Christmas 2018 Gift Guide For Him

     Happy December! It’s that time of year again, and if you’re like me, you’re not only already behind on Christmas shopping but are also completely stumped on what to get anyone. Never fear, I’m here to help with all of the best thing for any of the men in your life with a festive gift guide for him.

GQ How to Win at Life: The expert guide to excelling at everything you do

This handy book is based on major interviews from GQ over the years, including Richard Branson, Tracey Emin, Jamie Oliver, Tom Daley and even Dynamo.

This book covers pretty much anything you could ask for and makes for a confidence boosting read.

Aftershave

Is this a boring one? A little. Is it something you always forget about, never buy for yourself but need it? Yes.

Plus if you’re smart about it, you can find something pre-wrapped that comes with another bonus. Is this a basic tip? 100%, but this is always a great thing to remember. Boots do a massive amount of gift sets that always come with a variety of freebies.

Tom Ford fragrances are always welcomed, they’re just that bit too nice to buy for yourself. F****** Fabulous is just as the name suggests, and luxurious as f***.

What I got for Christmas

Hello!

I hope any and all of you reading this post had a wonderful festive season, whether you celebrate Christmas or not, I hope you enjoyed the little break you had from work/school/whatever.

Today I am here to share a few gifts I recieved for Christmas. Usually I hate Christmas hauls, as they seem a bit braggy and artificial to me at times. I know a lot of people simply do them because they’re requested or because it kinda is the big hot thing for bloggers/YouTubers this time of year, in fact, I think I’m rather late to the party, and it isn’t an ‘ego’ thing. But whatever, if it is, you do you and I’ll do me.

For me, this is more to document some of the things I was gifted by my brilliant family and friends, I couldn’t ask for better people in my life, except for Daisy Ridley. Daze, (can I call you Daze?), if you’re reading this, hmu.

I have a terrible memory, so this is my visual diary, and also, it’s an opportunity to photo some things on my marble vinyl.

The reason most of these pictures are at an angle is because of the bloody shadows cast by everything. I can’t control natural light, this is my one and only flaw.

LAPD’ 53 is a book about crimes committed in Los Angeles back in 1953, and it’s full of grissly pictures of murder scenes and explanations of how these things were committed. It’s the type of stuff I always find myself diving into late at night on cracked.com and then I’m not able to sleep. So you know what’s better? Having actual physical pictures of mutilated bodies!

Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar

All of my social media has had a huge Star Wars overload lately. I am very sorry if you don’t like/care for Star Wars, and that is all I’ve clogged your timelines with.

This month has been a very huge month for Star Wars, and I celebrated this with a Lego Star Wars advent calendar! I bought this from firebox.com, but I know that you could buy these in store at the Lego store! This cost me £30.

The main reason I’m doing this post full of what I got in it is that I bought a vinyl marble sheet and wanted to try taking pictures on it for the first time, it went…okay. My camera was being temperamental and I’m seeing that a lot of these came out rather dark, and one came out SO BRIGHT.

Oh well, it’s all a learning curve.

Christmas Jumpers!

Happy 3rd of December!!

The glorious month has finally come! It’s time to get festive. Except I don’t feel majorly festive yet, apart from the fact I’ve been eating mince pies almost everyday since November 1st, and that I get to wear a Christmas uniform to work! I might change my bedsheets to my Christmas bedsheets actually, that will get me festive. (Yes, I am the type of person who has Christmas bedsheets)

I should really watch a Christmas film to get into the festive spirit, but with The Force Awakens a mere TWO WEEKS away, I am all wrapped up in Star Wars.

So anyway, to get back on track, I have been getting into the festive spirit with Christmas jumpers! I’m a 50 year old Dad at heart, with a student budget, so Primark this time of year is my heaven. But also hell because it’s about as busy as you’d expect a store to be at Christmas. To my fellow brethren who will be working retail over Christmas, may the odds be ever in our favour.

This Christmas jumper is the newest addition to my collection, can you call 3 a collection?

This is from Primark and cost £15, this is from this year’s range and so should still be available.

See what I meant about being a 50 year old dad? I’m not here for the silly Christmas jumper designs, I want something that is patterned, and makes people think I’m a mature student when I sit down in lecture.

Christmas in London

I wanted to make this a nice blogpost full of nice London-y pictures, but it turns out because I was so focused on filming clips for a video, I only took about 3 pictures.

Instead, here’s the video I made!

And if this ends up being my last post before Christmas- HAVE A GREAT ONE! Stay safe and have fun! x
