Gift Guide: The Man Edition

It's another gift guide!  First up I wrote up one for the student/blogger in your life (basically wrote it for myself) here and then one for the quirky cool girl in your life (here).  Now it's one for the boys in my life...
This is the Man Edition

Instead of splitting this one up into separate posts I've smushed them all into one. 

Remember these are all genuine things I would buy for one particular person, so that might be why some of them seem quite eclectic! 
My Brother - Andrew

Now to give you some context, my brother is a guys guy, outdoorsy, 20.y.o student!
- A rucksack because he needs a new one.
- Some sweaters because he never buys clothes for himself
- A hipflask because #student 
- Shooting related cufflinks 
- New flip flops because his current ones are disgusting
- Outdoor hat, jacket and ear warmer (the Montane ear warmer is amazing- Matty the BF already has one)

My Dad is the average 50-something year old Dad, which makes him notoriously hard to buy for, so I've picked: 
- Fireworks because he likes them
- Fire pits because he is currently re-doing his garden and wants to put one in
- Brogues because it's the only fancy shoe he wears
- Fun little keyring

Outdoorsy Photographer Boyfriend

As you probably know Matty is the one responsible for most of the beautiful pictures on this blog, he's a photographer and loves being outdoors with his dog Tilly.
-  I picked a bunch of clothes from his favourite brands - Barbour, Montane and Hunter. 
- Some camera themed accessories
- A keyring in the shape of a spaniel
- A nice satchel, this one looks big enough for all the stuff he carries around!
Student / Chef / Golf Mad Bestie - I 

My bestie Ian is a student who loves to cook, drink whisky and play golf. 
- Mechanical cocktail shaker because he recently mentioned getting into cocktail making and loves some tech. 
- Booze related stuff!
- Golf clothing
- The BBQ bucket is a cool concept and easy to move if he wants to take it to the beach or elsewhere!

Bestie Who Likes The Finer Things - B
Brian is pretty easy to buy for- he likes the finer things in life, but that does mean it is hard to afford to buy him something!  So I've picked:
- Some Burberry because we both agree that a Burberry trench would be the ultimate #treatyoself
- Bally is his favourite brand ever (and he needs a new wallet).
- Candles because he loves them
- Orange Ralph Lauren shorts because he loves RL and all things orange
- Shoe shine kits because he has a thing about shiny shoes
- Choice footwear from Sperry and Le Chameau because only the best will do!

So there is the man edition of my Christmas gift guide, what do you think of my picks?
