Men are mysterious in many ways (well they are to me anyway) but one of the BIGGEST man-mysteries has got to be…
Why they are so difficult to buy Christmas presents for?
Every year I set out to find interesting, unique gifts that the men-folk in my life will adore. And every year I find myself falling back on the same old standards.
A bottle of their favourite booze.
Socks. Undies. You get the idea.
And while there’s nothing WRONG with any of these options, what they lack is personality. That special something that reflects their individual interests or circumstances and says “I get you. Because I care enough about you to find out what makes you tick”.
This year rather than resorting to the boring old socks ‘n’ undies options, I challenged myself to come up with some unique gifts for the blokes of Brisbane.
So here are a few Christmas gift ideas for men that I think he’ll be happy to unwrap this year …
Stokell Driving Events “Radical Race Experience”
If the man your buying for is obsessed with cars and motor racing then why not make his Christmas by putting him behind the wheel of a real racing car! The “Radical Race Experience” is an unforgettable drive in one of the fastest production race cars ever made. Capable of speeds over 230 kms an hour, this is one Christmas present he’ll be talking about for a LONG time to come
