In the spirit of equality, this week, we have curated a gift list for the men. There is something to suit all budgets ranging from £7.00 to £700.

1. The Urban Woodsman

This beautifully styled book is like a love letter to woodwork.

Author Max Bainbridge shares his techniques for carving spoons, bowls and other lovely things out of locally sourced wood.

If you are looking for a gift for an aspiring outdoorsman or carpenter, this is the perfect gift.

3. Beer from Five Points Brewing Company

The Five Points Brewing Company, based in East London, are creating delicious beer without the shipping miles.

They make it easy to put together your own collection of beers with a handy bag to carry it around with. Made from eco-friendly jute, it even has a removable insert to stop your bottles clinking together. What a relief.

Six Beers and Jute Bag. £19.

4. Vé Bicycle From This Because

Not only are these bicycles stunning, and inherently eco-friendly, they have a brilliant added benefit.

For each bike bought, they donate another, locally assembled bike, to school girls in Ghana. 

For the bike nuts, here are the details , the bike is an “aluminium city commuter equipped with alloy fenders, anti-rust chain and a smooth-shifting 3-speed integrated hub from Sram.”

So there you go.
