The struggle of finding the perfect gift is one I know we all share. Men are unlike women in so many ways, but in particular, the way they shop is almost the polar opposite. Our totally scientific research shows that men shop only for what they need, and for the most part, they just buy the things they want – their list is limited. Whereas women buy what they need (want), and also have a long, handy list of other things they also need (want – let’s face it, we had the things we needed well before needing them), making us the easier sex to buy for come present giving time!
My partner is the hardest person to buy presents for since the beginning of time! After 5 years in a relationship, I have exhausted every gift imaginable over birthdays, anniversaries and Christmases. The only hint he has ever given when I ask what he wants is an Aston Martin (keep dreaming babe)!
A little closer to earth, we’ve found one gift every man appreciates is a beautiful, versatile watch. While it may not be equal to a sports car, a watch achieves the perfect balance between need and want – they are beautiful enough to want a few different styles, and hey, a man needs to know the time!
Fossil is the one stop shop for beautifully made, modern watches for men. Their range is vast, and with prices that won’t force you to live off canned tuna for a month to afford them!
