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 this month. 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 rolls around, worrying needn't be on the cards thanks to this Valentine’s Day gift guide for him.


1. The great trainers

Asics Japan Mens 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.

Asics, Japan Mens Trainers, £42.00


2. The intoxicating scent

Mont Blanc Explorer Gift Set


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 woody, aromatic leather notes of this set. Consider it a hint in a bottle.

Mont Blanc, Explorer Gift Set, £52.00


3. The useful tech

Beats by Dr Dre Beats Solo 3 Wireless Headphones


Working from home is 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.

Beats by Dr Dre, Beats Solo 3 Wireless Headphones, £189.99


4. The sophisticated cardholder

PS by Paul Smith PS Zebra CardHold Sn00


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.

PS by Paul Smith, PS Zebra CardHold Sn00, £65.00


5. The cosy sweat

CP Company Lens 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.

CP Company, Lens Sweatshirt, £105.00


6. The suave timepiece 

Daniel Wellington Melrose Gift Set


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. 

Daniel Wellington, Melrose Gift Set, £119.00


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 that special someone.

Acqua Di Parma, Barbiere Grooming Kit, £94


8. The practical holdall

Mario Valentino Mario Kylo Logo Backpack Backpack


If he’s the type that struggles to get organised and keep his bits and bobs in one place this backpack might be just the thing he needs to get his life in order. All the storage space he could want, plus he’ll receive extra bonus style points with this on his shoulders.

Mario Valentino, Mario Kylo Logo Backpack Backpack, £78.00


9. The freshest underwear

Lacoste 3 Pack Trunks


Is his boxer drawer looking a little bit sorry for itself? Give him a refresh with this three pack and wave goodbye to aging, ill-fitting styles and say hello to contemporary comfort in three colours.

Lacoste, 3 Pack Trunks, £26.00


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
