Now you’d think that buying presents for the lady in your life would be relatively simple, but it is easy to get this horribly wrong. There’s a fine line between classy and tacky and unfortunately many men fall into tacky territory when purchasing for their loved ones.
Thankfully there are a few rules to remember:
- Go for designer products if you are unsure of your recipient’s taste.
- Subtle is better than outrageous.
- Stick to colours and palettes that you know your recipient likes to wear.
- Think about their hobbies/habits and opt for a monthly gift subscription if all else fails.
