Men’s Gift Ideas: Expert Advice on Giving Unique Gifts to Men
Buying gifts for men can certainly present a challenge. Most men probably aren’t clothes horses or interested in receiving decorative gifts for the home. So, then you may consider electronics or sporting equipment, but he probably has very specific preferences and would want to select them himself.
Never fear. There are several unique men’s gift ideas out there, including men’s clothing gifts, which he’ll be sure to enjoy. Better yet, these timeless gifts are perfect for any occasion, be it a birthday, the holidays, Father’s Day or just because.
1. Weekend Bag
If he travels a lot, his old luggage may be beaten up. If he travels rarely, he may not realize he needs luggage until the last minute. Either way, a durable, classic weekend bag, a suit bag or even a laptop case would be a welcome gift. Look for a bag that is small enough to use as a carry-on and features plenty of pockets and storage compartments. Also, finish it off with a colorful luggage tag that will help him pick his bag out of the sea of suitcases on the airport carousel.
Just like luggage, a quality wallet is something every man needs but may not think to buy for himself. For the next special occasion, get him a slim wallet, money clip or front pocket wallet made from premium leather. You can add a personal touch to this gift by adding his monogrammed initials.
A tie is a colorful expression of a man’s wardrobe which injects his personality into his style. So tread lightly when choosing a tie, some men prefer micro patterns to bold geometrics. Your best bet, see what colors he wears most often to gauge his personal preferences. We recommend taking a look at our best selling ties to see what is most popular for the current season.
4. Men’s Sleepwear
Since picking out a suit or other men’s clothing gift may seem more difficult in terms of style and sizing, give the gift of loungewear. We offer several choices when it comes to pajamas, including light cotton and warm flannel. Top it off with a comfortable robe. Choose a soft cotton or terrycloth robe that has some weight to it so he can keep warm during colder months. You can also find a lighter robe that is comfortable in the summer.
5. Clothing Care Tools
Rather than giving him clothing, give him the men’s wardrobe accessories to keep his clothes looking like new. Help him keep his shoes in prime shape with cedar shoes trees and a shoe polish kit. Get him a tie hanger, collar stays or a belt hanger. You could also give him a versatile boar bristle clothes brush that removes lint, smoothes clothes and even works as a shoe horn.
