If your husband is anything like mine, he may have a wardrobe quite full of clothes, but has about three different shirts, jumpers and pairs of pants that he wears religiously until they fall apart … only to be replaced by another pair nearly exactly the same. And when he goes to replace them, he’ll moan that the store doesn’t carry ‘his’ pants any more! If you have a hot and handsome husband that you’d like to see in a different light now and again, why not use jewelry to accentuate his favorite outfits? There is an enormous range of men’s jewelry, from the sensible to the sensuous, the charismatic to the clean-lined. Here are our picks of the bunch for August birthdays!
We actually have a dedicated section for gift ideas for husbands, born out of years of helping frustrated or inspired wives to find the exact piece to best highlight his baby blues, rugged chest or strong hands. There are around 160 products in here, and you can narrow the results using the product finder box, which is in blue near the top of the screen. You’ll find tabs to refine your results by price, style, gemstones, length and brand, as well as by base metal. You’ll see some of our more popular products from this section at the beginning of the article and above – at the top is the men’s stainless steel id bracelet, made simply and solidly. The band is interwoven links of stainless steel, so is suitable for sensitive or acidic skins. You can engrave messages on both the front and the back – perhaps your kids’ names as well as your name, or even a personal message on the back, and his own name on the front. We keep these in stock, as they are quite a popular item, so if you have left the gift-finding to the last minute, don’t despair! It will probably be there in the nick of time . These will also ship for free across Australia, with every other product you buy from the range also! There is an alternative, more slimline and also more budget-friendly piece just above.
If you would like to personalize your gift to your husband (and why not?!!), an easy way to get some hints about the types of jewelry that will be best suited to him is to go by his starsign. Much easier than going down to the pub and quizzing his mates! If he is born from the 1st to the 22nd of August, he is a Leo – usually very creative, dramatic, outgoing and generous. Men born after the 23rd of August are Virgos, and they are often quite methodical and precise, as well discreet and observant. The titanium bracelet above would be a great gift for a Leo husband – it is rare to find a bracelet that is not perfectly symmetrical, and this one executes the creativity and individuality with grace and flair. It is reasonably short, which means that you can steal it if he is not looking in the morning (!), but also means that if he has especially large wrists, this won’t be suitable. It is made of titanium and is very durable, as well as having that distinctive fine finish.
Another awesome choice for Leo men is this Rochet brand bracelet. It is one of the more colorful pieces in the men’s jewelry range (although I realize it is nothing like the ‘colorful’ you will find among the ladies’ jewelry!). It is made from stainless steel, along with techno gold and black rubber, for an individual feel and texture as well as an individual color profile. It is 23cm long, good for larger wrists. Like most pieces of men’s jewelry, and from the Rochet range, this is quite budget friendly, and you could afford to get a matching piece from the set, like the cross pendant with black rubber and techno gold that is pictured below. There are also stainless steel and techno gold cufflinks available, for the modern office-bound Leo man.
Another winner with your Leo husband will be these black design cubic zirconia cufflinks. They are made form stainless steel, and the modern, striking design will appeal to your creative and outgoing Leo husband. They are 1.5 cm across, and also feature free shipping … along with everything else that you order with them, so stock up for next birthday, while you are at it!
However, if you are married to a Virgo, then precision and discretion will be the name of the game in your birthday gift hunt this August. Citizen watches are excellent examples of both of these values – they are known world-wide for creating solidly built and ultra-precise watches. The one below will be great for your Virgo mate – it is water resistant to 100m, and features a push button buckle for ease of taking it on and off. There is also a timer function, so he can have you stand on the sidelines cheering him on to break his record – and timing how well he is doing, too!
This Fossil watch is a more fashionable alternative for your Virgo husband, but still quite modest and discreet in its styling. It has quartz movement and is water resistant to 50m, and comes with a 2 year manufacturers warranty, but the most endearing feature of this watch for your Virgo husband is likely to be the rare glimpse that it affords you into the inner workings of the watch. Watchmaking is one of the world’s most precise and methodical professions, and no doubt it would be your husband’s second choice, after whatever he is doing for work right now! A gorgeous and individual piece.
And if your Virgo husband already has a watch that is perfectly good, thank you very much (!), then why not try something a little more decorative, like this Hot diamonds brand name bracelet. It is made from sterling silver and features two very discreetly placed brilliant cut white diamonds, in the ends of the bracelet. Its slimline design is modest and precise, just like your man, and despite the inclusion of two gorgeous diamonds, is very reasonably priced. You’ll also get free shipping with this product, and the rest of your order – bonus!
But if your precise Virgo husband has a precise idea of what he likes, or if your creative Leo man already has some of these creative ideas, then keep browsing in our gift ideas for husbands section – you are sure to find the perfect gift for him this August.
