Boys can be a nightmare to buy for, whether it’s the boyfriend or your brother. Girls are far more easily pleased; anything from the Nars Guy Bourdin collection will do just fine, thank you very much!
The high-street is beginning to pay attention to our woes though, and there are now novelty stocking fillers popping up in the likes of Topman. ASOS is especially good for these, particularly if you’re looking for something not-so-novelty, like a smart iPad case (how swish is this Ted Baker one?!)
When he wants a few new items for his wardrobe, it’s easier just to take him along Christmas shopping with you and let him try everything on – especially when it comes to difficult things like jeans or shoes. Oi Polloi stocks tons of different jeans brands, and if he’s in need of a smart pair, you can’t go wrong with their Nudie collection.
If you must leave one thing as a surprise though, you can’t go wrong with a Christmas jumper, and this Topman one isn’t so garish that he’ll refuse to wear it.
A few stocking fillers like this Batman mug (perfect for die-hard fans) and the Hangover Cookbook are always appreciated too, and Urban Outfitters always seem to hit the nail on the head when it comes to gifts.
Does anyone else find shopping for men almost impossible?!
