Gift guide for him!
I’m starting off the gift guide mini series of blogmas with a gift guide for him!
I always find men harder to buy for than women, whether it’s for my partner, family or friends. Never know what to get them! I have a million ideas for the women in my life, but for men?! I struggle to think of something that is price appropriate as well as a good gift for men.
So here are some gift ideas that I’ve gotten for guys over the years or that I would gift to someone now. Hopefully it will be useful for you too, and gives you some ideas!
Please let me know what you’ve been getting for people, I would LOVE to know and get some more ideas.
So let’s get started!
Gift Guide for Him
I’m so excited to be writing the gift guide for him! Whether it’s for your boyfriend, brother, dad, uncle, husband or maybe a friend, I hope this list comes in useful! Men can sometimes be really hard to buy for, but I still had fun making this gift guide!

I bought this classic coffee maker for my Dad last year, after I started using one last year. This one is the perfect size, as it makes 3 cups. But if I’m feeling like I really need it I’ll just drink it all! My dad loved this present, and as he often drinks coffee, it really was such a great fit. It’s made in Italy, and is great quality and easy to care for and clean. You can’t really go wrong with it, and for me it’s the best way to drink coffee at home. Make sure you don’t put it in the dishwasher, and you’re good to go with a perfect cup of wake me up every day.
For a machine instead of a manual coffee maker, this little kitchen addition is perfect for any coffee lover. It’s easy to use and clean, and can make you 40 different kinds of hot and cold drinks! Small enough to slot into any kitchen, and with the handy coffee pods, you can pop them in with little fuss and mess. It also comes with americano, latte and cappuccino pods if you’re not sure what your favourite is. You can also get it in red/grey! So go check it out!
Have you got someone who loves gaming in your life? I watched my partner play the entirety of Red Dead Redemption 2 recently. So I can say I would recommend this as a gift for anyone who hasn’t got it yet! It’s available on PS4 (£49.99), Xbox One (£49.99) and as a Xbox One Download code (£59.99). The graphics and gameplay are amazing, and we really enjoyed the story, including all of the side quests! I’ve heard good things about it from other people as well, and it’s a classic game for every platform.
The Maverick Gift Set Silver/White - £129
I bought my partner an Abbott Lyon watch for Christmas last year, and not to praise myself but he absolutely loved it! Their watches are fantastic quality, and come with a 2 year guarantee. For a watch this well made, it is a very fair price. You can even get them engraved! And they also come in a variety of colours. Unlike many watches in this price range, the depth of the watch face is slim, making it super wearable. They have become one of my favourite watch brands, and I would recommend this for anyone!
UNIQLO U Crew Neck Jumper - £34.90
My partner and I have been slightly obsessed with Uniqlo for the last few years, and when this range of jumper I loved! It’s so soft and cosy, and it comes in a range of amazing colours, although this light pink shade is my absolute favourite. You can’t really go wrong with Uniqlo, and no one can say no to a comfy, warm jumper! This one is reasonably priced for a product of this quality and I can personally say that no Uniqlo product has let me down!
I actually got this product for my mother and father in law last Christmas, and they both were really happy with it. If you know someone who loves sports and exercise, or is looking into getting fit as a new years resolution, the fitbit is perfect. It can track your work – out goals, and help you reach them. It can record specific exercises and see real time statistics and you can view instant post work – out summaries. Sleep is an important part of staying fit and active, and the fitbit can monitor your sleep and its quality, using the heart rate monitor. It’s a great way to track and reach your goals, and keep going with stats to encourage you to obtain your aim.
I actually bought this for myself earlier in the year, and it has been amazing at keeping me hydrated. When I ran out of filters last month (they last around 1 month each) I haven’t been using my bottle, and I know that I haven’t been hydrated. The issue was I wasn’t carrying around a bottle with me to remind me, and I also didn’t like the tap water in the area which I lived in. This bottle and the filters that come with it solved all of my problems, as the filter takes away the nasty chlorine taste of tap water. I have never stayed so well hydrated than when I had this bottle with me at all times, and really need to get it back! It comes with a lid which makes it handy to carry around, and it can even be washed in the dishwasher.
I got this bottle for my mom after her work went plastic free. The S’well bottles are all vacuum insulated and made of stainless steel, and are completely BPA free. 500 ml sized ones are typical of a standard bottle of water. It has triple walled construction so it means that drinks can be kept cold for 24 hours, or hot for 12 hours. So it’s perfect for both summer and winter. In the age of plastic free, we need to be more conscious of using disposable plastics! Carrying around a reusable and high quality water bottle is definitely a great start. So go and get yourself one too if you haven’t already!
My brother is one of those people that cannot wake up in the morning, so I got him this alarm clock after hearing rave reviews about the sun simulation light for waking up naturally. This one is available with 5 sounds (£101.59), or with 7 sounds (£112.95) but both have the sun light simulation modes. 92% of users have said that they find it easier to wake up in the morning, and you can also dim the lights and have gentle sounds playing to send you off to sleep. It even has a handy USB port to charge your phone!
And finally, one for the Beer lover in your life! I’ve been seeing these traditional style pint glasses everywhere recently. Although I personally do not drink beer, I find them much nicer than the standard pint glass. I really like the way they look, as well as the fact that they have a handle! This comes as a set of 4, and are sturdy and robust, and dishwasher safe. It even comes with a 2 year warranty so you can drink beers at home in style!
I really hope these items give you some inspiration or are what you are looking for, and that you enjoyed reading! As always, please let me know what you think and what you would’ve added to this list! I’d love to know if you do use any of these and what your thoughts are.
See you tomorrow for Blogmas Day 4!
