2011 Gift Guide: For Gentlemen
Dec 8, 2011
I always struggle to find gifts for guys. They’re so tough to shop for because most guys are happy with a simple, quality gift. So let’s oblige them, shall we?
Mulberry Clover Cufflinks ($130). Cufflinks are a timeless gift for the professional man. These silver clovers by English clothier Mulberry are the perfect mix of whimsy and elegance. For the more politically minded, you can find them in Democrat and Republican themes.
Brooks Brothers Lambswool Scarf ($60). A warm, classic scarf is perfect for the fashion forward man (or the man who needs a small boost in the fashion forward department). This striped scarf is neutral enough to match any overcoat, and bridges the gap between casual and dressy.
Laphroaig Quarter Cask Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky ($36). I’m told that for under $50, this is an excellent scotch. I’m also told that if you want something extra special the Laphroaig aged 18 years is especially good ($80).
Belkin Low-Profile USB Charger ($5). Does the man in your life own an iPhone, iPad or other USB charged device? Then, you need this car charger. It’s great for long car trips and perfect for frequent talkers.
As for other gifts, most of the gentlemen I know are obsessed with leather goods from an American company called Col. Littleton. The items are a bit pricey, but they’re well-crafted and perfect for Dads.
If you have any ideas for other gifts for boyfriends, husbands, brothers or Dads, leave them in the comments. I’m a bit out of practice buying for men as my Father only wants antiques and my Brother only wants ammunition.
