Valentines Gifts - For Him

Hi all!

So its February which can only mean one thing 'love is in the air.. tu ru ru.. love is in the air', sorry couldn't help it ;-). Anyhoo I thought maybe I could do a gift guide for what to get the man in your life.

Fragrance

I guess this is the obvious choice for many ladies out there, guys generally like to smell nice and I find they are getting more and more vain about the way they look and smell. Sometimes they take longer to get ready than us! Now that's just not right. lol. My picks are as follows...

If your partner likes classic fragrances I would recommend Dolce and Gabbana The One, this is an amazing fragrance. It's a woody oriental fragrance with notes of cardamom, cedar wood and tobacco, you really cant go wrong with this it's such a manly smell.



For someone who loves modern sweet fragrances I would recommend Carolina Herrera 212 VIP, this has notes of vodka, frozen mint and lime caviar. If they like 1 Million by Paco Rabanne then they will love this, and as everyone seems to have 1 Million this would be the perfect alternative.



Finally for someone who loves a fresh clean fragrance there's Bleu de Chanel, the newest offering by Chanel. This is by far my favourite out of all the Chanel fragrances for men, it has notes of citrus accord, grapefruit and sandalwood and is young and fresh yet masculine and I think such a perfect modern fragrance.


Blu-Ray Discs

Guys love to watch films, and a DVD of their fav film or T.V series would keep them happy and entertained for a while. Try to go for an action, or thriller or comedy, unless they really love rom-coms I wouldn't suggest buying one. If your stuck for ideas I would suggest the Die Hard franchise as all men love this, it's a classic they can watch again and again. Also if you can get it on Blu-Ray as the quality is way better and they'll appreciate it more.


Grooming Products

This is one gift which your partner would get a lot of use out of, it's something they do daily and it's a really practical gift. I would suggest an electric shaver which comes with different heads so it can used on beards or to clean shave or trim. You can get so many different ones, it really depends on your budget, you really don't have to spend a fortune to get a good one. And to be honest you'll benefit from this too as he'll have no excuse to look scruffy anymore! lol

Accessories

Men like to accessorise, let's not lie about it, they love bracelets, bags, cufflinks, scarfs etc, so why not get one of these for him. I think this is a really great idea and it doesn't have to break the bank, you can get really cool inexpensive items from the high street that he would love. Have a look in Top Man or River Island they are always great for these kinds of things. Or if you want to spend a bit more than larger department stores like John Lewis or House of Fraser, they stock great designer gifts from brands such as Ralph Lauren and Paul Smith.





So these are my picks for Valentines gifts for men, I hope it has been useful to you all. Let me know what you think, would you buy any of these? Also look out for my Valentines Gift's for Her coming up next! :-)
