I had such a great reaction to my Christmas Gift Guide video so thank you for all your comments. I did notice though, that a lot of people asked if I was going to do a men's gift guide. So I've whipped together a small selection of gifts that would be appropriate for 'him'. Now we're not a family that gives huge Christmas presents and buying for guys is hard enough on birthdays, but here are some bits that I would personally buy for my boyfriend, so maybe yours will like them too?
I'm only now getting into coffee but Rich is a huge fan. I recently bought him this book and he loves it! It also means that we can now spend our weekends exploring new parts of London in search for "that amazing coffee place from the book".
Every guy has their own smell, so why not buy them a top up of their favourite fragrance? One of my favourite guy smells is this one from Chanel… mmm, it's so good.
Everyone needs gloves in the winter and these ones from Muji are perfect because you don't need to take them off to use your phone. The fine threads of metal sewn into the fingertips means you can use your iPhone without sacrificing the warmth of your gloves!
My 'him' has an unhealthy addiction to chocolate and I once recall buying a tub of Nutella to use in a blog post and a day later when I went to use it, it was half empty with visible spoon marks on show! This cute little book shows you different ways you can use Nutella in recipes… Hopefully he'll use me to test out his cooking skills!
Now this is an area I'm definitely not an expert in, but I don't think I have enough fingers to count the times my dad, boyfriend or brother in law have purchased a remote control helicopter. I don't know what it is, but they love them! This one is a bit different as it's a quadcopter ~ooooh~ so it makes an extra special Christmas gift. Not only is it fun but it'll keep them busy on Christmas day! Just don't forget the batteries otherwise you'll have a sulker to deal with…
This is unlikely to be the most popular from the bunch, but some guys genuinely do enjoy a bit of grooming. If you're one of the lucky ones who's fella takes time to groom or if you really want to drop a hint that they need to, then this is the kit for him.
Anyone else's boyfriend obsessed with bikes, running, swimming and basically anything triathlon related? If so, Wiggle is the site you need to visit. They have everything you could possibly need, from helmets to cycling shorts (with the bum padding that makes me LOL). The multi tool is apparently "an essential" and will save you in any situation. It looks complicated to me but what do I know!
So there it is, my guide to what to buy him this year for Christmas. Hopefully there's something on there that you think your 'him' will like. If you haven't yet seen my Christmas Gift Guide video you can watch it here.
