Stocking Filler Ideas for the Hubby

You might be aware that Christmas is coming soon and you have probably started to buy gifts for the kids already, which I must add is a lot easier to buy than other gifts.

The time to buy your partner great gifts is fast approaching, and if you want to avoid the rush of worried customers desperate to buy anything they can get their hands on for their hubby, you should buy a gift as soon as you can.

While there’s still a little time to think about what you want to get your partner, what would be the perfect stocking filler for the man in your life? Here are some great suggestions to ease the stress of buying gifts for the hubby:

Gadgets – for the technology obsessive, an e-reader, tablet or even a shiny new smartphone like the Samsung Galaxy S3 could work as gifts.

Swimwear – small yet sporty, if your husband or boyfriend goes swimming or wants to hit the beach when it gets a little warmer outside, this is great. On second thought, you might want to join him so you might want to check out Fig Leaves swimwear section forwomen and see if you can find a discount or two.

Books – if you’ve decided against buying an e-reader such as a Kindle, you might want to buy your hubby an action thriller or perhaps the latest award-winning novel. Failing that, a non-fiction title about their favourite sport or history would work too.

Holiday tickets – plane or train tickets for an adventure holiday to a mountainous area like the Scottish Highlands for a weekend would be great, especially if they like going hiking or rock climbing. 

Tools – if your man’s into DIY, he will love a new set of tools including a hammer, screwdriver, coping saw and other things he can use to build shelves, furniture or even a bird table.

Okay, so I know most of these won’t fit into a stocking, but you could always make a little treasure map and stick it into the stocking.

Happy Shopping

  1. Got any idea's for a bloke at work whom I know very little about ? I'm his Secret Santa and I have to spend ten quid.

  2. Oh men can be such a nightmare to buy for can't they - especially if you don't know them well! At least if it's secret santa he won't know if you get it horribly wrong!

    Let me have a think - shall I put it out to Twitter? x
