Sometimes the guys in our lives need a treat. I’m not just talking about a night off doing the washing up or a takeout pizza kind of treat either, but a high end gift that really lets them know they are appreciated in life. Fortunately, if you are looking for such a gift, you will find the perfect selection of suggestions below.
A silk tie
Most guys have to wear a tie at some point in their life, whether it’s to work each day, to interviews, or formal events. With that in mind, why not elevate your man’s tie game with something a little out of the ordinary.
Yes, that’s right instead of dusting off his old polyester numbers, why not provide him with the opportunity to wear something in crisp, smooth silk instead. Indeed you will find plenty of ties on the market from designer brands such as Gucci, Prada, and Burberry. Also silk ties tend to be cheaper than other options such as socks and pocket squares from the same brand, so all you need to do is find one that fits your budget.
If your man’s jam is looking fly then treating home to some cutting edge designer streetwear will have him smiling ear to ear. Indeed, many of the more exclusive design houses now offer not only sharply cut suits but items with a little more edge as well.
Look out for the ’70s inspired bold and bright pieces in Gucci’s current collection, as well as the striking and irreverent pieces that Palm Angels for men are currently stocking. In particular, their retro-inspired tracksuits provide comfort and style in a single package.
A Smart Watch
A classic timepiece is also a gift that many guys would be delighted to receive. In fact, many of the higher-end watches on the market become treasured family heirlooms passed down from generation to generation.
When deciding which timepiece to invest in there are a few factors to consider. First of all, you will need to consider whether he will be wearing it while performing sports activities such as climbing, skiing, diving, or sailing, as there are watches like the Tag Heuer Aquaracer and the vintage Rolex Oyster which are specifically designed to withstand such purposes.
Also, ask yourself about his personal aesthetic and whether he would want something more understated like the Tag Heuer Monaco or something very obviously high end such as the Bulova Men’s 40mm crystal muti-function watch.
You should also make sure that the whole look is complete by seeing whether he might want some other items of jewelry at the same time too. For instance, it could be an idea to get him a tiger eye bracelet for men as well as the watch in question. That way, you should be able to feel as though you are truly spoiling him.
Headphones can also make an excellent gift for the man in your life, and there are plenty of high-end options to choose from. Probably the most obvious, and often the most coveted are the Apple AirPods Pro. These are wireless headphones that come in their own case-come-charging sleeve, and while super simple and sleek in design, they do really make life easier and live up to the hype.
Alternatively, if you man would prefer something more robust there are a myriad of can style, over-ear headphones to pick from. Beats from Dre are often cited as the most wanted here, but Focal Celeste Over-ear Headphones and SENNHEISER HD 820 Closed-back Headphones will also delight.
Something for the office
If you guy spends his days behind a desk, what better way to elevate his experience than by treating him to something high-end to use at the office. One option here is to go for an all-leather briefcase which will ensure he looks his best even when commuting.
However, if you are looking for a marriage of both style and tech, a digitizer in a fancy case is ideal. A digitizer for those not in the know is an Augmented Paper device that will allow you guys to take notes, write documents and draw diagrams while digitally saving them at the same time. Who knows, such a gadget may even help him stay organised too!
A games console
Next, if you are looking to truly spoil your man, why not get him the gift that keeps on giving – a games console. Indeed, there are many on the market, but if it’s high-end you are looking for the latest offering from Playstation, the PS5 console, priced at around $500 will do just fine.
The good news is that the PS5 boasts super fast loading times and state-of-the-art graphics. Not to mention backward compatibility which means he can still play all those ps4 games anytime he wants.
However, to really make his day treat him to a year-long membership to the PS Plus service as well. This is a service where you get several games free each month, and you get to download and keep them too. Something that means he will always have something to keep him entertained throughout the year!
Some gorgeous luggage
Another gift that spans being both fancy and practical is some high end luggage. Indeed, classy luggage always makes an excellent present because it both enhances an outfit, and ensures whatever is being transported stays intact as well.
Particularly favorites in this category include the classic Louis Vuitton Trunk, the hard shell DIOR and RIMOWA cabin suitcase, and even the elegant leather S.C Holdall in Brown from Bennett Winch.
Some seriously fancy socks
Last of all, if you think that socks are too typical a gift to give the man in your life, think again, as you can really splash out on some stylish and classy footwear.
Indeed, for the rocker in your life, why not invest in a gift pack of Happy Socks Bowie themed footwear, complete with red lightning bolts and vibrant colors, which are sure to cheer up even the most boring of work suits.
Alternatively, for the man about town, a pair of designed socks may be the perfect gift. Fortunately, you won’t have to look too far for such items as design houses like DIOR, Gucci, and Prada offer single pairs of socks from $200- $500. Now if that isn’t a high end gift, I don’t know what is!
