Choosing a gift for the man in your life, a male colleague or even your boss is so much easier when you start your search by browsing through a collection of things that are specially selected with a man in mind. Find the perfect adornments for a man cave or to add an extra touch of panache to a man’s office decor with the selection of gifts for men from west elm. These pieces provide contemporary looks and classic industrial design for that just-so masculine touch. Incorporate the sounds, scents and cosy touches that make the man in your life feel at home whether he’s at the office, chilling out on the sofa or grilling for guests in the backyard.
Music speaks to the soul, and that makes it an enjoyable gift to receive. Music accessories are an ideal gift for the audiophile who enjoys dancing around the house or stretching out in bed to listen to tunes or watch a favourite TV show. Deliver the gift of music with a turntable and classic LP albums of favourite bands and musicians. Or, wrap up wireless speakers to provide the kind of pristine sound quality that comes from a digital music player or entertainment system.
Barware pieces like jiggers, mixing sets and glassware make nice gift ideas for the man who enjoys entertaining guests. They’re pretty nice for relaxing at home after working all day, too. Help him set up a well-stocked beverage and snack area with gifts for the bar or bar cart. Add some thick coffee mugs to the collection for guests who prefer a steaming mug of coffee or cocoa over chilled beverages. Tuck snack dishes to hold nuts and candies under the bar, and make sure a set of coasters are handy to protect the surface of tables and counter tops.
Take the party outside with gifts that are designed for outdoor use, like hefty planters, barbecue aprons, tea towels and handy tote bags. Fill planters with potted trees or a small container garden to grow fresh vegetables. Position the planters between pieces of lounge seating or in unexpected areas like corners of the patio. Set up the grill area with tea towels for cleaning hands and a manly apron for the chef. Fill the tote bag with spices for grilling or stick a set of barbecue tools in the bag for convenient carrying.
Choose a gift that stays front and centre for daily use to make sure the recipient thinks of you every time he looks at your gift. Pieces like desk organisers and sculptures are great for this. A desk organisers helps keep the work space neat and tidy, which is a benefit for anyone working in a busy setting. For the man who isn’t tied to a desk, art is a way to bring this type of daily interactivity to your gift selections. Sculptures add beauty and style to the desk top, dresser top or bookcase where they are displayed.
Comforting gifts that add warmth and soft, masculine scents are another special gift idea to consider. Make it easy for him enjoy the cosiness and warmth of plush throws that are all his own when he stretches out on the couch or relaxes in his favourite chair. Give him some extra good luck with traditional lucky symbols to display on the desk or hang on the wall. Welcome the delicate flickering light from a scented or shaped candle that is perfect to display on a bathroom counter or entryway table. Carry the delicate but masculine scent theme into the bathroom with scented bar and liquid soaps for hand washing and quick cleanups after a workout.
