What to get him for Christmas

What to get him for Christmas

We seem to be hurtling towards the end of 2018 at breakneck speed and before we know it the festival of ‘good will to all men etc’ will be upon us. All of those gifts to buy and more of the same dull bubble bath or socks to choose. We at Unusual Designer Gifts say NO to boring present shopping and YES to thoughtful inspired and downright gorgeous gift giving!

Today we thought we’d focus on the most difficult of ‘giftees’ and the sad recipient of handkerchiefs, socks and soap on a rope to name the few..

MEN  Yes, whether we’re talking about your Dad, brother, Uncle, Grandfather, Bert next door, they can be notoriously difficult to shop for without looking like you grabbed the first thing off the supermarket shelf.  Here at Unusual we have a raft of ideas with perfect presents to match; we thought we’d give you a few ideas to be getting on with. 

DAD the enigma that is the Pater. Why not this year give him something he’ll use and look good at the same time. If he’s a budding Gordon Ramsay you might want to spoil him with a fine Carving Set from Flint and Flame. He’ll be proud as punch carving the turkey on Christmas day or the Sunday Roast.


Or he could be turning Japanese with this Santoku 6”Professional Kitchen Knife, a good all round knife in a smart wooden presentation box.


BROTHER If you want to impress him this year may we suggest the Touchdown Charging Business Edition Wireless and Cable Free Charging Pad. Or if he’s been really good this year you could totally spoil him with the Touchdown Charging Starter Pack for Iphone.  If he’s been really good..



UNCLE Perhaps Uncle likes to hit the odd bucket of balls and the 19th Hole. May we present a fun gift from our friends at Men’s Society The Golfer Essentials Kit Gift for Men; this contains important stuff like sunscreen, golf tees, hand cream and back rub!


For the 19th Hole there is the Whisky Lovers Kit which is bound to be received enthusiastically by those who adore the Angels Nectar. This includes two whisky tumblers, whisky cooling stones, a notebook and pencil to make tasting notes..or shopping list reminding him to buy more whisky perhaps?


HUSBAND / BOYFRIEND/ GRANDDAD This can be either easy or impossible depending on circumstances so we’ll give you a few ideas and recommend hot footing it over to unusualdesignergifts.co.uk for further inspiration. So..

We love the Ginkgo Brick Click Clock in White Marble; a stunning alarm clock which is activated by a click of the fingers or clap of the hands and shows the time, date, temperature alternately. No more scrabbling around for the light switch in the middle of the night to check the time, the numbers seem to ‘float’ and it’s a really good looking and useful piece of kit.


Or how about the equally stunning Ginkgo Halo One Aluminium and Wood Effect Bluetooth Speaker. We can personally vouch for its sound quality and would look amazing wherever it is placed.


For a really special gift which all the family can enjoy as well as Dad/Granddad/significant other, take a look at our Home Football Games table from Mightymast.  Strong enough for the most enthusiastic of participants, the only issue you’ll have is will Dad/ Granddad/ Boyfriend get a go?https://unusualdesignergifts.co.uk/collections/gifts-for-him/products/mightymast-striker-red-fas-italian-home-football-games-table-1 

If table football isn’t necessarily their thing how about the Mightymast Multiplay 34-in-1 Games Oak Wood Table? Yes we did say 34 games which should keep everyone occupied until New Year, check out the link for all the games included!
