For The Men Who Are Difficult To Buy For – Gift Guide

Well, my final Christmas gift guide for this year has officially landed. I don’t know about you but I always find the men in my life particularly difficult to buy for.

Men’s waterproof jacket

As I mentioned in my ladies gift guide, the UK winter always brings with it, unpredictable weather and so a ‘sensible jacket’ is always worth having. This Men’s waterproof jacket from Blacks is a great all-rounder. The North Face waterproof jacket is fully waterproof so will keep the lucky owner dry inside and out. It has an adjustable, stow-away hood and a stormflap to provide extra protection from the elements. It also adjustment points that allow you to create a tailored fit. Men’s North Face jackets are not only stylish but really good value for money. Find this and a range of men’s waterproof jackets at Millets.

Personalised Men’s Leather Bracelet

I love men’s bracelets. There is something about their sturdy and rugged appearance that makes them appealing. This bracelet is made from treated, hard-wearing woven leather, giving it an appealingly informal yet really high-quality look. It closes with an eye-catching gold magnetic clasp, which can be engraved with any initials of your choice (up to 3). The overall effect oozes effortless style he’ll love, and he’ll look great wearing it every day too! This would make a great gift for Dad from the kids. You can find it at findmeagift.co.uk.

Beard grooming kit

Beards are so popular at the moment, my other half has had one for ages now and he honestly wouldn’t be himself without anymore. Who knew that to keep a beard looking smart, you do actually have to groom it! This beard grooming kit is a thoughtful idea and could be a subtle hint if perhaps the grooming isn’t going quite so well?
