Great news: Your son is graduating from university and this calls for a celebration! After four years of “studying” (and of course, your monthly budget allocation for his allowance and miscellaneous school-related needs), you can finally be free of financial responsibilities! Well, this truly is worth celebrating.
But before you launch your son into full independence from you, it would definitely be nice to present him a little gift to remember the momentous occasion by — something that could be sentimental as well as something functional. A new car? Too expensive. A new apartment? He wishes. An expensive designer watch? His old one still works and he doesn’t even wear it much because he uses his mobile phone to tell time. Out of ideas?
How about a pair of really spiffy silver cufflinks instead?
A lot of young guys may not seem to find these little accessories useful as most of them tend to gravitate towards casual wear like jeans, cotton shirts and sneakers, but if they wish to present themselves in a professional manner especially in a corporate setting, dressing appropriately is a must and cufflinks help achieve that smart, polished look effortlessly.
Many big companies these days actually judge their applicants largely on how they present themselves and small features like cufflinks and ties, as well as the actual fit of the suit, matter. These little things are often interpreted as reflections of a person’s attention to details. Also, having style is always an advantage especially for jobs that impose frequent interaction with customers or clients; if you want to be taken seriously, you need to dress the part and at the same time set yourself apart.
But why silver cufflinks?
First of all, they’re classic pieces and never go out of style especially if they come in a really great and timeless design. A lot of men actually keep their first cufflinks – like the ones from their proms or their wedding day – and don’t feel the need to purchase new ones (unless they’re trying to go with a popular trend) as most cufflinks are really built to last, especially since they’re made of silver. Check this out.
Secondly, they can be worn to all important occasions, like in a momentous life event such as a wedding, or that big presentation for work where creating a strong, positive impression can lead to career advancements. Worth mentioning as well is that as a lot of guys get older, they develop a sentimental attachment to these cuff jewels because they were worn at important events.
Thirdly, they’re valuable but rather affordable. The cost of a pair of really high quality silver cufflinks is just a very small fraction of the price of the most affordable designer timepieces out there, and if you purchase those little clock cufflinks for your son, he wouldn’t need a watch anymore! It’s quirky but it works.
So if you’re a little tight on the budget but you wish to gift your new graduate something to remember you and the important life milestone by, consider silver cufflinks as a graduation gift.
