I love that I’m married to a man who wears french cuffs and cufflinks daily. He’s always loved french cuffs, even before he entered into the diplomatic corps… and I totally love this about TD. They are just so much sexier than buttons. =P I love seeing him put on his cufflinks in the morning. So one of my gifts to him in the past has been his starter cufflinks box and some really quirky cufflinks from THE CUFFLINK STORE.

I say “starter” because there are many other more beautiful boxes out there, but this was the best I’ve found in Jakarta so far. He just had so many cufflinks already that I wanted him to have a proper box to organize them all. Thank God I found THE CUFFLINK STORE! They specialize in quirky cufflinks which are nice for a change, because normally TD wears serious cufflinks and it’s just good to know that on a night out he can let loose and wear something that reflects his personality too. (I don’t recommend quirky cufflinks for more matured men of course.)
My favorite are the martini glass and shaker cufflinks I got him. (Don’t you just love it?!? See pic below.) The dog cufflinks were given by his colleague as a gift, knowing my husband’s affection for dogs.
UPDATE: The Cufflink Store no longer carries cuff link boxes like the one above, however they still have their wide selection of interesting cufflinks. Also they have several new stores. Click on the link below to view their other locations.
