Ties? Cologne? Cufflinks? Banish the humdrum thought. The man in your life — whether he be your boyfriend, father, brother, or BFF — deserves something truly luxe. If he's got discerning taste, it's time to pull out all the stops and get him a stand-out gift he'll love.
But even when you're ready to splurge, it can be tough to know exactly which gift to choose. Never fear! We've done the research so you don't have to. No matter what his age or interests, you'll find a knock-his-socks-off present on our list of the Best Luxury Gifts For Men.
Noise Canceling Headphones. A pair of noise canceling headphones is the perfect gift for the man who doesn't like distractions. Whether he travels a lot, works better in silence, or needs to block out extraneous sounds while studying, noise canceling headphones will give him the invaluable gift of peace and quiet.
Professional Ice Ball Maker. If he loves his home bar, a professional ice ball maker could be right up his alley. Perfect for the amateur mixologist, a professional ice ball maker brings a whole new level of glamour and sophistication to cocktails of all kinds. Add a bottle of his favorite high-end liquor and you've got a gift he'll talk about at parties for years to come.
High-End Cigar Cutter. Sometimes the accessories make all the difference. Add a bit of flair to his cigar habit with a high quality cigar cutter. The best ones are made from razor sharp steel, come with a leather sheath, and look drop-dead classy when you pass them around a soon-to-be smoke-filled room.
Telescope. He reaches for the stars, and now you can help him see them, too. A telescope is one of the most intellectual and inspiring gifts on our list, and perhaps the one most likely to become an heirloom. Great for astronomy buffs, Star Wars fans, and tech geeks, a telescope is a must have for any man who likes gazing at the night sky. Go for one strong enough for near and deep sky observation so he can check out detailed images of the moon and planets.
Foosball Table. Help him round out his game room or just give him a little childhood flashback with a foosball table. Not only is a foosball table great during parties or as a couples' activity, it's got great old school vibes, as well. If he's already got one, wow him with a Pac-Man or pinball machine instead.
An Experience. For the man who quite literally has everything, gift him an experience he'll never forget. If he thrives on adrenaline, try a hang-gliding or ice climbing lesson, a whitewater rafting trip, a ride in a glider, or a bungee jumping session. If he's a bit more urbane, a private class with his favorite painter, musician, or chef could be the perfect ultra-memorable gift.
A Rowing Machine. Bring the gym to him with a home rowing machine. Maybe he's missed his cardio sessions during quarantine or just wants to save time by working out at home. A rowing machine is the ideal way to give him a great workout that utilizes his leg, back, arm, and shoulder muscles. It also has a classic style that gives it a little extra cachet.
A Grill. Want to give him something he'll use every night in the summer (and even year-round). Go for a grill. And before you ask, no, not just any grill. Look for a model with sleek lines and high-end features like an integrated smoker and rotisserie system. Stainless steel construction and off-the-charts BTUs are must-haves, too. The best part? You'll get to enjoy the fruits of the grillmaster's labor whenever he fires it up.
Anything Cashmere. A cashmere blanket, sweater, or scarf is the ultimate luxury item for men. Cashmere is warm, soft, luxurious, and perfect for any man, no matter what his personal style. It's also incredibly versatile, making it a go-to gift for many occasions. Give him a cashmere throw to snuggle under while watching TV, a cashmere bathrobe for relaxing after a long day, or a cashmere hat for keeping his ears warm during frosty winter days.
Turntable. If he likes his music loud and made of vinyl, then a turntable should be at the top of your gift list. A turntable is not only an on trend item that looks cool, it can offer hours of pure musical enjoyment, whether he's home solo or spinning tunes for a crowd.
Luxury Recliner. A reclining leather chair is the ultimate relaxation piece for anyone. Whether he spends most of his time at the office or works from home, a comfortable recliner will give him the perfect place to escape at the end of a long day. Add some plush pillows and a luxe throw for maximum comfort. Your guy will love lounging around in this bad boy.
Monogrammed Leather Mouse Pad. Add a little traditional elegance to his high-tech set-up with a monogrammed leather mouse pad. He may have every gadget known to man, but a leather mouse pad stamped with his initials brings an element of timeless style to his office.
Aviator Jacket. There isn't a man alive who doesn't look great in an aviator jacket. The shape flatters every type of body, and the combination of class and cool is perfect for all personality types, but professional to bohemian to fashion forward.
Camping Equipment. Help him escape the rat race with a full camping set-up, including tent, campstove, sleeping bag and pad, lantern, and ground cloth. If he's always wanted to sleep under the stars, here's your chance to make his dream come true. Backpack, daypack, water filtration supplies, and camp kitchen equipment optional.
High-Powered Blender. Amp up his morning smoothie routine with a pro-level blender. There's nothing like a truly epic piece of culinary equipment, especially if it's also practical. A quality will make short work of just about anything he wants to make, from soups to sauces to protein shakes.
Monogrammed Whiskey Glasses. Personalize his favorite tipple with crystal glasses featuring his name, initials, or logo. They're the perfect way to show off his sense of style and they can last for decades.
