What to buy him for Christmas

The other half is always the most challenging when it comes to choosing Christmas presents. If you’re struggling for ideas, take a look at some of the items we’ve put together for the perfect Christmas wish list for him.

For the fashion lover…

Even if he’s a keen follower of fashion, we’d always recommend against buying him clothes for Christmas. What you choose may not be to his tastes and even if you’re dead certain about something, it may not look as good on, as it does on the hanger.

On the other hand, you can’t go wrong with a stylish bag or piece of luggage. Teals Boutique are a British company with a fantastic selection leather holdalls, like this vintage style piece. This is the perfect weekend bag, although it’s equally good for using for the gym – so he’s sure to get plenty of use out of it.

Shoes are another great option for the fashion conscious hubby, while still avoiding the risks associated with buying him clothing. We love the classic styling of these Paul Smith brogues, available to buy online from Cruise Fashion.

For the adrenaline junkie…

Looking for a more active present to impress him this year? These days you can organise everything from bungee jumping to sports car driving as a Christmas treat; although we can’t imagine that anyone would be disappointed by the prospect of indoor skydiving!

Virgin offer indoor skydiving in a range of locations throughout the UK, as part of their selection of experience gifts. This a great activity to do as a couple and one that’s sure to provide you with some lasting memories!

For the caveman…

If your other half is the sort of fellow who rarely indulges in some relaxation, you could really take him by surprise this Christmas with some male pampering.

You can go one step further than simply buying toiletries or a gift set. Why not book him in for a session at the local spa, where he can really kick back and relax? Red Letter Days have a wide range of manly MOTs, with everything from massages to classic Turkish shaves on offer. If it would never cross his mind to book himself up for a spa session, organising this as his Christmas gift can make for a pleasant change.

Sparkle and Shine This Christmas

It may be October, but Christmas Season is definitely just around the corner. As early as now, festive decorations are starting to make its way around the block. You can smell the cool breeze and yes, holiday is indeed here. Brightly lit decors like the famous Christmas Star, the famous Christmas tree, Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer and Santa Clause – just to name a few of my all time favorite. But none of this would be as spectacular as they should be, without the must have Christmas Lights. These multi-hued, sparkling LED lights make a dramatic effect on the decoration, basically makes everything around the house warm and beautiful.

I always decorate my home in and out during Christmas and I make sure that my Christmas lights are as dependable and charming as can be. I tried these pretty Indoor Battery Operated LED Fine Wire Snowflake Christmas Line Lights which I used to hang around my Christmas tree, and they are absolutely stunning. It created a wintry feel around my living room, which I love. Aside from the look, I liked that these LED lights use 75% less energy than the usual bulb which eases on my electric bill. Now with the outdoors, I found these Durawise Battery Operated Christmas Line Lights in Cool White that I use in my front lawn or in the garden looking like sparkling little fire flies. What I liked about these, aside from the fact that they are energy saving, is that it comes with a timer which automatically turns on or off after a couple of hours, 6 to be exact. So I don’t have to worry about my homes safety from overheated or faulty wiring which causes fire.

Since I am not to be outdone this Holiday Season, I have placed a couple of Outdoor LED Standing Reindeer Light in white as well as an Indoor Battery Operated Pre-lit LED Glitter Standing Deer in Gold standing in my doorstep. They look so magnificent with the glistening White and Gold lights all over their body. All these I have found in an online website, alongside the others I mentioned above, for such an affordable price tag. And if you are not satisfied with what you’ve purchased, which I guarantee is impossible, free returns are accepted on selected items. I am so ready for Christmas and so is my home.
