Keystone Aspire

 

Let’s start with what he likes to do:

1. He loves to get on his bike

Three options for you: some gorgeous cycle wear, the latest safety helmet that lights up and a camera so he can record all his sporting activities:

2. He loves technology

The Amazon Echo – God knows what this is, but my husband is lusting after one! He says that you “just tell it what to do and it does it” so I am sticking to that description. If you need more information, read this:

Alternatively, if he likes gaming and you want to spend a bit more, he might appreciate this virtual reality headset:

3. He likes cricket, shooting and/or driving fast cars

Gorgeous gifts that range in prices from under 50 quid to over hundreds of thousands of pounds! Most importantly, no matter how much you spend on him, it will come in such luxurious box that he will feel utterly spoilt.

4. He is forgetful, bless him

Yes, this is a watch-holder for his nightstand…cute, chic and very useful!

5. He loves to travel

What could be better than whale watching under the northern lights? Just get the weekend sitter booked and off you go!

6. He is a great dad and can be sentimental!

Yes you might have to put a little bit of work into these but they will be personal, meaningful and probably bring a tear to his eye…

7. He is always moaning about his sore back

Sounds like he needs a Russian sauna experience where he will get yummy, smelly things massaged into his skin and regularly whacked with a bunch of oak leaves. Totally luxurious and nothing dodgy about it, promise!

8. He fancies himself as a bit of a cook….and likes travelling

Located in a 40 hectare organic farm in Shanagarry, County Cork, the world famous Ballymaloe Cookery School offers over 60 courses ranging from one day, all the way to five day residential practical courses and 12 week intensive certificate courses. See their full range of gift vouchers here:

9. He has a digital camera but doesn’t really know how to use it

Nuff said.

10. He loves watching movies and drinking Gin

London’s oldest cinema, The Electric Cinema in Notting Hill offers a chilled-out vibe combined with sofas and snacks served at your seat. Lush leather armchairs, beds on the front row, comfy footstools, wine coolers and small tables storing snacks and drinks make this small, independent cinema one of the most appealing around. Tube: Ladbroke Grove Station. See what’s on here: https://electriccinema.co.uk/ and if he also happens to be a Gin lover, maybe you could both do a Gin taster class before you hit the town at The Portobello Star: https://www.theginstitute.com/

11. He is a star-gazer

What could possibly be more interesting or more romantic that a day out and evening in Greenwich? http://www.rmg.co.uk/see-do/exhibitions-events/evening-stars

12. He likes gardening and is particular about his tools….

Call Pattersons Spade Mill in Northern Ireland who will make a bespoke spade for him, complete with personal message engraving, for a mere £125. Bargain I say! Phone: 028 9443 361

13. He is interested in learning something new

How’s about an online course in Buddhism with Harvard? Anyone?  https://www.edx.org/course/buddhism-through-its-scriptures-harvardx-hds3221-3

14. He reckons he could be a radio presenter

Book him onto a one day workshop with seasoned presenter, Denise Parsons who will take your man through the steps that he needs to become one of the greats. This adventure is based in the studios of Radio Verulam 92.6FM in central St Albans, Hertfordshire. It costs £99 pp and you can book it by emailing: denise.parsons@radioverulam.com
