When Christmas comes around you can almost hear the collective groan of despairing women in the men’s section of every store. It’s a well-documented and universal fact that men are very nearly impossible to buy for. At OKA we believe in timelessness over trends and we make sure our gift selection is no different. Our designs are guaranteed to be treasured; we have a thoughtful and individual selection that would make the perfect gift for men of every character.

Hand-stitched from the finest buffalo leather in aged, nut brown with a pale faux suede lining, our Saddle Leather Watch Box features three compartments for storing your favourite watches and a smart, magnetic silver clasp. Part of our Saddle Leather collection, inspired by travel essentials from the colonial era which were practical, rugged and by design, extremely beautiful.
The man that everyone goes to for advice, the man who knows it all (but in the best kind of way) and is constantly asking the hard questions. For the perfect addition to his study, where all his deepest thinking takes place, take a look at the Julius Bust Statue. With the fine appearance of metal, despite actually being cast in a versatile, light resin, this serious statue is a sophisticated gift for an equally sophisticated man.
He’s always got his nose in a good book, whether it’s a classic novel, yet another book on trees or a collection of poetry. Our striking Horse Head Bookends will make a beautiful and useful gift that he’s sure to love. These bookends have been cast in resin then painted grey to resemble a matching pair of ancient stone horse heads, mounted on contrasting black-coloured stands for a modern twist.
Whenever he doesn’t pick up your calls you know exactly where he is, in the kitchen – of course! He’s mad about cooking and is constantly thinking up new and unusual concoctions for all of his close friends and family.

This man has impeccable taste. He has travelled all over the world and allows only the finest objets d’art through his front door – he’ll be sure to hold it wide open for this unbelievably striking set of collages.

Every piece has been cut to the right size, and in the right shape, in order for the collage to come together properly. Showcased in a black resin frame and protected by a glass cover, the collages are mounted on thick, premium quality card.
Whenever you have an untimely light bulb mishap or a new home DIY project, this is the man you want to call. His skills seemingly know no limits and there’s no shelving crisis he hasn’t been able to fix.
