- The 4-Hour Work Week by Timothy Ferriss
Ryan absolutely loves this book. He says that it is really great at teaching you skills to maximise your time, ensure work-life balance and enable you to grow in your career simultaneously. If you know someone who has a jam-packed schedule and is very ambitious in all aspects of life, this is the perfect gift for that individual. This book has proven to be so useful to Ryan so that’s why I knew that I definitely needed to include it in this list.
- Messenger Bag (less expensive version here)
This is a gift that will be used so often. Whether for a student or for someone in an office job that takes his laptop with him to and from the office, this bag will see so much use. Rather than being an average laptop bag, this messenger bag has character and is right on trend which is why I love it.
- Ray-Ban Wayfarer
What guy doesn’t need a great pair of sunnies? This is the perfect pair for any man. I love that these are tortoise-shell with a matte finish which is just gorgeous.
- GoPro Hero 5 Black
If you know an adrenaline junkie, you probably couldn’t find a more perfect gift than the GoPro Hero 5 Black. Whether they love to go diving, skiing, skydiving, mountain biking, surfing or anything in between, they will absolutely love this gift. The smile on the face of the person you wrap this up for will probably last until next Christmas.
- Daniel Wellington watch
To me, a timepiece is one of the loveliest gifts to give. This Daniel Wellington watch is budget-friendly for a leather strap watch and it has a really classy watch face too. I love the navy blue hands and the roman numerals too.
- John Varvatos Artisan EDP
This fragrance is a really manly fragrance. It smells so sexy! If you have a man in your life that you would describe as the quintessential manly-man, this fragrance is definitely perfect for him. The packaging is also really lovely. It’s as though it is designed to look like a military water bottle for the middle of the desert which further emphasizes the manliness of this gorgeous fragrance.
