Christmas Gift Ideas: For Him

Eeeeep!! Its Christmas again!! And while wrapping up on the sofa with some Christmas films and a hot chocolate is always amazing, there is also the small matter of presents to consider. Luckily though, we here at Very HQ have got our elf outfits on the go and we’re here to help you pick the perfect gift for your man.

So sit back, carry on watching Home Alone and whether you’re working on a budget, or you’re trying to go extravagant and make a real impression on your special someone, these are our picks to make the man in your life smile.

Stocking Fillers

We’ve got a great range of 3 for 2 gifts and jewellery with many under £20 here at very. With everything from spirits and ale gift sets, to books and everything in between. These are a couple of our favourites.

Transformers Autobot Light – whether he grew up in the 80’s and remembers the original comics and cartoons, or whether he is a fan of Michael Bay’s Hollywood Blockbusters, the big kid in most men loves Transformers and this light will look great either on a bedside table or in a man cave (if he’s lucky enough to have one!).

Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth (Paperback) – The Autobiography from ‘The Baddest Man on the Planet’, this bestselling book documents the life and career of the former World Heavyweight Champion, giving a shocking insight into his life before, during and after his decorated career. For any sports fans, or even anyone interested in one of the most famous people the world has known this is a fantastic read.


Playing It Safe

If he’s the kind of man who has everything, or if he’s just really hard to buy for, you can’t go too far wrong with Aftershaves, Wallets and Toiletries (we’re easy to please, really!).

These are a selection of our best selling aftershaves.

  1. Paco Rabanne 1 Million
  2. Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male
  3. Joop! Homme
  4. Diesel Only The Brave
  5. Armani Code


Shop our full range of aftershave here.

You could even use one of the ideas we normally have for you and buy us some underwear. Calvin Klein’s are always a good look, and you can shop our range of CK’s here.


The Personal Touch

We’ve got a full range of personalised products with everything covered from pens and cufflinks to pocket watches and wallets. We can’t pass up the opportunity to mention our Personalised Malt Whisky in Silk Lined Gift Box. It can be personalised with up to 99 characters, directly onto the label, so you can even leave him a special message on there . If you wanted to make a set, this Whiskey Glass is the perfect accompaniment.

We’ve even got you covered if he’s interested in Nintendo’s Wii U or 3DS! We love this Xbox One bundle that comes with the limited edition white Xbox One console, a copy of Sunset Overdrive, PES 2015 and Titanfall, So whether he’s footy mad, or likes shooting anything that moves, he’s covered with this bundle!

  1.  Diesel Baby Daddy Gunmetal and Brown Strap Mens Watch
  2.  Police Patrol Black Leather Strap Mens Watch
  3.  Ben Sherman Blue Dial Stainless Steel Bracelet Mens Watch

Something different

Did you know our  Experiences Collection has everything from a Night in Paris With River Cruise to 4×4 Off Road Driving Thrills brought to you by ‘Virgin Experience Days’?

Our best sellers include Hot Air Balloon Flights and Spa Days but if you’re looking for something a bit more off-the-wall for him then there is Indoor Skydiving in a wind tunnel, The Incredible Auto Circus where he can take part in 6 exciting motor racing events and an Aerobatic Flight where he can experience the thrill of aerobatic manoeuvres to name a few!

Hopefully this has taken the stress out of your Christmas shopping this year, and don’t forget to check out our Very Treats when you pick his gifts, so that you can get a little something for yourself thrown in especially from us for your efforts!

Now back to Muppet Christmas Carol!!

Experiences are brilliant presents to get. And we never say no to whisky.

But, if we may blow our own trumpet for a minute, our rather smart organic cotton men’s shirts are also rather welcome under the tree.
