Christmas Gifts

You’ve asked your friends, you’ve done research online, yet you still don’t know what to buy your spouse. Should you get him that drone? Will she like this tablet? A decision like this shouldn’t be this hard, right? It is time to get back to the basics. Sometimes, simple gifts that have stood the test of time are best. Here are five classic examples.


The red rose symbolizes true love. Although there are dozens of shades of red, from crimson to bright red, the red rose, in any shade, represents love, romance, passion and respect. Presenting your spouse with a bouquet of beautiful red roses is sure to surprise. For the best roses, look to the rose experts at FTD. They travel the world to find the finest flowers and can deliver them directly to your doorstep. And remember, red roses aren’t just for Valentine’s Day. These symbols of love are perfect for any occasion, or just because.

Diamond Studs & Cufflinks

When it comes to classic jewelry, nothing fits the bill better than the timeless diamond solitaire. And when you think about jewelry traditions, Tiffany & Co. may be one of the first jewelers to come to mind. Since 1837 Tiffany & Co. has been wrapping up the finest sparkling gifts in little blue boxes. And the jeweler has a reputation of not only providing world-class service but the most spectacular diamonds, too. Consider a pair of solitaire diamond earrings for her and a set of sterling silver cufflinks for him.


Showing your gratitude doesn’t have to come in the form of material things. Instead, cook your partner a homemade dinner, from scratch. Cooking and putting in work to make a good meal is more meaningful than the typical date night out on the town. Plan a night for just the two of you, a bottle of wine and good food. Set a romantic mood by dimming your lights, like they do in fine restaurants and lighting a few candles to ignite the spark. For menu inspiration, visit and browse their selection of sexy foods, which includes grilled oysters and a luxe pasta with truffles.


Give your spouse a gift that has stood the test of time for decades, a classic watch. The Detroit-based watch makers, Shinola, are relatively new to the world of watches, but their timeless style is embodied in each handcrafted piece, from the leather to dial to the Swiss-quality movement found inside. Choose from a traditional metal like stainless steel or gold for her and select an iconic timepiece fit with a leather band and chronograph dial for him.

Leather Goods

Every man needs a sturdy and durable wallet. And every woman needs a timeless and elegant handbag than can easily transition from daytime to nighttime. Italian-born designer Salvatore Ferragamo opened the doors to his first shoe shop in California during the 1920s. Today his legend lives on through a collection of handbags, leather goods, shoes, accessories, clothing and more. For her, consider the Italian-made Medium Sofia. It’s modest size is large enough to hold the essentials but not to small to be impractical. And for him, the International Billfold wallet, which is crafted from calfskin and holds eight credit cards.
