A Gentleman’s Gift Guide by Ivan Martinez

For today’s post we had our Menswear specialist Ivan Martinez from the killer blog IandJStyle, share his top 5 gift ideas for any gentleman in your life. Happy Holiday Gifting!


“It’s that time again, yes, the time to celebrate! I love this time of year because everyone is happy and friends and family come together to enjoy one another. However, presents are always one of those things that tend to becomes a bit cumbersome. So I’ve decided to share 5 great items for this season to give to any gentleman in your world. Whether it be your dad, brother, cousin or a lover, these gifts are certain to please.

1. Cologne

Yes, we men love to smell good too! There are so many fragrances out there that it is difficult to find a smell that defines someone. However, there is not a subscription that makes this problem a lot less painful, it’s called Scentbird. This is a great fragrance monthly subscription that goes for $15/ month, but for that price, they send you a generous supply of small fragrance tubes.

Now, if a subscription is not really what you are looking for, here are three of my top picks some are darker than others, but they are my go too’s.

Gucci Guilty by Gucci


Versace Eros- Versace


Aqua Di Gio- Giorgio Armani

2. iRobot


We spend a lot of time rushing through the day trying to make time to clean but sometimes its difficult, and here is where iRobot comes in. This thing is amazing, it will clean almost anything, and it even runs on schedules! Yes, you can be at work and ask the iRobot to clean your room (I want it).




3. Boots

There are so many great boot companies out there but there are two that you should consider shopping at, Thursday Boots and DSW.  Thursday Boots offer a lot of different styled boots such as wingtip, chelsea and desert. These boots are all well made with 100% genuine leather. The sole is rubber but it’s awesome for the winter time!







Probably one of my favorite new boot companies is called Taft. These are boots coming from Spain. Much like Thurdays, this company has a wide array of boots and shoes. They are also high quality; however they are a bit more expensive, but believe me they are worth it.







4. An Amazing Watch

If you want to give someone a wonderful time piece that does not break the bank, look no further. This is the Seiko SKX007, it’s a great diver watch. A diver watch can be great in a formal or casual situation.


MVMT A chronograph is also a great gift for any situation. It can be dressed up or down, MVMT is a great watch company that won’t break the bank.


Daniel Wellington
This is the most casual of all the watches, but it looks so elegant. This is a neat gift for that guy that doesn’t like to wear watches all that much, but will throw one on if need be.


5. Underwear

Yes, underwear. Us men sometimes don’t care so much about our intimates as much as women do. However, this brand is amazing for underwear and it’s called MeUndies. This underwear is great it is made out of a 92% MicroModal® and 8% elastane which make them the most comfortable things ever. You can purchase these individually or you can sign up for a monthly subscription.


There you have it, 5 awesome gift ideas for any gentleman. Happy Holidays everyone!

  • “Thanks for sharing, I always recommend to use eau de parfum it’s a little strong and the fragrance last longer than others.
    I recommend to use versace parfum. When you buy versace eros online you get a variety of versace perfumes and at a much cheaper price but always choose eros perfumes. When I was in Saudi Arabia I bought it from ezclick.”

    • Awesome! Thank you so much for giving us this extra money saving tip! Everyone loves to receive more for less 😉 Stay Fierce!
