Hi lovelies, and welcome to my third and final gift guide! This time we have my Christmas gift guide for him. As I mentioned in my Christmas Gift Guide for Her, although this is a Christmas gift guide for him, these are just the presents I have bought for the men in my life. I do appreciate that many, if not all, of these presents can be bought for people of any gender!
And if you’re looking for Christmas present ideas for your furry friend, you can check out my Gift Guide for Pets, too! Now, let’s get into it!
First, I’d like to start off with these great books from Thames & Hudson! I was kindly gifted these books to feature in this gift guide, and I think they’re a perfect gift for anyone who either loves photography, travelling or both. If you know someone in your life who loves photography but who wants to take their skills to the next level, then this Retro Cameras book is perfect!
It takes you through a plethora of vintage cameras, and tells you details about how they shoot, prices ranges, and a quick brief on how to they work. It also has a section at the end about accessories for your vintage camera. As you can see, it’s a fairly thick book! Just when you think it couldn’t possibly come up with more cameras, it surprises you with about 50 more. It’s very informative and a great book to have on your shelf!
What I’m most excited about, however, is this Vintage Travel Posters pack. I love travelling, and I love vintage things. Anything that has a story behind in is beautiful to me, and vintage styles hold a story of time. These vintage-style posters are absolutely gorgeous, and I’d happily frame them every single one of them, and hang them all around my home if I had enough wall space!
There are 30 posters in this pack, and they’re of various places around the world. We have posters of places around the UK, as well as Australia, Marseille, Monaco, Venice and plenty more! I cannot describe how in love with these posters I am, and they will make a perfect gift for any travel (and vintage!) lover in your life!
Next we have this cookbook – Eat What You Watch by Andrew Rea, a.k.a. Binging with Babish. I love watching cooking shows, and there is something about the Binging with Babish series on YouTube that is way more fun than your average one. The mastermind behind the show tries to recreate food from popular movies and TV shows, and most of the time they turn out amazing (sometimes, there is no hope – especially for Rachel’s “trifle” from Friends).
This cookbook is a collection of some of the dishes he has made on this series! Including, as you can see from the picture, the “I’m Sorry” cake from Bridesmaids! I have no doubt that it is as delicious as it looks in that photo. If I’m honest, I’d love to have his book as a present. As it was my boyfriend that introduced me to this YouTube series, I decided to buy it for him for Christmas! This, of course, means I can steal it whenever I want.
Next up is a bit of a pricier purchase – this RFID wallet from Bellroy. RFID is a technology that basically stops people from scanning your bank cards while they’re in your wallet – and since technology is getting smarter, this is unfortunately something that is happening more and more. Not only does it protect against this, but it looks great! The quality of this wallet is amazing, and it comes it different combination colours. Personally, I love the dark brown and tan trimmings like this one. Also, can we just take a moment to appreciate the cute packaging it comes in?
This wallet is a perfect gift for someone who loves gadgets, appreciates a good wallet, and wants to keep their money safe. I mean, who doesn’t want that last one?
Next I have this beard set from Brisk, that I picked up in Boots. I picked these items up separately, but I think they’ll go well together and would even be great as stocking fillers! The first one is the beard oil “for grizzly beards”, which I thought was funny. The second one is a beard balm!
As I don’t have a beard myself, I’m not sure whether these two products can be used together or not. I think it’s nice to have options though – I know some days I feel like putting an oil on my face, and others I just want to stick with serums and moisturisers. A perfect gift for someone with one of those “grizzly beards”.
Lastly, we have another pricey item… a Soda Stream! I was lucky to get this in the Black Friday sales on Amazon for a great price – I doubt I would have bought this otherwise, as the full price is a bit out of my range for presents this year.
I don’t know if you have anybody in your life who is obsessed with sparkling water, but I do. This will be a great gift for them, and I’m very excited to see how they react! I’m trying to cut down on my one-use plastics, and trying to get everybody else around me involved, too. This Soda Stream can soothe their sparkling water urges, but also stop them from buying bottles upon bottles of water from the shops!
That’s everything for my Christmas gift guide for him this year! And it also concludes my mini series of gift guides, as well. If you’d like to check the other two out, I’ll leave links to them at the end of the post!
