Christmas Gift Guide For Men

I can't believe we're just over a month away from Christmas now, the year has flown by! The Christmas films are now out and being watched almost every night and I really want to put the tree up now along with all the festive decor (basically I want to turn my flat into a grotto). The lead up to Christmas is so fun! On Christmas day, there's nothing I love more than seeing someone open a gift that I have thoughtfully chosen for them and to see their reaction as they unwrap and see what it is. It can be quite a challenge to find something unique and different for a partner/ dad/ brother/ uncle when men can be so hard to buy for. When I think of what to get for a man my first thought is erm... socks? alcohol? aftershave? I think it's nice to put some thought into the gifts you buy by thinking outside of the box a little. To help any of you out that may also struggle for ideas of what to get for the men in your life, I have created a gift guide that features unique gift ideas that maybe you wouldn't have necessarily thought of.

Alcohol makes the best gift at Christmas right? Why not make your choice of alcohol gifts for your partner, brother or dad a bit different to the standard bottle of whiskey that you usually buy them every year and go for something more unique. As it's Christmas, something Christmassy would go down a treat. The Best of British Beer Christmas gift pack would make a great present for any beer loving man. The set comes in a pack of six quality beers which are chosen from the most popular, award-winning micro breweries which allows you to sample the very best of British beer. With merry designs on the front and with names such as 'Bobbin Robin', 'Hoppy Christmas' and 'Yule Fuel', these delightful ales will surely make the perfect gift and also look spectacularly festive under the Christmas tree. 

If your man prefers something stronger, like a whisky or gin, then 31Dover is your go to place. They have a huge range of Christmas gifts and there is definitely something for everyone from a Japanese whisky tasting set, to cocktail gift jars and Chase marmalade vodka - yum. Another great gift idea are the pick and mix boxes in which you can choose 3 fun-size (2-3 shots) miniatures which come complete in a sleek black gift box. This would be great for a Secret Santa! If you know that your brother is bound to get a bottle of whisky for Christmas, then why not get something fancy for him to store it in? A decanter would make such a thoughtful, special and impressive gift! Amara have a lovely collection of decanters to choose from to suit a range of budgets; the one pictured is a bargain for £36. The one above is the Nordal square glass decanter and features a stunning etched design on the exterior with a luxurious golden edge and diamond shaped topper. This would make a bold statement in any home and would be a lovely gift for someone to store and preserve their favourite tipple with style!

Everyone loves a film night. Gift Alien have the perfect gift for the movie fanatic in your life; a movie night gift box. Whether it be horror, comedy or action, gift alien has a box to suit everyone. They even have Christmas specials (which would obviously make such an amazing present), boxes for pub lovers and also boxes for younger movie fanatics. Each movie box is filled to the brim with exciting goodies. There's plenty of snacks (which I LOVE) because you can't have a film night without them right?! Inside you'll get authentic cinema nachos, a tasty bag of pick 'n' mix sweets, sweet and salted popcorn, malteasers and minstrels - plenty of snacks to last through the whole film (and some left over too)! In the box you will also get the DVD of your choice, 2 Coca Cola cups and straws, a traditional cinema popcorn bag, movie tickets and a movie trivia game. For £22 you get so much, it's such a great bargain and a lovely gift idea (and makes an awesome date night)! What I love about this gift is that it is more than just a gift, it's an experience for the person you are gifting it to. The little details like the cinema tickets and movie trivia make it extra fun, it's like being at the cinema but in the comfort of your living room and is so much better! Also, Gift Alien are giving my readers free Christmas wrapping on any gift box purchased right up until Christmas day (this is great if you're a last minute buyer - the perfect gift and already wrapped), just use the code LLBWRAP at the checkout!

Christmas is the perfect time to bring out all the board games, so what could be a better gift than a game with a bit more uniqueness to them like the ones from Talking Tables. My favourite, and top choice for men definitely has to be the pub quiz. With a couple of beers this would make such an amazing gift. Perfect for a lads night in, this pub quiz can be enjoyed in the comfort of your own home; all you need is a host, some friends and a few drinks and nibbles and that's a great night sorted! This game comes complete with 1, 000 challenging questions featuring an array of topics including sport, history, science, film and literature, an answer pad, scoreboard poster, six coasters and of course, a trophy for the winner. You could spend hours playing this game as it's so much fun! If you're looking for a stocking filler, the dipsticks charades would be perfect; it's a classic game and a great one for Christmas day too. You could get two games out of one here by also using it to play pictionary! For the inquisitive, battling brains would be a good gift option. This game is all about finding out which side of your brain is the most dominant and features 200 trivia questions. For the (bad) jokers, the 'dad jokes' or 'cheesy jokes' would also make a fab stocking filler. The cheesy jokes include a lot of cheesiness which is sure to make everyone have a giggle.

For the sporty guy, headphones are a thoughtful gift idea. For the avid gym goer, the Sol Republic wireless headphones are great as they are virtually weightless allowing for maximum comfort when doing sport and are also water and sweat resistant; perfect for the gym. The sound quality is also amazing with deep rich bass and incredible clarity. What makes these headphones stand out against regular ones is the fact that you can use the device to answer calls, in addition to adjusting the volume, pausing, and skipping music - how cool is that?! If your man is less in to sport, and is someone who loves to listen to and enjoy music, then the House of Marley Nesta headphones would make a lovely gift. The headphones are available in classic black and a stylish rose gold and come with a cute stash bag (which is great for those who seem to find their headphone wires are always in a tangle). Nesta provides acoustically balanced sound using ultra-modern dynamic drivers that incorporate noise-isolating technology which means that the sound is of the best quality with plenty of bass. These are then perfect for long train journeys and times when you want to zone out from the world and listen to your favourite songs.
