A Christmas gift list for men 2017 – 10 fabulous ideas
I do not always find the men in my life easy to buy for. Whether that be my OH, great uncle, teenage son or father in law I always feel I err on the side of caution and my gifts are not really very exciting or very stylish.
This year I have put some effort into sourcing the most wonderful list of 10 great gifts for men who like a little style or substance in their life. I am delighted with this list and I hope it will prove inspiring to you too.
Lumie desk lamp
Lumie lamps look lovely as they shine a gorgeous amount of light into your room but their actual purpose goes far deeper. The Lumie desk lamp (£120) is really affective at treating the symptoms of seasonal affective disorder with summer levels of bright light. They lift mood, boost concentration and restore natural energy, useful for work productivity, sports training, health, and many other conditions. I personally used a SAD light last winter and it definitely approved my mood and energy levels. The desk lamp is adjustable, attractive AND it has touch control, a diffuser and a bendable arm so you really can use it to suit your needs. This is brilliant for task lighting too or vlogging!
This gift will just keep on giving right through to Spring and again from the following Autumn. It can make such a difference to people and really is a fabulous gift idea.
