Wondering what to get the metrosexual in your life? He's the guy who has everything, but needs something a little different -- something special just like him. These gifts will have him looking so good it's kind of like a gift for yourself as well.

Product: Cyberoptix Ties

Cost: $30 - $40

Where to Buy: Cyberoptix Tie Lab

Extras: Go with silk or microfiber -- these hand-screened ties will also come in a wooden box that can store the tie or even your guy's jewelry, receipts, or spare change for $10 more.

Why I Love It: Ties can be boring, but these are anything but. Get the Clipper Ship tie for the sailor, the Phonograph tie for the music enthusiast, or the Meat Grinder tie for...well, the guy who loves bacon. Tons of other choices are available.

Cost: $47.70 - $49.99 (on sale at press time)

Where to Buy: Levi's, Urban Outfitters

Extras: It's reversible! One side shows more corduroy, the other shows more nylon.

Why I Love It: I bought this for my husband because he is often too hot in a heavy jacket on those not-so-cold days. It has this rugged, Western, but hip feel and looks good with khakis or jeans.
