Gift Guide for The Man
Christmas is creeping up so quickly, it's only a matter of weeks away now and I am rather behind on my Christmas shopping... I wish I could be one of those people who already have everything purchased, wrapped up and waiting under the tree by the 1st of December but unfortunately I never will be!
I love shopping for other people (maybe even more than getting presents) and The Man is my favourite person to buy for, so I thought I'd put together a bit of a gift guide of boy things just in case you're struggling too.
My boyfriend is obsessed with a few certain brands, I could pretty much buy him anything from them and he would be happy. Edwin and Carhartt are two of those brands so this Edwin Marvin t-shirt from Mainline Menswear and Carhartt Raglan sweater from Coggles are easy Christmas present wins!
It's always good to throw in a few geeky gifts to fuel his nerdy side and the Batman Visual History book is a great present for any DC fan. The Man is obsessed with films, it's his job as well as his hobby (our house is full of blu-rays and steelbooks joy), so something a little bit special like the Steven Spielberg Director's Collection of eight of his biggest films is perfect.
Smellies are a must at Christmas (as well as the obligatory socks which are such a given that I haven't even included them) and I always keep The Man supplied with Molton Brown Black Peppercorn Body Wash from Mankind, it smells amazing and just how men should smell!
The Man is a man of many passions, he likes to call himself a collector but he's definitely a hoarder, records and watches are in his top 5. He's easily pleased with a record by one of his favourite bands like Future Islands or a watch like this Nixon number.
For an even bigger present, Mainline Menswear are also giving you the chance to win a Belstaff jacket and Top Gear goodies, dream! For more details and to enter, click here.
How is your Christmas shopping going? I hope this helps if you're struggling for manly gifts!
