I don’t know about you guys, but when it comes to buying Christmas presents for men things can get pretyyyyyyyyy hard.
Like, what do they even want? Every time I ask my dad, stepdad, uncles and boyfriend what they want for birthdays and Christmas I just get “I don’t know” or “I don’t really care.”
So to save us all the hassle of trying to get answers out of brick wall, I’ve compiled a handy list of Christmas presents that every guy will love.
Check them out below!

Aramis has been a tried and true favourite of my boyfriend’s for a number of years, and this latest fragrance is no exception!

This captivating fragrance arouses the senses with vibrant notes of ginger, exotic woods and aromatic spices including nutmeg and tonka bean.
2. John Varvatos – RRP $210 (200 ml)
No guy in his right mind would turn down one of these on Christmas day!
