I have got great gift ideas for men that you can steal from

What could be inside for him this christmas? (freedigitalphotos.net, 2010)

So I’ve always had a real problem buying presents for men. I never know what to get! Beyond boxers, handkerchiefs and shirts…I’m kinda stuck. It’s worse if its a man who seems to have everything ! I’ve got men in my life: my husband, my dad, my brother (and my son but I already know he wants Super Mario Galaxy video games… or rather Santa knows….) To get something “creative” for my men, I’ve done some research. I am known to be a practical gift-giver but this year I don’t want to give a hot water bottle again (hehehe!) or a DIY kit. My top choices for men’s gifts are:

10. Boxers (I know- basic but he can never have too many)

9. Massaging chair (beats you having to do it!)
8. Gaming chair (around £120 but much cheaper ones exist, depends on what you’re trying to encourage here)
7. Topgear box set (Ebay is the place to get these at a bargain, £10 tops)

6. A subscription to GQ or What CAR? (there’s currently a christmas gift offer on Whatcar.magazine.co.uk)

5. Topgear ticket (shockingly, these are free try BBC website!)

4. Turntable to play those oldies (£80/Boysstuff.co.uk)

3. Personalized items e.g. Mug, t-shirts (something from the kids like”World’s greatest dad” will soften him up 😉 )
2. Tickets to a game in the new year e.g football (do him one better n buy two tickets so he can take his friend).
1. A really cool jacket….

The best websites (UK only) are Boysstuff.co.uk, NeXT, Asos, Oxfam, Boots just to name a few. I’m sure similar outlets in the US and the rest of Europe will have an assortment of choices. I hope this helps!

Happy holidays- over and out:-)
