10 Cool & Useful Small Gift Ideas For Guys Under £25

Gifts don’t always have to be big to go down well and make a lasting impression.

Finding the ultimate present for someone can often be an unenviable task with us all desperate to land the perfect item, especially when buying for guys.

Men can be notoriously difficult to buy for, with them often claiming that they want nothing or saying that they already have everything.

Being told this could lead to you going overboard to try get something to wow them, but gifts don’t always have to be huge to be a success.

Thoughtful gifts can  show the lucky guy how much effort you’ve put in to come up with that great idea and here at IWOOT UK, we have a number of options that’ll make his day extra special.

Below we’ve created a guide featuring some of the best small gifts for guys that are perfect for a friend, brother, boyfriend, dad, you name it.

Small cheap gifts can make just as big an impact as the pricier ones and our guide features a selection of unique novelty gifts for men along with some pretty useful ones – a real good mix.
