This week, Peter gives some advice on 5 unconventional christmas gifts that your partner will love! OH HO so festive!
Christmas is almost around the corner, and if you still haven’t started thinking about the perfect gift for your boyfriend or husband, it’s high time you did! Try to stay away of those traditional presents such as a holiday tie, an ugly Christmas sweater, or a pair of brand new cufflinks – these are so boring! Instead, come up with some amazing solutions that’ll sweep him off his feet. Here are five of them, so stay with us and check them out!
The ultimate beard grooming kit
If your paramour is rocking a beard and has a thing for skincare, you probably already know that it needs much more care during winter. Cold and windy weather can harm his skin and scruff and make it fragile and dry, which can lead to split ends. This is exactly why a skincare or beard grooming kit may be the perfect gift for your darling. Make sure that it contains an organic beard wash and moisturiser, because regular grooming is a must. You can even go for men’s grooming subscription boxes – such gifts often contain all of the the hair and moisturising products the skin needs. The only thing left is a cool packing – make sure that it’s wrapped in fun Christmas paper or even some moustache print!
Cute pair of PJs
Is there anything that screams ‘Holidays!’ more than cute, festive PJs? We don’t think so! Get your partner the one you chose all by yourself and pick some of the loveliest materials and prints out there. If you are looking for patterns, prints like stripes, tartan or even florals are always a perfect match. Possibilities are infinite! As for the material, lightweight Micro Modal® may be just the perfect one – check out some of the best Tani USA pyjama sets as they provide warmth and that cosy feeling typical of a holiday time!
A dartboard for entertainment
No matter if you choose an electronic or a traditional dartboard with the score board, trust us – you won’t make a mistake! Your man will love this kind of surprise, especially if he’s into that kind of entertainment – and the fact that you got it for him will make this gift even more special. If you opt for a regular one, make sure that it’s made from super dense fibres that’ll allow it to self heal – avid players will adore this! On the other hand, electronic dartboards should feature awesome sound effects and high-tech scoring system. Just don’t forget to get him some darts, too!
Homemade beer brewing kit
Guys love beer in the same way girls love shoes – some things in the world just can’t be explained! If your darling belongs to this group, he’ll absolutely adore this kind of present. A homemade beer brewing kit should include the specialised equipment he’ll need in order to brew his own beer. It includes a fermentation jug with cap and airlock, bottle filler, mini siphon and tubing, cleanser, bottle capper and pry-off caps, and a beer recipe kit. This revolutionary gift will tell him ‘I love you, merry Christmas’ more than anything else!
Put a smile on his face
If your partner is very forward when it comes to beauty and fashion, you should know that he’s a keeper! Seriously, if the two of you share the same passion for beauty treatments and fashion trends, you can say that you’ve found your soulmate! If you know that he takes care of his teeth, you’ll also know that he’ll appreciate a good old teeth whitening treatment. Apart from that, Invisalign is a huge trend in Sydney nowadays, and it’s perfect if your darling won’t mind having straighter teeth. In that case, you can organise a consultation with the experts for him, which is one step towards more a more beautiful smile!
As you can see, thinking out of the box definitely pays off – especially when it comes to choosing a perfect Christmas present for your boyfriend or husband. Those traditional gifts are so predictable and extremely boring, so invest a bit more effort and you’ll see – the thrill on his face when he opens it is priceless!
