The leaves may still be changing, but the chill in the air is a clear sign that the holidays are approaching. Looking for the perfect gift for him? Stylish accessories, work bags, classic timepieces and grooming products provide a variety of options, no matter what his taste may be.
No matter how you feel about winter, there’s no denying that a warm scarf and practical pair of wool or leather gloves can be the difference between freezing or traveling smart.
Both cold weather accessories make great gifts for the guy in your life and most gloves now have specialized finger pads to allow smartphone access.
Furthermore, you can’t go wrong with classic kicks by Converse or Adidas. These style mainstays go from casual office to happy hour to weekend plans with ease.
