(StatePoint) The pressure to find the perfect gift when shopping for men this holiday season can easily become a daunting endeavor,
but with online retailers, shoppers can better search for the perfect gift with these simple tips.
“It’s important to remember that a well thought-out gift often leaves the greatest, lasting impression,” says Denis Daly Wood, founder of fourth-generation luxury men’s designer and online retailer Dalys 1895.
Well-versed in luxury menswear, founder Denis Daly Wood curates innovative and exclusive accessories from around the world for Dalys 1895 each season. He offers the follow tips to help ease the gift buying process:
• Hone in on what he loves
Keep the recipient’s interests in mind while shopping. If the recipient spends his free time sailing or by the beach, nautical-themed cufflinks or Caravaggio pocket squares are tasteful ways to incorporate his interests into a useful gift.
• Think outside the box
Everyone loves receiving thoughtful, one-of-a-kind gifts. Engravable items, such as sterling silver money clips, are not only useful, but should be personalized to make the gift even more heartfelt.
• Make practical purchases
If the recipient is a frequent traveler, an overnight tote or weekender bag from Jack Spade, Troubadour, or the British Belt Company makes for a stylish and useful gift. While everyone loves a good gag gift every now and then, the most well-received gifts are tasteful and practical.
• Set a spending cap
It may be tempting to overspend, but it is important to set a reasonable budget and stick to it. Many online sites allow you to filter products by price. Shoppers should use these price sorting filters to ensure you shop smart.
• Find versatile gifts
Finding a gift that satisfies a number of the recipients’ interests can be difficult, but will ultimately prove to be gratifying. Wearable technology, like sterling silver 16GB USB cufflinks, are a great gift that complement style and function allowing him to store his favorite movies, music and more on-the-go.
• Build in extra time
Consider reputable online retailers to avoid mall traffic, but be sure to take shipping time into account. If an item needs to be engraved or embroidered, build in ample time to ensure the gift arrives in time for the holidays.
• Find a retailer with a generous return policy
Even with the best intentions, gifts may need to be exchanged. Seek out a retailer which offers free returns and other customer service perks.
