Men's Valet Boxes: Popular Gifts for Dads and Grads

If you are looking for a distinctive gift for the man in your life then you should consider getting him a valet box. Valet boxes are the men's equivalents of the jewelry boxes that women keep on their dresser tops. The difference here is that men's valet boxes usually have some kind of open storage feature instead of a box fully enclosed with a lid. This article is a guide to some of the most popular valet box options on the market today.

In case you are wondering why a man would need a dresser top organizer then consider the kids of accessories that the typical male usually uses. These include tie clips, tie tacks, watches, rings, cuff links, bracelets and many other items that they tend to use on a daily basis. In addition to these traditional accessories there are also cell phones and other small electronic items. In order to keep all of these items neat, tidy and easy to use, the valet box is the perfect solution.

These boxes are styled for men and have a masculine look to them. Many of the boxes are made from fine hardwoods and some come with inlays of exotic woods as well.  Some of the valet organizers are crafted from leather and feature watch storage. The wooden boxes usually have suede-lined compartments of various sized designed to hold the different types of masculine accessories. If your favorite man has more than one watch then you can opt for boxes that include dedicated watch storage areas.

Some of the boxes have a lid which closes like a traditional jewelry box, while others feature an open area at the top where a man's most commonly used items can be kept for quick retrieval from the various compartments in that top tray. Keeping up with the times, many valet boxes are available with a charging station for multi-purpose organization of electronic devices.

As I said at the beginning valet organizers make great gifts for Dads and Grads. A handsome dresser top organizer is a welcome change from the traditional silk tie on Father's Day or on a birthday. For your male graduate the valet box is a useful accessory which will help him enter into a new working life where he will appreciate being able to keep many items neatly organized and ready to use.

A nice touch to the typical organizer is to put a personalized engraved nameplate on the box. If privacy and security is desired you can opt for a box with a lock and key. As with most items, there is a range of prices that you can choose from. The high-end boxes are constructed with the more exotic woods and leathers, but at all ranges the organizers are finished with good-looking, eye-catching style.

No doubt some men have never heard of a valet organizer but when they receive a handsome and practical item on an important occasion they will definitely appreciate the thoughtfulness behind your gift. So, if you have a special man in your life, and you want to give him something that is useful and unique, consider getting him a valet organizer box.
