The range of gifts out there for men is way better these days than when your only options were a tie or a pair of socks.

And you don’t have to go for novelty items either, although those do of course have their place under everyone’s Christmas tree. There are so many ways to give the man in your life something truly unique and special, or something that’s going to keep them entertained well beyond the New Year.

So here’s my Christmas gift guide for the fellas. Don’t forget to check out my earlier guides for kids and for her.

The bands come in a range of colours so you can pick your other half’s favourite,
