Contrary to popular belief, women aren't the only ones who appreciate leather goods, jewelery pieces and lavish toiletries. According to the London Financial Times and consulting giant Bain & Co., luxury sales increased 12 per cent in the past year, with male fashion fuelling a significant chunk of this unexpected growth. Personal and fashion accessories were the most popular among male consumers, making a luxury item an excellent birthday gift for the stylish and sophisticated man in your life.

Briefcase

A luxury briefcase is like a designer purse, with detailed quality, durability and a stunning appearance. Designer briefcases come in a variety of materials, sizes and styles, from alligator to calf skin. Consider the profession and personality of the recipient before deciding on a briefcase. A man who works for a conservative Wall Street firm, for example, might appreciate a more classic style and colour over a mustard yellow alligator skin briefcase. Depending on the designer and material, a well-made briefcase can easily cost £1,300.

Skin Care

Regardless of what he says to friends, most men enjoy some facial pampering. The explosion of men's skin care products makes finding a good luxury gift easy. Before delving into hundreds of dollars of products, consider whether the recipient would most enjoy an anti-ageing serum, a daily moisturiser or a skin-exfoliating facial scrub. If you still can't decide, many high-end department stores sell starter kits of luxury skin care products specifically for men.

Watch

Nothing says happy birthday like an engraved watch from a luxury jeweller. Most men own a watch, but a well-crafted designer accessory adds sophistication to any man's wardrobe. The wristband of high-quality leather should be either brown or black. Choose a stainless steel face and back for utilitarian elegance, or gold for a more fanciful, but still masculine, flair. Have the watch engraved on the back with his birth date and a special message.
