Crikey, when did it become so close to Christmas?! If you haven’t started your shopping yet, then you should probably start thinking about it before you end up facing queues and sold out items.
Buying gifts can be difficult, especially for men who don’t give you much in the way of clues. And you probably don’t want to give him the same boring socks and other non-exciting stocking fillers again this year.
We have rounded up a few ideas for you to make this year’s stocking a bit more stylish and fun for him:
If he wears ties for work or going out, then a tie pin always comes in handy. Did you know that you can even get personalized tie pins with messages, initials or dates inscribed? Or if he likes something a bit fun then you could get him one that matches his interests such as the ones with motorbikes, footballs or whatever his interest is, there is probably a tie pin to match it.
A scarf is one of those items that men rarely will admit that they need, but will be very grateful for on the cold and frosty mornings. A nice woolen scarf or even a cashmere scarf will also help to complement his outfit and give him a boost in the style stakes.
If he likes his accessories then a bracelet or wristband style of jewellery could be a hit. The range at Emporio Armani is a great place to start your search with various items of men’s jewellery from bracelets to rings and everything else you can think of. Cuff links are also a nice idea to liven up his outfits a bit.
A bit like the scarves, men rarely will go out and buy themselves a hat for the winter months and yet will complain about how cold they get. There are some really stylish hats available at the minute with beanie style, bobble hat style or even the flat cap style sported by many a celeb! Help him to keep warm and stylish with a nice hat for him to open up on Christmas Day.
Don’t leave your shopping to the last minute this year because it will take you so much longer to do it all if you have to shop in the busiest periods leading up to Christmas. More and more people are choosing to shop online and many companies offer free next day delivery, so this could be the perfect solution.
The returns process is much easier than it used to be as well, with drop off points for returning items available in most areas. If you get ahead now, you can spend those days leading up to Christmas with your feet up. Or maybe even enjoy a glass of mulled wine whilst everyone else heads out into the last minute shopping carnage!
