The best gifts for men in 2023

6. Alfriston Bergamot & Rose Geranium Beard Oil

RRP: £32

Beard oil is a classic gift for the well-groomed man, and this option is great for sensitive skin, as it features natural, nourishing ingredients such as sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, vitamin E and tea tree oil. It’s lightweight and absorbs quickly, so it’s an easy step for your recipient to add to their morning skincare routine for a soft, shiny beard. Plus, it’s cruelty-free and handmade, making this a great sustainable gift.

What do you buy the man who has everything?

It’s always important to contemplate the needs and wants of your recipient, considering their passions and interests, or thinking about what they might benefit from but would never think to buy themselves.

While gadgets are often a safe bet, it might be worth thinking outside of the box, too: have they recently expressed an interest in gardening and might appreciate one of the best gardening gifts? Or have they hinted at an experience they’ve always wanted to do, that you could give them as a pleasant surprise?

If you’re still struggling to find something to buy the man in your life who has everything already, try the following:

  • Consider gifting an experience: When we asked men in our lives what they would want to receive as a gift, from dads to friends and our partners, they all suggested experiences. Whether it’s tickets to a gig, theatre show or exhibition you can enjoy together, or a brewery tour or Secret Cinema experience for them and their partner, an experience is a great way to make sure they’ll never forget your gift.

  • Think about things they might enjoy, but wouldn’t think to buy for themselves: Dads, stepdads and other male family members especially might not consider splashing out on certain extravagances, such as a high-quality beard oil or a particularly flashy piece of tech. Unique gadgets will always be appreciated: think nifty devices like smart lights, wireless speakers, and robot vacuum cleaners.

  • Pay attention to any hints they may have dropped: Cast your mind back to any hints your recipient has made about a present they’d particularly like. Were you in a bookshop recently and a certain biography caught their eye? Have they been complaining that their trusty trainers are getting a bit worn out? Surprising them with something they didn’t need to actually ask for is a lovely way to show them that you’ve really considered their wants and needs.
