Gifts For The Older Gentlemen In 2021
Buying for an older gentleman can be hard. When you get a bit older, you normally have the money to buy what you need, so it’s harder to think of great gift ideas. That’s why we’ve found 20 different luxury gifts for the older gentleman. We’ve got everything from wallets to cigar humidors and everything in between.
Gifts For The Older Gentlemen
Every man needs a wallet, and most of them will already own one. But not many people have a wallet with RFID blocking technology built-in. Genuine Leather RFID Bifold Wallet protects your cards from being swiped by an illegal card reader, a crime that’s becoming more and more common. That’s not the only reason we love this wallet though, it perfectly mixes new technology and old-school design.
As you get older, you start to collect more and more cards, membership cards, IDs, and receipts, and you need somewhere to store it all. This RFID wallet is absolutely chock full of space to keep valuables safe – it has 2 ID windows, 10 card slots, and space for notes and coins. It’s also made from beautiful, vegetable-tanned leather and it’s towards the smaller end of the scale.

Beards have always been cool. But nowadays, if you want to have a trendy beard, you’ve got to take care of it.

They have all been designed to be small enough to fit inside a pocket or washbag, so they can be taken anywhere.
They’ve used high-quality bamboo to make these items, so you can be sure they’ll last a long time. Plus, the durable design helps to reduce plastic waste. Oh, and if you’re looking for Father’s Day gift ideas, it all comes in a neat little presentation box.

It would make the perfect bag for work, travel, or everyday use. It has specifically designed inner pockets to hold your laptop, tablet, and other essentials.

When you get a bit older, you start to care more about what you drink. There’s no way a distinguished older gentleman would be seen drinking a warm can of beer or whiskey out of the bottle. That’s why the Gennissy Stainless Steel Flask is one of our favorite gifts for the older gentleman.
Underneath, it’s a pretty standard stainless steel hip flask – it’ll keep the drink at the right temperature and is 100% leak-proof. But it’s the leather finish that makes this a premium gift idea. It’s finished in brown leather and has the Gennissy logo embossed in the bottom right corner. Plus, on top of that, you get a small stainless steel funnel and 3 small cups, so the drink can be shared around.

Every man should have a wardrobe of well-fitting shirts. This might not be the most obvious gift idea, but you can be sure they’ll be grateful for it – everyone likes a nice new shirt. This one is made in-house by Amazon, under their Goodthreads brand. You might think that this means the shirts are a cheap own-brand product, but you’d be wrong. Since Amazon released Goodthreads, they have become a hallmark for quality clothes.
The Goodthreads shirt is made from 100% cotton and is available in 22 different color options. If you need any more convincing that this is a great gift idea, head to the Amazon reviews and see what other customers have written about it. The consensus is that this is a high-quality shirt, sold at a great price. For more similar gift ideas, check out our guide to the best flannel shirts.

AmazonBasics is another one of Amazon’s brands that are taking the market by storm. They make everything, from luggage to ergonomic office chairs, and everything in between. The AmazonBasics Canvas Duffel Bag stood out to us as a great gift for the older gentleman. If they’ve been carrying around the same bag for years, with zips that don’t work, maybe it’s time you bought them a new duffel bag.
It’s got a retro look that is timelessly cool and is surprisingly high-quality for the price. It’s made from a canvas material that is a mixture of cotton and polyester and it’s finished with leather trim. It would make the perfect carry-on luggage or could be used as an everyday bag. Plus, it’s backed by the AmazonBasics 1-year limited warranty, so your purchase is protected.

If you type in ‘gifts for him’ into Google, you are bound to end up on the cologne section of a website. It’s one of those classic gifts that everyone enjoys receiving. A nice-quality cologne, like the Hugo Man Eau de Toilette, can seem like a pretty lavish purchase if you’re buying for yourself. That’s why it’s such a great gift.
There isn’t much to say about a bottle of cologne. That’s why the TV adverts skip straight past the features and benefits and show you a video of a man sailing on the French Riviera with a supermodel on his arm. All we will say is that he’ll smell a damn sight better with some of this stuff.

If you’re buying a gift for a whiskey lover, we’ve found the perfect option for you. You could either give this as a stand-alone present or with a nice bottle of whiskey. The best thing about this Whiskey Globe Decanter Set is that it has everything you need to enjoy whiskey properly. The main part of the set is a large globe-shaped whiskey-decanter and a wooden stand. This alone would be a fantastic present, but they’ve included some little extras to make it special. You also get two whiskey glasses, a set of whiskey stones, a bar-funnel, and a cork.
Add this all together and you’ve got a pretty impressive and comprehensive whiskey-drinking set. Plus, it all comes delivered in a gift box, so you don’t even have to wrap it.

Slippers might just be the ultimate gift for the older gentleman. When you’ve paid your dues in life and you’re settling into retirement, you need a comfortable pair of slippers to lounge around in. These RockDove slippers are designed with comfort in mind. The most important design feature is the high-density memory foam pad inside the shoe. This is supported by two extra pieces of foam padding to make them extra supportive and comfortable.
On the outside, they’ve used a micro-suede material. Not only does this make them lightweight and breathable, but it’s also 100% stain-proof. These slippers are a guaranteed hit with the old man. For more comfortable footwear like this, check out our guide to the best walking shoes.

When we found the super-comfortable RockDove slippers, we realized that we hadn’t featured that other hallmark of retired life: the robe. When you’ve got all day, every day to lounge around at home, sometimes you aren’t going to be bothered to get dressed. The Noble Mount Men’s Premium Flannel Robe is a beautifully-made and still relatively affordable gift idea.
Like all good robes, it’s warm enough for winter days and is made from 100% cotton flannel. It comes in three different styles, so you can find the perfect one to match the upholstery. And there are a few different sizing options. However, the robe is prone to a small amount (5%) of shrinking, so we’d buy a size bigger than normal.

If there’s one piece of clothing that you can associate with the modern gentleman, it’s the cardigan. It’s perfect for wearing around the house or out and about – it’s comfortable, warm, and stylish. That’s why we’ve included this Kallspin cardigan. The best thing about this particular cardigan is that it’s made from a cashmere blend. Unlike 100% cashmere cardigans, this product isn’t going to cost you hundreds of dollars. But, you still get the same level of comfort.
You also don’t have to be super careful when you’re washing this jumper. You get all the benefits of cashmere, without the drawbacks. It’s available in four different colors, has two front pockets, and it’s surprisingly lightweight. It makes a nice stylish gift for the older gentleman.

This 6-piece set of handkerchiefs is the perfect budget for the older gentleman in your life. Kids these days don’t appreciate the benefit of carrying around a set of hankies – you’ll never find yourself in an embarrassing situation that can’t be fixed with a hanky! They’re made from 60S cotton, which they claim is the perfect material for a handkerchief.
Each hanky is 17”x17”, but they are prone to shrink a little bit when you first put them in the wash. They also come in 8 different styles, including some darker ones. They could be used as an everyday hanky or for special occasions, the quality is good enough for both. This might not be the most exciting gift idea we’ve ever come up with, but they’ll come in handy. You can give it to somebody as a travel gift they might find useful.

There are times in our lives when we look to our faith to guide us and the God Is My Guide Compass is a daily reminder of that. If the older gentleman in your life is a religious man, this is an uplifting and thoughtful gift that will last for years. It is a working compass, but it’s designed to be put on the mantelpiece, which is why it comes with an attractive gold display stand.
The compass itself is made from solid brass and measures 2 and ⅛ inches in diameter. On the back of the compass, you’ll find the scripture Joshua 1:9 engraved into the brass. It’s the perfect gift for pretty much any occasion, religious or otherwise.

Every traveling gentleman needs a toiletry bag. When you’ve passed a certain age, you don’t want to shove your toothbrush and other toiletries in with the rest of your luggage. The Vetelli Hanging Toiletry Bag is the perfect addition to any luggage. It’s made from artificial leather (also known as PU leather), which looks just as good as normal leather but it’s slightly easier to clean.
The best thing about this toiletry bag is the way it opens. You can lay it flat and access all the separate containers or you can hang it up on the wall. This multi-functioning opening style makes it the perfect toiletry bag for travelers. And, if you were worried about the quality, it’s backed by a lifetime customer service guarantee.

One of the benefits of old age is wisdom. This book tells the story of more than 50 people who have managed to make it to 100 years old. Paul Mobley, the author, and photographer, has traveled across America to meet some of its oldest and wisest people. The result is a book jam-packed with inspiring stories, invaluable life lessons, and powerful portraits.
If I Live To Be 100: The Wisdom Of Centenarians has been well-reviewed in every major publication and almost all of the Amazon reviews are positive, except for one person who didn’t enjoy it. It’s not just a great read, but it’s the perfect book to have sitting on your coffee table, just to pick up and flick through. Just make sure the person you’re buying it for isn’t too sensitive about their age.
Over 50 centenarian subjects
The Whiskey Stones Gift Set is the second whiskey-drinking set on our list. This one has more of a gothic, old-school feel to it, thanks to the velvet red gift box and the crystal-style glasses. The main attraction of the box is the two, finely-detailed glasses. They aren’t technically crystal glasses (they would be much more expensive), but they look just as good. Then, you get eight whiskey stones, a small velvet bag to keep them in, and a pair of metal tongues.
This gift set looks a lot more expensive than it is, which means you can impress the gentleman in your life without breaking the bank. It also comes with a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee, so if you don’t like it you can just send it back. It also makes a nice gift for men who love to drink.

The next product on our list is something you might not have seen before. It’s a valet tray to keep all of your valuable possessions organized. You can put it on your kitchen counter or bedside table, so when you empty your pockets, everything is still in one place. HOUNDSBAY “Victory” Valet Tray is the perfect gift for the older gentleman that’s prone to losing things.
It’s made from PU leather and faux suede, which gives it a classy look that would suit modern interior design. On the right-hand side is a large compartment for your smartphone that has a small cut out space for a charging cable. Then, it has smaller compartments for coins, watches, notes, and any other valuables you might need to organize.

If the gentleman in your life is into cigars, they’ll need a cigar humidor. This device keeps your cigars in the perfect conditions by controlling the humidity. The wrong humidity can cause a cigar to dry out, so a humidor makes them last a lot longer. It also keeps them protected from dust and other damaging things. The Amancy Cigar Humidor Case has space for 5 cigars and has a Hygrometer on top, so you can keep a check on the conditions inside. The outside of the humidor is finished in PU leather and it’s got a cedar wood interior.
