It isn’t always easy to know what to get the man in your life for Christmas. Not only are men harder to buy gifts for but it can be difficult to find something you think they’ll love that’s also affordable and a nice surprise on the day itself. If you’re struggling for inspiration for what to buy your husband, partner, dad or brother this year, here are some ideas for gifts for the men in your life this Christmas.
Just because the range of accessories isn’t as big for men as it is for women, doesn’t mean men should miss out on a great way to elevate their look and express themselves. Every man should own at least one wristwatch, so why not treat the man in your life to a classy watch they can use to show off their style? Or you could treat him to a smart pair of cufflinks.
Men are increasingly seeing the benefits of a regular skincare routine so why not treat the man in your life to some top-quality men’s skincare products? Many of the big-name skincare brands, such as Clarins and Kiehl’s, offer starter sets, including essentials such as cleanser and moisturiser or you could opt for a classy shaving set with a shaving brush and beard oil.
No longer just for the older gent, slippers are now on trend regardless of your age so whether you go for the classic loafer or slip-on slippers that never go out of style or something a little more modern, the man in your life is sure to appreciate a pair of stylish slippers this Christmas.

A good book is a gift that keeps on giving. Even if the man in your life isn’t a big reader, there’s sure to be something that will pique his interest – whether that’s an autobiography of his music idol, a non-fiction title about one of his hobbies, a new cookbook packed with delicious recipes for him to try in the kitchen, or a good old-fashioned thriller that will have him turning the pages long after dark.
What to Get Someone Who Already Has Everything
If it seems like they already have everything they could possibly need or want, you’re going to have to get creative. Consider gifting an experience rather than a physical item. For example, you could buy them tickets to a football game, music concert or a comedy gig that they’d love. Or they might appreciate a wine tasting experience at a vineyard or a boat ride along the Thames.
If you’d rather give them something they can unwrap and enjoy on the day, you could go for a novelty gift like a chocolate tree or silly socks or give them something practical like a phone stand or bike seat cover. Remember that whatever you get, they’re sure to be happy that you thought of them and it really is the thought that counts!
