So it’s that time of the year again Halloween is not long over and we’re all starting our Christmas shopping lists!
For me men can often be the hardest to shop for as they seem to “want” nothing and have everything they need… well that’s the case with the men in my life anyway!
The bits I’ve chosen for this gift guide are things I have chosen because they appeal to me ! I have not been influenced or paid by anyone to include them neither are the links affiliated I’m just trying to make things easier if you do fancy them!
I hope you get some ideas that help you
A gift card from Tom Winters Barbers
Whether it’s a classic cut or a traditional shave the gentleman in your life is after he is sure to thank you for his experience at Tom Winters Barber Shop.
Situated on North Main Street in Cork City the vibe and interior of the shop is just as impressive as the talent of Stephen and his team.
My experience here was superb when I took James for a “little Gent” haircut .. short of getting a beer or a shot of whiskey he was treated like one of the lads and Stephen was amazing with him.
Along with providing a fabulous service you can stock up on all the hair and beard accessories you might need at the shop too.
Be sure to call in for vouchers or accessories or book an appointment via booksy on the shops instagram page.
Animal Clothing from E14.99
I have bought quite a bit of animal clothing for both Mr Mmmm and James and I personally love it. It washes extremely well the quality is so nice that I feel it always looks smart yet is casual and cool.
There is a colour to suit any man and a huge range to choose from including long and short sleeved tees and hoodies.
They can be found in a lot of outdoors shops, Debenhams do a small selection and there is a huge collection at ;
Fossil Machine Watch and Leather Cuff Mens Gift Set – E235.
I love Fossil !!! I think the quality is excellent and the brand is luxurious as well as on trend.
This watch and cuff set really stood out to me as I felt it would be just as fitting with casual clothes as it would be with smart clothes and is ideal for the man who isn’t too into formal wear but prefers his style a little more relaxed.
The black and brown colour combo means it will go with just about everything and the style I feel is masculine yet funky.
I spotted this on Littlewoods Ireland online but there is also a store in the Kildare Outlet village.
Beard Card Game – E5.99
Well what’s not to love about a top trumps style game ! This is a fun stocking filler for the man, bearded brother or buddy in your life.
There’s sure to be a little eye candy in here to encourage you to play after the Christmas dinner too !!!!
I spotted these at Littlewoods Ireland online …
Husband Dad Feckin’ Legend – E12
If you are shopping online this Xmas do not do it without visiting this Irish site ! There is so many witty and cool gifts to be got here and it’s always good to buy Irish.
I thought this was a cool mug and there are so many more to choose from along with lots of other quirky gifts.

So there is a an advent calender for everyone these days so why leave out the men!
I came across this calender on oxendales and thought it was good value and that most men would use pretty much every thing in there ! Ideal if you want to give the man in your life a pre Xmas treat !
Pure Silk Paisley Bow Tie and Pocket Square Set – E27
Pocket squares and bow ties have thankfully made a comeback as there is nothing quite like a dapper dressed dude in my opinion.
You can of course get some amazing extravagant sets but they come at a price. I thought this M&S set is great value at e27 and not too out there !
This is an ideal gift for a God father or uncle or maybe a music teacher etc …
It comes in 3 colours and all look amazing against a crisp white shirt.
Ecoffee Cups -E11.99
“No excuse for single use “
Every man, woman and dog these days is big on takeaway coffees ! So here’s your chance to help them help the environment…..
There are loads of cool prints over on the website so go and take a look.

This is a cool gimmick gift for the movie mad man in your life ! And I must admit I’d love this in my own Xmas goodie bag ! Truffle Shuffle have so many cool retro gifts and clothing be sure to take a look.
Mike Ross – Dark Arts – E20
Hopefully Mr Mmmm can resist buying this before Xmas so I’ll be sure of at least one of his gifts being a hit !
Cork born rugby player goes into his private and public life in his autobiography that is sure to be a heartbreaking read in many ways I’f his time on the late late show is anything to go by.
