When I think of getting Christmas gifts for men it sends me on edge, I am not a man, I don’t really know what men like, it is such a difficult decision for me and so I usually give them a mug, socks, chocolate, the ‘safe’ things.
Men these days don’t generally carry cash on them but tend to have a lot of cards, especially husbands and dads. They have their bank cards, credit cards, drivers license, rewards cards for several shops. This is why I chose the Laurige genuine leather credit card holder with its French style with classic lines and grained finish with 6 colours to choose from; Black, Aubergine, Burgundy, Chocolate, Pink and Turquoise it’s a fantastic gift for men of all ages. And at just £15.90 it won’t break the bank!
This credit card holder has two internal pockets holding the transparent plastic inserts in place. There is space for 12 standard sized cards in the inserts.
The credit card holder is quite small in size, slightly bigger than a credit card and will fit into a pocket perfectly, it measures 105mm x 75mm
The inserts are not flimsy ones, they are quite sturdy and less prone to rip and they have rounded edges at the bottom so less likely to catch on anything.
The next gift I chose was Bomo Art Large Half Leather Bound Journal in wild animals design. I chose this is because I thought this would make a fantastic gift for men, women and teens, especially those who like to write a journal or write in general even if it is list making.
There are a few designs to choose from, Balloons, Wild Animals, Roses, Sailing Map and Birdhouse, and they are available in Large which is just over A5 and Medium which is between A5-A6 size, and available in a journal or sketchbook. The designs really are absolutely beautiful.
This is a handmade half bound journal is made in Budapest, Hungary, it has a red leather bound spine and inside you will find 288 pages of 90gsm ivory plain paper. The dimensions are H 220mm x W 160mm x D 25mm.
Each journal is hand finished and the position and overall design of the paper cover may vary slightly from the one shown in my photos. This is because they are truly unique. There is even a certificate on the inside cover.
I really like the vintage style of this journal it is hard backed and the Ivory paper has a look of vintage to it too, there is a ribbon attached to find where you left off quickly. If this journal was in a bookcase with other books you would be able to find it straight away because of the beautiful spine.
All of the Bomo Art Journals can be embossed with initials or a line of text. Pen Heaven also offer the option of gift wrap. Prices start at £39.50.
The last gift from my Pen Heaven Christmas Gift Guide is the Sheaffer VFM Pink Sapphire Ballpoint Pen. I received Pink Sapphire but the Sheaffer VFM ballpoint pen is available in Red, Matt Black, Neon Blue and Strobe Silver too.
This pen arrived in a Sheaffer presentation box and comes fitted with a medium black refill. It is a click button to propel and retract the writing tip. It’s made from brass with a nickel-plated trim and is guaranteed by Sheaffer for 1 year.
I like the bright colour of the pen as there is no way you will not see it sitting on your desk, you will also spot if it someone else is using it. The weight of the pen is just right, not too heavy that it will make your hand ache quickly when using it. It is very comfortable to write with.
Pen Heaven offer the option to have the pen engraved and for it to be fit wrapped too. Prices start at £9.90
This would make a great stocking filler for anyone.
