Your significant other already has drawers full of socks, and nothing says “I waited until the last minute” like a necktie. So, instead, consider the items that put a modern twist on the traditional. Upgrade their go-to items with gifts that show you’ve noticed their preferences and want them to have the top-shelf picks. Whether it’s Valentine’s Day or Christmas, your significant other’s birthday or a night out to celebrate their promotion, it’s always a challenge to gift your partner with something they can really use — and actually want to use.
Your significant other never takes time to indulge, so consider top-of-the-line grooming tools they don’t have time to buy during the week, or new, great-looking style staples. Select the gifts that keep on giving: a weekender bag for that upcoming three-day weekend (who doesn’t like a gift that encourages a trip?) or perhaps an instant camera to remember every screen-free moment on the road. You know your significant other better than anyone else, so now it’s time to give your other half the best present they’ve ever gotten.
Ahead, we partnered with GUESS Fragrances and picked out 12 style-savvy picks for significant other who already has it all together — but knows there’s really no such thing as looking too sharp. Here’s to the person who appreciates the finer things in life, be that an expertly crafted derby dress shoe or an exceptionally great girlfriend.
