Gift guide: What to get the man in your life this festive season

It can be tough to figure out what to buy for the men in your life, whether it’s your partner or father figure or best friend. But the festive season is here and we’ve got some options that are evergreen and can be used all year round. If you’ve left buying presents until the last minute, here are a few ideas you can put together for the perfect festive season gift

A luxury grooming kit or beard care set

Get your loved one onto the self-care train and make sure he has a proper grooming kit on hand. A comprehensive kit can contain a set of clippers, shavers or beard trimming tools. If the man in your life has a beard, there are plenty of beard oils on the market that will ensure he looks his best. Another option is a full set of skincare he can use, perfect for the harsh South African climate

A set of craft beers or his favourite spirit

One of the ways to splurge this Christmas is to compile a gift hamper of his favourite drinks of the year. If he is an avid whiskey lover, why not add in a set of tumblers along with his favourite whisky to boot. A set of craft beers with an invite to visit his favourite brewery is a unique way to spend time together along with giving a gift that he can use/enjoy immediately

A golf or tennis set for the sports enthusiast

Now, sports gear usually doesn’t come cheap but it’s one way to upgrade his current set if he has one. Alternatively, it’s the ideal gift if he’s been wanting to try a new hobby or revisit a sport he used to love. Getting active and outdoors together could be the ideal bonding activity with a loved one

Tickets to a game or concert of his favourite band

After the high of winning the Rugby World Cup, we know how much South Africans love a live game. Why not get a season’s pass to his favourite sports team so he can see the action upfront? If you know who his favourite musician or band is, getting a set of concert tickets is such a memorable experience to share.

A tech gadget like a smartwatch or wireless headphones

Another big ticket item, but nabbing him that tech item he’s always wanted is a surefire hit. While it doesn’t have to be a new phone or smartwatch - it could be a new gaming console or a game he’s had his eye on. Tech items aren’t cheap but high-quality products tend to last and are worth the price tag.
