He’s tricky to buy for, isn’t he? What you get for your partner probably boils down to your shared past and the holes in his inventory that you’d like to plug, but here are a couple of timeless and universal ideas for gifts for your man. For one, all men need to shave, and a bespoke, personalized shaving kit will all the additional gear is a practical and personal present that’s guaranteed constant use. Or how about a new classy briefcase or work bag to impress his coworkers with?

At Christmas, Santa is bound to deliver a good wholesome number of toys for your children, so it’s up to the grown-ups to find something a little more practical to gift them. Art equipment is a super present to inspire creativity and artistic prowess in your children - whatever their age - while books suited to their level of literacy will enchant them in ways that television and video games cannot. Practical gifts for kids should aid their learning without striking them as boring - so have a think and get something educational and fun.


The kids’ grandparents that is. They’re likely joining you for Christmas, and they’ll be expecting to be giving far more than they’re receiving. To surprise them with a real treat, consider the range of scooters – from mobility scooters to medical scooters, to handicap scooters - that’ll aid their ability to get around independently. It’s a present that’s only appropriate for a certain stage of elderly life, but if your parents happen to be occupying that stage, then it’ll have them zipping around local sidewalks, into stores that they haven’t been to in years, which will bring a real element of vitality into their lives.


A gift from you to you might feel ever-so-cheeky, but it’s what keeps moms sane during the upheaval of the festive season. Moms who’re assembling the family, cooking the meal or readying the home for guests ought to feel comfortable enough treating themselves, whether that be with a night out with the girls, or a spa break to recuperate once it’s all over. Plenty of moms report that Christmas is simultaneously their favorite and their least favorite time of year, so anything you can do to help things become less stressful would seem an appropriate practical step.

This guide should help you think practically about the gifts you give to all your family members as the festive season draws nearer.
