I’ve done a post before on little luxury gifts for her from Nordstrom so I thought it would be fun to talk about luxury gifts for men. Yes for men! Plus, it gives me a great excuse to have my darling husband make an appearance today.

When I say luxury gifts, I’m talking about a high-quality, designer staple that they will have in their closet for years.  A classic jacket is a perfect example. About five years ago I bought a timeless coat similar to this one for my husband and he still wears it all the time. This year I have chosen the Burberry Hadley Jacket.

This casual Burberry jacket is well-priced for a designer piece and so versatile. It looks great as we have styled it here with jeans but would be equally perfect with slacks for a business casual look. A sizing note:  He typically wears a 40R or 42R in a sport coat but these have European sizing.  This jacket is the size 34 for reference.  I have paired the jacket with another little luxury – a cashmere half zip sweater. Cashmere is the luxury fabric that last for many many years also. You can read here how to care for your cashmere and keep it looking great.

A cashmere scarf is always a great holiday gift. I’ve layered this one with the sweater and jacket. With our warm Texas weather sometimes all you need is the addition of a scarf to be warm.  Keeping your neck warm it makes such a difference! This handsome scarf with a combination of charcoal and black is so versatile as well.  Wearing it to the office with a suit, business casual or even super casual weekend wear, this scarf will be something he will wear for many years.

Nordstrom has so many great gifts for men. I have included all of my favorites in my Gift Guide for Men with a full post and update coming this week.
