not too far from his comfort zone

On the other had, if we try to get creative when choosing a luxury gift for him, we may end up seeing our gift sitting in the same box it came in months after the big day. Aim too high and you could over-shoot. Which is a waste of time, money, and a perfectly good shopping expedition. How many times have you heard “this too nice/fashionable/expensive for me to wear/use/try. I’ll keep it for a special occasion.” Epic fail.

something perfect for a man of refined taste

Then there’s the fear factor. What if the man on your list is a sophisticated and stylish gentleman who appreciates luxury and fine details? Well, then all of a sudden, shopping for him can feel downright intimidating. Get it wrong, and you’ve shown him (and the world) that you Just. Don’t. Get. It. Yikes.

Ugh! This is why gift certificates remain such a popular option.

That is, until now, dear readers. We have scoured the shops for the ultimate gift guide of chic luxury gifts for men. Our first priority is that the gift always be thoughtful and distinctive. It should feel as if it were meant for him, here and now. It’s also practical and works seamlessly into his life and maybe, even improves upon his daily routine and habits.
