If you’re stumped on what to get your husband, father or brother this year – our guide could help.
It can be tricky to know what to get your loved ones at Christmas, particularly if they have no idea what they want themselves! If you’ve not been given any ideas, we’re here to provide you with a little inspiration of what to get the men in your life this festive season.*
Stocking fillers (under £10)
Star Wars t-shirt
With the eagerly awaited Star Wars: The Force Awakens set for release this December, the stores are full of Star Wars merchandise. If the person you’re buying for is a big Star Wars fan, we’re sure this grey Star Wars tee will go down a treat – and it’s only £6!
Baylis & Harding Skin Set
Not sure what to get an appearance-conscious sibling? Why not pick up this Baylis & Harding Skin Set from Amazon? The set is only £7.50 but comes with body wash, soap, shower gel, aftershave balm and a face cloth.
A Game of Thrones
Is your brother, husband or father hooked (like so many of us) on the TV show Game of Thrones? If so, why not pick them up the first book in the series? A Game of Thrones is the book that started it all and there’s four more in the series to get stuck into. You can pick up the paperback for just £3.85.

Kingsman: The Secret Service DVD
If your man’s obsessed with all things secret agent, he’ll love finding Kingsman:The Secret Service in his Christmas stocking. The film tells the story of a rough around the edges agent in training – and with rave reviews online, you can’t go wrong with this at just £6.99!
The main event (less than £100)
Know someone that’s constantly glued to their smartphones, watching videos or downloading films? This smartphone projector could make the ideal Christmas present this year. It’s really easy to use: all you have to do is assemble the projector and slot your smartphone in – not bad for £15.95.
Portable Power Bank
Ok, so this one’s more of a practical gift, but if you have a family member that travels a lot or likes to camp in the great outdoors, then this Lumsing Portable Power Bank could be the perfect gift. This power pack will charge your iPhone or Android device when you’re away from a power supply. At just £19.99, we’re sure they’ll love it!
Although you can’t give the gift of time, you can get pretty close by giving your loved one a watch this Christmas. You don’t have to spend a fortune to pick up a decent one either, this watch from Sekonda has all the basics they’d want – gold-plated detailing on the case, three hand movement and a date window – all for just £29.99!
If you’re trying to buy for a man that has pretty much everything, why not treat them to an experience day? For those not afraid to take to the skies, this 15-mile helicopter flight will provide a picturesque flying experience for between 30 and 45 minutes and comes in at £49 for one person.
We know you may think purchasing clothes is a no-go area but it doesn’t have to be. If you stick with basics like this pair of boots from H&M, you’ll have more much chance of success than flamboyant pieces. This pair is only £49.99 and we particularly like it in the burgundy colour!
Music lovers and sport enthusiasts alike will be eternally grateful for this pair of beats by Dr Dre headphones this Christmas. They’re known for their crystal clear sound and this pair features microphone and volume control. They’re sweat and water resistant as well, so you won’t have to worry about them getting damaged after a hard workout. These headphones are currently reduced at Currys from £79.99 to £59.99 – so you need to be quick if you want to pick these up for Christmas!
