Every year I go through the same struggle of not knowing what to buy for the men in my life. Ed is the worst as he will either just ask for a gift card (I hate how impersonal they are as a gift) or he will tell me to surprise him and that is difficult as he is laid back and fussy all at the same time. I also never know what to get my dad or brothers, so putting together these gift guides and reading other people’s really helps to give me some inspiration.
I’ve worked with some lovely brands to bring together this gift guide, so I hope you find it useful!
Ed tends to wear the same underwear until it is literally falling apart, so I have taken to getting him some nice new sets for birthdays and Christmas so that he actually has some to replace the old ones. This Lacoste Underwear Triple Pack set from Mainline Menswear would be the perfect stocking filler gift for a partner.
Leather BBQ Apron
In the summer, Ed’s favourite place to be, other than the beach, is at the barbecue, hosting for friends and family. This Leather BBQ Apron from Sous Chef is made with real leather and looks so professional, sure to impress.
Phones Away Box
I am guilty for being on my phone too much so this Phones Away Box, which can fit up to 4 phones at once, including plus size models, is something I can definitely get on board with. The Phones Away box is simple yet effective and is currently on offer for just £9.99.
Always losing your keys, wallet, phone? Tile Mate is a brilliant gadget that allows you to keep track of your stuff, making sure you won’t lose it and make yourself late when trying to leave the house again! Simply download the Tile app to ‘call’ your belongings to locate them.
Nextbase Dash Cam
I have featured Nextbase’s Dash Cams in previous gift guides and would recommend them to anybody. Each model we have tried out have been fantastic and, although slightly practical as a gift, it would be well received by those into their gadgets and is so useful – we couldn’t be without ours now. This 222 model is from the new Series 2 range, with improved video quality.
Folio Society Book
Folio Society is another brand I have worked with previously and I am always so impressed with the design and quality of these hardcover special edition books. It is always a challenge choosing from the vast range of titles available on the website, but I do love how this copy of Something Wicked This Way Comes looks.
The Escape Book 2
Escape Rooms have become more and more popular over the past couple of years. I am claustrophobic so am avoiding them, but if you know somebody who enjoys the challenge, The Escape Book 2 would be a great gift! To complete the book, and to know where to continue reading, you must solve puzzles, optical illusions and anagrams throughout.
To Make Riders Faster
Know a cycling enthusiast? This is the book for them! To Make Riders Faster is about two students transforming the cycling industry by building a brand that represents everything about cycling.

Also available from Ordinance Survey, the OS Filtration Bottle 50cl has a built-in filter that eliminates over 99.9% of all bacteria, viruses, chlorine, fluoride and metals such as lead, leaving safe, healthy and drinkable water. It is the must-have companion for those walking long distances.
