The Mighty Mug Go, from £14.91

Although it's pitched as a travel mug, this is an absolute office staple. The creators claim it is impossible to knock over, due to some clever technology in the base – so those catastrophic spills across his laptop keyboard could be a thing of the past. One Mumsnetter claims it even doubles as a fun game, trying to knock it over. Perfect for hot and cold drinks, he'll soon wonder how he lived without it.

Stemless wine glasses, £26.66 (were £34)

They're much harder to break, they pack away more conveniently and they fit oh-so-well in any wine-lover's hands. They're also “all the rage right now,” according to one glassware convert, adding “if wine is their thing.” (Ahem.) Perfect for christening on Christmas Eve, if you ask us.

Cards Against Humanity (UK Edition), £25

A word of warning: Cards Against Humanity is definitely one of the most offensive games you'll ever play. But, as long as you're not too easily shocked, it's also one of the funniest. Just make sure you hide it well from your kids, (and any pearl-clutching relatives, naturally).

31DOVER Bakewell Gin, £31.95

31DOVER Bakewell Gin, £31.95

Brewed in a small, family-run distillery in the Peak District, this is cherry and almond-infused gin tastes just like a Bakewell tart. The sizeable bottle could last him well beyond the festive period, but it would be selfish of him not to share, right? We recommend using it to knock up some festive cocktails.
