What to Buy a Man Who Has Everything: Gifts in the UK
Struggling to find a great gift idea for your dad, brother, husband, or maybe even your boyfriend this year? I mean, what gifts do you buy for a man who has everything within the UK?!
Men can be the hardest to buy a present for, which makes the whole gift buying process a stressful task.
We always struggled and then found ourselves resorting back to the same ideas time and time again.
And, that’s not fun for them or us. Handing over dull and unadventurous gifts for them to unwrap time and time again. Sound familiar?
Something needs to change.
But, they don’t have to be hard to buy for. With our tried and tested method, we thought we would share our perfect gift ideas – especially for difficult men!
This is the ultimate guide on how to buy gifts for the man who has everything, within the UK.
So, let’s get to it.
Buying Gifts for the Man Who Has Everything (UK)
Let’s face it. People who have everything, don’t just want naff gifts, and there needs to be some thought behind the present to get it right.
To make the cut and be a great gift, we have to implement some rules before they make the cut to make this as simple as possible.
So, for a guy who doesn’t want anything, each item had to pass one of the following three clear rules:
- Practical – the present will be used and not just collect dust
- Edible – a delicious foodie gift they can enjoy
- An Activity – something related to a hobby or what they enjoy doing
Following these three rules is our tried and tested method that always works.
It sounds obvious but the only exception is to use your knowledge on what they like and don’t like. For example, of course, don’t go buying chocolate if they despise of the stuff.
Now, let’s find out which gifts passed the test.

A vegetable chopper is such a practical gift and completely underrated in our opinion.
They’re such a fantastic gadget for when you’re feeling lazy and have to chop a lot of veg for soup, or any kind of veggie-based meal. This tool is also great for salads and salsa.

Activity Gift Ideas
Gifts involving an activity or experience take a little more thought, as they involve their personal hobbies and interests.
But, that doesn’t mean they’re not the perfect gift idea.
Thought and effort makes for a wonderful gift, so with some research and thinking you can plan an amazing activity for them.
Activity and Experience Ideas
- Visit to a museum or national trust property
- Weekend/trip away to their favourite place
- Visit a beautiful garden
- Theatre tickets
- Theme park
- Wine tasting
- Train journey
- Experience driving a sports car
- Home cooked three course meal with menu
- Afternoon tea
- Bungee jumping
- Boat ride
- Go to the beach
- Tickets to a comedy show
- Escape rooms
- Playing golf
- Safari park
- Winter sports at the Snowdome
- Trip to London or a city
- Cheese tasting
- Dinner at amazing restaurant
- Football ticket or season ticket
- Bike ride with route planned
Use this list and think about what they love (not what you’d love to do!) for some inspiration to come up with the perfect gift experience.
Once you’ve found an experience, book the date, if you can, so they have something to look forward to. We find there’s less chance of them using their activity if it’s not set in stone. But of course, this is not always possible.
Find a way of presenting the activity as a present e.g. print as a ticket or invitation and place it in their card, or pop it into a cardboard box for them to open.
Then sit back and watch their face light up as you feel smug knowing you’ve absolutely mastered your gift this year!
