A Hume Men’s Christmas Gift Guide


Christmas Present

Very often women regard Christmas as an opportunity to re-style men, to mould them like their very own Ken-doll. They appraise their husbands, sons and boyfriends critically and pass insensitive judgements like, ‘That shirt’s seen better days,’ or, ‘I think you need to make more of an effort,’ oblivious to the hurt and plunging self-esteem.


Beloved jumpers, dear old friends, begin to disappear from drawers. Then on second glance, the dog basket looks plusher, cosier and the dog rather smug, nestled on a bed of….wait, a minute; and then, the penny drops. Your favourite weekend lambswool has become a home for a hound. And nobody asked you – no one consulted you about this raid on all you hold dear.


If you dare to question the marauder you’ll likely encounter a chilly indifference to your pain. The woman in question is operating in the firm belief that it’s all for your own good. She’s got plans. She’s moved into gifting gear and she’s making way for new acquisitions.


Now this can go one of two ways: in her quest your mother, wife, girlfriend comes across the A Hume Men’s Gift Guide. Phew. Sigh of relief. Happy Christmas. Or, she flounders around in a world of sartorial delusion and you end up with a Crimbo howler like Colin Firth in Bridgette Jones.


So spare us all, select your picks from the 3 looks below and send this on. Now.
