Christmas Gift Guide for the Men Who Are Hard To Buy For

Christmas Gift Guide for the Men Who Are Hard To Buy For

It's crazy to think this is my last group gift guide! There will be one more after this about stocking fillers and last-minute presents that will be going up at the end of this week, but this is the final one for a specific category member! It's strange to think that a week ago I was sat surrounded by products trying to figure out how the hell I was going to put this all together.

But I have, and I've loved every minute! I'm also pretty impressed that I've been able to produce 4 blog posts in the space of less than a week when normally I struggle to post once a week at the most. 

Make sure you're all caught up with my other gift guides for friends and sisters, grandmas and mothers-in-lawmums and last-minute stocking fillers.

For me, men have always been really hard to buy for. I've grown up surrounded by picky men, which makes buying them gifts for birthdays or Christmas a right nightmare! This has meant though that I've slowly learned what works and what doesn't when it comes to presents. 

Take a scroll down and see if you pick up any gift ideas for those men in your life that are hard to buy for.


One thing that I know is that men love to be comfortable. Doesn't matter what the occasion, if they're not comfortable then they are not happy. Loungewear, in particular, is a great gift to help them feel warm and snug this winter, especially if we get any more snow like we have this week.

You will obviously have the usual options of loungewear like slippers, pyjamas, and robes, but if you're looking for something a little different, this might be what you're looking for.

This Next fleece hoodie is a great versatile piece that can be worn over PJ's or used to layer when heading outside. It is fleece-lined on the inside as well as outside and is one of the softest things I've ever felt. It's basically a furry robe disguised as a hoodie or a teddy bear coat for indoors. Basically a blanket in the shape of clothing. Dreamy.

My dad does a lot of work on the computer, so sitting still in the cold for such a long time isn't the best thing for him, so this hoodie is perfect for when he's working at this time of year.

I don't need to give this one much explanation; men love chocolate. End of. Well, unless they're allergic to it then maybe this isn't the best choice. 

For those who love chocolate, getting a little quirky set like this one from Hotel Chocolat would put a smile on anyone's face. These little penguins are so cute and taste amazing too. They're also available in the mix and match offer being run where you can buy 3 or more sets for £6 each.

Some men are really into their skincare but for those who aren't, a great gift option is bath and body products. As much as they may turn their nose up at skincare, shower gels and aftershaves will always go down a treat as they are things they use already. My boyfriend has actually found products he loves and now uses regularly from Christmas gift sets.

One of the great things about bath and body gift sets is most of the time they will come with a wash bag. Perfect for travelling, showering at the gym or for keeping everything tidy in the bathroom, they don't go unused. 

Baylis and Harding have this great small wash bag set available that comes with a cleansing shower gel and soothing aftershave balm in a vibrant citrus lime and mint scent. They are always spot on with their scents, especially for men, as they normally head towards a lovely mixture of fresh zesty scents with woody undertones like in this set. 


There's my penultimate Christmas gift guide for men! I hope this may have helped you out in some way with sorting out pressies for those picky men. 

Once more, I want to thank the brands who gifted items for all of these gift guides- I was overwhelmed with the support I got while working on them!
