yourself, get the opposite for him (this excludes perfumes, as you’ll see
whisked away to Paris, so I didn’t know what to get to even compare with
that. However, I knew my hubby – like
most men – is a big kid at heart, so I figured that his favourite toy – Transformers
Bumblebee – wouldn’t be a bad way to go.

as hell that it got lost in the post.

embarrassment in front of our colleagues (but secretly love it). While men are mortified and get endless
ribbing from the other Neanderthals in the office. It’s just the way it works.

goodies from Rock Face, the McCoys of skincare – i.e. bloke’s stuff.
balms all designed with mankind in mind.
I’ve had a little go of the scrub myself, and it’s actually quite

colognes in distinctly different frangrances.
Obviously being aimed at blokes, the minis have very masculine and
testosterone-fuelled names such as ‘Steel’, instead of the female version, Neon
Pink, Neon Orange, etc.
