Union Square SF’s 2013 Gift Guide: For the Gents

We’ve covered the ladies, now it’s time to get gifts for the gentlemen in your life! We’ve curated a list of stylish and exciting gifts for men with great taste! Everything is available here in Union Square, so you can check these off your list in no time. 

The Dapper Gent

Jewelry isn’t just for the ladies. Adam Neeley has some stunning men’s pieces that would wow a special guy in your life. Try the Vibe cufflinks (item 1, above - $590) in Sterling Silver with clean and classic oxidized lines that will make his outfit look truly polished.

For another perfect addition to any handsome ensemble, consider the sleek Philippe Starck titanium sunglasses (item 2 - $600) from Alain Mikli. These stunners have polarized lenses and are really sturdy for the guy on the go. 

Thomas Pink is a great stop for truly stylish winter accessories. We love these Dunstable Gloves (item 3 - $270) made of beautiful soft leather to keep his hands warm and fashion-forward on a chilly night.

For the Scotch lover in your family, we recommend a festive plaid Ralph Lauren decanter (item 4 - $140) from Macy’s. It’s both elegant and useful. You can also get the glasses and the ice bucket to match if he’s been really good this year.

The Good Sport

If he enjoys walks in the woods or just taking an urban hike, we recommend a good pea coat. Bonobos offers an excellent selection of well-fitting, fashion-forward men’s clothes, including The Deerfield, an English-milled military style peacoat (item 5 - $428). Want to step up his golf style? Consider the The Highland Pant (item 6 - $118) also from Bonobos – it holds up to their promise of a better fitting pant with fun features like a scorecard print pocket liner, a grip insert in the waistband to keep his shirt tucked and a zipper at the hem to allow for adjusting the break of the trouser.

If he enjoys unique sports, we like the Lopes Mendez Beach Paddleball Set from Neiman Marcus (item 7 - $210). This set includes two attractive handmade wooden Racquets from Brazil and the balls needed for this challenging sport.

The Tech Geek

If he’s into technology, you can always stop by the Apple Store on Stockton Street, and they’ll hook him up with the latest and greatest iProducts. If you’re looking for something a little more unique, visit Ethos on Sutter Street. They offer the PokketMixer ($79.99) from Berlin - a mobile mini DJ mixer for everyone, allowing him to mix music at home, in the car, at a party or anywhere he likes by plugging in two different mp3 players.

To carry his laptop in style, we recommend the beautifully designed Tarpuline Briefbag from Porsche Design (item 8). This unique shop offers a wide variety of products that truly live up to the Porsche name – all are exceptionally stylish and luxurious. See their full gift guide here.

We’re sure something on this list will please the special guys in your life. Just remember, there’s still time to shop – we’ve got it all here in Union Square from big department stores to boutique menswear shops, so stop by and get all the perfect gifts for you family!
