Male Christmas Guide 2016 // Lucyy Writes

Why are men so difficult to buy for? Each year still remains a struggle, not wanting to be a bore by sticking to the same old type of presents & don't even get me started on Secret Santa's. Despite the unwritten rule of December - not to buy much or anything at all, they still go on ordering oblivious to the fact you may have wanted to get them similar for Christmas. If you too have a difficult male to buy for hopefully something below will be the perfect fit & you can always check out my 2015 Christmas Male Gift Guide here for a little extra help.

Firstly you can't go wrong with a whole load of chocolate to fill the stockings or make a gift up. Here I have a giant chocolate coin, American sweet treats, terry's chocolate orange, novelty Christmas puddings & of course the king of all chocolates - Monty Bojangles - which are 3 for 2 this year in Boots. You seriously need to try them. Amazing.

Fragrance wise, it's all about Chanel Bleu, it smells incredible & who wouldn't love to see this under their tree feat Chanel's beautiful wrapping. Boots have been incredible for offers this year fragrance wise. Following on with the 'beauty' topic, we have the incredible magnesium spray by Better You both myself and my Dad swear by for aches & pains, only this time in miniature form and in sensitive. This is to go in my Dad's stocking as a little extra, along with the Amaretto Lip Balm from Crazy Rumours. Both can be found in Holland & Barrett's.

Fashion wise, men can be blooming hard! Here I have a leather travel bag from Jasper Conran found in Debenham's. This is pricey but again with the recent deals if you have someone who travels a lot with work it's a great gift - plus if they're visiting for the holidays they can take their stuff home without the hassle of extra bags. You can't have Christmas without a novelty tee whether it's sleeping off one too many drinks OR for Christmas PJ's. I picked up the fabulous instagram themed ELF t-shirt in Matalan but Elf merchandise is everywhere this year. Other gifts to keep in mind are just some basics like the Armani t-shirts my Dad is obsessed with. I gave him a pack last year, he wears them underneath so much & this was probably the only thing he asked for this year - though he's got a whole tonne of stuff to make up for working all day Christmas Day and Boxing day.

I feel like food is always a good topic to head to for guys, Nando's always have great gift sets to keep in mind - with incredible offers in a lot of stores. Here I have their hottest selection, perfect for my friend who loves both nandos, hot food and a long running joke I won't get into. Again, fun mugs are always something to look out for, especially for office secret Santa's. I now have the tradition of picking out a 'heat changing' mug for my brother each year, I've so far done Pacman, Tetris and maybe another but this year I've gone for the classic Harry Potter. Also, mug and cup wise, we have the Cup & Saucer set* from I Just Love It featured in my last blog post.

Tech wise, depending on your budget there's a tablet out there for everyone. However we all have enough tech and apple products in our household and so this year the Kindle Fire takes the hot spot in which we've purchased for my Grandad. He'd taken over my Grandmas Samsung Tablet but he definitely doesn't get along with it. Here's to hoping that his use of a paper white and the previous tablet will make this a breeze for him.

And lastly, one item that's been purchased not once, but three times in our household for various people this Christmas....the official Emoji Card Game. There are so many Emoji games out there, this one in my opinion seems to be the best & selling out fast. I've had this for a month or so, where Next were the only stockist not charging an extortionate amount for it. If you're looking for a secret Santa, difficult friend or some fun after Christmas dinner this is the one.

Are you too struggling on what to buy for the males in your life this Christmas? Lucy xx
