Giftguide: Gifts For HIM

The Traveller:

Herblester City Guides. The Herblester site is full of colourfully illustrated city guides with their own take on travelling. Showcasing different angles of each city with whimsical title pages for only £4 a guide. (There's even a New York burger map?!) Pick and choose what you want from each city!

Molskine Journals. It's great to document trips as you go along and write down all them recommendations from the lovely locals, map out route plans and note down dates of travel. General musings. Molskine journals are excellent quality and a great personal gift if the receiver is a list maker, like my boyfriend. I even have one on the go myself! They even come in pocket size. Convenient, huh?

GoPro. Now this is a fun one. GoPro's are bloody great. Men love their gadgets, and recording your experiences through video is really awesome! They're so low maintenance and with such a small sizing, you can just clip it on and off you go. If Adam got this gift, lets just say he'd have to keep a tight hold on it... 

Burts Bee's Hand Salve. Day to day travelling and activities can take their thole on hands, and sometimes they need a little something extra. This Burt's Bees is a mix of oils and beeswax that treat hard working hands and is the cure for dry and rough patches, a little extra protection. My boyfriend slathers his hands in this for the winter months. 

The Creative:

Magma Sketchbooks. These sketches make the greatest gifts as they are specifically suited for designers, illustrators, or anyone in the creative or visual industry. There are many different selections available, and I recently bought my boyfriend Design & Art Direction. It's broken down sections of graph, lined, and plain paper, as well as having a section at the back with body measurements, paper folding, printing methods etc. 

Rotring Tikky Graphic Pens. An artist needs their tools and a set of new Rotrings pens is a really personal and well thought gift. The pens can be bought separately, but as the nib's come in different thickness's to suit the needs of the artist, its a great option to buy a set of varied sizes. 

It's Nice That 2014 Annual. is an online magazine, championing all areas of art & design. This years annual showcases the creative minds that have graced their site over this past year! The best of the 130 projects of photography, illustration and everything to hit the design scene.

Pantone Coffee Mug. If you have a professional creative in your life, you'll be familiar with the dreaded deadlines, you might also be familiar with endless Adobe based jargon...Keep the coffee flowing in a Pantone Mug in their favourite gradient of colour!

The Foodie:

Yotam Ottolenghi - Plenty More. A good cookbook is the way to any true foodies heart, and with 150 vegetable based dishes, this is one for the kitchen experimenter! Focusing on cooking methods, the range of recipes are certainly fruitful and plenty.

Gin Making Kit. A Christmas never goes by without a little festive cheer, and the odd tipple or two! With this gin making kit you can craft the taste of your drink to your pallet preference and the box contains everything you need to get started... even the vodka! Yes, that's right. Vodka makes gin?? Go figure.

Chopping Board and Knives Set. I may steal this one for myself! (Don't worry, I'm not a crazy knife lady) A quality set of knives will last years, and may even encourage the least interested in cooking to get chopping! Speaking of which, The colour coded boards are great for knowing what to chop on which so you don't end up cutting veg on the raw meat board. Save the salmonella...

Recipe Book. Another Moleskin entry to the gift guide! All the amazing recipes that the man in your life has whipped up in the kitchen? They should definitely be noted.
