Christmas Gift Guide For Him

What do you get the men in your life for Christmas?
I've always found males harder to buy for than females, especially as they get older. I've put together a few ideas (as featured in my YouTube video) for you for males young and old, and let's face it, we're all just big kids when it comes down to it! Plus keep reading for your chance to win a fabulous prize just in time for Christmas.
Let's talk pants!
Ok, not starting with one for sharing, at least I hope not! Some men are notoriously bad at buying new under wear though, so it's time to take control and slip a little something into their stocking this year.
Y.O.U Underwear is a sustainable fashion company with a range of underwear for men and women that enshrine the principles of style, comfort and body positivity. Their underwear is designed to be stylish and comfortable across a broad range of body shapes and sizes, it also comes beautifully packaged in an organic cotton bag, making it the perfect gift.
What's even better is that they operate on a buy-one-give-two model, meaning that they donate two pairs of underwear to vulnerable women and children for every pair sold. This is the perfect option if you’re looking for a gift that gives a little bit more! Y.O.U underwear is also Fairtrade, Vegan and made from 100% GOTS Certified Organic Cotton by India’s leading ethical and sustainable manufacturer. This means your fella can look good, do good and feel good starting with his underwear.
Men’s underwear can be surprisingly complicated – there’s an ever-expanding range of styles, which are often hard to distinguish. This is why Y.O.U have chosen their single favourite style - trunks - because they know that they’re super-comfortable and stylish too.
Y.O.U trunks come in 4 different colours: black, dark grey (charcoal), light grey (heather), and white. £17 - 1 pair, £30 - 2 pairs, £42 - 3 pairs

Buying clothes for the opposite sex can be a bit hit and miss. The safer option is a good old pair of cosy pyjamas, and lets face it, who doesn't like a new pair of pyjamas at Christmas. There are sets to suit all budgets and tastes, or for novelty factor you might want to get them a pair of Christmas pyjamas. I like to put theses in Christmas Eve boxes too. Super Markets have a good selection. The set in my video were £16.99 from Tesco as do the likes of Primark and New Look for example.
Air Ball £15
A new hit from the Buzz Retail range. A floating ball that can be played at any surface: wooden floor, laminate, marble or even a thin carpet.
The ball creates an air bubble underneath it so it’s actually hovering over the ground.
A fun toy for all the family together without breaking the bank or the house!
Thunder Glow Drone £50
What is it with men and machines? In fact men and making things fly - right from the days of kite, the males seem to love getting something into the air! Welcome to the party then a Drone. There are many shapes and sizes to choose from. The Thunder Glow is a medium size Drone with LED lights all around it. Including 6 axis gyro stabiliser, long range 2.4 GHz control, low/medium/high speeds and an automatic trim function. Includes: back to home and headless mode.

Spice Spice Baby
Fancy Spicing things up? No, not that... If the man in your life likes his food with added flavour, or imagines himself as a wiz in the kitchen, why not pick him up a ‘Season’s Greetings’ Spice Blend Box Set. The box set contains 5 different spice blends that would compliment any spice rack/cupboard. You'll also be supporting a small business at the same time.
Many shops will be offering hampers this time of year. You could go all out and splash the cash on one from Selfridges or Fortum & Mason, or again why not support a small local business. Last year I went around lots of shops to build a hamper full of local produce, which is one idea, or shop around and see what pre-packaged hampers are on offer, such as this one from Delilah. https://delilahfinefoods.co.uk/collections/award-winners/products/award-winners-hamper
Many will have dietary options as well as non-alcoholic for example.
How about a tool. with a difference? Pick up this Chocolate Adjustable Spanner Nut Bolt & washer £15.99 from small business Amazing Chocolates. Every practical gent has a tool like this; the adjustable spanner is a timeless classic and an essential part of any toolbox, chocolate or otherwise! Twinned with a working chocolate nut and bolt (& washer of course!) it’s a sublime perfectly proportioned gift.
You can support local and small businesses another way by buying a gift card/voucher. It' s been a tough year for many so buying a voucher now can help them stay in business. This could be for a restaurant for example, maybe a massage at your local salon or a spa day.
or Independent - Ye Olde Bell Spa
A surprise holiday is a great gift too! Booking you both a weekend away somewhere gives you something to look forward to. This year, more so than any, do make sure you read the small print and your rights if your holiday is affected by Covid19. Use my link https://www.airbnb.co.uk/c/tanyal6252. to sace to save up to £50 off your reservation with AirBnB
A subscription is also a great idea for a gift that keeps giving all year. I could be something like Netflix or maybe a years subscription to their favourite magazine either online or in print that is connected to their favourite hobby, for example BBC Good Food.
Finally, if 2020 has taught us anything, it is how important time with our loved ones is, so why not give them the gift of your time with a book of coupons you can write out and give them to use as they please. For example you could have a coupon for a date at the cinema, a night in watching his favourite film, food at his favourite restaurant...the possibilities are endless.
