Cork Wrap Journal – £15
Lots of you may already own one of Sue’s fabulous books and I think this is such a gorgeous gift for the hard to buy for guys! Vegan, eco-friendly, handstitched, the list goes on. And that goes without saying for its uses too… work meetings, keeping track of all the varieties of whiskey he has drunk or just keeping track of life. Sue makes journals in 24, yes 24 stunning different colours so you can be sure to find one that suits any colour request!

Darth Vader Signed A4 Print – £8.50
Know a keen Star Wars fan? Then this Darth Vader print is for them. Darth in his iconic helmet would look fabulous in any frame (I tried this in white and it looked awesome!) and would be a welcome addition for any film fan, hung on the wall or propped on a shelf. Can you believe it’s been hand drawn too – absolutely incredible!

Jack Daniels Bottle Light – £20
Ever wondered what happens to those empty gin or whiskey bottles? Well turn off the lights and switch this on. How fabulous and unique is this?! Bottle Bin upcycles glass bottles, finishing them off with little lights to make them stand out. I’m so impressed with the light they give off and they look absolutely amazing in any room of the house! It’s also so clever that the label and cap are kept intact to create a really high quality finish too!

Solid Wood Bottle Opener – £7
I love finding something that not only does what it says on the tin, but also more. This brilliant handmade bottle opener is a sly fox as it not only opens the essentials in life, it also can be used as a phone stand and then is magnetised for easy storage on your fridge. For an extra few pounds you can also have it personalised to create that added personal touch!
Men Behaving Bathly Gift Set – £12
Toiletries are always a staple present for men, but this is slightly different. I love how there are so many different treats here from Himalayan bath salts to a foot soak, all with ‘manly’ scents. It’s all made fresh to order and everything is 100000% natural too, so no nasty chemicals that could harm the environment. It comes in a lovely gift box too and would create an ideal pamper night for any guy!
Shop: Little Shop of Lathers
Personalised Multi-Tool and Key Holder – £10
Every guy needs one of these and to be honest, you can never have too many anyway. This multi tool has a screwdriver, wrench and carabiner clip so it’s so handy to have on the go, and keys can be attached straight away. Talk about convenience! It also comes in a jute bag and can be personalised however you like to give it a more personal touch.

Coffee Gift Pack – £9.95
Silver Oak Coffee are the best coffee roasters around Ely, so very local to me! Any coffee lover who loves ‘proper coffee’ really needs to be trying this. You get a selection of different beans from around the world and you can even opt for the beans to be ground too. I was SO impressed that the roasted date on the bag was so recent and it’s brilliant to see that they support small farmers all over the world where traditional growing methods take place. A classic gift for the coffee lover.
