The Do's and Don'ts of Buying for Him This Christmas

Buying for the men in your life can be tricky. I mean what do you get the man who has everything? Or the man who doesn't really know what he likes? Or more importantly, the one who's answer to "what would you like for Christmas?" Is "oh I don't know... Surprise me!" To help you get your head around the stressful experience that is shopping for the complicated man, I thought I'd give you some pointers in the form of some Do's and Don'ts!

Personalised gifts are that extra bit special. The man might have everything, but he doesn't have something personalised by you! If you're planning on getting him a leather wallet, why not pop a cute picture of you and him inside? Or if you're going down the jewellery route then you can always get something engraved

Shopping without a list or a budget can be stressful and dangerous money wise. If you don't give yourself some guidelines before you head out you'll find yourself buying something on an impulse. You want your gift to show some thought so do your research and be sure to plan before you purchase. Look through your finances and check online for some unique gift ideas for men to give you inspiration.

Every year I've been with my boyfriend I've bought him something I think he'd like. Usually clothes. Don't get me wrong, my boyfriend loves clothes, but he'd usually prefer to get them himself unless has something very specific in mind. So this year, I've decided to stick to the things I know he loves. If you're struggling to think of what to get your man, just think about the things he's passionate about. Does he have a favourite TV show? A favourite band? Does he play sports? It's likely he'll love a present you've bought him that relates to a passion of his.

Unless it's a lovely leather bag or a pair of cufflinks, I'd give work stuff a miss. No one really likes to be reminded of work, and the majority of things work related you'll find he'll buy himself anyway. 

I hope this guide helps you when you're out shopping for the men in your life! For more gift ideas take a look at my Gift Guide for Her!
