Christmas Gift Guide For Men - Straight From The Horse's Mouth!


Mr Fluff's back with a few ideas for treating the man in your life this Christmas! Hope you get a few ideas, and if you've any other suggestions for presents for men - always the trickiest to buy for - do leave them in the comments.  

Accessorising isn’t something generally associated with us men folk but in reality we actually do it all the time, perhaps without realising it.  Belts, watches, wallets, cufflinks, the list goes on.  So, call it what you like, here’s a few accessories that have caught my eye recently and Mrs Fluff should note that these picks all make excellent Christmas gifts for that special gentleman in your life…

ONE: OK so I work in a bank and therefore probably find novelty cufflinks far more amusing than most people but come on, you have to admit that these spinning globe ones are brilliant! (£250 from Dunhill.co.uk). They're made from the gemstone azurite which gives them the bluey/greeny colour that looks just like earth viewed from outer space - well cool.

TWO: Since you can no longer take liquids through security at the airport a decent wash bag is essential for looking stylish while queuing in a stuffy, overly bright room in your socks desperately trying to stop your beltless trousers from falling around your ankles.  This Smith and Canova one (£65 from John Lewis) will save you the further embarrassment of having to show in public that Lynx Africa abomination you got as a birthday present from your Granny.



THREE: Of course you need something to put your wash bag in so how about this classy weekend bag (€199 from marksandspencer.ie).  The perfect size for a short trip away, it would last a lifetime and, being leather, improve with age.

FOUR:  OK so we don’t write as often as we used to but this pen, or ‘writing instrument’ (£280 from montblanc.com), will make the task a lot more bearable.  You can even get it personalised which I think would definitely give that extra feeling of old fashioned luxury.

FIVE:  Finally as the nights draw in your number one accessory has to be your scarf and I make no apology for doing my patriotic duty and recommending a tartan one (£18 from highlandstore.com).  I particularly like the muted colours of this lambswool scarf ensuring you’re kept warm without straying into shortbread tin territory. Hoots mon!

Well, my boyfriend wouldn't like any of these gifts, oops... :-) He'd prefer something gaming-related, or some fancy (super expensive) technological must-have.

Yes, the Montblanc pen is something I've considered giving as a gift. Great to have the idea validated by Mr Fluff! xo

Mr. Fluff is classy! Love his picks, especially the travel related stuff. My hubby travels a lot, so those things would be lovely to gift him.

Thanks a million for all your feedback :)

@Kiss and Make Up, the games I'll be looking out for this Xmas will be Borderlands 2 and the new Fifa 13. Possibly Resident Evil 3 as well. And here's a gadget I think is brilliant!

This is a great idea Emma, I can't even explain how difficult my other half is to buy for- I've bought him everything at this stage so find it really hard to come up with new ideas! Love those cuff links. Thanks Mr Fluff! :)

Great ideas! I've been trying to find something for my brother this year, and an overnight bag might be the perfect solution :)

Great ideas, I've bought cufflinks, a wash bag and a scarf for my (now) husband over the years. All were well-received! This year though he's hinting at a flying lesson ;-) Holly from www.sweetlc.blogspot.ie

Great ideas! I've suggested knitting a jumper for himself...he didn't seem keen, I've been given a list...most of which are to be found I'm surf shops!
