Christmas is a time to lavish gifts upon your loved ones, but what do you give that special man in your life, whether he’s your father, husband or boyfriend. Rather than giving him generic gifts, why not give your man of substance a gift with substance. These are some fantastic ideas that will show your man how special and important he is to you.
Sign Language Hand Cufflinks
This line of ‘Deaf & Dumb’ cufflinks was created by designer Paul Flato and has been worn by Hollywood greats such as Greta Garbo. The idea is a twist on the traditional monogram cufflinks by having there monogram in sign language letters instead. The letters depicted are A and W and were created circa 1940 using 14k gold. This really is an extraordinary gift for an extraordinary man. This vintage pair of cufflinks is available for $11,100
Visionaire limited edition portfolio in Leather Louis Vuitton case
Visionaire published it’s ‘Fashion Special’ in 1996, within a few weeks it was sold out. Each of these collectible portfolios is numbered and contains prints from photographers, illustrators and writers such as Jurgan Teller, Mario Testino and Terry Richardson. These visionairy artists were given complete access to interpret collections from Prada, Chanel and Helmut Lang. Cased in a Louis Vuitton monogrammed leather case, this portfolio is a highly sought after piece of fashion history, making it an incredibly unique gift for the stylish man.

This charming cane has been embellished to illicit the feelings of a Spanish night. The one of a kind Vincente Gracia’s piece combines precious jewels with rare gemstones. This jet black cane has been made with ebony, diamonds and silver. Crafted in Argentina, this cane can make that special man reminisce on those romantic nights walking down Las Ramblas in Barcelona. This cane can be yours for $7,300.
Sir Terence Conran Tool Set and Cabinet
Benchmark created this toolbox to mark Sir Terence Conran’s 80th birthday. I use the term toolbox loosely, because this piece is a beautifully crafted set of manliness. It includes a set of Ashley Iles chisels, planes, saws and scrapers by Lie Nielsen and traditional hammers and screwdrivers. This toolbox makes you reminisce about all those days when your special man potters around the house in his faded denims fixing everything you broke. The toolbox is available for approximately $16,000.
Hermes Men’s Boots
This gift is perfect for those winter nights when he gives you his coat, because of course you forgot yours. This pair of Hermes men’s boots in black calfskin feature an Albion 20 mm buckle in stainless steel. These boots have a leachet sole and strike the perfect balance between practicality and fashion. Available in black and brown these boots are available for $1,975.
