I’m sure you all have a man, or a Dad, or even a Grand Dad that has everything and wants nothing this Father's Day season, but maybe, just maybe, he doesn’t know what he needs. Be prepared this June 17 with a few gift ideas that can add just a little splash of class to an already well-dressed man, and a few others that might make you the greatest gift giver ever!
Tiffany & Co: Cuff Him
When you hear the words Tiffany & Co., you probably start thinking about diamonds and pearls, but the legendary retailer also carries essentials for the well-dressed man. Often, it’s the smallest details that count, so please don’t overlook - cuff links! Made of gold, silver, platinum, and even titanium, Tiffany offers a wide range of selection for different tastes and budgets. How about Knot cuff links in 18k gold ($2200), Frank Gehry® Torque cuff links in brushed sterling silver ($325), and the charming Bull and Bear cuff links in sterling silver ($300) For more information, visit tiffany.com
db clay: $$$$ Holder
Every man needs a wallet—it’s an essential part of every man’s wardrobe. Most men opt for a black leather wallet, but there are choices. Designer db clay became a leader in one-of-a-kind eco-friendly wallets for every personality from 1998- 2008. Only 500 highly collectible wallets were produced of each unique design, so you can be sure your man will be proud when he takes it out to spend lots of money…..on you! ($48-$85 or so, and can be purchased online on Ebay)
The Man Purse: Attaché This
This gift idea may not seem that rugged and masculine, but the attaché case, or man purse as it’s affectionately called, has become a staple for business men on the go. So much more than just a laptop case, the Man Purse is the easiest way to get from the house to the car to the office with everything he needs and everything he wants. One of our favorite bags include this appealing
Tumi 'Arrive - McCarren' Crossbody Bag ($275). But, Ii you think he secretly wishes he was more like the adventurous Indiana Jones, you might want to consider the Filson Medium Field Bag ($220). These bags and many more can be found at nordstrom.com
Beer & Wine Home Brewing Kit: Keeps on Giving
Beer…men love it, women know it. So how about getting your special man his own beer brewing kit? Men love hobbies and a hobby that actually results in something that he considers useful is a perfect gift. If beer isn’t really to his taste, you can also find wine making kits and even soda making kits that can be used as a family project. This is a gift that actually keeps giving! (Soda Starter Kits start at $49.99, while the beer and wine kits are $54.99 - $500) For more information, visit homebrewers.com.
Men’s Rings: Bling For Him
Something we are sure men won’t buy for themselves is a ring, and I’m not talking about a piercing! Once again, like with the cuff links, we venture back to the exquisite craftsmen of Tiffany & Co. The first ring that caught our eye is Paloma's Zellige ring with a signature design of bold, geometric shapes in sterling silver ($275), and another is the Century ring in 18k white gold with diamonds ($1,725). Believe it or not men actually like wearing rings, but it’s only acceptable if we can claim it’s a gift and are wearing it out of a sense of obligation to the gift giver.
