I thought it was about time we talk mens gift ideas, I find it quite hard buying for men especially Mark as whenever I ask he always says ‘I don’t need anything’ does anyone else’s partner always say that? It definitely makes things a lot harder when it comes to buying gifts so I thought I’d put together a little gift guide today with some great bits for that special man in your life.
Vivabox | £39.99
My first gift idea is this Vivabox, I featured on of these in my ladies gift guide the other day and mentioned they had these for men too. It’s an amazing little gift that’s perfect for someone who is super hard to buy for or a little fussy, it’s a perfume box filled with 7 fragrance samples and a gift voucher. All he needs to do is use all 7 fragrances then choose his favourite to go and get a full sized bottle with his gift voucher from The Perfume Shop, I think this is such a genius idea and it contains such great fragrances too my favourite has to be Paco Robanne One Million, swoon!
Bulldog Natural Skincare Set | £10.00
Next up we have a lovely little gift set by Bulldog, I am so giving this to my dad because he loves anything with Bulldogs on it. We used to have two Bulldogs, Molly and Arnie so he will absolutely love this even though it’s not actually a full sized bulldog. This set includes everything he needs to have a little pamper of his own; shower gel, face wash and moisturiser. A really lovely little gift set for husband, dad, brother or even grampy.
If your buying for someone who loves a new fragrance or two and you want to buy something a little different I’d recommend checking out this great set by Bluebirds Revenge, it’s not a fragrance I had heard of before but after smelling it I know it will be something Mark would like. It’s a very masculine scent with notes including; Bergamot, Basil, Jasmine, Black Tea, Watermint, Vanilla, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Oakmoss and Musk. The set includes a 100ml eau de toilette fragrance and a generous 150ml matching shower gel, a great little set that’s great if your on a budget but want something that smells and looks good.
Ted Baker Body Maintenance Kit | £12.00 £8.00
This little Ted Baker set is the perfect stocking filler, it includes an Omnium Orange Hair & Body Wash, Racing Green Hair & Body Wash, Omnium Orange Bodyspray & Racing Green Bodyspray all 50ml bottles and are the perfect travel essentials ideal if your buying for someone who travels or works away a lot. I was actually really surprised with the price of this set, it’s so well presented and comes with it’s very own wash bag. I love the bright colours, super uplifting and it’s currently on offer in Boots for just £8.00!
Finally something that’s classic, timeless and a real treat is of course a designer watch. My husband is obsessed with watches and I buy him one every year, he has quite the collection now including pieces from Micheal Kors, G shock and D & G but he has never had an Armani watch so I can’t wait to see his face on Christmas morning when he sees this as he has no idea he will be getting it. I really love this Armani watch because it’s classic design it smart and looks so chic, definitely one to wear when we are off out somewhere special. If your looking for a great watch at a fab price then I’d definitely recommend checking out Shade Station
, they have a huge variety of watches, sunglasses and jewellery at amazing prices.
