Christmas is just round the corner and it’s time to start thinking about what to get for the special people in your life, if you haven’t already! Cufflinks make the perfect heartfelt gift for any men in your life and form an essential part of the mature, masculine wardrobe, and no smart or formally dressed man is complete without them.
What’s more, what else are you going to get someone? Unless you know his hobbies inside and out, chances are you’re going to struggle. Traditional gifts of records or movies have become more and more redundant, with all the streaming services. Bottles of booze are not for everyone. It’s said that every man should own a suit and if you own a suit, you have to own a pair of cufflinks.
Perfect for any Man
Every guy you meet owns a suit. For job interviews, weddings, family meals out, whatever, a quality suit is basically a straightforward recipe to look as good as a man can look, provided it’s well-fitted. However, the suit isn’t the be-all and end-all of looking good.
There are a couple of other tweaks you can do to look better. A shower, a haircut and some hair styling, some cologne, a nice watch, and most importantly of all, some cufflinks.
Always a Great Gift
How many times have you received soap on a rope, a collection of ‘real ales’, bath products, or socks? Or even the dreaded Lynx Africa? They all suck, objectively speaking. And there’s nothing worse than pretending you love a present.
Picture the scene. It’s either Christmas, or your birthday. A good friend or family member has handed you a meticulously wrapped box. You smile, carefully unwrap it, and discover a soap on a rope inside. Glancing up you see them poised, watching your face closely, hanging on your every word. Preparing to say the hurt words:
“Oh no, no, you don’t like it! Don’t worry, it’s okay, I’ve kept the receipt, don’t worry!”
Don’t put someone in that position, buy them a gift they want. Cufflinks can be picked to suit literally any man’s dress sense, and style. Plainer suits? Go for a simple sterling silver design. A snazzier dresser? There’s a million fancier options. Cufflinks, the perfect gift.
