Top 10 Christmas Gifts for Him
Looking for some Christmas gift ideas? Today we are looking at gifts for men. The Post Office Shop has a great selection for all the men in your family. Here are a few suggestions.
Christmas Gift Buying Habits
With just over six weeks to Christmas, many of us still haven’t got a clue what to buy our loved ones. In 2015 the most popular gifts for men were:
- Underwear (Christmas without a pair of socks under the tree just isn’t Christmas).
- Entertainment tickets
Women tend to buy more gifts than men, yet it is men that spend more on average. Maybe this is down to the fact that one in four men admit to completing all their Christmas shopping in less than an hour!
