Valentine's Day gifts for the man who has everything

Valentine’s Day can be fraught with dilemmas and what to buy the man in your life sits at the very top of our worry list. After all the panic of Christmas gifting, it can be hard to rack your brain for what to get him now. But help is at hand. We’ve done a bit of mind-reading and pulled together ten gifts every man will want. So when February 14th comes around, worrying needn't be on the cards.

 


1. The great trainers

HUGO Zero Leather Trainers

 

Shoes may seem a slightly unconventional Valentine’s Day gift but trainers are a whole different ball game. Particularly when they're white, sleek and minimalist like these. Bonus points for the fact they can be worn with - literally - everything.


HUGO, Zero Leather Trainers, £139

 


2. The intoxicating scent

DIOR Sauvage Parfum

 

The trick when gifting fragrance is to give one that you would secretly love him to wear, and you’d be hard pushed not to fall for the spicy mandarin and deep woody notes of this parfum. Consider it a hint in a bottle.


DIOR, Sauvage Parfum, £74

 


3. The useful tech

Fonua Beats Solo 3 Wireless Headphones

 

Work commutes are made all the more palatable with music, and music is made all the more enjoyable with wireless headphones like these. They’ll be, ahem, music to his ears we’re sure.


Fonua, Beats Solo 3 Wireless Headphones, £189.99

 


4. The sophisticated cardholder

Coach Card Case

 

In this day and age, a hefty, stuffed wallet is no longer necessary. This is great news for pockets and great news for you because you can slip in with a sleek cardholder that’ll be thoroughly useful and appreciated.


Coach, Card Case, £60

 


5. The cosy sweat

Levi's Sweatshirt

 

If, like us, you love a plan that involves a bottle of red, your sofa and a Netflix documentary, gift something that’ll plant just that idea with a comfy sweatshirt made for evenings in.


Levi's, Sweatshirt, £55

 


6. The suave timepiece

The benefits of gifting a watch for Valentine’s are twofold. It’s personal – showing you’ve thought about his taste – and it’s an investment he might not make himself. 


Ted Baker, Dial Watch, £184.99

 


7. The grooming kit

Acqua Di Parma Barbiere Grooming Kit

 

If you’re in early relationship territory, a grooming kit may not be the gift. But for everyone else, you’d struggle to find a more useful present than a luxurious set made for travelling.


Acqua Di Parma, Barbiere Grooming Kit, £94

 


8. The cool beanie

The North Face Salty Dog Beanie

 

A nice new beanie is one of those bound-to-please presents, particularly when it’s from an of-the-moment brand such as The North Face. Plus, it’s proper cold out there right now... 


The North Face, Salty Dog Beanie, £30

 


9. The elegant coffee equipment

Bodrum Pour Over Coffee Maker

 

We’re all about slowing down, and a pour over coffee maker (a fancy way to filter your coffee for those not in the know) gives him the excuse to do just that. The carafe looks beautiful, his coffee will taste insane and it beats a frantic queue at Leon any day.


Bodrum, Pour Over Coffee Maker, £35

 


10. The cult cologne

Creed Aventus Cologne

 

Following in the footsteps of the iconic fragrance, Creed Aventus Cologne is a cult-worthy favourite. Featuring a leathery base; a heart of patchouli, vetiver and sandalwood; and fruity top notes of mandarin, pink peppercorn and ginger, it’s a mesmerising combination.


Creed, Aventus Cologne, £155
