I think there is a general consensus that when it comes to selecting gifts for guys, for the majority of us, we tend to have the hardest of times doing so. In theory it should be the simplest. In the sartorial department the overall range is nowhere near as broad as that for females. And I suppose you could argue the same goes for interests and hobbies. The same stereotypes more often than not being targeted solely towards males that is.
So who says you can’t get gift a male a luxurious candle? Or even a kitchen gadget like a toaster for that matter?
I’ve always found it considerably difficult to purchase gifts for males of all ages. I’m always filled with a firm sense of dread, that my selections are possibly a tad lame. Be it an awesome printed t-shirt or a pair of kicks. I’m never, truly confident in my choices. And maybe that is where my problem lies. My go to is always a t-shirt. Hardly inspiring I guess. So this time I’ve opted to stray away from the usual suspects. Not only t-shirts but those socks and jocks too. Let us be slightly more creative and stay away from the norm and all without being overly outrageous. Like maybe an awesome pair of Jack Purcell’s. And of course there are appliances for the home which no doubt will impress. And a gift idea I firmly believe should not be classed as an effeminate gift either. A hard lesson one Australian company learned with the backlash over their Christmas catalogue and classing everyday kitchen appliances as appropriate for only females. Guys can actually use blenders and pressure cookers too you know.
