One of the worlds greatest mysteries is why is it so difficult to buy a gift for that special man in your life! Even from a young age, we struggle to know what to buy boys as you can browse the aisles of toy shops and the amount of boys toys compared to girls is outweighed massively!
So why is this? Firstly it’s because men can be a lot more guarded in articulating what they want. They sometimes feel that expressing a love for a nice comfy dressing gown or some shaving balm would mean someone casting judgement over them as a person or their character!
Want it, bought it!
Secondly, it’s possibly because as men generally don’t have the inclination to go on shopping sprees as women tend to, the necessity to buy is there more! If there is a gift your man really loves, it’s probably related to a hobby or an interest he has, so therefore if he needs that item, he’ll buy it for himself! This leaves us gift givers a little redundant!
Obviously, this doesn’t apply to all men, as some men have lists as long as their arm as to what gift they’d like for Christmas, but on the whole, men are problematic!
Another reason that can be applied is that as men can be creatures of habit, then they’re more likely to stick to a brand they love and not deviate from this. This makes it hard for the gift buyer as some brands don’t have an elaborate range of items you can purchase therefore any decent gift, it’s probably already been bought by your man already!
