I dont know about anybody else, but I find men the most difficut people to buy for. Whenever I’ve previously asked a man what they want for christmas their answer always seems to be “I dont know” or “You don’t need to buy me anything”. Grrrrr. I do not know what men want at all! As I said in blog 1, women tend to be quite easy to buy for as you can base it off what you would like to recieve. However, this rule doesn’t particularly apply to a man, unless you are also a man. I have searched the internet high and low to be able to put this blog together. I have rewritten this blog about four times, changed the gift ideas many more and basically had to give up a few times and come back to it later. Absolute nightmare. However, I have done it. So without further or do, please enjoy blog no.2…
The Christmas Gift Guide Part 2: Men
100 Movies Scratch Poster
I think this is such a lovely gift idea. I assume all men have a space that they call “their own”. My boyfriend has an office, some men have a shed… wherever their safe space is, this poster will be an amazing feature to the room. It features so many classic movies, and the idea behind it is when you watch one of the movies listed on the poster, you scratch off the corrosponding foil to reveal a small image of the movie. Cool idea ,’ey? The best thing about this is that the enjoyment from it can be shared. I know that myself and my boyfriend would love to spend time watching all the films on this poster and have fun revealing the image underneath once the movie is finished. It’s not too expensive either so could be used as a stocking gift… or even a secret santa present!

Ray Gun Nose Trimmer
Funny and practical! Most men will get longer nose hair when they age, it just happens. Nobody likes to stare at a nostril with long wires hanging out of them- potentially with the odd bogey on. *Gag* This is the perfect gift for the man in your life who fits this description. I always think buying someone something which will make them smile is the best part of christmas. Novelty gifts always do this – and I always spend hours on Firebox to find the best gifts possible. This is a tame novelty gift… I normally buy something much ruder! Ray Gun Nose Trimmer. Fabulous.

Host Your Own Casino Night
Fabulous to keep your men entertained!! Gambling at home can make so many fun nights in with friends and family!!
