There is always the usual socks and aftershave to fall back on but it leaves a lingering feeling that there may have been a more original gift idea out there that he could appreciate. We are hoping that this list of 5 great mens gift ideas can inspire you to find a gift with a little more originality and yet still within an accessible budget.
Our first suggestion is for nut lovers. This stylish yet practical nutcracker is so ornamental it can be left on display all year round and not just at Christmas. It has a great screw down mechanism which is easy to use and a handy shell catcher so that nut shells are kept neatly in the dish. With this solid cast iron nutcracker he can crack away to his hearts content as it will crack the smallest hazelnut and the largest walnut and any type of nut he loves, except you of course!! ( We're not saying you're nuts or anything) And he certainly won't if this arrives in his gift selection.
Our second gift choice is for the man who takes his grooming seriously and yet doesn't want to give up his facial hair. This cast pewter moustache and beard comb is the take anywhere comb that is discreet enough to be popped into a top pocket and manly enough to use on a regular basis. We just love the moustache decoration and the chin sized body of the comb, it's got to be the next tool in his toolbox or certainly his travel bag.
For the man who likes a beer or two these cast wall mounted bottle openers need to be in every room. They are perfect for use both indoors and out, placed near to fridges, doorways, on tables, dressers or even chairs they can mean the difference between running around looking for a bottle opener and always knowing where to open your beer. The perfect party must have too, guests will appreciate the fact that they can crack a beer as often as they want to without rummaging around your kitchen. so how many do you need to keep him happy?
Does your man love to be outdoors? Gardening, walking or generally getting his boots muddy and then walking through the house while he finds somewhere to sit and take his boots off. Well this cast iron Beetle Boot Pull could solve all of your problems and his. It is decorative and looks great outside your front door and is perfect for removing those muddy wellingtons or shoes before you step foot in the house. It is simple to use and effective, with no bending down at all. Boot jacks like this could be the gift to save his back and yours.
Our final and 5th choice for an original Christmas gift is for the man who just likes to kick back and is a little on the lazy side at times. These great humorous tin signs allow you to express yourself without causing too much offence (we hope). Let him become a member of the Lazy Other Half Club which allows him to only be lazy on days which don't end with a Y. We're sure he'll appreciate putting his feet up this Christmas at least.
We are on a great gardening theme this week.
