This Christmas, more than any other year, we all need some extra happiness and excitement in their lives after this difficult year we have experienced. If you have no idea where to start when it comes to buying a gift for your boyfriend, brother, dad or friend then we are here to help. In this gift guide you will be able to find a range of gift ideas that can fit within a student’s budget. All gifts can be bought online so there is no need to leave the comfort and safety of your own home this year. Although this year has been an uncertain one, we can be certain with buying our friends and family great gifts that they deserve.


Gadget Stand - Amazon - Under £35

This gift is perfect for men who love their gadgets. This 3in1 charging stand from Amazon is useful as it saves space on your desk and allows all of your electronics to be in one place. The stand can hold an iPhone, an Apple watch and Airpods.


Personalised Chocolate Bar - Notonthehighstreet - Under £20

A very simple but very tasty gift for a man of any age. This Cadbury dairy milk bar can be personalized with any name and is a great size for sharing as well…if you’re lucky! Chocolate is always a gift that you can guarantee the recipient will enjoy.


Bulldog Skincare Set - Look Fantastic - Under £10

A good skincare routine is just as important for men as it is for women. If the men in your life need some guidance with their skin care regime, look no further! Bulldog has been given great reviews by its customers and we personally know boys that love their products! This gift set trio offers the basic necessities to establish a solid skincare routine and for less than £10, you can’t go wrong!


Lynx Gift Set - Boots - £5 and under

If you’re taking part in secret Santa at work and are unsure what to get your male colleague, this Lynx trio set is a safe option. Aftershave is something that men use on a daily basis and can always benefit from having a supply on standby! This option is particularly handy if you have a limited budget or if you lose track of time and need to pick up a gift last minute!


Personalised Hipflask - Notonthehighstreet - Under £25

If you have a male family member who is fond of a little tipple at Christmas time, this could be the perfect gift! Hip flasks can be engraved with a message or an image to add a personal touch. So invest in one from Notonthehighstreet and let your loved ones relax and be merry this festive season.


T Shirts - ASOS - Under £20

A T-shirt is a simple idea if you’re buying for a sports fan. There are many different styles of t-shirts to choose from; ones that are made from breathable material for running or simple jersey t shirts for everyday wear. Nike t-shirts are amongst our favourite as they have a varied selection of materials and colours.


Ice Stones - Mankind - £10 and under

If you have chosen to invest in a boozy gift, why not buy some ice stones to go with it? Ice stones are a substitute for ice cubes which are frozen then added to a drink to keep it cool. They don’t melt like regular ice cubes, preventing the drink from becoming watered down. They are reusable, long-lasting and a great stocking filler.


Nescafe Dolce Costa - Amazon - Under £30

This is the perfect gift for the coffee lover in your family. The Nescafe Dolce Gusto can serve barista style coffee in your own home. This gift can save some money for those who enjoy daily trips to Costa and gives you the freedom to explore new flavours! The machine is compatible with any Dolce Gusto capsules which are sold separately. They come in 40 varieties of hot and cold drinks so this machine can be used all year round and the pods can be bought easily online.


Cards Against Humanity - Amazon - Under £30 - Menkind

A card game is a Christmas staple and Cards Against Humanity is a great way of getting together all the adults of your family. This can be played of an evening with a drink in hand and is the kind of gift that can come out at family get togethers to come!
