Let us help you find the perfect gift for him.

The lads. Your partner, your brother, your son, your uncle, your pop, your dad. Probably factually the hardest to buy for at Christmas – but don’t quote us on that!

Made-up facts aside, we know we always struggle a little when it comes to buying gifts for them at Christmas time. So what do you get for the man you know and love?

The lads always appreciate some new socks and undies… But they’re presents that have been overdone a little, right? And if you try to ask these blokes what they actually specifically want, you usually get a less-than-ideal response in return.

“I don’t need anything, surprise me,” they say. And while that’s easier said than done, Santa’s elves have come to the rescue in the form of a wee gift guide, making this Christmas easier than years past!

Say sayonara to sucky socks and kia ora to the key to gift-love success!

*These gifts aren’t just for the guys, they could be for anyone! But we reckon any guy would love this bunch.

Is this dapper lad into fashion, accessories or clothing? Make sure you give Barkers, Rodd & Gunn, ZARA, H&M, Amazon, Hallensteins, Industrie and Rembrandt a whirl.
Like reading and the odd bit of couch potato-ing? Try Whitcoulls top 100 list, Paper Plus,  HOYTS or Acquisitions.
Sports fan? He’ll be your fan if you find him something in Stirling Sports, Converse, Foot Locker, Macpac  or Torpedo 7.
Time to sharpen up? Shaver Shop and The Sharing Shed are your friend.
Technologuy? Hey Mi, Sony, The Warehouse, Noel Leeming and Omnitech.
Gaming “geek”? EB Games. ‘Nough said.
The gift of choice? Let him pick what he wants with a Sylvia Park gift card – you can purchase from our customer service desk or at
