I often think that buying for the man in your life can actually be quite difficult! I used to try buying tech bits and pieces like a GoPro (not used yet) or a Kindle (there may be one book on it?) etc. Then I tried hobby bits and pieces like new trainers for running, hiking accessories etc. – well also a fail and they added to our never end (barely used) sports collection. But then I think I nailed it – high-quality everyday pieces that he will use – a new wallet, a new watch, a new travel bag etc. So it is in that range that I am sharing today – but of course Irish Designed!
So first up is this beautiful set by CarveOn. They are an Irish Company set up by two brothers Alan and Gary McCormack and their products are made using both traditional and modern manufacturing techniques and it is all done in house. The attention to detail on their products means that this is a product that he will use on travels for many years to come.
When it comes to edgy jewellery for men that is high quality and yet still unique – Edge Only is certainly the brand to look to. It combines luxury with rock and roll and their pieces are made from solid gold and sterling silver. Certainly not a new brand to feature on Floralesque, last year we featured an interview with the talented designer Jenny Huston as well as a feature on their AW16 collection.
When I was researching for this piece I came across these Mcgonigle watches and the just stopped me in my tracks. The detail and finish on them is just stunning and would certainly make a stand out gift. I have not seen these in person but you can read about them here.
As many readers of Floralesque will already know – I am quite the fan of The Atlantic Equipment Project and actually own 2 of not 3 of her stunning bags myself. Well, Ashleigh also designs the most excellently made bags for men as well. This really would make the most thoughtful gift especially if he likes the outdoors as they will last for many years to come. Check out the full range here.
And lastly, for the man in your life – a special hand-crafted one of a kind piece. Colm Brennan Woodturning creates some beautiful segmented pieces which would certainly add a depth of luxury and also craft to any office. I cannot recommend these pieces enough – beautiful, eye-catching and finished to the highest quality.
Hopefully, this gave you a few ideas of what to get the man in your life. And if all else fails – surprising him with a great home cooked meal with some delicious wine can also work really well 🙂
