Gifts for Him

So, you're looking for gifts for him, eh? Where do you start? Sure, you want something that he'll appreciate and use, but you don't want to fall in to the trap of buying him something that's stereotypical or practical.

Uhh... I shudder just at the word practical. Practical is boring! Heaven forbid you get him something for his toolbox again or something for his office. Or, worse still, 'a nice tie'. Per-lease! Most men are just big kids at heart, so, whether you're getting that special man in your life a birthday present, Christmas gift or looking for something for Dad for Father's Day, just make sure you get him something fun!

This collection of unusual gifts for him will hopefully give you some great ideas. Go on; get him something silly this time. Why not be daring - get him something with 'poo' in its name. Men love shi... stuff like that!

Star Buys

Stranger Things – the 80s-inspired sci-fi Netflix series taking the world by storm – is packed full of quirky characters, the most notable being Eleven. Blessed (or cursed) with psychokinetic abilities, using her powers has the unfortunate side effect of causing a nose bleed. Now she’ll be immortalised forever in this somewhat disturbing candle holder.

Dinosaurs are awesome, especially the ones which emit an eerie glow from their bellies. This 24cm tall T-Rex shaped lamp is powered by USB cable or 3 x AAA batteries and will obviously compliment any style of room decoration. Seriously, just look how cool he is!

Why Mother Nature feels it necessary for a man to wake one morning to discover a small tuft of foliage in each nostril and lughole, when he’s survived perfectly well until now without the aforementioned bushes, is perhaps one of life’s little mysteries.
