The World’s Coolest Cufflinks

The right accessories can make or break an outfit, and cuff links are no exception. Cuff links don't have to be boring, non-descript accessories whose only function is to hold your sleeves together. They can make a real statement and let everyone know you personal style, taste and even hobbies. Check out these cool cuff links that can be found at budget prices and as big-ticket items.

Everyday Items
You can find cuff links that pay homage to the most everyday of items. Top picks include replica paper-clips, bottle caps and tiny light bulbs. You can even get scrabble keys, personalized to your favorite letters - maybe even the initials of a loved one.

Sports Fanatics
When you are a true fan, you want everyone to know it, all the time. Die hard sports fans can go with their team's colors and mascots as well as using their cuff links to indicate their favorite sports - everything from miniature baseballs and footballs to dartboards and tennis rackets. This is also a great gift idea for dads, husbands, sons, boyfriends, basically any sport fanatic!

In Love And Proud Of It
If you really want to show her that you care, why not have her picture holding your cuffs together in the same way that she holds your life together? Personalized cuff links can have a miniature picture or portrait of your loved one in pride of place on your wrist, so that even at formal occasions there is no doubt that you are taken. You can even get with your initials (or her initials!) monogrammed or the date of your wedding engraved on your cufflinks.

Words of Wisdom
If the phrase is short enough, or you are sure that everyone around you has very good eyesight, you can get words and quotes engraved or otherwise included on your cuff links. Maybe you can opt for your favorite line of poetry or your favorite song lyrics. You probably won't be able to quote Shakespeare by taking a sneaky look at your sleeve, though!

Weird and Wonderful
Famously, the novel The Great Gatsby detailed the use of human teeth in cuff-links. While it's definitely a talking point, you may find that nobody wants to sit next to you at dinner.

Why not jazz up your next formal occasion with some unique and interesting cuff links of your own? As you can see, the sky is the limit!
