Valentines Gift Guide For Men


Last week I published my Valentines Gift Guide for Women and on the post I mentioned how I'm aware that Valentines isn't for everyone. Some people have the view that it's just a way for companies to fleece us out of money, and although there may be a little truth to that I happen to love Valentines day. It's one day of the year where you are reminded to appreciate and love your better half. I know that may sound ridiculous to some, that we should appreciate and show that we love them every single day but with two young children it's sometimes difficult to do. There's usually no time to make a fuss of one another because by the time we have both kids in bed we are both falling asleep on the sofa! That being said even with the little quality time we have together we still have a strong relationship and are coming up to our 10th anniversary! I sometimes struggle with gifts for men so I thought I'd put together a few gift ideas when it comes to Valentines this year, maybe my suggestions will give you a little inspiration.
1. Colt Grey Pewter Beanie Hat - £30.76
I featured a hat from Buff Wear in my Valentines Gift guide for Women last week so it's only right that I mention one which is perfect for the blokes too! The Colt Grey Beanie is knitted with an acrylic and lambs wool material and perfect for the freezing cold weather we've been having lately. The hat is available in three different colour ways and matching scarves are also available. We were sent both of these hats to try out and we've worn them on every walk we've been on since, they are so comfortable and warm!

2. Nike SB Zoom Stefan Janoski OG Trainers - £64.95
Nick goes through so many pairs of trainers a year, he seems to be really heavy on his feet! With going through so many pairs of shoes he tends to ask for a new pair rather than a typical gift sometimes. I know that he's had his eye on this pair from Nike for quite some time now so I'm thinking of buying them for Valentines Day surprise. If I do decide to buy I'll certainly be using this Nike discount code when I do. There's currently free delivery on all orders over £50.00, plus other offers too. It's definitely worth checking out.

3. Enuff Fade Complete Skateboard - £44.95
This is a great suggestion for all those skater boys and girls out there, or for someone who's wanting to take up a new hobby! There's an array of different skateboards available at Skates, amongst lots of other gear. The Enuff range of skateboards seems to be very all the rage at the moment. 
They are a British born brand and their boards are suitable for boys, girls, men and women alike. The Pow Skateboards, Pyro Skateboards and the Graffiti Skateboards range are very popular and have been recommended to us.
4. Alcatel IDOL5 - £152.99
I don't know about yours but my partner is always striving for a new and better phone and is due an upgrade very soon. One phone we've been looking at is the Alcatel IDOL5 which has just been released. It's currently available and is an exclusive model to Amazon. It has a 3GB RAM with Dual SIM, with Android N and Compass, Gyroscope, LTE. An incredible 13 Mega Pixel Rear Camera and a 5 Mega Pixel Front Camera. Octa-core 1.3 GHz MT6753 with 16GB of Internal Storage. A 5.2 inch Full HD Display, 2.5D Dragontrail glass, 2800 Li-Ion Non-Removable Battery External Memory Card Slot (MicroSD up to 128GB) and Fingerprint Sensor GPS and Bluetooth. As you can see this is a really impressive handset and one which won't break the bank either.

5. Vorrei Romantic Dinner for Two Hamper
- £45.00
You can't beat a good hamper to celebrate special occasions and this romantic dinner for two hamper from Vorrei is just perfect for Valentines day. It contains everything you need for a romantic Italian meal; sun dried tomato & pistachio pate, chilli pepper pate, heart shaped pasta, truffle sauce and dark chocolate coated figs. These are all the ingredients you need for a starter, meal and dessert and is presented in a heart shaped tray and ribbon. Just grab a bottle of wine from the shops and your Valentines meal is sorted! 

6. Three Course Dining Experience and Cocktail for Two - £49.00 If you don't fancy eating in this Valentines Day then how about a trip out to a good steakhouse? An exciting suggestion if you live in or around London, or are planning a trip there in the near future is the three course dining experience and cocktails at White's London Steakhouse Co. There are countless date ideas over on the Virgin Experience Days website and with a Virgin Experience Days voucher code there's so many savings to be had too.

7. Moose Gritty Styling Clay - £4.99
This styling clay from Moose is perfect if you are putting together a hamper of products for your better half. I like to make personalised hampers for family and friends as I know that they really appreciate the thought, time and effort you put into it. It really shows you care too. 
This styling product won’t string you along.Add Texture and Definition to shorter hair styles. Real Pumice gives this clay a grainy texture to create defined, chunky looks with texture. With Beeswax for strong hold and a matte finish.
8. Joker & Harley Quinn Itty Bitty - £6.00 each
I fell head over heels in love with Itty Bittys a couple of years ago and we now have quite the collection. For something a little different this Valentines Day how about gifting a pair of Itty Bittys? There are numerous Disney themed couples to choose from, Beauty and the Beast or Lady and the Tramp. There's Superhero pairings like Harley Quinn and the Joker. Then there's a bride and groom Itty Bitty! There's an Itty Bitty for everyone!

9. Valentines Cards from Hallmark - from £2.40
I was recently sent the Valentines range of cards from Hallmark and they are all so lovely! Rather than featuring them all I've picked my three favourites; I just love spooning with you, Love is in the air and to the One I Love on Valentines Day. Prices for these three cards start at just £2.40, there's a card for every budget. You can't go wrong with a card from Hallmark for Valentines Day, they really are the creme dela crem of greeting cards.

10. Guylian Praline Hearts - £1.00
Roses are not the only things that are red this Valentine’s Day. Treat your loved one to a heart shaped red box of romantic Belgian chocolate hearts, marbled and filled with roasted hazelnut praline. The 42g box which contains four praline filled hearts, is the ideal love token, whilst the 105g heart shaped box makes an even more eye-catching Valentine’s Day gift. At just £1.00 a box these would be perfect in a personalised hamper or a valentines stocking filler.

11. Jelly Belly 20 Flavour Gift Box - £9.60
If you want to gift something edible this year and want a change from chocolate then I can't recommend Jelly Belly enough. This 20 individual flavour compartments would make a lovely surprise this Valentines day. 


12. Guylian Belgian Chocolate Sea Shells - £11.99
The Belgian Chocolate Sea Shells are Guylian’s star product. The hazelnut praliné filling is still produced according the unique recipe in the age-old traditional manner, a heritage of the company’s founding father Guy. The secret method of roasting and caramelizing hazelnuts gives Guylian chocolates their signature taste. Guylian Belgian Chocolate Sea Shells are the number one Belgian boxed chocolate brand distributed in travel retail and duty free shops. For any more information see www.guylian.com.

13. Jim Jam Spreads - £2.60

If you’re going to show your loved one just how much you care for their heart, consider a double whammy of Jim Jams! This Milk Chocolate and Hazelnut Chocolate spreads each contain 83% less sugar than Nutella and both are now available nationally; perfect for an unusual but loving Valentine’s Day gift. They’re perfect for breakfast on Valentine’s Day - or the morning after!

So there you have it, my Valentines gift guide for Men! What are you buying your better half for Valentines Day this year? Are you a fan of Valentines Day?

  1. Not sure yet what gift I will buy for my fiancé. Did manage to get a card for him today. Valentines Day Celebrations can be nice. I was brought up to consider others, to be kind, to reciprocate. So I do like to get my loved one a gift for Valentines Day.

  4. I agree with you its the one day a year to show appreciation and be appreciated, however my fiance isn't the soppy type, I usually get for him and receive nothing back so last year I thought bugger it and didnt bother then he came home with card, chocs and flowers for me and I felt terrible, he is working nights this year so we have arranged to go to pizza hut buffet in the day time xxx
