Christmas Gift Guide: For Him Part 1

We’ve dished the essential gifts for under €50 and now it’s the turn of the lads. It’s easy to buy for yourself, but when it comes to him, it’s a tad harder, isn’t it? Read on for our suggestions.

Under €250

Suits you Sir

I am a sucker for a guy in a suit and nothing made me happier than seeing Dermot O’Leary churn out the dapper suit combos week in week out during XFactor. Burgundy tie with a dark blue suit? Yes please.

If a suit is too much, then a blazer can work with anything, even a t-shirt and jeans. A tux blazer is just the best look ever (69.99 EUR) .  Zara offer a fine take on tailoring so it would be first pit stop for a smart suit or blazer.

Hermes Tie

What if your man’s more Pierce Brosnan than Olly Murs? Then a Hermes tie could be the start of a beautiful collection. €125, Brown Thomas.

Cool tee

And if your guy is more Paul Galvin then any of the above (but would never admit it!),  then a cool tee will fit the bill. Skull T-shirt, Alexander McQueen at Brown Thomas and Harvey Nichols, €125 .

Under €50

iPad case

Flash the case at all those meetups, tweetups and conferences. You’ve invested in the iPad, so why not dress it accordingly?  Marc by Marc Jacobs iPad case comes with faux fur lining. €50, Brown Thomas Marvel Room.

Smellin’ good

Any of Beckham’s fragrances for men will do – our favourite from last year is David Beckham Homme, Eau de Toilette, 50ml is €33.95 and available from selected pharmacies nationwide. David Beckham’s latest fragrance, The Essence is a fresh and zesty scent which comes in a textured bottle that’d look good on any  bathroom shelf  (€30 for 50ml or;  €24 for 30ml ). Check out Boots for special offers on gift sets.

Feelin’ good

Clarins Men Super Moisture Gel

Perfect for face and neck hydration, post shave. And our team (well, the one man in the office, Mr M) have tried and tested it to say that it beats L’Oreal Men Expert hands down too! Result.  €26.88 for a 50 ml bottle at Clarins counters nationwide.

Touch screen friendly gloves

Gloves which allow you to type on your iPhone and smartphone. So geekily genius, we want a pair too! £7 plus P&P at Amazon.
