Christmas presents for men
Presents! Great to give, great to receive − not so great to buy.  As a firm believer in the art of avoiding the stress of Christmas shopping, this Select Shopping on Christmas presents for men – whether it’s your boyfriend, brother, dad or granddad  –  is also an endeavour to minimise the amount of time spent on actual shopping whilst finding presents they will like, and you may choose to enjoy together in the true spirit of Christmas.

 

Boyfriend
A good way to start the morning together is good coffee – and an Aeropress makes excellent coffee and doesn’t take up too much room in the kitchen. It costs about 285 kroner. And while it might be considered a slightly boring present, it will definitely be appreciated − a subscription to online platform Netflix only costs 79 kroner a month.

Brother
They’re notoriously difficult to find something for, aren’t they? But if he likes films, food and books in general, why not consider a membership at Cinemateket as a good all-in-one kind of present? You get a chance to do something together, since one of the perks of this membership includes reductions for guests. It also gives you a 10 percent reduction in the restaurant SULT and discounts in the book shop. A membership is 275 kroner or 145 kroner if he is still a student.

Dad
Another difficult customer! Not quite old enough to have everything yet, he’s old enough to have his own opinion about what he wants. And high on that list is probably spending time with you! So give him something you can do something together – for example, tickets to the opera or a concert. The well-reviewed opera Carmen is back at the Royal Theatre between January and March and costs between 125 and 895 kroner per ticket.

Granddad
Grandparents have normally accumulated so much stuff that they really are in little need of anything. So it’s justifiable going for the ‘membership’ kind of present for Granddad as well. This could be the Louisiana Club – which for the individual membership is 475kr, while the 1+1 guest version is 595 kroner. The added bonus of this type of present is that you can very easily be invited to tag along – so you can finally make your way to the exhibitions you always plan to go to, but never quite manage.
