Custom design cufflinks make great gifts for men who are difficult to shop for. After all, what do you buy the man who has everything? I don’t know about you, but my girlfriend says that I’m hard to shop for. She’s probably right because if I see something that I want and the price is within reason, I’m probably just going to buy it on the spot.
All right, maybe I’ll sit there and research it on my iPhone first. But the odds are that I’m going to walk out of the store with it if it’s something that I like. That, or I’ll have ordered it online before I leave the store while I have the product right in front of me. With this in mind, I’m pretty hard to shop for when it comes to gifts for the holiday.
That is why the new Cufflink Builder from Brian Gavin is really cool. After all, cufflinks a.k.a. “cuff links” are something that I probably wouldn’t buy for myself. Although this may be true, I used to wear all the time when I wore suits. Yes that last sentence is written in the past tense. The odds of my wearing cufflinks while living down in Mexico are slim to none. However, cufflinks would be a great gift to give me if I was still living in the United States. That’s because I love the way that cufflinks look with a suit! As a matter of fact, I used to wear them all the time at the jewelry store.
The cool thing about being able to Build Your Own Cufflinks from Brian Gavin is that you get to express your own sense of personal style, your own creativity, and design a look that is truly individual, and not the same old stuff that our grandfathers wore back in the day… most of which was pretty basic.

I think that the tagline that Brian Gavin came up with to promote the idea says it all… “We provide the sophistication. You add the swagger.”
It took me less than a minute to design this pair of oval-shaped platinum cufflinks which are accented by blue sapphires, just a few clicks of the mouse and stunningly simple elegance was achieved.
Of course, they’d be less expensive in Silver. And I could have switched out the center stone for a diamond, or left the center stone as a blue sapphire and used Brian Gavin Signature melee cut diamonds for the accent stones… that is the advantage to being able to design your own pair of cufflinks using the builder from Brian Gavin.
To be perfectly honest, I’m having fun just playing around with this thing, regardless of whether I’m going to have occasion to wear cufflinks in the near future or not. Hey now that I think about it, a custom pair of cufflinks from Brian Gavin would make a great wedding gift for him!
