Here I am again with a gift guide for those we find it impossible to buy for. Our boyfriends, husbands, brothers and Dads, I think we struggle with them all. I always love putting together gift guides each year, and for some reason I find the men's, the most enjoyable to write. I think it's because it's more of a challenge to find nice gift ideas and I feel that I am truly helping the people who read this one. Hopefully I have managed to find gifts to suit every kind of guy here!



Despite aftershave being a little bit of a cliché gift for a man, there are some lovely scents available at the moment; Alien For Him by Mugler is a new release, it's woody and masculine yet really fresh - I feel like you can always rely on Mugler for a good fragrance. It's available to buy alone as an aftershave or in a really nicely boxed gift set with a matching hair and body shampoo. If you fancy something a little muskier and sensual for your man, Dior Sauvage is sure to be a winner, it's really luxe and will be sure to impress.
I think men (or most men that I know) tend to expect to receive some kind of smellies, soaps and skincare at Christmas time, so it's nice to try and find them something a little more special or different. In our house we're a big fan of the Temple Spa range and their huge range of luxury  Christmas gifts are really worth checking out this year. They have well over twenty sets just for the guys, so there really is something to suit all ages, skin types and tastes. The Make My Day set is one of the mid price range options, with five products for your man to groom himself top to toe with, all of which smell amazing, in a handy black washbag. For something a little more affordable, but equally as delicious, take a look at the Fat Face men's gifts this year. All packaged in vintage style packaging, it definitely looks more expensive than it is and will suit most men's individual tastes. Gift sets are available, or buy the products individually so they cater perfectly for your man.
I've mentioned personalised gifts in a couple of my other gift guides, and this doesn't have to stop when it comes to buying presents for him. If he wears a suit for work, how about some personalised cuff links? Jewellery doesn't have to be just for the ladies! Have them printed with a name or a special date, they look smart, are really practical and mean something sentimental. For more of an every day personalised gift, check out Tesco Photo's personalised gift service (which has impressed me massively) and get him a photo memory printed onto a mug to use at home or work or log onto Prezzybox and choose something from their personalised items - I'm a big fan of the Marmite jar which you can personalise with any name, whether he's a fan and will actually eat it, or just keep it on the kitchen shelf as a cool display item, they're such a good idea for the man who has everything he needs.
And finally for the 18 and overs, treat him to a posh bottle of Mackmyra Gruvguld Whisky, and how do I know it's posh, I hear you say... Well it comes in a box, so that has to mean something right?! Seriously though, the name alone means 'gold from the mine' and it's created by an independent Swedish company who have been in the business for just over 20 years. This limited edition drink is sure to get you a few brownie points from your man especially if he's into trying something new when it comes to his drinks, whether he likes it straight or over ice, I'm sure he'll love it.
