Manly Gifts for Your Main Man: Leather Goods

There’s something innately masculine about the look and feel and smell of leather. And there are so many handsome leather accessories that you can gift on Father’s Day, at all price points. A belt or wallet is always welcome. Check out these other sumptuous leather goods that will make Dad swoon.

Ghurka Satchel No. 17, Vintage Chestnut Leather Briefcase, $1,295

Ghurka makes some of the finest, most stylish leather accessories available. I have this exact bag myself; it’s perfect for my laptop. This satchel has seen me through college and aesthetician school, as well as many jobs and lots of travel. You can wear it crossbody with the accompanying padded shoulder strap below, or carry it by its handles.

When you invest in a Ghurka, you are buying an heirloom-quality piece. A bag like this will last you a lifetime, and as the leather ages, it just becomes more and more beautiful. Each and every scuff and scratch simply give it more character.

Fashion legend Coco Chanel said, “The best things in life are free. The second best are very expensive.” And Ghurka is expensive, yes, but it’s also worth every cent.

Ralph Lauren also makes exceptional leather goods. The sophisticated executive would most certainly appreciate tasteful desk accessories, such as the alligator-embossed leather pencil cup above, $95, or a pair of Ralph Lauren bookends, $295, below, for his library.

Lastly, you can always buy a beautiful leather frame for his desk or a wallet with a picture of you inside. Remember though, you don’t have to spend a fortune on quality leather goods. I urge you to check eBay and discount stores, such as TJ Maxx, for luxury gifts that are also affordable. The last thing Dad wants is for you to max out your credit card for him. The truest gifts come from the ♥!
