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.

Depending on the designer and material, a well-made briefcase can easily cost £1,300.
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.

Have the watch engraved on the back with his birth date and a special message.
