Need ideas for an early Christmas gift for my hairdresser please

I've been going to my hairdresser for years and we have built up a bit of a friendship, though we're not friends IYSWIM. I now live at the other end of the country but still go back to him twice a year to get my hair cut.

Next month he's coming into work on a day off as I'm in the area and I can't change it to another day. I don't tip him because it would embarass him so I want to give him an actual present to say thanks and I can pretend it's an early Christmas present. But I can't think of anything inspiring.

He's early 30s, gay and in a long-term relationship. I don't really want to get wine, chocolates or toiletries but equally I don't want it to look like I've put an enormous amount of thought into it or make it too personal as that would be creepy.

Any ideas please? I'd be looking at spending around a tenner. Thanks.

Do you know anything about what he likes to do in his free time? Does he have a dog? id he a clubby type person, into cars, gadgets, travel or a country walk type person etc.?

I'm sure not all gay hairdressers are into the same type of stuff grin

What about:
A nice Christmas Candle?
Some kind of Coffee Table book?
A kitcheny type gadget e.g bottle opener
Fancy key ring for the shop keys
A funny mug filled with sweeties

Thanks for the suggestions.

He goes on city breaks abroad but says his partner organises those. He also likes holidays in the Peak District. Not sure if he walks while he's there though. The salon website says he likes dogs so maybe he does.

What do you chat about? Any ideas at all about his interests?

Upmarket olive oil?

What about a voucher for a nice deli local to him that he could spend on nice goodies for Christmas?

Thanks for everyone's help. I'm thinking of getting him some Scorpian vodka but still looking for other ideas in case I find something better.
