Here are our top 10 gift ideas for men to suit every personality…
Christmas Gift Ideas for The Puzzler
Logical, original, creative thinkers. The Puzzler loves theories and ideas. Exceptionally capable and driven to test theories and solve puzzles, crosswords, loves Sudoku and reading WhoDunIt novels. Quiet and reserved, logical and analytical.
The Perfect Gift: Military Vehicle Driving- chose from a variety of vehicles to learn to drive. Discover how different each can be and work through the best way to drive each one. One-to-one with an instructor, this activity is all about the driver and the vehicle.
Christmas Gift Ideas for The Grumpy Old Guy
We all know at least one. That somebody considered to be bad-tempered, disagreeable, or stubborn, a killjoy or a wet blanket. Often old, but not always! Deep down a total softy who loves nothing more than being with the grandkids, but likes to appear a Humbug.
The Perfect Gift: Tank Driving Taster- the ultimate excuse to start every sentence with ‘In my day…’ spend the afternoon driving WWII military vehicles and imagining what it was actually like to drive these vehicles.
Christmas Gift Ideas for The Boy Racer
A level-headed young man, usually aged between 17-25 years old (or acts like it…) who spends every possible moment making modifications to his vehicle to improve performance. The use of stickers, spoilers borrowed from British Airways, more lights than a floodlit Wembley Stadium and practical rims that cost more than the car are all well implemented by the boy racer. As all boy racers are aware, such modifications make a car not only cool but also endlessly faster. Most boy racers obtain this valuable information from such reliable sources as their mates.
The Perfect Gift: Tank Paintball Battles- get kitted out in a tank suit, helmet and communication gear, learn to drive an FV432 through a periscope in battle conditions around our tank course set in a World War II bombing range. Then practice charging, loading and aiming a cannon mounted on top of the tank and shoot firstly at static targets and then at your opposition tanks. Fun filled, exciting, adrenalin pumping, speed daemon pleasing muddy ‘winner takes all’ fun…. In a tank!
You will be the hero of the Boy Racer’s Christmas!
Christmas Gift Ideas for The Eccentric
Eccentricity is often associated with genius, intellectual giftedness, or creativity. People may perceive the individual's eccentric behaviour as the outward expression of their unique intelligence or creative impulse. Or, they may just think them a little bit off centre!
The Perfect Gift: A visit to our Armourgeddon Museum. 3 hangers’ worth of tanks, military vehicles, communication equipment, World War memorabilia, guns, bombs and even a Sherman Tank. Hours and hours of entertainment and the possibility of watching some of our tanks out on exercise.
Christmas Gift Ideas for The Comedian
The giggler, the practical joker, the one who finishes every sentence with a joke. The one who never gives a straight answer or takes a situation seriously. Certainly, the person to have around on Christmas Day!
Perfect Gift: Tank Paintball Battle! Your joker will be crewed with two others, dressed in battle fatigues, suited, booted and given a helmet. Then it’s into the tank to firstly, learn to drive the tank around the bombing range, then practice charging, loading, aiming and firing paint-filled Ping-Pong balls from the cannon atop the tank. First up, static targets (avoiding the cows…), then into battle conditions against another crew. Best of 12 shots from six locations.
Christmas Gift Ideas for The Big Kid
This is a man who is over 30 years of age but spends his time playing video games online. This person can be a very responsible individual but at times can act just like a kid. The nieces and nephews LOVE him and jump on him as soon as he arrives with that dreaded shout… BUNDLE!!!!! Then you have to deal with the mess and the tears once he’s left.
The Perfect Gift: The big kid taking a smaller kid to the metaphorical sweet shop! Buy this Big Kid a Dads and Lads session where neither actually has to be a Dad or a Lad but means that one person learns to drive one of our FV432 tanks whilst the other is a passenger. After a rollercoaster ride around the WWII bombing range tank track, both driver and passenger will learn to charge, load, aim and fire the cannon on top of the tank at static targets. The perfect gift to share.
Christmas Gift Ideas for The Man Who Has Everything
You can search every shop, department store and Internet site You can read every gift guide and gifting blog going with a ‘yup, he’s got one of those…’ There are enough pairs of slippers, wallets and body wash in his cupboard to last until 2030!
The Perfect Gift: An adventure day out at Armourgeddon. Fill a whole day with activities to please this hard-to-buy-for individual and cover off Christmas and his next birthday in one. Start off with a scout around our museum and spot our film star vehicles from Evita, Saving Private Ryan, Allies and the Brad Pitt film, Fury. Then pick from the numerous options of tank or military vehicle driving experiences that we have on offer. Top off the day with some clay pigeon, archery or air rifle shooting for an adrenalin-fuelled day that will be talked about for years. Buys you plenty of time to find a slippers alternative for next year!
Christmas Gift Ideas for The Petrol Head
Quiet and reserved, interested in how and why things work. This person displays excellent skills with all things mechanical. Usually interested in and talented at extreme sports. Not overly concerned with respecting laws and rules if they get in the way of getting something done. Extremely analytical, they excel at finding solutions to practical problems. And they have a Catch-Up shortcut set for Guy Martin.
Perfect Gift: Tank Driving Experience. Experience the thrill of driving one of our tanks on a one-to-one basis with an instructor. Once mastered, they will attempt to negotiate our tank track in battle conditions through the periscope. Watch out cows!!
Christmas Gift Ideas for The Action Man
A man of action. Whenever it is, wherever you are, Action Man will be there to make sure the roads are clear of obstructions. He loves extreme sports and obstacle races, anything with Tough or Gauntlet or X in the title and he is there on the starting line, bandana on, mud stripes on the cheeks. He is a man of action, a man in the now, he is Action Man...
The Perfect Gift: Woodland paintball. Played out in the woods of Southfield Farm consists of many different scenarios. The likelihood is that they have done this in the past; they loved it and will be very excited to do it again. Buy them some face paints too and Christmas Day can be completed with your camouflaged Action Man racing around the house with imaginary guns practicing their paintball moves.
Christmas Gift Ideas for The Gun Slinger
A person who collects, uses, is quite knowledgeable about and is especially skilled in the use of all kinds of guns. Usually male but not exclusively so, the Gun Slinger collects empty cartridges, knows how to disarm, strip and rebuild their SA80 at the gun range blindfolded in less than 30 seconds. They may possibly have a T-Shirt to state this fact, too.
Perfect Gift: Air Rifle Shooting. Using the latest pre-charged, bolt action sniper air rifles; take to our re-created WWII trench ranges where only the steadiest of hands will win. Learn to aim and shoot, then challenge your fellow snipers to a bullseye competition.
