If you’re like me–or like anyone, really–you probably struggle to find the perfect gifts for the men in your life. You’ve bought expensive watches, a new grill, power tools–you’ve checked all typical boxes for the typical gifts. What’s left after you’ve worked your way through the classic list of manly presents? Below, I have compiled a shortlist of elegant luxury items to overturn any gift-hump. This list brings together the leisurely, the creative, and the downright opulent.
I love beautiful pens as a gift option, because there is so much variety in terms of quality, style and price. Not to mention, any man can appreciate their utilitarian aspects. I am personally a fan of the elegance of a fountain pen. S.T. Dupont offers several beautiful finishes, as well as other pen styles. Though you’ll shell out a pretty penny for one of these, it’s well worth the unparalleled craftsmanship. You can check out their selection here.
For the Motorcyclist
I love the idea of motorcycle accoutrements as a gift. Of course, maybe you have to buy a motorcycle first, but if the man in your life already has one, motorcycle helmets are a cool gift with styles ranging from sleek and modern to vintage. Say your man already has a motorcycle helmet, then try a classy bag for him to tote the helmet to and from work in style. This leather Tinct bag is a great option–both opulent and classic. Check it out here.
More than likely, the men in your life are into cars. Probably really fast, exotic ones. Maybe a Lambo isn’t exactly in your budget, maybe a day at Xtreme Xperience. The concept is simple: pay by for laps around the racetrack in the car of your dreams. They offer several luxury cars, including Aston Martins, Porsches, and Lamborghinis. Check out their website here for pricing and packages.
Who knew this was something you could buy? I didn’t, but it seems ultra-bougie. If you’re tired of purchasing luxury watches, maybe consider this handy gadget for your man’s extravagant watch collection. These watch winders keep the tension in the watches correct so that they operate correctly. Amazing watch winders come in a variety of bespoke models. Not only are these watch winders incredibly elegant, they double as safes, with bulletproof glass outfits. As if this all wasn’t opulent enough, your man can control each individual motor from his smartphone. Visit their website for more information on models.
I hope this list has been helpful in suggesting some more unconventional luxury gifts. Though some of these things are definitely out of my own price range, many of these categories have offerings at varying price ranges. More than anything, this list should serve as a springboard from which you can plan a more personalized gift for your loved ones. Despite the allure of over-the-top bougie items, the price tag means very little if the recipient of the gift will put it on a shelf to gather dust.
