Older gentlemen can be difficult to buy for. They tend not to have a wishlist and therefore often end up unwrapping a rather unimaginative present. And whilst socks and gin are always appreciated, isn’t it time we treated our male loved ones to something a bit more special?
Here we share five of the best gifts for older men who have everything - each lovingly handmade in Britain to last a lifetime.
The best gifts for older men who deserve something special
Whether you’re looking for the perfect Christmas present or something extra thoughtful this Father’s Day, pick from our selection of unique gifts for older men.
Hand Bound Leather Journal
Whether your older gent is an avid writer or likes to look sharp in the boardroom, a leather journal is always appreciated. And this one is not just a style statement.
Hand bound by specialist binders in Gloucestershire, this elegant notebook is made from recycled leather fibres resulting in beautifully textured unlined paper. Each A5 insert is also refillable - making this gift one to enjoy for years to come.
The vegetable tanned leather cover is complemented by an internal pen loop and sturdy gunmetal closure stud. Choose from three timeless colours including navy, chestnut brown and classic black.
Exclusive Newsboy Flat Cap
For something almost no one else has, take a look at our latest collaboration with British hat maker, Laird Hatters. Our limited run of newsboy caps make seriously cool gifts for older men - particularly those who are fans of the hit series Peaky Blinders.
This modern take on the iconic flat cap is made to last, with hard-wearing British wool and a premium leather peak. Choose between a brown or grey flecked tweed, suitable for both town and country men.
Key Wrap Organiser
Every man has a need for better organisation - especially when it comes to their keys. Give your older gentleman a luxurious gift that keeps on giving with a unique leather key wrap, an alternative to the traditional key ring.
The full-grain leather case stops keys from scratching valuables, whilst also putting an end to jangling pockets. Up to five keys can be stored on a concealed metal ring with space for a car fob to be attached on the outside. Choose from five colours including a contemporary forest green.
Modern Leather Briefcase
Older men are notorious for not upgrading their age old accessories - but there’s no better time to enjoy the finer things in life. Whether you’re shopping for a city commuter or business traveller, a quality leather briefcase is a luxury treat that will be treasured for years.
We couldn’t find a modern design that suited both style and practicality - so we made our own! Meet our take on this classic men’s bag, created with soft, sustainable goat leather in two colours.
The slim briefcase has a padded laptop compartment and large interior pocket, as well as an external slip for accessible documents. Plus all our luxury leather bags come with lifetime repair guarantee.
Credit Card Holder
Ok, we’ll admit, men do regularly get given wallets. But this accessory is a bit more special (and we guarantee the leather will never peel away).
Handmade from our unique vegetable tanned goat leather, this minimalist card holder is perfect for occasions that don’t require the everyday bulky wallet. Three individual slots are designed to hold just a few cards and notes, resulting in a slim silhouette ideal for tighter pockets.
Each is handcrafted in batches of 10, starting life at the Billy Tannery microtannery, the first of its kind in the UK. Choose from five colours of sustainable goat leather.
