Gentlemen, Christmas shopping doesn’t have to be an ordeal. Whether it is picking out an outfit for the holiday season or grabbing gifts for mates, you can actually do all your shopping right from the comfort of your living room couch. And ladies, if you are gift hunting for that special man in your life, there is an awesome selection of men’s gift ideas at sites like Malebox, Yellow Octopus and ThinkGeek. I’ve picked out some of the best deals; with a little something for everyone, from the fashionable metrosexuals to the guys who still love their comic books.
Malebox- Sleek, Sexy and Smouldering
Malebox is a gift site that offers accessories, grooming items, toys and of course gadgets. I think their stand-out items are their accessories; like watches, belts, money clips and chic monogrammed hankies. It’s the perfect shop for the fashion forward man who takes pride in his appearance and likes to stand out from the crowd.
Cufflinks are a great statement piece and Malebox currently has a sale on a selection of cufflinks. These are going at almost 70% off the usual price and are just $15 a pair ($21.95 inclusive of shipping). There are some pretty unique pieces including this pair of gear stick cufflinks.
You can even get personalised cufflinks with the name of the person embossed onto the cufflink. Personalised cufflinks are not on sale but at $55.95 shipped, they make a one of a kind gift. The site offers free shipping on purchases of over $100.There are also some other interesting products worth checking out like their sleek men’s accessory boxes with removable compartments for belts, cufflinks and watches. If you are a first timer to Malebox, you can get 10% off your first purchase by signing up to their mailing list.
Take A Walk On The Wild Side With Yellow Octopus
Yellow Octopus is one of those sites that is full of surprises, with every page filled with something different and totally off the charts. The site is not just for the boys; it’s actually filled with tons of great novelty gift ideas for wacky men, women and kids alike. You can even buy a water powered jet pack for a cool $99,800. (I kid you not!)
For those of you that don’t have a hundred grand to blow on one absolutely incredible gift, there are a number of other affordable options. I looked over the items that were on sale and I found this Duo Pinball Controller for iPad going at $40.95 shipped. Great for gamers and pretty much anyone who grew up hanging around gaming arcades in the 80’s. Once connected to an iPad, this controller allows you to unlock five tables for free on the popular Pinball HD Collection app (available at the App Store).
Yellow Octopus is also a great site for picking up gifts for guys from the office, there are some inexpensive yet fun options to choose from like a pair of skeleton print socks for $9.40 or this Mr Tea Strainer & Infuser for guys who enjoy a hot cup of tea in the office. As with the previous site, shipping is free for orders of over $100.
The name pretty much gives it away… ThinkGeek. As you might expect, the site is loaded with gifts that will send geeks, techies and comic book fans straight to heaven. What’s great about shopping at ThinkGeek is that they’ve also got gifts for women and kids and pop culture junkies, with a range of gift items dedicated to popular television shows like Dr Who and Star Trek. This Star Wars Storm Trooper bathrobe is on sale at $51.63 shipped and it’s the perfect gift for any Star Wars fan. There are also printed t-shirts with prices starting at $9.99 excluding shipping. The site is currently running a Black Friday promotion which entitles you to 20% off orders over $40, you can pick up the ThinkGeek promo code from the vouchers page but you need you make your purchases soon as the deal expires on 30th November.
Get Ready, Get Set…SHOP!
Malebox, Yellow Octopus and ThinkGeek offer a ton of gift options from classic fashion staples to novelty items and pop culture knick knacks. They pretty much have gifts for every type of man and with the holidays just weeks away you better get down to ordering ASAP!
