Who is more difficult to shop for – men or women? Year after year this debate continues, but for those who vote men, fear not. We know that Christmas is less than seven days away and we’re here to help you find the best gifts for the males in your life. Here is our Top Seven List of the most popular men’s gifts.
Time pieces are always an excellent gift option as they are both functional and decorative. As an accessory, watches can be worn to complement outfits and today’s smart watches have revolutionised their use with more functions than we could list. The options of colour, style, functions and features are limitless, so you are sure to find one which he will absolutely love.
Boxed Tie Sets
Ties add a distinguished appearance to a man’s outfit. Most ties can be worn with multiple shirt and pants combinations, whether he is going to work or attending an event. For that very special occasion, a boxed-set, complete with cufflinks and handkerchief, makes the perfect “stocking stuffer”.
Do your part in helping him protect what is most important – his cash and cards. Give him a sturdy long–lasting leather wallet. These wallets come in various colours and designs, and your choice should have adequate space to accommodate his bank and identification cards, as well as coins.
Designer Leather Shoes
Women do not have a monopoly on loving designer shoes. Though some may never admit it, men too are lovers of designer shoes and many have a vast shoe collection to prove it. They take great pride in their appearance and you can put a smile on his face and spring in his step, by gifting him the right footwear.
Belts are yet another accessory which is a popular gift option. Some will argue that a man’s belt should match his shoes and if he has shoes in many different colours, he will definitely need the belts to abide by this rule. Just be sure that whichever stylish belt you choose, it is the right length to match his waist size.
Socks, Boxers and Briefs
Gone are the days where men only wore plain dark-coloured socks. Bright, bold, colourful patterns are now the order of the day for men of all ages. Get him a pair of socks for every day of the week and while you’re at it, pick up some boxers or briefs that will offer him all the support he needs. But when you’re undergarment shopping for him just remember this: size matters.
Most men love to add a dash of cologne to complete their outfit before stepping out. Think about his personality and choose a fragrance you both can appreciate which will captivate the olfactory senses of everyone he meets. Colognes are often sold as gift sets which may include a body lotion, body wash or shampoo, another fantastic “stocking stuffer”.
