Every year my family go a little crazy with gifting. From cars, Mulberry handbags, flying lessons, Ed Sheeran tickets and more. The presents get a little out of hand. However, there are always 5 items that you can never go wrong with when buying gifts for men this Christmas.

We’ve created out 5 essentials list that every man needs this Christmas.

Socks

The biggest stocking stuffer gift of them all. Do men (and some women) just not buy socks all year as they know that Santa will be bringing them fresh socks in their stocking. Yes, that does mean, however, that they’ve got to dispose of those threadbare and holy socks that have become their favourites. Why not opt for a box of 15 pairs from the London Sock Company. Alternatively, give the gift of socks on subscription. The Sock Club has been featured in GQ, Forbes and The Times and is a perfect gift for that hard to buy for kinda guy.

Boxers

It goes with the territory. Socks and boxers. They won’t replace them until you do. Stuff their stocking with their favourite brand name boxers or their simple basics. You can pick up packs as well as individual pairs from most stores. If you’re in the North East this festive season why not check out the new stores in the Metrocentre.

Aftershave

There’s nothing better than a man who smells good! Our family have a standing joke about my Granda falling into his aftershave bottle as he is 100% the best smelling gent on the planet. Show your appreciation for the men in your life with a good bottle of scent.

My top five favourite scents for men are;
Kilian – Dark Lord
Azzaro – The Wanted
Creed – Aventus
Chanel – Bleu
Tom Ford – Noir

Do you have a favourite scent? We headed to the fine fragrance section in Fenwick Newcastle's Beauty Hall to dive into the Kilian Fragrance bonanza to find our new signature favourite scent.

Shaving Cream & Razors

If big bushy beards are your thing then let it grow. If the gift recipient is more about keeping their facial hair short and manageable then why not check out shaving creams and razors as a gift. Again there are multiple subscription services that send blades on a rolling basis alongside a selection of skincare products.

A Chocolate Orange

Gone are the days where you have a real orange in your stocking. It’s a tradition in our house to find a chocolate orange at the bottom of your stocking. Complete the essentials of gifts by throwing one of these into their stocking this Christmas.
