Kenny Ho reveals the perfect Christmas stockings

Whether you're a celebrity or a wannabe, you only need to consider three types of stockings

Every year, millions find it increasingly difficult to fill the Christmas stockings with original and wanted presents. This year, to make life easier, Kenny Ho, the UK's top celebrity stylist and male grooming expert, Gillette, reveal that no matter who you are buying for there are only three types of stocking that you need to consider.

Kenny Ho, stylist to celebrities such as Geri Halliwell, Westlife, Pierce Brosnan and David Beckham, says ' If you break it down to the barest essentials, men will fit into three types of category - 'sporty guy', 'playboy guy' or the 'lad by day, yours by night' guy. So, whomever you're buying for, your perfect partner, brother or Dad, will fit into one of these categories and once you know the type of man, you simply select the type of stocking that fits."

To find out what type of stocking you need to be looking for this Christmas, simply answer the three questions below on behalf of who you are buying for:

Q1) If the man you are buying for is a football fan would he rather be: a) playing it, b) in the corporate/VIP box at the game or c) in amongst the die-hard fans on the terraces

Q2) If the man you are buying for is offered a Martini would he most likely: a) give it a go, b) ask for it to be shaken, not stirred or c) ask for it in a pint glass

Q3) If the man you are buying for is asked to sing in front of a 100,000 crowd would he: a) prefer to sing karaoke to a select crowd, b) prefer to perform undercover or c) be up on the stage in a flash, strutting his funky stuff

Every 'a' answer scores 10, every 'b' scores 8 and every 'c' scores 6. If he scores between 27-30, go for stocking 1, between 22-26, stocking 2 and 18-21 stocking 3.

Stocking 1) ideal for the 'sporty' man so go for football gear like a top of the range pair of football boots, or his favourite kit. However, he still wants to look and smell good, so a Gillette Series Body Fresh Gift Pack and a pair of trendy sunglasses will always go down well.

Stocking 2) ideal for the man who thinks he's a bit of a playboy. Gadgets are the type of gifts that get his pulses racing but also consider adrenaline-pumping activities like a day racing around Silverstone in a classic DB5. A classy drinks set would also go down well and the MACH3/Gillette Series Travel Bag is a must have to make sure when he's on the move he's travelling with style.

Stocking 3) ideal for the man who is a bit of lad by day but 100% yours at night. He wants gifts that appeal to his spontaneous nature, perhaps a weekend trip to Las Vegas? But he still needs to keep up his appearance so a MACH3/Gillette Series 2 Piece Shave Pack is perfect to maintain his cool image. He also looks for presents that appeal to his more sensitive side, a DVD of the classic 1950's film 'High Society' or a compilation CD of Sinatra's best tunes is sure to do the trick.

"The six Christmas Grooming Packs we have designed incorporate the advanced triple bladed MACH3 razor and premium Gillette Series products at affordable prices. Regardless of your choice of stocking, Gillette Christmas Gift Packs will make an ideal gift that will be well received by any man." says Lorraine Brown, Male Gifting Business Manager, Gillette.

So whether your man is a wannabe Beckham, Brosnan or Williams, Gillette Gift Packs and Kenny Ho have your stocking nightmares wrapped up this Christmas.
