Christmas can be a nightmare when it comes to buying presents. All year round your boyfriend tells you hundreds of things that he likes but when it comes to December you can’t remember what it is to get him. Or when it comes to it you can’t find/afford what it is that he wants. We have compiled a list of the best ideas to get for your man for Christmas 2011.
Now obviously what you buy them depends on how much you are planning to spend, so we have broken the list down to items over £100, £50-£100 and items less than £50, so there is a gift for all budgets.
Presents over £100
Most men love video games and gaming so the number 1 present is the PlayStation 3. The new PlayStation 3 is at the forefront of gaming, with unbelievable graphics as well as a well great game play. Another great thing about the PlayStation is that it can be used a Blue Ray disk player as well so it’s a great way of upgrading your DVD player.
You will be able to get yourself a PlayStation from about £220 upwards and research has found that Amazon seems to be the best place to buy one. PlayStation 3 is bound to be a success with your boyfriend and even if he’s got an Xbox or Wii the advanced level of gaming with the PlayStation still makes it an excellent gift.
Presents from £50 – £100
It’s another electrical item and this is for the music lovers, a pair of Bose over the ear headphones. Now if you are like me you might think that paying £90 for headphones is extortionate but if you are going out with a music lover you can be guaranteed that they will love them. Bose are well known for the quality in build and sound of their products, and these headphones definitely fit the bill. They do have the more expensive sound cancelling headphones which are around £250, but this pair provides almost as good sound quality at less than half the price.
The only problem with buying these is you might find your boyfriend turning up the volume and ignoring you.
Presents less than £50
If you can’t afford a PlayStation or your boyfriend already has one then how about getting a game for the PlayStation. The current most desirable game is Call of Duty Black Opps, which is getting rave reviews. It’s very popular at the moment so you need to make sure that you order it well in advance so you don’t find that there are none left for Christmas.
If you want to try to persuade your man to go on holiday, how about making a little hint and buying him a pair of Havaianas. For those of you that don’t know Havaianas are the most popular brand of flip flops. Havaianas come from Brazil and the most common style has the brazil flag on the strap. They are recognised as the most comfortable flip flops in the world as well as being a great fashion item.
