Christmas Gift Guide for Him

Hey! So it's definitely time to get cracking with my Christmas shopping, every year I leave it too late and get in a panic so this year I want to be a lot more relaxed! To help me get started I've been browsing online and have come across a couple of things I think would be cool for anyone, but seeing as men are notoriously tricky to buy for I think these would be good buys for guys.

Very British Problems: Making Life Awkward For Ourselves One Rainy Day At A Time by Rob Temple, £6.49:  I love the Twitter that this book is based on and the book is just as hilarious. If you're a Brit you'll definitely relate, it makes for a funny, light hearted read.

Humans Of New York by Brandon Stanton, £14.95: I could literally browse Humans Of New York for hours so to have it in book form would be especially nice. If you haven't heard of it (although I'm sure you have!) it's basically snapshots of people in New York and quotes/short stories told by them. It's just really interesting and often very moving, with some funny moments in there too.

Black Skull Tee by The Formal Shirt Company, £25: It's always nice to buy from independent UK designers and these tees are designed and printed in London, as well as being sweat shop free! The Black Skull Tee is my personal favourite but you can check out more designs here. As it's Black Friday they're offering a whopping 35% discount if you use the code blackfriday35! For future offers and updates you can follow on twitter, Facebook and instagram

Unisex Cashmere Knitted Scarf by Uniqlo, £29.90: I own a couple of cashmere pieces from Uniqlo and the quality is really rather good, especially considering the lower price point. I think if you're going to buy someone a scarf as a gift it should be a little bit special and there's nothing more snug than cashmere!

1000 Football Shirts: The Colours Of The Beautiful Game by Bernard Lions, £16.89: For those who love football and fashion, sorted!

As I said, these gifts are mainly pretty unisex but I hope that's given you some ideas! I know I've included a lot of books but I really think they're a good thing to give as it's not often people buy them for themselves, especially the type I've featured here. I just want to say as well if you're doing your Christmas shopping online (or indeed any Black Friday shopping!) please, please, please make sure you're signed up to Give As You Live. It's super quick and easy to do and helps to raise money for the charity of your choice without any added extra cost to you...amazing right? If you're stuck for a cause I must say The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is a brilliant one ;)

(Talking of The CF Trust, my charity Christmas cards are still available here but have been selling out fast! Until this Sunday there's 30% off all stock if you use the code 'blackfriday1'!)


  1. It's so bad to admit that I'd wrapped all of my christmas at the beginning of November! All except my brother's who I bought online last night - so I definitely could have used this last night ;) I've got him some elf slippers though which was pretty cool, with 25% off and free delivery as well! Making the most of black friday! xxx

  2. I have made a start on my Christmas shopping but thanks for reminding me to sign up to the CF give as you live! I love all of your suggestions - I would be happy with any of them too!...xx

  3. Some awesome choices - I wouldn't mind the British Problems page turner myself ;)


  4. The Very British Problems Book is my brother's Xmas present sorted - thanks for the recommendation!

  11. I love Humans of New York and to have it as a book would be such a good present - is it bad if i buy it for myself? I'm so behind on Christmas presents, haven't even thought of any yet... I'm blaming exam season. Also I've never heard of Give As You Live but it sounds absolutely brilliant so thanks for informing me!

  12. The Humans of New York book is amazing gift idea! Genuinely going to go buy that now- thank you!
