Last Minute Christmas Gift Guide for the Men in Your Life…

I am really rubbish at buying gifts for men; I totally lack creativity and imagination.  I do feel (and this is a huge generalisation for which I apologise in advance) that women are easier to buy for.  Clothes, books, jewellery, candles, bath stuff, it’s all there.  Perhaps there is just more stuff marketed at women so I don’t need to think too much about what I’m buying.  But men… well, it’s a whole different ball game.  This year, I’ve come up with a pretty succinct, if not rather last minute, gift guide to suit the men in your life… or hopefully at least one of them!

Whisky

Another stereotype I’m afraid – where us girls have gin, men apparently favour whisky (it is at least true in the case of my husband and me).  I love smart gift sets like this one from The Whisky Shop, which are ideal for your Dad, Step-Dad or father-in-law, if they are drinkers:

A good way of getting your man to wear something you find him especially attractive in is to give it as a gift (what?!  It can’t just be me!).  I love these fitted men’s shirts from Charles Tyrwhitt:

To be honest, I’m not even sure what this is but it looks cool and it can answer all your questions – it’s basically magic.  I would have loved to see my dear old Grandad’s reaction to this (not that he ever used the internet in his entire life).  A handy addition to any bedside table:

For the genealogy geek in your life, this is absolutely ideal – a simple-to-use DNA testing kit that will show them exactly where their roots lie.  It is also a fantastic tool if they are interested in researching their family history.

I think that just about covers everything – alcohol, clothes, gadgets and, erm, DNA swabs… a gift to suit every man!

What have you bought for the men in your life?  I would love to hear your inspiration in the comments (to be honest, my male relatives will probably thank you)…
