Male Pragmatism to Gifting


“It is more blessed to give…”; therefore, the gifting season should be constant.

What couples desire as gifts or gifts to give their loved ones represent tokens of love, celebratory artifacts, treasures to share, connoisseur collectibles, and much more. With that, gift selections should betoken a distinct voice.

Gentleman’s Take

As Father’s Day approaches, the expectation of celebrating men, fathers, and father-figure models is a must. Therefore, we took a unique approach and asked my husband, Troy Blake, to create a gift registry from a gentleman’s perspective. Here, he showcases his creativity, luxury taste, and consideration for meaningful gift-giving. Men, too, can take on the roles of planners for their weddings, engagement events or even redecorate their homes.
