Christmas Gifts for Him: Top Gifts for Every Budget
Have you started Christmas shopping yet? With Black Friday almost upon us, Christmas is now just around the corner, yet many of us will be doing our shopping a little differently this year. That may lead you to wonder, with a festive season unlike any other, just how do you find the perfect gifts for him online?
We all know that men can be notoriously difficult to buy presents for — or some men, at least. Fortunately, with our insight and top tips, it doesn’t need to be that way.
Last week, we shared our top Christmas gift ideas for women. In this blog post, we reveal our top Christmas gifts for men in 2020, with present ideas for every budget.
Although high-value gifts are a great way to show someone how much they mean to you, those smaller, thoughtful gifts can also make fantastic Christmas presents. With that being said, here are our top stocking filler ideas for men.
Is your special man a Jamie-Oliver-in-the-making? Keep him busy this Christmas with a cookbook packed full of tasty recipes. Depending on his level of expertise, you could get anything from a beginner-level book such as Jamie Oliver’s “5 Ingredients: Quick & Easy Food” to more advanced recipe books such as The Hairy Bikers’ “British Classics”. The best thing about this gift? If you live with the recipient then you’ll be treated with tons of delicious food, too!
Grooming kits are an excellent idea and no, we don’t mean a Lynx Africa gift-box from Boots. Treat your man to a luxurious grooming kit this Christmas, from beard oil to shaving kits, skincare to shampoo, and everything in-between. For an extra special gift that keeps on giving, you could even buy a grooming subscription box such as the Dollar Shave Club.
When you think of a Christmas gift, a leather wallet might not be the first thing that comes to mind. However, a good quality wallet can last years if it’s maintained properly, making for a great present. For a budget-friendly yet high quality wallet, shop at a reliable supplier such as Next, ASOS or Debenhams and you won’t go wrong. Or, if you can stretch your budget, why not treat him to a designer wallet from the likes of Gucci, Alexander McQueen or Burberry?
If he’s into video games, then there’s plenty to choose from this Christmas. In fact, with both the PS5 and Xbox Series X launching in November 2020, this is one of the biggest festive seasons for gaming in the last decade. Not only this, but many blockbuster titles are also launching new games towards the back-end of 2020 including; Fifa 21, Cyberpunk 2077, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, to name a few.
Higher Budget Gifts
For anyone looking to spend a bit more on their loved ones this Christmas, there are also many higher-budget gift options for men. Below are our top pricey picks.
Whether he’s a fan of football, rugby, basketball, cricket, or any other sport, the latest jersey of his favourite team always makes a great Christmas present. They’re a great focal point for any outfit; as demonstrated by Roddy Ricch when he built an outfit around his Toronto Raptors jersey earlier this year. Many teams are also releasing classic jerseys this year; for example, with Adidas’ handmade Human Race football jerseys.
From a Louis Vuitton belt to an MCM backpack, designer accessories can add a subtle sense of luxury to any outfit. So instead of spending £1,000+ on a Gucci track jumper, why not instead treat your loved one to a Gucci scarf for just a quarter of the price? Not only does it ooze luxury but it’s practical and will keep him warm, too!
Vodka? Cognac? Gin? Regardless of your loved one’s drink of choice, a premium bottle of alcohol will be sure to impress him this Christmas. From Patrón to Hennessey, Au Vodka to Grey Goose, there’s literally an endless selection to choose from. If you’re not completely sure what his favourite alcohol is, you could even treat him to a set of miniatures or an alcoholic advent calendar — Good Housekeeping has already ranked them for you.
Jewellery — The Perfect Christmas Gift For Him
If you really want to say thanks to that special man this Christmas, there’s no better gift to give him than jewellery. From iced out pendants and luxurious watches and chains and rings, there’s so many options to choose from, too.
Iced Out Hip Hop Pendants
As one of the top jewellery trends of the last decade, buying your special man an iced out hip hop pendant is sure to go down a treat this Christmas. From Kanye-esque Jesus and cross pieces to cool slogan designs, there really is something for everyone. For more inspiration, why not take a look at some of our team’s favourite styles?
Solid Gold Chains & Bracelets
If your loved one already owns a hip hop pendant, there’s no better way to show it off than with a new chain. Miami Cuban link chains are by far the most popular style amongst actual rappers, but if you would like something a little different, there’s also gold belcher chains and curb chains. The latter tend to be more affordable, making them perfect if you’re trying to buy a luxury gift for less!
Heavy Gold Rings For Men
Last but certainly not least, heavy gold rings can make a great Christmas present for men, even if you don’t know his exact ring size. There’s a huge range of options available too, whether your loved one prefers wearing rings for formal occasions or casualwear. You could even blow his mind by sharing some ring-wearing etiquette secrets, too! For example, did you know that the popularity of pinky rings was mainly fueled by ‘70s and ‘80s gangster films such as “Scarface?
