Much as they don’t like to admit it, men are as thrilled by surprises as women are. They love it when people think about what they might like, weigh up the options, and come back with something that suits them utterly … all without them saying a word. How can they resist! Ignore those protestations that he will always use socks, boxers, ties and cologne, and get him something that makes him feel special this Christmas. Whether you are searching for a gift for your boyfriend, husband, son, father or brother this Christmas, there are some great new men’s jewelry ideas in store this year. We take a look at the highlights.
We have several sections with gifts that have been hand-selected for different relationships. On the male side of the equation, we have gift ideas for boyfriends, husbands, sons, fathers, and the all-encompassing ‘him’! The Citizen Automatic Skeleton Dial watch at the beginning comes from the Boyfriend’s gifts section – if you’ve just got together, why not give him something that will make him think of you every day? Besides, if you read the product name too fast, who wouldn’t want to have an ‘automatic skeleton’? Sounds like a luxury to me! The watch is 100m water resistant and comes with a 3 year warranty and free shipping. The price you’ll see is over $100 less than the recommended retail – bargain!
From the Gift Ideas for Husbands section comes the Rochet Hyperion pendant at right. Your husband will already have a ring or two, he’ll already have plenty of watches … but if he’s over 40 or so, he may not be as used to the idea of men’s jewelry as interesting items like pendants and bracelets. This is masculine, but breaks out of the rut of the ordinary for him. It’s made of stainless steel, comes with its own rubber cord and ships for free.
The Gift Ideas for Sons section is home to the Emporio Armani watch at right. If your son is on the young side, from around high school age to his early thirties, he may not have had the time or extra cash to buy good quality things for himself. Christmas is a great time to build his collection! The Armani watch is in the most classic style and is wearable anywhere. It is splash resistant and stainless steel tough, and ships for free.
Many Dads in this era (like many older husbands) aren’t used to the idea of men’s jewelry being anything other than wedding rings, and single earrings for male pirates! This stainless steel ID bracelet is a lovely traditional way to change his mind about men’s jewelry. It is solid and steady, with a brushed matte finish and thick linkages. You can engrave a message to him on the front, back or both.
Almost every guy has owned (or yearned for) a Swiss Army knife at some stage in their life! Wenger is the maker of the classic Swiss Army knife, and has extended their range to ultra-tough, survival oriented watches. This watch has modern orange accents on the black color scheme, a chronograph, date indicator, rotating bezel and mineral crystal glass. It’s a luxury item, but will last forever … probably longer than we ourselves will!
If you like the idea of giving a stylish, evening wear sort of jewelry gift to one of the men in your life this Christmas, Hot Diamonds is the range to start searching in. Every one of their silver pieces is sleek and immaculate, including these formal, classical Icicle cufflinks with mother of pearl inserts. They are 18mm wide and 9mm high, and also feature a genuine brilliant cut white diamond in the face of each link.
The Inori range of jewelry is growing in popularity with contemporary style men who have a sense of humor and oddity, and aren’t afraid of their emotions. The clock style pendant at right has the semi-circular cutaway because it is a ‘his and hers’ design, with a gold tone stainless steel ladies piece made to fit into the slot. Aww! A beautiful romantic gift – even suitable for your Dad, when you buy the matching gold piece for your mother for Christmas also.
Titanium rings are a relatively new jewelry phenomenon, and awesome as unisex gifts. The triple lunar ring at right though is made specifically for men, with the very high profile and bold styling. One of the best things about it is that it is customizable! You can choose blue, purple or natural color grooves, different widths, different finishes, add gemstones and choose their settings, as well as engrave a personal message inside. Fun for the giver as well as receiver!
Men’s jewelry has come so far in the last thirty years, it’s amazing. Go check out the range and give him something that won’t just get smelly and full of holes for Christmas!
