Port Curates: Excellent Gifts For Men, Whatever The Occasion 

From birthdays and anniversaries to thank yous and I love yous, discover Port's selection of gifts to satisfy the toughest man to shop for.

Shopping for men often presents a formidable challenge. The struggle lies in finding a gift that strikes the right balance between practicality and thoughtfulness, all while avoiding the clichéd and predictable options. Unfortunately, what you might have found to work for Ma is unlikely to appeal to Pa, not unless he has a particular penchant for Jo Malone candles and flowers. Thankfully, Port has curated a short guide to rescue gift-givers from their predicament with a carefully curated selection of items designed specifically to appeal to all men.

Whether seeking sophisticated accoutrements, resplendent grooming paraphernalia, avant-garde gadgets, or tastefully eclectic homeware, we’ve sourced a slew of especially stylish ideas that think a little outside the gift box. But we’ve been careful not to discount the classics.There are a few gifts that consistently hit the mark for men whatever the occasion, from topping up dad’s supply of scotch, whiskey, and craft beer to replenishing your partners slippers and socks. So while there’s curious contraptions for practical pops and humorous additions for those in the know, we’ve also included extravagant edible hampers (the contents, not the wicker), smart accessories and grooming essentials too.

For birthdays, anniversaries, special events and days that deserve a treat, scroll on to discover Port's edit of the best gifts for men.

A Seriously Great Gin

Inspired by the magical mysteries of the sea, Hendrick's Neptunia is a magical new release Gin that's as refreshing as the sea breeze. It starts with the signature Hendrick's rose and cucumber foundation, adding an additional wave of flavour from an invigorating blend of coastal botanicals and a smooth citrus finish. All he needs to do is add this favourite tonic or soda water and a slice of refreshing cucumber, and cheers to whatever occasion you're celebrating!

Sort Out That Scalp

The greatest gifts are those they might not necessarily think to buy themselves. If you nervously pay more attention to your dad's hairline than he does, do him a favour and gift him this scalp treatment from luxurious Budapest beauty brand, Omorovicza. Once you've explained how you pronounce the name, you can then detail how this cult formula - rated 5 stars by its customers online - is designed to refresh and revive the scalp in-between washes. Menthol and camphor soothe flaky and irritated scalps, whilst salicylic acid gently exfoliates to remove product build-up and unblock hair follicles - ideal for promoting a healthy scalp and therefore healthy hair growth.
