Pens, calendars, and diaries
Whoever still uses these probably already has one too many. They make an impersonal gift that reflects a lack of knowledge about and/or interest in what a man really likes or needs.
Ties and aftershave
Of course, after pens, what else do you give a man? Unless you’re sure a man regularly wears ties and actually shaves his beard himself, it’s best to opt for a scarf or quality moisturiser.
Yes it’s practical and one can never have enough but underwear is only ever appreciated as a gift when intended as a means to something that requires it be taken off, rather than an end in itself.6
So you got yourself a new hobby but wait till you’ve really mastered the craft before expecting others to be happy to display or wear your work.
Anti-ageing, skin rejuvenating, blemish removing skincare/facials
So a man is getting old. Why dampen his Christmas spirit by pointing it out – even if subtly.
How many of these will you be getting this year? Any other items you think should be included in the list?
