Whether you travel once a year or once a month, taking a trip is much more enjoyable when you get to use a nice piece of luggage. Inexpensive luggage tends to be poorly made and constructed with materials that will wear out after a few years. Torn shells, pulled zippers, and broken wheels are going to quickly follow any purchase of cheap luggage.
Good luggage is going to cost a little more but it is an investment that will pay off for many years. Leather luggage in particular is a mark of quality. How so?
- Unlike cloth, leather resists pulling, tearing, and fraying
- Leather is more water resistant
- The leather used for luggage is much thicker than cloth
- A leather bag looks better the more it is used
Briefcases, laptop bags, and more
If a large piece of leather luggage is out of your price range, consider a smaller bag. A handsome leather attache case, briefcase, travel bag, or laptop bag is much less expensive than a suitcase but has all the same benefits. Young people in particular are likely to get a lot of use out of a leather bag or carrying case. If you wish to augment the gift, purchase a leather care kit and gift that as well. This will help your loved one take care of this special new present.
The weight of a fine pen makes writing a comfortable and enjoyable task. Each element of a high quality writing pen has been carefully constructed to ensure an effortless flow of ink; the pen will reliably produce smooth fluid lines. Many fine pens are sold in sets consisting of a ballpoint pen, fountain pen, and automatic pencil. Sets come in an attractive presentation box that makes gift giving a snap. Stores that sell high quality pen sets usually offer engraving services. The addition of initials or a date will transform this gift into something one of a kind.
Classy gifts like these have a timeless appeal. They will never go out of fashion and they can be used for many years to come. You can celebrate a milestone graduation or show your affection for a special dad in your life by giving one of these gifts.
