Christmas Gifts for Him

Find the perfect gift for him in Belfast, with big shopping brands in CastleCourt and Victoria Square, or book a unique experience.

Music

Treat the music fan in your life with a gift from family-run Matchetts Music, a musical gem on Wellington Place, where you'll find a great range of guitars, drum kits and traditional instruments.

Or if they prefer listening to music rather than creating it, pick up a quirky wooden record player from Urban Outfitters in Victoria Square. It's portable, stylish and produces high quality sound. Pair this with a record from Belfast Underground Records on Upper Queen Street, and the gift will be music to their ears.

For something more classic, The Watch Store in Queen's Arcade stocks a great selection of stylish brands.
