Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide: On a Budget

While the holiday season is supposed to be filled with all things merry and bright, it can also put a major strain on your bank account and cause a lot of headaches. Between buying presents for your entire extended family, your favourite coworkers, and everyone else in between, your bank account can start taking a dreaded nosedive toward the negatives. Finding the perfect gift for a loved one can be problematic enough during the hectic moments of holiday shopping, but adding in the overwhelming pressure of staying within budget is enough to send anyone into that boring gift-card-giving rut.

Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide: For Him

As the holiday gift-buying season is about to begin ramping up, it wouldn’t be a surprise if the last person to get checked off your list is your husband, brother, father, or son. Deciding on gifts for the men in your life – gifts that they will truly appreciate – can be a big challenge. The jewellery store is likely not even on your radar; however, it can be a jackpot in terms of gift shopping this season.

Men’s jewellery is (finally) having its moment! This year we have seen more and more men taking to the streets sporting bold rings, sophisticated watches, and chain necklaces. As the era of men sporting simple wedding bands and nothing else comes to an end, so does the belief that jewellery is only for women.

If you are ready to shop for a special man in your life, step up his style game with a jewellery piece that will also boost his confidence. This gift guide will suggest some of the best – and most wearable – men’s jewellery pieces with our tips on how to help the men in your life style them. Keep in mind that men’s jewellery will work best when you select understated, simple pieces that can work with a range of looks.

Watches

Obviously we had to start this list with the piece of jewellery that is most commonly bought for men as a gift – watches. Watches are one of the most important accessories for a man and are essential to any well-dressed mans’ wardrobe; not only are watches practical, they also add an extra layer of sophistication or bling to outfits for every occasion.

Tip: Make sure the watch you choose suits the life and style of your loved one. If you usually catch him wearing a suit, don’t go for a casual watch. Try a simple, classic leather watch that he can wear every day to work.

Bulova 96A173

This simple watch is both sporty and stylish. Bulova uses hypoallergenic stainless steel with a black leather strap to perfect this chronograph watch. A simple style to match almost any outfit!

Burberry Stainless Steel Watch

This modern-looking Burberry watch is part of our pre-owned offerings, meaning the piece has been loved by someone else before it came into our possession. This particular watch is in excellent condition and features bold angles with the classic Burberry Nova Check pattern behind the dial. Quartz movement pieces in addition to our product guarantee ensure the lucky man who receives this watch over the holidays can enjoy it in near-original condition for years to come.

Necklaces

Men’s necklaces have recently been hot on the fashion scene. While necklaces may be seen as a more feminine accessory, simple changes to them in the chain style or length can help to make them considerably more masculine. Look for chains that are unornamented – these are just as visually appealing yet keep the entire look understated.

Tip: Simple necklaces are a great addition to most men’s fashion, adding a subtle touch of “bling” to any outfit. Have your man wear his new necklace over a plain T-shirt to maintain the minimalist look.

White Gold Heavy Franco Link Chain

mens gents wide snake chain white gold

This heavy chain is surprisingly stylish and modern. Made from 10k white gold, this necklace can be worn in addition to most outfits as an understated accessory.

Yellow Gold Curb Chain

mens curb chain 14k yellow gold gents ne00184

This 20” chain is a bit more in-your-face and perfect for a man who is confident and outgoing. Wrap your man in 14k gold and watch him shine.

Rings

Rings are another great way to add small details to any man’s style. In addition to the most important ring a man could wear – his wedding band – rings can either be utilized to accessorize minimally (one ring per hand) or more excessively (multiple rings on both hands). Popular metals range from white and yellow gold to more unusual choices like titanium and tungsten.

Tip: Rings for men are not only attractive to look at, but they can also help tell a story about who the man is! When you’re selecting a ring for any man in your life, consider his personality and the colours and metals he tends to wear the most – lean towards these when you’re shopping!

White Gold Signet Ring

mens white gold contemporary signet ring rg00732

Polished sold white gold with geometric angles makes this ring perfect for engraving, or leave it plain for a sleek, minimal addition to any outfit.

Yellow Gold Tiered Diamond Ring

mens 10k yellow gold gents large diamond hexagon signet ring rg00692

This large 10k yellow gold ring is finished with .80ct in diamonds in an alluring circular pattern. Add a noticeable flash of bling to every handshake.

Cuff Links

Cufflinks are formal accessories that are used to secure the cuffs around the wrist of a man wearing a dress shirt. Cufflinks come in countless styles, some in unique shapes and others with gemstones embedded into them. Regardless of the style chosen, cufflinks are suitable for any man who wants – or needs – to make an upwardly, professional impression.

Tip: Every man deserves (and needs) a good pair of cufflinks. Don’t cheap out on an inexpensive pair, as you might be sacrificing quality. Widen your budget to consider a solid pair of cufflinks in silver or gold to ensure that your man can make use of his new cufflinks for years to come.

Watch Movement Cuff Links

These unique cufflinks feature real watch movement and are perfect for any style or event. Dress them up or down!

Bracelets

By this point, we’ve established that buying jewellery for men isn’t easy, but using the tips in this guide can make it easier! Our last item is perhaps the most versatile, the men’s bracelet. Bracelets are both trendy and timeless, and come in a huge variety of styles and materials, including metals and high-grade leather.

Tip: Choose a bracelet in a substantial, tough material such as high-grade leather or 10k gold, which is the strongest gold available. Be sure to look for a bracelet that features a masculine design, or you might be making a return trip to your jeweller.

Men’s Gold Fancy Link Bracelet

Modern mens fancy link heavy bracelet in 10k white gold

This bracelet is perfect for any man in your life. Made of 10k white gold, the “Fancy Link” has a good deal of weight to it while maintaining a minimal, masculine appearance that is suitable for everyday wear.

Men’s jewellery does not have to be complicated – in fact, most styles are better when they are kept quite simple. The key tip we can offer is to always consider the everyday style of the man you are looking to buy for; try to match the colour (or metal) of the piece to his personal style. Does your man usually wear suits? Something in leather or 10k gold might be appropriate. Is he a casual jeans and T kind of guy? Go for a thin neck chain, or a simple bracelet.
