Feeling Santa-Mental? Here Are 10 Gifts Your Bros Would Love!

Guys, can I have your attention? Yes, all of you huddled under layers of fuzzy blankets and struggling to warm your freezing feet, this concerns you! Actually, now that I think about it, this concerns every single person on the planet who successfully endured the worst of 2020. Let's all give ourselves a congratulatory pat on the back, shall we? All of us deserve it for putting up with the hardships of this nightmare year, the list of which features a global pandemic, a locus attack, numerous celebrity deaths, random earthquake tremors, 2 Google outages....and I'm crying again. 

 

*Sniffles" it's all in the past, that's the important bit. What matters now the most, is that we all went through it together, and somehow made it to the holiday season with plenty of enthusiasm in store. Now that's what the Christmas spirit is all about anyway! That, and spreading warmth during these chilly end-of-year days.

 

While I might not be at liberty to make assertions on behalf of you, I can certainly state that this wonderful time of the year, has me feeling equal parts grateful and giving. Especially considering the turmoils we braved through to get to this point, my urge to bring delight into the lives of those I love, is even stronger this time around. I also found a bunch of Christmas gifts on Chumbak that'll get the point across, so, I'm all set to play Santa and remind my friends how cherished their presence is. Why not do the same for your gang of guys? After all, they've played a key role in making sure you stay sane through it all. In fact, go ahead and borrow some ideas from this X-Mas list! 

 

1. Things Indians Say Epic Notebook

 

Price 

INR 277

 

We're all guilty of uttering the words scribbled on this notebook cover, at some point or another. It could be a happy "Soo nice, no?" or a perturbed "Mad or wat?" but these statements echo some classic Indian sentiments, that only our fellow countrymen can resonate with. So, as a Christmas token of love and affection, why not send across this bright, nostalgic notebook to your close friend? You can tick each phrase off, laugh hysterically, and bond over memories of saying them out loud. Also, the notebook will help them plan their next year better, which is all we can ask for at this point!

2. Owl Be There For You Mug

 

Price 

INR 595

 

Whether it's by confiscating his phone when he reaches for that 5th shot of Vodka, or by telling his mom that he's right next to you when you have no idea where he is, you know deep down that you'll always be there when your best friend needs you. But how about reminding him every single morning? You can achieve that with this quirky coffee mug featuring an owl on alert mode! And if your friend is as much of an insomniac as my best guy is, this Christmas gift is the perfect knick-knack to make him smile with every day.

3. Wine Cork & Bottle Opener Set 

 

Price 

INR 690

 

I'll be honest, this Christmas gift idea comes from a place of personal interest. It's because I'm awfully tired of watching my guy friends try to open beer bottles with their teeth, every time we gather together. Like, bottle openers exist for a reason, you know? You don't need to chip your enamel every time you want to open a pint! So, play the most helpful Santa ever, and drop-ship this wine cork and bottle opener set to your pal's house as a Christmas gift. The way I see it, it's a win-win for everybody, including your friend's dentist!

Have you ever suspected that your foodie friend is actually lugging two stomachs around for extra storage? Because really, how can 1 human being eat SO much?!

6. Running On Caffeine Pop Socket Grip 

 

Price 

INR 795 

 

There's a lesson I learnt early in life while staring at my fallen phone inside a toilet bowl. If there exists a tech accessory that will reduce the chances of accidents, it's worth investing in. So just imagine if your friend woke up on Christmas morning, to discover that someone else cared enough to get it for him! The next time he finds his phone getting just a bit too slippery for comfort, your super handy gift will come to his rescue.
