Holiday Gift Guide For Him: The Sophisticate

Up this week on my "Holiday Gift Guide for Him" is the sophisticated male.  Sophistication has no age limits; this man could be your boyfriend, your father, or your boss. Just as long as he has distinguished taste and appreciates the finer things in life, including a good shave;)  



For the sophisticated man in your life, go for the classics - a universally flattering pair of Ray-Ban aviators, a plaid scarf, a luxe money clip - things they may not buy for themselves but that they will use all the time.  On that note, every guy loves a new gadget. Throw some wine into the mix and you have a sure fire winner of a gift with an electric corkscrew. I gave one to my boyfriend last year and he still loves to show it off whenever we have friends over for dinner. 

Have no fear, you don't have to spend a fortune just because he likes the good life. I recommend a design related coffee table book for a budget friendly buy. Consider this one on Eames, it makes an impact in style but doesn't leave a long lasting impression on your wallet.
