The gift guide for him

Finally my favourite time of year has come around and I am very excited to bring you the first of my guides: gifts for him. Men are truly the hardest to buy for, and this year has been no exception. I have curated a list of fun and thoughtful items that the men in your life are sure to love. 

Some items have been gifted by the brand and will contain an *. Affiliate links used.

For the sock lover
Whilst the thought of socks and underwear in your stocking may bring a laugh to a few people, I firmly believe that they are the key to a successful festive period. Who says no to a pair of cosy socks that work perfectly in the house or layered under some wellies as you walk through the snow? This year my dad is getting a pair of the Totes Toasies slipper socks and he is going to enjoy them, I guarantee. Buy them here.

For the tipple enthusiast
My brother has recently gotten into rum drinking, so I found this set of Dead Man's Fingers rum and glass set in B&M and knew it would be perfect. The rum brand is a firm favourite amongst the men of my family and the set could even fit in a stocking if need be. Buy it here. The second beverage on this list is a triple vintage cider from the brand Showerings*. It is the first I have heard of the brand but I think we can all apprciate how stunning the packaging and box are, and it is something that I'm really looking forward to gifting to my dad this Christmas. In the words of Showering's themselves; the cider is elegantly dry, gently carbonated and deeply cultured, created using techniques requiring as much experience and attention-to-detail as those used in the creation of fine wines. Buy the cider here.

Eye mask
My boyfriend loves an eye mask and has a pile of mine next to his bed. This year he finally gets his own one. It's not any old mask either, its a luxury sleep mask from Earth's Secret*. The mask is super soft, breathable and comes in it's own little bag for safekeeping. Our bedroom floods with light each morning so the 100% blackout design is perfect. The mask is £29.99 and you can buy it here. 

The classics
Would it be Christmas without an aftershave or two? Boss Bottled is my first choice for the boyfriend. The scent is described as an ambery wood smell, but all I smell is warmth. I love it. Buy it here. If you want a classic fragrance but something on the more affordable side, Bench offer a fabulous range of aftershaves too. Pick some up here.

The board game family
We are that family. Whether it's a living room pub quiz, or 8 of us sat round the coffee table playing cards; a game is a vital part of any family gathering for us. We've already taken up a few rounds of What Do You Meme, and have Incoherent and New Phone, Who Dis? to unwrap this year. The games are available on Amazon and Smyths from £21.99 and I couldn't recommend enough for some post- dinner fun. Buy them here. 

Something to do
My boyfriend loves nothing more than making or building something so this year I picked up one of the Rokr models. This will go perfectly in his stocking and knowing him, it'll be completed before the roasties are even in the oven. Buy it here.

Something to wear
My brother has started to wear bracelets every now and then, so as one to always add to accessory collections, I decided to pick up a few from ASOS. Smaller accessories make great stocking gifts, or something that my mum has just taken up, giving us small table presents at dinner. Buy them here.

Whatever the gift is, big small, bagged or bottled, I'm sure that the men in your lives will love each and every one.
