I'm getting this as a gift. I feel like the first one is a lot more showy. Any thoughts?

Neither. OP, where and when do you think it would be appropriate to wear a belt such as that?

Aren't these belts of good quality? Are there any other recommendations? Thanks again

Ferragamo stuff tends to be pricy for what you get. Chances are you can find a belt out there with good quality leather for much less. Allen Edmonds makes full-grain calf belts, which is a start. If you want something a little more refined looking, try Crockett and Jones.

Ferragamo may have good quality leather but the design is atrocious.

Is it way too showy? Are there any other belts by ferragamo that have a good design?

This will be better than anything you'd get on Bluefly or Bloomingdales:
