When brothers get married, a truly meaningful gift isn't always easy to find. It can't be too sappy or too trivial. It needs to be meaningful to signify the important occasion yet manly since it's usually given to one of the most important men in a person's life. Consider gifts that relate to manly sophistication, indulgent vices or adventure.
When it comes to gifts for men, choosing a gift that can be used every day will reinforce the significance of the moment. Shaving is one task nearly every man is familiar with. A sophisticated shaving kit is something a brother may appreciate. Companies like The Art of Shaving specialize in high-end and quality shaving products including complete shaving kits. An engraved set with chrome and ivory replaceable blade razor and badger fur brush costs $575 on the website as of 2010.
Cigars have been associated with male vices in movies and books for decades. Though not every man appreciates or uses cigars, for the right man it can be an ideal gift that can be shared between siblings. Find cigar sets in stores or online. The Tinder Box website sells cigar sets complete with humidor starting at $49 up to several hundred dollars as of 2010.
Sometimes a shared experience is the best gift between siblings. An adventure vacation offers an exciting and challenging experience that can be something remembered for a lifetime. Choose from exotic and luxurious trips like traveling through Europe via train, to extremely challenging ones like hiking through jungles and mountains. Vacations cost from a few hundred dollars to thousands and from a few days to months. Companies like Gap Adventures let you book online, and this one even has an easy-to-follow guide that breaks down vacations according to difficulty.
