Gift Guide: Ten Stylish Gifts for Men
Banana Republic Plaid Disk Cuff Links
This under-$40 pair of cufflinks won't break the bank, which makes them another great option for the office Secret Santa. These are also a lot cooler than finding a wad of Snickers bite-size candy bars in the toe of a stocking -- just sayin'. Oh, and it goes without saying that if he doesn't have a shirt with French cuffs you should include one of those, too.
Whiskey Stones Gift Set
This is a gender-neutral gift, so it's perfect for any spirit-loving lady in your life as well. Literally serve spirits on these rocks (after chilling them in the freezer) to keep drinks cold without watering them down. A set of nine is an affordable $19.50; for $58 you get the two glasses as well. Love the asymmetric design on the tumblers!
Watch (Spend vs. Save)
The contrast between the watchband and the watch face make this Victorinox Swiss Army ($495) a very stylish, eye-catching option. Granted, it's a little pricey so if you need a more affordable option you can get a similar look and save a few dollars with this watch by Michael Kors ($195).
J. Crew V-Neck Cashmere Sweater
A wardrobe staple is usually an investment piece, so don't balk at the $225 price tag on this J. Crew cashmere sweater. With proper care this sweater will be in rotation for years to come. Lots of great colors to choose from, but the charcoal will give the sweater sartorial legs.
Converse by Jon Varvatos: All Star Double-Zip Hi-Top
A cool combination of classic Chuck Taylor and sharp urban street shoe, the Converse high-top from Jon Varvatos ($170) is elevated with details like vintage canvas and a double-zip front running up the sides of the laces.
