Gifts for him for every budget this Christmas

We’re in November, which means that there is less than two months to go to Christmas. With Halloween out of the way we can genuinely start thinking about the most festive time of the year and as the Christmas adverts start to trickle out, if you’ve not started to shop for those all important gifts yet, well then it’s time to get shopping.

But don’t worry, we’re not abandoning you in the sea of gift purchasing possibilities. Over this week The Style Life team are rounding up some of their favourite purchases. Divided up into For Him, For Her, Charity, Pets and a special gift guide for culture vultures, we’ll help you have Christmas gifting all sewn up in no time.

We’ve divided this category into interest base to make it easier to navigate.

For the Fashionable Man

If the man in your life is into his style that makes him even tricker to buy for. Opt for strong brand identities and classic pieces that will slot into his wardrobe and can be enjoyed season after season. A buttery soft pair of leather gloves or a sumptuous scarf is always a great gift in December. Go for investment buys over trendy fad pieces that might fall out of favour by the time spring rolls around. We’ve also highlighted a great charity collaboration that means you can gift style and charity all in one.

Special highlight: Rotary Watch

This limited edition 1 IN8 chronograph timepiece pays tribute to Prostate Cancer UK. Water resistant to 50m and crafted in high quality stainless steel, the 42mm case houses a quartz chronograph movement. The striking dial, designed in white with a tachymetre in Prostate Cancer UK’s staple blue, is additionally protected by durable sapphire crystal.

The 24hr sub dial to the right features the iconic Man of Men symbol, placed just above the date window at 5 o’clock. Discreetly printed at 6 o’clock is written confirmation of the watch’s limited edition status, marking it as a true collector’s item. The charity’s famous logo featuring the recognisable Man of Men icon is inscribed on the case back in celebration of their insatiable work, along with a number out of 1000 to signal which special watch it is. This is a fantastic gift that is perfect for those who love something limited edition and special but also want to pay it forward.

Available in a beautiful presentation box, this really is a special gift at what can be a difficult time of year for so many.

Prostate Cancer UK will receive a 10% + VAT donation from the sale of every 1IN8 watch to support them in their mission to stop prostate cancer being a killer.


The Sporty One

If the guy you’re buying for is into his sport then really the world is your oyster but price point plays a major part in this category. If you’re going big or clubbing together with other family members then you might want to check out the Apple Watch collaboration with Nike, perfect for someone that loves their sporty gadgets. Otherwise think about individual sporting needs that make getting active a little more fun and stylish. From new trainers to a sleek water bottle. Got someone that is more of a spectator? Then the Oliver Bonas sports trivia quiz game is the perfect winter break treat too.
