I find that men can be the hardest to buy for. In my opinion, they seem to take a more practical approach to gifts. Maybe they are not as tempted or enticed by pretty sparkly things as we are. We are happy to duplicate especially when it comes to shoes and handbags. Whereas one good quality item seems to be enough for them.
Another aspect certainly in my family is that instead of giving useful hints they go off and buy what they need themselves. Infuriating.
Anyway, I have put together a list of items that will help me and ideally you to choose a present for your father, uncle, brother, husband or son.
