Your mere presence in his life is quite frankly enough of a gift to last him a lifetime, should you deem him worthy of anything else, here’s some ideas for what to get your fella this Xmas!
Kit out his man cave
Man caves are all the rage these days. He might think it’s his sanctuary but really it’s just a place you can pack him off to with some beers and his PS4 so you can have some peace for once. Seriously, men should have to go to bed at the same times as toddlers! You can’t let the king in your life go thirsty so its only right that his man cave is kitted out with the king of beers. This Husky Budweiser fridge (exclusive to Currys) means he’ll always have a cold one to hand – it can store 40 cans too so that’ll deffo keep him quiet for a while!
Bring out his hunter gatherer
In reality he might struggle to hunt and gather toast but at least he can massage the ego of his inner cave man. The is billed as the worlds best knife sharpener so whether he’s planning on skinning a wooly mammoth or doing some whittling or even just chopping the tomatoes he’s gonna have super sharp equipment to do it. Plus it comes in black, gold and copper so it’ll even match the kitchen….
The Love Of His Life
Sure, you might think you’re the love of his life but deep down you know it’s not true. You know it, he knows it, the lads down the pub know it. He fell in love as soon as he was old enough to kick a football round and there ain’t no woman in the world is ever gonna take it’s place. No matter what team he supports (and if it’s anything other than Liverpool then fuck him off) you can get a fan box from myfanaticbox.com for £45.00 with a range of products in there worth at least £65 – so he’ll be spoilt for choice with coasters, hats, scarves, towels, t-shirts all adorned with his one true love. Takes all the guesswork out of it for you. Good news – enter SCOUSEBIRD at checkout and you can get 10% off all orders, no matter what team her supports.
Why he’ll love it: No explanation necessary.
Make him prove his love
We’ve covered giving him the love of his life but now it’s time to get some (fun) revenge by making him prove his love to you. The family edition of the classic Mr & Mrs board game (available from John Lewis) mixed with friends, Christmas and a bit of ‘Christmas cheer’ will guarantee a night of laughter and hopefully no arguments as he proves that sometimes he does actually listen to you and you win the best couple out of all of your mates. I’m not saying you should revise beforehand or anything, but it wouldn’t hurt. As suggested with the title this is the family version and you can even get the kids involved as it’s suitable for ages 10 and up…
Why he’ll love it: It’s a laugh
Is it even Christmas if your fella doesn’t get a bottle of his favourite tipple? It is Christmas so you don’t just wanna pick up any old crap. You want something special. Duppy Share golden Caribbean rum can be bought in Sainsburys but it looks like it’s from some high end artisan booze website and that’s what’s key. The pretty, colourful bottle is aesthetically pleasing while what’s inside is the best of the best. A Duppy is a Carribbean ghost with a penchant for rum and the Share is the best blends of rum taken from all over the islands meaning what’s inside that bottle is cherry picked.
Why he’ll love it: It’s RUM!
This is really a gift that’s in both of your interests as let’s face it, you know you borrow his razors on the sly. Save him the trauma of blunt razors and cuts by sorting him out with a razor subscription service. Dorco have a range of razors he can have delivered regularly in the post meaning he’ll always have a fresh sharp new one to hand meaning y̶o̶u̶’̶l̶l̶ ̶n̶e̶v̶e̶r̶ ̶h̶a̶v̶e̶ ̶c̶u̶t̶ ̶k̶n̶e̶e̶s̶ ̶a̶n̶d̶ ̶i̶n̶g̶r̶o̶w̶n̶ ̶h̶a̶i̶r̶s̶ he’ll never cut his face and end up with ingrown hairs and stubble rash again… I personally think The Dorco classic is a really gorgeous, classy looking razor (it’s not available on the subscription service BUT it is compatible with all the subscription razor heads).
If your man has taken November a little bit too far and now insists on sporting a full on face rug then it’s only right and proper that he gets to take proper care of it. This fancy grooming set from Hawkins & Brimble is full of all the goodness he needs to pamper himself and have a bit of ‘me time’ (the relaxing kind not the rude kind). Available from Boots.
Why he’ll love it: The chic but also very manly gift box will make him feel dead dead special.
A role model to aspire to
Woman or man, old or young, there’s one man we universally love and one we should all hope to be more like; David Attenborough. He shook the world this year with his Blue Planet II series and I dunno about you, but i haven’t stopped thinking about it since. This is a boss present (that’s also a little bit of a present for everyone else in the household too) that’ll he’ll love to watch again and again and wonder at the beauty of the world all while listening to our David’s dulcet tones. Bliss. Available from Amazon.
Why he’ll love it: It’ll make him wanna get off his arse and save the planet.

Bath bomb – pour homme
Men love baths too! If a sparkly pink bath bomb would damage his fragile masculinity too much then why not get him a bath bomb ‘for him’. Although you’ll wanna get in the bath with him because it smells just like fit fellas…
Why he’ll love it: He gets to still be a ‘real’ man, while having a luxury relaxing bath.
