‘Tis the season to be jolly! ‘Tis the season of giving! ‘Tis the season for family and spending time with those we love. Yep, Christmas trees are up because Christmas is just around the corner and the malls are filling up with those who want to get a jump start on their shopping. And then there’s those of us who occasionally partake in a mad scramble right before the 25th. Literally fighting our way through the crowds to get the last of the best items… which are usually sold out. This leaves us fending our way through the masses to several different stores in the hopes of finding the perfect gifts. But what if you don’t know what to get? Having a helping hand with some gift decisions can make a big difference! Today we are looking at some great Christmas gift ideas for HIM, that special man in your life.
Too often we go through lists like this that have a few great options but the rest are all related to alcohol and smoking. For this list, I am not doing any of that. My partner doesn’t drink or smoke, and I’m certain that he isn’t the only one. So let’s jump straight into some great sober gifts!
Jenga / Carhartt stacking blocks game
If you don’t know what Jenga is, maybe you have been living under a rock for quite some time. It’s ok, I’ll let Wikipedia explain it anyway: “Players take turns removing one block at a time from a tower constructed of 54 blocks. Each block removed is then placed on top of the tower, creating a progressively taller, and more unstable, structure.” Carhartt stacking blocks is basically like Jenga, but way more pricy and has a slight twist. The blocks are color-coded to correspond to a dice that is thrown, so only the block of the chosen color may be removed… Pretty intense. If you have never played it before, or haven’t played for ages, do yourself a favor and get your man this awesome game that the whole family can enjoy. P.S. It’s perfect for snow days! Get the Carhartt stacking blocks here.
Digital images are great, we can take hundreds of pictures a day and go back to just keep the really good ones. But honestly, nothing beats a real photograph. A Polaroid lets you have those memories in an instant. What a super way to keep a scrapbook on the go. Better yet, they aren’t suddenly wiped out by a virus or the toddler who got hold of your phone. Get this one for hubby and live in the moment together.
Once you have experienced this, you will never want to go back. This one will totally transform the way he enjoys the gym, any physical activities or just listening to his favorite music. Some great options here are these Apple AirPods if you’re looking for the top of the line, or these Sol Republic Amps, which are fantastic quality, but not as pricey as the Apple ones.
Skincare (one of the best Christmas gift ideas for him!)
Say what now? … Oh come one, you know your man secretly likes to spoil his skin, I know mine does, so why not encourage it? It will only be beneficial in the long run. If he already has a favorite brand, stick with that. Top up his regular products and add a little something extra that he doesn’t usually purchase, like a great eye cream or the new beard wax in that range. Clueless on what to get him? Try starting here at Hey Gorgeous: They have an incredible men’s range called HG for Bros (This is what my man uses, wink wink!) Use this coupon code to get 10% off on your order: HG10-GHGVPH
And by comic books, I don’t just mean the physical books, I mean ANYTHING comic related. When it comes to comic book merchandise, we are spoilt for choice. Find some great wacky pieces for his mancave and bring out his inner geek with some of these fabulous items available at Amazon: The Batman Chess Set, Marvel Avengers Backpack, or this epic DC Comics Justice League Road Trip Board Game. Plus, Amazon has a fantastic array of T-shirts, caps, socks, and hoodies for the comic book junkie in your life.
Now you might be thinking that Lego is a toy for kids, but honestly, men don’t ever fully grow up. Charm his inner kid with this super LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron. Trust me, as far as Christmas gift ideas for him go, this one is a real winner, he will LOVE it!!
Most men love to smell good… I think they know that it’s a woman’s weakness. Love his scent this Christmas with 1 or 2 of these incredible fragrances: Bvlgari Pour Homme if he enjoys something really fresh. Consider JIMMY CHOO Man if a musky fragrance is more his thing. Sauvage by Christian Dior has a wonderful floral top note that fades into the most incredible woody scents for its middle and base notes (plus Johnny Depp uses it, so it’s obviously amazing!) And lastly, if your man smells divine in something spicier, try 1 Million FOR MEN by Paco Rabanne. 1 Million has undoubtedly been their top-selling cologne for the past 8 years.
Chili Gift Hamper
A sure win in the Christmas gift ideas for him category! A lot of men can’t get enough of chilis, I know mine can’t. As I’m writing this, our fridge currently has 3 different chili sauces in it. And there are always new ones with different intensities and flavors joining the ranks. We have come to realize that some of the best chili sauces are homemade, so a great place to find these is at the farmers and crafters markets. He’s not into chilis but loves other spices? He loves to cook? Then consider a gift hamper of rare spices.
Batman Drone (yes, probably the best of Christmas gift ideas for him)
This one ticks all the boxes. It’s a toy, it’s a novelty, it’s cool tech, and it’s Batman, what could be better? Get this ultra-cool Propel Batwing Hd Drone With Remote Controller – Black from Amazon before they run out of stock. It might be a good idea to get the extra blades for it too, they are quite cheap for a decent amount.
Is your man one with nature? loving the outdoors and all things plant-based? Then this Christmas gift idea for him is just perfect. A bonsai tree for his office and quiet place at home can keep him centered and balanced when working or needing some time out for himself.
Personally, I don’t see the appeal of a Smart Watch, but if fitness and being really active is your thing, it’s kind of essential nowadays, and your man probably loves all things tech anyway. Fitness monitoring, music storage, app functionality, and GPS tracking are all included in most of the smartwatches available today, with some even having a few more features crammed in there. The Apple Watch Series 5 is the latest release in the Apple smartwatch range and boasts some very impressive capabilities. For Samsung users, the Samsung Galaxy Smartwatch (42mm) Midnight Black is said to be the best ever smartwatch to be released thus far. Samsung says it has everything you need on your wrist and that you can leave your phone at home… well now.
Sometimes our men just don’t get enough credit or aren’t appreciated enough. Christmas is the time that we can make up for that and spoil him rotten! Anyone else noticed how the hate speech for men on social media has gone really quiet now that Christmas is approaching?? hmmm makes you wonder…
