5 GIFT IDEAS FOR STYLE-CONSCIOUS MEN
IN NEED OF SOME INSPIRATION? READ ON
Men who take their fashion seriously know perfectly well how hard they are to buy for. There is never any one brand or clothing label you can go to either, because the chances are they already own everything they have on offer, or they’ve moved on to the next big name. Whether you’re a girlfriend in need of some inspiration or a best friend seeking the perfect gift, here are just a handful of ideas that should help your search this year.
Not just any shirt
People often think of getting a shirt for a present, but then they don’t want to appear too straight-laced. For a special birthday or Christmas, you may consider getting some stylish cufflinks. If you really want to blow the guy in question away though, we’d suggest combining the two ideas. After all, there’s no point in buying cufflinks if he doesn’t own a shirt for him to wear them with, so we’d suggest heading to your local tailor and asking what they’d recommend. You also don’t want to get anything too formal, so look at shirts that are more of a fashion focus than business wear.
Guys who care about the way they look will probably invest in a gym membership or sporting club to keep in shape, so it’s a safe bet that sportswear will go down well. Instead of heading to the supermarket or gym store though, there are plenty of great brands nowadays that have branched out into the sports arena, such as Jacamo and H&M for example. Their wide variety of stylish sportswear should definitely raise a smile, and mean they can keep their trendy look going even when they’re burning calories.
Grooming on the go
For the image-conscious, they take a huge amount of pride in their grooming, so why not pick up a bitesize grooming kit for when they’re on the go? They can still have all their favourite products, but in easy-to-store packaging with a toiletry bag to boot. You can find a great selection here at Menkind.
What’s the occasion?
If you’re on the hunt for something a little more expensive for a milestone event, then don’t forget the classic accessories. If you’d like to buy a watch, gunmetal black with a matt finish is very popular at the minute, so this is your best bet if you want to impress.
Buying a suit is a very personal thing; from the measuring process through to the final stitch on a hem, it’s completely designed for that individual. You might not be able to surprise them with a fully made suit, but what about buying a tailoring session for them, with some money already put towards a bespoke suit? If you can’t quite stretch to this though, there are some fantastic men’s suits on the market right now that are both affordable and right on trend.
