Classic gift ideas to surprise you man with

We all know how difficult shopping for men’s presents can be, especially if you are looking for something that is both trendy and functional that will delight the receiver and that he will find useful. Sometimes it can be hard to find a gift for your husband or father, let alone a stranger whose taste, style, and hobbies you are unaware of. If you have already searched through all https://www.pinterest.com/ pages for inspiration and all you can find are personalized t-shirts and funny socks, here are a few tips for simple, classic presents that will never go out of style and that any gentlemen would appreciate:


Nowadays, it is time to let go of the idea that men shouldn’t wear jewelry. To begin with, at the beginning of time these accessories were designed specifically for men, who wore them to show the world their wealth and high social status. These days, jewelry is much more affordable and it can be worn by gentlemen to show their great taste in terms of style. A very meaningful gift, it might not be the most appropriate choice for people who you don’t know too well, but be sure that your boyfriend, fiance, husband, or brother will appreciate a piece of jewelry made of silver, gold, or any other material of your choice.


If you know the person well enough and you are sure in his style choices, consider buying a sweater made of qualitative wool that will not only be a beautiful addition to his wardrobe, but will also last a long time. It can be a plain, classic sweater, or a more interesting one. For example, an Aran sweater is an item that is highly appreciated not only by the Irish, who created it in the first place but also by many male celebrities all over the world. These days such sweaters are soft and comfortable, made of Merino wool, which is the best fabric for such pieces, and the best part is the traditional stitches, that have a rich background and can make any outfit stand out from the crowd. Celtic online stores such as Tara Irish clothing  provides an extensive range of men’s Irish wool sweaters that will make the perfect gift for a gentleman.


Sunglasses are a perfect present for every time of the year: they are clearly in high demand during summer, but few people realize that the UV rays are harsher and much more harmful during the winter. Consider this, particularly if the man you’re shopping for is a driver: wearing sunglasses while driving is a must during the snowy winter months. Get the gentlemen a pair of traditional, high-quality sunglasses that will suit him perfectly and that he will wear all year long to protect his eyes. If you’re not sure what shape to choose, go with the classic Aviators- they are perfect for any face shape and can be worn with any outfit you can think of.

Leather bag

A nice, roomy, high-grade leather bag is a must-have in every gentleman’s wardrobe. It is indeed a present more on the costly side, but if you can afford to pay the price, and particularly if you plan on buying one for a gentleman that you are close with, you can be sure that a leather bag will be worth the money. As with most leather goods, the great part about this bag is that the older it gets, the more stylish it looks. Another advantage is how roomy and practical it is since it can be used for carrying everything a man might need, regardless of his occupation or lifestyle.


Gloves are another timeless gift that any man needs, even if they might think that their fashion preferences are incompatible with such an out-of-style, at the first sight, item. If you know the gentleman well,  get him a pair of gloves that would go well with his wardrobe. However,  if you don’t know anything about his taste in terms of style, buy a pair of classic leather gloves. They are not as pricey as other leather pieces, but just as useful and necessary. Black, grey, or navy colors are the go-to choice.


Finally, if you’re looking for a gift for a gentleman who enjoys reading in his spare time, a book might be the ideal choice. You can’t go wrong with this present, whether it is a hundred-year-old version of a novel that you have found in an antique store, the most recent publication of his beloved financial advisor, or, why not, your favorite book, if you are close enough. Just like Joseph Addison said, Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.
