Coming up with gift ideas can be difficult, and it can be especially tricky to find the perfect present for the men in your life. Whether it is your husband or boyfriend or a family member or friend, getting it right can be a real challenge. However, a lot of modern guys are now just as into clothes and styling as women are, so if the man in your life is something of a snappy dresser, coming up with the ideal gift could be easier than you think. Here are some top ideas for treating a fashion conscious guy:
Unless you are dealing with someone who lives in jeans and t-shirts, you can’t really go wrong with a good quality, perhaps designer shirt in his size and style. Most shirts are sold by neck size, so you may need to do some detective work to make sure you get the correct size, but some brands do retail in the far easier to guess Small, Medium, Large type sizes. Have a look at the brands, styles and colors he wears and buy something that truly fits with his taste, and he will appreciate the thought and understanding you put in. The gift should be something he will love, not something you want to see him in, so be guided by his individual taste and style, not your own, and you can’t go wrong.
A lot of men wear fragrances now, and there are countless different ones on the market by all sorts of designers and even celebrities. If you know he likes a certain fragrance and wears it all the time, consider a gift set which will contain other fragranced products like body washes or shaving products, and which can work out cheaper than buying a big bottle of a designer scent, especially if you know he already has some. Otherwise, try out a few different and popular ones in store and if in doubt ask the sales staff for advice, they will know what is in fashion at a given point in time and will be able to choose something that suits his lifestyle, whether he is smart and corporate or sporty and active.
Classic gifts like ties may seem a little old fashioned, but if the man you are buying for wears a tie to work then a beautiful and luxurious silk tie could be a great gift. Similarly, scarves can go down well in winter, particularly if they are made of expensive top end materials such as cashmere, as can leather gloves. For smartly dressed men, cufflinks can be a good option, and come in all sorts of eye catching or subtle designs at all different price points (from cheap fashion ones from high street retailers to luxury brands like Tiffany’s). Tie pins can also be a nice choice for a man who lives in a suit.
If you understand your guy’s taste then finding something he will love shouldn’t be too hard, but if you are unsure, simply have a look at the brands he wears and talk to the advisers in store, who will be happy to show you some different pieces and help match the gift to the man.
