Men's Christmas Gift Guide


Number 1 – Espensen Flavoured Vodka and Gin Miniatures

Espensen Miniatures

Espensen Spirit make a range of wonderful Vodka and Gins in the most amazing flavours. I have tasted flavoured vodka before but these yummy flavours take some beating, the Rhubarb & Custard Vodka is amazing. Now here is the good part, they are made using fresh fruit and seriously good base alcohol from Langley Distillery, and they contain absolutely no artificial colours or flavours. The word fruit stands out to me – that makes them good for me surely? One thing is for sure is they taste great. I have never been much of a Gin drinker but found them really enjoyable to drink.

The flavours available are Gin Genie Blueberry Gin, PG Sips Pink Grapefruit & Raspberry Vodka, Pump Up The Jam Raspberry Gin and Ruby Cuby Rhubarb Custard Vodka. The bottles are available to buy in 50cl, 20cl and the miniature 5cl. The miniature collection costs £16 and is available to buy on their website. These would make a great gift for anyone, even for yourself!

Number two – Hugo Boss – Boss The Scent Gift Set

Most Men love a nice aftershave, here is one that I am sure most men would like. Hugo Boss – Boss The Scent Eau De Toilette is the new fragrance for men that is irresistible and unforgettable like a savoured seduction. This scent is an irresistible fragrance with exquisite notes of Ginger, exotic and exclusive Maninka and virile leather  The effect is a full bodied scent that provokes the senses of the air that is unforgettable. The scent is an Oriental Woody Fragrance. The gift set can be purchased from the Fragrance Shop online and costs £46.50.

Number Three – Heat Holders Men’s Hulk Slipper Socks

Heat Holders Slipper Socks

These super cosy slipper socks are bound to be a great hit with men, not only are they the Hulk but they are super warm. They are 2.5 tog rating which means they are great for the colder weather and they have a hulk green fist slip resistant grip at the bottom. My other half has worn these a lot already, first thing on a morning when it’s a little bit nippy and he said they keep his feet nice and warm. Heat Holders sell a range of character socks for men all of which would make a great gift. You can buy the Hulk Slipper Socks from their website and they cost £9.99.

Number Four – Kobo Aura One eReader

KoboThe Kobo Aura One is Kobo’s new eReader and it looks great. It is the worlds first eReader with blue light reducing front-lit display, making it perfect for a bedtime story without ruining your sleep. Its water proof nature makes it durable and cosy for a bath or a day out at the beach. It is also great for travel as its battery lasts for over a month. This new device offers a 7.8”  screen size that fits more words to a page and there is an easy to use interface that offers customised book suggestions. What is also great is that the device has 8GB of storage and stores up to 6,000 eBooks – I certainly cannot fit that many books on my bookcase. I am an avid reader and love my books and with this great eReader you are able to read a good book where ever you go. Being able to use it in the bath appeals to me a lot. You can by the Kobo Aura One on the Kobo Website and it costs £189.99

Number Five – Freedom Brewery Taster Box

Taster Pack

Alcohol is always a great gift at Christmas, everyone has different preferences on what they like, Freedom Brewery have some great craft beers that any man would love to try. Treat him to a selection of award winning craft lager – choose from Organic Helles, East India Pale and King Koing to Boston Beech, Liberty Pils and Freedom Authentic. Each one of Freedom’s lagers is full of flavour, rich in character and thirst quenching. Freedom brews are a distinctive lager in the most sustainable way possible and they challenge the mainstream beers. I personally don’t drink beer so I have been making the man in my life drink them and tell me what they are like – its a hard job being made to sample such wonderful lagers. The general opinion is that they taste great and he really enjoyed the Libery Pils. You can by a taster pack of six beers for £10 from the website.


That concludes my gift guides for this year, I really hope they have been helpful. They all have some great gifts in which I am sure members in your family or friends will love Happy Shopping!
