Thoughtful gifts for men 2019 and midlife lately

By |2019-11-26T16:57:29+00:00November 26th, 2019|Categories: Christmas, Gift ideas|Tags: , , , |

Today I bring you the second of my three Christmas shopping posts with 'thoughtful gifts for men 2019'. I haven't had any help on this one because Mr MC insists that midlife men tend to already have whatever they need. However I've tried to go beyond the usual slippers and socks to come up with something a little different. A lot of the ideas are completely unisex so even if you aren't buying for a man, they're worth a glance. [...]

It's certainly taken my mind [...]
