Gifts for the Capricorn Man
While a goat may not seem like the sexiest of animals, you can’t help but reconsider after meeting a Capricorn man. As surefooted, agile and tenacious as a mountain goat, your favorite Capricorn is most at home scaling mountains and navigating precarious cliffs. He is a determined overachiever (some may even call him a workaholic) who keeps his eye on the prize without taking shortcuts. Since he is firmly grounded to the earth, gifts with a practical purpose go a long way, while his traditional sensibilities prefer classic wardrobe staples that withstand the test of time. Logic rules his day, though his dry sense of humor provides such a refreshing perspective that friends and family always come back for more. His high standards and strong attention to detail make him challenging, though not impossible, to shop for. Here are a few novel ideas when shopping for the Capricorn man in your life.
Are they cufflinks or wifi hotspots? They are both—in true James Bond style. The Wifi Hospot Cufflinks ($249.95) are so much more than just another stylish executive accessory. They create a mobile hotspot for all wireless devices. No more hotel wifi fees or email downtime.
Baby it’s cold outside! Luxurious leather on the outside, pure cashmere on the inside, these handsome Bentley gloves ($89.00) will keep the driven Capricorn warm en route to his next business appointment or date night.
Of course, life can’t be all work and no play. Help him unwind as he enjoys his drink neat in the Madison Avenue Whiskey Glass (set of two $24.99). Made of hand-blown leaded crystal, these “Mad Men”-throwbacks provide the perfect backdrop for a classic game like Yahtzee or Clue ($19.99).
Long work days lead into late nights, so keep him safe—and stylishly warm—on evening runs with the Nike Allover Flash running jacket ($500). The breathable, weather-resistant silver exterior produces 400-candlepower reflectivity, creating enhanced visibility in low light.
The Capricorn man is always up for a challenge. Why not sweep him off his feet and help him soar as he Learns to Fly ($200)? Brimming with thrills and exhilaration, this is a gift he will never forget.
