Christmas Gift Guide – Gift Ideas for the Man in Your Life

Gift ideas for dads

If your looking for gift ideas for dads or granddads or the other special men in your life this gift guide should have some perfect ideas to get your started on your christmas shopping. I find men are the hardest people to buy for at christmas time, unless they have a real specific hobby or are big fans of something (like Marvel Superhero’s, check out my Marvel gift guide here).

So if your man is hard to buy christmas gifts for check out these ideas.

Cake Smash Neath - gifts for one year old

How gorgeous is that little man above? Actually he isn’t so little anymore, he’s my best friends little boy and he’ll be 4 this month! Time flies so fast! But we are fortune to have photographed him and his new baby brother on a number of occasions (which you can see on the Cross-Jones Photography website!) over the years, although his 1st birthday cake smash remains one of my favourite shoots with him.

Obviously our little bean has yet to arrive so we are a long way off from worrying about 1st birthday parties and presents for him, but lots of our friends have little ones around this age. So today I am handing the blog over to Louise from Media Buzzer to chat to you all about amazing gifts for first birthdays. Continue reading
