I was trying to think what to write about today. And I thought something that might be good is to make a suggestion for a men's gift. Especially for the special man in your life or your dad or whatever. One of my favorite things I ever gave one of my boyfriends was a gorgeous Georg Jensen money clip. I learned about Georg Jensen when I was in college from a roommate that was fancy and Scandy. He was a big fan of the Jensen pieces, including cuff links (also a good idea...esp if they are vintage). Years later,  a girlfriend phoned me frantically saying she had no idea what to get her new boyfriend and I mentioned the money clip. She asked if I had time to run over to Tiffany's and check them out (because I lived near one). I did. And they had such a great selection that I picked a cool one up for her that cost something like 50 or 75 dollars...only! So here are some suggestions...because I think it's way way more chic for a man to carry his cash in a money clip in one pocket and keep his cards in a sleek/thin card holder in the other pocket. I don't think bulky wallets are sexy at all. :) The below clips are affordable...but you can spend a ton if you want. I think i bought one for a special boyfriend for $400 once. It's man jewelry after all. And PS...you can also hit up your local vintage shop or antique mall and find an old one, too.♡
