Christmas shopping takes a certain degree of planning, especially if you want to get it all finished in the least amount of time possible.

This means, at some point in the next few days you'll sit down to write out your shopping list - with the names and possible items you would like to buy for each person.

But when you're not sure what to buy your dad, brother, husband, boyfriend or uncle, then this task can seem impossible.

Take a look at our men's gift guide below for some much-needed inspiration. And, we promise there isn't a pair of slippers or socks in sight.
