I think all women around the world can agree that gift shopping for a man is next to impossible.
From someone who has bought her brother the same Adidas trio-shower gels and razors from Shoppers for the past 5 years, I know what it's like to see the disappointment slowly grow on their face when they unwrap your poorly wrapped present.
So to avoid the awkward "I love it's" - that we all know are "I hate it's" - I've compiled a list of gifts that will make whatever man is in your life a little more merry this Christmas:
A cologne set is essentially every women's go-to gift for men, I mean you can't go wrong with a killer fragrance. These one's from Nordstrom are on a whole new level and will have him feeling and smelling extra good.
Giorgio Armani Men's Mini 3-Piece Spray Collection is available HERE
Dolce and Gabbana Beauty LightBlue Eau Intense Scent is available HERE
YVES SAINT LAURENT L'Homme Classic Eau de Toilette Set is available HERE

A watch is a classic gift that never goes out of style. They last forever, and are worn on the daily. They also can come in a bunch of different styles that suit your man's taste, as per below we got: the classic, the techie the "too cool for school".
Daniel Wellington Classic St. Mawes is available HERE
Apple Watch Space Grey is available HERE

Is your man stylish AF? Well then look no further with this gift. Pocket squares are (in my opinion) the perfect accessory for a man. They can change his formal wear from "didn't he wear that suit to prom?" to "WOW THAT MAN HAS AMAZING STLYE, LOOK AT THAT SUIT!"
