Buying christmas gifts
for the opposite sex can be a difficult task. It often involves trawling through gadgets you can hardly pronounce (let alone understand or comprehend wanting!) only to leave the shop with an overpriced toy in your hand and a salesman’s reassuring words in your head.
Whether they’re your boyfriend, best friend, brother or father, there’s something about men us women just don’t understand. So to save you a last minute trip to the hardware store, we asked the men in our life what they’re wishing for this Xmas to bring you a gift guide
guaranteed to spoil your other half.
The Christmas gifts he’s hoping for:
The Suunto Kailash is so much more than a watch. Designed for the adventure seeker, this innovative timepiece is built with GPS capabilities and includes features fit for an explorer such as altitude, sunrise/sunset, and daily step count. With the Suunto Kailash on, not only will he never be late again but don’t be surprised to find yourself dating James Bond.
Is your partner a diver, spearfisher or keen aqua man? The SEADOO SEASCOOTER is an inspired gift that’ll allow him to save air, stay down longer and improve his diving experience. Capable in depths up to 100 feet and rated no. 01 by Diving Science and Technology, this is the ultimate dive propulsion vehicle for the diving enthusiast.
The perfect addition to every man’s attire, Garrett Leight Sunglasses are timeless accessories. Made in California, these chic shades don’t skimp on quality, built with polarised lenses and durable frames. We love all their quirky yet classic designs but can’t go passed the Kinney Sun in G.I tortoise laminate.
Caffeine lover? Give him his daily fix by adding a Nespresso machine to the kitchen. With a diverse range to choose from, there’s an appliance for all levels of addiction. For the coffee connoisseur, choose Nespresso by KitchenAid in Onyx Black. With six programmed cup sizes and a scale of strength and volume options, it’ll suit all coffee preferences.
Does your other half love retelling his active feats? Let him relive them by catching them on camera with the latest release from Go Pro, GoPro Hero4 Session. Smaller and lighter than the previous editions, this pocket-size camera has powerful photo capture and professional video quality. Plus it’s durable and water-proof making it ideal for all activities from surfing to bungee jumping, or simply the weekend picnic.
For Christmas in the southern hemisphere, the stand up paddle (SUP) board is the ideal gift to keep him active and occupied all holiday. We love Adventure Paddleboarding SUPs for their premium quality and classic bamboo design. The perfect addition to his toy cupboard, not only is this present a great source of exercise but it is guaranteed to provide endless hours of enjoyment.
