Have you been lumped with the task of choosing a christmas gift for your dad or brother this year? Or are you searching frantically for the perfect present for your husband or boyfriend? If a pair of socks just isn’t going to cut it this year, here’s a list of gift ideas that we think he’ll love.

For The Bearded Beast 


Beard balm, shaving oil and beard combs make the perfect gift for any Movember participants who aren’t quite ready to part with their newly grown moustache. Or if you’re less fond of the bearded look then a shaving kit could be just the hint he needs to get rid of it.

For The Craft Beer Connoisseur

With a huge selection of Irish craft beers now available, it’s easier than ever to support local brands. A hamper of his favourite craft beers should go down well on Christmas day. We love O’Hara’s Winter Star Pale Ale as a festive treat.

For The Gadget Geek

If he loves having a new gadget to play with on Christmas day then a virtual reality headset is the perfect present. You can download games and movies onto your smartphone and have a real 3D experience – very cool!

For The Gym Junkie

If he’s forever talking about gains, weight lifting and macros then some protein supplements could be a welcome Christmas gift. Add in a blender bottle and he’ll be itching to get back into the gym.

For The Aftershave Addict

Have him smelling sweet this Christmas with a nice bottle of aftershave. Pair this with some shower gels and moisturisers for the best smelling Christmas present ever.

For The Outdoor Adventurer 


Whether he’s an Ironman athlete or simply enjoys a scenic walk every now and then, some good quality outdoor gear should come in useful during the winter months. If he’s a serious outdoor enthusiast why not make him up an essentials kit? Check out our outdoor list for ideas of what to include.

For The Bookworm 


There’s nothing like getting stuck into a good read over the festive period. Irish MMA trainer John Kavanagh’s book Win or Learn is a book that aspiring entrepreneurs as well as sports enthusiasts should really enjoy.

For The Collector

Whether he’s into vintage model cars, vinyls or action figures, finding unique items to add to his collection can make a really unique gift. They may even be worth some money in years to come.

For The Coffee Addict

These cold winter mornings make it even tougher to ditch the duvet and do the commute to work. A nice hot cup of coffee from his new coffee maker should help him on his way. If you’re looking for something portable that’s not going to break the bank then the Aeropress is perfect.

For The Music Lover

Many of us listen to music on our walk to work or when we’re in the gym so a good set of headphones could be a welcome gift. If he prefers to listen to his music the old fashioned way then a record player should make a great present.
