Christmas season is officially on now, and that means many of us are on the mission to find the best Christmas gifts for all our nearest and dearest. In case you’re lacking inspiration, fear no more! I’ve got you covered. I’ve compiled a long list of Christmas Gift ideas and I want to share it with you. I’ve named this list Christmas Gifts for Him but honestly, I’d be happy with a lot of these myself. 🙂 Christmas Gifts for Her, Christmas Gifts for Parents or Grandparents, Stocking Fillers, Gag Gifts… these are all coming soon!
1. Smart band / Fitness tracker
These are great for fitness enthusiasts and everyone who likes to stay connected even when they can’t be using their phone (most bands display notifications from your phone). What’s great about this gift idea is that you can find them on all price levels – and even the most budget friendly ones are a great novelty gadget and will allow you to track how active you are throughout the day, how your heart rate changes or how good your night sleep is – and it’s fascinating to see how these things change!
The first few items on the list are tech gadgets; number two being a VR set. Just like smart bands, they come in all different prices, starting under $10! And, if you ask me, $10 for at-home 3D experience isn’t much. There’s a whole variety of (free) VR-friendly videos, apps and games online, so this gadget can provide quite a few hours of fun.
3. USB hub
Staying in tech category, we have USB hubs. They can be a nice, practical little gift for those who spend hours in front of a computer. And to make it a bit less boring, you can find USB hubs in snazzy shapes, so just pick one that best matches the personality and interests of who you’re gifting it to!
4. Portable charger
The last practical tech gadget on this list is a portable charger, also known as a powerbank. We live in times when flashing battery icon on our smartphones is one of our greatest fears, so having a powerbank at hand can save us from a catastrophe. Pick one in a small size but with great capacity for the best results!
5. Venus flytrap
If you believe he could use some fresh green colours in their surroundings but no regular plant stands a chance to grab his attention enough to make it till February, try with one of these! Even a plant can be a manly gift, as long as they’re carnivore.
6. Swiss Army knife
A high quality swiss army knife is one of those gadgets every guy should have. You never know when things like that can come in handy, so it’s best to get prepared in advance! They can keep this portable set of tools in the car, and when the time of ‘I wish I had … with me’ comes, they’ll be ready for it!
7. Multitool survival card
Swiss knives are great to have, but sometimes all they have on them is a wallet. And this multitool card is small enough to fit inside! Being the size of a credit card, it’s easy to always have it in your pocket. And you never know when you’re going to need one of its 18 tools!
Got the multitool card to put in the wallet, but the wallet itself is long overdue an upgrade? A high quality wallet is every man’s must-have. After all, they don’t always have a bag or a backpack with them – many times all they have is a wallet.
9. Beard kit
We, girls, are often presented with beauty or makeup products. Men can have their beauty gifts too! If you’re searching for a present for a proud owner of a luscious beard, consider surprising them with one of the beard kits!
Looking for a more serious gift? A businessman – as well as anyone dealing with loads of paperwork, actually – should appreciate a good quality pen. Consider getting their initials engraved on it for a more personalized present.
11. Document case
Speaking of businessmen, they are likely to always carry around multiple credit cards, business cards, store and café loyalty cards… it’s easy to get overwhelmed by these! And that’s when document cases come in handy – a nice, elegant little gift idea.
12. Mini portable game console
We’ve been serious for a short while, time for another rather light-hearted gift idea. These small portable consoles come with hundreds of retro mini games already built-in. They may not replace Xbox or PlayStation kind of entertainment, but sometimes all we need is to shoot at some Spaceships. Also, you won’t take an Xbox with you to kill some time in the dentist’s waiting room. A small console is perfectly fit for that job though!
13. Remote control toy
They may be too embarrassed to say it out loud, but most guys still have that childhood dream. Remote control cars, planes, helicopters or, popular nowadays, drones can bring long hours of entertainment even to a grown-up man.
14. Leather gloves
Getting practical again! If you live in a cold climate, there’s a good chance that winter will continue for a long time after Christmas is gone. Warm gloves are everyone’s must-have!
15. Calendar / Pocket diary
With a new year starting, most of us make resolutions and set ourselves some goals. And once you come up with a plan, it’s easier to stay on top of it if you write everything down in a calendar.
I hope this list helps! Keep your eyes peeled for more Christmas gift inspirations, coming in the next days. 🙂
