The Christmas countdown is on, and there’s no need for last-minute panic buying, as Amazon has everything you need for HIM. Right now. The only hard part? Navigating Amazon’s pages and pages of best-sellers to find the perfect gift. Well, I’ve done all the legwork and put together a gift guide full of all the best Amazon-shoppable Christmas gifts to give HIM this year.
PHILIPS SERIES 9000 PRESTIGE BEARD TRIMMER
A wonderfully weighty device that’ll get to even the most challenging of facial contours with ease, this is a beard trimmer that’ll really go the distance for all those hipsters out there.
£79.99. At amazon.co.uk
MANCAVE SURVIVAL GIFT SET
This six-strong set of men’s grooming essentials is an ideal stocking-filler for the man who values self-care.
£20.99. At amazon.co.uk
GROW IT: BONSAI TREES
The art of bonsai is a painstakingly detailed discipline, with mature trees setting you back thousands of pounds. At £12.99, this DIY starter kit could save you a bomb in the long-run, complete with enough mixed bonsai seeds and coconut husk pots to kick-start their very own bonsai jungle.
£12.99. At amazon.co.uk
ORAL-B IO9 ELECTRIC TOOTHBRUSH
Keeping those gnashers in the best shape only gains importance as you get older, so a decent electric toothbrush is a must. Oral-B’s flagship was first introduced last year but remains the toothbrush to beat, with seven brushing modes, AI teeth monitoring and a smart pressure sensor that alerts you when you’re brushing too hard.
£249.99. At amazon.co.uk
AMAZON ECHO DOT (4TH GENERATION)
Amazon’s flagship Wi-Fi-connected smart speaker will do much more than check the weather and play Mi-Soul Radio. Linking up thermostats, door locks, lights and many other compatible devices, this is your very own PA. And if you just want to use it as a Bluetooth speaker with a few added extras, the balanced bass and crisp vocals sound plenty more premium than the price tag would suggest.
£49.99. At amazon.co.uk
SPOTLIGHT ORAL CARE WATER FLOSSER
If you’re looking to put smiles on faces this Christmas, this will do it. From the game-changing oral care brand giving Philips and Oral-B a run for their money, this is indisputably one of the best-looking flossers on the market. With specialised tips and operating modes aplenty, this will get to work on plaque and bacteria far more effectively than the toothpick.
£90. At amazon.co.uk
FIFA 22 (PS4)
Approaching the halfway point of an unpredictable football season, Fifa 22 will be high on the wish lists of many this Christmas. Updated with an all new goal keeper system for more intelligent shot-stopping and some next-level realism when it comes to ball physics, the line between the game and the game has never been closer.
£36.99. At amazon.co.uk
PHILIPS NOSE HAIR TRIMMER SERIES 5000
As with talc and soap on a rope, there’s no getting around the fact that gifting someone a nose trimmer at Christmas sends a rather frank message. Believe me, they’ll thank you in the long run. Philips’ Series 5000 model is one of the best on the market and will also get to work on bushy eyebrows at the change of an attachment.
£20. At amazon.co.uk
FITINDEX MASSAGE GUN
The Theragun sits high on the wish lists of many this Christmas. Fitindex does a good job of mirroring the therapy benefits on a shoestring. Neatly packaged in a portable travel case for instant post-workout relief, with six different massage heads to really hit the spot and untie knots, this will take the stress out of the holiday season in more ways than one.
£49.99. At amazon.co.uk
APPLE IPHONE 13
This year’s new Apple releases brought with it a timely iPhone upgrade. Playing by the same playbook as the last several incarnations of the tech giant’s flagship phone, with a string of technical touch-ups that don’t just make it ripe for Christmas gifting but actually do improve the product to a notable enough standard that it’s rather worth considering, it includes an upgraded camera that’s perfect for those Christmas family snaps.
£779. At amazon.co.uk
PHILIPS WAKE-UP LIGHT
A far less alarming alarm clock than your pre-set phone ringtones although I love my iphone alarm, the Philips Wake-up light is here to counteract the seasonal affective disorder of winter months with nature-inspired bird song and light that gradually re-creates natural sunrise.
£89. At amazon.co.uk
CALVIN KLEIN BOXER BRIEFS MEGA PACK
Seven fresh pairs of Calvins for the seven days of the week… Who could turn their nose up at that? Amazon offers excellent value for staples like these and we all know the men in our lives always wait for Xmas to come around for new pants and socks.
£34 for seven. At amazon.co.uk
APPLE AIRPODS PRO
Is a Christmas wish list even a Christmas wish list if there are no Apple products to be seen? Short of the latest Apple Watch and iPhone 13 releases, the active noise-cancelling AirPods Pro are an easy win this year, easily paired via Bluetooth with their complementary devices and coming in a rechargeable wireless-charging case that allows for one less wire in your daily routine.
£188.99. At amazon.co.uk
PATRÓN SILVER TEQUILA
Patrón premium tequilas still make for fantastic Christmas gift. Thanks to its crisp, citrusy notes, Patrón Silver is perfect for Margaritas and just as good for some late Christmas evening shots.
£25. At amazon.co.uk
ACQUA DI PARMA COLONIA
When it comes to buying aftershave you needn’t save yourself for the Selfridges beauty hall when some of the most coveted scents are available on Amazon. This Acqua Di Parma best-seller will have someone on your Christmas list smelling on-point right through 2022 with its sunny Sicilian citrus rounded off by masculine woody notes such as vetiver and sandalwood.
£59 for 100ml. At amazon.co.uk
LELO HEX CONDOMS
Putting the plug on late-summer 2022 sprogs, Lelo’s Hex condoms will add some luxe appeal to someone’s sex life this Christmas. The brand has its own signature hexagonal web condoms, which are extra durable, textured to prevent slippage and use natural latex to enhance pleasure. Just the thing for someone’s stocking. Maybe not Dad’s though…
£22 for 36 pack. At amazon.co.uk
