Resene Post Page Top

Let's be friends!

The books we're reading, the vibrators we're using, the rants we're having and more in our weekly EDM.

Gifts for him: In this gift guide for the man in your life, we’ve got suggestions for every type of bloke – from sport, self-care, hobbies and everything in between, there’s something for everyone! Here’s our best picks for gifts for him:

One Day Knife Making Course

Look, I [Alice] really don’t get it and – I’m sorry Artisan School of Lost Arts, but this does not sound like my idea day out – BUT, I concede that this would be the perfect gift for many of the men I know. Essentially, it’s a workshop where you get to make your own very cool knife to take home. Workshops start at 8:00am in Clevedon and go all day through till 5:30pm.

The day will take your loved one from designing their knife, through to grinding the blade, heat treatment, gluing/profiling their handle, polishing and sharpening the blade ready for use. Morning tea, a farmhouse style lunch and afternoon tea are all provided and they welcome everyone from beginners to those who know their way around tools well.

The Artisan School of Lost Arts: One Day Knife Making Course, $425

Fitbit Inspire 3

Has the man in your life been through the wringer in 2022? Or maybe he’s got some health/fitness goals/resolutions in mind for the new year ahead? If so, this could be just the ticket. Fitbit Inspire 3 is a super light-weight, easy to wear health & fitness tracker that can help your dude achieve his goals, or just become a bit more mindful and aware of his own health and wellbeing. It does everything from track your heart rate, your blood oxygen level and variations in skin temperature, through to tracking your sleep and sending reminders for mindfulness sessions.

Fitbit Inspire 3, $169.99

Lego – Home Alone

If your partner has ever bought a Lego set under the guise that it’s for the kids, and then spent the afternoon creating it themselves – it’s time to embrace the fact that Lego isn’t just for youngsters and get them a project they will love! Lego now has an extensive range for adults, but this Home Alone project is our favourite.

With just shy of of 4,000 pieces (Lego’s largest to date), it’s recommended for those 18+ (patience is definitely required). But this one is seriously cool – it has INSANE detail, and includes everything you need to recreate SO many scenes from the movie.There is everything you need to stage Kevin’s fake Christmas party, a basement furnace with a LEGO light brick, iron-drop function, swinging paint cans, collapsible shelves, zip line from the attic to the tree house and more. Each level of the house is detachable, and the walls and roof open up for easy access.

Lego Home Alone, $449.99

We’re Not Really Strangers Card Game

Ah, the age old struggle of getting men to open up – THIS bad boy will do the job nicely. We’re Not Really Strangers is a party card game with three levels that asks its players (between two and six) questions that range from the everyday through to the deeeep, such as ‘what are you afraid of’, ‘what do you think is my best quality’ and ‘how are you, really?’.

We’re Not Really Strangers, $42

GoPro Hero 11 Mini

Perfect for golf, diving, fishing, cooking and everything in between, once you have a GoPro, you’ll be surprised at how often it gets used! This one is particularly great if you have kids, or if you’re trying to get away from your screens. Point and shoot without getting pulled out of the moment (or give it to your kids to see life through their eyes!)

GoPro Hero 11 Black Mini, $729.99

Church Road 1 Syrah

When in doubt, a nice bottle of red never goes amiss! This Syrah from famed winemakers Church Road is an excellent choice – single vineyard, handmade and SO delectable now, but if your gift recipient can wait, a few years in the cellar will do wonders!

Church Road 1 Syrah, $120

Intex Kayak Challenger K2

When it comes to gifts for him (at least, the hims that love the great outdoors) then you can’t go past a kayak for a bit of on the water action. It’s lightweight, compact and deflates in minutes – great for shoving in the car and taking wherever you’re going.

Intex Kayak Challenger K2, $169.99

Whisky Stones

You won’t know how handy these little stones are until they’re tucked safely away in your (their) freezer. They’re great for a whisky of course (and they don’t dilute your beverage) but they’re also lovely for your rosé or in a sparkling water during the hot summer months.

Whisky Chillers, $29.99
