Christmas Gift Ideas For Him

With Christmas just over a month away, today I’m turning my attention to gifts for the man in your life. Notoriously hard to buy for (they don’t want anything, or need anything is the usual answer when you ask them.) it is very easy to turn to the usual suspects of socks, beer and pants.

So this guide will hopefully throw a few more things into your path, things that may just delight on Christmas morning.

Nuasan Daily Kit Care

For sports lovers, an ideal gift is the Nuasan Daily Kit Care which is ideal to be kept in your gym bag, or used as a wind down after team sports.

Nuasan’s range of natural skincare products offers so many benefits, making it an ideal gift. The brand is sustainable, and also vegan, which makes it an ideal gift idea for someone who is actively trying to be conscious in their choices. One of their most popular kits this Winter is the Daily Kit Care option. This includes their popular Active Body Wash and Active Body Moisturiser, making this a great top to toe pamper kit.

Nuasan kits are beautifully packaged, making them a great gift idea for the sporty folk in your life.

A Personalised Towel From Vistaprint

If your man likes to go to the gym or swimming, a personalised towel from Vistaprint could be a brilliant gift idea. Easy to create, you simply upload your image and your message, these towels are good quality and can be a totally unique gift.

I have created a towel for my son who is a football fan, supporting West Bromwich Albion. I took a photograph of a poster that has one of the clubs main songs/chants on and had this transferred to the towel. I love the fact this is something that no one else will have, making it a truly special gift.

The Gyllenhaal Mule Slippers From Bedroom Athletics

Slippers are a great idea for men of all ages, particularly during Winter when the mornings are cold, so we want to step right into our slippers when we get up in the mornings. Bedroom Athletics have a wide range of slippers in styles that range from a full shoe shape to slip on mules.

The Gyllenhaal Mules are made from snow-tipped Sherpa fleece so they’re super soft and great for indoor or outdoor wear. They have a self-colour lined footbed with high-density memory foam cushioning, plus a non-slip branded durable sole. They come in Washed Peacoat Navy, Washed Black and Washed Dark Chocolate. Priced at just £20. These are a great idea for a man who thinks he wouldn’t wear slippers, but will actually change their mind the minute they put them on!

Books From Welbeck Publishing

A good book, whether it be fiction or non fiction, is a great Christmas gift idea. You can personalise it by adding a handwritten message to your loved one, and it gives the recipient something to read during those duller moments of Christmas day, the lull between Christmas dinner and the evening buffet.

Welbeck Publishing have some amazing books this season, that range from tomes about Rock and Roll royalty, to highly entertaining thrillers.

Paul McCartney: The Stories Behind the Classic Songs

This is a beautiful hardback book filled with colour and black and white images that tells the story behind the songs of all Paul McCartney’s music after The Beatles. This includes his early solo stuff, the award winning Wings songs, and then later solo work right up to the present day.

For fans of Macca, this is a must as it has interesting, little known snippets, the public and professional opinions of some of his best known songs and just a perfect way to dive into some pretty incredible music.

England:The Official History

And then we have one for the football fans. After one of the most successful years in English football since 1966, and with Gareth Southgate just signing a new contract, England: The Official History is a timely gift for someone who is counting the days to Quatar. The book also takes a look at the England Women’s team, and some of their most successful and well known players, acknowledging the growing importance of the women’s game.

The book is frankly a bible for English football, a huge tome, filled with information and iconic photography of some of the greatest names in the sport, Alf Ramsey, Bobby Charlton, Gary Lineker, Hope Powell, David Beckham, Steph Houghton and Harry Kane.

The book charts the highs (and lows) of the England national teams and the men and women who’ve worn the Three Lions with pride. Each chapter delves into a specific era, covering key figures, famous and infamous matches, and the evolution of football over the course of more than a century and a half.

Ice Coven by Max Seeck

A cool and violent thriller with a twisted edge, Ice Coven by Max Seeck is a chilling new Scandinavian thriller from a New York Times bestselling author.

Are you ready for the darkest case of Jessica Niemi’s career?

A young woman’s corpse washes up on a near-frozen beach.

Then, two famous Instagram influencers go missing.

All three have ties to a cult, famous for their cruel and violent worship.

But before Jessica can save the girls, an old enemy emerges and threatens to destroy her.

Soon, she is hunting for much more than just the truth . . .

Ice Coven is the perfect book to curl up with when the weather is bad, and you are in front of a lovely warm fire with a hot drink in your hand.

Writing Gifts From Pen Heaven

If your loved one also loves to write – whether it be letters, lists or a journal, then a gift from luxurious writing brand Pen Heaven is a must. This year they once again have a stunning collection of pens and pencils, along with writing books, pads and diaries of the highest quality.

My picks this year include the Parker IM Last Frontier Special Edition Polar Ballpoint Pen, a stunning looking pen that also commemorates our journeys into the wild and unknown.

Designed to praise Mankind’s endless determination and motivation to discover the unknown, the Parker IM Last Frontier Special Edition Polar ballpoint pen reflects the icy tundra’s of the Arctic and the few intrepid explorers whom have pushed themselves beyond their limits to venture there. Pale metallic blue lacquer fades to silver, and is completed with an etched pattern inspired by Arctic exploration. 

I would team this particular pen with one of the iconic Leuchtturm1917 Medium Hard Cover Notebook in the denim blue. This is perfect for notes of all kind, with lined pages, and an elastic style fastening in case you have any loose items that you keep in your notebook.
