From bowties and cufflinks to bracelets and wallets, here are some amazing men’s fashion accessories that will make great stocking stuffers this holiday season.


Cufflinks: Small Gestures of Big Luxury

If cufflinks are an extension of one’s style, then these designer cufflinks from the likes of Konstantino, Ettinger, Babette Wasserman and other masters of men’s jewelry, are the perfect complement to any formal attire. From intricate flourishes rendered in onyx, brass, sterling silver and stainless steel, to quirky, officially licensed cufflinks featuring iconic pop-culture brands like Batman and Star Wars, these extraordinary men’s designer cufflinks will liven up any gift exchange. These aren’t your grandfather’s cufflinks (unless you intend on giving them to him this upcoming holiday).


Bow Ties Are the New Black

Bow ties have been enjoying a resurgence in recent years, with more men eschewing the traditional tie and opting for bow ties, which can add an interesting and eccentric twist to your professional look. Bow ties are also acceptable in less-formal social situations, so you get versatility with a great look. And you won’t look like you walked out of a consignment shop for college professors, as these bow ties are on the cutting edge of modern style, with world-class designs from Bruno Piatelli, Bird Dog Bay, Jeremy Argyle, and Lazyjack Press that will leave your gift recipient ecstatic.


Get Wrapped Up with Bracelets

Bracelets are one of the most popular men’s luxury fashion accessories today. Some of the top men’s jewelry designers like Astali, J Goodman, Scott Kay, Tateossian, and William Henry work in a variety of materials, including sterling silver, precious gems, even rare textiles such as mammoth and dinosaur bone, snake vertebrae, and more. What kind of bracelet will you stuff your favorite guy’s stocking with this holiday?


What’s in Your Pocket?

Ah, the pocket square. It’s such an underappreciated and underused men’s fashion accessory. If you know any guys that want to accent their professional look, wow them with an amazing designer pocket square, which they can use to coordinate (or offset) color in their ensemble. There is a huge selection of colors and patterns available and, depending on one’s style, these pocket squares allow wearers to be classically cool or brazenly bold. The most sought-after designer pocket squares come from Italian masters like Bruno Piatelli and Caravaggio, and there are many other players in the market, including Armstrong & Wilson, and makes for a much welcome gift to find in one’s stocking this holiday
