Perfect Gifts For Your Beau

It's that time of year again when the windows are dusted with snow and portray scenes from holiday favorites done all up in couture.  While doorman tips and end of the year philanthropic appeals have already been decided, actual gift giving is a bit trickier.  It's a little different and a lot more comfortable when it comes to family gift giving. In the social arena it's not as simple: What do you give to the special man or lady in your life? What about that platonic friend or your best bud?  How about colleagues, bosses, and other individuals?

 

Remember, gift giving is personal, but that doesn't mean you can't get a little help here and there.  Men tend to want something they can use, even something they need. They are not subtle hinters but instead want what they ask for; women are another story altogether.  The ladies want to feel lavished and surprised while still feeling as though they are being heard; guys look at things in store windows and listen to the hints their women drop.
