16 August Birthday Gift Ideas for the Women and Men in Your Life

Whoever said that gift guides have to be reserved for the  holiday season? Here at Who What Wear, we're proponents of year-round gift guides. There always seems to be someone with an upcoming birthday, so you might as well be prepared (gifts purchased in a last-minute haste aren't usually the best gifts).

While we're all for thoughtful gifts, we think the best sort of gift is one that the recipient will actually use. Accordingly, we sourced an assortment of covetable gifts for both women and men this time, and none of them will cause harm to your bank account. For August, we're endorsing a statement-making pair of sunglasses, a couple of cool patriotic pieces, and our new favorite T-shirt. We guarantee that any one of these 16 stylish gifts will bring a smile to the birthday boy or girl’s face and subsequently a feeling of gift-giving success on your part.
