We’ve found some inventive, weird, wonderful and bizarre gifts for men this Christmas. Step outside your comfort zone and find gifts for men that are practical, nonsensical and fun! From a high quality backpack that won’t let him down to flip flops that eat his feet, we have something for every man. Buckle up, here we go…
The Thule Vea Backpack 25L is a rucksack-style backpack designed to transition between the gym and work while keeping active and professional gear separate. Available in black, light navy and deep teal. It’s big but roomy, and ideal for the city or country. We love it.
We chose a Manchester United nostalgic phone case and we love it. It provides protection while taking him back to the 90’s (when the team were formidable). For loyal supporters this Christmas. It’s worth noting that all teams are featured, so if he’s jumped ship during recent events, you can choose another football team.
The Fakeaway manual from Haynes is the best cookbook for men we’ve found. He can recreate his favourtie takeaways easily and without fuss, in the format of the old car manuals. Easy to follow, simple to create, any cook will love this.
Alpkit Bike Bag
The Alpkit bike bag fits any bike and provides much needed storage for a phone, snacks, cash or first aid. It’s an ideal present for a cylcist and comes in a range of colours.
Day 2 promises to iron and refresh clothes from a bottle. It’s great if staying at friend’s houses over Christmas. It smells fantastic and really does do what it says on the tin. This is going to be a household name in 2019 as people realise the benefits of this super fabric refresher.
Langley’s Old Tom Gin
weet, spiced undertones which makes it a must-have for the festive period. The story of Old Tom is intrinsically linked with that of England as gin consumption in 17th century England was beginning to have a massive impact on the social fabric of the city and government efforts to stem the flow of gin forced its production and sale underground. It was a style which stopped been produced in 1970s but has recently seen a revival. Langley’s brown bottle is in keeping with the gin’s story and it is available at Ocado – £25
Fawlty Towers Boxset
No one would turn away a complete box set of Fawlty Towers, if they would, they need to have a few words with their sense of humour. A great way to while away the Christmas Days. Perfect hangover viewing.
Only Fools and Horses Boxset
Whether he’s 18 or 80 he’ll love the complete collection of Only Fools and Horses from the BBC.
Next Base 412gw Dashcam
Next Base make the best dashcams, we really haven’t found any that sport the same high quality and durability.
Bamboo Slate from Wacom
This is our product of the year, it’s an incredible tool for any person who draws or works at a computer. Even if he just doodles he’ll love the magic pad that takes creations and puts them on screen. It’s a must for anyone who works online, and we can’t stop playing with it. It’s amazing.
Beer Making Kit from Find Me a Gift
Find Me a Gift have a range of gifts for men and we love this complete beer making kit. Who wouldn’t want to make their own beer for the New Year? It has everything he needs to create the perfect brew.
Coddies – foot flops, fish flops
We laughed at these but really, they’re extremely comfortable. It may be the wrong time of year but as soon as spring arrives he’ll love putting out the rubbish in these (yes we’re being extremely sexist!) You’ll also love to pinch these to nip outside for logs and coal. They’re definitely a conversation starter!
After Drink Supplements
These have been causing quite a stir in the office, mainly because they seem to work. Packed full of essential vitamins lost during drinking, these are the ideal stocking filler at Christmas.
Zippo Leather Washbag
Zippo have astounded us with their expanding range of products. We love this wash bag the most. It’s roomy and stylish while being durable and practical too, everything any man wants in a gift.
Mainline Menswear Superdry Hoodie
Mainline have a wide range of menswear from the best brands. We love this Superdry hoody and it’s under £50!
Blink Smarthome Security Camera
We’ve tested a lot of home security cameras and have decided that Blink is the very best. He will love this for Christmas as he can point it towards his shed, his tools, his bike or even his car then manage it all from his smartphone. It’s so easy to set up. A great gift that keeps on giving.
We reviewed the Leesa mattress and loved it so it’s no surprise we like the Leesa pillow. It is rather firm, so suitable for those who like substance to their cushions on the bed. It moulds to your head and is cool to the touch. A great pillow for serious sleeping.
Varta Night Cutter Torch
Varta make the best torches and now they’ve expanded into a range of rechargeable batteries too. We love the night cutter torch, it’s strong, it’s durable and it’s bright, everything you need in a torch.
Oppo suits have a wide array of suits that are a break from the norm. We chose the Marvel suit as it will be an apt outfit for our January visit to comic con!
