Find the best Christmas gifts for him with our festive present round-up...
We all know that shopping for the men in our lives can be a minefield. When it’s not the fact that they seem to have absolutely everything they could ever possibly need, it’s that knowing what to surprise them with and whether they will like it seems near enough impossible. Add to that the fact that there’s probably more than one man to buy for in your life (and that bulk buying can seem like a bit of a cheap shot), and Christmas shopping for men really isn’t something us ladies look forward to. Which is where our help comes in.
Let’s start with your other half. While they have the endless choice of shoes, bags, make up and clothes to choose from for us, their nonchalance towards near enough everything you suggest can prove a bit of a nightmare come Christmas time. At the same time, if you don’t pull it out of the bag, you run the risk of receiving an equally bog-standard pressy as revenge a year on. But there’s one present in particular we’ve found to be an all-round crowd-pleaser: technology. Snap up the latest gadget and you’re guaranteed to please your other half – this year it’s the Kindle or Beoplay’s hottest new headphones.
As for family (brothers, dads and gramps’ included), you can’t go wrong with a token present. We’re talking ties, boxers, belts and aftershave. A man can never have too much of any of those mentioned, and with your stylish touch, they’ll have compliments flooding in (soon to be translated into praise for you, of course). If you’re looking to splash a bit of cash, though, why not treat your men to the latest watch on the block. Or how about some sporting equipment? See, the possibilities really are endless – all you needed was our direction!
