Christmas Gifts For Him - 10 Great Xmas Present Ideas For Men

Updated on March 17, 2011

If you're stuck for Christmas present ideas for the men in your life read on – this article provides a quick guide to the top ten hottest Christmas gifts for him this year!

1. Acqua di Gio by Armani for Men

Many men like to use aftershave or other fragrance, and Armani's Acqua di Gio is among the most popular male fragrances of the year, making it a great Xmas gift idea for men who like to smell good! It has a fresh scent, with marine notes plus fruits (mandarin), herbs (rosemary, bergamot, neroli) and woods, and it's a great choice for daily or casual wear. Acqua di Gio is available as an Eau de Toilette spray in various sizes, an aftershave and a deodorant.

2. Personal Digital Organizer (PDA)

If your male recipient loves gadgets, he might enjoy a PDA such as the PalmOne (which has evolved from the original PalmPilot), or HP's iPaq.  These palmtop computers are easy to carry and offer a huge range of features, including internet and email access, calendar, address book, notepad and more.

3. Wallet & Accessories

A popular Christmas present idea for men is the wallet, or similar accessories such as a credit card holder etc. A high quality wallet or card holder is vital to daily life, so if your man's is getting a bit old and tatty, a new one might be appreciated. And of course these items are available in a huge range of designs and price points, so you're sure to find one to suit both his taste and your budget.

4. DVD Collection Sets

Is he a fan of a particular movie or TV series? If so, a DVD set would make a great Xmas present for him. In many cases, you can often choose from the regular box set, or various special collectors editions, which may feature special packaging, or additional scenes and other extras. These can often be found online at discounted prices, so be sure to check before buying from a local store.

5. Tom Tom One XL GPS Navigator

Satellite navigation has made life much easier for drivers, and if your male friend hasn't yet got around to buying a sat-nav system, he might appreciate getting one as a gift this Christmas. Although there are many to choose from, the Tom Tom One XL range is especially popular right now that you're not likely to go wrong with.

6. Apple iPhone

The iPhone is an cool Christmas gift idea for men who want a top quality phone that has a wide range of other features too – such as a music player, video camera, digital camera, compass, web access and a whole lot more besides. You can choose from 8GB, 16GB and 32GB versions. And of course there are plenty of accessories to choose from too, which make a great (and cheaper!) gift if he already has an iPhone.

7. Apple iPod Touch

The iPod Touch is another very popular Xmas present suggestion for men (and women!), which offers similar features to the iPhone, but without the phone or camera. Available in 8GB, 32GB and 64GB versions, the iPod Touch is a music player, pocket computer, game player and much more. As with the iPhone, the iPod Touch has lots of accessories, such as cases, docking stations etc, which offer additional gift ideas.

8. Nintendo Wii

For anyone who enjoys playing video games, it doesn't get much better than the hugely popular Nintendo Wii, which is another very sought after Christmas gift this season. The Wii offers unique controllers that sense the player's motion, and there's a huge range of games to choose from, including favorites such as the Super Mario and Guitar Hero series. If your man already has a Wii, he might still like some of the accessories or a new game or two!

9. Designer Jewelry

Designer jewelry is a popular Xmas present for women and men alike, and there are some stunning male styles to choose from, especially if you shop online, where you'll find a much wider range than in the stores (and usually at better prices too). Ideas include bracelets, necklaces, rings and earrings, or body jewelry for the more adventurous male.

10. Sports or Concert Tickets

Any man who likes particular music or supports a sports team will appreciate tickets to see them live in person – such experience-based Christmas presents make a nice change from the usual 'stuff', and are a great idea for those men who seem to have everything, or who are minimalists and don't want to accumulate lots of possessions.
