      He’ll love our Personalized Men’s Accessories and Gifts for Men

      If you’re searching for cool men’s accessories or gift ideas for men, we invite you to take a look at the custom gifts created by our metalsmiths.  Starting with sheets of metal, our artists create personalized, hand stamped graduation gifts, anniversary gifts, unique groomsmen gifts, gifts for dad, and other unique gifts for men.  

       

      For a gift he’ll use everyday, choose a personalized men’s money clip.  The money clips are masterfully crafted and can be customized for your special guy.  The money clips can hold credit cards, too! They make a great wedding anniversary gift, personalized groomsmen gift, or gift for other members of your wedding party.  They are perfect for the guy who loves minimal junk in his wallet or prefer copper or stainless steel metal over a leather money clip.

       

      Did you know that the traditional 7th wedding anniversary gift is the copper metal anniversary?  And for your 25th anniversary, it’s silver. No matter how many years of marriage you’re celebrating, our mens suit accessories make a great gift.  When you need a sentimental gift, choose the perfect anniversary gift for men: a monogrammed tie clip. It’s another of our favorite personalized gifts and men’s fashion accessories.  Choose from copper, nickel silver, or brass, and let us create the perfect gift for the man who loves men’s designer accessories. We like using a personalized tie bar instead of a tie pin as it protects the tie without leaving a hole in the fabric.  Our tie clips look great on skinny ties, for nights out, or for a bachelor party.

       

      To complete the look, check out our custom cufflinks for men, too.  Our cufflinks are handmade and customizable and make great graduation gifts for guys.  Worn with a French-cuffed shirt, cufflinks are the symbol of class and dignity. Most guys won’t wear cufflinks everyday, but save them for a special occasion such as a wedding, graduation, anniversary, or night on the town.

       

      A great focal point of any man’s outfit is his belt buckle.  We love handcrafting belt buckles for men, including western belt buckles, cowboy belt buckles, and other custom belt buckles.  We’re happy to add on a personalized line of text to the front or back of the belt buckle to make it the perfect, sentimental gift.  From mountain ranges, to bears, to modern, geometric patterns, our custom belt buckles are sure to please even the most difficult-to-shop-for guy on your list.

       

      How we make our personalized metal accessories

       

      Every personalized Hattie Rex product is made to order just for you, and made by hand from start to finish.  Once we receive your order, our team of trained metalsmiths begin with a sheet of metal. We use copper, brass, aluminum, nickel silver, and sterling silver.  First, we cut the metal using a pancake die and hydraulic press, disc cutter, or jeweler’s saw. Next, we remove any metal burrs or rough edges with a belt sander. We’ll do the final polish later, but we sand it down first to make sure we have an even, flat surface for the next step.

       

      This step is our favorite because it’s where the piece of metal becomes your customized gift!  We place the metal pieces on a steel bench block and use an antique hammer to hand-stamp your personalized text on the money clip, tie clip, cufflinks, keychain, or belt buckle.  The hand-stamping process is what differentiates our handmade method from machined or engraved personalized gifts. Every letter and number is stamped individually by hand, creating a unique, one-of-a-kind artisan present.  The spacing of the letters is artistically executed, ensuring that your handmade gift for your guy isn’t mistaken for a robot-produced gift.

      Next, the pieces of our money clips, keychains, belt buckles, and cufflinks are soldered together using an oxygen and acetylene-fueled torch.  This part is the most exciting! We love the way fire can join together two pieces of metal, creating a thick, sturdy piece of personalized metal art.  After soldering and cooling, the keychains make their way over to the drill press where we add a hole for the split ring to go in later.

      Now, the personalized metal gifts go through a round of polishing in a tumbler.  After tumbling, we darken the metal to add contrast before they go through a final polishing by hand.    For our traditional keychains, we attach a USA-made, heavy-duty, zinc-plated stainless steel split ring to attach to your keys.  This makes our mixed metal keychains durable and safe to ensure that your personalized keychain will last for years to come.

      The last step is to ship it off to you, complete with a gift box for giving or keeping.  We offer free standard shipping on orders over $50.  This offer is valid only in the United States on orders shipped via USPS First Class Mail and it automatically applies to your eligible order.

      Our personalized accessories for men make great gifts for your dad, husband, boyfriend, best friend, classmate, boss, coworker, groom, or groomsmen. Shopping for someone who has everything?  A personalized gift is always a hit. Our men’s accessories are available in multiple or mixed metals, and can be completely customized by request! If you’re not sure which man gift to get, we offer gift cards, too. It’s the perfect gift when it has to be special.

      What are your products made of?

      We use aluminum, brass, copper, and sterling silver for our jewelry. Our chains are sterling silver. Yellow and rose gold jewelry chains are sterling silver electroplated with rose or yellow gold. Our chains are made in Italy and electroplated in California. We use aluminum, brass, copper, sterling silver, and nickel silver for our pet ID tags. Our split rings are zinc-plated steel and are made in Wisconsin. Individual products’ materials are listed in each description.

      Is personalization extra?

      All of our products are priced to include personalization. If you need extra text applied (to the back, for example), an extra charge will be required for the extra work involved. In general, an extra line of text consists of up to 12 characters including spaces and costs $4. Please email us at info@hattierex.com to create a custom order.

      Will the letters be perfectly straight?

      We use a method called hand-stamping to personalize each piece. Every letter and number are struck individually using an antique hammer. This method creates unique and varying alignments which add to the character and handmade nature of the piece, so every product will be slightly different.

      Do you ship internationally?

      Yes. We ship internationally via USPS First Class Mail International. This method can take anywhere from 2-8 weeks in transit. Customs and fees are the buyer’s responsibility and we will not knowingly falsify any customs documents.

      Will you gift wrap my order / include a note?

      Your personalized jewelry will arrive neatly packaged in a small box. If you are ordering multiple pieces, please specify at checkout that you would like separate boxes. Otherwise, we combine multiple products into one box. Packing slips and receipts are not included. If you are ordering a gift and would like a note included, please specify during checkout what you would like the note to say.

      Are these tags just for dogs?

      No. We’ve created pet id tags and charms for cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, horses, ferrets, plus children and adult humans. Many designs require no modification; just be sure to order an appropriate size for the animal (or human) you are tagging.

      Will the metal tarnish?

      All of our products begin with an untreated sheet of metal. No waxes, sprays, or finishes are applied to the products, which means they will develop a patina over time. Humidity will accelerate the patina’s development. Jewelry polish pads are available for $0.50 each. We recommend storing your jewelry in an airtight plastic bag (one is included in your order) and removing your jewelry to bathe, swim, sleep, or exercise.

      Can I order online and pick it up in the store?

      Yes.  Please select “in-store pickup” under the shipping methods and select your preferred pickup date.

      Can I buy just the pendant?

      Yes. On many products, you’ll find a drop-down menu for our “Necklace” or “Pendant” options. Necklaces include a chain as described in the product description. Pendants do not include a chain.
