Christmas Gift Guide: For Him (Part One)

Men in your extended family are notoriously difficult to buy for, at least amongst everyone I've spoken to anyway!  Unless they have a particular interest (golf, football, travel), it's all too easy to fall back on the smellies and socks classics.  So here are some ideas of great gifts for men, if you're stumped too.

The new Monopoly Here and Now: World Edition was created after people voted on their favourite cities around the world.  You can now race around the 22 voted-for cities, buying up entire cities before your opponents do!  When players buy a city, they collect passport stamps, and the first player to fill their passport wins!  It's a fast and fun game, taking approximately 30 minutes, and is great fun to play.  Suitable from age 8, Monopoly Here and Now: World Edition is widely available, RRP £21.99.

Lumie Bodyclock is the original wake-up light, mimicing the sunrise to wake you naturally with light rather than the harsh jolt of an alarm clock.  Waking gently like this this has been shown to improve mood, energy, productivity and the quality of sleep and awakening, as well as having a positive effect on SAD.  Steve has been trying the Lumie Bodyclock Active which has extra sleep and wake-up options, and an FM radio with digital tuning.  It is great for sporty dads who like to get up early for a run before work and is available from and several retailers including Amazon, John Lewis and Boots, RRP £99.95.

  1. We have a Lumie Bodyclock. Definitely recommend them. It's so nice on dark, winters mornings to wake up with light rather than an alarm.
