Unlike a lot of women (me included), men do not like to shop for themselves all year round and will rarely splurge out on something personal. When buying your loved one a gift this Christmas why not think out of the box and sway away from the usual jumper and socks and present him with something he would never buy for himself.
Here’s a list of slightly more unique and original gifts for your man this Christmas.
The Time Keeper
What better gift to give someone who likes to be on time than a watch? Many people ask why spend that bit extra on a luxury watch? There are countless reasons I could give you, but primarily a luxury watch is an investment; a timeless (see what I did there) gift that can be passed down from generation to generation. Unlike standard watches, a luxury watch will be high quality, having been crafted by a renowned maker, with a long history and good track record. This Longines, for example, will have taken between 10 months and 2 years to make. Why not make his Christmas and buy him an impressive wrist watch from our stunning selection.
The Newcastle Brown Ale Drinker
Now we couldn’t be a Newcastle based business without promoting the local ale could we? Why not let your special man drink his favourite ale in style and buy him this antique Georgian Newcastle sterling silver pint mug by renowned Newcastle Silversmith Thomas Makepeace I. This 1732 pint mug is in excellent condition and would make for very happy beer drinking. The pictured Georgian Newcastle silver mug would also be perfect for those who only indulge in half a pint!
The Cigar Smoker
This vintage smoking compendium is the perfect present if your man is a cigar or cheroot smoker. The compendium includes two large cigar boxes, one on either side of a detachable cigar/cheroot cutter, in addition to an integrated match receiver. Wouldn’t this gift be the perfect accessory to his office or home, and make one of his pleasurable past times that extra bit special?
The Black Tie Man
Whether he wears a suit to work or just on special occasions, cufflinks are the perfect gift for any man. This timeless piece of men’s jewellery will be cherished forever. The pictured 18ct yellow gold pair is my chosen one this Christmas; the simplicity of the style allows your man to wear them on any occasion without having to worry about them matching the rest of his suit. If you are looking for something with a bit more sparkle this Christmas then have a browse of our fine collection on cufflinks, where I’m sure you’ll find something that inspires you.
Last but not least, what is the best present if your loved one is a romantic at heart? This pair of three light candelabra is what springs to mind instantly for me. Enjoy candlelight dinners or simply have them burning whilst you snuggle in together to watch your favourite nostalgic movie – wherever and whenever you choose to use candle light, these candelabra make the perfect gift for a romantic man. I mean what’s more intimate than candlelight?
I hope I have helped you decide what to buy the lucky gentleman in your life. If you’re struggling with what to get the ladies in your life, have a look at our previous blog.
