Does anyone else think that buying gifts for men is actually more difficult than buying for women, or is that just me? My man’s Christmas list usually includes some obscure car part or a power tool I’ve never heard of, but thankfully this year he’s let me off the hook and given me a few ideas that I actually understand. Whether the men in your life are petrol heads or movie buffs, this Christmas gift guide should cover a few bases and give you some great gift inspiration.
