Our Christmas gift list - 2019 - Just for men...

christmas blog mens gift list 2019
This year I am starting early. You can never be too prepared for Christmas and this year is no different.
Last year I highlighted small, independent and local businesses.  I feel passionately that we should all be supporting the little guys. Each and every sale makes a huge difference to a small business. They deserve our business each and every day so please, this year, let's all try and go for the small brand.  There's nothing better than getting something unique, handmade, made in small batches, or made just for you.  Please do it. You'll make a lot of people happy (and keep them in business!).
This year I am doing the same. So, enough chat. If you have a man in your life - boyfriend, husband, brother, dad, father-in-law, uncle, step-brother etc then forget about that can of Lynx from Boots and get him one of these awesome gifts!
I'll get it out of the way - knitting is for EVERYONE. Mens knitting is on the up and it's a great way to relax, make friends or just get some quiet time and who doesn't need all of those things.  From our own collection I am going to suggest a few of my favourite kits which would be great for the guys in your life.
THE FALA HAT KNIT KIT FOR BEGINNERS
This knitting kit is our easiest introduction to knitting. My Dad made it as his first ever knit kit and he wears his all the time, he moved on from this to experimenting with his own patterns!  In our kits you get everything you need to make your hat - gorgeous 100% British merino wool chunky yarn, needles, a specially written pattern for beginners, thorough and friendly instructions all in its very own kit bag.  Perfect for first timers and a great introduction to the wonderful world of knitting!

THE NORWAY HAT KNIT KIT

 

This fab knitting  kit, the Norway Hat, is perfect for the outdoorsy type in your life! Made in gorgeous lightweight merino it keeps you warm but not too warm. Ideal for the adventurous type and for someone who wants a simple knit but with a bit more of a challenge than the Fala Hat (the yarn and needles are smaller so it takes a bit longer to make). This has proven so popular with so many people because it's such a timeless classic - wear it on the mountain or on the way to work. It's always a winner.

It's a fact. If you don't like chutneys then there is something wrong with you. The Spice Witch is an East Lothian wizard (witch) when it comes to chutneys. I'll admit it, I have some sort of chutney with nearly every meal, but even if you've not got my level of dedication to the chutney you have to admit they have a non-negotiable presence at Christmas time.  Check out these amazing chutneys, relishes and mustards for the food lover in your life.

WHISKY FRAMES

Ever wondered what happens to old whisky barrels once all the whisky has been sent on its journey to your bellies via a bottle? I hadn't until I visited yet another amazing distillery recently (Dalwhinnie - you should go, it's fab and the whisky is pretty tasty too!) and it got me thinking... Well... This is what! Whisky Frames make gorgeously cool frames out of them! These would make a fabulous gift and they've definitely got a touch of the Scotland about them!

BUY IT NOW

 

So there we go. A collection of superb gifts for the special man in your life.  These will all go in my Christmas list for the special woman in your life too as they are all so fab. 

If you buy from anyone on this list please know that you'll be supporting small businesses in the UK and I think we need that more than ever now.  We'd like to say thank you for your support and wish you a very merry Christmas and winter season.  Remember...a gift from a small business is not just for Christmas - we love our customers at any time of the year!!!

 

All the best
