8 Thoughtful Gift Ideas For Him

'Tis the season to be gifting; when is comes to shopping for him, men always seem to have everything they need.

Lucky for you, we have shortlisted 8 Thoughtful Gift Ideas that will help you gift the man in your life a practical gift that he'll be sure to reach for over and over again.


1. For Classic Men

One can never go wrong with a classic check shirt  — depending on the pattern, check shirts can be as good as a staple white shirt that goes with anything in your wardrobe, or, a statement piece that gives your outfit a little more pizzazz without being too loud.

CYC Checked Shirts, from $86.40 (U.P. $108)

Available in various colours and designs, so you'll definitely find suitable for him. Fabrics specially sourced from top European mills such as Thomas Mason, Albini, and Getzner.

2. For Laid-back Men

Bored of seeing your man in a plain T-shirt? Get him a Smart Polo that will elevate his daily outfit, without him having to compromise on his comfort. Featuring a shirt collar that won't roll or stretch after every wash; he gets to enjoy the smartness of a dress shirt with comfort of a T-shirt.

Your date nights would never be plain and boring again. *winks*

3. For Sartorial Gentlemen

They say nothing completes a gentleman's outfit better than a comfy set of socks. The best way to add that pop of colour to any outfit is by pairing them with socks that complement the suit or outfit that your man is wearing!

4. For Quirky Men

We are pretty sure every pragmatic man owns a necktie, but what about more daring men who want to stand out from the rest? For a change from the boring old necktie, bow-ties would add a touch of fun to his otherwise boring suit.

Self-tie Bow Ties, $49
Bow-ties are always stereotyped with more dramatic personalities or black tie events, hence are mostly neglected in the menswear, especially in Singapore. However, bow ties could make seriously stylish sartorial pieces when styled right.

5. For Techies and Millennials

Millennials and men in tech/fin-tech tend to dress more casually to work a simple round-neck tee, a pair of jeans and sneakers and they'll be good to go.  Ditch that stiff blazer in his wardrobe and replace it with this smart-casual Essential Blazer that's more appropriate for his age. Simply throw this blazer over his usual get-ups and he'll be all set for his up-coming zoom meetings.
CYC Tailor Blazer
Essential Blazer, $79.20 (U.P. $99)

Wrinkle resistant and made with a 2-way-stretch knit that will allow him to move freely when he's on the go. This blazer is so soft that it feels just like wearing a hug (perfect stand-in when you are not by his side!).

6. For the Man Who is all about Practicality

Nothing is more practical than gifting something that is needed for everyday use.CYC Tailor Mask Gift Sets
