A Guide to Meaningful Christmas Gifts for the Modern Man

Shopping for men is any woman’s nightmare, especially when looking for Christmas presents that are more original than the generic tie, “Best Dad” mug, or Swiss knife. This year, we want to help you out by creating a guide that would make buying gifts for a man, be it your father, husband, or brother, a less daunting task. No matter his passions and interests, we’ve got your covered with present ideas that are sure to make his Christmas special.

Whiskey Decanter Set 

If the man you’re shopping for is a whiskey connoisseur, a decanter set will definitely be appreciated.  Make sure to choose one that is made of durable materials and has an original design, as these sets are also a part of any man’s room decor. Plus, this year, you can make this present more special and quite literally elevate the man’s spirits by getting him a personalised whiskey decanter set that would feature his engraved initials, an inside joke that the two of you have, or a quote that he often says. 

Star Map

The popularity of star maps has increased over the last few years, and nowadays these captures of the night sky make thoughtful presents for everyone, including gentlemen. Star maps represent a customisable portrayal of the position of the stars in a specific moment and location, which makes this gift tenfold more unique and sentimental. Think of an important date in his life, be it the birth of his child, the night he met his significant other, or  the time when he achieved a big milestone, and let the star map remind him of it forever.

Cozy Accessories 

It is a well-known fact that most men despise shopping, especially when it comes to buying something for themselves, so you doing that would make a great Christmas present. If buying  him sweaters or jackets is a risky move, you can never go wrong with getting him something as useful as Irish knit accessories. The Irish accessories such as scarves, hats, and gloves are especially great due to the thin and insulating wool that they’re made of, this being warm and chic thanks to their original designs. ShamrockGift offers a rich selection of men’s Irish clothing, accessories, and gift sets for all tastes and budgets, so finding the right Christmas present for anyone can be a breeze

Fitness Tracker

This holiday season, you can help your man stay on top of his health and wellness goals by getting him a fitness tracker. Such a smart bracelet will come in handy even if he doesn’t spend his weekends going hiking or isn’t an avid gym enthusiast, as it does a lot more than just count how many calories you burn. This device can also monitor his well-being, sleep schedule, heartbeat, and keep him informed and motivated about his progress. 

Weekend Getaway

When was the last time the man you’re shopping for went on a vacation? If the answer is “too long ago for me to remember”, it is time to fix that and organize a weekend getaway for him. Whether you’re going for a cabin in the woods, a ski resort, or maybe a beach trip, it is important for the getaway to be well-planned so that he won’t have to worry about anything and spend quality time there. The vacation doesn’t necessarily have to be all posh and expensive, but rather create lasting memories and help him relax and start the new year on a good note.
