Christmas Gift Guide - For Men

With Christmas just three weeks away, I'm now in the process publishing my annual Christmas gift guides. I really enjoy putting these together every year because they push me to think out of the box, to consider other options, and leave me feeling inspired. Earlier this week I published my Gift Guide for Women, which you can find here, but today's gift guide is focused on the men in our lives. I hope that my suggestions give you a little inspiration when it comes to gift-giving this Christmas.

Personalised Prosecco - from £16.99
I'm starting this gift guide with two products that are ideal for those who like to have a drink or two at Christmas time. It's Your Bottle offers a range of different wines, which can be personalised with your choice of label. Choose from red wines, white wines, prosecco or rose, and customise with a label suitable for the occasion that you are celebrating. I opted for a bottle of prosecco with a rather fitting, festive label, perfect for making a toast on Christmas day.

Dartington Crystal - Three Cheers for Beers Gift Set - £27.00
Give fellow beer lovers the chance to explore and indulge in different types of beer from around the world with the Dartington Three Cheers to Beers gift set. Included in the set are a classic pint glass, a stemmed Pilsner lager and a footed glass for strong, dark ales. I tend to reach for packs of beers for the blokes in my family, so this is a great alternative this year, one which I know my Father in law will really appreciate.

What's That Smell? - £24.99
As you can see by the front of the box it's described as "the party game that stinks" and just the tagline alone makes it appeal to so many blokes (and women) out there! 
It's dubbed as the first ever scent guessing party game that opens up a world of interesting smells! Guess the scent on the card correctly to win or you could be suffering the reeking ramifications of one of the deadly Stank Cards! Yuck! With over 50 smells from nice to downright nasty, What's That Smell? is a breath of fresh (and not-so-fresh) air in the party game category!

Levis Tshirt & Boxers Set - £30.00
This Levis set contains two essentials which always seem to make it under a blokes Christmas tree every year, but they are a little fancier! Inside the gift box is a cotton jersey t-shirt with a ribbed crew neck, short sleeves and a signature woven Levis logo pinch tag in the left side seam in red and white. There's also one pair of boxer briefs in black with an elasticated waistband featuring the signature Levis logo woven in white. You can purchase it online at Mainline Menswear.

Yankee Candle Amaretto Apple Elevation Candle - £23.99
Yankee Candle has just released a brand new collection of luxury candles, the Yankee Candle Elevation Collection with Platform Lid. All the candles in the feature a new versatile design with a tapered glass silhouette and dual-purpose lid which doubles up as a platform for the candle while it burns. As always there's an array of different fragrances and I chose Amaretto Apple because I think it sounds a little different from usual Christmas scents.

Joop! Homme - from £16.99
My partner and I always gift one another a new scent at Christmas and I think they make great gifts for fellow family members too. Sexy and confident, the popular Joop! Homme EDT is a classic scent for men and perfect for date nights or nights on the town. I'm thinking of purchasing Joop! Jump for my Dad next, which is available at Fresh Fragrance. Use the code CGD10 to receive 10% off all products on their website. Voucher code is valid until January 2019.

Go Ape Gift Voucher - from £10.00
Go Ape are firm believers that outdoor experiences make people happy. Whether it’s zipping through the treetops, whizzing along the forest floor, or bouncing on our super springy bounce nets, at Go Ape there’s an adventure for everyone. With 33 locations to choose from in the UK, your loved ones are in for one memorable experience. Gift vouchers start at just £10.00, meaning there's a price point for every wallet and for every occasion. Perfect for all those adrenaline junkies out there.

Manly Gift Hampers - from $19.95
You see so many hampers tailored at women, full of lotions and potions, scents and flowers - what about the blokes? Manly stock so many unique ideas, the promotion present ideas for men really stood out to me. Beef Jerky Rose Bouquet and Beer Mug - genius!

bakerday letterbox cake - from £14.99
Last, but not least how about a letterbox cake from bakerdays? You can't beat a nice cake at Christmas! It's so easy to use their website, you can literally have a personalised cake sent out in minutes, if not sooner! There are countless designs to choose from, a cake for every occasion, many of which can be personalised with names and photographs. Not only that but you can select what flavour cake you want. Traditional sponge, chocolate cake, lemon drizzle, fruit cake, gluten-free sponge or dairy free sponge? What will it be?

Swizzles Sweets - from £1.00
Swizzles are perfect for all those with a sweet tooth, who would perhaps like a trip down memory lane too! I have fond memories of nipping to the corner shop to buy a handful of double lollies and refreshers. The new range of Squashies are fantastic too, great for those who prefer softer, chewier sweets! I'm hoping Nick share's these! 

Do you like the look of any of these gifts? Which is your favourite?
