It can be hard to find presents for brothers, fathers, sons… Whether it’s for Father’s Day, Christmas, a birthday or just because, they can be tricky to buy for.
If they have a particular hobby or interest, then you’ve probably got an idea of what to get them. But what do you get if you’re lacking inspiration or they can’t think of anything they want?
I’ve got a fantastic collection of gift ideas here that would be perfect for the man in your life. Some of these gifts are not specifically for men, but I’m sure that your male friends and relatives will love them. If you’re still looking for more ideas, here are some more Gift Ideas for Him from a previous gift guide.
So let’s start off this gift guide with a classic men’s present – socks!
Yes, socks are the perennial gift idea, even if they’re a bit of a joke gift in my family. I really love these socks from Quiet Rebellion though. They combine a classic black sock with a really funky sole, which is ideal if the gift recipient works in a more traditional office.
Quiet Rebellion socks are made from soft brushed cotton with a touch of nylon for durability, and they come in single pairs or box sets. And there’s a wide range of designs, so you’re bound to find something suitable. Click here to see the range available*
And you’ll find a wide range of gifts and accessories for men at Dobell – including these nifty little cufflinks.
They are made from genuine threepenny bits, and have a solid, high quality feel. They would make a thoughtful gift for someone who likes vintage style, or who remembers pre-decimal coins!
There are many other styles of cufflinks available from Dobell, and they also carry a wide range of other accessories for men and boys.
If you saw my Gift Guide for Beauty Lovers, then the Make Your Own Bath Bomb set from Naissance may well have caught your eye.
Naissance also have this massage oil gift set which is ideal for loosening stressed shoulders. It comes with a wooden massager and a rosemary and hemp massage oil – perfect for easing knots of tension.
Or if you are buying for a football lover, then why not take a look at the Art of Football.
The Art of Football have a range of t-shirts and sweatshirts, all themed around the beautiful game. They take iconic photos like this one of Johann Cruyff, and turn them into gorgeous pieces of artwork.
You can choose from a wide range of football teams, which also includes some national teams. England fans can pick from the ‘50 Years of Hurt‘ range, and even select their own 5 players to build their own England shirt. The Art of Football have also branched out into other sports like boxing.
The t-shirts are a really good quality heavyweight cotton, and come in very attractive packaging. They’re a novel gift which I’m sure will be really popular for a sports fan.
Or if your sports fan prefers to display their allegiance on their wall, you can also buy framed and unframed prints and even an A3 canvas.
Of course, aftershave and other male grooming products are also popular gift ideas. And the Perfume Shop have a fantastic range of men’s aftershaves, fragrances and gift sets. I love this Gucci Guilty Pour Homme. It has a light, slightly floral fragrance with notes of Orange Blossom, Patchouli and Lavender – it’s ideal for any man who wants an unusual, non-conformist fragrance.
I love to look for gifts from classic brands when I’m buying presents for the men in my family. Gillette is one of the classic brands in men’s grooming, and they have a wide range of gift sets to choose from. This Gillette gift set* ties in with the Justice League film and would be a great gift for any DC comic book aficionado.
And this dry wax wallet from Barbour is a perfect example of classic styling from a well known brand. It combines the olive green waxed cotton that Barbour are so well known for, with a soft brown leather interior.
The wallet has eight card slots and a compartment for notes, and comes in a sturdy Barbour gift box .
This is just one of the selection of gifts for men that you can find at Mainline Menswear. They carry many well known brands like Hugo Boss, Paul Smith and Pretty Green.
Whether you are after classically stylish or modern trends, they are sure to have something you’ll love.
And my final selection for this gift guide is from another classic brand – Zippo.
You probably know them better for the classic Zippo windproof lighters, which are still a great gift idea. Zippo lighters are perfect for lighting fires and camping cookers. This make them definitely worth considering for anyone who loves outdoor pursuits.
But Zippo have other gift ideas available, like their Hand Warmers, wallets, and this gorgeous hip flask. If you’re buying a gift for an outdoors person, I would definitely recommend taking a look at the Zippo range.
