With just a few days left of shopping until Christmas you’re probably still trying to figure out what to buy for the men in your life; dad, uncle, brother, friends, boyfriend. Don’t get trapped into buying those cliché gifts like socks, ties or slippers. How about finding something you know he’d love and actually put to use? Here are five of my suggestions, in no particular order, for some last-minute gifts you can buy for him.
1. A Weekender Bag.
What man wouldn’t want a quality bag? It’s perfect for the weekend getaway or for going to the gym. Depending on his personality there are a variety of option you can choose. A quality leather bag will last for many years to come and has a polished look that a man of style would love. If he’s more of a sporty type, go for a quality canvas tote he could easily take to the gym too.
2. Portable Battery Charger
Who hasn’t been caught with a dead battery and frantically searching for an outlet to get that quick fix? This is not only a perfect gift for him, but for almost anyone. We all use electronics so much we’ve come to rely on them and they seem to always die right when we need them. Visit any electronic shop and you can find a variety of battery packs that are compatible with most devices today.
3. Bluetooth Speakers
What an awesome way to have a casual hangout with his buddies. Chilling to great music using his Bluetooth speakers connected to his favourite mobile device. Expect to spend around $200 for a good quality speaker that will deliver a crisp sound quality without distortion. With many options available on the market, Christmas season is the perfect time to find some amazing deals.
A classic gift for a man any age, there’s something to be said about a quality timepiece. It adds that perfect touch to a well-tailored suit and even looks great for an athletic man when you select a style like the Fossil one pictured above. Be sure to always stick to your budget but don’t skimp too much when it comes to a timeless piece like this.
You can’t go wrong with a drink for a man who enjoys his favourite brews, Scotch or Vodkas. For the beer connoisseur this is Beer Tasting set pictured above will surely surprise him and will make a great conversation piece for those game nights with the guys. If your man isn’t an avid beer drinker you can also opt for some perfect gift sets available at this time of year for some of the world’s best liquors.
