Christmas will be here before you know it and there comes the annual question to your spouse: “What would you like for Christmas this year?” and the answer is mostly down the lines of: “I don’t need anything/I don’t know”!! Buying for a male relative or partner/husband is probably the most trickiest presents to tick off the list. Thankfully for me this year my husband actually supplied me with some good successions so I am having an easy time! One of his wishes was a skateboard which Santa will defiantly NOT bring him after all it’s enough to deal with his football related injuries ever now and then! I also have the dilemma that Mr. C.’s Birthday is on the 7th December which is pretty close to Christmas so its double the presents and ideas to think about!
*Star Wars Lumi Art from Paladone RRP: 24.99
Mr. C. is a huge Star Wars Geek and with him now owning his very own Man Shed in the back garden of our new house he can now fill it with his beloved vintage Star Wars Figures collection and to add some more Star Wars Joy in his own 4 walls he will get this pretty cool 12 inch illuminated wall art which celebrates the 40th anniversary of the original classic Star Wars. It’s actually one of his favourite images and he already owns a t-shirt with the same print so I was delighted to have found this in the Paladone shop (which seriously is every star wars and geeks heaven!) This light up canvas can either be powered by USB (cable included) or battery (3x AAA – not included).
*Burgundy Velvet Jacket from Dobell RRP: £99.99
Who doesn’t like to dress up smart for Christmas? Mr. C. has a passion for dressing up and I can see himself wearing this slick burgundy velvet jacket from Dobell for our annual Christmas Drinks with friends and family. The regular fit velvet jacket has a shawl lapel, single breast pocket, slanted jetted pockets with flaps and 1 button close. I love the 4 button detail on the cuff and the velvet material is soft and the jacket has a very high quality finish look to it the inside is lined with the most gorgeous black patterned satin material. It will also make the most perfect accessory for our annual ‘Boxing Day Fancy Dress Extravaganza’ held by Finns Godfather where the whole Family dresses up to a theme in mostly homemade costumes, enjoy a nice meal, good company and games. I can’t say more just yet but keep your eyes peeled on boxing day on my Instagram where I will most certainly post a picture of us all dolled up to the nines with our fantastic costumes! Dobell specialises in fine tailoring at affordable prices and offers the very best in style for all occasions I also love their wide range of Shirts for all occasions and can see myself buying Mr. C. some as a present in the future!
*Star Wars Stormtrooper Vacuum Flask from Paladone RRP: £16.99
With us moving further away from Mr. C.’s workplace at the airport he now has a 1.5hr one way drive ever evening before his nightshift! And with me gifting him a coffee machine last Christmas he can now save himself a few quid with no more buying coffee on route and instead filling up his cool 500ml stainless steel vacuum flask with iridescent finish which will keep his coffee warmer for longer when travelling on the daily commute to and from the night job on the Death Star or as we like to call her “Betsy”.
Intempo Console Turntable from The Range RRP: £99.99
As mentioned above Mr. C. is very pleased to have finally own a Men Shed and his priced possession of old vinyls are currently kept in there. But those are no use without the perfect record player to play all the tunes so he asked for this sleek, retro design turntable console from The Range which has built-in battery and speakers and even supports bluetooth playback. It’s a great statement piece looking just like a vintage 1960/70’s deck but with all the functionality of modern audio devices. Built-in speakers allow you to get playing straight away, but it can be hooked up to other systems with the RCA line output to give you superior playback. The turntable also has a 45 rpm adapter, so can play singles as well as LPs and best of all its currently 20£ off at The Range!
*Navy Superdry Lineman Gift Set from Mainline Menswear RRP: £25.00
I don’t know about your partner/husband but mine is always searching for his belt the minute when we are already supposed to be on the road! So this Superdry Lineman Gift Set Wallet And Belt in Navy from Mainline Menswear featuring a navy wallet and belt is the perfect present for him! The Wallet in the gift set comes in very handy too because he doesn’t like to use his normal wallet when going out for a drink just in case he looses it so the navy wallet who has a velcro fasting and has the Superdry logo on the front has also got a handy keyring hoop.
Have you started on presents for your other half yet? I hope this Gift Guide might have helped to find the right present to put under the christmas tree this year for him! Happy Christmas Shopping!
