Affordable gift guide for husbands

Okay, I admit it. I’ve not bought a single Christmas gift for my husband yet. I’m guessing that next week will be a busy one for me as I scramble around to fill that stocking. You would imagine your husband is one of the easiest persons to shop for, but it might take longer to decide than you think. What I have done is put together this little gift guide for husbands, inspired by the things he loves most. When buying gifts for your man, you have to make sure you pick things that serves his needs and likes. 


You might have seen your man occasionally complain that he has run out of razors or is unable to shave because his beard trimmer isn’t charged. This regular problem could solved by getting him a shaving club membership, which is a year-long subscription. Every month, the membership will give him a box with fresh razors and other shaving items like creams and oils. Doing this will not only help him to stay perfectly groomed, but you’ll also be able to avoid that prickly stubble!


Many men would also appreciate if you got them something ‘useful’ that would help them to be more productive. My husband has already hinted that he’d like some packs of screws for Christmas! If you’re going to buy tools, it could be something small for his Christmas stocking, or an investment tool for his ‘main’ present. If your fella frequently does work in garden, it would come in handy to get him a Husqvarna Chainsaw, which is ideal for logging. If he’s a DIY fan, maybe a new drill would be well-received (precisely what I bought for him for his birthday this year!).


Men love their wallets (my husband will wait until his one literally falls apart before getting a new one!) and when you choose to gift your husband a wallet it’s something that he will use every day. So one of the best choices you could make is to make him a personalised leather wallet. You can sew it yourself or buy a customised one with his initials, or have a message embossed inside so that he always sees it when he opens up the wallet to buy something.


If you’re going to blow the budget, this gift is ideal. Men love timepieces that are unique so if you choose to get your husband a watch for Christmas, don’t just go for an ordinary one. Why not go one step further with a smartwatch? It’ll not only complement his style, but also come in handy when he wants to manage his day. The choose a watch that can be synced with your Android or Apple devices to allow notification alerts and help him keep track of work as well as the time.


What do you think of these ideas? And what kind of gifts will you be buying for your husband this year? Leave me a comment below and let me know – I need more inspiration!
