There are lots of reasons why men are notoriously difficult to buy for: Some of them buy what they want when they want it. Some of them collect things that are far too specialized or personal for someone to purchase on their behalf (think collectible baseball cards or an aged bourbon). And then there are the guys who would rather spend their money on others than indulge themselves.
But there’s always an excuse to treat the ones we love, even the ones who are most difficult to shop for. So here are a few suggestions:
In an age of digital everything, an analog timepiece remains a classic men’s accessory. Whether it’s a sporty Tag Heuer, a traditional Rolex, or rugged Tudor timepiece, a traditional watch adds a bit of gravitas as well as a personal touch to any outfit.
For an indulgent gift that’s also useful, a money clip is a great idea. Whether you choose sterling, gold, or even leather, you can add a monogram for a personal touch. He’ll think of you each time he reaches for cash or empties his pockets at night.
Another personalized gift option, a signet ring always feels like it comes with a bit of history. Not only are they definitely a bit old school, they practically beg to be handed down through generations. Size it to be worn on the ring finger or size it a little smaller for him to wear on his pinky instead.
In a sea of “casual Fridays,” a man in French cuffs always stands apart. And nothing sets off those crisp white cuffs better than a unique pair of cufflinks. From a simple monogrammed oval of silver to a subtle crimson-and-white declaration of team loyalty, cufflinks can add a punch of personality to even the stuffiest of suits. From classic to whimsical, to custom designed you can find the perfect cufflinks and Bromberg’s
Want to give something that will be used virtually every day? Consider a fine pen. From a simple ballpoint to an extravagant fountain pen, you can select the one that suits his personality and his writing needs. You can choose the heft of a Willam Henry pen or a sleeker like option such as a Faber Castell, or go for a pen-and-pencil set to cover all the bases.
Small, indulgent gifts like these are things most guys wouldn’t think to buy for themselves, but most men will appreciate these useful gifts beyond the warm thoughts behind them.
