Shopping for men feels to me like wading in my Hunters through sticky-treacle.
It’s especially hard for my man who is fussy and far too honest about gifts when he doesn’t like them. So, I’ve been struggling with a wedding anniversary present that I’ll know he’ll appreciate.
One of my best friends has just bought her other half some smart sterling silver personalised collar stiffeners .
Her husband is the best-dressed heterosexual man I know & wears smart suits everyday so that works well. For my clothing-ambivalent boy, think these would be sadly wasted.
The good news is that I’ve found a slightly random but quite cool gift for him. Rockett and George, the self-styled ‘hive of cool accessories for the home’ is one of my favourite sites.
I discovered a great print of a non-sentimental poem on there Married Life which I’ve bought.
I really love the Life is Beautiful sign too. Maybe I could drop a hint to husband-mine? Just as long as he doesn’t buy me the diamond encrusted golden Silence sign . It’s very beautiful but the message would not make for a Happy Anniversary!
