Guys are hard to buy for, but if yours is one who would appreciate a little neatening up, then you can’t go past this DIY skinny tie from Design Mom.
You can pick up some great-looking retro ties just dying for a makeover from your local thrift store, or customise a new one that you know your man will love. Pop it in a box with a bottle of his favourite aftershave or aperitif and you’re all sorted for another year.

Chances are you have a thousand photos on your smartphone that your grandparents would love to see. Quite possibly, you also have some they won’t want to see. Either way, photos are a great gift for the oldies who like to keep up-to-date with their offspring’s offspring.

There’s one in every family — the sneaky baker of delicious treats who turns up with a picture-perfect cake that they “just whipped up” any time there’s a social gathering.
Painted wooden spoons are all the rage these days and rightly so — who can resist their cheery-coloured bottoms? Here’s a gorgeous tutorial from Little Bit Funky. Pair them with a new cookbook, some patterned tea towels or an oven mitt tied with ribbon for a sweet, kitchen-y gift.
