It can be such a faff getting Christmas gifts for guys!  Don’t worry we’ve done the heavy lifting for you!

If the guy in your life is a practical sort (maybe more-so if he’s not to be fair!) here are some perfect Christmas gift recommendations put together by a fine panel of  awesome blokes from UK Men’s Sheds.

Perhaps the lad has a sweet tooth? Subtly remind him there are some D.I.Y jobs that need doing in your own special loving Christmassy way…
