While shopping for men’s gifts for India from USA some of the popular items are wrist watches, shirts and perfumes. Also latest electronic items are popular. See below some of the gifts that my family, my friends will buy for the next trip from USA/America to India.
A perfume is one of the most popular gifts for men. I purchased this Nautica Voyager perfume, which is a nice and popular one. This one by Guess is more for more for casual/evening use. This Kenneth Cole Black perfume is combination of woody, fruity fresh scent and is one of my favorite perfumes. I usually have an Aspen Cologne spray in my collection and I use it once in a while. Once when I had it on, my father-in-law liked it very much, so we got one for him. Try it, it is a strong one, so using it very sparingly works best in my experience.
Young men in India, especially those who ride bikes and scooters will love windbreakers, like this one by Columbia or this one by U.S. Polo Assn. Both of these look nice and are available in several different colors. These also come with a hood to cover one’s head in case of rain. When riding two wheeler vehicles, these can be useful to provide a layer of protection from the smoke and dust particles. Also check this cool 13 Pockets Travel jacket. which can be useful to carry and organize several things while traveling or riding two wheeler vehicles.
Men like sunglasses. Why? Because it make men stylish in a instant. In past several years we have seen the aviator style sunglasses making a comeback. We can see lots of film starts donning aviators in films and outside of films as well. Check these Rayban aviators, which are liked by most people. Or check these Kenneth Cole aviator. Looking for sports sunglasses? Check these fluorescent sports sunglasses with multiple interchangeable lenses.
Check this cool fleece vest, which looks great and will be useful during cooler temperatures. This is a sleeveless vest, so can be easily useful in most parts of India. For a full sleeve sweater check this one or check this sweater vest.
Since all men use wallets, this is a good for men. Also at some point the current wallet will be unusable and requiring a different one. Check this nice Calvin Klein wallet. Also check this Timberland RFID blocking wallet. You may know that people could steal your credit card information using a scanning from a few feet away? That wallet should protect from such scans. Another wallet with similar feature is this wallet for credit cards. For some unique wallets and different wallets, check these Dynomighty wallets, which can be bought in that half dollar and several different fun styles. This is a 100% plastic item, so it will be very durable, water resistant and recyclable. I recently purchased this wallet, check here for my photos and additional details.
Know someone who like to wear a tie often, get a silk tie. Along with that a a cuff links. Also a good idea to take couple of these with you and decide later on whom to give these when in India. A saw several good choices for a tie cufflink handkerchief set. Optionally impress them by showing how to tie a nice know, I recommend the Windsor knot. There are several websites and smartphone apps about how to tie a tie knot.
Men’s fun T-shirts
For a trip to India, I purchased a T-shirt with a message “Teamwork – A group of people doing what I say”, which was liked very much. Want some fun T-shits as gifts to India? Check these T-shirt ideas
- “I am an engineer. To save time lets assume that I’m never wrong“
- “World’s Okayest Brother“
- “I Don’t Need Google My Wife Knows Everything“

- “I Got 99 Problems But Bench Ain’t One“
Men’s shirts are also a great option to take as presents for men. There is so much to choose from in this area. But if you are not sure of person’s preference, either one of these three short sleeve shirts should do well. See first one here, second one here and yet another one here. T shirts which have USA in it are liked in India for example this one. Shirts which say made in USA are also liked in India, like this one or this one.
This electric shaver is a great shaver from Phillips. It is a dry shaver. If you rather get a dry/wet shaver then check this one also from Phillips. In my experience it takes less time to shave with a dry shaver, but shaving with a wet shaver usually gives a bit better cut. Both these shavers are expected to work with higher voltage in India.
Men’s special mug/cap
Shopping for a dad or grand dad?, consider taking one of these special items like mug or cap. They can either keep the mugs in the showcase at home or they can enjoy it with their daily cups of tea or coffee. For a grandpa see a mug has “I love grandpa” or which has “#1 Grandpa” For a dad try a mug which says “Best dad ever” or this dad mug. A baseball cap which says “#1 DAD“.
Men’s wrist watches
Wrist watches are one of the most popular gift items to India for men. First, a more expensive watch. Check this Invicta watch, which is a gold plated one, and has an automatic movement – so it needs no batteries and is extremely stylish in a stand out kind of way. It can be a great marriage present as well. Next a G-shock watch. Did you know that G-Shock watches came into existence more than 30 years ago to fulfill an engineer’s dream of creating a watch that never breaks? Check out this nice G-Shock watch, which has both analog and digital display and is incredibly rugged.
If you are looking to gift a sports watch, see this Armitron watch. I bought one for my most recent trip to India. I am satisfied with the purchase. It is available in several different colors and should also be available in your local area super stores. But as always, buying online will be much more convenience and will usually have a lot more variety of options to choose from.
This US Polo Association sport watch is a good alternative for a sports watch and looks good as well. This sports watch has all the main features of a sports watch including analog and digital display, chronograph etc and is quite budget friendly if you plan to buy several watches. I also like this elegant US Polo Association watch and this blue one. Lastly if someone prefers a non glamours watch, check this simple and inexpensive watch from Casio.
