Christmas Present Buying for Boyfriends/Dads/Brothers


I can't get enough of Christmas, it's the most wonderful tiiiime of the yeeeear (yes I did just sing that as I typed it) and I usually start picking up Christmas gifts at the very start of December. However, this year has seen me running around like a headless chicken trying to get all my presents sorted, and I didn't actually get paid until Friday, which of course makes everything even harder. Who's idea was it to pay us 5 days before Christmas? 5 DAYS. It looks like I'm definitely going to be THAT mad woman dashing around late at night before all the shops close, desperately trying to get hold of everything I need. 

Another factor that's making my Christmas rush ever-so difficult is the fact that my Boyfriend is the hardest person to buy for. Ever. I love him to the ends of the Earth and back again, but jeeeez he's a difficult one when it comes to presents! That's why when the lovely people at Bonobos* (also known as the Bonobos Ninjas, which might I add, is the coolest thing ever and amuses me endlessly) introduced me to their gift guide for the man who has almost everything, it was an absolute blessing. 

Number 1 - It's colour co-ordinated, and let's face it, who doesn't love a bit of colour co-ordination in their lives?
Number 2 - They have honestly thought of EVERYTHING. I can easily pick out what I'd buy for each and every man in my family. There's even really cool stuff like a trip to space, I wasn't lying when I said they'd thought of everything!

I thought it'd be nice to show you both mine & Nathan's picks from the bunch, in the hopes that if you've got a man in your life who's particularly difficult to buy for, or if you're last minute panic-buying, this will help! 

MY PICKS
 Can't go wrong with a good ol' check shirt, I personally love Nathan in a flannel shirt and the great thing is that I can steal it to wear for myself as well if I happen to get chilly and whatnot ;) 

♥ Isn't this alarm clock the coolest looking thing ever? I know I definitely get sick of the sound of my iPhone alarm so this is a pretty cool alternative.

NATHAN'S PICKS
 These beanies caught Nathan's eye as a wooly hat is his one staple piece during winter. He particularly went for the red one because it's the most 'christmassy'.

Being ever-so practical, he also picked these jeans. He goes through cheap pairs of jeans like there's no tomorrow, so he said he'd like to have a decent pair that'd last him longer! (Nathan only ever wants practical things, can you see now why it's so hard for me to treat him?!) 

I hope this post has inspired you in some way, especially if you're like me and are having to panic-buy your last bits and pieces just days before Christmas! If you like what you see, be sure to head on over to the full gift guide hereBonobos currently ship to the US, Canada, Mexico, Australia and NZ, which sucks for us lot living in the UK, but never fear, the ninjas are working on it.
