  • Records and Record Player – The retro record players have come back into fashion recently, they produce great sound quality and they look beautiful sat on that otherwise plain desk you have in the corner.

>One of my favourites that I have found is from Crosley, which you can buy on Amazon They are in a leather suitcase-like box with branding on the interior but there are loads out there for you to select.

Sporty Dude

If the dude that you are buying for is into his sport then why not treat him to some new kit or maybe a sporty day out.Car Racing Day Out Christmas Present

  • New trainers – If you are into your physical activities then you can never have too many trainers, I’m sure a new pair will be greatly appreciated under the tree this Christmas.
  • Nice gym bag – A simple idea however, if they are a regular at the gym then they are definitely going to need a good sturdy bag to keep all their kit in order.
  • Sport earphonesspecially adapted headphones are a brilliant idea for any keen runners, I can’t run without music and there is nothing more annoying than that one earphone that always falls out every 10 steps you take.
  • Experience day Think outside the box and get the man you love a gift he will remember, whether it be a golfing day out or an adrenaline filled race track experience, I bet no-one else will have thought of this.
