Looking for some gift ideas for him this Christmas? We’ve got you covered with a roundup of our favourite gifts for men. Take a look below at our suggestions.
Peaky Blinders IPA, Glass & Cap Gift Set – £25
Want to feel like part of the Peaky Blinders? now you can as Sadler’s Brewing Co releases a fantastic gift pack which contains 2 x 500ml Peaky Blinder Black IPA, 1 x Limited Edition stemmed glass and 1 x blinder cap. John from our team tried and said: For a gift set I expected it not to contain just as much as it does, the IPA beers were hoppy, had a good fruit taste and smooth texture and pouring it into my Peaky Blinders themed glass I honestly felt like part of the Tommy Shelby gang. The cap is made to a very high standard which surprised me as the set £25 and I would have expected to pay around £20 for it alone. Overall fans of the ITV show will love one of these under their tree.

Box Of Favours – £11.99
These beautifully designed box is full of favour cards with a fun contract to sign. John said “I really thought the Box Of Favours was a great fun idea, you simply fill our 5 favours, sign the fun contract and give them as a gift. Then when they give you favour card back you do the favour. I thought this was a great and fun way to give the gifts your friends and family really want or it could be something silly like ‘You have to make me a coffee every day this week or you need to bake cookies for everyone’. I absolutely loved it and will definitely be giving these as a gift!”

Liz Earle The Barbershop Trio Gift Set – £38
Get a smooth shave with this carefully selected collection for men. John from our team said: “I’m always looking to try different shaving products that don’t dry out my skin and leave me skin feeling hydrated so I was keen to try this team. First I used the Cleanse & polish with the cloth by applying this to my face and gentle used the cloth to polish off the cream, I liked this as it left my skin feeling really clean and hydrated. Then as per the instructions I applied the shaving moisturiser and my skin felt so soft and hydrated and there was no strong smell to it so didn’t irritate my skin at all.
I also tried the sensitive shave cream, I dispensed a small amount onto my hand and added a little water
then rubbed the cream onto my bread, it didn’t irritate my skin and smelled really nice. I used my razor and gave me a clean shave without drying out my skin. I will be using this again and again, great kit!”

Monopoly Cheaters Edition
Monopoly Cheaters Edition is the ultimate board game to play any cheater at their own game. Mandy from the team said “We all tried this in the office and have to say it is hilarious trying to figure out if someone is cheating at Monopoly or not. The aim of the game was to try and get the most property, hotels and money but there was a twist, as at any point of play you could try and cheat and if you got away with the cheat, you can carry on but if you do get caught then it’s off to jail! This game really is perfect for anyone who thinks their the ultimate cheat!”

Dorco Classic is the blade that only ever needs the blade head replaced. John from our team was keen to try this. John said “Firstly I loved the fact it came in it’s own gift box, it looked so classy and polished. Looking inside the box was the blade and handle which was in black, I took it out and it felt comfortable to hold. Using the blade was amazing, it didn’t cut or dry out my skin and really glided easily. Dorco Classic gave a really great close shave and left my skin feeling hydrated. This is one of my favourites!”

We asked John to give his opinion on the set. John said: “Lager is something I like to indulge in from time to time, especially over Christmas, but I often find myself sticking to the same ones which can become boring. This gift set comes with three bottles of Paolozzi lager, a glass, beer mats & a Paolozzi art print.

Black Leopard Skincare Set For Men – Prices Start From £8.99
Winter can be fairly harsh on our face causing dryness and chapped skin so John from our team was keen to give these Black Leopard skincare products a try. John said “I have fairly sensitive skin so at winter in particular I do get dry skin on my face, I tried the 2 in 1 shave gel cleanser and placed a small amount on my hand and used this as my shaving gel which didn’t dry out my skin and gave me a really good shave. I tried the face scrub which is my favourite, the scrub removed any dead skin but didn’t dry me face out at all and actually left me feeling fresh and hydrated. Lastly I used the moisturiser which again hydrated my skin and after a few uses did feel firmer – perfect for those party night outs!”
