◍ Presents for brothers; 5 gifts to make him smile

The person that has shared your childhood with you is one of the closest people to you and is always there when you need him. You may have had your fair share of tiffs and fights, but you have also shared memories and he is the one person that knows pretty much everything about you. Through the bickering and the laughs show him how much he really means to you with a gift that will make him smile.

As Hesiod quotes “Never make a companion equal to a brother” your brother is the only one that knows your weaknesses and he may be the only one that gets away with exploiting them! Nonetheless its this closeness that mutual no holds bared attitude that makes your relationship special as Maya Angelou quotes “I don’t believe an accident of birth makes people sisters or brothers. It makes them siblings, gives them mutuality of parentage. Sisterhood and brotherhood is a condition people have to work at.”

If you really want to show him how much he means to you on his special day then why not get him something special, show him how much he means to you and how much you care by getting him something that is unique to him and represents his nature and personality. Whether his interests lie in sports and leisure, in geeky games and technology, or maybe his is a little bit of lad and just enjoys hanging out in the local pub. Maybe he is a little quirky, artistic and a bit of free spirit or is he just a dapper kind of guy we? If he ticks any, some or all of those boxes then we have a gift to suit him, our range of men’s bracelets from copper, leather, silver to link and bangle styles have been made with unique techniques, details and laser engraving to suit every style and personality of your dearest brother.

Quotes about brothers

Our brothers and sisters are there with us from the dawn of our personal stories to the inevitable dusk. Susan Scarf Merrell

To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other’s hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time. Clara Ortega

A brother is a friend given by nature. Jean-Baptiste Legouve

a brother’s love exceeds. All the world’s loves in its unworldliness. Robert Browning

From the time we’re born, our brothers and sisters are our collaborators and co-conspirators, our role models and our cautionary tales. Jeffrey Kluger

I can’t work with my brother without laughing. Dick van Dyke
