Men Can Be Hard to Buy for, But Here Are 27 Gifts I Think They'll Actually Like

Maxine Eggenberger

Whether he's your dad, brother, best friend or significant other, as much as you love him, there's no denying that gift shopping for the noteworthy men in your life is significantly more difficult than that of their female counterparts. Why? We can't quite put our finger on it. I have found that the men that I shop for seldom talk about the material things they like, which then involves a lot of guesswork on your part. From personal experience, I've also found that they're also surprisingly picky. 

This is why we decided to give you a helping hand where your male-orientated Christmas shopping is concerned. We've consulted with men of all ages to bring you a definitive edit of the things they'd really like to find underneath the tree on December 25.

From in-demand trainers and practical outerwear to more niche but rather ingenious options, keep scrolling to see and shop the best gifts for men that 2019 has to offer.
