Jewellery Gift Ideas For Men

Unlike normal gifts, jewellery gifts tend not to be very seasonal – styles of ring are less inclined to be influenced by the Christmas season for example. Something which probably will affect the type of jewellery you buy is the age of the recipient, and as such I will try to cover a range of gift ideas for men of different ages.

Designer Jewellery

You don't have to look far to find men's designer jewellery, and you can expect to pay a low to moderate amount depending on the item type and materials used. Some examples of designer jewellery for men are as follows:

As men's jewellery tends to contain less precious gemstones than women's, the majority of the item's worth is determined by the metal used and of course the brand name (which can be a good indicator of quality).

Designer jewellery for men will likely appeal to younger adults the most, although older men will still appreciate the quality and design of a good piece.


Everyone needs a good watch, and watches can be ideal gifts for men as there is a great deal of variety to choose from. Watches are available with different strap types (e.g. leather & metal), in different materials and with varying features. Some of the more important features to look out for are the following:

  • Scratch resistant coating
  • Anti-reflective coating
  • Water resistance
  • Quartz Movement (for better accuracy)
  • End of Life battery indicator
  • Chronograph (a watch with both timekeeping and stopwatch functions)
  • Luminous hands

As you might expect, the quality of the watch will largely dictate cost, although you could quite easily pay a huge sum of money for watches with big brand names. Watches tend to fall into one of a few categories; style, sport or casual. Deciding which of these your gift falls into will help whittle down the choice.

Here at John Hollins, we sell both Victorinox watches and Rotary watches for men and women.


Whilst designer cufflinks can be purchased (see ‘Designer Jewellery' above), you will also find a huge selection of unbranded cufflinks available. These are an excellent jewellery gift as they are small, stylish and due to the huge choice, you can spend however much you want.

Men's cufflinks are most commonly found in silver, gold plated and 9ct gold. They may also feature precious and semi-precious gemstones such as ruby, onyx and Mother of Pearl to give them some extra variety.

Another thing which makes both silver and gold cufflinks a great gift idea is that many feature a plain surface for personalised engraving – a service which any good jeweller can provide for you.

Business Card Holders

Whilst rather uncommon, business card holders promote a very professional image and could be a great gift idea for any businessman. Many business card holders are made with stainless steel and leather; they often feature an engraving plate for names or initials.

Hip Flasks

Although not for everyone, leather hip flasks can be very stylish and could be a great gift for the right person. Many have engraving plates and can be found in several shapes and sizes. As with business card holders, hip flasks are generally found in stainless steel and leather, some may also come with presentation boxes making them ideal presents.
