After what seems like an endless summer, the much-awaited turn of the season will soon be here. The air will get cooler for some of us, while a white winter will descend upon others. Now might be the perfect time to start shopping for all those year-end gifts that you will eventually need to get down to doing. After all, the year-end festivities have only just begun. If you are lacking in inspiration for gifting ideas for men, you will find some right here.
While a bottle of Scotch as a gift might seem like you’ve taken the easy way out, we think it makes for one of the nicest, and most old-school, gifts to ring in the season with.

Gone are the days of instant coffee, thanks to the easy availability of freshly ground coffee beans. And coffee machines, once hard to find in India, have almost become an indispensable part of every home. But the Boho Coffee Maker blends the best of both worlds. It brews the perfect cup of coffee with just the press of a button, and it does so by capturing the aroma and flavour of gourmet brews using Bonhomia coffee capsules. What makes this a great year-end winter gift for men is that it can also brew a nice cup of tea. How many coffee machines can claim to do this?
