Chances are you’re either looking for the best gifts for men or looking for a list stuff to treat yourself with. So I’ve put together this list of the best gifts for men, at all price points. I’ll update this article often, so check back the next time you’re looking to buy a gift for any bloke.
It wouldn’t be a gift guide on Whisky + Tailor, without suggesting a few top whiskies to gift.
I’ve listed a few classics that are sure to be a hit,
- Nikka From The Barrel – Japanese, watch out for the ABV (51%) barrel strength might taste best over ice.
- Talisker 10yo – A classic & my go-to midweek whisky. It’ll be available at most bottle shops and won’t break the bank.
Or treat him to a new release whisky he’s likely tried before – I’ll keep this article updated as new bottles come to Australia.
- The Glenlivet ‘The Code‘ – no tasting notes are published, you have to crack ‘The Code’ yourself. Perfect for a bloke who reckons he has a great palette.
- Sullivans Cove American Oak Tawny – Keep an eye on their website for availability. Just a single barrel will be available, so expect it to be a very popular bottle when it’s released.
Hopefully, he’ll be generous and share a dram with you. So level up your whisky knowledge with the ultimate guide to whisky.
The Book of Mormon
Tickets to a show always makes a great gift for someone who’s hard to buy for. Pick up two tickets and make a night of it – there are plenty of great restaurants around cockle bay wharf, Darling Harbour and in The Star.
Showing at Lyric Theatre, The Book of Mormon is the headline show to come to Sydney this year. Just make sure you’re buying a gift for someone with a sense of humour, some of the jokes are a little on the nose.
Treat him to the most convenient piece of tech he’s ever owned.
Cast Spotify, YouTube, Netflix & Chrome from your laptop or smartphone directly to your TV or any speaker.
No need to mess around with stupid “Smart TV” menus – just make sure you’re on the same wifi network, and your apps will automatically display the Cast button. Oh and it works seamlessly for both iPhone & Android users – miles better than Apple TV. 🙌
Pick one up from JB HiFi
Nike Epic React Flyknit
Nike just released their new range of running shoes based on the new react foam technology. Better energy return, one-piece Flyknit upper – a great gift for any bloke, either for running or weekend wear.
The iconic stock a range of the colourways, and 3hr might get you out of a pinch if you’re shopping for a last minute gift.
Succulents – Plants in a Box
A simple, no fuss, style upgrade for his desk, bachelor pad or office space – plants make a great gift for men.
Plants in a box deliver curated packs of indoor & outdoor plants for a really great price (and free shipping). Simply choose how many plants you’re after and they’ll take care of the rest. I suggest checking out their succulents, indoor plants or pots & plants bundle.
Native Union Cables
Apple makes some great devices, but their cables suck. I have been through so many of those basic white cables it’s not funny. They always fray and break at the ends, and leave exposed wires hanging out.
Replacement cables aren’t particularly expensive, but if you spend just a little bit more you can pick up these awesome braided cables from Native Union. I recommend the Night Cable for home and the Belt Cable for when you are out and about.
You can actually pick these up from the Apple Store itself.
Penfolds St Henri Shiraz
St Henri Shiraz is known to many to be the red wine drinkers’ red wine. Deep in colour, medium bodied and one of the most delicious at this price point. St Henri is one of the best gifts for men who like to cellar their reds -hopefully, he’ll share it with you.
The price varies between vintages (and bottle shops). So I’d recommend checking what years are available at Dan Murphies.
MJ Bale Shirts
Possibly the best gift you could give to a man is no more ironing… MJ Bale’s range of 100%cotton Dry’N’Fly shirts do exactly that
Morgan Cardholder – Hills & West
When I met Aisha, the founder of Hills & West 3 years ago she gave me this card holder as a gift. And honestly, I’ve used this wallet every single day since then – it’s still in perfect condition. Australian designed and handmade in Sydney.
I love the slim profile, you barely notice it’s in your pocket, yet it has enough room for cards and cash.
Fisher Space Pen
Developed by Fisher for use by astronauts in space, the pressurized ink cartridge allows this pen is able to write in zero gravity, upside down, underwater, and in extreme temperatures.
You can pick these up in Dymocks, but they’re pretty expensive (+$100). So I recommend grabbing either the Black, Chrome or Brass variants off Amazon. While you’re there, take a look at this 3-pack of field notes you see all the EDC YouTubers raving about.
Bose QC35 Series II Bluetooth Headphones
The gold standard Bluetooth headphones.
Definitely the best gift for men who travel often or work in a loud office. Bose QC 35’s are renowned as the best noise-cancelling headphones on the market. Top quality audio, full-day battery life, and no need for a headphone jack – perfect for any iPhone user.
RM Williams Duffle Bag
Every bloke needs a great leather duffle bag for weekend & business trips. Unfortunately, its rarely an expense we splurge on ourselves, which it what makes it such a great gift.
This Leather duffle bag from R.M. Williams is crafted from genuine calf leather, with metal hardware that’s built to last. Pick one up from your local RM store or from The Iconic.
Vinyl Records – The best gifts for men who love music
If the bloke your buying gifts for owns a turntable, it’s likely he already has many of his favourite albums – so you’ll need to check whats in his record collection. The key to choosing to a great vinyl is picking an album that plays well from start to finish. Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours is a great example of this, more of a journey than an album that you pick a few songs from.
Here are a few of my favourites;
