I don’t know about you, but when it comes to buying Christmas gifts for him, I get anxiety just thinking about it.
Girls are sooo much easier to buy for, I just get them stuff I would want myself. But Christmas gifts for guys literally takes up my entire brain leading up to Christmas.
The hardest of hardest to buy gifts for is my dad. Garth, I can kind of wing it a bit with, he tend to trust my judgment. But dad knows what he likes. And all he asks for every year is “well-behaved children”. So not helpful dad!
I can’t be the only one struggling with this, so that’s why I sat for hours this morning and made this massive collage of suggestions for Christmas gifts for him. I have mainly focused on fairly classic fashion and beauty products. I feel that gadgets need a post of their own. There is just too much to choose from!
I have loosely based it on 4 different characters. My dad would be the lower left corner, whilst Garth would be the lower right. My non-existent best gay friend would probably be at the top right. I find that the bigger gifts are the hardest. So I have tried to choose things in quite a large price range, but with a focus on those special investment pieces.
However, let’s not forget that experiences usually is the best gift of all. Anything from a dinner and a movie to a long weekend in New York. Or why not go see sumo wrestling or jump out of an airplane? The list is endless.
I hope you haven’t missed that it’s black friday next week. These days its actually a black-week, so it’s super important to do some groundwork and then keep checking in on your favorite shops when the sales start kicking off.
My Black Friday guide is usually very popular. I promise to let you know as soon as a sale comes on or if I find a useful discount code. But you have to get going now. Pick the stuff beforehand and be ready to click click click. I usually choose 4 items per person and then at least one will end up going on the sale.
Ok, stop reading blogs now and start doing your research chop chop!
