There were so many ideas that we had, so decided to streamline it to six categories: unique watches, knives, razors, headphones, artisan wallets and pens.
It is important to remember that gifts are rarely about the price.
So how to choose a present for your man? There is no golden way to do it. But being a bunch of guys we know that these are ideas that will get many men excited. It depends on what they like, of course, but I trust it will give you some good ideas.
You can also go for the country. If your man is from a European country – something from his homeland will be appreciated automatically. Very often we don’t know many of the artisans from our countries. But indeed it is a lovely touch even for everyday items.
