When it comes to holiday shopping, there is always the debate of whether or not to shop for unique gifts or opt for something classic. At Vanscoy, Maurer & Bash Diamond Jewelers here in Lancaster, PA, we’re all about classic gifts that the man in your life will have and use for years to come. We want to offer you great gift options that can be used while working from home or at social events once life returns to normal.

Here are seven holiday gift ideas for him that will stand the test of time!


A timepiece never goes out of style and it’s a gift any guy will appreciate. To really make it the perfect gift, make sure his watch matches his lifestyle. Does he dress casually? Then a watch with a leather strap might be the best option. Does he need a watch that’s versatile? A watch like the Rolex Datejust is both classic and fashionable. We have Rolex watches in store, along with other brands like Citizen. Stop by or give us a call to let us know what you're looking for!


In this case, we’re not just talking about any pocketknife. Instead, go with a luxurious pocketknife from William Henry. A William Henry knife can take up to eight months to create. William Henry’s knives feature unique materials like cocobolo wood and mammoth tooth. These knives also make great gifts to pass down to future generations.

Money clip

Available in materials like titanium, stainless steel, and hand forged Mokume-gani, a money clip is a practical gift that he’ll use every day. It especially makes for an ideal gift if he prefers not to carry a wallet. You can personalize the money clip with his name, initials, or something else that is unique to you and him.


Want to purchase something he would probably never buy for himself? A luxury pen can be a really useful gift, but one that he might not think to purchase on his own. Made in an array of unique and rare materials with stunning designs, a luxury pen makes for a fantastic gift.


Whether on its own or with a watch, a bracelet is both stylish and unique. David Yurman carries a variety of styles, including leather for the casual gentleman or a chain bracelet from John Hardy if he’s a suit and tie guy.


Socks make for great stocking stuffers or gifts to give if you need to shop for multiple people like your father, spouse, or son. Like neckties, you can go for classic colors that he can wear under his suit, or prints that are a little more eccentric, like polka dots.


Cufflinks are great for the guy who frequently has to wear a suit or likes to dress up. They’re a simple touch that adds to his look, but one that he’ll appreciate. Cufflinks are also easy to personalize with his initials. There’s a pair of cufflinks for just about every guy, whether they are understated or a bit more adventurous with their fashion. Consider getting a case for him to keep his cufflinks in when he’s not wearing them!

While you can’t go wrong with any of these ideas, we tend to think that jewelry makes the best gift! Ready to shop for the holidays? Don’t have time to find a gift for him? Our team is here to make holiday shopping stress-free. Contact us to learn more about our holiday personal shopping services!
