Presents for the ‘HIM’ in your life.  The him who always says ‘no, really, I don’t want anything’.

The him, who you last saw when he was five and now has his own flat, so technically is past the point of a tenner. The him who already owns every colour of blue shirt on the spectrum.

The him, who only shops in Hoxton and will only buy his socks from a tiny boho boutique in Osaka. The him who doesn’t do personal hygiene, let alone aftershave.  It’s a dilemma. Well here at The Indytute we relish the ‘hims’. We like to get hims out and about in London, and we’ve got gifts from food to booze to walks and niche experiences.  If you can't get the 'him' to leave the house then we've got that covered too.

You’ve gotta love him.

You just can't help but buy a small token.. something you can do together. Discover the murky history of the coffeehouses.  You'll be guided by award winning historian, Dr Matthew Green and an army of actors in this audio adventure.
