If you’ve spent time shopping with them, you’ll start to realise that men… simply don’t have the patience for it. While you’re browsing racks upon racks, they’ll be sitting off to the side and waiting for you to finish. So then, that begs the question: What do you gift to men who seem like they don’t want anything at all?
Rather than playing it safe with socks, or tee, we have some gifting ideas that will cater to different personalities! Just sit back, and watch as their faces light up with joy! Best of all, you finally get to convey your thanks, love and appreciation.

1. An Alcohol Box They Can Share With The Boys

What’s in the box:

1 Drink Easy No. 2 Bottled Cocktail ($16)

1 Festive Box ($20)
1 Happy Holiday Card ($5, complimentary for orders placed before 30 Nov)
This one is for the alcohol enthusiast on your gifting list! Let him crack open a cold one with his friends when they’re over — drinking is a social experience, after all. If he prefers lighter notes in his drinks, feel free to customise your own box to cater to his palate.

2. A Coffee Box To Kick-start His Day

What’s in the box:

It’s hard to get going in the morning, which is why an advent calendar filled with coffee bags is perfect: It gives him the kick he needes, it’s nifty, and easy to prepare. What’s more, there’s one baggie for every day of the month.
