Ties are one of the best formal fashion accessories to gift to men, the common use of ties is wearing them with formal outfits, whether to wear with suits or formal shirts, that could be at work, formal parties, or even to attend formal occasions like weddings, conferences or meetings.
But what many people are not paying attention to that some types of ties can be worn with casual or semi-formal clothes, as you can notice some people like to wear them with casual shirts in the casual parties, which gives them a unique look and elegance.
And here comes the question…
Is tie a good gift?
If the gifted person used to wear a tie and like them, whether with a formal outfit or casual outfit, then definitely the tie is a good gift for him, but if the gifted person does not wear ties more than two to three times a year, then it will be better for you to look for a gift from other categories.
Which means that you need to make your research to make sure that the tie will be one of the best gift choices for the gifted person.
It is recommended to gift necktie only to those who wear ties more than two or three times a month, because if you presented ties gifts that can’t be used for two times a year, then the gifted person can consider your gift as a useless one .. which for sure you need to avoid, so make sure that the gifted person wearing ties with formal wear or casual wear frequently.
Some recommendations you need to mind before buying a tie gift
Neutral color: we recommend that you buy ties gifts in neutral colors as a default, especially if the tie gift is for superficial friend or coworker because the neutral colors match with many formal and casual outfits. Most of the men do not like to wear bright outfits especially when it comes to formal. unless you know already that the gifted person is a fan of the bright colors and you are so close to him to be pretty sure that he will like your bright tie gift.
Simple engravings: It is recommended to buy tie gifts with very simple engravings, as many people do not like the ones that have crazy drawings. So even if you like the tie you need to remember that you are not buying it for yourself, so what the gifted person will like is the more important, so you have to avoid any ties with leaves, flowers or characters.
Funny engravings: funny ties gifts can make be a nice funny gift idea for coworkers or friends, which you can buy a tie with cartoon characters for instance or animals, etc… because such ties can be worn in some kind of parties, but then those drawings on your tie gift should represent something for the gifted person, so if he likes pizza or donuts then buying a tie printed with such thinks will so fun to him to wear, or if he likes an animal like a sloth, you can buy him a tie printed with that animal.
But usually, it is hard to find such funny ties in the mall, so you will need to search for it and buy it online.
Tie Sets: you can buy a tie set which includes other formal accessories with it, not only a tie, like a tie pen, napkin, and cufflinks and usually, they all have the same engravings on so that they form a complete set together which increases the value of your multi-part gift.

The Seven-Fold Tie: This type of tie is made of a single piece of fabric that is folded 7 times, which makes it so think and wide, but that makes it not perfect for young aged people, The heavy look will make it does not match the taste of many people, so we do not recommend that type of tie gift if the gifted person is in young age.
Skinny Necktie: This type of ties are popular among who want to look semi-formal, they are unique and attractive, we recommend you to buy the skinny tie gifts over the four-in-hand ties if the gifted person is skinny and has a narrow chest because the wide ties will not look perfect on him compared to the skinny ones.
