Christmas Gift Guide: For Him

I have zero problems shopping for the ladies in my life (as you may have seen for my For Her Gift Guide). There are endless amount of luxurious items that I know they wouldn't be able to justify for themselves but would love to be treated with! But I do struggle shopping for men. I insist on a detailed list from Mr BMB to ensure that I get him something that he'll love. However, along with his main pressie, I want to get him a few surprises so I thought I'd share with you some ideas I've had for him and the other chaps I'm shopping for.

Men do enjoy a bit of luxury in the bathroom so a lovely gift set of some shower gel, moisturiser or body spray will always be welcomed, especially as most the men I buy for wouldn't splash out on these themselves. I like to pick a brand they recognise, so this Reiss Mens S Duo (£15 Boots) is an easy win.

Men's washrags do get a bit trashed from being in the bottom of a sports bag, so a nice new one will smarten them up again. This Hillingdon wash bag from Ted Baker (£24 Boots) which is also filled with some goodies to keep them smelling good too.

A personalised gift does make them the feel special, and these leather luggage tags from Aspinal are smart and sophisticated to boot. Aspinal Black Saffiano set of two luggage tags £35 and an extra £15 for personalisation.

Feeling brave? Christmas and birthdays are an ideal time to update their wardrobe with items that your approve of too. Jumpers, coats and accessories make the perfect gift. This quilted jacket from Boden (£110) is a perfect gift for the traditional english gent and the red zip gives it some fashion credentials as well.

Cheap and cheerful christmas jumpers are the type you buy yourself, but a proper wool knit is so much nicer. Why not treat your chap to a festive wooly that he will wear for years to come. I love this Novelty Running Stag Crew Jumper £45 from fat face, this one has sold out online, but is still available in stores.

As well as updating their wardrobe, Christmas is a great time to give their undies draw a make over, so treat them to some new ones and then you can mysteriously 'lose some in the wash' that have seen better days. This Chetwood Boxers Set from Jack Wills at £25 will do the job nicely, and there are lots of other colours and pattens to choose from.

So I hope this has given a little inspiration for the harder people to buy for this year!
