Every year we struggle to buy the men in our lives the perfect Christmas present, which won't get left on a shelf and forgotten or thrown in the bin by the following Christmas. We constantly experience the "Oh you don't have to get me anything", "Something practical" or "Nothing at all, i have everything i need".
In summary, men are really hard to buy for and they don't even seem to know what they want.
So here are a few ideas that i've found my fiance rather liked and other ideas that men would actually love!
1. Personalised Cook Book - Men LOVE food & being cooked for, my mum always used to say it is the way to a man's heart. So why not create a book for your father or partners favourite family recipes that might not ever get written down? Fill it with pictures of people who matter most in his life along with amazing looking food! I chose to fill it with my partners favourite recipes particularly from his Grandma's and he loved it!
I used www.blurb.com to create his recipe book, but there are plenty other websites which let you create a online book which you can then publish and be delieverd to your door!
2. Personalised Monopoloy Board - My partners favourite game is Monopoloy! So I thought why not create our own Monopoloy Board with our own locations on personal to us? It was very time consuming i'm not going to lie, but it was worth it in the end when I saw his reaction! You can either make your own like I did by creating the board game on Word and cutting and sticking or you can get something similar off amazon for only £10.00!
3. Alcohol Bouqet- For those of you who are on Pinterest, you have probably seen these pinning around! I think there fab, who says you can't buy your man a bouqet for Christmas? For an easy tutorial look at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f2KrNCKeXkg
4. Romantic Vouchers - It's easy to forget to show your partner a loving gesture when life gets in the way. But sometimes it's nice to make them breakfast in bed or bring them a cup of tea in the morning? These vouchers are a bit of a fun token which will remind your partners just how much you love them!
