Kimberley's Graduation Gift Ideas
by Kimberley Thompson, Tastemaker in Residence
I often find people wandering the aisles for JB Hudson this time of year with slightly dazed attitudes. They invariably ask if we have graduation gifts for men. (Apparently women are easier to find a graduation gift for!)
I have compasses, signet rings, sterling or gold bracelets, cufflinks and watches for starters. Yet; none of these great suggestions meet their approval.
Ah; I get it. These shoppers want something that hasn't already been given by numerous other people.
I have 3 answers: all made by the same company:
A pocket knife meant to be carried from now 'til the end of life, a vibrant money clip that speaks volume about personal style, and a scrumptious satin finished bracelet to wear from black tie to holey blue jeans!
Meet William Henry; an American icon:
"William Henry is an American brand creating timeless personal style for men through unique accessories crafted with honor and integrity."
"The brand earned its fame for creating exclusive and award-winning pocket knives, and transforming the archetype of all tools into a superb piece of functional jewelry for men. Today’s collections also include men's jewelry, writing instruments, money clips, cuff links, key chains."
"The seamless integration of classic natural materials, precious metals & gemstones, and state-of-the-art alloys is a hallmark of William Henry’s work. But what makes this brand so distinctive is that it has proudly retained the aura and feel of an artisan workshop, where most pieces are designed and created exclusively in limited, often unique editions."
I recommend the Kestral Glow pocket knife for $850.00. Look at that blade!
The colorful money clip retails for $495.00. Who cares if it is only holding a handful of bills!
The satin bracelet is aptly named sleek! One forgets it is on your wrist...until you catch an admring glance or 2! Price is $595.00.
