A watch – a good quality watch will never go out of style and can be worn with any outfit

A good quality watch will never go out of style and can be worn with pretty much any outfit. Everyone likes to look even a little stylish, so a gift of this caliber is sure to be appreciated.

The best part about buying someone a good quality watch? You know that they’re going to wear it and enjoy showing it off, and on top of that, it’s actually a very practical gift.

There are various styles available, however a mechanical watch tends to look a lot more stylish than a digital one in our opinion.

A tie in a color that matches his favorite suit or shirt 

Although not every man in their 50’s will wear suits regularly, there’s a good chance they will on special occasions, so a gift of a matching tie can be just as much for you and the man in your life, as it is for him.

Every guy has at least one suit they wear to weddings, funerals, or job interviews so if he’s not wearing them everyday then there’s a good chance he keeps his ties stored with his suits when he’s not wearing them.

If you know what color suit he wears, gift him a tie to match it. It’ll be an easy way for him to pull the outfit together without having to think about anything else–which is always welcome when there are gift-giving occasions on the horizon and the stress of getting ready has already set in!

You could also buy him some novelty socks with something like characters from The Simpsons or Mr. Men on them, or maybe even just get him a gift certificate to the place he goes for new socks.
