So it’s December 1st and… it’s coming up to Christmas (how has this happened, I hear you cry) and some of you may have started to panic about the presents you need to buy. Buying presents for guys can be quite a tough task and in the past, I have gotten incredibly stressed out over a couple of potential gifts. I thought it would be fun and extremely useful to share some ideas for advent calendars that aren’t full of makeup and smelly skincare – you’re welcome!
Now we all love an advent calendar, it means a little treat every day and for most people that means the usual bite-sized chocolate pieces. I admit I don’t mind a little chocolate every now and then, but it can be a little underwhelming if you get excited to open your calendar every day! There are plenty of beauty alternatives out there but its hard to come across advent calendars specifically for guys. I discovered a few goodies that I thought might be a fab pressie for any men you are struggling to buy for!
