Who’s the hardest person to find a Christmas gift for in your family? For many it tends to be a male, father figure – a dad, grandad, husband or partner.
Luckily, at Kathmandu we’re well prepared for this yearly dilemma. We’ve taken the time to sort out a selection of fantastic Kiwi Christmas gift suggestions for your favourite bloke.
Put the earth first with this hoodie
If you’re looking for something that not only looks good on your chosen guy but also leaves little trace on the planet, our Earth Hooded Pullover is an inspired choice.
Each Earth Hoodie is literally a unique garment – no two are exactly alike. Plus you’ll be able to talk up some of its environmentally friendly features over Xmas dinner, such as:
- Being dyed with fully traceable agricultural waste made up of nutshells, leaves and vegetables
- Containing trims created from recycled plastic bottles
- Supporting more responsibly grown cotton
A polished polo for your man
If your summer break is forecast to be too hot for a hoodie, check out the smart Batu Polo Shirt. Your partner or husband won’t be able to turn down a slick, honest polo – it’s sure to be worn on Christmas Day!
This regular fitting polo stands out as a shirt that:
- Can be worn buttoned or unfastened
- Is supporting more responsibly grown cotton
- Features a ribbed collar and elongated back
Backyard cricket with mates, beach time with the kids, or relaxing with a book and a beer – whatever his favourite summer holiday trait is, he’ll be dressed in the Batu.
Sun, sea, surf – and sandals
Why stop with just the polo when our Ingott Travel Sandals will match up with it well this Christmas season. Ideal for summer travel adventures, these sandals will be the sturdy, cool footwear your dad or partner need.
Enjoying Xmas festivities just aren’t quite the same if you’re wearing shoes and socks – the humble sandal has a time and a place. Consider these great features the Ingott offers:
- Durable soles with maximum traction
- Waterproof and stain resistant leather
- Optimum fit and support with hook-and-loop closures
A chair for resting and reclining
When it comes time to relax after a day of summer activities, a comfortable outdoor chair that you can take to the park, beach or just the backyard is a must. Help your dad or grandad relax this Christmas with our foldable Retreat Recliner Chair.
Padded for comfort and extra warmth when the evening cools down, the Retreat will give your guy:
- A choice of three reclining positions
- An insulated cooler pocket for ice and his favourite tipple
- A cup holder and magazine pocket
You may even want to keep one near the chimney on Xmas Eve for Santa to take a well-earned rest.

Back in shape with post-Christmas cycling
