Great Expectations | The Menswear Gift Guide

Fathers Day Menswear Shopping Guide The Beautiful Lens-

Just maybe, if you’re anything like me, you need online help buying gifts for the men in your life. Because the cute ones are kind of hard to buy for sometimes, right?? What is that about? 

To help us all out in this somewhat-impossible task, I’ve put together a special Beautiful Lens MENSWEAR EDITORIAL + GIFT GUIDEjust in time for Father’s Day and I have purposefully tried to include as many local Byron Bay brands and stores as I could because I really believe that it’s important to celebrate local talent.

So, if you haven’t sorted presents yet for this year’s Father’s Day (or birthdays. Or Christmas. Or really – just anytime in the near future that you need to buy for your boyfriend / husband / lover / father / friend / son / man-you-know) this is THE post for you.

Now, no excuses. Get to it! And then tell me what you buy ;)
