Flatware recommendations

krystle920 | Dec 9, 2008 06:28 PM

I am looking to buy a flatware set as a Christmas gift and I was wondering if you have any recommendations. I'm looking for something that would last several years, not necessarily heirloom wedding-registry level, but perhaps something a step below that. Budget is around $50-100. I've looked at several brands so far including Reed & Barton, Gorham, etc. I couldn't really tell the different sets apart though aside from the design.

It seems like there are a lot of good deals online too (50% off and up), but I was just wondering if there are certain brands or designs that you would recommend over others. The gift is for a single guy so something not too feminine would be ideal. Basically, just looking for something timeless yet still has some character.
