We are now less than three weeks away from the big day, and I’m guessing those presents are now starting to mount up. But if you are still struggling, maybe to find a gift for a certain person, then I have a few more ideas up my sleeve.
These are mainly aimed at the men in your life, although a rather adorable, and collectable, charm bracelet has also made it’s way into the mix. Hopefully something will be helpful as you make your way through your gift list.
Liverpool FC x Nivea Advent Calendar
Now I know this is a few days late for an advent calendar, but if you have a Liverpool fan in your family, this is one hell of an awesome gift. The limited edition calendar is a collaboration between Liverpool FC and skincare brand Nivea, and it is brilliant for boys of all ages.
The exclusive advent calendar features a mix of 12 travel-friendly and full size NIVEA Men products, from classics including NIVEA Men Crème to NIVEA Men Energy Shower Gel, NIVEA Men Deep Face Mask and NIVEA Men Stubble Balm, as well as 12 collectable pieces of LFC merchandise.
With only 1,000 Advent Calendars in distribution, you’ll need to be quick to get your hands on it! It is currently available online from the Liverpool FC store.
A Personalised Mug From Not Another Bunch Of Flowers
Personalised presents are always popular, and work for pretty much everyone, from a teacher to a parent. ‘Not Another Bunch of Flowers’ is a site that offers just that, gift ideas that are a level above just a bunch of blooms.
This Christmas they have put together a lovely group of items that can be personalised, ranging from Christmas Eve boxes and sacks, to mugs, aprons and cushions.
My pick is the gorgeous reindeer mug which has a sleek elegant design, but with the cutest of prints on the front. This would work as a gift for everyone, and comes boxed. You can also add extras like a Belgian Chocolate Mug Brownie Mix or Hot Chocolate Spoon (Milk + A Cookie) for £2.95.
A Beard Kit From The Bluebeards Revenge
Whether it is a gift for a partner with a hipster beard, or your dad who has a style more akin to a geography teacher, beard grooming is now big news and the Beard Kit from The Bluebeards Revenge is a really nice present idea.
Coming beautifully boxed, the kit comprises of a classic blend beard oil and a great quality travel beard brush for all those beard emergencies when you are out and about.
The kit costs £23.99 and is a stylish idea for the bloke who cares about his personal grooming and loves to keep that beard in tip top condition.
Grooming Products From Raw Naturals
Raw Naturals is a new men’s grooming range from Sweden, that is currently available exclusively in Superdrug. It’s a natural, stylish range of body, skin and beard care products for men that is the brainchild of 3 Alpine skiers from Sweden who were looking for a high-performance moisturiser that would only need to be applied once and see them through a full day on the cold, windswept slopes!
The logic is that if the products work in the extreme temperatures of Sweden, they will work anywhere. Each formula combines caring ingredients of vegetable origin with natural oils from oats, coconut and olives, as well as natural honey extracts.
The products are beautifully packaged and would look good on any bathroom shelf, and are also reasonably priced with all products in the range costing under £15. The key pick must be the Pale Ale shower gel, which smells divine and would certainly appeal to my dad.
Film Memorabilia From Fanattik
Fanattik is a dream online destination for lovers of cult movies. It stocks a range of limited-edition movie merchandise from iconic retro films such as Alien, Jurassic Park, Jaws, Back to the Future and Rambo. Their Gift range suits all budgets, from art prints and coins to bottle openers and playing cards.
Their range is the perfect solution for what to buy the movie geek, or someone just obsessed with one film in particular. The items are diverse, interesting and of fabulous quality, and would definitely make someone’s day on Christmas morning. My key picks are from a couple of my faves, ‘Back to the Future’ and ‘Alien’, which is, aptly, celebrating it’s 40th birthday this year.
Another timely gift idea is the ET jewellery. With the alien now making a comeback as part of a Sky Christmas ad, it is sure to attract a new audience, and the charm bracelet and necklace are just lovely, and cost less than £15. The bracelet is officially licensed by Universal Studios, features three charms and is limited to only 9,995 worldwide with an individually number on the reverse. This is such a special gift,
A Wallet From Walletking
Walletking is a one stop shop for all things purse, wallet, keyring, card holder, passport holder etc, etc. Stocking a wide range of brands including Greenburry and Visconti, and wallets and purses of all shapes and sizes, it is a great website to visit this Christmas if you are looking for a stylish or practical gift idea.
I love the range of quality leather wallets, which are so much more hard wearing than their synthetic rivals and only look better as they age, the Visconti one below is a really stylish piece.
