Are you cutting it a bit fine with your gift buying this Christmas because you still don’t know what to get the man/men in your life? DON’T PANIC! Breaking away slightly from purely just fashion, here are a few ideas that will make great presents no matter what your budget or what he might be into!
Are you taking a trip this Christmas? Maybe you are off somewhere exotic to escape this cold, wet weather. Maybe you are off to somewhere extra wintery for a proper white Christmas. Or maybe you are just heading up the M6 to spend time with family. Whatever your plans are, we are going to make sure you travel in style with some of our Winter travel outfit advice.
The main thing when travelling is to think about your comfort, especially if you are travelling far. Think broken in jeans or chinos, t-shirts, knitwear and a nice jacket or coat.
The man bag is the ultimate accessory and can really complete an outfit. If you are just going away for a few days or to need something for hand luggage, a leather holdall is perfect – smart and sophisticated. You’ll want shoes that won’t hurt after wearing them all day and also something that slips on and off easily is especially handy, particularly when flying! Plus depending in how cold it is, you might need some winter warmers too.
The chances are you are buying a Christmas gift for a man this year, whether that be your dad, brother, friend or boyfriend. Chances are you aren’t sure what to get them. The further chances are that they aren’t giving you any ideas either.
Men can be notoriously difficult to shop for. There’s always the good old cliché of socks but are the men you know fed up with getting socks? They may have a specific interest or hobby, in which case you can go with that…unless of course they already have everything relating to it! They might be into tech, so a new gadget might do the trick. They might be the handyman around the place so a new tool to add to their collection could get the job done. Maybe they’re a big kid at heart so something novelty and fun will make them smile. Or they might be a bit of a foodie, so a cookbook or some rare, special ingredients could go down a treat!
Occasionally yes you will find a man who gives you a list or at least an idea of what they may like but we think the truth of the matter is that overall men just aren’t that bothered.
(…if all else fails, alcohol or vouchers might be your best option)
