Men can be notoriously tough to shop for. He might say he doesn't need anything, or that he has no clue what he wants, but deep down, you know he has something in mind. Men appreciate a gift they can use in their daily lives, as well as classy gifts that show you’re willing to invest in them and make them feel special. This holiday season, we have a few suggestions for gifts that combine functionality with a touch of luxury.
What Gifts Do Guys Really Want?
You don’t have to be a mind reader to figure out what he’d like to see under the tree this year. Here at Bradley Gough Diamonds, we have quite a bit of experience in the realm of gift giving. Over the years, we’ve gathered plenty of ideas for gifts that any man would be happy to receive. We put together the following list to provide you with some inspiration for presents any guy would be thrilled to receive.
Luxury Watches for Men
You'll find watches on any gift guide for men–they’re such a classic choice, and for good reason. Very few things combine functionality and aesthetics the way that a fine watch does. Timepieces can accentuate and elevate a man’s style like nothing else. More than just a timekeeping tool, quality watches are statement pieces that reflect his taste and serve as a mark of distinction. Investing in a fine watch is an acknowledgment of a man’s value. What’s more, it shows that you care about improving his life by providing him with an accessory he can use to stay punctual and help manage his time.
Despite their small size, cufflinks pack a powerful punch in the world of men’s fashion. These tiny accessories may seem subtle, but they can seriously enhance a formal outfit and provide a touch of individuality to his dress clothes. High end cufflinks are often made from precious metals, and incorporate gemstones or intricate designs. They add a touch of opulence to any formal shirt, and perform the helpful function of keeping his cuffs perfectly neat and snug. Cufflinks also show that he pays attention to detail and is committed to looking his best. In short, they’re a must-have accessory for any man who cares about his style.
It’s true: plenty of guys like jewelry and would love to receive some as a gift! You can split men’s jewelry into two categories. There is your more traditional men’s jewelry, such as wedding bands, and your newer men’s trends, such as chain necklaces. If you have a fashion-forward man in your life, a gift such as a chain necklace will likely mean a lot to him. Beyond being a thoughtful and luxurious gift, it’s something he can use to express himself and distinguish his style. Investing in a quality men’s chain means investing in a piece of jewelry he can wear for a lifetime.
Engraved jewelry combines practicality with personal sentiment. Investing in a piece of luxury jewelry he can wear for years to come is certain to make him feel special, and adding a heartfelt engraving makes the gift even more touching. Wedding bands are a particularly good option for engraving. The sentimentality of a wedding band, combined with the fact that he wears it every day, means that the message you inscribe will be even more powerful. Choose important dates, initials, or brief messages of love and commitment that he can always carry with him.
What Do I Get A Guy Who Has Everything?
Just because a man says he has everything he needs, it doesn’t mean he has everything he wants. It’s an important distinction, and it means that you have an opportunity to impress him with a luxury gift.
The exclusivity and elegance of a luxury gift is about more than just the item itself. It’s about showing that special man in your life that you’re willing to go above and beyond for him. If the gift marries luxury with practicality, it’ll be extra meaningful.
A man who already has what he needs (or at least claims to) will be even more appreciative of the finer things. He’ll be impressed by the unparalleled quality and craftsmanship of a fine watch or a piece of brand new fine jewelry, and he’ll especially love the fact that it will last him many, many years.
How Do I Personalize A Gift For A Guy?
Custom engraving and custom jewelry are two fantastic ways to personalize a luxury gift for a special man in your life.
As we discussed above, custom engraving allows you to write a message specifically tailored to the gift recipient. It’s a great way to share a long-held sentiment, provide encouragement, or symbolize commitment. Quotes, initials, names and important dates all make for beautiful engravings.
Custom jewelry is another way to individualize a gift. The custom jewelry process involves working with a skilled jeweler to create a one-and-only piece meant just for your man. You may want to customize a new wedding band for him–custom men’s wedding bands are a very common request–but with more men than ever wearing jewelry these days, you could also opt for a necklace, bracelet or anything else you think he might like! Custom jewelry can also be engraved, so you could combine a personalized design with a personalized engraving for a truly unique gift.
A well-crafted pen can transform a simple, everyday task into a pleasure. Pens are a symbol of refinement and intellect, whether they’re used in a personal or professional setting. The feeling of writing with a luxury pen is noticeably better than the feeling of writing with your average pen. Well designed components and fine inks make for a smooth and seamless writing experience. With a luxury pen, his words will flow like never before.
