Possibly my favourite gift idea this Christmas is a subscription to Beer52; the Craft Beer Discovery Club. This is great because it is tailored to your tastes and their experts pick the best beers personalised to you. You will then be sent 8 exclusive beers along with the latest edition of Ferment Magazine, the UKs number one craft beer magazine and small snack each month.
You can pick between their mixed or light case; the mixed cases contain a varied selection of beers from that months theme, including dark beers like stouts and porters. Whereas their light cases remove the dark beers and instead have more of the light varieties like IPA and Pale Ale.
This is such a great way for any beer lover to try new top quality craft beers from around the world. It costs £24 for 8 beers (or £29 for 10 beers) on a monthly plan billed every 28 days. This works out at £3 per beer! Alternatively you could also order a one-off case as a gift for only £24. The perfect Christmas pressie for any beer lover!
Plus, you can get £10 off when you sign up using code VICVINTAGE10
Smelly gift sets are always a great choice for men of all ages. This set is from Bluebeards Revenge
and includes a 100ml eau de toilette bottle and a 150ml shower gel to ensure he’s smelling his best at all times!
Both are in bright cobalt blue packaging and come nicely presented
in a Bluebeards Revenge gift box decorated with the shiny skull and crossbones logo. They have a really nice classicly masculine fragrance and smell really refreshing.
‘The Kennel’ would make an ideal stocking filler for any guy who likes take a bit of
extra care looking after himself. The kit contains all the essentials
to help revive and rehydrate skin including fresh scented original face
wash, face scrub and moisturiser.
London Sock Exchange
Socks are often not regarded as much of a ‘treat’ as a Christmas present, but everyone needs socks! But do not fear.. this fun new idea from the London Sock Exchange makes it the perfect present for the man in your life. They offer a monthly subscription service where you can sign up and they will send you three pairs of beautifully designs, quirky socks every quarter straight through the letterbox.
You can also recycle odd or holey old socks as they provide a service to dispose of old pairs responsibly and sustainably. Just over half of the old pairs of socks will make their way to developing countries, where they’ll be distributed to communities in need, and the rest are deconstructed and resused in industrial textiles.
Their high quality cotton socks offer the best in British design, maximum comfort and a superior fit. Each pair of socks also comes complete with some rather amusing styling notes. I absolutely love the fun and funky designs and the way the socks are packaged and presented in the box. The perfect Christmas gift!
Clothing always makes a great gift for males and females alike. Knitwear especially is ideal with the cold wintery weather we are currently experiencing. British brand Jacamo offer a range of hoodies and jumpers and this beautiful merino wool zip neck jumper by Tog24 would make the most perfect present.
It is made from high quality fine merino wool which has been spun in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire using the finest yarns. Merino is extremely soft and temperature regulating, so it keeps you warm in cold waether and cool in hot. It is also quick wicking and very breathable to wick moisture away from the skin rapidly. The jumper is designed with comfort in mind, and to ensure comfort, the seamless technology has eliminated any bulky seams.
Gift sets are great if you’re unsure what to buy someone fussy, or perhaps someone who already has everything! This TIGI Bed Head for Men boxed set contains three full size luxurious TIGI products and offers great value.
The Clean Up Daily Shampoo cleans hair and invigorates the scalp by using sunflower seed, saw palmetto and lemongrass extracts. The Clean Up Peppermint Conditioner works alongside the shampoo to hydrate and thicken hair to leave it looking fuller and healthier with a fresh peppermint scent. To finish, the set also includes the Matte Separation Workable Wax for those looking to add extra texture into their style.
Finally.. if you’ve run out of ideas, you can never fail with chocolate treats! Even better.. beer and chocolate combined! Hotel Chocolat have an enormous range of Christmas gifts and this Beer Chocolate Collection which includes 16 mini chocolate casks is the perfect stocking filler. They chocolates comes in four flavours: nostalgic Ginger Beer, hefty Caramel Stout, small-batch Pale Cocoa Beer and complex Cocoa Beer. Why not finish your present with a couple of bottles of the real stuff? They also sell individual bottles of ‘chocolate beer‘ which is an award winning beer brewed with the warming flavour of cocoa shells.
Their ‘Dozen Gingerbread Men‘ box also caught my eye, as the adorable little chocolate men are flavoured with festive flavours cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. The Penguin Selfie chocolate slab is another product that I was tempted by, as it’s absolutely huge and made from a mix of white and milk chocolate.. delicious!
