With a budget of around £100 to spend on the man in your life this Christmas, you might be tempted to go for a tech gadget. However, gimmicky gadgets quickly lose their appeal and end up sitting in a drawer.
Another option is to get a really nice quality accessory or clothing item from a luxury fashion brand that can be used year after year, or a premium grooming kit that might be something he’d never buy for himself, but he’d love to receive as a gift.
The House of Fraser collection has plenty of choice when it comes to men’s gifts, and plenty of items will cost you less than £100. We’ve put together a list of our favourite items that would make great Christmas presents this year, so you can get your shopping done with the minimum of fuss whether you’re shopping for your father, your husband, or your son.
A good quality washbag can be used for years and this Ted Baker leather washbag makes a particularly useful gift for frequent business travellers, but it will come in handy for pretty much anyone for weekend trips and nights away from home. Available in a choice of black or blue leather, it has one large main compartment with a zip fastening and a smaller front pocket for easy access to small items.
Cufflinks are a fitting gift for any man who dresses up for work or attends a lot of formal social events. The classic Paul Smith stripes are instantly recognizable on these whale back cufflinks, which come in a smart black presentation gift box
The cult Acqua Di Parma fragrance makes a luxurious gift for the modern man and this gift set includes a 100ml Eau de Cologne, a 75ml hair and shower gel, and a 75ml aftershave balm. The products are presented in a gift box in the iconic shade of Acqua Di Parma yellow
This chunky knit Superdry cardigan is the ideal fashion item for adding extra warmth to casual outfits this winter and is available in a choice of Cream, Navy, or Grey. If you’re looking for a cosy knitwear item to gift that’s a bit more substantial than a hat or scarf, this might be the one.
Christmas jumpers have been one of the season’s hottest items for a number of years now and are no longer the disappointing gift you receive from your granny. Any modern man would be delighted to receive this traditional fairisle knit jumper, in 100% fine knit cotton.
Classic Chelsea boots never go out of style and can be worn with a number of different outfits from casual to formal. These black leather boots with a rubber sole will keep feet dry in dreary weather this winter and should last for years.
You can’t really go wrong with chunky jumpers so we’re including another knit on our list. This cable knit crew neck jumper from classic British brand Barbour is made of a wool and cotton blend, which feels great next to the skin. It’s available in navy or wine colours and a range of sizes.
Wallets are a popular gift item for good reason – they’re stylish, useful, last for years, and it’s one of those things that you don’t really think about buying for yourself. This Hugo Boss wallet is one of the best quality wallets you’ll ever come across, made from smooth leather in a simple silhouette with a subtle stamped logo. It has several card slots and a separate compartment for notes.
There’s nothing nicer than lounging around on Christmas morning in new pyjamas. This Hugo Boss lounge set is the ultimate in comfy casuals and just perfect for cold winter mornings when you don’t have to be anywhere in particular. It’s sure to be a well loved and well worn gift for any man.
Does the man you’re buying for already have a wardrobe full of clothes and you’ve exhausted all your other gift ideas over the years? Think about buying an experience instead like this Ferrari and Lamborghini driving experience. He’ll get to test drive both sports cars and see which one he prefers for a 3-mile blast around a racing circuit.
