HOW TO GIVE
THE PERFECT, MEANINGFUL GIFT
FOR A GUY WHO’S TOUGH TO BUY FOR
Maybe he’s not into “stuff” or maybe he’s the guy who’ll run out and buy the things he wants when he wants them. Or maybe you’ve already gifted so many different things over the years together that it’s challenging to come up with something new for him.
So therein lies the challenge and the potential for victory, because what feels better than getting the perfect gift for the person who is impossibly difficult to buy for?
And since we all have someone we’d really like to wow with our gift-giving, what really constitutes the perfect gift—especially for someone like ours?
1. THE PERFECT GIFT SHOWS HIM HOW WELL YOU REALLY KNOW HIM
And this goes beyond his likes and dislikes.
A good gift says “I knew you’d like this.” But the perfect gift says, “I see you. I’ve listened to you. I know you.” There’s a multi-level expression of care and adoration and for what they love and who they are.
We think that’s the #1 reason why a wallet handcrafted from vintage baseball glove leather is such a perfect gift for the guy who loves baseball.
Because it’s more than just a wallet. Imbued in the leather is history, maybe family history, and connections to cherished memories and childhood dreams.
He opens it up and sees the old signatures, graphics, logos, and even the lace holes on the pieces of the vintage glove. He runs his hand over the familiar feel of soft, competition-aged leather. And above all, he holds it to his nose, smells the leather, and breathes in the romance of the game.There’s simply nothing else on earth that kindles the fire of that love affair like the leather on a glove.
2. THE PERFECT GIFT IS HIGH-QUALITY & WELL-MADE
When we buy a gift for someone we love, we want them to enjoy it for years to come. If a great gift shows someone how much we love them, what does it say about that love if it falls apart within weeks?
That’s why we put such an emphasis on the craftsmanship of every FC Goods wallet. It’s why we cut every vintage glove precisely by hand. It’s why we use premium-quality, full-grain U.S. steerhide for the wallet’s supportive sections. And it’s why our leather craftsmen individually sew each wallet one at a time with relentless attention to detail.
There is simply no shortcut to crafting artisan-quality leather goods, and it’s the reason you can be confident that the gift you give will be a source of joy for many years to come.
3. THE PERFECT GIFT IS UNEXPECTED & SPECIAL
There are lots of perfectly acceptable, good-enough gift options out there. But we’re not looking for “perfectly acceptable.” We’re looking for just plain perfect.
And this might be the thing that really separates FC Goods from the rest: not only is a wallet made from a vintage baseball glove a unique idea in the first place, but because every glove is different, every FC Goods wallet is literally the only one of its kind on earth.
Plus, add the extra touch of personalization from engraved monogramming and what do you have? A gift with him literally written all over it.
No one else will ever have the same wallet as your guy. And that’s pretty special.
4. THE PERFECT GIFT GETS USED...A LOT.
Ok so all that we’ve mentioned so far is fine, well, and good, but if it just sits on a shelf (or worse, in a box somewhere) after it’s opened, is it really perfect? Of course not!
The perfect gift is also useful.
It’s an ongoing source of pleasure and a constant reminder of the thoughtfulness and love of the person who bought it—you!
Ultimately, an FC Goods wallet is just that: a wallet. It’s functional to the point of being used every single day. And every time its owner takes it out to pay, he’ll be reminded not only of his love for the game, but of his love for the person who got him that gift.
And that makes it that once-in-a-lifetime gift that’s as useful as it is meaningful. Perfection.
We get it: buying a gift for someone can be a challenging experience. But when you get it just right, it can be one of the most satisfying feelings in the world.
We’re confident that if there’s a baseball-obsessed guy in your life, that’s the feeling you’ll have when you watch him open the box of his FC Goods wallet. Get him a gift he’ll love and use every single day for years to come.
P.S. We understand that some of you may still have some questions and uncertainties about an FC Goods wallet. We’re a group of people just like you who have seen plenty of companies make big promises that they just don’t deliver on, and that’s the last thing we want for you.
