I love Christmas shopping but often find it difficult choosing presents for people. I want to buy them something they will like and use but I also like surprising them so try not to ask what they would like unless I am completely stuck for ideas. I would say men are harder to choose for than women, there are only so many times you can buy someone socks and aftershave. If you’re in need of some gift inspiration for the men in your life hopefully this gift guide might be just what you’re looking for.
