Christmas and the holiday season is upon us and with it comes the need to buy our male loved ones unique gifts (and not just the same old sock set, right?).
However, this year more than ever, it helps if these gifts are affordable.
Whether you’re treating your partner, brother, father or another special man in your life, I’ve got you covered. Here are 15 Christmas gift ideas for him that won’t break the bank.

Firstly, you can’t go wrong with gifting a pair of men’s pyjamas. These ones from M&S* are 100% cotton and regular fit, which means they’re soft and comfortable for a good night’s sleep.
And they’re only £30, which is decent considering that you can wash pure cotton over and over and it will never bobble or lose its shape.
2. Champneys Gym Essentials
