Buying for men is the most tedious job, I always struggle to buy for my dad, partner and brothers. I find they either have everything they want or it will cost me my 3 months of my wages! Finding something they love, will use and is a reasonable price seems to get harder every year, I have found items that tick all three of these boxes on my Christmas Gift Guide For Him.
Silver Back Gin (rrp £35)
Alcohol is always a great present and gin is one of the most (if not the most) popular spirits at the moment. The Mountain Strength gin is smooth with tones of citrus and spice, pair it perfectly with a a slither of orange peel for the perfect G+T. When you buy this bottle, you will also be supporting The Gorilla Organization as Gorilla Spirits donate £1 from every bottle they sell to the organization that work with communities in Rwanda, Uganda and DR Congo regarding gorilla conservation.

If gin is not their tipple then fear not, the family-style business also make Vodka, Coffee Liqueur and Rum.
