Shopping for the perfect gift for the special man in your life can be a bit of an ordeal. 

You just can't keep up with whatever new gizmo or franchise he is into and you absolutely can NOT get him another pair of socks. 

Whether you know your guy back to front or need a bit of festive inspiration, we have most definitely got you covered. 

1. A timeless accessory

4. Wear him out 

If you man is a bit of an outdoorsy type, why not get him out of the house one weekend with a fun adventure break. Whether you would like to join him or just send him off with the lads, this one will definitely keep him occupied.

5. Pamper him 

There are two types of men. One who has a rigid skin care regime more detailed than yours and one who you would be lucky to get to just wash his face. Either way, you can help your man take care of himself by getting him an excellent skin care product.

And trust us, he will be thanking you when his skin is literally glowing.

7. Hook him up 

Never let him use his crappy phone as an excuse not to text you. Instead, spoil him with a top notch smart phone and prepare to send emojis to each other to your hearts content.
