Ultimate gift guide for Him|Blogmas Day 8

Hey everyone and welcome to Blogmas day 8. As you can tell by the title, I am going to be giving you the ultimate gift guide for Him, I know buying gifts for men is really difficult and it can be hard to think of presents when it comes to Christmas so I thought I’d try and make your job easier by putting together a gift guide, I’ve managed to come up with a few idea’s which I’ve used when purchasing for the man in my life and the men in my family. I’ve put all the gifts into categories to make it easier to understand and I have also made some recommendations of gifts.


A gadget is a mans best friend and a man would be happy with an gadget he receives. This can range from a new Ipad if you wanted to push the boat to a nice set of headphones, the choices are endless. Last year, I brought my boyfriend a new video game which went down a treat so if the person your buying for has a console then this would be a good shout.

Another thing that would make an amazing gift is a camera or some accessories for their console, these will definitely be presents that they would use and I’d definitely rather spend that extra cash to get something their going to use all year round. Some suggestions on places to have a look round for are Argos and MenKind.


Something that always springs to mind when thinking of a gift for him is aftershave, this always feels like the safest option to go for especially if you know their favourite aftershave. You don’t have to spend a lot of Aftershave either as I know Next have some really nice smelling aftershaves. Another amazing gift idea would be an aftershave gift set, these are a really good present as they usually come with shower gel which is a really nice present in itself.

If you wanted to splash out on an aftershave gift, Debenhams and The perfume shop are a good place to have a look. They usually have a wide selection of aftershaves and gift sets so you definitely won’t have any trouble finding one.

A watch

If you wanted to treat the man your buying for, a watch is an amazing idea. Jewellery is always a sentimental and amazing gift for a women so a watch is a perfect alternative for a man. I know purchasing a watch isn’t something men tend to do so buying them a watch they’ve always wanted would definitely make the perfect gift.

The best places to have a look for a watch which also have amazing customer service when it comes to finding the right watch, would be Goldsmiths and John Lewis. I know if I went to purchase a watch for my boyfriend I wouldn’t have the slightest clue what to get so having some help in store would be amazing.


Something that a man always needs is clothing and it definitely makes the perfect gift. There are so many amazing clothing gifts that you could purchase for a man, a hoodie, a t-shirt, a coat, some trousers, the choice is endless and you can never go wrong with what you get. Something that you could also consider is shoes, has the man your purchasing for wanted some trainers/shoes for a while? why don’t you surprise him with some, that would definitely go down a treat.

Some of the best places I’d definitely recommend for men’s clothing is Primark as they have a wide selection of clothing that would be ideal with any male which are affordable so you could get several gifts. An alternative is JD sports as they have some really nice things in at the moment.


There are definitely some accessories which would definitely make a great gift, these include; a wallet, a bag, passport holder and a key ring. Something that I got my boyfriend for his birthday was a key ring which had our anniversary which went down really well, he loved it so something similar would definitely make an amazing gift.

Every man needs a wallet so buying a really nice one would make an amazing gift which they will use throughout the year. Another suggestion would be a bag, this isn’t only a female gift, maybe buy a backpack as every man needs to carry things around every once in a while. Maybe you could also purchase a passport holder, they have some really nice ones in New Look at the moment.

Candle’s & Toiletries

Something that tends to be known as a female gift are candles and toiletries, my boyfriend loves candles and if the male your purchasing for is anything like that then a candle or two would be perfect. You can also get some really nice candle gift sets from Yankee Candle. If you wanted to spend some more on a candle, they have some really nice scents from Jo Malone. 

In terms of toiletries, I know that The body shop and Lush have some really nice male products and they also have some unisex gift sets which would be a perfect gift.


A gift that would go down a treat with any man would be alcohol. At Christmas they usually have some really nice Alcohol gift sets which would definitely make the perfect gift. This also works as a really nice gift if your not 100% sure on what to purchase for someone as there is a very low chance that the person your buying for won’t use the alcohol at some point. Just make sure you know if the person your buying for is age appropriate for alcohol and drinks alcohol as that would be awkward.

Personalised gifts

Something I love giving as a gift is something personalised as I think it gives that added touch to an average gift. Since being with my boyfriend, I have always made sure to include one or two personalised gifts into the mix as I feel this makes it more special. Maybe you could get the male your purchasing for a customised mug.

If your searching for gifts for your boyfriend, some perfect ideas would be a key ring which I’ve previously mentioned, make a scrapbook of your time together, you could also make a jar of reasons you love the person as these are really special present’s that you don’t need to spend too much money on. I’d definitely recommend Amazon when it comes to personalised gifts.

And that’s it, that’s my ultimate gift guide for him. I really hope this helps you if you are getting some last minute bits. Thank you so much for reading,
