You can tell a man’s taste by just looking at his shoes. Did you know that shoes are one of the first physical things that women notice in a man? You can get him a pair of oxford or monk strap for formal events. A derby or Chelsea boots would look great on him for semi-formal events or even an outing with the guys. A good outfit starts with a shoe.

The functional purpose of wristwatches has been dwarfed by its aesthetic value. A stylish man knows he’s incomplete with one. Your man’s wristwatch can be an extension of his personalities. Gift him a watch that suits his personality.



Picking a perfume can be a tricky decision. A man’s scent is a reflection of his character. Two scents that do well on most men are oriental and woody.

Oriental is a sensual and rich scent that is defined by spices such as vanilla, patchouli, and cinnamon. Musky scents also fall into this category, providing a heavy note to the Oriental scents. Woody is a scent derives from nature and gives off a very manly smell.
