Christmas Gift Guide for Men

My husband is the most difficult person to buy for ever. I’m not sure he’s actually ever really liked anything I’ve bought for him in the past (apart from a surprise ski holiday for his 30th birthday, that went down pretty well!). We don’t really buy each other big gifts, as we prefer to spend the money on other things (wedding, house, holidays…) but I can’t help but buy him a few little gifts each year. He doesn’t like opening presents for the sake of it (!) so I have to think carefully about what he might actually like or find useful! I actually feel pretty confident that he’ll like the things I’ve found this year so here are a few of the stocking filler ideas I have come up with…


Leather Phone Case from Casemade

Casemade make really lovely leather phone holders and cases, including a range for iPhone 7. A phone case makes a really great gift because its practical and useful, and who doesn’t have a phone! Casemade cases are great quality and really stylish. They’re slim and don’t make your phone feel bulky, and the wallet version even has space to carry a few bank cards inside it. They are really reasonably priced for a leather case, and delivery in the UK is free! The case arrives wrapped in tissue paper (one less thing to wrap before Christmas!) and with a free screen cloth too.


Casemade kindly sent us this case in exchange for an honest review.

Smartphone Projector

I love the look of this Luckies of London Version 2.0 Smartphone Projector” target=”_blank”>smartphone projector from Luckies of London. You can use it to share holiday photos with friends and family, watch a film on your bedroom wall or project music videos onto the inside of your tent at a festival. It would be lots of fun and actually really useful too if you don’t feel like watching something on the small screen on your phone. Ready to use straight from the box is always a winner too!

Home Ware from Ergo Home

I recently discovered Ergo Home on Instagram and have been lusting over all of their products ever since. They have candle holders, throws, tea lights and all things hygge, but the reason for including them in this guide is their stunning copper letters and framed prints. They’re sleek and stylish enough to gift to a man, and you win too because they’ll look great in your home! I’d love the W (our surname initial) and Tom wouldn’t think I was just buying myself a present! Currently selling over on Instagram and Facebook, with a brand new website in the pipeline too!


Hydratem8 Water Bottle

I absolutely love my hydratem8 bottle. Its really increased my water intake and it large enough that I don’t have to fill in every 5 minutes. I love the straw as it is easy to grab a quick drink without having to take off a lid, but you don’t have to touch the part where you drink from unlike other sports cap bottles (a great advantage when you work in a school like me or a hospital like my husband!). The bottles are BPA free which is great to know too, and its always nice to consider the environment by using a reusable bottle. I think the blue or limited edition black bottles would make a great gift for my husband. Oh and £1 from every purchase goes to PumpAid!


So there are a few of the small gifts I’ll be considering for Tom this year. Do you find the men in your life hard to buy for?

Thanks for popping by,

  1. My men are definitely difficult to buy for – they never want anything! I love the copper letters, so stylish! Unfortunately we already have one of these in our living room (but gold), so I’ll need to wrack my brains a bit harder. Thanks for joining us again at #SharingtheBlogLove

  2. I do find men hard to buy for yes. I started to make my own gifts for them because my hubby has pretty much what he wants and he consumes most things digitally these days – films, boxsets, games etc. I wrote a post recently re easy DIY gifts for men! #KCACOLS

  3. I have this problem every year – why are men so hard to buy for?!

    I really like the look of the phone case – will have to check it out.

    Thank you for linking up to #KCACOLS and I hope to see you back again on Sunday x
