My Dear Friends,
I LOVE GIVING GIFTS!! It just makes me feel good! It actually doesn't really matter what the gift is, whether it's jewelry for my wife, an electronic toy for one of my sons, or a bottle of wine for a friend, I gain enormous satisfaction from the experience. But I also take into consideration for whom I'm buying the gift, making sure to buy dry red for my friend (instead of sweet, white).
So let's talk about it!! If giving an authentic gift is really knowing what the recipient likes (or doesn't like) how can you make sure that the gift you choose will be appreciated and on target? And now I'm going to make that challenge just a bit more challenging - what type of gift do you purchase for a man?
The Gift Should Show You Know Him Well
If you're considering a gift of jewelry, my Men's Collection is definitive, refined and well-proportioned, I have curated an assortment of bracelets, pendants and rings to suite that special person in your life. But why type of questions should you ask yourself to make sure you're making the RIGHT purchase? Just as you would purchase jewelry for a woman according to her lifestyle and fashion preferences, incorporating the demands of a man's day-to-day life and style should also be considered.
1. Ask in Advance
Ask in advance. Be open. It's not always necessary for the gift to be a surprise. Ask his friends, do some research. Narrow the search by getting more information and making it more likely the gift will match his wishes. Don't be afraid to say, "The holidays are coming up and I'd like to get you something meaningful that you'll enjoy...what's on your wish list?" Want to be more subtle? Turn the query into a game that you share and you each express your secret wish lists to each other.
2. What Type of Man is He? What's His Style? Flashy or Conservative?
Buying a gift of jewelry for your son? Does he do work that is physically demanding? Then something that won't interfere with day-to-day function will be necessary! A band ring or a flat bracelet may be the perfect accessories that won't get in the way.
If he loves something ornate, and wants to stand out in a crowd, a great pendant necklace may be perfect! With a thick chain, a bold pendant shows a great, bold presence! For a more conservative look something simple and straight forward, like a gun metal chain bracelet may be more refined and neutral for someone with more conservative tastes.
2. Don't Overspend, Just to Impress
A gift from the Danny Newfeld Men's Collection is a great gift of quality for fabulous value!! More money spent doesn't mean better. In fact, something sentimental and symbolic are always appreciated. Personalized or Engraved jewelry with his name, significant dates or symbols shows that you put some effort and thought into the gift increasing its meaningfulness and significance.
4. Make it a Shared Experience
Instead of just a gift, what about plans for a joint adventure? A weekend getaway? Couples massages at a spa. Something he'd never get for himself but that you can enjoy together. Even matching jewelry like our link chain gun metal bracelet!!
5. Non-material gifts are always a safe bet
Give the gift of time. Making him take a break from his routine to do something fun. Make a homemade gift certificate entitling him to...almost anything.
With a little effort, you'll be able to find the perfect gift for the perfect man in your life. Whether it's a gift for your best friend, partner, nephew or grandfather, now's the time to let him know how much you care!!
And for those of you who want to know about the best type of gift you can buy me? I'm actually super sentimental, a picnic in the park, a sunset stroll a gift for me that I love best are those that are intentional, planned out and capture the essence of what I love: nature, family and friends.
