  1. My husband’s virtually a walking model for Charles Tyrwhitt. I know he’d be delighted if I added that cashmere jumper to his wardrobe.

  2. Loads of techy boys’ toys here. Exactly the sort of stuff my partner loves. I’m going to have to do some secretive research to find out what he wants most.

    1. I was at an event last weekend (Kendal Mountain Festival) where EcoFlow had their own display. They do some fantastic items (I’ve used one of their earlier models for years) and have really grown in popularity of late. Great for when you’re on the road or in the outdoors.

  3. That camping bed is taking camping sleep to another level. I never thought that I’d be using the words Shangri La for a bed in a tent.

  4. This must be the earliest that you’ve ever got a gift guide out. Not that I’m being stingy and counting pennies but it is nice to have the suggestions before Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

    1. Charles Tyrrhitt have definitely got a Black Friday event. I know that as they sent me an e mail promoting it.

    2. Hi Jodie – possibly! We always aim to get them out much earlier than we do, but it takes quite a long time to compile each one. Every year, I make a note for myself to start a bit sooner!

  5. At the moment my husband is responsible for floors on our household management rota and he hates it.

    A gift of a Karcher Robot Vacuum Cleaner might get stop him moaning and give him the great gift of more free time.

  6. What a great idea the Vin Garde Valise is. So often we stay in a great wine region and want to bring some choice bottles home. With all this protection you know that your bottles would have a safe journey.

  7. My husband’s back-pack is a disgrace, he must have had it for at least a dozen years. It’s time that I got him a new one.

  8. Plenty here that would delight me when it comes to present opening on Christmas Day! I hope my wife had has had a good browse through this page.

  9. I’ve heard my husband muttering about needing a mobile router- whatever that is when it’s at home. If Forbes describe the Nighthawk as the Rolls Royce of mobile networking then that’s probably going to be more than good enough for him.

    1. Hi Katia – they are a much sought-after piece of kit nowadays. And this one is so portable yet powerful, and can run multiple items at once at high quality and speed. They are a major upgrade from the dongles that we used to have available to us.

  10. Panama hats always add a touch of sophistication. Even if it’s only the finishing touch to T-shirt and shorts. I need to persuade my man that he would look good in a Panama.

    1. It’s surprising how much my husband wears his Panama hat when we’re away on holiday. Early morning low sun, evening low sun and to protect himself – and his developing bald patch – during the heat of the day.

      As we’re retired and go away about 3 or 4 times a year and he wears it mid-summer at home too. That’s a lot of use in a year. It could be time to buy him a new one as a Christmas treat.

  11. My husband has changed jobs and is beginning to work from home a lot more.

    It seems to me that he’s always got a lot of windows going on at the same time so a DUEX might make his life a little easier.

  12. Whenever we go anywhere and people are flying drones my husband is absolutely fascinated. He gets into long conversations with the pilots. Then spends hours browsing drones on his laptop. I think the time has come for me to give into his obsession and buy him one for Christmas. Thanks for the recommendation on the drone from DJI.

    1. DJI drones are a solid choice. The Inspire drone is the top of the pile when it comes to drones, but of course comes at a price tag. The Mavic Pro series is also worth looking at if you’re looking for something a little more affordable.

  13. It really is time that my partner tried a new fragrance, I’ve never liked the current one.
    I think I’ll try him with Number 1 masculine for Christmas.

  14. We like to do some self-catering long weekends as it’s a good way of getting away from work. My husband loves to go shopping for the local specialities and then he cooks on Friday, Saturday and Sunday night. It’s his way of relaxing and switching off until he gets frustrated with the equipment in the kitchen. That HORL 2 sharpening block could help …

  15. He hates shopping and never buys himself any new clothes. Unless I buy him some DKNY T – shirts he’ll still be wearing the same stuff in 2024 and 2025.

  16. Oh my God! Is that really Christmas coming over the horizon already?

    I’ve not done anything about it yet. This selection will help to get me started.

  17. The man who’s got everything is one way to describe my husband. If he sees a new gizmo he has to have it. Luckily there are a few things on here that he hasn’t got which makes my Christmas shopping easier.

  18. My boyfriend’s been talking about getting a tech roll. Now that I’ve read this I know what it is, what it does and where I can get it from.

    1. They are actually surprisingly for keeping things in order in your luggage, instead of having lots of straggling wires hanging all over the place, and interweaving themselves around your other items.

  19. Great selection as always. I would also go, even if that’s not luxury as such, for an original newspaper from your birthdate. There are some shops specialized in it in France, I am sure you can find it everywhere for all newspapers !

    1. Thanks for the suggestion, François – nice idea! Although maybe more fitting for a significant birthday? I have a front page of the paper somewhere from when I was born. I forget the exact headlines but I remember finding it fascinating…

  20. Thoroughly recommend getting a drone for the man in your life. I got mine a drone last year and it certainly gets him out of the house and from under my feet! It was money very well spent as it keeps him occupied for hours on end.
