Buying a present for a man can be a proper nightmare.

Why do they have to be so difficult? I swear, if my husband says: ‘I don’t know. I don’t want anything’ one more time I’m going to lose it!

The men in my family are no better. Christmas-time always makes me cringe. While it takes almost no time at all to pick out the perfect pressies for my favourite females, I often end up clawing at the shopping centre walls when it comes time to get gifts for the guys.
