7. Leatherman MUT Explosive Ordinance Disposal Multi Tool
The handiest present on this list by far. The Leatherman MUT line is designed for active duty and 'specialised' doesn't even begin to describe it. From cap crimpers, a beefy field blade, and fuse-wire cutters, to a carbon scraper, bolt override tool and a replaceable C4 punch, the Leatherman MUT EOD has everything you could need in an easy-access configuration. And while it's total overkill, they use these to diffuse bombs so it comes with 100 man-points as standard.

It's not Christmas without a bottle of the good stuff. Ledaig 10 Year is a peaty whisky from Tobermory on the Isle of Mull. Matured in superior Oak casks, it's maritime and smoky and it rivals some of the Islay drams for power. The ten year old balances the intensity of youth with a rounded, well-aged spirit. Even if he's not a dedicated whiskey drinker, there should always be a bottle in the back of his cupboard for the worst and best of times.
