I love this saying….
When you stop believing in Santa Claus
You get underwear.
Why is it that we tend to buy underwear and socks for our guys? Is it because it’s something you can always use, something they really need, or is it just our lack of imagination? Or do we feel like the men in our lives don’t “believe in Santa” and the spirit of gift giving and we buy them socks and underwear?
Don’t worry, we think the man in your life still believes in the spirit of Christmas, and we picked several gift ideas for him for this year’s Holiday Gift Guide. We are starting with 7 picks for the sophisticated man in your life, picked by Wes Holland of Life Through Preppy Glasses and the Monsieur Curations column for Skimbaco Lifestyle.
1. Melrose Patterned Wool Scarf by Barbour, $99
This 100% wool scarf is made in Scotland, and it’s at the same time very trendy, but also a classic pattern that he will like for a long time. It gives just enough color for otherwise often dark winter wardrobe.
Love the pattern on this scarf and the heritage behind the Barbour brand.” Wes
2. Salvatore Ferragamo Double Gancini Cuff Links, $250
Give him the heritage style cufflinks and he will keep them forever.
Perhaps an “overdone” gift, but sometimes you cant go wrong with a classic pair of cufflinks for a businessman or recent hire.” Wes
3. Tom Ford ‘Noir’ Eau de Parfum
Let’s face it, you too want him smelling good.
Cologne makes a great gift and Tom Ford’s Noir is nothing but amazing.” Wes
4. ‘Leighton’ Chukka Boot by UGG $160
These leather boots easily go from business to weekend, and just might become his favorite shoes for the winter season.
5. Richard Nixon throw by Jonathan Adler $295 baby alpaca.
Want to cuddle up on the couch with your man? Give him this alpaca throw combined with a stack of movies to watch during the Holiday break, and promise spending time cuddling on the couch with him and watching all the classic movies he loves.
I always love the color combinations and patterns from Jonathan Adler.” Wes
6. Deluxe standing valet , $149.95
The valet makes dressing up on the so much better, seriously. Great for the businessman or the man who loves fashion to have your clothes ready to when you are.
7. Walshaw Pheasant Crew$148
This high quality merino wool sweater is perfect for all those Holiday parties and weekends at the country house.
