Men’s 2020 Christmas gift buying guide

It’s (almost) time to break out the jingle bells.

The shops are filling up with decorations, and we’ll soon see big green trees twinkling in the windows of homes. Christmas is coming, and after an unusual year, it’s a time for joy and celebration.

Have you started thinking about what Christmas gifts you want to give to your dad, brother, boyfriend or friend yet? It’s tough knowing what to buy after such an odd year, but we’ve got a few stocking-filling ideas for you.

We’ve compiled a guide of the top Christmas gifts for men. And this year, it’s all about showing that extra bit of thought and care.

Christmas gifts that make memories

jumping into water

Help the men in your life end 2020 on a high! Treat him to a fun day out with one of our experience days.

For daredevils who want to tick off bucket list items, we’ve got lots of adventure experiences to send 2020 off in epic style. Take him skydiving, parachuting or paragliding, where he can soar from 7,000 feet up in the air, or sign him up for an indoor skydiving experience, where he’ll get all the thrill and wind rush from the safety of a vertical wind tunnel.

If he’d prefer to stay in the plane, spoil him with a flying experience or even an hour-long flying lesson, where he can take to the skies in Tiger Moths, helicopters, microlights and gyrocopters. If he’s got a strong stomach, let him flip through the air in an aerobatic stunt flight. If not, let him take the control in a more calm flight simulator, where he can pilot Boeings or Spitfires.

For a man who prefers wheels to wings, we’ve got lots of fast-paced supercar experiences on offer too, where he can zoom around in Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Aston Martins for a day.

Pampering gifts for him

Is he in need of a bit of TLC? Getting to the barbers and hairdressing salons has been challenging for many of us this year, so why not treat him to his own grooming session? Let him enjoy a 70-minute haircut, hot towel and head massage at Barber Boyz, or give him a DIY kit for some home-based self care.

We’ve also got personalised beard grooming kits, with vegan-friendly beard oils made of the finest natural ingredients.

If he’s really into being pampered, send him off on an overnight spa break to help him rejuvenate. Here, he can choose from massages to steam rooms, offered in some of the UK’s most luxurious hotels. You can also help him unwind through a meditation, zen-gardening or life coaching online course, so that he’s pumped up and ready to take on 2021.

Christmas getaway gifts

If he’s tired of looking at the four walls in his home, treat him to a one or

two-night mini getaway, choosing from premium locations across the UK’s cities, countryside and coast. Put him up in a modern hotel, or even a luxury cottage complete with its own hot tub under the stars. There are also getaways that include unlimited golf.

For a more unusual experience he won’t forget, try one of our non-traditional stays like a pod in Devon, a hobbit hole in the Lake District, a medieval castle in Cheshire, or even a little Shepherd’s Hut in Somerset.

For a relaxed day out, send him beer tasting, where he can sip his favourite brews while exploring a brewery or cruising down the Thames. He could even try his hand at making his own beer in a seven-hour masterclass, where he’ll earn a certificate and five litre mini keg of beer for his efforts.

Gifts for the homebody

If all he wants to do is put up his feet for the holidays, you can help him out with a range of festive treats to enjoy. Spoil him with a Christmas Cracker Basket, filled with traditional classics like roasted nuts, mince pies, shortbread and Christmas pudding. He can also try our Jingle Bells Hamper, sampling spiced peanuts and gin-flavoured marshmallows.

Couple this with a personalised book about his favourite football team, and he’ll be all set until New Year’s.
