Real Men Have Jewelry Boxes

Jun 2, 2008
What do you get for the man that has everything? A tie is too boring, cologne is a cop-out, and a pair of socks may get you run out of town on a rail. The fact is that the modern day man about town may have already purchased for himself a lot of the toys that he wants or needs. Yes, some people are just impossible to shop for. But have you ever considered a jewelry box?

Don't roll your eyes at the idea just yet. Even the more rugged fellows among us may have good use for a place to keep their trinkets. A favorite watch doesn't deserve to be thrown haphazardly on a desk where it can easily be scratched. Similarly, rings, cufflinks, and bracelets that may have been given with love, or may have some sentimental value to them should be kept safe and sound. Even frequently carried and sometimes misplaced items such as a cell phone, sunglasses, or trusty pen are far better kept in one organized place. And there's no better place than in a finely crafted jewelry box.

Finely crafted doesn't have to mean that it's an effeminate item either. I just use the phrase to imply that just because he's a fireman, a cowboy, or any other rough-and-tumble sort doesn't mean the words "jewelry box" have to be a euphemism for "former shoe box" or "some rusted metal thingy I keep stuff in." There are many different styles of jewelry box to choose from that accomplish the task of being both masculine and a work of art in their own right. Is he the sort that would appreciate a box made of genuine crystal? Perhaps more of a polished silver kind? Leather casing anyone? There are also a variety of woods that can also make for a decidedly manly choice. Maple, oak, walnut, and teak are just some of the options available to you. What could be more macho than wood? It practically gives itself over to the image of a room with an animal head on the wall and the aroma of cigar smoke wafting through the air.

As you can see, there really is variety enough to cater to the style of any man. A jewelry box really is something that any man can embrace as a valued item in the quest to keep his wardrobe and knick knacks in order. And perhaps more importantly, he can do this while keeping his rugged sensibilities intact. So, for your next special occasion, be it an anniversary, birthday, or holiday why not consider broadening your gift search to include a leisurely browse of available jewelry boxes in your area? He may be happy that you did.
