Too Early for Christmas? Gift Ideas for Guys

Now the summer appears to be over, I’m already looking ahead to Christmas. I love buying gifts for everybody, but I have to admit I often get stuck for gift ideas. Boyfriends can be the toughest to buy for. You don’t want to spend too much when the relationship is new. But if you’ve been together, you want the gift to be pretty special. Perhaps I should be getting something extra special to make up for the vacuum cleaner he got for his birthday (needs, must!)

I’ve decided to get ahead of the game. The sales are already starting, so I’ve put together a list of some things you might want to look out for. If you’re struggling for gift ideas, why not check out one of these top 9 gifts*:

Beer Chiller - The Chillsner seems to be one of the most popular gifts for him out there at the moment. This stick stays cold while you drink your beer to keep the drink at the optimum chilled temperature.  I love it as a handy gadget.

Mini Drone - You can now buy mini-drones that are great fun as a novelty gift. The Q4 is one of the most popular, and it will happily fly around your living room.

Magic - Is your significant other is always showing off his favourite card tricks at parties? Check out to see if he can turn his hand to mastering something a little more tricky. You can find instructionals on mentalism as well as card tricks. It might give your boyfriend a few more tricks up his sleeve for the Christmas party.

- A Bluetooth speaker connected to his phone means he can have his tunes and still take a call from you while on the move. Pick a water-resistant one for days out or camping.

Smartwatch - Most smartwatches will connect to any smartphone, giving the ultimate hands-free experience. Prices are very reasonable at the budget end, around just £35. He’ll be impressed with his amazing girlfriend for getting such an awesome gadget.

Hi-Vis Footie - With the summer gone, the nights will draw in quickly again. Keep his passion for football alive with a high-vis ball. Easy to see in low light levels, and it’ll help keep him fit.

Bluetooth Virtual Keyboard - Is your fella determined to keep checking in with work emails past 6 pm? Why not get him a Bluetooth virtual keyboard? It connects to his smartphone so he can get those email replies done more quickly and accurately. Then he’s all yours again that much quicker.

Moody Lights - If you’re spending more and more time at his place, then a colour changing light bulb might be just the thing to set the right mood. They connect to a smartphone app, giving the user control over brightness and colour with a swipe of the screen.

On-Demand TV Subscription - This is ideal if you’re looking for a way to get more time snuggled up on the sofa. Buy a month or a year at a time. You could even pop some romantic movies in the watch list! If you're feeling particularly generous it might mean a subscription to Sky Sports but at least you'd get a bit of piece and quiet.

There are plenty of great gifts to choose from this holiday season. Your guy will love any one of these. One or two might be fun for you too!
