Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Another holiday is around the corner– this time Mother's Day. Of course, as always, we have you covered with a gift guide.

The best way to approach gift giving to a woman, or just in general, is to think about what the person's interests are and to simply think back to what they've said they've needed… what's that one thing your mother or wife has been nagging you about? If she has everything she needs, what's the one thing you know she wants? Maybe she's been saving up for something– a new camera, a certain designer dress, well go ahead and get it for her so she can have the gift and keep the money she was saving.

Thoughtful gifts always get the best and most genuine reactions, they show you've been listening and paying attention.

Check out "The (anonymous) Urban Gentleman"  interview, as they playfully say, HERE.

We're excited to be one of the very first men's fashion features, on, or should I say "in" the famous Barney's Window. Side note: I didn't know there was so much "mystery" around The Urban Gent team, lol, but for those who don't know us: Kanayo King, Cindy Samoht, ( <— we're the main two) and there are a small handful of contributors (and a meticulously expanding Urban Gent family) who help make The Urban Gentleman possible. (special thanks to Jean and Max).
