Whether you are married or just dating, finding a classy gift for a guy can sometimes be challenging, as you feel there are two obstacles: he already has everything, or you worry he won't like your gift. Your first step to success is accepting the fact that everyone appreciates a well-thought gift. And your next step is to get creative and plan ahead; many classy gifts are personalised and thus require additional time to prepare.
Personalised glassware always will be a classy gift for any guy. This is especially true when you select glassware to his specific taste. For example, have his initials etched on beautiful stemware for his "after five" martini or on a large glass mug if he prefers beer. You can also expand your gift to include a full bar set with tumblers, double old fashioned or highball glasses and a matching ice bucket---all sporting his initials. This gift is sure to please him, as it made Vogue magazine's list of the 10 most wanted gifts for him.
Or if you want a different approach, replace his initials with his family crest. This is a great way for you to honour your guy as well as his family name. Some sites that offer these products include: coatofarms.com, historicalnames.com and finalcut.com.
According to greatpressies.com, cuff links are an ideal gift to help your guy complete his professional look. You can find a variety of styles and price points, making this gift idea that fits nearly all budgets. One tip to remember when shopping is to recall if your guy has a metal preference so that your purchase coordinates with his other jewellery, glasses or watch. You can also personalise this purchase with his initials or just the first letter of his last name. Regardless of what you select, cuff links last a lifetime and are classic men's accessories that never go out of style. But best of all, your guy is sure to think of you every time he wears your gift.
A High-End Pen
According to askmen.com's list of 20 gadgets men want, "A well-crafted and stylish pen will always leave a lasting impression." Giving a man an exquisite luxury pen or pen and pencil set helps set him apart in business meetings with a lasting, professional look. It can also impress prospective clients as they will notice and naturally assume your man is the classy executive you know him to be. High-end designs include beautiful wood, lacquered enamel and even precious metal such as sterling silver or gold. And depending on your selection, you may be able to personalise your purchase with his full name or initials.
