All the best tech, gadgets, excursions and gift sets your brother will love this Christmas
It's finally November, which means it's now officially time to get excited about Christmas (as well as listen to non-stop festive bangers on Heart Extra, obviously) - and it's never too early to make a dent in your shopping list.
Seeking out gifts for family members if often equal parts exciting and stressful - so, to help you ease the latter, we've rounded up our best picks of gifts your brother will love.
We may live in an age of Spotify and streaming, but retro turntables are firmly back in the picture - and they're a must-have for any music lover.
The downside of a good quality record-player, though, is that they're often pretty pricey - but this one from House of Marley is the best of both worlds.
Its exceptionally high sound quality really is a rarity for its affordable price point - and, what's more, it's considerably more aesthetically-pleasing than many on the market.
The turntable takes barely any time at all to set up, and just requires a Bluetooth speaker for sound.
What's more, it's currently reduced from £199 to £179 *and* comes free with a Bob Marley vinyl - so snap it up quick!
These very small yet very powerful earphones are an ideal gift for gym-lovers, as their tiny size and lack of wires means they're perfect for exercise (and they also won't fall out during hectic regimes). They have three hours of uninterrupted battery-life, and their carrying case holds an added nine - meaning you can get 12 hours between charges.
Can't decide whether to buy you brother whiskey or beer for Christmas? Well, luckily you can now combine the two this Jameson Caskmates IPA Edition - a Christmas miracle!
If your brother the kind of annoying guy who hogs the Spotify playlist at every party and won't let anyone else get a look in, then this smart DJ controller could well be the perfect gift.
It was designed with beginners in mind, and is an easy (and affordable - some mixers can cost thousands!) way to learn to mix.
No male family-member Christmas list is complete without socks, but why not go one step further and give your brother the gift of luxury footwear this year?
Whether he's a golf enthusiast or complete beginner, this experience day will have your bro teeing like a pro in no time.
An ideal gift for men on the go, as this fragrance's innovative metal flask is refillable.
If you're at a loss to what your brother likes, it really is pretty difficult to go wrong with a shaving gift set - and this one from Gilette does the job perfectly.
There aren't many people who'd say no to a pair of Air Pods - so, if you're feeling particularly generous, why not splash out on these?
Smart Watches are slowly turning into a must-have for pretty much everyone - and this offering from Samsung is both lightweight and affordable.
Gifting prepaid subscriptions is becoming more and more popular - and Centr - the health and fitness app from Chris Hemsworth - is sure to give your brother motivation to achieve his fitness goals.

You'll likely have heard someone you know talking about DNA Kits. in just a few simple steps, the user can understand their genetic origins and find relatives they never knew existed - so an ideal gift for a family Christmas together.
