Genuine Leather Gift Ideas For Men In 2016
I believe the secret to finding the perfect gifts for men is to find out as much as you can about they guy, and then find a present that he will love. It is no different when it comes to buying leather gifts for men. I am always amazed when I discover new things about my male friends that I have known for years.
I played golf with a friend every Saturday morning for about 8 years. It was only recently I found out one of his big passions was model railways. He never talked about it and I never asked. I only found out when I dropped a set of clubs off at his garage and found a whole array of trains and tracks in there.
The point of this though is that before you buy a gift for a man, ask a few of his friends or someone from his family for a little insight, and then try to find him something unusual in that area. As a man receiving a gift I am always best pleased with a gift that I can actually use and comes as a bit of a surprise. Not easy to do I know but so worth the effort if you can get it right.
When it comes to buying leather gifts most people think of belts, shoes, slippers and brief cases. There is so much more than that so have a browse below to see exactly what I mean.
Why Pick Leather Gifts For Men Anyway?
There is something about "real genuine leather" that just smacks of quality. It honestly doesn't matter what type of gift that it is but if it states somewhere on it "Made From Real Leather," then people instantly understand that you have been willing to purchase a good quality gift.
Now leather is essentially the hide of an animal which has then be treated in some way or other. There are different types of leather and as well as that, there are different treatments. In the main there are four types of leather which are:
- Bonded Leather - simply pieces of leather stuck together and very low quality which will not last
- Corrected Grain - essentially the wrinkled skin of an animal that has been buffed to get rid of imperfections - poor quality
- Top Grain - when the hide has been tanned, it is then buffed before the colour is applied - very popular but not great quality
- Full Grain - nothing done to the hid, will develop a great patina and high quality - also very expensive
So as you can probably determine from this many items are made from the top three types I have mentioned above as it keeps it affordable. High quality leather is very expensive but will last longer, and in fact gets better with age.
So the message here is that leather gifts for men will vary greatly in price depending on the actual quality of the leather.
