Budget Friendly Gifts for Him

For £15 a recycled sailcloth card holder from Flowfold makes a fun, useful gift that will last a lifetime. This nifty minimalist wallet is upcycled from some of the toughest performance fabrics in the world.

This White Chrome Safety Razor comes with a lifetime guarantee. For only £15, gift a luxurious, sustainable shaving experience for life.

And, if he’s already got a safety razor, a blade refill pack for £8 could be a great stocking filler.

If he’s into whiskey, these stunning, tempered glass and shatter-resistant whiskey tumblers are a beautiful and practical gift for under £20.  

And, this set of 6 coloured glass tumblers are a bright, fun version of the iconic Picardie tumbler design.

Everyone loves socks, right? These soft and sturdy merino wool socks come with an amazing lifetime guarantee - they’ll be the last he’ll ever need.  

For someone with design flair, a pair of LED filament lightbulbs from Plumen are a stylish, earth-friendly and longer lasting version of their energy sapping cousins.
