The country gentleman is a special breed; a man that is rugged and hardy enough to survive the wilds of nature, but also enjoys nothing more than a little bit of luxury.
We have all heard the very much maligned cries of friends and family everywhere proclaiming that: “Men are so hard to buy for!” This is often true of all men, but country gents are a unique puzzle, containing as they do such inherent contradictions within their fine character.
At Country and Home, we have devoted a whole section of our website to finding that elusive perfect gift for the rural gentleman in your life, and today we look at just a small selection from it.
Country Silk Ties
The country gent has to do plenty of mingling. Whether with his peers at formal dinners and business functions, or just in day-to-day life. This requires of him a certain amount of ‘peacocking’, no matter if he is comfortable with donning a jacket and tie or would rather be in his waders at the riverbank. Our luxury silk ties are smooth and cool to the touch, exuding sophistication and obvious quality. Our range of country ties have various rural themes to make any gent feel at ease when wearing them, they may even strike up a conversation based on a shared interest during the many 'meet and greets'.
There is a certain vintage charm about a pair of cufflinks. Originally an item designed to hold cuffs together, they are now largely a decorative item as shirts come with buttons as standard, but the elegance and formal status of a cufflink cannot be surpassed. These too are a great way to allow the gent in question to add a bit of his own personality into his smart and formal attire, representing his interests, strengths and passions right there on his sleeves.
Leather Country Gifts
The quality and hardwearing nature of leather is a staple in the accessory collection of many a gentleman. Created with care and attention, our range of leather gifts are sure to be appreciated for their obvious craftsmanship and practical nature. These leather gifts have styling that is most befitting of the rural male, with themes such as regal stags and loyal Labradors.
Rural Stocking Fillers
We all like to shower the gentleman in our life with affection, and when it comes to gift-giving it is often common practice to buy many smaller items as fun little additions to the bigger, main present. Indulgent it may be, but as we mentioned previously, we all know that the gent loves a bit of fuss! We stock a range of little country-themed gifts (we even have a section for gifts that are under £10
) that will make great little ‘wrap-ups’ to mystify him before the main event. From practical hankies ready for winter, to the ever-popular gift of socks, these little gifts will keep him guessing.
We hope that we have provided you with plenty of country gift ideas for him. Don’t forget to visit the Gifts for Him section of our website to view the whole range.
