Are you wondering what to get for your man for Christmas? This list of eight Christmas gifts he will love will help you find the perfect gift.
Men, they are really difficult to buy gifts for. They never seem to drop a hint about what they would like. There are only so many pairs of socks they can wear. Having recently put together a list of fourteen Christmas gifts that she will love, I now have some inspiration for gifts for men. Whether you are buying for your husband, father or granddad there is bound to be something perfect for them.
Christmas gifts he will love
- Stocking Fillers
- Gifts for the sports lover
- Keeping them looking smart
- For the man who loves reading
- The outdoors lover
- For the gardening expert
Hallmakr have a range of mini plush toys that make a perfect stocking filler. They are also ideal for pocket money presents for kids to get their dad. The cute range has various collections like Star Wars, Marvel, Peanuts and Snoopy, The Wizard of Oz, DC Comics and Scooby-Doo. Ideal for sitting on a desk to make him smile. I love the Peanuts characters, Snoopy has always been a favourite.
If you want something more festive why not get Santa or Rudolph? There is also a new Christmas Edition Mickey and Minnie Mouse which are limited editions. They may be a collectors item in the future.

A print from Art of Football
Is your bloke a football lover? Do you lose the television whenever there is a match on? A gift from Art of Football will make his day. Art of Football creates hand-crafted designs which aim to emulate the energy, passion and euphoria inspired by the magical kick of a football. Whether you choose a t-shirt of a print you know that there is only a limited number of each design. This makes them exclusive and original. Every order is gift wrapped and in a hand painted box. The wrapping is pretty special. Football designs make it unique. Choose a gift from the team he supports to make his day.
Every item has a story behind it. The Albert chip print (RRP £9.99) is from the match where Newcastle won 5-0 against Manchester United. It is a story Toon fans still tell today and this print shows the goal from Philippe Albert. Any Newcastle United fan would love it.
Bioflow Sports Wristband
Bioflow is a magnetic therapy company. The Bioflow sports wristband contains a central recovery reverse polarity magnet inside a silicon wristband. The idea is that blood cells passing under the wristband experience an agitating effect. This aids recovery and enhances performance. The wristband is also has a positive effect on arthritis sufferers helping them with the pain. My husband has been trying it out and said it has made a difference. He is feeling less pain in this cold weather than he would normally.
Magnetic therapy is an alternative therapy and while it is hard to prove it works scientifically they have a large number of positive reviews. The wristbands come in a wide range of colours and look smart and stylish. If you have a sports lover in your life I am sure they will be happy with one of these.
The Bioflow sports wristband is RRP £25 and available in a wide range of colours.

The Personal Barber – Male Grooming Subscription Box
Subscription boxes are a big thing these days and this male grooming subscription box from The Personal Barber is a interesting idea. If your man loves the traditional razor and brush style of shaving or would like to try it this would make a great gift.
The Personal Barber subscription box is available as a one off for £24.95. Longer subscriptions are cheaper, six months is £91.80 or twelve months is £174.64. Boxes are delivered every six weeks making a total of eight boxes a year. Each box features a different selection of shaving goodies including 10 blades, shaving soap or cream and pre or post shaving goodies.
The Personal Barber box is a sturdy cardboard box and the contents are well protected with paper to keep them safe. Opening the black tissue paper reveals the shaving goodies. This sample box contains the following:
- Two cards describing the contents as well as information on how to get a good shave and how to care for your razor.
- The Personal Barber Double Edge Safety Razor – perfect for the beginning wet shaver.
- The Personal Barber Synthetic Hair Shaving Brush
- Delicate Owl Simply Lavender Shaving Soap – A British brand who have won awards for their ethical vegan soaps. This soap has a lovely lavender aroma.
- Bee Cosmetics After Shave Balm – A small family run business from West Sussex who create natural skincare products from their 35 beehives. This is a moisturising balm with a wonderful scent.
- Solid Cologne UK Felix Cologne – A new brand from London who have created this solid scent which is great for packing when travelling.

The Personal Barber subscription box is a great way to discover new brands that you may not have heard of. I like the fact that many of these brands are newer British brands.
Cufflinks from Dobell Menswear
Cufflinks are one of those things that a man will always need at some point in his life. If he attends a formal event then a pair of cufflinks is a necessity. Not only do they look nice but dress shirts often do not have buttons. Cufflinks are needed to hold the sleeves together. The trouble is that often when he finds he needs a pair of cufflinks there are none available.
Dobell menswear have a wide range of accessories for men including a large selection of cufflinks. I love these compass cufflinks. Not only do they look smart they actually work. This ensures that he will never get lost as well as adding a touch of James Bond style to his outfit. These are RRP: £19.99
Eyejusters reading glasses
As you get older it gets harder to read. You may find that you are having to hold your book at arms length to see the pages. If you are already short sighted you may find you need to remove your glasses to read. If you know someone who needs reading glasses Eyejusters reading glasses make an ideal gift.
Invented and manufactured in Britain, these are adjustable reading glasses. They are a clever idea. You don’t need to know the wearers prescription. The lenses are adjustable with a little dial. This makes the lenses slide until you can see correctly. You can adjust each lens separately which is perfect as most people have different eye strengths.
Eyejusters are RRP £69 or £79. Avaiable from the Eyejusters website they come in 17 different sizes and colours which are unisex.
Everyone is familiar with Zippo lighters. This iconic brand make windproof lighters that are excellent for lighting fires outdoors. Did you know that Zippo also do a lifestyle range that includes hand warmers, leather wallets and hip flasks? I think the hip flask would be a perfect gift for any outdoors lover. It is the perfect shape for carrying in the pocket with a secure lid. It would also make an ideal stocking filler.
Buy online on the zippo website RRP £17.95
Gtech ST20 Cordless Grass Trimmer
Fortunately in the winter the grass stops growing. In the spring and summer it is a different story. You cut the grass and two days later it needs cutting again. Recently I have been trying out the Gtech ST20 Cordless Grass Trimmer which makes light work of the lawn. If your lawn has walls or flowerbeds round the edges this grass trimmer will keep them looking tidy. It is easy to use and lightweight. The fact that it is cordless makes it so much easier to use.
Available from the Gtech website RRP £99.00
