Gift guide for the guys

Now that we’ve feasted on our fair share of turkey (for the Americans anyway), filled our boots with some Black Friday buys and trimmed the tree, we can finally welcome Christmas time with arms wide open. It’s time to bake up a storm, fill the calendar with all things fun and make sure that those special people in your life know how much you care. Over the next few weeks we will be sharing some of our favorite gift giving ideas to inspire your lists, because nothing says ‘I love you’ more than taking the time to put some thought behind the gift you give. Thought trumps the cost of the present any day of the week. So to start us off we’re focusing these next two guides on the special men in your life. Sure they can never have enough cologne, socks and tools – but maybe you can make their smile a little brighter this season by gifting them something out of the box?

Gift guide for the guys

Magazine subscription | Although they’re likely not to be the first to admit it, even the guys like receiving a little bit of happiness through the post. This Christmas why not ensure that they receive something fun through the mail slot at least once a month with a magazine subscription to their favourite leisurely read? The great thing about this option is there is likely something to suit everyone’s palate.

Brewery Tour | Experiences often make the best gifts, with a higher chance of memory making. You head to the spa and send him with some friends on a brewery tour and it’s basically a day made in gift giving heaven. The one we’ve found is a brewery bus tour but search your local area to see what kind of packages that they might offer.

Tie BarThis is the perfect solution to take his wardrobe to another level. This set of accessories is so varied and useful he’ll never find himself without just the right finishing touch for whatever outfit he (or you) puts together.

Apple everythingApple products take the tech world from geeky to uber cool. The latest hit is the James Bond-esque Apple Watch, but for the chronic binge-box-set-watcher, Apple TV is sure to be a hit taking what’s downloaded and loading it on to your TV. 

Crosley record player | This nostalgic gift brings yesteryear to today and is perfect for every generation. Your dad will reminisce and play his favourites from the ‘good ol’ days’ and your other half will see it as a fun challenge to seek out his favourite records. Best gift for both worlds.

Beats pill wireless speaker | This is especially ideal if your guy is a frequent beach goer or habitual traveller. This speaker brings the sound to wherever you are and syncs with any bluetooth compatible device. 

Herschel duffle bag | For the guy on the go this duffle is both fashionable and practical. Whether he is headed to the gym or packing a carry on for his next travel, this bag is the perfect piece of luggage for both.

Happy shopping! Check back later in the week for gift fashion ideas for your guy!
