why is finding a gift for men so hard? why are they so hard to please? a lot of men hate bits, collective memoirs, so finding something to buy them can become a bit of a challenge. a guess this means that you have a limited list; i now have a few places that i know he will always be pleased to receive from -any products from aesop and kiehls, accesories and shirts from john simons, scarves and silk handkerchieves from peckham rye, vintage books and out of print books from glyn’s books, or anything from the numberous antiquarian book shops on cecil court, poetry books from daunts, travel notenooks from smythsons – you can even have your own initials embossed on the beautiful leather covers, margaret howell for vases and tops, rapha for absolutely anything cycling, brooks for classic cycling bags, chapmans for classic bags. if that doesnt help you find a gift on a birthday, then please let me know your great finds……i’d love to extend that list.
