Gifts for Him - Gift Guide
Tickets to the footy, a nice steak dinner and a Sky Plus subscription all make nice gifts, true, but they're not unusual and they're not always sustainable. If you're trying to find an unusual gift for your bloke that doesn't rev, plugin or require batteries, then we can help.
If we've learned anything from the last season of Celebrity MasterChef, Phil Vickery is proof that even tough guys like fruit. In fact, some tough guys even like to cook with fruit while others enjoying trying their hand at growing their own fruit trees!
Thats where we come in. Is your guy an aspiring chef or a sophisticated foodie? If so, hell appreciate the beauty of good quality ingredients and will most likely be concerned with where his ingredients come from. By giving him a fruit tree gift for that special occasion this year, you can flaunt your thoughtful side as well as your eco-friendly side. Send your budding cook to the kitchen with fruits from his very own orange tree or lime tree, and if he's really up for a challenge, why not consider one of our fig trees?
Of course, not all guys like cooking, but we think you'd be hard-pressed to find a British man who doesn't have a fond memory or two from childhood of playing with conkers. Our Horse Chestnut tree is the perfect way to rekindle that memory, plus, it is easy to grow and will provide hours of male bonding time between dad and son bring on the conker war!
The indulgence of pies and pints are traditional pastimes of most British men, and some men can be very picky about their idea of a perfect pint. If your guy is a self-proclaimed guzzler, consider a tree gift that he could use to produce his own, home-grown tipple. Our James Grieve apple tree produces fruit that is excellent for cider making as does our dwarf pear tree. We also have grape vine gifts for the wine enthusiast who fancies trying his hand at making white wine.
