Gift Ideas: For Dads, Brothers, Boyfriends and Husbands

Us girls are so easy to buy for, well at least I think we are. I know guys disagree with this one, but the options for us girls are pretty endless – anything from a beauty product or home décor piece to a recipe book or a scarf. Guys, on the other hand, are my worst to buy for. Every single time I am stumped, and the few ideas I do have just seem so mundane and boring. I would cry if every single birthday I got a pair of socks, golf balls and a book!

I have recently had the birthdays of my Dad, my Brother and my Brother-in-Law in one go so to try and inspire myself (and try and help you with some ideas along the way) this is my best attempt at a gift guide for Him for general gifting – no gimmicky Father’s Day-like gifts, just useful, thoughtful gifts that can work for any birthday or special occasion. Shout if you have any more to add to the list!
