Christmas Gifts for Him. As ever I always struggle for inspiration for the men in my life this time of year. Especially the husband! This year the focus has seemed to be very much on food and drink! His two favourite things outside of the family. Hopefully, it will give you some ideas for the more different men to buy for in your lives. Or failing that some nice treats to celebrate this festive season.
Sobersauce Craft Beer Discovery Pack

Including a mixture of lagers, pale ales and medium-bodied ales. It makes a great gift for everyone, not just people who choose not to drink at all. Whether you’re interested in trying new flavours or reducing your alcohol intake, perhaps you’re bored with the usual soft drink choices and want something with lower calories, lower fat and great taste, then Sobersauce is a great choice. You can purchase the discovery pack along with subscription options direct from their website.
I remember marzipan from when I was young, it was synonymous with Christmas. Of course, you can now eat it all year round. Our favourite by far is the German brand Niederegger. The business created in 1806 is still family-run today. With the secret of Niederegger marzipan being handed down from one generation to the next. Aromatic premium-quality almonds are the most important raw ingredient in the production of Niederegger marzipan. Kissed by the sun, their almonds have a characteristic sweet nutty flavour. For generations, they have been heating the almond mixture in roasting boilers over an open fire. This method releases the unique aroma for which Niedergeger marzipan is famous the world over. Available to buy online direct from the Niederegger website or sold in Selfridges, Lakeland, John Lewis and Chocolates Direct.
AnySharp Knife Sharpener
The AnySharp is the world’s best knife sharpener. Bold claims and we were a little bit sceptical if honest. But as soon as we tried it my husband declared he would never use another knife sharpener again. Simply put the device onto any solid worktop and pull the level so it’s suction sticks it firm. Grab a knife and gently pull it through the blades 2-3 times and within seconds and you’ll have sharp knives once again. The AnySharp has a ten-year warranty and available in a range of stunning colours so suit every style. The Anysharp costs from £9.99 from Amazon*
The Spice Pioneer – Power Pods
If the man in your life loves to cook then Power Pods from The Spice Pioneer make great stocking fillers. Available in five different varieties Peri-Peri Chicken, Fajita, Chicken Lollipops, Katsu Curry and Chili con Carne. The power pods save you the trouble of buying individual spices and having to measure them out. Instead, all you need to do is simply add these spice pods to the food as you cook. To make life really easy there is even a recipe and cooking method printed on the back of each box. Creating gourmet results quickly and easily for the whole family to enjoy has never been more simple. Available individually at £1.99 each or a packet of six for £9.95.

Taking influence from all over the world creating items that are always something a little different from the traditional high-street stores.

Just like this Fabulous Floral Shirt, since everyone needs to feel fabulous now and again. This cotton shirt has a bright blue floral pattern which is both eye-catching and unusual. Available in sizes small through to XXL, with a price tag of £38 you can buy directly online from the Joe Browns website.
Sophie Conran For Portmeirion Cafetiere
A gorgeously classic cafetiere it is hard not to like this beautiful Sophie Conran For Portmeirion Cafetiere. This sleek, tall design with Sophie’s signature ripple effect and an elegant silver press is a modern addition to your tea tray. Fear not if you need to reheat, as this porcelain piece is safe to put in the microwave, and you can clean it in the dishwasher afterwards. Its capacity is 800ml and comes presented in a lovely gift box. Which could also double as a storage box, although this does deserve to be used every day and not saved for best. It has an RRP of £52.50 but at the time of writing it costs £42 on the Portmeirion website.
Mermaid Salt Vodka
Distilled in the only distillery on The Isle of Wight Mermaid Salt Vodka is a must for the perfect dirty martini. Not only is it handcrafted but it is also shot through with locally sourced sea salt. Enhancing its smoothness and accentuating its subtle flavour.
The super attractive and tactile bottle is plastic-free and 100% recyclable. Featuring an all-natural cork with a wooden top and a unique, plant-based and biodegradable seal. The distillery has also demanded all its suppliers accept new sustainability challenges. Such as stopping the use of bubble wrap and sourcing alternatives at every stage of the production and distribution process. It has an ABV of 40% and can be purchased online for £36.95. It is particularly good for cocktails where the salt brings the other flavours to life.
Tog 24 Toasty Men’s Pant Set
Christmastime means new PJs and loungewear in our house. And these Toasty Men’s Pant Set from Tog 24 is perfect, whether you’re sleeping or lounging. They have an elasticated waist and super soft fabric which makes them so very comfy. Coming with 100% cotton, brushed check flannel trousers with a drawstring and two pockets on the hips. And a short-sleeve grandad collar T-shirt, in deep colours inspired by a setting sun over Yorkshire rocks. A great gift they come in a check flannel bag making it ideal for trips away. The RRP is £45 and can be brought online direct with Tog 24.
Oak Highland Cow Serving Board by Scottish Made
Made from Scottish Oak and inspired by the beautiful highland cows that roam around Scotland this eye-catching highland cow engraved serving board is every bit striking as it is practical. Measuring 30cm this serving board offers a fun and contemporary way to slice and serve cheese and biscuits to guests after dinner or at more informal gatherings. It also makes a very good chopping board.
I really like that the wood is harvested locally by a Fife-based not-for-profit organisation. Who are dedicated to ensuring the future of Scottish woodlands, improving the environment, and boosting local economies by providing training and work opportunities. The board comes lovingly hand-tied with sweet Scottish Oak ribbon and a swing tag making this board a lovely little gift. With an RRP of £36 you can buy it online from Just Slate & FamilyBrands. There are also two other designs to choose from a stag and a traditional thistle.

Duo Evo Plus 10-in-1 Multi Pressure Cooker
We have been trying out the Duo Evo™ Plus multicooker for the last couple of weeks and it has made a big difference to how we are operating as a family. It lives up to its claims of easy to use, easy to clean, fast, versatile and convenient. Not only that is it big enough to easily feed us as a family of four but with a capacity of 5.7 litres, it could easily feed six.
The 10-in-1 Duo Evo Plus is a pressure cooker, rice cooker, slow cooker, yoghurt maker, steamer, sous vide, sauté, food warmer, cake maker, and stockpot. It also has 48 pre-sets that take the guesswork out of cooking. Meaning that you can literally start cooking as quickly as 1,2,3. We have really benefited from the fact that it allows us to get dinner on the table so much quicker. Especially after school when we have about an hour and a half between walking through the door and bedtime.
Using the pressure cooker we have noticed how tender and juicy the meat is. I have even tried making brownies in it and they have been declared the best ever by the boys. The fact that the inner pot that can be used on all hobs including induction and easy-grip handles let you move between appliances as recipes demand. Has been really helpful as we get used to using it. I also really like the large LCD display which makes everything simple to understand. It provides everything you need to know about cooking time, temperature, pressure and status. Meaning you can easily see where the dish is in the cooking process.
More help …
If you are a little overwhelmed then the Instant Pot website has tons of information, videos and recipes to get you started. The Duo Evo Plus 10-in-1 Multi Pressure Cooker* can be brought online or from your high street department store or electrical store it has an RRP of £129.99
