Christmas 2018: Top gifts for men

By Lisa Harrison | Best of | Published: | Last Updated:

The men in our life sometimes get short-changed at Christmas.

Top gifts for men

Socks, hankies and shower gel are about the extent of our imaginations when it comes to husbands, dads, brothers and grandads.

Well, think again. We’ve got a load of more original gift ideas for the man in your life.

For the metrosexual man, opt for gorgeous toiletries from Jo Malone, ESPA or Molton Brown.

Avid readers will love the beautiful books from The Folio Society or Haynes Publishing.

Meanwhile, those who like a tipple are spoiled for choice with bottles of O’Donnell Moonshine, Glenlivet whisky, M&S’s Mince Pie Martini, and Jack Daniel’s Gentleman Jack all begging to appear in stockings.

Merry Christmas!
