I invited Carolyn Rigby on today to give us some Christmas gift ideas for him. I know it can really stump us ladies sometimes. Here are a few ideas for you. I’ll be posting more in the coming weeks.

Shopping for men is notoriously difficult. However, there are ways to make life easier, and ensure you buy gifts that are guaranteed to impress. Are you eager to get holiday shopping sorted early? If so, this guide will act as your shopping savior.
For the Man Who Never Has Enough Time
Time is a luxury for many of us. If you have a brother, partner or father in need of some time off, use this as inspiration. Book a pamper session at a spa, or offer to babysit your nephews and nieces for the day. Arrange a night at a hotel, or try and organize a weekend away for the whole family. We often focus on material gifts when the holidays are approaching. But often, experiences are much more precious.
For the Sports Fan
Many men love to watch and play sports. If you’re married to a football fan, or your dad is a keen angler, channel their passions when you’re shopping. Think about how they like to spend their time, and what they devote their disposable income to. Would your husband love to go and watch a game live?
Or does your brother collect cards, shirts, or balls? Think about the best Christmas gifts for fishermen. You may not know the first thing about fishing. But the Internet is a great resource. Do some research, read some blogs, and get some tips. Are you looking for stocking fillers? If so, gifts like:
For the Amateur Builder
Does your man fancy himself as an amateur builder? Are they always ready and willing to take on DIY jobs? If so, why not consider presents like a customized toolbox or a new power tool this Christmas? It may not seem like the most exciting or romantic gift to you. But it’s guaranteed to make them smile. Other ideas include books and guides, and personalized plaques for the garage or shed.
For the Gamer
Does your nephew spend every spare minute playing games? Is your cousin attached to the computer at all times? Does your partner queue outside the store for new releases? Gaming is incredibly popular, and there are all kinds of gift ideas out there.
You can invest in new equipment, like a console or virtual reality headset (these are surprisingly affordable). You could buy games. Or you could go for something a bit different. Perhaps you could design a personalized gaming chair or buy a subscription to a gaming magazine, for example.
Christmas is coming, and it’s time to start planning what you’re going to buy for your loved ones. When you’re shopping for the men in your life, think about their interests and hobbies. If you buy something that is linked to their passions, you’re bound to strike gold.
