Gifts for the Trendy Fellow in Your Life
Does your man put the “hip” in “hipster?” Does he spend more time putting together his ensembles than you do? Does he fancy himself on the Oscars Best Dressed list? We can respect that; a man who takes the time to put himself together can be extremely attractive. If your trendsetting guy has a birthday coming up, you might be asking yourself, “What do I get the man who has everything?” Read this for tips on fashionable gift items for the trendy fellow in your life.
Accessories matter. And why do so few of guys actually wear them? Of course, we’re not talking giant Mr. T jewelry or a pukka shell necklace by any means. But a stylish watch, a fashionable ring, a tie clip and a leather bracelet can set you apart from the rest. We also love when a man can pull off a stylish scarf and/or hat. Talk about debonair. If you really want your man to make a statement with his accessories, consider buying him some cool socks from Stance. Picture him uncrossing his legs as he is on the train for his morning commute to reveal those babies. Now that is hip. No tall black socks with flip-flops for your man!
If your man’s trend is on point, he likely doesn’t want to look like every other guy walking down the street in a statement tee, baseball cap and jeans. Go for something truly unique like a cashmere hoodie or a killer leather jacket. Those items are pretty pricey, though, so if you are looking for unique men’s clothes that aren’t over-the-top expensive, you can always try places like H&M or J. Crew. The latter has been considered pretty traditional but, if you haven’t shopped there recently, you might not realize that they have gotten a bit more adventurous with their fashion. Vests are another way for guys to go outside the norm when it comes to clothing, they always look fab, and they are very much back in fashion right now.
If your man loves clothes but has very little time to shop, subscription services like Birchbox Man and Trunk Club could be the way to go. They each work differently but they typical M.O. is that they send you a number of outfits to choose from each month, and you can send back whatever you don’t like free of charge. How cool is that?
Let’s hear it for outerwear
Coats are a great way for your man to reflect his sense of style. From jackets for the active guy and jean jackets to puffy coats and fleeces, these not only keep your main squeeze warm, but they also add a touch of flair. Another fashion must for a trendy fellow is the trench coat. There is something so sexy about a guy that can pull this look off, and one glance at the trench coats from Zara will make you realize that they don’t just come in the traditional tan style and length.
This has become the unofficial term for men keeping themselves neat and clean. But it can include so much more. Perhaps your guy is into the occasional Botox injection (or “Brotox” as some have dubbed it). Or he loves a good spa day. Many men love a day of beauty. From pedicures and facials to massages and haircuts, women shouldn’t be the only ones allowed to keep themselves looking fab.
Along the same vein would be a gym membership, some personal training sessions or a package of 10 Soul Cycle classes. Chances are, if your man is fashionable and trendy, he also likes to keep himself in good shape. They simply seem to go hand in hand.
Don’t let buying your significant other something he likes turn into a stressful life event. Buy one of these fashionable gift items for your trendy fellow and he will surely swoon.
