Expert gift-givers know that there is no one-size-fits-all, perfect gift for the man in your life. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of ideas to help you find the right present for your favourite guy! From gadgets to clothing and everything in between, this guide has it all. Check out our suggestions below and see if anything sparks an idea for what he might like.
Watches: Watches always make great gifts for men because they love knowing what time it is (and who doesn’t?). You could even get him an engraved or personalized gift box with his initials on them if he’s not too particular about his type! With most watches priced at around the $200 mark, they are a gift that will last for years to come. Although there is nothing wrong with getting him something more expensive like an Omega or Rolex, it might be wise to start your search by looking for brands he already wears and styles he likes so you can get the perfect gift without spending too much money on just guessing what his taste may be.
Shoeshine kit. You may not think this would make an ideal present on its own unless you know his shoe size, favourite colours or style preferences already (and even then it could still be difficult), but what about pairing it up with a nice, new pair of shoelaces?
A tie. Ties are generally inexpensive and make a great gift for any occasion – whether he’s recently started a new job or you’re celebrating his birthday (or even Father’s Day). Dress up that simple necktie with an accessory like cuff links to elevate its classiness level!
Cufflinks: If you and your partner are sitting on opposite sides of the spectrum when it comes to dress codes, you’ll want to find a pair that can be worn in both workplace environments.
A nice pen. You can never go wrong with a gift card, but sometimes it feels nicer to give someone something tangible that they’ll be able to use day in and day out. If your special man is an executive who’s constantly signing things or taking notes, then this might be the perfect gift for him!
Fountain pens are known by many as being the most elegant type of pen on the market today – even if he’s not an artsy person himself. With one of these gorgeous pieces of writing equipment sitting on his desk at work all week long, you know he’ll feel like royalty when he uses it. A good quality fountain pen is perfect for someone who spends most of their time signing papers or taking notes.
A leather wallet. If the man on your list is a busy man, then he’ll need something to keep all his cards and cash in! And what better way to do that than with stylish bi-fold wallets? You can find them made from everything these days – like exotic skins (such as crocodile!) for those looking for an investment piece, or more affordable materials such as faux suede if you’re not sure how much use it will get but still want him to have some style when he’s out running errands.
There are so many different styles and colours available today that men don’t even have to be picky about what type they want anymore. If your guy wants something with a little more of an edge, check out the “rugged” styles that are made from animal skins like crocodile or alligator and other exotic skins – these wallets will be totally unique!
Cologne/perfume can also make great gifts because it adds another layer of fragrance as well as makes a statement about your guy’s personal style. If he is a sporty type of person, then you might want to pick something with an earthy or woodsy scent such as cedarwood and lavender, which will probably last for longer than some other men’s scents would due to the higher concentration of oils in it.
