I have a friend that always buys the best gifts. She is a gift fairy and someone that I aspire to be. There is a real knack for buying the perfect gift, a gift that will be loved and used. This is a duel gift guide as it works as Dad’s gift guide for the festive season or birthdays but also a Father’s day gift guide. This Men’s gift guide to help you no matter what his style find a gift that a Dad will use or love day in and day out
Men’s Gift Guide
This gift guide includes affiliate links, which means that if you purchase after clicking on my link, I might get a few extra pennies (enough to keep me in tea), but they will cost you NO MORE.
I am going to be honest my husband is possibly one of the hardest people to buy for. He doesn’t really want for anything and he isn’t into golf or stuff like that. Also, he just wouldn’t thank you for some novelty gift to just sit in a drawer!
This is the current shaver that the husband has and it was a series 3 shaver that transformed the way he shaved when he first got one back in 2014.
It is a great shaver and works for him whether he is clean-shaven or has facial hair. It is a wet or dry shave and one charge lasts a whole week. We have also this shaver for both of our teenage boys.
My husband wears a suit every day to work and, therefore, wears a tie too. So a tie clip is a perfect gift for him. A tie clip prevents his tie from dropping when he is working.
When it comes to men’s sheepskin slippers they are often multi fit i.e. small, medium and large, however, men’s slippers from Fitflop come in specific sizes perfect for Maxi (18) who is an EU 43 or a UK 9. These Mens Shearling-Lined Suede Slippers were supposed to be for his Dad but he claimed them as soon as they arrived (I have ordered another pair for the husbeast for Christmas).
The husbeast would LOVE a bean-to-cup machine, but they are way out of our price range, however, he does love the Tassimo machine we have. He thinks it makes a great cup of coffee and the boys are big fans of the Suchard hot chocolate. A big benefit of the Tassimo is that the boys have been able to make a decent cup of coffee for years, as we let them use it much earlier than we did the kettle. We have had 2 machines since 2013 and wouldn’t be without one. We keep our disks and then send them back to be recycled using the Terracycle scheme. We collect our used T-discs and once we have a good box full we print off a label and send the disks to be recycled. We have nominated a preferred charity to receive donations.
How many times have you seen a man doing DIY and dropping a nail or screw or with one in their mouth? This magnetic wristband is a brilliant stocking filler.
Often the way to a man’s heart is through his mouth! MadDad loves introducing the boys to retro sweets. They have a laugh and decide which is the best!
Fortifying Green Bath Potion
This MOA Fortifying Green Bath Potion is my husband’s favourite bath product, so much so we have it on auto subscribe!
LEGO Icons Land Rover Classic Defender 90
What could be better than LEGO and a Landrover? This LEGO Icons Land Rover Classic Defender 90 will be a massive hit and yes I know it is a bit of an investment piece but he will love it!
We might not be bgi alcohol drinkers but we do have a bar filled with non-alcoholic drinks for adults and I love this neon bar sign. It is an ace present and being battery operated it can move around and is perfect for indoor and outdoor parties plus it is under £20.
Do you have someone that is a football fan to nut for – we have someone in our life that is a lifelong Sunderland supporter and this year we have opted for a bottle of handcrafted British vodka officially licensed by Sunderland FC by Bohemian Brands which we are putting inside one of my DIY Christmas printed bottle bags.
Screen Magnifier for Smartphone
Elevate the man in your life smartphone watching with this Screen Magnifier for Smartphones. No more watching football or a movie on their smartphone screen instead they get to see it much more clearly on a larger screen.
Although he might not share it, MadDad loves a good boogie and he loves being able to listen to his music anywhere. This cube speaker looks and sounds great and is really affordable.
Outdoor Pizza Oven
What is it with men, they love the lure of cooking outside and an outdoor pizza oven is a great addition if you already have a BBQ. Our pizza base tastes amazing when cooked in a wood fired pizza oven!
No room for an outdoor pizza oven then check out the fabulous indoor pizza oven that we use each Saturday.
The husbeast had a fab Dad is King mug from Emma Bridgewater from 2012 and last week it cracked! He was distraught, so we will be replacing it with a new one.
These magic beans are laser engraved with different messages. The beans quickly sprout to reveal a special personalised message engraved on the plant’s central bean. A guaranteed hit for the kids and for Dad too.
An Experience Day
Experience being more lasting happiness than things and there really is something to suit every Dad, including a sausage making day, craft brewing experience, bread making class, foraging class or even a blacksmithing workshop.
