I’m writing this because I always find it quite a challenge to buy for men. Especially for these two men. This is because Big Daddy is so old that he has finally collected everything that he’s ever wanted and Little Daddy likes shopping and always buys everything he wants, before anyone else has a chance.
So it’s a struggle. I never expect to get it right so the main goal is to not get it completely wrong! Shopping for girls is so much fun; in fact, it’s what I do best. Shopping for boys is sheer torture. Who can help me? This year I have decided to look at ASOS for ideas. With free delivery and free returns, I can’t go wrong can I? I don’t work for ASOS, in case you were wondering. I just love that whole free delivery business.
I’m thinking clothes, so the question is, can I find father’s day presents for an 89 year old and a 37 year old from the same online store? On a budget? Let the search begin!
OK, well straight away it’s quite off putting trying to buy clothes for my dad that are modelled by men that are too young to be his grandchildren (ish). I understand that 89 year olds are not ASOS’s target market so I’m not complaining. Keep searching. I’m looking in polo shirts, because he looks so cute in a polo shirt. Just need to stop looking at who’s wearing them. And keep this person in mind:
So, on to Little Daddy. Now Little Daddy and I are separated but I see him enough to get an idea of what he likes. He’s interested in fashion, so I reckon I can be a little adventurous. Back to the search. Stay positive, I’m halfway there.
It’s too late. I’ve lost it. The pressure is too much and the towel is thrown in. Aftershave again!
Do you find buying gifts stressful? What strategies do you use? What should we get Little Daddy? Can you help me?
