Men are difficult. But what's new? But they become even more difficult at Christmas. Perhaps that's just a female opinion however they're pretty much so unfussy that it makes finding a gift for them ten times more complicated. Hopefully however, this gift guide will do just half of the work for you.
For your boyfriend or brother
Molecular Mojito Kit, Travel Guide for the Young, Sexy and Broke, Mr Porter Paperback, Hotel Chocolat Portly Penguins, Scratch Map, Aesop Skincare Set, Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish, Jumper
All of the above (the perhaps excluding the penguins) are probably exactly what James, my boyfriend, would not want, ha! However if you've got a boyfriend or brother, some of these may just be the trick for them. My brother's a bit of a traveller and I reckon he'd find this map where you scratch away where you've been, would be pretty smart. The Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish will forever hold a special place in my heart and if you find your boyfriend/brother is forever pinching your favourite cleanser yet refuses to purchase some for himself, this matte brown version may be more appealing.
This fun mojito making kit would be great for anyone who fancies getting creative on Christmas Day, and how gorgeous does this jumper look? Everyone needs something snuggly at Christmastime.
For your Dad
Table Top Football, Shaving Kit, Life Story, Star Wars Boxset, Tom Kerridge's Best Ever Dishes, iPad Cover, Tie, Hotel Chocolat Beer, Hotel Chocolat Christmas Sleekster Selection, Where Chefs Eat, Old Fashioned Bottle Opener
Your Dad just wants something that's going to guarantee to keep him entertained over the festive period. From incredible nature in David Attenborough's Life Story to the entire Star Wars saga on BluRay to release his inner nerd.
Alternatively, who doesn't love chocolate at Christmas? This beautiful assorted box of Chocolates from Hotel Chocolat will no doubt leave him happy, and why not throw in a Cocoa Beer whilst you're at it?
Cook books are always a great gift, especially when it's someone like Tom Kerridge whose new book is bursting full of incredible food photography and recipes galore.
For the novelty factor, why not try this table top football game to keep him entertained at his desk at work or just to keep him entertained full stop.
And it isn't Christmas without a Christmas tie for your dad. This subtle reindeer print will allow him to keep Christmas going all year round.
