Gift Guide for the Sophisticated Gentleman

If you’ve ever needed to buy a gift for a sophisticated gentleman you’ll know how hard it can be. Recently I’ve spotted a few great choices for the man who has everything and so thought I’d share these by putting together this simple 3 point guide. These gifts won’t be cheap but then nor will be the man for whom they are bought.


1 – The Tag Heuer Watch

If you really want to treat your man, why not go for a timeless timepiece, elegant and expensive.

A watch is a useful yet personal gift idea for and with proper care, will last him a lifetime. A quality watch will speak for itself and demand respect. What a man chooses to wear on his wrist matters, so why not give him the best.

Over the last 50 years the Heuer Carrera watch has become one of the most recognisable designs. Originally intended as a ‘tool’ watch for the use of race car drivers, the Carrera was designed with durability prioritized, making the watch shockproof, waterproof and anti-magnetic.

The Heuer Carrera watch was first launched back in 1963 when Heuer were mainly known for producing stopwatches. Designed by none other than Jack Heuer himself, the watch has classic Carrera styling. The dial is clean with markers that are well spread out.

With good chronograph performance and highly responsive pushers, this watch is also comfortable to wear which is an important factor when deciding on something your man will be wearing every day. When purchasing the watch, you also have the option to choose between strap and bracelet, making the Tag Heuer Carrera my watch of choice.

This watch and watches similar can be purchased at Watches of Switzerland.

Watches of Switzerland have 15 showrooms spanning across the UK with loyal customers, some of which have been with them for over 50 years.

When entering a Watches of Switzerland store, you will always be greeted with the same warm welcome with an added personal approach.

2 – Leather wallets by Ettinger

A wallet doesn’t just have to be somewhere to store your id or credit card; a quality wallet can be stylish, useful and light and if you’re looking for quality you want to go for leather.

Buying a wallet for a man is a practical gift and if you buy quality it can last a life time.

One of the most important factors to consider when choosing a wallet for a man is a coin pocket. This prevents all the spare change from rattling around in his back pocket.  Not every design of wallet has a coin pocket so choose carefully.

My go-to shop for buying a luxury man’s leather wallet has to be Ettinger. With a sumptuous collection of some top quality wallets the types of leather range from the superbly embossed crocodile print of the ‘Croco’ to the unique tattoo designs etched into oxblood leather by Saira Hunjan, celebrity tattoo artist known as the girl with the golden needle.

3 – Glen Livet Nadurra 16 year single malt whiskey

What better way to tell your man you love him than buying him a sophisticated tipple.

Enter Glen Livet Nadurra 16 year old batch.

With notes of orange and marmalade with a touch of bramley apple and and honeycomb, this single malt whiskey is described as ‘pure entertainment’.

The palate is full and rich while the nose is well-balanced. This is a malt that is strong yet smooth, with a warm and complex finish.

This is hands down the best single malt whiskey I have ever had the pleasure of tasting and a must for the sophisticated gentleman.
