Wow, is it really that time of year when we all start thinking about Christmas, and buying gifts? The year has gone by so quickly hasn’t it?! I’ve got a series of gift guides to share with you this year, and today it’s 10+ great Christmas gift ideas for men. I’m sure there is at least one or two gifts here that would be perfect for the special men in your life…
Christmas Gift Ideas For Men
I don’t know about you, but I find that buying presents for the men in my family is really difficult! But I have a real mix of Christmas gift ideas for men, at varying price points that I hope will give you some ideas and inspiration for the men in your life!
I’ve reached out to brands for this Christmas Gift Guide, so products marked with an asterisk (*) have been gifted to me. Other items I’ve included are things I think would make a great gift, or an addition to a gift basket or Christmas stocking. This post also contains Amazon Affiliate and other affiliate links. If you clicked the link then made a purchase, a small percentage of the sale price would be paid to me. It doesn’t cost you anything more but it helps keep the lights on over here!
This guide is detailed (and long!) Of course I would love you to browse through all the items within it, but if you are short on time, each of the links listed will jump to the relevant section. Don’t forget you can save this post to Pinterest to read later. Or maybe share it on Facebook to drop a few hints!
For the man who loves Star Wars…
Bring a little bit of film history to your spirits collection with this stunning Stormtrooper Decanter! Based on the original moulds from the Shepperton Design Studios, this amazing home accessory is as close as it is possible to get to the original film props. So if your Star Wars fan accepts nothing but the very best, I can think of no better gift than this awesome glass design!
The decanter is an officially licensed product, with 750ml capacity suitable for spirits and wine, and a cork topped seal. Not suitable for dishwasher or microwave. Measures approximately 18cm x 15cm x 11cm.
Star Wars is a big thing in my whole family, and I can think of several men that would love this as a gift! You could also buy the matching Stormtrooper glass, moulded from the 1976 masks. There are also some fun Star Wars shot glasses too.
For the man who loves beer…
Long time readers will know that we love a subscription box in this household, and they are available for all sorts of products! For the beer lovers out there, there are subscription boxes that are delivered to your door with bottles and cans of beer – awesome. We have tried two different subscriptions, and they are very similar in what you receive, so it’s about checking them both out and thinking which one would suit your man the best!
You can read what we think about these two subscription boxes here: Flavourly and Beer 52. With one box we had a Beer Festival at home, which was fun, and the other box was my husband’s first foray in reviewing on my blog! Both are very similar – in what you receive, and in price. Just check out both of the websites for the most up to date information and to set up a gift subscription for your beer lover!
- Buy the Flavourly Craft Beer Club as a gift. Special offer – £5.03 off your 1st craft beer box at Flavourly! 10 Beers for only £19.97! Until 31st January 2018.

For the man who is incurably curious…
Collins presents the ultimate gift for travellers, map lovers and adventurers of all ages: the Explorer’s Atlas. A lavishly illustrated book of maps, Explorer’s Atlas is packed full of quirky facts and curiosities from all over the world.
Whether you’re a would-be Michael Palin, or you’re looking for ideas to fuel future travel plans, Explorer’s Atlas will inspire wonder and delight in everyone from intrepid explorers to armchair adventurers.
Facts range from history and politics to popular culture and record-breaking sporting feats, along with statistics on population, economy and topography. Easy-to-read icons, graphics and routes allow you to travel across continents and oceans and bring the geography and current affairs of our world to life: you can trace gas and oil pipelines across the mountains of Northern Iran, follow the sailing routes that migrant boats make from Libya to Lampedusa or explore the borderline between the United States of America and Mexico. The visuals and the fascinating accompanying text will make you see the world through different eyes.
This is one of those books that will fascinate everyone in the family. I can imagine my son reading this, and then informing us of all the facts within. He used to do the same with the books we bought him when he was a little boy.
For the man who needs a close shave…
Gillette Fusion Proshield Razor*
Technological innovation makes the Gillette Fusion ProGlide better than the Gillette Fusion razor, while the handle featuring FlexBall Technology responds to contours for a great shave, even over the trickiest areas.
Reengineered low cutting force blades feature thinner, finer edges (first 4 blades) with advanced low-resistance coating to cut effortlessly through hair with less tug and pull (vs Fusion). The razor’s enhanced Lubrastrip (vs Fusion) is infused with mineral oil and lubricating polymers.
I remember the jingle from the television ads – “Gillette, the best a man can get”, and it’s the reason why Gillette are the number one razor we buy in our household. This razor would go down well with either my son or husband.
You can buy this Gillette Fusion ProShield for £7.92 (was £11.89) from Superdrug.
Gillette Proshield Chill Justice League Starter Pack
In partnership with Warner Bros. Pictures’ upcoming “Justice League” action adventure film, Gillette kicks off research to explore technology to groom the next generation of Super Heroes. Limited-edition Gillette x “Justice League” gift packs are available in-stores now until January 2018.
And to up your “Justice League” experience even further, Gillette in partnership with Warner Brothers is providing exclusive virtual reality content, available now for free download via the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. You’ll essentially join the Justice League in a thrilling Virtual Reality experience that allows you to step into the shoes and feel the powers of the iconic DC Super Heroes: Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg.
Give the gift of a sleek, close shave with Gillette’s ProShield Starter Pack! It includes Gillette Fusion ProShield men’s razor, plus three Refill Blades . The razor has lubrication before & after the blades, and also features Gillette’s thinnest & finest blades (first four blades, same as ProGlide), five precision blades, FlexBall technology and a Precision Trimmer on the back.
For the special man in your life…
The Book of Everyone*
The Book of Everyone is a fantastic personalised book, filled to the brim with amazing personalised facts and wonderful curiosities about the world the person was born into. Let him know that he shares 50% of his DNA with a banana, and how many adult African bull elephants’ worth of food he’s eaten in his lifetime. They’ll discover that how many years they’ve spent dreaming so far, or they were born the same year Mike Curzon won the World Pea Shooting Championships. A satirically nostalgic glance back to the world the person was born into. The book is packed with personalised nostalgia, curious facts, and wonderful artwork.
I customised The Book of Everyone for my husband’s 45th birthday (which is close to Christmas!) and it was a lot of fun to go through the book and personalise it. I was able to personalise a lot more than I thought I would. And there were times when it was hard to make a final decision! I’ve not included the photo of the book I made here as I don’t want hubby to see it, but when he does I’ll pop it in!
You start by filling in some basic details – name, gender, date of birth – and then you can select whether you want the age in their book to be the age they are now, or on their next birthday. Since this was a birthday gift, I went for his next birthday. You then type in who it is from (you can add more than one person) and then select the relationship you have with that person: friends, family, romantic, etc. Not that I tested it, but I would suspect it will alter some of the pages in the book.
With all of that done, you then go through the book, page by page. You can change the colour of the front cover, and you know which pages you can customise, thanks to a special icon which appears. Customisations could be changing the graphic/art on the page from the choices available. On some pages you can upload your own photographs. On pages where you can customise what is written you can either add your own thoughts or use a suggestion provided.
It really is easy to do, and like I said, a lot of fun! It took me quite a while to personalise the book, because I found myself reading all the different facts and other info within!
If you don’t want to customise a book, there is a quickie version too. You can literally make it in seconds – easy peasy, but still packed with amazing personalised facts and wonderful statistics to celebrate the individual the book is made for.
This book makes a great gift for him, and I can’t wait for my husband to read it, I know he is going to love it!
Buy The Book of Everyone online here. Available in paperback (£23.95) and hardback (£29.95); with digital and deluxe options too.
For the man who loves to smell goooood…
Paco Rabanne Pure XS – EDT Spray
A vibrant, magnetic and fresh oriental scent with spicy notes of ginger, cinnamon and sweet vanilla blended with a myrrh and woody base.
A contemporary design that gives rise to the idea of a lighter, Pure XS opens up, one handed with a black lacquered cap. The electric blue bottle is a weighty glass with polished edges: instinctive and substantial.
Packaged in dark velvet, all is luxuriously sensual. Electric blue and gold, the shock of sensory contradictions.
For the man who loves football…
The Art of Football*
Art of Football create hand crafted designs try to emulate the energy, passion and euphoria that erupts from that one magical kick of a football. They only produce a limited number of each design, so your t-shirts & prints, like any good piece of art, are exclusive and completely original.
Every order comes gift wrapped and in a hand painted box. The Art of Football have expanded their range to include rugby and boxing.
If you have a footie (or rugby, or boxing) fan in your life, then this gift is a little bit different. My son is a West Ham fan, so this artwork of Andy Carroll is a perfect gift for him. He already have several pieces of football memorabilia on his bedroom walls, and will love this. As well as the prints, Art of Football also sell t-shirts, so take a look around their site, and I’m sure you’ll find a great gift for your sports fan!
Prices from £9.99 from Art of Football
For the man who loves waffles…
American Originals 3 in 1 Treat Maker*
If the man in your life loves waffles then he can easily make his own with the American Originals 3 in 1 Treat Maker! It not only create waffles, but also donuts and cakepops! With just one machine by choosing from one of the three detachable cooking plates. The plates are non-stick coated, making them easy to clean. The automatic temperature control and the ready light means your treats will be baked to perfection every time.
The instruction manual includes recipes too, so if he fancies himself as a bit of a GBBO contestant, but hasn’t quite got the skills, this kitchen gadget will take care of things!
We are gadget fiends in this house, and this is so much fun! I love that it is versatile with the different cooking plates, and that they are easy to clean too. The dimensions are Size H10, W16, D23cm, so it may feel smaller than the picture suggests. But that doesn’t stop it from making delicious treats! Why not bundle this up with some ingredients, so that he can get cooking right from the off?

Gift sets are staple Christmas gift ideas for men, and I know I buy several of them each year for the different men in my life. When The Bluebeards Revenge got in touch with me, I was immediately drawn to their products. Mainly because it shouted “pirate” at me – and I love a pirate! I love the designed and style of their products, and that they had a contemporary, yet modern feel to them. If you know a man who loves the classic shaving experience, one of the gift sets from The Bluebeards Revenge is for them!

I often buy clothes for my husband for Christmas or his Birthday (also in December) as it’s something he rarely buys for himself these days. Before we me, he used to buy a LOT of designer gear – but then he met me, got a mortgage, got married, and he doesn’t splash his cash on designer stuff any more!
This Pretty Green t-shirt costs £34.99 from Loofes Clothing.
