It depends what man you might be buying for, but I always find it a bit more tricky buying for men – especially ones that claim not to want anything. Know anyone like that?
I have a few ideas here that you might not ordinarily come across and might just be what you have been looking for…when you’re not really sure what you’re looking for!
One great idea is to buy an ‘experience’ that can be used in a variety of places around the country. A smartbox is a present that can never be the wrong choice as the choice is theirs to make and can be shared with another person too. They can go out for a meal or do something more daredevil. There are lots of options to suit everyone and I think this box is amazing value.

You can perhaps buy them a book on manners 😉 An amusing read for the discerning male and can suit different generations.

Music lovers who love nothing more than being able to have speakers that are mobile, might find the Boom Bottle is just what they’ve been looking for. Not only is it portable, but it’s also waterproof, sand proof and pretty much anything proof! Think a trip to the beach or a BBQ – I know maybe not at this time of the year, but it’ll be great next year. It’s magnetic so you can attach your phone to it if you want and even use the top as a bottle opener – so it’s definitely got a few handy uses.
Scosche Boom Bottle, £111.00
For the health conscious, a thirsti smart water hydration tracking device might be the kind of thing that will help them keep on track!
The thirsti Puck is a one of its kind hydration coach that accurately monitors your water intake. The device works out how much you should drink throughout the day and then helps you get there, by glowing in your bottle or sending notifications to your phone.
Make phone charging easier than ever by buying them a wireless fast charging pad. There is no need to plug a charger cable into the phone anymore as with this clever little gadget charges your phone when it is simply placed on top of it.
Wireless charger pad, £13.99

Winter accessories can never be a bad choice and a knitted bobble hat is always needed at some point during our colder months.
Napapijiri Semiury Blue bobble hat, £35
Maybe mix it up a bit by buying them a board game (instead of console games) for adults only. Scrawl will be great fun to pull out over the festive period and throughout the coming year when you have a gathering of friends.
Scrawl , £25
Or how about a selfie frame that will get family and friends crowding in for a photo on the big day?
