens Bath & Shower Gel from ARRAN Sense of Scotland
I love all the products from ARRAN Sense of Scotland. We have featured before and they honestly just smell amazing. The quality is just so good. All Aran products are proudly made in Scotland and you can find some amazing scents in soaps, hand care and fragrances.
This Christmas my husband has been sent some Machrie Mens Bath & Shower Gel which retails at £16.
The shower gel combines essential oils of sea salt, labdanum, myrrh, clary, sage, patchouli and rockrose. An awakening and refreshing fragrance, ideal for your morning shower.
8) The Gillette Labs Exfoliating Razor
My husband is a fan of shaving products and has been using Gillette for a while now.
This new Gillette Labs is the first Exfoliating Razor, so combines this and shaving at the same time. It has a premium, sleep metal handle for a lifetime guarantee. It also has a magnetic stand.
The exfoliation bar removes dirt and debris, such as dead skin cells, before the blades pass, thereby allowing for a close and accurate shave.
It is available online as above but also from Superdrug and Boots.
9) TENGA SVR in Black from TENGA
TENGA have featured in both my male and female gift guide this year and stock a variety of sexual wellness products for both men and women.
For the male guide we were sent the TENGA SVR in Black. This retails at £70.
It is a vibrating ring which is elegantly designed, yet extremely powerful. The vibrations have 5 strengths and 2 patterns. Can be used for solo use or with your partner.
Definitely looks like fun!
10) SBC Skincare – Aloe Vera Moisturising Gel
Aloe Vera Gel is so lovely and also perfect for going on holiday. We do usually take some with us, so I thought my husband would like some for Christmas!
From SBC Skincare this Aloe Vera Moisturising Gel varies in price depending on the bottle size. I was kindly sent 300ml which retails at £19.50.
Aloe Vera Moisturising Gel is a cooling and soothing gel for the face and body. The lightweight formula has a jelly-like texture that absorbs instantly, leaving skin feeling refreshed and hydrated, never greasy, making it the perfect daily moisturiser.
It is suitable for all skin types.
11) Support Centre Point – Aiming to Give Homeless Young People a Future
I was quite saddened to read that last winter, over 29,000 young people faced homelessness, with numbers expected to rise this year due to the ongoing cost of living crisis. Christmas can be very isolating and upsetting and supporting this charity can be a different twist on a Christmas gift.
Sometimes even a small gift, when it is needed most, can be a new beginning for a homeless young person. Give the greatest gift this year through Centrepoint Christmas gifts. Ranging from £10 to £1,500, any donation small or large will make a meaningful difference.
If you check the link above you can see so many options of how a gift can help. Gifts are categorised into the type of gift and in price order and you can personalise your gift.
I think my husband is going to love some of these products and I’m looking forward to wrapping some of these up for him this Christmas.
Have a good one!
