In this post I cover 5 Timeless Christmas Gifts for the Sophisticated Gentleman. The idea behind this list is to get high quality items that last for men who appreciate nice things.
Many of these items can still be bought in person for you last minute shoppers.
1. Time Piece
A good watch is a solid gift that will last for years to come and can be passed down to future generations. Name brands don't necessarily matter, although it does help. Look for something that never goes out of style like a linked, leather or metallic band. Black and deep blue dials are timeless and look good with just about anything.
Keep it classy, not flashy.
Make sure the size of the dial matches the wrist size of whoever you're giving the watch to. If the guy has a smaller frame go with a smaller dial. If he has a bigger frame go with the larger dial. Pick something that matches the body frame of the person you're shopping for.
2. Precious Metals
Precious metals are a great gift to give to a man preparing for his future. PMs are a tangible asset and timeless. This is a good gift for the hard to buy for guy. They also look a hell of a lot cooler than plastic gift cards.
In this example, I recommend a 10 oz bar of silver. Gold is also a great option.
3. Crystal Glasses
Quality glassware is an item that will always be appreciated and compliments quality wines and spirits.
My pick is Waterford. Look for something with some weight to it. These can be enjoyed for years to come with family and friends.
4. Leather Bag
A quality leather bag is the perfect gift for the traveler or the every day office-goer.
I personally like the vintage styles in brown or black. Leather bags have heart and look good with everything. This is a classic that will get used and likely passed down later.
A quality writing utensil commands respect. So does the guy who wields one. This is a great gift for the guy who seals the deals and signs the checks.
My choice is the Mont Blanc. Those who appreciate nice things know exactly what it is when they see it.
There you have it. These are my 5 Timeless Christmas Gifts For The Sophisticated Gentleman. Hopefully this helps with the holiday shopping!
If all else fails, or you waited until the last minute, a subscription to Vigilance Elite Patreon is always a badass present.
