Buying Christmas Gifts, for us,
comes in 2 categories.....
Category 1: those presents that are a joy to buy as you know that your Mum / sister / goddaughter / auntie will love them.
Category 2: essential presents that you struggle with every year. We’re thinking for the colleague you hardly know, the awkward uncle who doesn’t say much at Christmas, the brother-in-law who has everything or your husband / partner whose tastes are very expensive!
These categories only thinly disguise the fact that we find it a lot easier to buy presents for women!
Gift ideas for men can be tricky. When you've done the socks, golf balls and handkerchiefs, unless you want to spend a fortune on the latest gadget, it can be hard to know what to buy. However, practical gifts are a good option for the men in your life.
An experience, a day out or a voucher are good options as well as food gifts and food hampers. Don't you find the men in your house always do the curry and BBQ glory cooking?
So, with these gift giving headaches in mind, we've come up with our Christmas Gift Guide for the men in your life.

For the Brother or Brother-in-law that has everything because they buy it for themselves as soon as they want it - try our Curry Cookbook Kit which includes 4 pots and a cookbook.
