James’ Birthday Gift Ideas

My husband, James turns the big 30 in a few weeks! So I’ve started thinking about gifts that I could buy for him. He’s actually quite fussy and hard to buy for, even after 10 years together I still struggle for ideas! I tend to just play it safe.

We are hoping we’ll be able to get away for a weekend just the two of us, which will take up most of our budget so I can’t go overboard with presents. Here are a few ideas I have…


Tom Ford Men – I bought him this for Christmas and he really liked it. It was only a small 50ml bottle though so it’s running low now and needs replacing. £52.95 Amazon.

Thrasher hoody – He lives in hoodies and he’s been eyeing this one up. It’s from Librance which is a really cool action sports store. £49.95 Librance (they even price match if you find it cheaper somewhere else).

Pretty Green wallet – James loves Pretty Green and could do with a new wallet so this one would be perfect. £45.00 Pretty Green.

Star Wars iPhone case – He’s just got a new phone this week , an iPhone 6. So he needs a new case and loves Star Wars, so this is perfect. £10 ASOS.

Bulleit bourbon whiskey – James is really into bourbon whiskey and after doing a little bit of research I bought him the Woodford Reserve bourbon for Christmas. It had been a toss-up between that and this one so I thought I’d go for this one this time. £24.95 Amazon.

Pretty Green t-shirt – As I mentioned earlier, James loves the brand Pretty Green and has a few of these polo t-shirts already. I like the pattern on this one. £55.00 Pretty Green.

Thanks for reading.

    Hi! Thanks for following my blog! I am very excited to be following yours too! I love the Bulleit Bourbon Whiskey idea! My husband collects whiskey and loves to bring it out when we have friends over for dinner. One birthday a few years ago I gave him a basket with various whiskey related gifts – a bottle of his favorite whiskey (Ardbeg Uigeadail), a whiskey map that shows various places where whiskey is produced all over Europe (whiskey produced in Brittany, France? Who knew!) and whiskey glasses he had had his eye on for a while. He loved it and still talks about it! 🙂 Good luck!
