The Lad in your Life – Gift Guide

I had so much fun writing my Single Girl’s Gift Guide that I thought I’d write one for the lad in your life. Many of us have a variety of men in our lives (not in the Samantha Jones way unfortch) so we need to make sure our present buying is adaptable to how they feature and how important they are to us. So here’s what I suggest you buy the different lads in your life…

For the guy at work who always smells of balls…

I get it buddy, we’ve been grafting for 10 hours straight and your scrotum has been caged up for the vast majority of that time but DAMN let them breathe. For him I’d buy some extra strong cologne like this Miller and Harris beaut or some boxers like these, that don’t cut off circulation to the testes.

For the fuck boy that ghosted on me…

I have no idea what happened to him. I’m pretty sure he didn’t die as he continually views my Instagram story but doesn’t text me back. For this dude, I don’t want to spend too much. I’ve already wasted a lot of energy, so I’m thinking a Netflix subscription so he can continue his ‘chilling’ or an overnight bag like this one so he can hop easily from one bed to another.

For my friend’s brother who I have a crush on…

This present is always going to be risky. You want to buy him something cool enough that he suddenly fancies you back but not too obvious that your friend twigs onto your brother lust and gets aggy with you. I suggest Alan Partridge’s new book Nomad or casual tee that’s in his style. Skate Hut do some cracking ones here.

For the pervy Uncle who can’t not comment on your singledom…

You can’t go a Christmas period without feeling like he’s staring at your cleavage for too long or hearing how you’re too pretty not to have a boyfriend and experiencing a permanent chill going up and down your spine. For this fellow I suggest purchasing a pair of sunglasses which will prevent you from having to catch his lingering glare.

For your boy who done good…

He’s bought you half of Pandora, a Ted Baker make up bag, a Michael Kors purse and some Adidas Stan Smiths. It’s true love. So what does he deserve in return? Aside from your millionth Facebook status update declaring just how amazing he is, why not treat him to a new pair of fresh kicks? Skate Hut stocks Vans and Nikes and Lord knows you’d deserve at least one Instagram shout out for being such a great bae.

For your boy mate who’s had a crush on you for donkeys…

Now this is the guy that you need to go ALL OUT on. He’s picked you up from a random guy’s house when the walk of shame was too much. He’s pretended to be your boyfriend when the creepy guy at the bar wouldn’t leave you alone and he’s definitely held your bags during a shopping trip at some point. You can’t quite give this guy what he really wants (your vagina) but why not treat him to some new wardrobe staples here.

There are just a few of the guys you should be buying for. Whilst the type of guy I’m suggesting is tongue and cheek, I actually recommend you check out Skate Hut for any guy in your life as they stock a range of clothes and accessories. Gwan girl.

This post was written in collaboration with Skate Hut but as ever all stupid views are my own.
