We live in a small town with only a few shops, the biggest probably being Sainsbury’s. We’re a non-driving family too so popping to our nearest city (Norwich) isn’t that easy, unless we want to get a train or bus, which isn’t ideal at the minute. With John’s birthday coming up soon it got me thinking about the different gifts you can buy online and I wanted to share some ideas with you.
buyagift is a site we have used so many times over the last few years. If you’re not sure what to buy someone they have a huge range of experiences and gifts, all of which arrive by post in the form of a voucher. One of the newest options is the buyagift Male Grooming Gift Box, where the recipient can fill in a short questionnaire and then receive 5-7 full size branded products to suit them!
Does the man you’re buying for like to enjoy a hot drink? Whittard of Chelsea sell some fantastic gifts and one of my favourites is the Whittard of Chelsea Luxury Hot Chocolate Gift Box. It comes beautifully packaged with a big tub of mini marshmallows, luxury hot chocolate and luxury white hot chocolate. If you’re lucky, you might get to have a taste too!
Like saving up for adventures? We do too! What better way to save up for a cool holiday or day out than in the Surfs Up! VW Campervan Moneybank from Red Candy. The design is bright and colourful and it’s something that can be used over and over again. I know seeing this on a shelf in our house would inspire me to try to save more for something fun.
John is the king of bad jokes. He thinks his jokes are fantastic but sadly, they’re not that great most of the time. I think we might have a difference of opinion here though. If you know someone similar then the Bad Dad Jokes Book* could be just the gift for them. I know John is going to really enjoy this one.
We’ve been watching a lot more television lately, even rewatching some of our favourite shows. We do get a bit stuck sometimes though for inspiration when we need to start something new. The Binge Watch Guide Book* is great for times like this and it’s full of great ideas if you can’t think of what you want to watch. I think we’ll be working our way through some of them this year!
Now that we have discovered a lot more of our local area, and know that there are some great places to visit, we have been getting out a lot more. When John and I go on walks we struggle because he doesn’t have anywhere to keep things like his phone and a drink. This Nike Bag From Mainline Menswear is ideal because it’s light and small so overpacking won’t be an issue.
Something else perfect for a long walk is a comfortable pair of shoes. I love these Lacoste Trainers From Mainline Menswear, where there are loads more options available too. Great with either jeans or shorts, these trainers will stop John’s feet from hurting and he’ll look great at the same time.
