What your boyfriend really wants for Christmas: Stocking Stuffers
We know us Janes are pretty good when it comes to present-buying – and in fact Christmas organisation in general! But with so many lists to keep track of at this time of year, we can sometimes do with a helping hand. So we’ve sought help from our brother site, Average Joes, who have pulled together ideas to buy our partners for Christmas.
Here’s David from Joes sharing some top tips on what your boyfriend really wants for Christmas when it comes to stuffing those stockings…
Stocking Stuffers: top picks
When it comes to buying your Joe something for Christmas, chances are you’ll walk around the shops and grab a load of miscellaneous bits and bobs to shove into his stocking. While you’re definitely on the right lines, you need make sure you know what you’re getting. And that’s where we come in!
Johnny’s Chop Shop Gift Sets
Toiletries are always a good place to start, and one our favourite brands at the moment is Johnny’s Chop Shop. The creation of London barbering veteran Steven Ross and cosmetics industry expert Miles Dunkley, the vision of Johnny’s is to give fashion conscious Joes honest, slick styles with some attitude. These Johnny’s Chop Shop gift sets are the perfect stocking filler. Whether it’s the ‘Get a Grip’ with shampoo, hair clay and a pocket comb, or the ‘Face Off’ with face wash and balm – it’s a great Christmas gift for any stylish gent. Head over to Johnny’s Chop Shop where Christmas gift sets are priced between £8-12.
Bluebeards Revenge Cut-Throat Shavette Kit
We don’t know if you’ve noticed but beards are still very much ‘in’. If your Joe has his own facial nest to maintain, we’d recommend anything from Bluebeards Revenge. The Bluebeards Revenge Cut-Throat Shavette Kit, for example, brings back the thrills and spills of old-fashioned shaving, but with a thoroughly modern twist. The set includes the brand’s iconic shavette, a Doubloon shaving brush, and enough shaving cream and post-shave balm for more than 50 great shaves. Head over to the Bluebeards Revenge website where the set will set you back £34.99.
Smart Polish Waterless Wash & Wax
If he’s a car nut, then we think this Waterless Wash & Wax by Smart Polish is perfect for the stocking. Cleaning cars 4 x faster than normal methods, the Waterless Wash & Wax formula safely lifts dirt and grime away from any car surface using a clever emulsification process developed by Smart Polish’s chemists. Priced at £15.99, head over to the Smart Polish website for more details.
LEGO Caterham Seven 620R
Show us a Joe who doesn’t like LEGO and we’ll call him a liar. While it might be a squeeze in most stockings, we can’t not recommend this awesome Caterham Seven 620R in LEGO form. Packed with authentic details, it features a removable nose cone, engine and engine cover, and an opening boot containing axle stands – making it an ideal gift for LEGO fans and car enthusiasts with a love of classic sports cars. Available for £69.99 over at the LEGO website.
Haynes Explains Babies Book
For any expectant dads out there, they’re going to need all the help they can get – trust us! So this Haynes Explains Babies book would be an ideal little stocking stuffer. Written by bestselling author Boris Starling, Babies is one of the first titles in the brand new Haynes Explains series, and is a light-hearted and entertaining take on the classic workshop manual. It contains everything you’d expect to see including exploded views, flow charts, fault diagnosis and the odd wiring diagram. More than handy at £6.99 from the Haynes website.
Jockey Underwear Gift Set
While you might think otherwise, us Joes love receiving pants and socks for Christmas. If nothing else, it stops us from having to buy any throughout the year! The key is to not skimp on quality and that’s why we recommend anything from Jockey. Jockey’s Cotton Stretch Boxer Trunk 3 Pack would be our tip. The USA Originals Collection pays tribute to Jockey’s roots and takes inspiration from traditional American colours, textures, and icons. The perfect combination of timeless design, premium quality and great fit. Head over to the Jockey website where the set is priced at £29.
Rolling Stones – Havana Moon CD/DVD/BLU
The 25th March 2016 is a date that will go down in both Cuban and Rock ‘n’ Roll history. That’s because The Rolling Stones became the first rock band to play a free outdoor concert to a million adoring Joes and Janes in Havana. This historic concert was captured by award winning film director Paul Dugdale and the result is Havana Moon. The CD and DVD/BLU concert film is available from any good film/record store from around £12.99.
