Today on the blog I am sharing a gift guide for himself, the man in the house, the dad, the boyfriend. The items you can see above are based on things I am going to buy for my other half for Christmas. Considering he is reading my blog everyday, it means he already knows what he is getting but that’s ok. Some items on this list he asked for anyway. Hopefully this will help you find something for your hubby/fiance/boyfriend.
1 Tonic Shirt And Tie Set
As a manager he needs to be dressed smart pretty much everyday, apart from the weekends of course. And Friday it’s actually casual Friday. I find that men can never have enough shirts. Hubby has all sorts of different colours but in my opinion he has a lack of neutral coloured ones. I like the look of this shirt which comes with the tie and it goes with pretty much every suit.
Available in Next for €38
2 & 6 Textured Suit: Trousers & Jacket
I love the suits you can pick up in Next. In saying that I am surprised I have never bought one for hubby in there. He can be very picky when it comes to suits. He only has one suit and in my opinion, the job he is in, he requires AT LEAST two. I think this one is a lovely colour. I have a thing for navy coloured suits.
Trousers at €48 and Jacket at €103 available in Next
3 Babolat Racket Holder
Since we moved house, hubby is way more into his tennis and goes for a session at least once a week. I am planning to go soon too… eventually. They actually have a dome in this town’s tennis club which means I don’t even have to play outside in the wind and rain. His tennis bag is quite ancient. He deserves a new one. He has two Babolat rackets to store. The coolest feature it comes with is that you can create your own tag so your bag is unique to everybody elses. Simply go to mybabolatbag,com.
Available on http://www.prodirecttennis.com/ for £55
4 Long Sleeve Premium Waffle Grandad
Whenever I ask hubby what he wants for Christmas, all I am getting is “something practical”. Men always need clothes. Most of them hate shopping and for that reason they never have enough clothing in their press even though they tell you they do. You can never have enough jumpers especially in the cold seasons.
Available at Next for €24.50
5 ECCO business shoes
A few weeks ago hubby lost his business shoes… as you do. With the whole move going on and all, we haven’t got a chance yet to pick up a new pair. We will probably purchase these before Christmas but I would highly recommend these. These are the same ones he had before he lost them. Very comfortable and slip on. They are super light and have a flexible sole.
Available on http://shopeu.ecco.com/ie for €120
7 Philips AquaTouch AT887/16 Wet & Dry electric shaver with pop-up trimmer
AquaTouch features an inbuilt seal, AquaTec, which means that the shaver is 100% waterproof and optimised for use with shaving gel or foam for enhanced skin comfort and minimizing skin irritation. The benefit of shaving in the shower is that your pores open, allowing a closer shave, and it’s gentler on your skin too. 3 minute quick charge provides enough power for one shave, so that you are always prepared, even when the battery is empty. An energy-efficient, powerful lithium-ion battery gives you more shaves per charge. Charge it for an hour, and you’ll have up to 45 minutes of shaving time – that’s around 15 shaves.
Available at Boots for €79.99 (On sale at the moment)
8 Boss Bottled For Men Eau de Toilette Spray 50ml
A man also needs to smell good. Why not try out the classic Boss Bottled for Men.
Boss Bottled is an oriental fougere fragrance. Its fresh top notes include apple and citrus fruits. In the heart, sweeter, warmer notes of geranium, cinnamon and cloves. In the base notes, dry spicy scents of sandalwood, vetiver, cedarwood, olivewood, amber and musk create a distinctly masculine dry down. Boss Bottled is the encapsulation of Boss in a fragrance.
Available at Boots for €60 (different sizes available)
