Christmas Gifts for Men
Time is ticking by and Christmas is getting ever closer. This week we bring you some great Christmas gift ideas for all the family. Today we start with the men in the household.
According to research carried out by the Nationwide Building Society, British shoppers on average buy 14 individual gifts at Christmas. In 2016, the UK spent £77.56 billion, totalling £645 per person.
Black Friday, which this year occurs in a few days’ time on 24th November, is the biggest Christmas shopping day of the year. This year in the UK, we are expected to spend over £10 billion in Black Friday deals which seem to get earlier and longer with every year.
Christmas Gift Ideas for Men

Change Checker Collector’s Album
If you are a regular reader of the Post Office Shop Blog you will notice that we often write about collectible coins. This year saw the introduction of the new twelve-sided pound coin. This has led to Valuable Round Pounds becoming collector’s items.
This Change Checker Collectors Album is a great gift for a coin collector or for someone wanting to take up the so called “Hobby of the Kings”. It comes complete with presentation pages and identification cards to hold the complete series of £2, £1 and 50p coins.

Add a touch of fun to dad’s brew with the Despicable Me Have a Nice Day Mug featuring a cheeky Minion and the text “Have a Nice Day”. For that extra special finishing touch, buy the Deep Tea Fisherman Tea Bag Holder too. The little blue fisherman fixes to the side of your mug with suction cups and holds your tea bag into your mug so you can always enjoy the perfect strength brew.
