Instead of buying presents for your family and friends this year, why not make a few yourself? Handmade gifts will show your loved ones that you put time, thought and energy into creating something truly amazing for them! If you have a special man in mind, your friend, father, brother, grandpa or husband, make sure you make something fantastic for them for Christmas! We have collected 20 best Christmas gifts for men to help you out! This way you will definitely be able to find a great collection of Christmas gift ideas for him!
1. Sawdust is Man Glitter – Christmas Gifts for Men
Have you been considering getting your special man friend something cute for Christmas? Why not go for a homemade Christmas tree ornament, after all, it is the season! Instead of going for something sparkly and glittery, put your own twist on the ornament. Get a see-through ball decoration, and fill it with sawdust. Then with the help of a sharpie, write on the ornament that “sawdust is like man glitter.” This gift will definitely put a smile on the recipient’s face. It’s also great because it’s easy to put together and is cheap!
2. A Cute Bowtie – Perfect and Festive
Another fantastic idea on what to give your male friend or family member for Christmas is a bowtie! Instead of getting him a boring, storebought one, make one yourself which brings a festive vibe along with itself! For example, you can cut out the shape for the bowtie out of felt. You will have to sew the parts together or use a glue gun to attach them. Use Christmas colours for the bowtie, which means lots of green and red! You might also consider giving the bowtie a Christmassy look, by attaching reindeer antlers to it!
3. Building Life Together – Lovely Christmas Gift Ideas for Him
If the man you are trying to find a Christmas gift for has helped you in building up your life or has built memories with you, then check this idea out! Get this man a hammer! But put your own message on the handle of the hammer for him to read! For example, “thank you for helping me build my life.” This will make a heartfelt present for any man and is the perfect sort of gift for a guy who likes tinkering things!
4. Keep Calm and Drink Beer – A Beer Opener
If the man in question loves beer get him something which will suit his interests. Make sure he has a place in his house where he can always open his beers! Make him a beer opener which he can place on one of his walls. We suggest you put a small basket or bucket underneath it creating a cap catcher. This will prevent the caps from falling on the floor. You might also consider writing a message on the beer opener, something along the lines of “keep calm and drink beer.”

This is a great idea if you have run out of ideas or time and need to put something together for him quickly. All you need for this gift is an empty jar. Fill it with mini versions of his favourite drinks! Then simply attach a label to this jar which reads “minibar or open bar.” While this isn’t the most Christmassy gift you can possibly get, it will still brighten up his day!
