Gifts for him
Gifts for him
In the second blog post in our series of gift guides for Christmas 2023, we're tackling all things men. This often feels like a daunting task for many of us, as so many men can feel impossibly hard to buy for. Sound familiar? Yes, we thought that might be the case. So perhaps this gift guide could provide a bit of inspiration if nothing else. From funky stocking fillers to a special gift and more, we have hopefully got you covered for he who is impossible to buy for.
1. A Go La La soap
These hilariously silly soaps are so often a cause for giggling in the shop, amongst pretty much everyone including men. In fact, they even won gift of the year last year. Some of the outrageously cheeky sayings include things like knob job, soapy tit wank, sweaty bollocks, and so many more including some new festive ones. Initially bought for this brilliant packaging, they are often loved for their great quality, vegan soaps that smell fabulous too.
2. A Keith Brymer Jones mug
If you're not already aware, Keith Brymer Jones is one of the judges on the Great Pottery Throwdown. But he also known for his own pottery company that creates some gorgeous pieces, including brilliant mugs which we love. But why buy one for the man in you life? Because he too, creates some slightly outrageous and brilliant pieces. Take the 'wanker' mug, for example, or the 'grumpy' or 'knobhead' ones - what a great gift for a partner, brother or dad (or all of them). But you can also play it a bit more safe and go for something like 'dog lover'. It's also worth mentioning that they're just a brilliantly practical mug too.
Yes, this one might seem a bit cliche, but it's for a good reason because there are some fabulous socks available nowadays. For example, we adore the men's Powder socks for their vibrant and quirky designs that we're sure the man in your life won't already have. Or for a festive theme, we've just got some new Christmas socks in for men too, which are also available in smaller sizes for women, and there's even kids ones so the whole family can match.
4. A good game
Feel the thrill of a racetrack with the 'host your own horse racing night' game, allow them to fulfill the role of host in our 'host your own game show' game, or get lost in a murder mystery or escape room game. Whatever it might be, our selection of games and trivias are a full-proof gift this Christmas.
5. A cook book
Because sometimes all need some inspiration for meal times right? Or maybe the man in your life is just a keen cook. Either way, a new book is always a great go-to for a gift. A firm favourite so far has been the Mediterranean inspired Tapas cookbook, or the very apt Air Fryer cookbook. Or perhaps you could combine two of his favourite hobbies and by him the 'cooking with beer' book.
Hopefully these bits can give you some inspiration, but if not then fear not, the list goes on. Emma Bridgewater mugs are always a special gift, or stationery for the man always making notes. Chilly's bottles and coffee cups are always a practical and handy gift. Or, if you want to stick to a fun theme then some of the Jellycats are great and can suit various hobbies such as their sport theme.
