Some men may have it all, but there’s always something that will captivate them and enrich their lives. There’s little point in splashing out on a Christmas present that either won’t be appreciated or will quietly be discarded later. So consider the following three suggestions for a gift for the discerning man in your life.
Writing in style
It’s true that we hardly write at all these days, with a pen or even pencil; indeed, the act of handwriting is fast becoming a lost art as everything increasingly turns electronic. But there will always be a need to write something, even if it’s as minimal as signing a document or addressing a letter. What better way to do it than with the sheer indulgence of a luxury writing instrument? Exquisite platinum and gold pens from such famous brands as Mont Blanc, Cartier and Montegrappa, among others, will delight and dazzle, and provide many, many years of elegant penmanship.
Many sophisticated men today have a large number of luxury watches, to go with different occasions and attire. Some even make a habit of collecting high-end watches. But it’s a chore to look after all the timepieces, winding them and therefore ensuring they’re properly lubricated and in perfect working order for when they’re needed. That makes a multiple watch winder the perfect choice for the serious watch collector. These elegant machines will keep them wound through their mechanisms and are also a wonderful way of storing expensive timepieces. They look great and will fit in with any room, such as a bedroom or study. For the man who has just one or two watches, single or double watch winders will be a much-appreciated Christmas gift.
Into the spirit
What man doesn’t enjoy relaxing with a fine tipple that will set the mood for the festive season and get the party started? Consider a collection of sublime whiskeys from leading wine shops such as Harrods’. They’re offering The Dalmore Paterson Collection – 12 different whiskeys from master Scottish distiller Richard Paterson – and which comes in its own cabinet that also houses 12 crystal decanters, for £987,500. A selection of fine world wines or champagnes will also make an excellent gift for the man who really has it all, but who could always use something extra special.
