The Perfect Gift: Accessories Every Man Should Have

What is considered to be acceptable in men’s fashion has changed a lot over the past couple of generations alone and, while a lot of the staple diet remains the same, a few extra bits have been added. A man’s accessories are what separates him from the rest of mankind, which is why this is a great place to start when considering what gift you should buy the man in your life.

Of course, the range of what’s available is growing at the smart clip, which is where we come in. Below we have highlighted some must-have items that every man would love to have in his wardrobe. You can’t go wrong with any of these, that is a promise.

Watch Out
Every man is different. Some are bolder than others, some are more traditional, some are more contemporary, and other’s don’t put much of an emphasis on fashion. That is where a watch comes in; it is a must-have accessory that every single man can agree on. That is because a timepiece is more than just a statement, it is a tool. The wrong watch can really let down a man. So consider your options, consider the man in question and go from there.

Money Talks
Men tend to get seriously attached to their wallets for the simple fact that they know where everything is. They like their wallet to have a lot of card holders, or to have a zip instead of a button, or to have a window for photos that they can slip their family into. So, if you know your man needs to have a new wallet, we recommend you inspect his current one, make some notes and try and get one that ticks the same boxes.

Just Jewelry
Yes, jewelry has crept into the must-have section of men’s accessories. This was once reserved to a signet ring, but now earrings for men are a huge thing, as are necklaces and bracelets. The great thing about going down this route in terms of gifts is the variety. There is something for everyone, whether they are out there in terms of fashion or relatively conservative in how they dress. So, as a little word of advice, go with your gut on this one. Always go with your gut, but don’t be scared either.

Bag It Up
There was once a time where a man’s staple carry case was a briefcase, but unless the man you are buying for is Harvey from Suits this has somewhat gone out of fashion. Then, on the other end of the scale, you have backpacks, but this should not really be considered. Which leaves you with a messenger bag. This is a real sign of elegance in today’s fashion. The winning point when it comes to a man’s messenger bag, though, is this: it can be worn with anything, from Sunday morning casual to business meeting suit. What’s more, you have a pick of styles, colors, and sizes to choose from, so no limitations on that front.
