Unique Christmas gift ideas for him
We've experienced a year unlike any other. Now, as the festive season is upon us, it's time to turn our attention to reconnecting with loved ones, and treating them to the ultimate Christmas gift experience. If you're struggling for gift ideas, spending time together is far more precious than a physical gift. Our gift guide for him will give you the inspiration you need to choose the perfect present, whether it's for Christmas, a major birthday or an important milestone. Our deal experts have sourced the very best gifts suitable for a range of tastes — from the adventurous type to budding chefs to sports buffs, and (importantly!) those looking forward to a long-awaited holiday. This year it's easier than ever to do your Christmas shopping from home.
Spend some quality time with the whole family with a gift they'll all love. Whether you're buying for dad, grandad, your brother, or your son, an experience gift that allows you to spend more quality time together is something you'll all remember and enjoy. From walking alpacas to a high-speed boat ride, these are experiences you can share with your whole family.
Holidays & city breaks
We've all been stuck at home for a while now, so it's about time we plan ahead for a bucket-list holiday to remember. Whether it's ticking off spectacular natural wonders, lounging on exotic Caribbean beaches, or experiencing futuristic Dubai, these once-in-a-lifetime gifts will be a treat for any recipient. Experience new cultures in exciting cities together, try local cuisine, and see sights you've only dreamed about. Most of our travel experiences are fully refundable, with dates available into late 2021 and beyond, so you'll also be giving the gift of peace of mind.
If you're on the hunt for the ideal gift for a sports fan, we've got something to suit him, too. Why not give him the ultimate football dream: a tour of his favourite club's stadium? Golf fans would love a relaxing weekend away with a game of golf and a spa treat. Other sporty gift ideas include a high-speed driving experience, fly fishing, racing-car or tank driving, or laser clay pigeon shooting. Have a look here at our collection of entertainment and days out experiences.
Food & drink
If your loved one is big on food or into cooking, treat him to a special foodie experience. Take a trip to London to experience the glamour of The Lanesborough, or enjoy a Michelin-starred meal with champagne at a Royal family favourite! Alternatively, you could stay closer to home and enjoy food-and-wine pairings from different regions, or learn how to cook dishes from different cultures. You will find great deals on fine dining and luxurious afternoon tea wherever you are in the country.
To help your loved one relax after a long year, why not purchase a relaxing experience such as an indulgent spa break or a weekend getaway? You could even add on a relaxing treatment or a lavish meal to elevate the experience. Unwind with a massage, rejuvenate the skin with a facial, or pamper yourselves with a pedicure — a spa break can be a romantic gift you can both enjoy.
If you're buying for someone who is a fan of adventure, choose an experience he'll never forget. From helicopter tours to realistic flight simulator to high-speed boat trips, and the popular Crystal Maze LIVE Experience in London, there's adventure around every corner. Whether it's to celebrate a big birthday or just a gift to surprise an adrenaline junkie, an adventure gift voucher can give him an experience you can share.
Wherever you are buying for a friend, colleague, or family member, there are plenty of experience gifts you can choose for the special man in your life.
