Buying for the men in your life can be notoriously difficult.  If they haven’t already bought what they want for themselves then most men when asked what they would like reply, “Nothing thanks, I’m fine”.  Not helpful.

Whether you're looking for birthday gifts for men, Father’s Day, Valentines, Christmas or Just Because, all of these celebrations can cause a headache and may even result in the dreaded “socks and undies”!   Nooooo!

The first thing to think about is hobbies, how does the guy in your life spend his time?  Is he into gardening, even on a small scale, even if it’s just a few tubs on a patio, we have some really cool seed tins from Seedball.  Each of our Gardeners Gift Boxes contains three little tins packed with composted seeds so all he has to do is scatter them into the borders or patio tubs, give them a drink and away you go.  Full instructions are included in the lid. We've included a cheeky mug too and Bird and Blend tea bag to quench the thirst after a busy day (or hour) in the garden.

How about a curry and a pint?  We have just launched our new Indian Spice Gift set.  Winner of the Great Taste Awards it contains pots of essential spices, in a cool refillable tin, to make the homemade curry a roaring success.  With the enclosed recipe ideas he can’t go wrong!  To wash it down we have included a cool tin of Cloudwater Pilsner lager – perfect!

Aren’t most guys the self-proclaimed king of the BBQ!  If so, we have just the gift for any occasion.  The BBQ gift box contains everything he needs except for the meat and the heat!  We have BBQ Rubs for chicken, fish and steak, three cans to cool the thirsty chef, which are all craft brews and rather than choose one we feel it best to try the lot so we have added a cider, a pale ale and a pilsner.  They are all taste tested with high tap ratings and not something you’ll find in the supermarket.  Of course the buyer will need to be over 18 – it’s the law!  That is not all!  A full length BBQ apron from Suck UK which has printed hints and tips on the front (cool) this means he’ll have a handy reference on his person so no excuse for burnt offerings!  Last but by no means least the Valiant BBQ tool.  The Swiss Army BBQ gadget, contains a fork, knife, corkscrew, bottle opener and a spatula/scraper, the full works.  It’s brilliant and comes in a handy bag for BBQ’s on the move.

Even if the man you’re buying for isn’t into the full grooming routine, there are still the essentials.  We have created a men’s grooming kit which includes some of the most highly rated products on the market.  Taylors of Bond Street have supplied us with their sandalwood shaving set.  A pot of creamy shaving soap and a cruelty free shaving brush this lovely gift set comes 5* rated.  Add to that the Mr Scrubba Scrubba handmade soap, a bamboo toothbrush and razor from Bambaw, both plastic free and sustainably sourced, a handy sisal hemp bath mitt and to top it off the deliciously scented Workshop at Dusk candle, handmade in Manchester and with notes of Sandalwood, Patchouli and Amber, this relaxing scent congratulates on a job well done!
