Sennheiser HD 25-1 II Headphones
Music is nothing without the right speakers and these headphones are the best of the best. Forget flashy headsets that are style over substance like Beats and Skullcandy, these Sennheisers are the cans of choice for DJs and music producers.

Cards Against Humanity
Cards Against Humanity is a bit of a risqué choice, but he’ll laugh for hours with this at a lads night in when the beer is flowing. It’s a simple card game but unashamedly brash – the dealer draws a card with a touchy subject written on it then each of the players take turns in matching it with the most politically incorrect card in their hand with hilarious results. Cards Against Humanity has been a big hit in the states for a while now and they’ve finally released a UK version through Amazon, so jump in and wait for him to tell you how much his stomach muscles hurt the next day from laughing so hard. Just don’t play it with your parents!

Steve Jobs Exclusive Biography
This book is a fantastic read and a great stocking filler for any guy who fancies himself as a bit of a techie. The original book came out in 2011 but a new paperback edition came out this autumn with an updated chapter at the end. Most of us have owned an Apple product of some variety, whether it be an iPod, Macbook, iPhone or iPad and the story of how all these products came to be is a fascinating ride.

Imperial Barber Products Shave Bundle
I’ve noticed in last year that many guys are starting to move away from techie shaving gadgets and are taking an interest in the old ritualistic style of wet shaving, using the kinds of products that their grandfather might have back in the day. With that in mind I’ve picked out this fantastic shave bundle from Imperial. It contains a pre-shave oil, a soap and bergamot aftershave, all wrapped up in a neat drawstring stash bag. A great gift for any guy who’s not afraid to try something a bit different!
