Great Present Ideas for Men

Premium Toiletries

Check out the supermarket aisles with men's gifts and I’m confident you will find lots of toiletry gift sets, but they won’t necessarily be products they would use or anything special. I love Hodges because it has quality products that I know my partner will enjoy using and they come beautifully packaged. A definite level above what you will find in the supermarkets and they will look stylish in the bathroom.

Sweet Treats

If you are buying for someone with a sweet tooth then the Yumbles website is definitely worth looking at. The website pulls together products from lots of small independent food and drink producers so you can find the perfect present from vegan macarons, a treat box or gin gifts. The biggest challenge is choosing from the huge range on offer! Many of the gifts will be made fresh to order and have a short shelf life so if ordering for a particular date make sure they will arrive on time.

Sports History Book

These compilations of newspaper histories are great for sports lovers, plus they can be personalised with a name on the front and a short message inside which makes them a perfect gift. We were sent the English History of Cricket Book which goes back to 1906 including contemporary news reports from all the English cricket key moments.

There are also collections available for rugby, cycling and many popular football teams. You can have a basic option in brown leatherette or choose upgrades including: black leather, colour from 2006 and gold embossing.

Leather Belt

Whether you think of it as a virtual hug that they can wear to work or a practical, but beautiful present they will use everyday a belt makes a great present for men. This Ted Baker design makes a clever choice because it is reversible two sided leather: both brown and black. The beautiful belt is just one from a range of options available from Mainline Menswear where they stock clothing and accessories from 85 designer brands.

A Family Day Out

A day out at the zoo with family makes a lovely present full of happy memories.  Giving them a voucher for a great day out means you have flexibility about when to go.  They can even exchange it for a treat just for them if they want, but you might want to stay quiet about that. Buy A Gift have a range of options for days out all over the country.

A Fun and Stylish Shirt

Frangipani design 'beach to bar' shirts in London which are sold around the world. The Indian cotton produced on a power-loom results in a strong yet soft fabric which wicks away moisture and helps keep the wearer cool. They have a special tapered fit (slim on the sides but loose around the middle), but are generously sized making them fun and stylish. You can currently get 15% off your first order if you sign up to their newsletter. This shirt is in the Blue, Blue, Electric Blue print.

Bluetooth Earphones

The genius of bluetooth earphones is they aren't that noticeable when they are being worn so Dad can listen to his favourite music or podcast without the children noticing he isn't actually listening to them. It gives Dad the gift of a break and I've also found they keep my partner entertained while doing the washing up, definitely a bonus all round.

A Small Cute Keepsake

While all the practical presents make perfect gifts there is always space for a small keepsake and I love this one. The cute dinosaur magnet comes in a matchbox making it a sweet and space saving gift.

A Family Print

I'm a big fan of family prints and this bear family print from The Drifting Bear Company really appeals to me because you can have as many bears as you need and the children bears come in a choice of 4 sizes to help reflect your family. You can also choose what to have in your two lines of text making the print as unique as your family. Many companies on Etsy just send you a digital print to print at home, but this company actually send you the product which I prefer.
