Native Union has a fantastic range of chic products, perfect for the discerning man this Christmas! From phone cases to computer accessories they’ve got everything to tick the box from stocking fillers to blow the budget gifts! Here I’ve rounded up a few of my favourites…
The Native Union JUMP Cable is a two in one charger and battery booster! It’s a stylish and compact little gadget which fits easily in pockets or bags and doesn’t leave you with tangled cords to organise! Available in a variety of colours, it’s the ideal gift for the man who loves their phone! RRP £39.99
This unique looking phone case is made from real marble! ACTUAL MARBLE! How cool is that! With its smooth, sleek design it’s actually the world’s first real marble phone case. It’s incredibly lightweight, so you wouldn’t believe it has an actual metamorphic rock on it, whilst retaining the stunningly intricate design you’d expect from this most elegant of rocks. Cold to the touch, shatter resistant and oh so cool, it’s an absolute must for the cool, calm and collected man! RRP £69.99

Sugru Rebel Tech Kit – £10
This fun kit from Sugru is the best possible gift for the man who likes to tinker! With 14 separate projects to keep them occupied it’ll be open as soon as they rip off the wrapping paper! With small DIY projects, ranging from fixing frayed cables to securing your iPad just about anywhere, it’s honestly the perfect thing to keep them busy whilst you sneakilly tuck into the Christmas chocolates that are there for ‘sharing’ 😉 The kit comes with an instruction booklet detailing the 14 projects, so just tell them to read the instructions on this one! The perfect stocking filler this Christmas, that’s for sure! RRP £10
I don’t know about you, but I’ve always received a razor in my Christmas stocking, as have my brothers, and every year the technology gets better and better! The Gillette Fusion ProSheild Chill has state of the art FexBall technology to ensure a smooth shave as well as the ‘cooling technology’ to make sure its an enjoyable one! Whether the man in question is clean shaven or just likes to keep things neat, you can’t go wrong with a great quality razor! RRP £12
Braun Styling Range – from £39.99
According to Braun 55% of men restyle their look depending on the occasion, and body hair is absolutely part of this. Beards are still all the rage (THANK THE LORD!!!) and many men spend a lot of time making sure their look is honed to perfection. Braun has a fantastic range of styling products for everywhere from your head to your….um…toes!
The Braun Body Groomer is perfect for any man who likes that a sharp, clean look. With two functions they can easily trim or clean-shave body hair quickly and effectively. It can be used in the shower, and more importantly for many can be used in those ‘sensitive areas’ to give a clean shaven look all over! RRP £39.99
The Braun Beard Trimmer is a precision instrument and works spectacularly! I have given this to my other half as an early Christmas present and it works a dream! With 25 different length settings he can achieve pretty much any look, from big and bushy to barely there – which my other half found out the hard way by accidentally shaving off his moustache! Luckily it actually looks great, but make sure to tell the man in question that 1 is pretty short and to start higher if they’re not sure! It’s so easy to use, and it works perfectly for trimming those wispy beard bits that seem to grow faster than the rest. The perfect gift for the bearded gent in your life! RRP £49.99
Penclic Mouse B2 – £80
Did you know that there are 123 ligaments and 27 major joints in your hands? No? I didn’t either, but it makes sense that because of this that the working environment puts hands under an immense amount of pressure. I’m well aware that the set up of a desk is important, and have recently been thinking about investing in one of those kneeling chairs, but until now had never considered the effect that my computer mouse might be having! The Penclic replaces your computer mouse, with no set up required, and has a swivelling pen design to give your hand a more relaxed and natural grip. If the man you’re buying for spends a lot of time by a computer then this is the perfect gift to give them a better working environment! RRP £80
Zippo Lighter – £14.95
Zippo lighters are timeless and beautiful, and despite giving up smoking more than two years ago I continue to have a genuine obsession with them! They make excellent gifts, even for non-smokers who for example use a lot of candles! Zippo can engrave simple chrome lighters like this one for under £15 which makes this the ideal present or stocking filler! RRP £14.95
LoDo Daypack Backpack – from £74.99
The contemporary design of the LoDo Daypack Backpack makes it the perfect bag for work or leisure. With a thickly padded laptop compartment suitable for computers up to 15.6″, a space to store your iPad or tablet, a high quality cotton canvas exterior and leather touch points it is the height of fashionable accessorising. Also boasting a space to zip in your phone and easily accessible exterior pockets (perfect for keeping those need to get to items like keys!), it’s a great gift this Christmas! RRP £74.99
As long as there is Christmas to celebrate, there will be the need to stock up on multipacks of pants and t-shirts! It’s just a fact! I genuinely can’t think of a Christmas where my brothers haven’t been gifted pants, socks and tops, and I’ve not been given bras, knickers and PJs! It might just be my house, but I think not… Hugo Boss is one of the world’s most loved and trusted brands, and they make excellent clothes, which makes it even better that you can pick up a whole variety of products from the website Scotts Menswear. Hugo Boss aren’t the only brand the website stocks, so it’s the place to go for any men’s fashion needs this Christmas! RRP £35 each
For that sleepy head you’re so fond of, this stylish, classic alarm clock is the perfect gift! Adding a touch of modern design to any bedroom, its simple design means it’ll fit into pretty much any decor (unless you live in a 19th century french castle…then maybe this one’s not for you!). The feature that most attracts me to this, is the duel alarm system, which means you can set two alarms – one for you and one for your partner! As someone who constantly worries about sleeping through my alarm because my other half gets up two hours before me, I can’t tell you how useful this feature is! Get it for the man in your life and make sure he’s never ever late again! RRP £25.99

Make sure they keep spills to a minimum and banish drinks rings forever by grabbing these for their stocking! Available in a couple of different designs they’re the perfect little addition this Christmas. RRP £12 (currently on sale for £6!)
Anyone else exhausted already?! Bring on the mince pies!
