It is never easy buying gifts for men. A mens jewelry box or valet box may be just what you are looking for. These boxes are not girlish in appearance and can be utilized by a man to keep his wallet, mobile, loose change and all that he carries around everyday safe and in one place.
Made from strong materials like wood and leather that give of a manly feel, a valet is not to be confused with a woman’s jewelry box. These boxes come in a variety of shapes and sizes and are meant to be placed on bedside tables and dressers. Valets made of Teak, Mahogany and Maple wood are popular choices for expensive valets while those made of metal are opted for by pragmatic men.
Jewelry boxes for men are primarily functional in nature but at times do serve as status symbols depending on the materials and embellishments they come with. A valet can be an individual’s expression of class and elegance. Color and the style of the box play a major role in ascertaining this.
A good valet box should have dedicated space for cuff links, ring rolls and provision to hold one or two watches. All this will ensure that prized and expensive accessories are safely stowed away. Since there are a large variety of valet boxes available, you could choose one depending on the requirements of your man.
Should he have a collection of watches, you will want a valet box that has multiple watch rolls. Should a suit and tie be a mandatory work outfit for him, one that can store a number of cuff links, along with other items would prove useful. Boxes with soft interiors should be the preferred choice as they prevent watches and jewelry from getting scratched.
Technology buffs would love a valet box that comes with a charging unit attached to it. There are units available that come with built-in charging ports for a MP3 player, a mobile phone, a tablet, and an organizer. A travel case also forms part of such units allowing a man to store all his needs on a trip.
Sea-lovers will appreciate the naval-themed valet. These come with compasses built into the lids just like a real sea-faring captain would have.
Some valet boxes come with lids that can be lowered and then locked, while others come with the convenience of slide-out trays. There are even those that have mirrors for men who like to give themselves one last look before heading out. For easy carrying, some valets are collapsible until it’s needed and others have turned out edges.
Valet boxes make great gifts for special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries and promotions. There is a style to suit every age and so they make great graduation and coming of age gifts as well. Valet boxes are elegant ways of being organized and make for gifts that can never go wrong.
