Gift Guide For A Man, By A Man

It’s the time of the year when I roll out my gift guide for any man you may be getting a present for. Yes, I am a man so I have basically made a list of things I’d like as a man, plus some ideas from men I know. As ever it covers a wide price range from stocking filler to main gift, and many topics. Have a look . . .

chatty feet xmas

Chatty Feet Socks – From £7.50

Chatty Feet make excellent fun socks, they also have very unique designs. I can personally vouch for their comfort and durability as I have a few pairs. They also do the gift box in the pic for £30.

bottle opener

Key Ring Bottle Opener – £7.50

Simple really, it opens beer bottles, goes on a key ring, means you never need to hunt for a bottle opener again.


Muji Umbrella – £9.95

British weather, sometimes sunny, sometimes cold, always only seconds away from rain. I have this umbrella in black and it’s chic, durable, and used all the time. It might seem overly practical, but at least once a week the person you give it to will thank you to the heavens.

book suze

P Is For Peleton by Suze Clemitson & Mark Fairhurst- £10.99

Cycling is a growing sport, and this book is perfect for fans new and old. It’s also written by one of my fave twitterati who writes beautifully.

Doctor Who Christmas Jumper £29.99

Doctor Who fan, sorted.


Paxtons Cheese Collection – £45

Cheese, the most wonderful thing in the world from a place I used to go specifically to buy cheese before being vegan. Seriously its worth the visit to the shop. This is just one of many hampers, and you know the best thing about this, they’ll have to share it with you, om nom nom.


Pall Mall Barbers Wet Shave – £50

I’ve dropped in a few times since my first experience of their traditional wet shave. There is no better shave than this with the traditional razor. It’s also a great one off experience for a loved one. Check the product range as they are outstanding as well.

Sports Philosophy Long Sleeve Shirt – £58

A great label making stylish, chic gym wear. They are also fighting child labour. What better way to celebrate the Christmas season than with an outstanding gift that will help change lives.

art pass

National Art Pass – £60 For A Year Or £45 on DD

If he likes art, he’ll love the Art Pass, over 200 free galleries, and 50% off many paid exhibitions as just some of the card features. Make his hobby cheaper and he’ll love you more than he loves Monet.

prendas xmas

Prendas Molteni Zip Top – £69.95

A fab replica of an iconic item, keeping that special someone stylish all winter.


Emma J Shipley Star Wars Pocket Square – £70

One of my fave designers has teamed up with the Star Wars gang to create beautiful things, this pocket square is one of many featuring the hand crafted art of Emma J Shipley, a name you’ll want to remember.

For the motorsport fan, Ginetta have been racing since 1958 and now have an excellent range of products to go with it. The seat buckle style of the bag lends the motorsport edge in understated style.
