No matter their interests and hobbies, men are generally very difficult to buy for! Whether you’re shopping for your husband, partner, father, brother or friend, these gifts will hopefully show how much you appreciate and think of them.
Wireless headphones have really been taken up a notch in recent times. I bought these Jabra ones for my husband and he wears them every time he goes to the gym.
An all-access subscription to Masterclass
Masterclass is an online educational platform with access to lectures and tutorials taught by the best – think Col Chris Hadfield teaching space exploration, Massimo Bottura teaching Italian cooking, Aaron Sorkin teaching screenwriting or Dr Jane Goodall teaching conservation. I gave my husband an all-access subscription for Christmas last year and we’ve thoroughly enjoyed the courses we’ve taken together.
An instant read cooking thermometer
My husband is amazing in the kitchen. He has all the gadgets and does a lot of research before making any gadgety purchase. One of the best things he bought is this nifty instant-read cooking thermometer by Lavatools.
It has completely taken the guesswork out of cooking by giving us internal temperature readings of roasts, steak and fish – we even use it to check the internal temperatures of pies and pastries. You can shop the thermometer here (AU link) or here (International link).
Soft to the touch, lightweight, cosy and functional. My husband and I have given each other a lot of cashmere jumpers over the years and our parents have been the lucky recipients of cashmere as a result of our love for it!
The forever boots
I’m thinking in particular of R.M. Williams boots that are incredibly versatile and look great when worn. I bought my husband a brown pair for our wedding anniversary (for the traditional ‘leather’ gift) and he has worn his to work, weddings, fancy and casual date nights.
Monocle magazine subscription
Monocle’s international affairs and lifestyle magazine is one of the most sophisticated publications going round. It’s dense and makes for great reading. The lucky man in your life will really appreciate the top notch reading material.
As always, thanks for stopping by! Be sure to check my other gift guides that I’ll be posting here.
