Christmas Gift Guide 2016: For Him



When it comes to buying for men this Christmas, I am on helping hand with this handy gift guide. Lets face it men are always going to be hard to buy for. Luckily for me when it comes to my husband I tend to find it easy for what to get him. But the other men I need to buy for can be pretty tricky to know what to get.   

Below is my 2016 Christmas Gift Guide for men and and I have some pretty good stuff that I think the men in your life will hopefully like too. 

The reader
The Secret Dairy of Hendrink Groen 83  ¼  old is of the indomitable Hendrik Groen - Holland's unlikeliest hero - has become a cultural phenomenon in his native Netherlands and now he and his famously anonymous creator are conquering the globe. A major Dutch bestseller, The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen will not only delight older readers with its wit and relevance, but will charm and inspire those who have years to go before their own expiry date. Hendrik Groen may be old, but he is far from dead and isn't planning to be buried any time soon. Granted, his daily strolls are getting shorter because his legs are no longer willing and he had to visit his doctor more than he'd like. Technically speaking he is ... elderly. But surely there is more to life at his age than weak tea and potted geraniums. RRP:£9.99.

*The Film Fanatic 
The release of Suicide Squad on DVD and Bluray is sure to be a popular gift this Christmas with men (and women). Suicide Squad is the latest DC installment where the worst of the worst and are recruited by the government to try and do some good for once, starring Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto and many more. We watched this in the cinema earlier this year and loved it so definitely a must. RRP: £9.99.



*For Those Who Love A Good Tipple

When it comes to spirits this Christmas its a good time to try out different ones. So I think the Balvenie tasting pack is a good start. The Balvenie is known the world-over for being the most handcrafted of Single Malts. The set contains x3 50ml bottles of their classic whiskies - fantastic for any whisky lover! Each expression in the range has a distinctive taste, but all share a rich honeyed character. RRP:£15.



*To Keep Them Smelling Good

Aftershave sets are always a good bet as they are used often. The Bluebeards revenge EDT gift set is a fragrant gift set that is designed to keep the manliest of men smelling their best at all times.Containing a fresh and masculine shower gel to ensure that he gets off on the right foot, and a refreshingly modern Eau de Toilette to finish, this is an utterly mantastic set that is sure to put a smile on his face. I really love the smell of this set and hubby does too which is a big win in our books so fully recommend this set! RRP:£24.99.



*To add a bit of designer to their wardrobe

Want to add some designer items to your mans collection but not want to spend a fortune than these two Ted Baker sets from Mainline Menswear are ideal as they are under £30. 

These 3 pack of socks in blue, grey marl and purple. the first pair is in blue with the ankle cuff, toe panel, and heel panel in contrasting purple. The second pair of socks is grey marl with the ankle cuff, toe, and heel panel in purple, pink, and red. The third pair of socks is in purple with the ankle cuff, toe, and heel panel in contrasting grey marl.The signature Ted Baker logo is printed along the the sole of one sock of each pair in gold. RRP:£24.


The Ted Baker Underwear Sock And Patterned Boxer Set contains:
 One pair of soft cotton socks in navy with the ankle cuff and toe panel in contrasting red and the heel panel in blue.  The cotton mix boxers feature an overall printed pattern in grey marl, red, and navy. RRP:£28.


*The Gym Devotee 

Is your fella a gym devotee or maybe some other man in your life loves the gym. If you have a healthy budget why not get him these Bowflex 4-41kg  dumbells (pair).  At £499 these dumbells mean that your guy can use weights at home rather than at the gym. Bowflex Super Heavy Dumbbells deliver the ultimate workout challenge. Replace 17 sets of dumbbells with just one pair! Simply turn the dial to adjust your weights between 4-41kg. *Fitness Superstore Exclusive* RRP:£499.



*For A Close Shave

The Braun Body Groomer is for a perfectly groomed body, it is 100% waterproof so can be used in the shower. Your man can trim body hair to precise lengths of 0.6mm, 3mm and 8mm. For 3 different looks when they don’t want to clean shave. The sensitive comb improves safety when trimming delicate areas like armpit or groin. There are 5 integrated Gillette Fusion blades for the smoothest clean shave without nicks and cuts. RRP:£25


The Gillette Fusion ProShield Features

• ProShield Lubrication BEFORE and after the blades shields from irritation while you shave
• FlexBall Technology that responds to contours and gets virtually every hair
• 5 precision blades provide less tug and pull for incredible comfort*
• Precision Trimmer on back for accurate edging
• Blades fit all Fusion and ProGlide® handles

RRP:£14

*For those that need a bit of Gin

Sometimes only gin will do! The Cotswolds Distillery Dry Gin has a delicious blend of nine carefully considered botanicals. The result is a classic well-balanced juniper-led gin with crisp citrus and spice. This gin is delicious on its own and over ice. It’s robust enough to stand up to tonic and smooth enough to craft the ultimate gin martini. RRP: £34.99






What do you think of my guide? Will be buying any of these for the men in your life?
