Shopping during the festive season can be hectic, with crowds of bustling people all trying to find the perfect gifts for their loved ones. Having a plan can make your shopping easier, especially if you know what you’re looking to buy for everyone – but what should you get for the men in your life?

If you’re finding it difficult to think of heartfelt gifts your male loved ones will use and appreciate – and that won’t end up in the bin come January – keep reading.

Stocking filler ideas for him

Whether you’re looking for a few smaller gifts to put in a Christmas stocking or use as a table present, these options are ideal practical gifts for men. They’re also great ideas if you’re buying for someone you’re not close with, such as a neighbour, colleague or Secret Santa giftee.

Electric shaver

An electric shaver is a practical gift for many men, whether they’re a husband, a brother or a son. It can even be a kind and thoughtful gift for a young grandson who’s just getting old enough to need one. If the men in your life already have enough shavers, then consider getting them a maintenance kit to keep the equipment in good condition, or a refill of shaving cream or gel. Or, if he prefers to keep his facial hair, you could get him a handy beard grooming kit.


Who doesn’t need socks? It may be a cliché, but a gift of socks is a Christmas tradition. As well as everyday socks, you could opt for cosy fluffy socks for those cold winter nights, or a pair of thick walking socks for a lover of the outdoors. Alternatively, have a laugh with your loved ones with a pair of novelty socks – festive or otherwise!

Additionally, you could go down a similar route and buy the men in your life some winter warmers, such as a cosy hat, scarf or gloves. For a slightly bigger present, a pair of sturdy, well-soled slippers is a good option, as are thermal clothing and fleece jumpers. If you’re really stuck for ideas, you could even get them supplies for their favourite brew or coffee blend to keep them warm on cold winter evenings.

Games or puzzles

Puzzles and games are fun for all the family, so why not give someone a joyous few hours this festive season? Card games are easy to set up and can be played again and again for endless entertainment, while small handheld puzzles can be an excellent way to get your loved ones’ brains working on Christmas morning.


Whether your loved ones are tech-obsessed or DIY aficionados, chances are there’s a gadget out there for them. From multitools to portable chargers and beyond, you’re sure to find something to suit your loved ones’ interests. And with a practical gift such as this, you can be sure it won’t end up in January’s rubbish.

What to get men for Christmas

Sometimes, buying bigger presents for the men in your life can be even harder than coming up with stocking filler ideas. If the men you know don’t drop hints easily, it can be difficult to know what they need or want – which doesn’t make it easy to find a gift they’ll use and enjoy. Here are some ideas if you’re struggling to think of what to get:


Aftershave is a timeless classic for a reason. Wrap up a bottle of your loved one’s trusty go-to brand, or you could try tempting them with an exciting new fragrance. As well as being a meaningful gift for a young man just starting to shave, it can also help to show those who matter how much you care. And if the man in question prefers not to shave, consider treating him to a bottle of cologne or a set of beard oils to keep his trim in good condition.


For a special, heartfelt gift, consider buying a stylish watch for the man in your life. As a handy, practical item, your loved one will surely make good use of it all year round – and making the effort to pick out a timepiece that really suits him can show how much you care. Watches are available in all sorts of styles, shapes, colours and sizes, so the chances are you’ll find the perfect design.

Winter Knitwear

Finally, winter knitwear is a staple of Christmases up and down the country. Whether you opt for a novelty festive jumper or a thick woollen cardigan, the lucky recipient is bound to appreciate the extra warmth in the cold winter months. As a popular Christmas gift, there is a wide range of men’s knitwear available for you to choose from, making your festive shopping experience that much easier.
