Gifts for mum – check! For your sister – check! For your best friend – check!
But what about the special men in your life? Men are notoriously tricky to buy for and searching for a gift for your husband, brother, dad, or nephew can be enough to take all the festive fun out of Christmas shopping.
It feels like you can spend hours negotiating the hustle and bustle of the local shopping centre, or browsing hundreds of websites online and still come back empty handed. You would think that having so much choice would make it easier to pick the perfect gift, right?
Well, if you’re looking for inspiration this Christmas, let us make things easier for you! Here’s our guide of the top five timeless gift ideas that every man in your life will love.
- Flash the cash with a new wallet
Have you had enough of the £3 Velcro wallet he’s been sporting for the last five years? This Christmas choose him something smart, unique and understated to add a touch of class to his pocket. Or if he’s far too modern to be carrying cash around these days, choose a slim-line and practical card holder of equally elegant design. Check the full range at Wallet King.
- Keep it smart with your choice of tie
While we all love to see the men in our lives dressed in novelty Christmas jumpers and socks, these aren’t the most exciting gifts and let’s face it, you can only where them once a year (providing you can convince them to continue wearing the same flashing Rudolph jumper every year).
But whether you’re a professional that dresses smart every day, or someone who only occasionally dons their best suit for important events – you can’t beat a classic tie. Whether you choose to keep it simple, go bold with bright colours or make a statement with an interesting floral design, it’s a staple part of any man’s wardrobe. So why not check out the full range at MrsBowTie.com.
- Looking for a timeless classic Watch?
Buying accessories for the men in your life can be tricky, but if there’s one thing we know, it’s that you can’t go wrong with a watch! Whether you’re on the market for an everyday classic like a Casio, or a luxury timepiece like Armani or Rotary, a watch is a gift that can be treasured for years. And what better place to find one than the leading retailer for brand name watches browse the full collection at Watch Shop.
- Keep them feeling fresh with fragrance
Not something we always consider buying for ourselves, a carefully selected aftershave can be the perfect way to show the men in your life that you care this Christmas. And no, we’re not talking about a traditional bottle of Old Spice – unless he’s into that kind of thing!
From Diesel to Davidoff, there’s a fragrance for every man that is sure to have them feeling like a regular James Bond. Either that, or just leave them feeling (and smelling) fresh. Either way, you can’t go wrong.
- Enjoy a vintage tipple of whiskey
Nothing says relaxation and cold, cosy winter nights in like a quality bottle of whiskey. Scottish, Irish, Japanese or American there’s plenty of world whiskeys to choose from, each with its own unique charm.
Whiskey not their thing? That’s OK, you can also choose from a range of craft beers, elegant wines or award-winning gins from Master of Malt. Whether you’re enjoying a glass of wine with dinner, or a beer on Christmas day, there’s a drink for every occasion.
