Although this may be considered a huge generalisation, it must be admitted that here in the UK, a huge amount of the male population love to drink and socialise over a good beer! As simplistic as it may be, both beer and beer-related gifts simply provide a great present for men because it’s popular, affordable and easy to choose. If that’s what your male partner, colleague, friend or family member is into, then a traditional English lager or imported international beer is sure to go down a treat. Who could turn their nose up at a personalised bottle opener or a stylishly designed tankard? The options are endless!
The recent popularity in craft beer amongst the younger generations is sparking a new interest in lager and ales, revitalising the age-old tradition of drinking. In the past, beer has always been associated with the older generation drinking in the pub, with not particularly exciting brands such as Carlsberg or Fosters! However, recently, the rise in beer-dedicated bars, pubs and shops has increased, placing an increasing interest and popularity in fun and quirky beer drinking.
Consequently, the combination of stylishly designed packaging and a wide range of tasty beers provides a gift that is both thoughtful, useful and contemporary! With the ability to personalise bottles, openers and glasses, a wonderful keepsake can be gained from a man’s love of drinking. Instead of being slung to the back of the cupboard or remaining unopened, a beer-related gift is certain to be opened, enjoyed and used.
Guinness Beer Soap
This may not be altogether bonkers because although this beer soap is made with deep, dark Guinness Beer it also has skin loving oils of coconut, olive, shea and cocoa butters. Since beer is made primarily with hops, the properties and benefits of this herb become part of the soap. Hops are known to sooth irritated skin and contain skin softening amino acids. It is an excellent treatment for your skin. Takes relaxing with beer to a whole different level doesn't it?
A must have. We don’t recommend opening beer bottles with your teeth (even though it might look really cool), so we suggest you buy yourself a snazzy bottle opener to show off when you’re opening beers in front of friends and family at home, on a picnic or even on holiday. You could even personalise your bottle opener so people know how much of a dedicated beer lover your are!
