Buy Handmade | Christmas Gift Guide For Him

It's that time of year again, we're trying to figure out what to get everyone for Christmas!
Here is this year's Ma Bicyclette Christmas gift guide for the men in your life, all chosen from independent retailers who design and make these gifts themselves.

Handmade gifts are not all knitted tea-cosies and slightly wonky ceramics, there are some really impressive items out there, some of which you can see in this blog post! There is nothing more special than a handmade gift, a truly individual item that has been made with love and a real attention to detail.

  1. Hi Steph, jut looking through this list made me think how my hubby wouldn't like any of this - It nothing to do with you and I'm sorry If that sounded rude. He a hard man to buy for - he doesn't like what normal guys like, he buy clothes in TK-MAXX and avoid Topman like the plague. He a big kid so if brought him a toy helicopter or a computer game he as happy as ever. He a geek and think drinking is for other guys, just not him. Anyway it a nice lists and I do like the vinyl amplifier for smartphones, I was thinking of getting something like that.
