Men's Christmas Gift Guide - Ideas For Presents For Guys In 2018

Is it just me, or does it seem to get harder and harder to buy presents for guys these days? No matter if you’re shopping for your dad, brother, grandad, friend or even yourself, men are usually the most difficult to buy for.

My Christmas gift guide is here! Packed with ideas to help you get some best presents for the man in your life. In the guide I’ve picked out some things in a range of price points, so whether you’re looking for that ‘main’ present, or just a stocking filler, there’s something which you’ll be able to get.

I’ve got things that every guy needs covered; From grooming to aftershaves, tech and gadgets, some clothing and of course that all important food and drink.

Nivea Men Grooming Set For Christmas

NIVEA Men Get Fresh & Smooth Set

I love NIVEA Men, and this year they have the perfect set, which they’re called the Get Fresh And Smooth. The set contains shower gel, antiperspirant, moisturiser, post-shave balm and face wash. A must have and bargain for £10at Superdrug

Bleu De Chanel Parfum

Bleu De Chanel Parfum

When it comes to scents, there’s so many to choose from, but one of the stand out ones has to be Bleu De Chanel Parfum from Chanel. It’s new for 2018, and builds on the successful and popular EDT and EDP variants of the family. I’ve reviewed it before and it is worthy of the Chanel name, a true refined gentleman’s fragrance.

Johnstons of Elgin Cashmere Scarf Personalised

When it comes to knitwear and scarves, one of the biggest names in the UK is Johnstons of Elgin. They do quality work, woven in Scotland, which includes their cashmere scarves. With a huge collection available, I’ve picked this black tartan pattern option, which I think really looks the part. You can even get complimentary personalisation which gives it that added unique touch.
