Fashion Jobs – A Guide to Gifting Him Bling

Style Nine to Five - Fashion JobsStyle Inspiration

Figuring out what to get that special guy in your life, whether it’s your father, beau, or work-husband, for the holidays can be quite challenging. I have encountered this dilemma far too many times, and usually I run through a list of potential gift ideas only to come up empty-handed and resort to gift cards. Don’t get me wrong, gift cards are great, but there is something magical about receiving a beautifully wrapped present that a piece of plastic fails to capture. Free yourself from the allure of the gift card this year, and give your man a present that really shines: jewellery. Yes, men can wear jewellery and it looks great when done right. Celebs like David Beckham, Brad Pitt and everyone’s favourite pirate, Johnny Depp, have all been known to throw a great ‘arm party’ every now and then.


To help you with your foray into the world of man jewellery, I’ve rounded up the best bling for men. From necklaces for the guy that loves to rock a man-bun to cufflinks that a stockbroker wouldn’t dare trade, this holiday gift guide has it all!




A hipster is not a hipster without some stackable bracelets. Mixing textures is key to a good arm party, so pick up some woven and leather bracelets for the guy that likes to look ‘straight from the fridge’ (I think I used that term correctly).


CLASSIC MAN-sntf-jewellery


“I’m a classic man. You can be me when you look this clean. I’m a classic man.” If Jidenna’s “Classic Man” was your guy’s summer anthem these sleek and timeless sterling silver finds are dazzling presents for him this holiday.




The masculine feel of these industrial style pieces is great for the rugged, rough-and-tumble, outdoorsy kind of guy. This distressed blue leather Maritime Supply Co bracelet is just the gift for the man that wants to look fashionable while maintaining his ‘tough guy’ edge.


STREET STUNNA-sntf-jewellery


This streetwear aficionado has an affinity for glamorous and ornate jewellery. Gift him chic Lion Collar Tips with gold chain detailing, and he is sure to become the king of street fashion.
