Next up, we’re tackling Gifts for Him. Men, in my humble opinion, are THE WORST to buy for. Particularly if they’re not all that into sports or the usual suspects, like socks and ties.
Luckily, several years of hunting for gifts for fussy men has put me in good stead for bringing you this gift guide. So, thanks to my dad, my brother and Neal.
1. “Memories and Moments” | Bread & Jam, £19.95
I’m a sucker for a sentimental gift, even if most men aren’t. If there’s a man in your life who is at the centre of many happy moments, this is a great way to celebrate them. Relive 10 of your happiest memories side by side with these notes, which are placed securely inside glass tubes, and delivered in a gorgeous box.
2. World Scratch Print | Maps International, £20.00
Travelling might be an all time favourite activity for your dad, brother, friend or other, and this is fun way to show off their adventures. They can scratch away the areas they’ve visited and see how much of the world is left to explore!
3. What Do You Meme? Board Game | Firebox, £29.99
I want this for myself. But, that’s not the point. Put their internet addiction to good use and have a giggle creating memes – by pairing the images with the funniest captions.
For the most part, the men in my life have been heavily interested in music. If yours are the same, then this gift will suit them down to the ground. This unusual print is a funky visual representation of their favourite song. That is, of course, dependent on them having one…
5. Dog And Owner Gift Set | Quirky Gift Library, £30.00
I’ve noticed a theme with men. They’re fine at playing it cool… until they get a dog. Both my dad and my brother adore their pups. This set is a sweet way to include their prized pooch in the gift giving. It includes a pair of walking socks and some chocolate for the human, then a ball and bag of treats for the dog. I know, this includes socks, but I figure we can get away with it in this context…
If you know a whisky fanatic, here’s a way to give them a full experience. This includes five mini bottles of whisky from around Scotland, tasting cards and a tasting mat. It transforms a casual drinking experience into an educational one which, I’m sure, will make it twice as enjoyable for some!
And if none of these are quite right and you have lost all hope of finding something they’ll like, get them:
For the person who has everything.
