Gift ideas for the men in your life

Buying gifts for men can be tricky. Choosing something personal can be particularly challenging – especially if they’re not football fans or beer drinkers. Whether it’s for a birthday, anniversary, holiday, or any special occasion, it’s likely you want to find a gift that resonates with their interests.

To help you find something they’ll love, our guide offers thoughtful and practical gift ideas that cater to different personalities.


If he loves the latest tech, there are plenty of gadgets that will enhance his day.

Should a fully integrated smart home be on his bucket list, you could set him up with smart speakers like Amazon Echo or Google Home. Smart thermostats and security systems might also be just what he’s after.

Alternatively, wearable tech like fitness trackers, smartwatches, and even high-tech clothing can be great options. These devices track health metrics as well as offer functionalities like contactless payments.

For gamers, the latest consoles or VR headsets could upgrade their gaming experience. The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X remain popular choices, while VR headsets like the Oculus Quest 2 have immersive capabilities.

Personalised gifts

Do you want to gift them something bespoke? Wallets, cufflinks, or watches with an engraved message or their initials can add a personal touch. If you want to capture your memories together, a professionally bound photo book or a custom print of a favourite photo or artwork can be truly special.

Hobby-related gifts

What are his favourite hobbies? This could be the perfect way to gift him something he’ll love.

If he enjoys sports or exercise, you might want to gift him equipment or gym gear. Maybe he enjoys DIY? Tools or storage equipment might be just what he needs for the next project he works on. If he’s a music fan, why not get him tickets to see his favourite band or even a Spotify membership?

Fashion and grooming

For the fashion lover in your life, jackets, tailored suits, or casual wear from his favourite brands will go down a treat. If you’re unsure of what clothing to buy, you could always take him shopping so he can choose for himself.

High-end shaving kits, beard care products, or skincare sets can also help you maintain a polished appearance, while shoes, trainers, or boots might be the ideal accessories. If ear-wear is their preferred accessory, there are lots of men’s diamond earrings to choose from, or maybe you could get them a leather belt or bag for work.


This could be a great time to book that trip or weekend getaway to his favourite destination. Check out last-minute deals and research things to do while you’re there.

Would he enjoy a workshop? You could enrol him in a cooking class, wine tasting, or book a course in something he’s always wanted to do, such as learning the guitar or pottery.
